Sperm for flawless skin?

I am a 17-year-old boy. I have heard that sperm is very good for skin. Few of my friends apply it on their face in order to cure pimples. Though I haven't tried it so far but I surely want to try it out. I have loads of pimples on my face and I can't afford skin specialists. I have seen some visible results on friends but I'm a little doubtful about applying it on face. Can you please confirm how far this is true and also suggest what to eat to have flawless skin? Please reply soon.

Guy in trouble

Reply From Dr. Prem Lata Chawla:
Sperms as face pack! No body has ever heard of it. Your friends are making fun of you and you better not be so naive. There are no special foods or vitamins or medicines for acne. You should see a skin specialist in case the acne are real troublesome and meanwhile you should wash your face 2 to 3 times a day with soap and water and not touch the acne with hands or with any other sharp instruments. This will at least prevent secondary infections.


Parents dislike my lover

I am a 24-year-old unmarried Muslim boy staying in the Middle East. I recently met a girl through the Net who is also a Muslim but from a different caste and state in India than mine. I really like her since there isn't anything bad about her. She is so simple and sober. Now the problem is that I know my parents want me to get married in the same caste. My mom is a bit worried about what other people would say to her and how they would react if I, her only child, would marry someone from a different caste. She is a bit over possessive and somewhat religious too. My father is going to retire soon and he and my mother will be settling down in India. How can I convince her to accept the girl I like and wish to marry and make her believe that no one is going to take me away from them because for me they are the first priority then comes everybody else and I also know the girl very well and I'm sure I'll be happy with her but my mother thinks that I might be persuaded by my would-be-wife. Please help me out.

So, you want to live life on the edge, do the tight rope-walking act between two equally demanding relationships. Well, it is not going to be easy and in the end every one (including you) is going to be unhappy. There is no way to convince your mother as she does not want to change her opinion and most of her insecurities are rooted deep in the cultural environment of her times. As long as you have not committed to the girl there is no problem and you can safely get married to the girl of your mother's choice and live for your mother, as you sincerely want to do. You have a slight problem only if you have already committed to the girl and she along with her family have consented for the marriage knowing fully well the attitude of your mother towards inter-caste marriages. Backing out from such a scenario is certainly going to be somewhat embarrassing for all the parties now but in the long run it would turn out to be the best course as marriages (in Indian context) not blessed by the parents of either party are usually not happy as love is not enough for marriages to succeed.
