  • Teen Pornography: An Emerging Mental Health Challenge

    • Authors: Surobhi Chatterjee, Sujita Kumar Kar
      Pages: 30 - 34
      Abstract: Journal of Psychosexual Health, Volume 5, Issue 1, Page 30-34, January 2023.
      Exposure to pornography is not an uncommon and unusual phenomenon in the digital era, with teens being no exception. Exposure to pornography among teens may happen accidentally, out of curiosity, or intentionally to derive sexual excitement. Many individuals exposed to pornography may later develop pornography addiction. Most parents who are aware that their children view pornography are often worried about such behavior and sometimes seek help from mental health professionals. So, it can be certainly said that exposure to pornography among teens may cause significant distress in them and their parents. As pornography is a major source of sex education for a large number of teens, lots of myth and misguided information are harbored from watching pornography. This article focuses on the mental health aspects of pornography exposure among teens and the possible remedial measures.

  • Pornography and Its Impact on Adolescent/Teenage Sexuality

    • Authors: Himani Adarsh, Swapnajeet Sahoo
      Pages: 35 - 39
      Abstract: Journal of Psychosexual Health, Volume 5, Issue 1, Page 35-39, January 2023.
      Adolescents/Teenagers are exposed to pornography due to a variety of factors and it is accepted as a process of sexual exploration/normal development of sexuality. However, early exposure to pornography and unregulated/excess exposure to pornography during the formative years of adolescence has been seen to have various long-term deleterious effects on sexual maturation, sexual behavior, Internet addiction, and overall personality development. To safeguard the growing minds of the teens from the harmful effects of pornography, few rules/regulations have been passed in India as well as banning of porn sites. However, there are very limited research on the impact of pornography on various aspects of adolescents’ growth and development. This mini-review covers the issues pertinent to the effect of pornography with regard to adolescent sexuality.

  • The Differential Impact of COVID-19 Pandemic on Sexual Behavior of
           Eligible Couples in Urban and Rural India

      Pages: 48 - 53
      Abstract: Journal of Psychosexual Health, Volume 5, Issue 1, Page 48-53, January 2023.
      Background:Intimacy during sexual contact with a person with symptomatic or asymptomatic COVID-19 disease carries the risk of its transmission. COVID-19 has been therefore found to adversely impact the sexual behavior in people in various countries. A discussion on sexual health is often tabooed in India, leading to less research evidence from India.Aim:We tried to study and compare the impact of COVID-19 pandemic on the sexual behavior of urban- and rural-based eligible couples.Methods:Eligible couples were randomly selected from the urban and rural field practice area of a Medical College of West Bengal (India). They were interviewed using a data collection schedule for their sexual practices adopted during the pandemic. Urban vs rural sexual behavior was compared using chi-square test.Results:Majority didn’t report any change in sexual desire compared to prepandemic days. However, scope of sexual contact had significantly reduced among urbanites (P = .036); fear of contracting COVID-19 during sexual intimacy was more among them as well (P = .047). The rural respondents reported significantly higher desire for parenthood (P = .018), though their contraceptive behavior was not significantly different from the urban counterparts. Many used means other than sexual intercourse for sexual gratification, which had remained similar to the prepandemic times.Conclusion:The sexual behavior of urban and rural participants was found to be significantly different on many fronts, probably due to better COVID-19 awareness among urban residents as well as other prevalent social stigma and restrictions that were less commonly encountered in rural participants.

  • Psychosexual Dysfunctions in Male Patients With Diagnosis of Depression
           and/or Anxiety Disorders Attending Psychiatry Outpatient Clinic in
           Chhatrapati Shivaji Subharti Hospital, Meerut

      Pages: 54 - 59
      Abstract: Journal of Psychosexual Health, Volume 5, Issue 1, Page 54-59, January 2023.
      Background:Sexual dysfunction (SD) among male psychiatric patients is common and may be the result of various bio- psycho-social factors. This study aimed to assess the proportion of men with depression and/or anxiety disorders having SD and evaluate its association with sociodemographic and clinical variables.Methods:This cross-sectional study conducted from November 2018 to June 2020 included 100 men attending the psychiatry outpatient department of a tertiary care hospital. Sociodemographic and clinical variables, including diagnosis based on International Classification of Diseases 10th Revision criteria, were assessed. Sexual functioning was measured by the Change in Sexual Functioning Questionnaire-Male Version (CSFQ-M).Results:In the study, sexual pleasure dysfunction, sexual desire dysfunction, sexual desire/interest dysfunction, sexual arousal/erection dysfunction, and sexual orgasmic dysfunction were 71%, 71%, 66%, 68%, and 73%, respectively. Pearson correlation between Hamilton Depression Rating Scale score and sexual desire/interest component of CSFQ-M was r = 0.209 (P = .008). Correlation between Hamilton Anxiety Rating Scale score and sexual desire/frequency component was r = 0.095 (P = .012), sexual desire/interest component yielded r = 0.114 (P = .029) and sexual arousal/erection component yielded r = 0.134 (P = .052).Conclusions:Certain areas of sexual functioning are impacted by depression and/or anxiety disorders symptoms. The hypothesis that those with depression and/or anxiety would have lesser overall sexual functioning is supported in some areas by the results. Clinicians should be vigilant of this association and should plan treatment to enhance compliance and outcome.

