Sex & Ayurveda
Who doesn’t like to talk or are curious about the word, “SEX”? Of course the answer is most of people like to talk or are curious about “SEX”. Some people say it directly and some feel shy to talk about it freely in public.
As per my clinical experience, there are many misconception, doubts and questions about SEX in society, not only in young generation but also in married couple who are practicing SEX in daily routine. Hence, to clear all doubts and misconception about Sex, I am going to introduce what AYURVERDA mentions about SEX.
In ancient Ayurveda text, SEX related detailed information is mentioned under topic RATRICHARYA (routine of night).

Benefit of regular SEX

आयुष्मन्तो मन्दजरा वपुवर्णबलान्विताः |
स्थिरोपचित्तमासास्च भवन्ति स्त्रीषु सयताः ||

Ayurveda say's, a person will get benefit as follow:
  • Life span will increase.
  • Skin’s luster and complexion will remain same as young in
    old age.
  • Physical fitness especially muscular strength.
  • Symptoms of old age wont effect until later stage of age.

Rules of Sex mentioned in Ayurveda.

Ayurveda is the ONLY medical science in world, which mentions detailed rules of sex.

The rules are as follows:
According to seasons:


Frequency of intercourse

Vasant Rutu (march- April) 3 days gap between 2 intercourse
Grishma Rutu ( May- June) 15 days (1 Paksh) gap between 2 intercourse.
Varsha Rutu (July – August) 15 days (1 Paksh) gap between 2 intercourse.
Sarad Rutu ( Sep – October ) 3 days gap between 2 intercourse
Hemant Rutu ( nov – Decembar) mentioned this because, it is the best season for Sexual relationship.
Can be done daily. ( have to drink daily milk. )
Shishir Rutu ( Jan – February) Same as above.

Types of Females

Ayurveda mentioned 4 types of females as follow:

Bala Age up to 16 years old
Taruni Age 17 to 35 years old
Atirudha Age 36 to 50 years old
Vrudha Above 50 years old

Effects on Body of male:

Ayurveda mentioned various effect of sexual intercourse with above-mentioned females.
With Bala - Physical, mental and sexual strength of a male will increase.
With Taruni – Physical, mental and sexual strength of a male will decrease day by day.
With Atirudha & Vrudha – male will get old age sign and symptoms very early.

Ayurveda mentions some specific days as follow on which sex will be contraindicated

नोपेयात्पुरुषो नारी संध्यय्योन च पर्वसु |
गोसर्गे चार्धरात्रे च तथा सन्ध्यादिनेपि च ||

1) Morning & afternoon time.
2) Parva Din (according to Indian calendar)
★ Purnima, Amavasya, Sankranti, Akadashi

Why morning and afternoon time is contraindicated for Sex?

व्याधितस्य रुजा प्लीहा मूर्च्छा मृत्युश्च जायते |
प्रत्युषस्यधरात्रे च वातपित्त प्रकुप्यतः ||

The answer given by Ayurveda is, if a couple has constant sex during day time (morning or afternoon) will not only decrease their life span, but also will decrease the SPERM COUNT, increase pain while intercourse and enlargement of spleen organ.
Only 4 months in calendar are exceptional for this,that is March, April, July and August. Only in these months Daytime sex can be done & will not affect health.

    Psychology does matters while having sex, in terms
    of duration of sex, for example mental stress or sad
    mood of person leads to premature ejaculation of
    sperms, which will reduce duration of sex.

उपदन्श तथा वायोः कोपः शुक्रसुखक्षयः||

Ayurveda specifically mention if male or female will do ANIMAL SEX, ORAL SEX, ANAL SEX (sex via anus) and MASTURBATION that female or male has higher chance to have one of worst disorder mentioned in Ayurveda that is UPADAUSHA (Gonorrhea) symptoms are wound on penis or in vagina of female with lots of pain and lots of boils with pus formation, burning on genital organs, sometimes bleeding also.

In short Ayurveda said should not go for this all of sex mentioned above.

If A Male Tries To Stop Ejaculation Of Sperms While Sex,

Then the sperms get dried and consistency of liquid sperms are converted into tiny stones of sperms (SUKRA ASHMARI) which can cause blockage of urinary path of the penis.

2nd reason of formation of sperm stone in penis is WRONG POSITION WHILE HAVING SEX.

Ayurveda says to avoid this position for further complication in genital system of male partner.

Ayurveda is the one and only that mentions about the sperm stone (SUKRA ASHMARI)

What after Intercourse?

Ayurveda mentions few things we have to do after intercourse by which we can regain our energy, which we lose while having intercourse.

2) Consume food, which contain sugar.
3) A glass of cold water.

All of the above mentioned things would boost our energy that is lost while having intercourse.
