How To Diagnose Sex Addiction?

Understand different types of sex addiction. There are lots of different behaviors that comprise the symptoms of a sex addiction. While some of these things may have a level of a social or societal norm, you may practice them outside of that norm or to such an extreme that interferes with your life. Some examples include:

  • Compulsive masturbation
  • Having multiple affairs
  • Compulsively use pornography
  • Having unsafe or risky sex
  • Sadistic or masochistic practices
  • Practicing voyeurism or exhibitionism

Observe common addiction behaviors. Addictions have traits in common, regardless of what the addiction actually is. For example, some common addiction behaviors include engaging in the behavior even though you know it causes harm, finding it difficult to stop even when you want to, experiencing some sort of withdrawal symptoms when you don’t engage (irritability, restlessness, cravings, depression), and hiding your behaviors from family and friends or minimizing them.

  • Do you engage in any of these behaviors regarding your sexual activity? How do they affect you? How does it interfere with your daily life?
  • To get more information and educate yourself, you may also want to look into resources on sex addiction, such as online or at your local library.

Diagnose a medical condition. Some medical conditions can cause changes to sexuality and arousal. You may want to have a medical check-up to rule out possible factors that can affect sexuality. Some considerations include having a brain lesion, endocrine abnormalities, or side-effects from certain medications.

  • Check with your physician whether you are at risk for any of these problems.

How To Deal With An Overly Suspicious Partner?

How To Deal With An Overly Suspicious Partner?

"Who are you talking to late at night?"..."Why didn't you pick my call?"..."Why did the lady next door smile at you? Are you doing something behind my back?" 

If these questions are bombarded at you quite often, you have come to the right place to seek advice. Trust and deception are probably the two deciding factors of a relationship. While the former can make it, the latter can ruin it. Nobody remains happy in a relationship where one has to deal with a hell of a lot of suspicions quite frequently.

Well, if you are tired of being on the radar every time and can't stand the relationship anymore, it is time you call it quits. But, if you really love your partner and want to take the extra effort of saving the relationship, here are some tips to deal with a suspicious partner.

1. Listen to what they have to say: Listen to your partner's concerns and feelings about you. What are their fears and why? A lot many times, we tend to overlook the minute shortcomings of ours. It happens so unconsciously that we never realize what the other person might feel.

2. Talk to them: As much as listening is important, so is speaking. Explain your feelings and actions to your partner. Let them know how important they are to you, and help them see things differently. Take them into confidence and help in strengthening the bond of trust. Honestly, communication can help in mending a lot of relationship defects.

3. Don't be defensive: Your reason to be defensive can become offensive to your partner and can further severe the relationship. It will act like fanning the flame. Instead, let them vent out and seek for some apt time to respond.

4. Reflect on your actions: If you know, that your partner is protective of you and doesn't like you being close to the opposite sex (maybe some specific people), try to consider their feelings. This way their insecurities would lower a bit and bring you some peace.

5. Make yourself more available: Try to bring yourself at their disposal quite often. Spend some time with your partner and try to be what you were during the dating days. Love and emotionally support them. Be sympathetic towards them. 

6. Don't let yourself get affected: Amid all the suspicion and misunderstandings, never let yourself get down with it. Try to be the anchor of the relationship you want to keep sailing all your life. Your sanity and prudence will remain highly critical in re-establishing the foundations of love and trust in your relationship.

Last and not the least seeking counseling:

One has to understand that this suspicious attitude is not always some vicious trait of your partner that has cropped up recently. They might be suffering from deeply ingrained insecurities acquired during childhood possibly due to acute feelings of insecurity and fears acquired from over-controlling, unloving or unpredictable relationship with parents or caregivers. For some, it is congenital. In such cases, it is advisable to consult an expert.

