Taoism is pronounced ‘Dow-ism.’ It’s sometimes defined as a religion, philosophy, alchemy, a system of magical wisdom, or as a series of health practices similar to yoga.

The Chinese word Tao means “the way, the path.” Tao refers to the way of the universe – the way things are.
As a spiritual system, Tao means the way to achieving a true understanding of nature, our mind, and reality, to the way of living in harmony with the changes of Nature.
Over the centuries many branches of Taoist teachings grew, integrating the various activities to one’s daily life.
These teachings include:
- Balanced Diet
- Chinese Medicine
- Qi Gong
- Martial Arts
- Sexual Wisdom
- Outer and inner alchemy
- Feng Shui and much more….
There has always been arts and sciences devoted to honoring the sacred and sexual self.
Chinese sexual arts and practices have been part of Taoism from its earliest records of over 4,600 years ago.
Taoist sexual masters believe that sexual energy is the most powerful human energy.
For Men they believe, his sexual energy is lost primarily through ejaculation. They have developed methods for ejaculation control as the foundation for conserving, strengthening, circulating, and transforming sexual energy.
Some sexual practices include:
- Belly Breathing
- Contracting The PC Muscles
- Pressing on the Million Dollar Point
- Scrotum Tugging
For Women they believe her sexual energy is lost during menstruation and childbirth.
For women, these practices include Jade Egg exercises to strengthen the vaginal muscles and increase orgasmic potential.
These teachings were written primarily for householders, and were called fang-chung (“bedchamber art”) literature.
Like the Kama Sutra of India and the Pillow Books of Japan, they included variants of position and techniques for stimulating one’s partner, genital reflexology, ejaculation control for men, and ways of enhancing arousal in women.
Dr. Kevin Chua (Sexologist at ofnoah.sg) believes that, “Her biggest sexual organ is her mind. Awaken her inner lover by turning on her imagination, before stimulating her clitoris. Provoking her imagination creates anticipation because her mind will start racing with the possibilities of what might happen when your bodies come together.”
