Dr. Ng believes sex is vital to healthy life and human intimate relationships. Due to various diseases and psychological problems, many people suffered from sexual dysfunction. For instance, men can have erectile problem, premature or delayed ejaculation problem and reduced libido; women can have reduced libido, lack of sexual climax and lack of lubrication, causing them to abstain from sex totally.
