WHEN VICE WAS VIRTUE
Did you know India is the only civilisation to elevate sex (kama) to a goal of life. The study of sex was a science in ancient India, along with dharma (religion) and artha (money). Kamasutra, the popular Indian treatise on sex, compiled by Vatsyayana, a third century sexologist and philosopher, is a culmination of this belief system that regarded sex and sexual health as an integral part of a healthy living. This is also what the World Health Organisation (WHO) is saying today.
GUILT SHAME JUDGMENT
There is no sex education or sexual health training in the Indian medical curriculum.
So nearly 95 per cent of doctors who call themselves sexologists, including urologists, gynaecologists and andrologists, are not trained to do the job. You will be shocked to know from where medical students get their sexual knowledge from.
