Sexual Disorder (Sexual dysfunction)
Sexual dysfunction or sexual malfunction is difficulty experienced by an individual or a couple during any stage of a normal sexual activity, including physical pleasure, desire, preference, arousal or orgasm.
Sexual dysfunction requires a person to feel extreme distress and interpersonal strain for a minimum of 6 months (excluding substance or medication-induced sexual dysfunction).Sexual dysfunctions can have a profound impact on an individual's perceived quality of sexual life.
A thorough sexual history and assessment of general health and other sexual problems (if any) are very important. Assessing (performance) anxiety, guilt, stress and worry are integral to the optimal management of sexual dysfunction.

Ayurveda is divided in eight branches in which Vajikarana is one o branches which deals with all types of physical, and psychological sexual problems like impotence, libido, poor erection and early ejaculation in males and sterility, frigidity in females.
Ayurveda strongly believed that a weak shukra dhatu was the culprit behind all male and female sexual problems.
Vajikaran tantra (technique) claims that it has tips for a normal, healthy and mature shukra dhatu, which is ultimately essential for satisfying and productive sex.
Vajikaran doesn't contradict the abstaining from sex i.e. the brahmacharya but believes that sex is a means to procreation thus vajikaran serves the purpose of 'Purushartha Chatushtaya' (Dharma, Artha, Kama and Moksha) by helping to procreate sustainable species.
