World Sexual Health day- Dispel your myths !

Diploma in Family Medicine, M.Sc - Psychotherapy
Sexologist, Pune

On the occasion of world sexual health day.
This day is being celebrated every year since 2010 by world association for sexual health. 
This year the theme is sexual health: eilminate the myths.
 As talking about sex life is considered a taboo, a lot of myths and misconceptions related to sexuality are rampant in all age groups and all the populations, rich or poor, educated or uneducated. Most of the them are wrong beliefs and are potenetially harmful to one's sexual and marital health.

Also, many industries are making huge amounts of money by feeding in such wrong beliefs to the society, such as spurious medicines, oils, illegal drugs, and such related services who offer miracle cures and charge huge amounts of money for conditions which are not even a disease. E. G dhat syndrome. They are doing so by instilling fear and ill-based beleifs in people's mind.

For those who are interested in educating themselves and live a better healthy life, here are some discussions

Some common myths dispelled

1. Menstrual blood is impure and women become impure during menstruation.
Correction: menstruation is normal physiological process in the womans body, there is nothing abnormal or sinister about it.

2. If a couple is not able to have a baby, it is the woman who is" baanz" and responsible for not getting pregnant.
Correction: in case of infertile couple the infertility factor may be due to either the male or the female or somtimes with both the partners.

3: some women are unable to bear a male child! sometimes such woman is abandoned or divoreced.
Correction: according to todays knowledge, the sex/gender of the unborn child depends entirely on the male sperm which has fertilised the ovum. If sperm carried the female chromosome the child will be a female and vice versa. So a woman has little of no role in determining the sex of the unborn child.

4. Sex is only for procreation (for having babies) and not for recreation (for mutual enjoyement).
Correction: in case of human being unlike animals, sex is basically meant for mutual pleasure and not just for having babies. Or else human beings will have to give birth to millions and trilions of babies every time they had sex, cause the semen contains millions of live sperms.

5. Sex and sexual pleasure is the forte of the men and women are only supposed to comply to men's wishes.
Correction: in human beings, both men and women are endowed with enough intelligence as well as body capacities. A women also has the capacity of wanting, and enjoying sex just as her male partner and for a happy couple life, both partners should make each other happy in bed too.

6. The sex life ends with women's menopause and the men crossing 40 to 50 years of age.
Correction: most men if are in good health after 40s, are able to remain sexually active well in their 70s or even 90s. Most women after late 30s or after menopause, in fact feel more interested in sex because they no longer fear getting pregnant.

7. A man can get erection whenever he wants.
Correction: just as a woman may have ups and downs of sexual desire, similarly men also go variation in their libido or erection depending upon physical condition, stress etc.

8. Masturbation and night fall leads to sexual dysfunction and loss of sexual power.
Correction: mastrubation and night fall are normal physiological processes of the body. They are as natural as feeling hungry and passing stools every day. They do not cause any loss of sexual power unless they have formed addictions. 

9. To satisfy women men should have long and thick penis.
Correction: satisfaction depends upon the intimacy and communication between two partners and the mutual ability to pleasuer each other. It is the not the cup that matters, it is the coffee inside the cup which is important.

10. A woman is virgin only if her hymen is not broken or only if she bleeds during first coitus.
Correction: there are no sureshot methods to gauge the intactness of virginity in males as well as in females. In a woman, the hymen may be absent altogether or may have broken duing running or cycling etc.

11. Sex and talking about sexual health is obscene and absurd.
Correction: making it a taboo will in fact spread lot of false information. If treated in a scientific way, talking about sex can be as normal as talking about normal life events.

12. Homosexuality is choice / homosexuality is a disease
Correction: people do not choose to be homosexuals, they usually exhibit or express what they are really born with! one does need to rememebr there can be compelling factors such as blackmail, emotional/physical, or lack of availability of opposite sex partner. 

13: sex education spoils the youth and encourages them to experiemnt.
Correction: any education imparts knowledge and helps you to make informed decisions, so is true with sex education. It makes one a responsible human being.

 Sexual health is the right of every person.

It is very much likely that she will put on some weight in future and her breasts will become more voluminous. About her sexual feelings....looks like your relationship is not in a happy place right now. Avoid forcing sex on your partner.

Whether to have sex during periods is entirely dependent on the couple's comfort. Check with your partner about any pain or hygiene issues. To avoid chances of infection it is better to use condoms.

There is nothing wrong in satisfying your sexual urge when your wife is pregnant. In fact, if her pregnancy is normal i.e. if she does not have any problems associated with pregnancy you two can continue your sex life if she is comfortable.

