Men want their sexual life to be always at peak performance levels all the time form puberty to beyond andropause.

Many people may not know what dangers are there in many of the daily using products which go against proper sexual performance.



High obesity is very dangerous and decreases the performance of sex in man. It increases deposition of fats in arteries. More accumulation of fats in penile artery (by atherosclerosis) reduces blood supply to penile tissues which is the most important factor for man’s or penile erections. Moreover, high belly fat doesn’t give satisfaction in penetrative sex between couple as tummy comes as an obstruction.


Extensive research suggests that long-term cigarette smoking is an independent risk factor for the introduction of sexual dysfunction in men. It also reduces lung capacity and lung functions leading to low stamina and those will not be able to perform sex properly leading to Premature Ejaculation also.

High Alocohol Habits:

Many people think and use alcohol for “great sex”. Alcohol usage in fact increases the desire but decreases the performance. Alcohol is a depressant, and using it heavily  can dampen mood, decrease sexual desire, and make it difficult for a man to achieve erections or reach an orgasm while under the influence. In fact, overdoing it on booze is a common cause of erectile dysfunction.

Laptops & Mobiles usage around lap:

During the past decade, while men’s T levels have rapidly been declining, there’s been a proportionate increase in the use of laptop computers.  As the name states, these portable computers are designed to sit on a person’s lap.  This creates heat near the testicles where testosterone is naturally produced, thus destroying sperm.  Laptops also emit electromagnetic frequency (EMF) radiation, which can wreak havoc on a man’s testosterone level. Men should never put their laptop on their lap unless there’s a 12-inch cushion under the notebook, as this is about how far the EMF field transfers.  EMF shields are also available to put under laptops, which protects the body from these dangerous frequencies.

Since most men wear their phones in close proximity to their testicles–on a belt holster or in their front pocket–EMF can have a negative effect on sperm and testosterone production.  Research published in PLoS ONE shows that cell phone radiation can decrease a man’s sperm count as well as the quality and motility of their sperm. To keep cell phones from zapping testosterone, men should avoid storing their cell phone near their groin area, unless it’s on airplane mode.  It’s best to store the phone far away from the testicles, either in a brief case, car console, front shirt, or coat pocket.  Keep in mind that EMF radiation is twice as strong when in an area where reception is bad. The more power your phone uses to search for a tower, the more radiation it emits.

Corn flakes & High Carb Processed foods:

Processed High rich carbohydrate foods like White Bread and Cornflakes etc are good quick fix for high energy needs. But these things increase arteriosclerosis which will affect blood supply to various important organs like Heart, Brain and even Penis. Penis requires relatively high amount of blood for arousal which get affected by arterio-sclerosis. so better to use natural carbs than processed carbs.

Fried foods:

Though fried food items are very popular, high in demand and tasty, they may not be good for good sex as well as reproductive life. These foods have Trans-fats (hydrogenated fats) which has inverse relation with basic male sex hormone-testosterone levels in body by which sex life will be adversely affected. Burgers, Ghee Parathas, Frozen meats, Packed soups and cakes are rich in trans fats which need to be avoided.



Soya is a good food item rich in many aminoacids and essential vitamins. It is now-a-days more used in many dairy products replacing the conventional milk ( buffalo or cow) to reduce the fat contents. However high consumption of Soy is not good sexually as it lowers the body testosterone levels. In fact saints and monks in Asian countries intentionally eat to curb their Libido by these soy foods.

Pudina (Mint): 


Pudina is commonly used leafy vegetable in India in chutneys, Parathas, Curd-Pudina combinations as side dish. These Pudina laced items are not good for you if you don’t want your Libido/sexuality to decrease. Mint has anti-adrogenic properties. In fact Pudina leaves were munched or chewed by saints intentionally to remove/reduce their Libido

Licorice root extract or Licorice Tea:

Though licorice is good for digestion and loosing fat, it has something not good also. It Contains phyto-estrogens which are proved to lower the Testosterone levels. So beware of it when you are in young and in reproductive age.

Sedentary life:


Sedentary life gives weight gain and obesity. Moreover, 45 to 60 minutes of exercise releases endorphins and prostaglandins which increase libido and sexual performance.

Stress in work:


Stress due to heavy work in office, long working hours, stress due to interpersonal conflicts and personality clashes between couple, financial stress etc causes anxiety, depression and decreased libido and low testosterone leading to poor sexual life. Lack of proper diet and full sleep during stress adds up more problems in sex life.

India so far was weak in laws to protect TGs identity, prevention of exploitation, empowerment and punishment laws on those who do atrocities against them. Transgender Protection of Rights Bill was introduced in Lok Sabha in August 2016.If passed by Parliament it gives good empowerment to TGs in India.

