The joy is in the journey



JJ Valaya Tabriz

New Delhi, Sep 9 (IANSlife) After a three-year hiatus, JJ Valaya returns to the Indian fashion scene with his Fall-Winter collection ‘Tabriz, which is inspired by Persian msyticism and reflects the designer’s own journeys, both geographical and personal, and evolution. Valaya is also unveiling a photo exhibition, ‘The Royal Nomad 2019’.

“This show is very special too me because it’s after a significant gap of three years. I took a sabbatical for various reasons, one of them being working on an international project as a creative director. But this self-imposed exile, if I could call it that, has been a great period of discovery, it gave me a perspective and direction,” said the designer.

Valaya is known for his couture creations and has been chosen by many celebrities and renowned personalities to design their trousseaus. With ‘Tabriz’, he insists, he is going to make a lot of brides and grooms happy. “It’s a completely new definition of couture, in terms of the whole experience and the quality of craftsmanship. We are a brand primarily catering to occasion wear and weddings. With ‘Tabriz’, the journey of choosing an outfit for your big day will be unparalleled; it’ll be by appointment only and the experience will go beyond exclusive. There will be no walk-in customers, we want to revive the entire atelier experience,” he said.

With most brands now launching collections online without shows and focusing on social media marketing and paid partnerships, is this the best way forward? “Most brides and grooms are young and know what they want. It is naïve to say that social media does not impact us. It is a new language and a very important part of the fashion scene. As for paid partnerships, that is not something we are looking at at the moment. We have created beautiful clothes and an even better experience, we can only hope that people find merit in that,” said Valaya.

Though he does not dismiss the importance of the social media, Valaya finds the presence of Bollywood overwhelming on the Indian fashion scene. He insists that the induction of Bollywood on the runway has really taken away from fashion. Having worked internationally as well he says, “There the focus is on the clothes, while here it’s the celebrity who hog the limelight,” he rued.

Is watching porn linked to erectile dysfunction in men?



porn videos addiction

If you are not enjoying a good bedroom life, blame pornography. According to a sexual health expert in UK, single or divorced men are more likely to suffer from erectile dysfunction (impotence) because they have become too used to porn or having ‘unsatisfactory’ sex lives.

A report by London-based clinic Numan found that 80 per cent of men living in the UK have experienced erectile dysfunction.

Speaking on the report to FEMAIL, women’s column in the Daily Mail, Chartered Psychologist Felix Economakisto blamed pornography and drinking too much for causing problems in the bedroom of single, divorced men.

“The first reason is that they often tend to have either negligent, absent or unsatisfactory sex lives. That means they feel rather ‘de-skilled’ and not confident when it comes to the bedroom,” Economakisto, was quoted as saying.

Millions of men have been affected by erectile dysfunction.

The study, which was conducted by the Market Research Society, asked 1,000 divorced men in the UK if they had experienced a sexual performance problem, reported Daily Mail.

According to the research, four-fifths of those men questioned admitted they had struggled with erectile dysfunction.

“If men become ‘wound up’ about goals and work, it could also impact their performance during sex,” Economakisto said.

“Sometimes men can also be so wound up about performance goals and reviews at work that they tend to start perceiving performance in the bedroom as yet another ‘customer’ to keep happy, complete with fear of unsatisfactory reviews,” he said.

“Watching pornography could cause erectile dysfunction,” he added.

Why perimenopause affects sexual life in some women




Sex And Menopause

Sexual dysfunction increases by nearly 30 per cent during perimenopause and vaginal dryness most often has the greatest effect on desire, arousal and overall satisfaction, reveals a new study.

For some women, sex becomes less satisfying with age, with a pronounced decline during perimenopause. Women start perimenopause at different ages.

There are many factors that can negatively affect sexual function, including mental and emotional status, ageing, chronic medical problems and menopause status.

Decreasing estrogen levels during the menopause transition cause a variety of biological changes in a woman’s body, leading to vaginal atrophy, the thinning, drying and inflammation of the vaginal walls.

“This study examined sexual functioning in women aged 40 to 55 years and identified a link between vaginal dryness and worse sexual function.

“Given the high prevalence of sexual dysfunction in women, identifying an eminently treatable contributing factor such as vaginal dryness may allow women to maintain their sexual function during the menopause transition,” said Dr Stephanie Faubion, medical director with the North American Menopause Society (NAMS) in a paper published in the journal Menopause.

Although previous studies have documented the effect of vaginal atrophy on menopausal women, this new study is one of only a few to assess effect during perimenopause, a transitional time before menopause when the ovaries gradually begin to make less estrogen.

Largely as a result of vaginal dryness, researchers noted that sexual satisfaction scores decreased while sexual dysfunction increased by about 30 per cent during the perimenopause years.
