Conversations about sexual health are usually quiet. But it is the need of the hour to talk about it openly so that timely medical advice can be sought, if necessary. As such, recently hired actor Vidyut Jammwal already talked about how erectile dysfunction (ED) becomes a common problem given the sedentary lifestyle, a fact often pointed out by doctors.
âErectile dysfunction (inability to get or maintain an erection firm enough to have sex) in men can be due to a physical or psychological condition. It is becoming more and more common due to our sedentary lifestyle, increased stress, etc. Even men in their twenties can suffer from erectile dysfunction, âhe said.
Dr Gautam Banga, consultant and andrologist at Sunrise Hospital in New Delhi previously told indianexpress.com that in India erectile dysfunction is taboo because people don’t see it as a medical disorder but as a sexual incompetence. “It doesn’t happen because the man is not interested or is unable to have sex, but there are medical reasons like diabetes, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, and ischemic heart disease (IHD ), depression, etc., which lead to erectile dysfunction, âhe said.
However, it is a treatable condition.
Jammwal said that strengthening the pelvic region can help a lot. âKalariSutra is a set of 19 exercises which, if practiced daily, will help you rejuvenate your blood flow and bring sexual energy back to the pelvic area,â he said during a demonstration of a set of exercises inspired by the martial art form.
* Keep the arms out front and 90 degrees to the body.
* Elbows should be kept straight, unless otherwise specified.
In addition to KalariSutra, he also mentioned that Kegel exercises can help.
1 Contract the pelvic muscle (the one you use to stop urinating) and hold the muscle for 3 to 5 seconds.
2 Relax for 1 to 2 seconds.
3 Steps 1 and 2 are a repeat. Do 10 repetitions of steps 1 and 2 in one set.
4 Do 3 to 6 sets per day.