Miss, unless you tell your future husband about your past relationship, it is unlikely he will find out. Vagina is elastic, in the absence of regular sex, it is likely to go back to its original size. AS far as the darkening is concerned, Indians are dark skinned people and some amount of darkening is age related. At the age of 30 not many Indian women will have a pink vaginal orifice. I think you should put your fears to rest, and face your new relationship with an open mind. Do not carry your baggage with you. If the environment is not liberal and friendly, do not volunteer to discuss your past. If at all the past needs to be discussed, let both partners discuss it.

Is Your Weight Affecting Your Sex Life?

Is Your Weight Affecting Your Sex Life?

Apparently  the present generation may be better nourished than our previous generations  

We all are noticing a huge tendency towards piling on tyres these days. With our urban busy lives, long hours of driving to work and back, doing our desk jobs sitting for more than 8 to 10 hours a day, and hiring help for doing house chores, ordering ready-made food every now then and partying almost every weekend , Yes most of us are leaning towards obesity.

As soon as your BMI (Basal metabolic Index) increases to more than 30, you start heading towards joining the HEAVY WEIGHT CLUB.

It is a well known fact that obese or overweight people are teased, picked upon, harassed and even discriminated by surrounding people. Be it a child, a teenager or an elderly woman, overweight people do undergo “body shaming” in almost every situation.  

Even after an obese woman or a man finds a suitable mate and gets married, it is possible that the road may not be smooth for them. An overweight person thinks he has a problem and then naturally would seek out someone with a problem too.   

Let Us See Why

Sex life is something of a difficult topic for people to talk about for both men and women alike.  

Obesity is not just a physical issue; it's a psychosocial issue involving body image and performance anxiety.

When you compare both men and women, they both will have their set of problems. The st statistics  show that the sexual quality of life is most impaired for women, individuals with Class III obesity, and patients seeking gastric bypass surgery.

Getting Married May Just A New Beginning For Overweight People And A New Reason To Intensify Your Efforts To Get The Control Of Your Weight.

SEXUAL HEALTH as defined by the World Health Organization,

is “a state of physical, emotional, mental, and social well-being in relation to sexuality.

What are the pitfalls to guard against when you are overweight ? and Why ?

In men, Obesity can be a major cause of erectile dysfunction. Obesity may cause lack of the male hormone, testosterone which then severely hampers sexual function.  

You may experience lack of enjoyment of sexual activity, lack of sexual desire and may start avoiding  sexual encounters altogether.

Obesity goes hand in hand with low self esteem, depression and difficulty in sexual performance due to body habitus. Many times depression and or hormonal problems may make you obese, and inability to enjoy a good sex life may compound your difficulties.

Obese individuals are predisposed to development of type 2 diabetes, hypertension, arthritis, hormonal dysfunction all of which are going to adversely affect your sex life.

Development of pot belly seems to be the major factor in causing most of the problems.  

In women, especially the younger ones, PCOD polycystic ovarian disease, seems to be leading cause or effect of obesity. These young ladies are also likely to develop acne, excessive facial or body hair making them much more anxious about their looks and lose their self esteem and confidence.

The obesity related sexual problems are much more common in women, mainly because of

“How do I Look” anxiety.

It is impossible to feel SEXY  if you are not feeling Good about yourself !!  For most women’ Thinner is Sexier”... 

Many new Moms, will develop aversion or avoidance towards sex because of addition of ungainly pounds. A woman needs to find herself as attractive to her man.

If you have been Obese most of your life, the chances are that you shall develop diabetes mellitus, arthritis, and you may become vulnerable to some of the cancers.  Each one or either one of the above conditions, will take you away from a blissful healthy sex life. Diabetes will make you lose your sensitivity, your genital hygiene  by causing urinary infections and nerve damage.

Being overweight you may exhaust your hormones and may experience early menopause or thyroid problems. Though menopause does not signify the end of your sex life, it certainly will bring the end closer.

I am 23 and my penis is comparatively small, it won't be more than 3-4 inches. I have started feeling conscious. Is there any way that I can increase the size of my penis. I have been suffering from phimosis and was operated for the same and now I am all good. I want to increase my penis size.

It is very good that you have undergone the surgery to cure your phimosis. If you do not have any pan issues, try massaging the penis everyday with Himcolin gel and take sachets of E-Drive one sachet every night for six months.

You seem to having premature ejaculation . Start exercising including pelvic floor exercises. Pay more attention to foreplay rather than aiming at intercourse.

Once you have achieved your full growth potential it is unlikely your reproductive organs will shrink. I hope you are not putting on weight in your lower abdominal area, that might hide the penis.
