CREATING SOCIAL AWARENESS ABOUT CONDOMS
We are living in a society where we celebrate each day as a celebration. There is a number of days which we celebrate from birthdays, anniversary, Bachler party, beach party etc. Each day becomes more special when you think of the couple and the beautiful relationship which they share.
Love and romance are so beautiful to hear, to feel and to express. It is the best way to make someone feel your love, understand your emotions and concern which one shows for that someone special.
Gone are the days when people used to feel ashamed about certain things or talk about sex in front of their friends, parents or society. Now it comes naturally to everyone’s mind. Even on television or films, it’s been shown in a broader way. It is no more showing as a social taboo.
INFLUENCE OF MOVIES
There are many films which are made and featured on sexual awareness. The films like Kaamasutra, Satyam Shivam Sundram, Pink, Vikki Donor where people openly discuss sexual awareness like sex, about surrogacy, sperm donation or any other medical issues associated with it.
SOCIETY AND ITS OPINION
We are living in such a world where we can talk about infatuation, crush, love affair or marriage but feel ashamed about sexual health problems like Sexual dysfunction which could be physical or psychological, Erectile dysfunction, Premature ejaculation that prevents you or your partner from getting sexual satisfaction.
Now the question comes to Can Sexual Problems Be Cured?
The answer is yes!!
Of these 8 infections, 4 are currently curable: syphilis, gonorrhea, chlamydia, and trichomoniasis.
The other 4 are viral infections and are incurable: hepatitis B, herpes simplex virus (HSV or herpes), HIV, and human papillomavirus (HPV)
The success of treatment for sexual dysfunction depends on the underlying root cause of the problem. It’s time to speak out about such vital issues openly rather than keeping them in disguise and thereafter dragging to the cause of family issues or couple arguments.
These problems are curable and the line of treatment strategy can vary from one person to the other.

Sexually transmitted infections (STIs) are infections or diseases that are passed from one partner to another during unprotected sex with an infected partner. This includes vaginal, anal or oral sex. Some STIs can be passed on just by skin to skin contact.
There are ways that you can reduce your risk of catching or passing on an STI. Safer sex means not allowing your partner’s body fluids (blood, semen, vaginal fluids) into your body and vice versa. It can also mean covering up parts of the body that might be infectious during performing sex.
COUNSELING AND AWARENESS
To discuss sexual problems and difficulties that couples face makes them feel very difficult to perform and ashamed. Some people feel so fearful, self-conscious to discuss their sexual problem that they do not feel comfortable worth discussing even with their partner.
