Chinese sexual glossary- terms from the Jade bedroom
Western readers with a taste for florid imagery and an aesthetic attitude towards sex may well wish to adopt the English equivalents of these terms when discussing sex with their paramours.

Listed below, in alphabetical order of their technical meanings, are some of the most charming Chinese terms from the Jade bedroom.

"The arts of the bedroom constitute the climax of human emotions and encompass the totality of Tao. Therefore, the ancient sages regulated man's external pleasures in order to control his inner passions, and they made detailed rules and terms governing sexual intercourse. If a man regulates his sexual pleasure, he will feel at peace and attain longevity. If, however, a man abandons himself to sexual pleasure without regard for the rules set forth in the ancient texts, he will soon fall ill and gravely injure himself."

[Dynastic History of Later Han]
