Jan 21, Deborah Linker rated it really liked it. What can I say. This manual based on ancient Chinese teachings has a great deal of good information. Especially for a recently single woman who has been out of the relationship scene for quite some time. Was first introduced to this book over 30 years ago. I appreciated it more at this time in my life.
Shelves: sex-nonfiction , how-to. The premise of this book is that men should not ejaculate every time they have sexual intercourse. Some folks believe that too much ejaculation saps men's energy. This book makes the case for controlling ejaculation and gives tips and techniques for doing so. Everyone should read it. Buen libro para mirar el amor desde los ojos orientales.
Oct 20, Maria rated it liked it. A good source of information of how Tao and ancient china dealt with love. An innovative way of thinking of love in the modern society and introducing it to our daily lives. Oct 13, Cameron Powers rated it it was amazing. Understanding is deepening Oct 22, Serena.. I Taoisti devono vivere davvero serenamente godendosi a pieno la vita, altro che noi con la nostra morale e la nostra idea di punizione, peccato, pentiti o brucia all'inferno..
Jun 15, Cody rated it liked it. It does not deal with the woman's role in sex, other than it's her satisfaction that this book is working for. Much of it deals with practices men can use to prolong and sustain their erections. It also has sections describing the evolution of the tao as time went on, what evolutions and incarnations it appeared as, and there are many lovely paintings from various pillow books and ancient sex manuals.
A lot of colorful phrasing "jade stem", "water-chestnut teeth" makes for very entertaining reading at the very least. Jun 21, J. Pedersen rated it it was amazing Shelves: spiritual. I read this book several times through 20 years. Reading it again always adds something to my life, makes lovemaking a greater pleasure. This ancient wisdom, based on mutual respect and respect for, and knowledge of, our natural instincts gives me, little by little, a freedom from prejudices that keep me from just enjoying : Natives in Greenland called lovemaking "laughing together".
This book moved my focus from the in and out business part of it, but not all of it to a new sensuality, and a I read this book several times through 20 years. This book moved my focus from the in and out business part of it, but not all of it to a new sensuality, and as eager to please my partner as to be pleased.
I highly recommend it to anybody with an unsatisfying sexlife and everybody with an open mind, who wants to improve his or her lovelife. Dec 09, Snazzie Lama rated it it was amazing. Awesome, interesting and highly recommend for those who want to develop a deeper connection with themselves and their partner. Jun 29, Jessi is currently reading it.
