An Indian man has sued his ex-wife for defaming his manhood.
Vandana Gurjar divorced her husband Hemant Chhalotre because he was impotent and so she could “not have marital bliss with him.”
Understandably embarrassed, Mr Chhalotre decided to sue his ex on the grounds that she had “rendered him unmarriageable and sullied his prestige.” A judge sided with Mr Chhalotre and ordered Miss Gurjar to pay 200,000 rupees (£2,747). The fine levied on Miss Gurjar far exceeds the average wage for millions of people living in India.
That impotence can break up relationships has been well-documented, but this must surely be a landmark case.
Dr Sudhakar Krishnamurti – an internationally recognised authority on sexual medicine and impotence – has called India the “impotence capital of the world, not just in sheer numbers but also in impotence rates.”
Another extreme example of impotence-spurred relationship troubles occurred in China last year, when an impotent husband was so enraged upon being teased by his wife that he murdered her. Like India, impotence rates are high in China. A recent study showed that one quarter of Chinese men are impotent and yet few are comfortable about sharing the problem.
Frustrations can overwhelm impotent men. This is particularly true if these men are ashamed to discuss the problem.
Rather than letting this tension build, seeking out medical advice is always advisable. Acquiring a prescription of impotence treatments like Viagra, Levitra and Cialis is straightforward if you are suffering from erectile dysfunction. These drugs can open up blood vessels leading to the penis, allowing an erection to be obtained easily.