सेक्स करने के दौरान ध्यान देने वाली ज़रूरी बाते

आइये जानते है डॉ0 बी के कश्यप द्वारा सेक्स करने के दौरान ध्यान देने वाली ज़रूरी बाते

फर्स्ट टाइम सेक्स  हो या दूसरी बार लेकिन इसको सही तरीके से करना बहुत ज़रूरी होता है।(Sex) करने का सही तरीका ही दोनो( partner ) को और ज़्यादा करीब ले आता है। लेकिन सबसे बुरी बात यह होती है की इसके बारे में बहुत कम लोगो को पता होता है। बहुत लोगो के मन में इसके बारे में बहुत सवाल होते है की कैसे ( sex ) की शुरुआत अच्छी तरह से की जाए। इसलिए यहा कुछ बाते बताई जा रही है जिसके द्वारा आप  (sex)  संबंध की शुरुआत अच्छी तरह से कर सकते है ।
1. पहले से मेंटली रेडी हो जाए 
सेक्स करना एक ऐसा एक्सपीरियेन्स होता है जो ना सिर्फ़ आपको आनंद देता है बल्कि स्वस्थ भी रखता है, जैसे ज्यादा कैलोरीज बर्न करता और डिप्रेशन से बचाता है। लेकिन सावधानी की बतो पर ध्यान रखना ज़रूरी होता है नही तो इस आनंद का मज़ा किरकिरा हो सकता है, जैसे अनचाही प्रेग्नेन्सी, कोई इन्फेक्शन आदि । इसलिए( sex ) करने के (८)पहले condom या contraceptive pills का इस्तेमाल ज़रूर करे।
2. पार्ट्नर के मन को टटोले 
इस बात को पता लगाए की आपका partner  सेक्स करने के लिए ready  है या नही सेक्स करने का पहला rule  यह है की अपने  Partner के मन की बात को जाने। हर समय हर कोई sex  के लिए ready  नही हो सका है, इसलिए partner  से पहले पूछ लेना अच्छा होता है या प्यार भरे स्पर्श से भी इस बात का पता लगाया जा सकता है की वह mentally  और physical sex के लिए ready  है या नही।
3.सेक्स करने के लिए कभी भी पार्ट्नर के साथ ज़बरदस्ती ना करे 
यौन संबंध बनाते समय सबसे पहला रूल है प्यार । इस रूल को कभी ना भूले क्योंकि ज़बरदस्ती प्यार नही अत्याचार होता है। आप दोनो को एक-दूसरे की इच्छा के अनुसार ही सेक्स करना चाहिए। यह तभी हो सकता है जब आप एक दूसरे से खुलकर अपने मन की बात कहेंगे।
4. प्यार भरा Touch या Kiss करना 
Physical Relationship बनाने करने से पहले प्यार भरा touch करना ज़रूरी होता है। ज़्यादातर महिलाओ को प्रेम संबंध बनाने से पहले मेंटली रेडी करने के लिए kiss करना और प्यार भरा touch करना अच्छा लगता है। इसके द्वारा वे धीरे-धीरे इस संबंध के मेंटली रेडी होने लगती है।
5. कंफर्ट देने वाली जगह चुने 
सेक्स करने के लिए ऐसी जगह चुने जो अपने मन और शरीर दोनो को आराम पहुँचा सके। जो जहग सिर्फ़ आपकी हो वही जगह चुनना अच्छा होता है।
6.फोरप्ले की ज़रूरत 
ज़्यादातर लोग फोरप्ले को कोई इंपॉर्टेन्स नही देते है मगर महिलाओ को सेक्स के लिए उत्तेजित करने के लिए फोरप्ले बहुत ज़रूरी होता है। सेक्स करने के पहले किस, हगिंग, सेक्सुअल पार्ट्स में लविंग टच आदि ज़रूरी होता है तभी महिलाओ का शरीर satisfied होता है।
7. सेक्स के बाद ध्यान देने योग्य बाते 
सेक्स संबंध करने के तुरंत बाद ही अलग नही हो जाना चाहिए, जैसे की काम हो गया चलो अब चलते है। बल्कि एक-दूसरे को प्यार करना चाहिए, kiss करना चाहिए, hug करना चाहिए इससे दोनो के बीच का संबंध और भी गहरा होता है।
8. सही समय का इंतज़ार करे 
प्रेम संबंध शुरू करते समय पेनीट्रेशन करना सबसे बुरा बिहेवियर होता है क्योंकि इससे दोनो के बीच प्यार का बंधन नही सिर्फ़ एक काम को करने की अनुभूति मात्रा होती है। जब आपका पार्ट्नर पूरी तरह से अपनी चरम स्टेट में पहुँच जाए तभी पेनीट्रेशन का सुख भोग करे।
9. लिंग प्रवेश के पहले कुछ बातो का ध्यान रखे 
सेक्स का आनंद उठाने के लिए पहले कुछ बातो को जान लेना ज़रूरी होता है। महिलाओ के वेजाइना के बारे में अच्छी तरह से जान ले। हो सकता है पहली बार में को इस बात का पता ना हो की वेजाइना किधर है। इसलिए बिना जाने वे लिंग का प्रवेश करने की कोशिश करते है जिससे महिलाओ को दर्द का अनुभव हो सकता है। इसलिए बिना शर्म किए अपने पार्ट्नर की मदद ले।

