The practice of sexual continence is based on the cultivation of this energy and using it in your spiritual evolution.
You have to learn how to make the sexual energy (located in the area of your genitalia) circulate in your entire body, so that you have multiple all-body orgasms and to experience the famous erotic ecstasy.
According to the Taoist tradition, all our organs offer the best part of their energy during orgasm, in order to create a new life. This is the power used to give life to a baby.
However, the Taoist and Tantric masters consider that if the aim is not procreation, it is best to preserve this energy and sublimate it into refined forms of energy, which will make us leap into and experience spiritual states.
The orgasmic energy suffuses every cell of our body. In order to be healthy and active, we need to perceive regularly this rejuvenating orgasmic energy - ideal would be every day.
Once you have developed the ability to make this energy circulate through your body, you will be able to perceive this sensation through your body everywhere and anytime.
You may ask yourselves if this perception of the sexual energy will have as result a constant state of sexual arousal, and you will consequently feel the need to have intercourse all the time, like "an itching that needs to be scratched".
On the contrary, men and women have sexual impulses that need to become concrete or directed in a well-established direction.
In the West, we usually try to repress these desires, but according to the Tantric and Taoist traditions, such repression leads inevitably to physical and psychical unbalances.
"Cultivating" your sexual energy does not equal uncontrollable sexual urges, but a feeling of peaceful energetic fulfillment.
A man who has had multiple orgasms by practicing sexual continence explains the difference:
"Before I started practicing sexual continence, if I did not ejaculate for a while, my sexual drive became so strong, that I had to watch porn movies, look for one night stands, or attend the services of prostitutes.
Once I would ejaculate, that need disappeared and I could not understand why I spent so much time and so much money seeking its satisfaction. I would tell to myself that I would no repeat the same mistake, but I knew that after a while the sexual pressure would return and I would start all over again.
When I finally began to practice sexual continence, I realized that my sexual energy was still at its peak, but somehow balanced. It was the first time in my life when I was happy to be a man, because this time I was in control of my sexual energy."
The more you practice sexual continence, the more you will realize that it is possible for you to have more control on your sexual energy than before, and you will have to learn how to direct properly this huge energy upwards.
The Hatha Yogic asana-s and techniques for meditation will help you transform the sexual energy into loving, volitional, mental and spiritual energy.
HOW DOES THE ENERGY FLOW INSIDE THE BODY?
There is a Tantric saying that goes like this: "the mind goes to a certain direction, and the energy follows it". The energy tends to accumulate in the place where you focus your mind.
Experiments in the field of biofeedback have proved that focusing the attention on one art of the body may determine an intensification of the nervous and muscular activity in that particular area.
The more intense the mental concentration, the more ample the flow of energy. Remember that you must not push or draw the energy, but simply focus your mind on another part.
The complete understanding of this fact is essential for an efficient practice. However, for a good control of the sexual energy, you will not simply commute your attention along the skin.
In this case, you will perceive a palpable/concrete flow of warm energy, under the form of tingling in the particular area you are focusing upon.
