Please permit me space in your widely circulated news medium to dilate on the topic “sex starvation a disease killing men”. After, I have conducted both Quantitative and Qualitative research I am of the strong view that sex starvation should be declared as a disease by the World Health Organization as it is responsible for most of the early death of men in the society and there is a need to embark on producing drugs to minimize the sexual urge of men.

Due to heighten sexual urge amongst men in Sierra Leone, the study seeks to assess the nature of sex starvation implication and its impact on men. Both primary and secondary sources of data were used; analysis of data collected was done using Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS), to know the driving forces of sex starvation among men.

The survey which targeted 150 participants was able to secure response from 105 respondents, across 6 ghettos and passers-by, age between 18 and 40 years. The survey which initially targeted equal number of both male and female respondents ended up with 70 male and 35 female respondents, which stand at 93.3% for male and 33.3% for female. This clearly shows that the survey was really participatory and it raises awareness as to the dangers of sex starvation which leads to early death of men.

Based on the survey, 82.5% of respondent agreed that sex starvation should be declared as a disease responsible for the early death of men. They went further to state that authorities should be working on the production of drugs that will minimize the sexual urge of men rather than creating the environment for sexual enhancement drugs to thrive.

The survey also clearly states that when sexual appetite becomes excessive it becomes a disease both of the body and mind. When sexual urge becomes excessive, the survey noted, it leads to promiscuity or excessive masturbation which could cause impotence, dyspepsia, vertigo, and dimness of sight, memory loss, and even death.

Pharmaceutical Companies have also come under fierce attack as they have been accused of producing drugs to enhance sexual performance for over a very long time. These products are characterized by wildly exaggerated claims, and sold to the public by different manufacturers, without evidence of safety and warnings of its dangers.

Sexual addiction is a condition in which an individual cannot manage their sexual behaviour. Persistent sexual thoughts affect their ability to work, maintain relationships, and fulfil their daily activities. While sexual addiction shares some features with substance addiction, the person is addicted to an activity, not a substance.

According to the survey, 73% of respondents agreed that the too much use of sexual enhancement drugs is responsible for uncontrollable sexual urge that leads to the untimely death of men. Whilst 27% of respondents simply say the too much use of sexual enhancement drugs is a futile attempt to give legitimacy to the irresponsible and greedy behaviour by men to have multiple sex partners.

Previous investigations into sex addiction have only measured the brains, without exposure to sexual imagery that constitutes “normal” degrees of sexual behaviour or desire. This study is a wakeup call to the World Health Organization to declare sex starvation as a disease like any other disease, and to consider making drugs that will lessen the sexual urge of men rather than allowing all types of sexual enhancements drugs that do not take into consideration the Health Implications of people.

In conclusion, the study provides accurate information that raises awareness of not only the harmful effect of sexual enhancement drugs but also the dangers of sexual addition.  According to Dr. O’Leary “Very good data have shown that in men, weight loss (with help alone improves sexual function. It’s probably because fat makes estrogen, which fights testosterone needed for sexual function”.
