Taoism is a spiritual tradition that embraces sexuality and uses it as a force for healing and spiritual growth. Jennifer Lawless describes a Taoist thrusting method called the Nine Steps, which is designed to stimulate, massage, and keep a man’s penis in an excellent state of readiness.
Taoist sexual practices are the way some Taoists practiced sex. Practitioners believed that by performing these sexual practices, one could stay in good health, and attain longevity. One of these practices was a thrusting method to stimulate, massage, and keep the man’s lingam (penis) at an excellent state of readiness. This Taoist thrusting method is called the Nine Steps.
To perform the Nine Steps to perfection, a man must possess great patience and staying power. One complete set of Nine Steps is 180 thrusts, so most men need training to achieve it. However, performing as many thrusts as possible will help the man in his general vitality and his female partner will be ecstatic from the sexual stimulation she receives. Read more

According to Chinese medicine, an energy imbalance is the root of nearly every ailment, whether physical or emotional. One way to re-balance the body’s energy is through sex.
Sexual intercourse unites energetic polarities – negative and positive, magnetic and electric, yin and yang, female and male – which depend on each other for completion and growth. Together, these two energies represent a complete whole. Some of the most powerful healing points on the body are located on the genitals. Using different sex positions to target specific spots can make a pleasurable act also a healing act. Read more
Tantric sex isn’t so much a set of techniques as an approach to sex. In Tantra, sex is a means to reach higher states of consciousness. Maithuna is ritual sex used to attain spiritual unification with your partner.
Maithuna is a Sanskrit term used in Tantra, which is most often translated as sexual union within a ritual. Maithuna refers to the coming together of god and goddess with the acknowledgement that everything is sacred, from food to acts of lovemaking. It uses physical unification for the purpose of creating spiritual unification.
Since Maithuna is practiced as a spiritual ceremony, there is an acknowledgement and honoring of a divine being. However, in Tantra, this deity is acknowledged and honored in your partner, rather than as an intellectual concept or spiritual ideal. Tantra encourages lovers to see the divinity in each other.
