First Night FailureFirst night failureIntroductionThe first night or honeymoon night of marriage traditionally means the first sexual encounter for an Indian couple. It is the moment when society legally permits the consummation of the union of man with women. The first night is the most awaited night in one's life.Unfortunately, as sexologists, we come across a large number of clients failing on their night. The first-night failure' often results in sexual dysfunctions, social maladjustments, marital disharmony and even divorce.Why failure?The first night has been given special importance from ancient days. Our Sanskrit literature gives detailed descriptions and exotic fantasies woven around the first night. In the kumar saum bhava, Kalidasa takes liberty in describing the love dalliance of the newly wedded shiv and uma.Our cinema has glorified the first night. The entry of the bridegroom in the decorated bedroom, flower bedecked beds, the bride, veil, glass of milk, sweets and the magic moment begins! today, a large number of novels in vernacular languages are available under erotic titles glamourising the sexual raptures of the first night. So the first night become the most special night of a young couple's life i. E the golden night'. In our culture, till today in many parts of india, adolescent boys and girls are not allowed to interact with each other socially (except in some tribal societies) once the girls attains puberty. Marriages are fixing by elders. There is hardly any change of courting. The first night in reality becomes the first encounter' to know each other. Some young individuals are scared to death about their performance on the first night. Their fear is doubled by misguiding friends, yellow books, white self-advertised pamphlets by quacks and blue films. They have a feeling of sexual inadequacy, 'kamjori' or believe that they have become impotent and life has come to an end.One of the most worrying question on a man's mind whether on the first night' he will succeed in breaking the virginal seal' with bang, as this is supposed to make a successful marriage. Because of this fear, many eligible bachelors avoid marriage. Sometime they end up buying so called sex tonic advertised in lay press or even rejuvenators even prescribed by consultants. To avoid first night' failures some of them even visit prostitutes to test their potency! a women enter into the first night with anxiety, tension, fear and a variety of other emotions. The greatest worry on the mind of the bride is how she will fare in the virginity test'.Virginity is considered a virtue. It is a sign of purity. In some societies, the couple is expected to show the bed cover stained with blood after first night as proof of virginity!Thus, the bedroom, instead of being the foundation for developing tenderness, care, warmth, affection, life long love, pleasure bond, trust, intimacy and relationship, turns into a laboratory for testing potency and virginity.The west got the honeymoon problem i. E. First night failures. One dose not even find a mention of first night failure in any standard text book of sexual medicine or in diagnostic and statistical manual (dsm-iv)Western viewsDr wadell b pomeroy, co-author of the kinsey's report, describes premarital intercourse as a training ground for marriage. Lessons learnt without feeling of guilt and fear and the knowledge of good techniques, go a long way in developing relationship. Urge to have intercourse is like any other urges, e. G. Playing tennis, swimming or dancing, riding a horse or doing anything which gives pleasure. Premarital intercourse, unlike masturbation, is a means of interaction with another human being and consequently is a means of learning how to live with people. Sometime, it is learnt too late after marriage that they are not suited to each other sexually.PrevalenceThe first night' performance as still an important event in one's life. Failure can lead to disaster!It is difficult to statistically because of want of actual reporting and documentation. One can say 20% to 30% of couples who seek sex therapy have failure on their first night or at the time of first sexual contact.AetiologyThe sexual behavior in a human being is the outcome of learning and conditioning sex being considered a taboo, there is hardly any opportunity for learning. Therefore, ignorance, myths, and misconceptions about sex prevail. The most common etiology factor for first night failure in marriage is ignorance about male and female anatomy and facts of sex act. Some couples have unrealistic expectations of sex act.Other cause of first night failure is tight foreskin in male, tough hymen in female and dyspareunia, etcFirst-night blues1 psychologicalInadequate sexual informationRestrictive upbringingA. Sex is dirtyB. Women who enjoy sex are disreputableGuiltSexual mythsFear of pain, failure, not satisfying partnerFear of std/HIV/aids2 organicDysfunction in the partner e. G. VaginismusTight foreskinIf failure occurs on the first attempt, the first thing comes in mind am I impotent?' the more he tries. The more he fails. He feels something is terribly wrong with him. He feels that due to his past habit of masturbation, he has lost his vitality, vigour, and potency. He stops further sexual advances. It starts a vicious cycle of performance anxiety and spectatoring' and failure.Consequences They may avoid sexual activity. They may continue to have only foreplay. They may have good relationship in other aspects of life. Some may suffer from anxiety/depression. Impotency They may make allegations at each other leading to marital conflicts, separation or divorce

