SEXOLOGICAL PERSPECTIVES IN AYURVEDA
Vd. Ashish S. Agrawal and Vd. Sheetal O. Sureka
Vajikarana directly enhances semen and reproductive potency. Of the two facets of vajikarana procreation and enjoyment one or the other has been getting focus from time to time according to sociological situation. Manu stresses the former further while Vatsyayana adds more importance to the latter. That's why he's including this subject in his letter. But the job of the physician was to look at both and to maintain a balance between on the one hand, impotence is an illness, and on the other hand, excess sex causes dhatus failure and causes other effects, such as consumption, etc as Moon did by his excessive indulgence with Rohini. Similarly, excess progeny is problematic, but at the same time, infertility is not a problem. The present analysis explains in depth the sexological viewpoint of Ayurveda, with a focus on study areas to support the concept of Vajikarana.