      Abstract: Journal of Psychosexual Health, Ahead of Print.
      Intimate partner violence (IPV) has been a significant public health problem in same-sex relationships. However, health policies across the globe do not address IPV causing a massive gap in health and economic burden. In the last decade, crucial missing links have been established, and researchers tried to connect the dots of this severe health disparity. This intersectionality has found the impact of race, gender, class, physical ability, and legal framework of IPV in lesbian, gay, and bisexual (LGB) relationships. However, preventive strategies, training programs, and dialogues in the clinical field about IPV are from heteronormative lenses. This particular bias can perpetuate the issue and will remain one of the leading causes of health burden in the LGB population. This article reviews the lacunae in health policies regarding same-sex IPV, highlights its impact on minority mental health, and calls for attention to train health-care professionals regarding the same.

  • An Overview of Criminal Laws in India in Relation to Sex and Sexuality

    • Authors: Choudhary Laxmi Narayan, Mridula Narayan, Kritika Agarwal, Lavanya Seth, Mridul Deepanshu
      First page: 23
      Abstract: Journal of Psychosexual Health, Ahead of Print.
      Sex and sexuality are frequently the cause of erratic, aggressive and violent behavior. Women are often at the receiving end of such behaviors and are subjected to sexual assaults. The Mathura rape case, the Nirbhaya case and the Kathua rape case are some of the heinous crime cases against women that occurred and rocked the entire country. In response to these cases, amendments were introduced in the laws dealing with the offences against women in our country by way of Criminal Law (Amendment) Acts in 1983, 2013 and 2018. Verma Committee formed after the Nirbhaya case was of the view that rape and sexual assault are not merely crimes of passion but an expression of power. The 2013 Amendment brought about substantial changes in the laws for crimes against women, and several new crimes like stalking, harassing the women at the work places, voyeurism, severe punishments for acid throwing and so on were introduced. The Information Technology Act, 2000, describes cyber-crimes in relation to sex and sexuality and has provisions for severe punishment. The POCSO Act was enacted in 2012 to deal with sexual offences committed against children. Recently, important developments have occurred, like decriminalizing the same-sex relationships, striking down adultery as an offence, introducing legislation for transgenders, ensuring human rights for sex workers and so on. A brief account of criminal laws in relation to sex and sexuality is given in this article.

      Abstract: Journal of Psychosexual Health, Ahead of Print.
      Studies have shown physician homophobia as a barrier to health care, with LGBTQIA+ patients being more likely to delay or avoid getting care due to fear of harassment or discrimination.Objectives:Our aims and objective in this study were to determine the attitudes and opinions of the various medical and surgical teaching faculties and compare them for gender differences, if any, toward the LGBT community.Methodology:It was a cross-sectional study done among 129 teaching faculty between November and December 2019 at Sri Devaraj Urs Academy of Higher Education and Research, a rural tertiary medical college in southern India with regular and ongoing postgraduate training in all medical and surgical specialties, with assessment done using a structured and validated instrument, Riddle homophobia scale, meant for the assessment of attitudes and beliefs toward the LGBT community.Results:Most of the teachers in both the medical and surgical groups reported favorable positive attitudes/beliefs with statements like homophobia and heterosexism are wrong, and there is no need for the LGBT people to undergo reparative surgery; they deserve the same rights and privileges as everyone; however, there were negative attitudes and opinions reported with the statements like the LGBT people did not choose their sexual orientation and teachers themselves need to undergo introspection to be able to be supportive toward them, which is a significant source of concern. There were no differences in attitudes and opinions based on the age groups of the teachers of both the groups. Male teachers, when compared to female teachers (male:females—84:45), reported more favorable beliefs (t2/p value= 6.316/.0043) toward the LGBT community at p value ≤ .05.Conclusions:The teaching of sexuality, especially on the LGBT community, to medical professionals, especially teaching faculty, needs to be perceptive to the issues faced by people with different sexual orientations and identities.
