Love is an art. It is something that you do and learn and often you do not give enough importance to learning, cultivating and fulfilling your being through this amazing gift of existence. Though modern sex specialists' research have shown many times the deep truth of the Oriental secret principles of eroticism, they are still not known enough and a lot less applied.
For the Taoist masters, as well as for the Oriental sages, making love is a sublime act that belongs to the natural course of life. It is more than just a physical union. It's also a multidimensional communion that engages the entire being of the two lovers, generating amazing transformation on the conscience level.
The couple is placed in the centre of the Universe: the man and the woman are transfigured because of the two creative forces of manifestation YANG (+, male, solar, emissive) and YIN (-, female, lunar, receptive). Sexual intercourse is perfectly controlled, extremely pleasant and intense. They generate health, longevity and spiritual force.
Taoism is known in the Occident especially as an ancient philosophical system. But it was and it is more than that. It wasn't only a theory, but it was a practice. It offered people principles and ideas and also techniques and proceedings of transformation and spiritual growth. Then they converted them into a philosophy of life where life is fully and completely consciously experienced.
The fundamental idea of Taoist philosophy is that the energy penetrates everything and it is the source of LIFE. In the universal organization of things and phenomena the human being is a tiny creature, almost insignificant and vulnerable, which cannot hope for a harmonious or happy life unless the human experiences fully the equilibrium with this subtle macrocosmic source of LIFE and POWER.
TAO is the infinite energy of nature. The one who wants to practice TAO needs to be really relaxed, open and natural in order to get in perfect resonance with this infinite energy. The mysterious science of Taoist eroticism has been structured on this simple, prudent, economical philosophy, full of force.
In order to amplify endlessly the erotic disposal of those who love each other there are some precise methods of ruling the sexual energy through sexual continence. This means mainly retaining the sperm inside the man's body without eliminating it through ejaculation or nightly pollution. For a woman it implies the lack of specific explosive discharge during orgasm and reduction of menstrual secretion.
THE THREE PRINCIPLES OF THE MYSTERIOUS SCIENCE OF TAOIST EROTICISM
There are three essential principles, fruit of the experience built in million of years. They help us see the difference between the Taoist eroticism and all the other sexual theories:
1. The man has to suppress completely his tendency or desire to ejaculate, experiencing in frenzy the passion and erotic pleasure, but he is not dominated by it.
2. Ejaculation is exhausting and it isn't, in any case, the man's erotic ecstasy, being assimilated with a great loss of sexual potential, of subtle energy and of vital fluids, which sooner or later, lead to depression and exhaustion.
3. Female multiple, ample, cervix-uterus orgasm is extremely important too.
These principles find themselves in all modern sexual works (for example, the "five signs" that reveal the female orgasm, the way they are described in an ancient Taoist work are the same with the study of sex specialist A.C. Kinsey in "Sexual Behaviour of the Human Female").