How Does a Woman Squirt During Sex?

How Does a Woman Squirt During Sex?

Do Indian women Squirt !! How to Induce squirting? The simple answer –Yes!

Achieving an orgasm is the pinnacle of sexual intercourse. This is marked by the ejaculation of semen for men, but not all women ejaculate while orgasming. However, it is possible to make a woman ejaculate or squirt. The trick here is stimulating a woman’s G-spot on the anterior walls of the vagina.

Stimulating the G-spot while having intercourse may be a little difficult, and if you really want to give a woman an orgasm worth remembering, a little foreplay goes a long way. It is important for the woman to be completely relaxed in order to allow herself to let go and ejaculate. It could also be a good idea to use the restroom so that she is not worried about urinating while squirting.

By inserting your middle and index finger with our palm side up, you should be able to feel the G-spot two to three inches inside the vagina. The G-spot typically has a ridged, bumpy texture and feels rougher than the surrounding area. This spot is usually more easily accessible when the woman is already sexually aroused.

You could also use water based lubricants on your fingers to prevent any possible friction. Flex your knuckles open and shut to stimulate this spot. Through all of this, do not put any pressure on the woman to ejaculate and don’t be in a hurry. Creating a fantasy or experimenting with movement and varying levels of pressure can make the experience more pleasurable. Simultaneously, you could use your other hand to caress and stimulate other erogenous zones. However, when she begins to squirt, maintain a steady rhythm. While men can ejaculate very easily, it may take a lot of patience and perseverance to make a woman squirt. Even then, not every woman will squirt and hence do not try and force it.

Natural herbs can also help intensify a woman’s orgasm and trigger squirting. This is because they increase blood flow and sensations in the genital area and ease tensions. Some well-known herbs that may be used as aphrodisiacs include the Yohimbe bark, damiana, maca, oat straw and horny goat weed. The easiest way to benefit from these herbs is to drink a tea made by steeping them in hot water. Increasing the intake of foods such as spinach, olive oil, fish, garlic, nuts and chocolate can also increase a woman’s libido and help her achieve an orgasm.

How could homeopathic remedies help you?

Homeopathy is considered as very effective and safe mode of treatment which does not have any side effects on the body like other medicines. In homeopathy, it works from the root of the problem, cure the problem so that, there won't be any scope of it to happen again. 

Sexual function is a complex interaction involving a number of neurotransmitters and hormones, and you are turned on only when there is a balance between inhibitory and excitatory pathways in the brain.

Premature Ejaculation is associated with several factors such as erectile dysfunction, stress, anxiety, relationship problems and some biological causes. The homeopathic medicines are very effective and work from the basic level of the problem and cure it, right from the roots.

