For those looking for information on how Taoist Sexology is used in the Martial Arts refer to the Sexual Conservation subcategory. Here we will discuss the custom of regulating sexual activity, which simply means controlling how often one engages in sex, which 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 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.
Finally, we delve into herbs that are used in Taoism for Treating Sexual Dysfunction. Taoist believes that excessive discharges have a deleterious effect on one’s sexual functioning as well as their overall health. According to Taoist teaching limiting the number of discharges of this vital fluid provides substantial benefits. Chief among them are delaying the aging process, lifelong sexual empowerment and increased physical and mental power. In this subcategory we present several formulas used in Taoist practices including the famed General Yang Seng, Seven Seeds, and Wu Zi Bu Shen.
