Here is the conversation of the interview.
Q: According to you Dr Sankalp how is sex seen, what is the outlook towards sex and intimacy?
A: Well, it is very conservative. When I say conservative, I mean very. Each one is aware that is the part of life and the society we live in yet no one dares to talk openly about it from where the problem starts. The problem of not opening up and not sharing. The outlook towards sex is under-researched, under-reported and these things are then blended with myths and the taboo. Hence people hesitate to talk about it openly, which is dangerous.
Q: Dr Jain you mentioned that this is dangerous. Why do you think so?
A: Yes, this is dangerous. Dangerous because when people suffer sexual problems, they are hesitant to talk about it and their hesitancy to talk can lead to life-long risks and deadly circumstances. Everyone and needs to understand that sexual problem is just like another health issue that is encountered by an individual. Any gender or any age group, especially grown-up adults can face it and when they do. They should talk openly about it so that it is treated and cured.
Q: What are the problems or issues that can be addressed as sexual problems?
A: Problems such as erectile dysfunction, premature ejaculation, infertility, orgasm or arousal disorders and the list goes on. Such issues can be described as sexual problems but overall, they are health issues that can be cured with proper treatment. Intimation and Marriage go hand in hand, one should not be embarrassed or ashamed to talk about it.
Q: How can such issues be solved or cured?
A: Such health issues are present since ancient times and their cures or treatments were started at the same time. I’m raised under the influence of Ayurveda and Ayurveda when is mixed with modern technology the results are very positive. The sexual problems are curable. One has to first talk about it and then be patient.
Q: What message do you wish to convey to people out there who are suffering from such issues?
A: All I want to convey is this is curable, this is treatable. We have done it. You just have to talk about it. I sit at A. K. Jain Clinic located in Lucknow you can always visit me and talk.