Medico Legal Aspect of Sex TherapyTip Image Medico legal aspects of sex therapyIntroductionSex and human sexuality are sensitive subject. To deal effectively with any problem of human sexuality, one has to constantly evaluate its merits and demerits from social, scientific, moral, ethical and most importantly from the legal angle. Following are some of the guidelines for therapist to keep in mind while dealing with clients with sexual problems.ConsentTaking informed and expressed consent is of utmost importance while managing any patient. Examining and / or treating a patient without consent would amount to assault and battery which is punishable under criminal law irrespective of absence of negligence or successful outcome of treatment. The consent should be free willed, informed, intelligent, specific and express. Person giving consent should be competent to do so, failing which, consent should be obtained from the lawful guardian of the patient (in cases of minor and/or mentally retarded).Examinition of a female clientBesides obtaining a valid consent, in case of female patient, the therapist should always have a female assistant present when examining a female patient this is important for the therapist in order to protect himself from a possible charge of indecent behaviour molestation or even sexual offence like rape ect. Being llevelled against him. Mere presence of husband or any male companion of the female patient is not enough. A sex therapist, in particular, is most vulnerable and therefore should be most careful.Use of surrogate partnersUse of surrogate partners for sex therapy is questionable both ethically as well as legally. Sexual involvement of the therapist is universally accepted as unethical. There have been a number of cases where the therapists themselves, having acted as surrogates, have been punished for sexual molestion of their patients. It may also invite a criminal charge of adultery in some countries, including india. There are cases on record where the therapists have been charged with and convicted of rape.Unlike some other countries, the socio cultural set up in india is different. The laws governing sexual behaviour are neither liberal nor evolved as much as in some of the western countries. Besides, surrogacy is likened to prostitution by many. Even if one were to consider surrogate partner as a therapist, then the ethical code prevents a sexual relationship with a client. Moreover, there is every possibility of a disease being transmitted. Particularly the hiv infection, in view of sex with multiple partners by a surrogate person.Therapist should have uppermost in mind the special values of intimacy and love that our culture teaches us to nurture.Professional competencyIt is the ethical responsibility of every sex therapist to maintain high standards of professional competence and integrity. Competence without integrity or integrity without competence is an unsatisfactory compromise of professionalism. It is most important to protect the public and the other professionals from persons who represent themselves as sex therapists who are in fact lacking in competence and intergrity.Competence in another primary discipline such as psychology, psychiatry or counselling is not equivalent to competence in sex therapy.A sex therapist should possess adequate knowledge of the following: 1. Sexual and reproductive anatomy and physiology.2. Developmental sexuality from a psychobiological point of view.3. Marital, family and interpersonal relationship and socio-cultural factors in sexual values4. Physiological and medical factors that may influence sexual functions such as pregnancy, contraception and fertility, illness, disability, medications.5. Multimodel techniques and theory of sex therapy and psychotherapy.6. Pharmacology of the medications used to treat sexual dysfunctions particularly with respect to their adverse effects and interactions with the drugs being consumed for other ailments.7. Ethical issues in sex therapy and principles of evaluation and referral.8. Laws related to sexual behaviour. Points to bear in mind all forms of sex therapy which violate the local laws should be handled with care recommending oral sex as a part of therapy is violative of section 377 of the indian penal code which deal with unnatural sexual offences.the hippocratic oath forbids the physician to take advantage of the therapeutic context in order to engage in either homosexual or heterosexual relationship.it is a universal rule that whenever dealing with reproductive functions is involved, express consent of both the spouses should be obtained.proof of competence is the ability to provide objective and responsible services to the clients.there does exist a potential liability under the laws of the land prohibiting consensual conduct such as prostitution, fornication, lewd and lascivious behaviour and adultery which might arise from therapeutic or non- therapeutic sex research activities.sex between therapist and client is always unethical. No matter how therapeutic the rationale might appear, there is no justification for a therapist having sex with a client. The purpose of sex therapy is to improve function, not to change values or beliefs of the client.