The homeopathic medicines are very easy to take and the person does not become habitual of it. Homeopathic medicines to increase sex time do not have any harmful effects on the male reproductive system. There are several medicines in the homeopathy to avoid premature ejaculation and give you some extra time in bed with your partner.  

Homeopathy works by stimulating the body’s own healing system. Your homeopath will prescribe medicines only after a thorough evaluation of your case to find out the cause and extent of your loss of libido. They will definitely ask you questions regarding your intimacy with your partner. For example, they may ask you questions like ‘Do you feel lazy to initiate sex?’ or ‘How’s your relationship with your partner?’ or even ‘Does your partner work hard to arouse you?’

You may have to get tests done to rule out diseases such as diabetes, thyroid, or hormonal imbalance. Significant loss of erection in men and neurological symptoms in women need further investigations.
Low sex drive can be present even without underlying diseases. Homeopathy can treat such cases also.

Prescribing a homeopathic remedy for your low libido can take a little more time than prescribing treatment in allopathy. This is because the remedy you are given has to match the symptoms you experience and your state of mind.

Since homeopathic prescriptions are individualized, you need to ask your homeopath as to when you can expect to see results. However, once relief is felt you should stop taking them. And if you don’t feel relief over a certain period of time, that means, you are probably taking the wrong homeopathic remedy.

Some tips and tricks:

  1. Talk openly with your partner about your sexual dysfunction 
  2. Daily exercise is helpful to increase sexual drive
  3. Try to keep your body free from obesity 
  4. Take a balanced diet filled with plenty of fresh vegetables and fruit

Male Multiple Orgasms: Myth Or Fact?

Male Multiple Orgasms: Myth Or Fact?

Male Multiple Orgasms: Myth or Fact?

Men have long been fascinated by the fact that women are capable of having multiple orgasms. Perhaps because so many men find their own orgasms to be so enjoyable, males are often curious as to whether they could ever be capable of experiencing those multiple waves of pleasure. And if so, how? Is it a matter of some lucky physical trait? Or is a man simply going to have to get used to the fact that one wonderful orgasm is enough and not be greedy about having more?

Multiple orgasms

What exactly is a multiple orgasm? There is debate over the exact definition of this oft-used phrase, but in general it refers to the ability to experience more than one orgasm during the same sexual situation (whether through partner sex or through masturbation). In general, there is some "down time" between the orgasms, usually a few minutes - although it can be shorter or longer.

Hard statistics are difficult to come by. One survey found that 15% of women have experienced multiple orgasms at least once, where another found the figure was 26%.

In women, the multiple orgasm is essentially dependent upon proper stimulation of the clitoris - which means that it needs to be neither over- nor under-stimulated. Since the clitoris can become very sensitive as a consequence of a first orgasm, finding the "just right" level of stimulation to achieve a second is especially tricky.


Meanwhile, men are not usually built for multiple orgasms. Although it is possible to orgasm without ejaculation, usually the two are linked - and after ejaculation, a man's physical processes typically begin making a second ejaculation difficult. Most notably, the penis tends to lose its erection rather quickly as blood is released from the organ.

Very few scientific studies have focused on male multiple orgasms. One 2016 study could only locate 15 peer-reviewed, published documents. Some of the documents are single case studies, such as a 2015 paper which examined a man who has regularly experienced multiple orgasms since he began ejaculating at age 15. During the study, he experienced six orgasms in the space of 36 minutes, maintaining his erection throughout. Another study documented an individual who experienced three orgasms, though he did not ejaculate until the final one.

Most studies seem to indicate that men who do experience multiple orgasms experience the first one with ejaculation, but that the subsequent ones are "dry." However, there are exceptions to this.

Although this has not been definitively proven, it appears that a man's prolactin levels may determine whether he can orgasm multiple times. Prolactin is a hormone, the levels of which tend to rise in men after they orgasm. This seems to have a "dampening" effect on their libido. So while studies have not been done to prove this, it appears that men who can experience multiple orgasms may be doing so because they produce less prolactin - or perhaps because something overrides the prolactin after it is produced.

