"Sex that makes you and your partner
sexual yoga - learn how to have sex that actually promotes health...
"Traditional Western hypocrisy towards sex has prevented
serious study of human sexuality in the Western world until only a few decades
Like everything else in Western

TAO SEXUAL YOGA
"The Chinese have always held the Taoist view that sexual
relations between male and female are the primary earthly manifestation of the
universal principles of Yin & Yang.
As such, the Chinese regard sex to
be as natural and indispensable to human health and longevity as
rain falling on the fields is to plant life.
The intense sense of guilt attached
to sexual matters in Judeo-Christian tradition is, in Chinese eyes,
one of the most unpleasant and incomprehensible aspects of Western
Traditional Western hypocrisy
towards sex has prevented serious study of human sexuality in the
Western world until only a few decades ago. Like everything else in
Western philosophy, sex is viewed through the lens of dualism; it is

become the world's most astute observers of human sexuality, as well
as the most inventive lovers."

When a man ejaculates, he ejects his
semen-essence from his body.
When a woman reaches orgasm, she too
'ejaculates' all sorts of sexual secretions internally, but these
are retained within her body.
For both men and women, sexual essence is an
important storage battery for vital energy and a major source of
resistance and immunity.
In conventional sexual relations, a man
ejaculates every time he has intercourse, regardless of his own age
This habit gradually robs him of his primary source of vitality and
immunity, leaving him weak and vulnerable to disease and shortening

from her own orgasmic secretions and from her assimilation of potent