Depression: How It Affects Your Sex LifeTip ImageDepression is a very common disease and affects every aspect of your life including your physical relation to your partner. Depression and some antidepressants curb sexual drive. This has a negative effect on the depression as sex releases 'happy hormones'. Thus, depression and your sex life share a cyclic relationship. The effect of depression on your sex life is a result of both brain functioning and physical changes in the body. Women are more likely to suffer from a reduced libido as an effect of depression. When it comes to depression and your sex life, there is no universal form of treatment. However, it is important not to stop treatment for depression in fear of a lowered libido. The sexual side effects can be addressed later.Here are a few things you can do to improve your Sex life:Ask your doctor to adjust medicationIn cases where the antidepressant curbs libido, lowering or adjusting the drug dosage can be a solution to treat the depression without curbing sexual desire. Do not attempt to adjust your medication on your own. Your doctor may also change the drug to another that does not affect your sex drive. You could also try adjusting the schedule of drug intake such that you medicate yourself after sex. Alternatively, you could ask your doctor to prescribe medication such as Viagra to boost your libido. If your curbed libido is an effect of the depression itself, antidepressants may help you enjoy sex more. You should know that anti depressants can take a few months to have an effect.Break the patternDepression often makes a person withdraw from others and cease to enjoy any experience. This becomes a thought pattern that cannot be cured with medication. Talking to a counselor can help unlearn these thought patterns and help people form new social bonds.

5 Ways to Enlarge Your PenisTip ImageMen are always concerned about their size and in extreme cases, this concern is also a cause of anxiety disorders. Even though, a large penis does not provide men any edge in terms of sexual pleasure, still it is big cause of concern for most of them. Other factors like erectile function and length of sexual intercourse play a more important role in sexual pleasure.Here are the 5 ways to enlarge your penis:Have lots of fruits and vegetables: For a healthy and long penis, you need to have fruits and vegetables high in antioxidants. These elements are very helpful in fighting free radicals (elements that damage your body) that form in the blood vessels. Additionally, antioxidants also help in strengthening the blood vessels.Say yes to exercise: Exercising regularly can significantly affect your penis size and cause you to have a long and healthy penis. By exercising from time to time, you end up improving blood flow to the organ as well as clearing up the blood vessels.Cut down on your stress levels: Stress and anxiety can also reduce the size of your penis. This happens as negative feelings cause blood to flow from the penis. As a result, it becomes very difficult to increase the size of the organ. Another reason that can contribute to the small size of your penis may be sexual performance anxiety.Quit or reduce smoking: Smoking can considerably affect the size of your penis due to the blockage that small tobacco smoke particles create in the arteries that supply blood to the penis. Moreover, since smoking is associated with heart diseases, the flow of blood to several organs in the body gets affected including the penis.Take a warm shower: A warm shower can aid in increasing blood flow to not only your body but also the penis. The warmth of the water aids in augmenting blood flows into the organ, enabling the growth of the penis. 4567 people found this helpful

Kegel Exercises For Women - Super Benefits of it!Tip ImageKegel exercises are simple contraction-and-relaxation exercises that make the pelvic muscles stronger. The pelvis area holds a person's genitalia, which contains a series of muscles and tissues that work in coordination and combination to perform sexual and bowel functions. A set of weak pelvic muscles would lead to issues such as the inability to control bladder and bowel functions.Finding the right muscles can be troubling. An easy way to locate these muscles would be to place a clean finger inside the vagina and tighten the vaginal muscles around it. Another way would be to stop urinating mid-flow. This is because the pelvic muscles, which pertain to sex, help to control this action too. Once a woman finds the right muscles, all she has to do is to contract and relax them periodically.Kegel exercises are highly beneficial for sexual functions in a number of ways. Some of the benefits include:Kegel exercises help to control stress incontinence, which is a condition that causes spontaneous discharge of urine when abdominal pressure increases suddenly. This means a person would leak urine when he/she laughs, coughs, jogs, sneeze or lifts anything weighty.Kegel exercises also help to prevent urge incontinence, which has been described as a sudden and strong urge to urinate. In a healthy bladder, the muscles remain relaxed as the bladder progressively fills up. As the bladder finally fills up, a person gets the urge to urinate. In case one has urge incontinence, the bladder might feel full even if it is not. Kegel exercises help to strengthen these muscles and recover control.Kegel exercises can be particularly helpful after childbirth. This is so because pelvic muscles stretch and weaken during childbirth, which can cause problems such as Urinary incontinence and can also cause the muscles to sag. In these cases, Kegel exercises are helpful. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a sexologist.
