The very term sexuality or sexual health has become a topic of shame, insult, abuse and violence in the current scenario. People today states or rather declare that they are well aware of their sexuality and sexual health. However, is it so or have they been confusing it their outer appearance? The hyper-individualistic personality of the people outlines that the world is modernizing as well as transforming. Don’t you think that each time we declare that we are moving forward, which is reality is our steps further back in terms of their thinking, views and opinion in the name of age-old practices and tradition. The prevalence of this so-called modernization has rather created a sense of metrification regarding our own sexuality and sexual health among the civilization.

On the auspicious of occasion of World’s AIDS Day, Team of Benevolentia Foundation under the supervision and guidance of Dr. Sinchan Das conducted a round table conference for better insights on sexuality and sexual health with students. Starting off, Dr. Das presented the students with three prime areas to be covered in the conferences.

  • Sexual health is the matter of hindrance
  • Sexual health is not a part of holistic health
  • Sexual orientation is no matter

Sexuality and sexual health has always been presented to us as private or rather say secrete that must not be revealed to anyone. This mentality often leads to many complications. For instance, if a person is suffering from any kind of sexual health issues than the chances are very high that they will either hide or feel shy to share it with anyone. This in long run is likely to be converted into a dangerous form while risking the life of a person. “Then is hindrance towards sexual health and sexuality the prime cause to sexual diseases?”

We all are aware that one of the hibernated disease syphilis has once again come into spotlight where trio of three most deadly diseases, i.e. syphilis, gonorrhoea and AIDS have been majorly affecting the civilisation once again. Syphilis and gonorrhoea are not very new to this world, some 250 years these particular disease has killed more 45% of the total populations. In terms of Christian Friedrich Samuel Hahnemann “sexual disease are the prior condition of the malfunctioning health, suppression of which can give birth to the psora and psychosis”. He further highlighted the fact that “Each and every systematic manifestation are the result of suppression of syphilis and gonorrhoea by the means of Mercurius solutions and sulphur creams or ointments, the super exposition and the manifestation of over uses of this heroic substances may lead to the creation of psora and psychosis”.

In context to this, it can be noted that one of the prime cause for sexual disease is due to lack of negligence, ignorance and acceptance of the people that their so-called private parts are not the matter of hindrance or something to be felt shy about. This brings us down to one question to which we all deliberately try to ignore “Are we aware of our sexual health?” If you fails to find words or go silent while considering the question to be offensive than its time for each one of us to realise that as  how much we all have been shying away with tour own sexuality and sexual health.

We the so-called social animals are always busy in rectifying or better say beautifying our outer self that we often forget about our own sexuality and sexual health until there a condition to think for its care. Moreover, this is the very cause due to which we all are unaware about our sexual health. Don’t you think that it is necessary for each individual to know about their sexuality and sexual health if they want to do any sexual intimacy?

In reality, the fact is that by birth, we all are anatomically bisexuals but the stereotypical perspective of the society has compelled the civilization or rather say made it compulsory for them to fit into the tiny sexuality boxes where if you fail to fit in then you are either abnormal or declared traitor of the society.

Despite of so much transformations and changes in the world, the society we all live in are still under the dump of age old believes and concepts. Adding to this, he stated that the scenario as of today have even worst. People will have to accept the fact that out sexuality and sexual health are parts of holistic health. The consistent negligence, ignorance, resistance and rigidity towards self-sexuality and sexual health are broiling many diseases where majority are old but has turn out to be even more deadliest. If we still deny this fact the day is not far when we all will perish like rotten rats.
