Recently I read the book The Multi-Orgasmic Couple - How Couples Can Dramatically Enhance Their Pleasure, Intimacy and Health by Mantak Chia, Maneewan Chia, Douglas Abrams and Rachel Carlton Abrams, M.D.
This book is full of Taoists beliefs on how important intimacy and sex are to our relationships and health. I was amazed at some of the understanding the ancient Taoists had about the affects of sex on our bodies. Modern science has proven that wonderful chemicals are released during sexual activity, and research has presented us with data on the importance of intimacy in our lives overall. My question is how did these Taoists understand these things thousands of years ago?
I found some very interesting things in this book. For starters Taoists doctors would prescribe sexual activity in specific positions to cure medical conditions for people. Another thing I loved was the focus on the energy of sexual activity and how that energy was the basis for everything. This book also explained the health benefits of touch and kissing, which made a lot of sense to me. Basically this book explains how not only sex is the fountain of youth, but is is also one of the most powerful healing energies in our lives.
I highly recommend every couple to add this book to their library. This book not only helps you understand how important intimacy is in your life, but it also shows how sacred it should be.
