Herbal aphrodisiacs come in the form of pills, massage oils and sprays and more and more men are seeking refuse in these dubious "medicines."

Ranjeesh Mehra, a wholesale medicine trader estimated that the market in Amritsar was worth anywhere near Rs 1 crore per month. "People don't mind spending a fortune for improving their sex life," Mehra said. "The phenomenon is much more pronounced in metros and has now trickled down to smaller cities."

There is no scientific evidence to back the use of herbal products to boost sex life, but the matter is so delicate that men often take herbal medicines instead of visiting doctors.
