Is yoga exercises are harmful for sexuality ?

I am 38 Year Old Male,married,and I am doing some yoga excercises.A few Excercises including dhanurasana (bow pose)and salabasana (locust pose)each for two minutes.While doing the above poses the pressure is on abdominal and hip.I feel the pressure in the penis and testis but there is no pain.Many Yoga Masters says that's good for men's sex life. My question is will the pressure cause any harm to the testes and lowering the level of testosterone secretion and thus affect manhood and libido.

Yoga exercises are not harmful for sexuality. However keep in mind that pressure on genitals should not be excessive. Light pressure is good.

Hi, I am currently taking 1). Methadone 10 mg. pills 120 mg. per day. 2). dilauted 8mg. tabs 16mg. per day 3). Depakote 250 mg. tabs and I take 750 mg. per day, and 4). testosterone injections 200 mg. every 2 weeks. So here s my question, I m also taking baclofen I don t know the dose but I would think it s whatever a Dr. would prescribe to a person like me taking the meds I have listed above I take 3 tablets a day and I m currently experiencing a lot of muscle spasms so last 3 nights I took 2 baclofen at bedtime, and this morning when my wife tried to wake me up I must have been dreaming because when she asked me some pretty normal questions I gave her some strange answers to her questions, infact one question she asked me the answer I gave her involved one of my aunts that if I was awake and in a normal state of mind the aunt that I mentioned has been dead for like 8-9 years, I m just wondering if baclofen mixed w/ any of these meds I have mentioned could cause strange dreams???
