Sex has always remained a controversial topic for us Pakistanis. No matter what the context, as soon as anything even slightly related to it is brought up, our ears perk up, eyes open wide and our senses go down. In a society where there has been a debate about whether the PTA should ban the word ‘intercourse’, as reported by a tribune. The ever-present talk about human reproduction and all other peripheries associated with it becomes even more difficult to have.

However, Pakistan is in desperate need of it as the abortion rates soar in recent years because of improper contraceptive measures and general unawareness about this taboo subject. We, as a society, are at crossroads where we have to choose between matters as important as life or death over as natural a human process as sexual intercourse – or anything even remotely related to it.

The field of medical sciences has many specializations aimed at curing ailments and improving the quality of life of mankind. Sexology is one of these specializations focused on studying human sexuality, related behaviors, sexual disorders, interests, and functions. Sexologists and urologists deal with the issues affecting the sexual health of people.
