Sperm for flawless skin?

1.
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

Parents dislike my lover

2.
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.

In love with my sister

1.
I am a 21-year-old guy, madly in love with my cousin sister. I have been deeply attracted to her from past seven years. Whenever I have sex with my girlfriend, I actually think of her. I have tried to make her understand on many occasions and have made physical advances, which even she encourages. However, I am too scared to express my sexual feelings as I think of her being a family member. I know you will discourage me if I want to have sex with her. Please advise as to how I should proceed. I would not like to disclose my feelings, as I do not want to break families. Can you help me out?

You think you know my opinion! Well, you know only one quarter of it and the rest three fourth of it has many forbidden words beginning with 'b' and 'f'. In short, my opinion is castigatory and I have a very humble suggestion that you better mend your ways.

 

Mother-in-law is ill-treated

2.
I am a foreign national married to an Indian. My husband's 83-year-old mother is sick and is living in India with two brothers of my husband in the same house, which is her property. One of my husband's brothers is very rude to her and is abusive towards her. She is afraid that he may kill her. He wants to possess all her property and even my husband's share. Other brother is timid and is afraid himself. I cannot bring her here as she is unfit to travel and won't be comfortable living in a cold country. My husband is himself sick and all the time worried about his mom that makes me tensed. My husband cannot go back to India and live there as he has migrated here and we have kids, jobs and other liabilities. When we had gone to India, we tried to convince this rude brother for good sense and he was behaving well with my mother-in-law that time but as soon as we left he was back to his cruel behaviour towards the old lady. He and his wife claims to be leaders of some political party (Shiv Sena). Is there any way to protect this helpless lady?

Reply From Dr. Prem Lata Chawla:
There are many ways of looking at the problem. You have written from your point of view and you have been honest enough to write that your husband is incapable of doing any thing for his mother but still is hoping to get a share of her property. Similarly, her other son has his limitations and you mother-in-law is being looked after by another son who is not sure about his share in her property. Your mother-in-law has still not made up her mind about the property. It is best that the three brothers sit together and sort the matter out. A generous financial help from your side might prove to be useful. After all what are sons for? Why involve legal, religious or voluntary organizations for sorting out the problem. Intervention by any of these organizations would be rather disruptive.
