Herbs Used in Taoist Sexology and the Martial Arts
The custom of regulating sexual activity, which simply means controlling how often one engages in sex, is a practice that has been carried on for countless generations by Chinese adepts. The little-known esoteric practice by no mere coincidence is also representative of one of Taoist Sexology’s most important underlying principles. Often devout followers of Taoist philosophy, many of the staunchest advocates of controlled sexual frequency were also martial artists. The eccentric sexual habits of these ancient warriors was based on the Taoist belief that long-life, enhanced Chi levels, and increased strength and endurance are all advanced by controlling or otherwise conserving one’s sexual energy.
The argument for exercising sexual restraint is further supported by some of Kung Fu’s most renowned figures who claim that it is the strict management of sexual energy – sometimes referred to as “preserving the essence” that is the source for the extraordinary feats of strength that have become a permanent part of martial arts lore. The functional application of the esoteric practice can be seen in high level Chinese internal martial art’s such as Chi Kung where advanced practitioners temporarily avoid sex and use the energy that builds-up as a result of constraining the semen to intensify their Chi and move the vital energy within the body in the practice commonly referred to as “Circulating the Chi.”
Proponents of the sexual alchemical practice include notable figures like Sun Simiao the famous Tang Dynasty physician, the legendary Hua To the creator of a series of exercises called “Five Animals Play” which are considered the initiator of later forms of Kung Fu based on animal movements such as Bak Fu Pai (white tiger), Tai Sing Pek Kwan (monkey style) and White Crane, as well as the seventh-century physician Liu Ching author of the Chinese classic Longevity Principles.

The seemingly irreconcilable disagreement over this ancient practice’s ability to increase physical, mental, spiritual, and so-called psychic powers has been debated for centuries and not surprisingly, continues even today. The act of regulating sexual activity, what Taoists refer to as conserving one’s “Jing” Chi, can be traced all the way back to man’s primordial beginnings. Curiously, throughout human history, not only has this ancient practice been an important feature of mysticism and occult practices, it has also been one of the guiding principles in the esoteric form of the internal practice commonly known as Chi Kung. ...to read the entire article use this link: http://seaofchi.com/index.php?route=product/product&product_id=3776&search=is+conserving+jing&description=true
