16% of Indians suffer from sexual dysfunction: Study

Roughly 16 per cent of the Indian population suffers from various forms of sexual dysfunctions, according to a recent survey.

The survey, conducted by the Indian Institute of Sexual Medicine (IISM), Chennai states that men suffer from dysfunctions like premature ejaculation, ejaculatory dysfunction and impotence.

Change in life style is the main reason for this, IISM Director Dr T Kamaraj said. Working on computers and business outsourcing firms had changed the life style, which affected the daily activities of the people, he said adding that this had led to more stress, affecting sexual life.

"The attitude towards sex has undergone a change, which has resulted in value degradation and even sexual frustration," he said.

Spreading fast food culture had led to obesity, which in turn affects sexual life of a person, he said, adding blood pressure, diabetes and obesity had also affected the youth.

Youth had a lot of myth and misconceptions on sex compounded with age old superstitions, which also played a major role on the sexual life of individuals, Kamaraj said.

The two day third international conference on sexology, which begins here on Saturday would address these issues at length, he added.