All of which is to say that yes, some men can indeed experience multiple orgasms - and perhaps one day, science will find a way to make this more achievable for more men.

When that day comes, a man wants his penis to be in good enough shape to withstand such ecstasy - so guys should daily apply a first class penis health creme (health professionals recommend Man1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin). There are two ingredients in particular to watch out for in a crème: vitamin C and L-arginine. A guy wants vitamin C because it is a component of collagen, which keeps penis skin elastic and is vital for erections (as well as helpful for cardiovascular health). And L-arginine is an amino acid which helps the body produce nitric oxide - which in turn keeps penile blood vessels open for the increased blood flow which enables erections to occur.

Sex After Heart Attack- Is It Safe?

Sex After Heart Attack- Is It Safe?

It is crucial to take care of your body after a heart attack and following certain rules mentioned by your doctor is necessary. One of the rules is that you cannot overexert. Therefore, most people believe that sex after a heart attack is not safe.

Sex is an essential component of a healthy life. According to cardiologists, it is safe for people to have sex after a heart attack. When you feel better and healthy, you can resume sexual activity. However, you must keep a few things in mind before resuming sex after a heart attack. Things you should know about having sex after a heart attack. Here are some important things that heart attack survivors should know about having sex after heart attack:

  1. Wait after having a heavy meal: Cardiologist Michael Miller says that heart attack survivors should wait for one to three hours after having a heavy meal for having sex. Waiting a few hours will allow their body to digest the food properly. As a result, it will reduce stress on the heart while having sex.
  2. Engage in mild physical activities to see if you are ready for sex: It is not wise to resume sexual activity immediately after a heart attack. If you had a myocardial infarction (MI), you should wait for at least one week. Dr. Miller says that one week is fine for patients who had an uncomplicated heart attack. However, before having sex, patients should engage in mild physical activities like brisk walking and climb the stairs. If they are able to do it without experiencing chest pain, fatigue and shortness of breaths, they can resume sexual activity.
  3. Wait till there is adequate healing: People who had a coronary bypass surgery need to wait at least six to eight weeks for resuming sexual activity. Until there is adequate healing of the chest region, people should not indulge in sex.
  4. Sexual challenges are common after a heart attack: Sex may not be the same as it was before you had a heart attack. Most men, who had suffered from a heart attack, reported of sexual challenges such as disinterest in sex, erectile dysfunction, and performance anxiety after a heart attack.
  5. Sex doesn’t cause heart attacks: It is a myth that having sex can cause another heart attack. According to a research published in the American Journal of Cardiology by James E Muller, the risk of sexually triggered myocardial infarction (MI) is extremely low. Sexual activity carries a negligible risk of causing a heart attack.

If you feel any discomfort while having sex, stop and take rest for a while. If the symptoms of angina do not go away in a few minutes, call your doctor for help. Have sex when you feel totally comfortable, in a cosy place. Be honest with your partner about your feelings and concerns so that you don’t feel anxious while having sex. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Uterine Prolapse - Know The Risks It Can Cause!

Uterine Prolapse - Know The Risks It Can Cause!

The uterus or womb is a strong structure that is held up by the pelvic muscles and tendons. In case that these muscles or tendons extend or get distinctly powerless, they are no longer ready to support the uterus, bringing about prolapse. Uterine prolapse happens when the uterus hangs or slips from its ordinary position, into the vagina or birth channel.

Uterine prolapse might be fragmented or complex. A deficient prolapse happens when the uterus is just halfway drooping into the vagina. An entire prolapse depicts a circumstance in which the uterus falls so far down that some tissue rests outside of the vagina.

