Ayurveda mentions diet (Ahara), sleep (Nidra) and Brahmacharya as the Tripods of life. Sex is a basic instinct, but sexual behaviour is a learned ability. The concept of Kama reveals that the recreational aspects like pleasure are equally important to its procreation aspects. Shukra Avrita Vata is a clinical condition characterized by Shukra Avega, Shukra Ativega and Nishphalatvam. It can be compared to Premature ejaculation (PE) a psychosexual orgasmic disorder. Sex lies in the mind and not between the legs. - Sigmund Freud. In the course of research involvement of the psycho-neuro- sexual axis (Vata, Shukra and Mana) was observed. Keeping this in mind 60 subjects were subjected to a Single blind placebo controlled clinical study consisting of three randomized parallel groups of 20 subjects each to tackle the problem on psychological (Group A- Placebo + psychological counseling), psychobiological (Group B- Rasayana Yoga + psychological counseling) and neuro-bio-psychological (Group C- Rasayana Yoga + Shirodhara + psychological counseling) platforms. Though statistically highly significant results, were observed in all three groups. The improvement in Group C was better compared to Group B with regards to Intra-vaginal ejaculatory latency time, voluntary control over ejaculation, patient satisfaction, performance anxiety and number of penile thrusts. In terms of partner satisfaction improvement in Group B was better compared to Group C.