You know the latest???

On the occassion of 69th Independence day celebrations in Odisha Government is allowing TGs to participate contingent in parade marching on Mahatma Gandhi Marg. Good.




LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Tran-sexual) couples are facing more problems in getting their own child due to sharp drop in birth rate in some countries like Sweeden. Gay couples are having difficulty in getting surrogate females to get their own child.The lesbian couples try their own child by artificial insemination but if pregnancy is not planned properly abortions are increasing in alarming levels. Since birth rate is dropping to very low levels with increased abortions, Sweedish couples are turning towards most populous countries like Indian and China with high birth rate.

Indian adoption law permits adoption to international couples and even single parents. Strangely Indian laws do not allow adoption to couples but not to “same sex couples” making LGBT community feeling frustrated.

LGBTQ community is making advancement in their path of gay and homosexual rights, fighting against decriminalization of homosexuality etc but facing this new problem.

Andropause (Male Menopause)

Wake Me When The Economy Improves

Stressed man slumping over his desk covered with bills and overdue notices.


Andropause is other wise called as male menopause. As men get older, the level of testosterone in the body and production of sperm gradually becomes lower, and they experience physical and psychological symptoms as a result of these low levels. This is part of the natural ageing process and it is estimated that testosterone decreases about 10% every decade after men reach the age of 30.It is more gradual in onset than Menopause which occurs in women. Approximately 30% of men in their 50s will experience symptoms of andropause caused by low testosterone levels. A person experiencing andropause may have a number of symptoms related to the condition and could be at risk of other serious health conditions such as osteoporosis without proper treatment.

Although symptoms may vary from person to person, common symptoms of men going through andropause include:

….low sex drive
….difficulties getting erections or erections that are not as strong as usual
….lack of energy
….irritability and mood swings
….loss of strength or muscle mass
…..increased body fat
… flashes
Complications associated with andropause include an increased risk of cardiovascular problems and osteoporosis (brittle bones).

Report to your doctor and get Testosterone estimations to clinch the diagnosis before treatment.

Treatment include mental preparation, counselling, Hormone Replacement Therapy( administering low doses of Testosterone into body) along with vitamins and mineral prescriptions.





There is no specialty degree in Medical Profession as “Sexologist”. That means there is no degree like MD or DM in Sexology course in India as well as in other countries.

Usually, doctors from Urology, Dermatology, Gynaecology, Endocrinology, Andrology and Psychiatry are qualified enough in Male and Female sexual medicine in their course of training while getting their PG degrees. Then those who takes a plunge into the practice of Sexual problems from those specialties become a trained SEXOLOGIST.

Very Famous Sexologists in India are from Allopathic practice are having their MBBS degree first before becoming famous in their Sexology practice.

But unfortunately, the field of Sexology practice in India is dominated by Quacks who has no basic knowledge of anatomy, physiology, pharmocology or knowledge about Psychosexual problems.

Its advisable to search for educational qualifications before you go to Sexologist for treatment.


ALPRROSTADIL, a promising therapy for Erectile Dysfunctionaries(ED)




What Is Alprostadil?

 Alprostadil is a promising medicine used to treat erectile dysfunction (impotence) and to help diagnose certain causes of this disorder. Alprostadil is also used to improve blood flow in newborn babies with a certain genetic heart condition.

Alprostadil relaxes blood vessels and muscles in the penis. This increases blood flow into the penis, causing an erection.  Alprostadil is used to treat erectile dysfunction (impotence) and to help diagnose certain causes of this disorder.

You should not use this medication if you are allergic to alprostadil, or if you have sickle cell anemia, leukemia, a bone marrow tumor, a curved or deformed penis, penile fibrosis or Peyronie’s disease, a penile implant, or if you have been told you should not have sexual intercourse for health reasons.

Before using alprostadil, person should be screened for heart disease, high blood pressure, a bleeding disorder, a history of blood clots, or a disease that could be passed in blood (such as hepatitis or HIV). The injectable form of alprostadil is injected into the side of the penis. The transurethral pellet is a very small suppository that is inserted into the opening of the penis (the urethra). Use this medication exactly as it was prescribed for you. Using too much alprostadil can be very dangerous.

Its strongly advisable to take the first dose of this medicine be given in your doctor’s office so you can be observed for how well the medication works and if it causes any side effects. Do not self-inject this medicine if you do not fully understand how to give the injection and properly dispose of used needles and syringes. Using an alprostadil transurethral pellet improperly could cause damage to your urethra. Alprostadil is used only when needed to get an erection. An erection should occur within 5 to 20 minutes after you use the medication, and should last for 30 to 60 minutes. Seek emergency medical attention if you have a painful or prolonged erection lasting 4 hours or longer.