The danger of having a prolapsed uterus increases as a woman ages and her estrogen levels diminish. Estrogen is the hormone that keeps the pelvic muscles solid. Harm to pelvic muscles and tissues during pregnancy and labor may likewise lead to prolapse. Women with more than one vaginal birth and in their postmenopausal period are under the most significant risk. Any action that puts weight on the pelvic muscles can expand your danger of a uterine prolapse. Different variables that can increase your risk for the condition include:

  1. Obesity
  2. Constant coughing
  3. Constipation

Women who have a minor uterine prolapse might not have any side effects. Direct to serious prolapse may bring about side effects, for example:

  1. Having an inclination that you are sitting on a ball
  2. Vaginal bleeding
  3. Expanded discharge
  4. Issues with sex
  5. Feeling the uterus or cervix leaving the vagina
  6. A pulling or substantial feeling in the pelvis
  7. Constipation
  8. Bladder infections

In case that you experience these symptoms, it is important to see your specialist. Without appropriate diagnosis, the condition can weaken your vagina, bladder, and sexual capacity. Treatment is not generally fundamental for this condition. In case that prolapse is serious, talk with your specialist about which treatment choice is suitable for you. Nonsurgical medicines include:

  1. Shedding pounds to take the strain off of pelvic structures
  2. Maintaining a strategic distance from truly difficult work
  3. Doing Kegel works out, which are pelvic floor exercises that strengthen the vaginal muscles
  4. Taking estrogen substitution treatment
  5. Wearing a pessary, which is a device embedded into the vagina that fits under the cervix and pushes up and settles the uterus and cervix

Surgical medications include uterine suspension or hysterectomy. During uterine suspension, your specialist puts the uterus once again into its normal position by reattaching pelvic tendons or utilizing surgical materials. During a hysterectomy, your specialist expels the uterus from the body through the stomach area or the vagina. Surgery is usually successful; however, it is not suggested for women who anticipate having a baby later on. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Sex During Pregnancy - Visit A Sexologist And Know All!

Sexology, by definition, refers to a scientific study of human sexuality to include sexual functions, interests, and behaviors. A clinical sexologist deals with the treatment of sexual and relationship issues. It covers all aspects to include biological, psychological, sociological, and historical information. A sexologist is more commonly known as a sex therapist. With sex life slowing down with pregnancy, there are many questions that people have. Read on to know some of these and their brief answers.

Is it safe to have sex during pregnancy?
– A healthy sex life through pregnancy is encouraged, to keep the relationship healthy and happy. In many cases, not having an active sex life can be a cause of rifts.

We were not aware about the pregnancy, so we continued with normal sex life, is that okay?
– It is perfectly okay, as sex is considered safe throughout pregnancy until the water breaks. Of course, the physical comfort of the woman should be taken into account, else there is no harm to an active sex life. With increased levels of estrogens and progesterone in the blood, the woman wants to have more sex but is often scared.

What positions are better during pregnancy?
- Any position which does not add pressure on the belly. Spooning, woman on top, and other positions which the couple finds comfortable can be used without any harm.

Till what stage of pregnancy can we have sex?
- From a medical point of view, sex is allowed until the water breaks. However, the physical comfort of the woman should be taken into account. Not adding pressure on the belly is advisable.

Do uterine or gynecologic problems would mean a complete no-no to sex?
- If you have a normal pregnancy, then there are no medical limitations to an active sex life. However, if the pregnancy has complications, then you should be extra-cautious. For instance, a placenta previa where the placenta has slid down. Secondly, cervical insufficiency, expected premature labor, abdominal pains, dilated cervix, unexplained vaginal bleeding, and ruptured waters are conditions where sex is absolutely not allowed. There could also be where the male is having urinary infections.

What are some things to keep in mind when it comes to sex during pregnancy?
- It is completely normal to feel a strong urge to have sex during pregnancy. The increased hormone levels are responsible for this. In addition, some vaginal bleeding is also normal with sex. There is no harm to the baby with sex, which is fully protected in the womb. Be frank to discuss any concerns with your doctor and get your doubts clarified.
