Sex Is Not A Taboo In Qigong Practice

sex is not taboo in qigong

Sex is quite a debatable topic among qigong practitioners. Some people believe that sex need to be strictly limited in order to have better health, because energy/qi is consumed during sex. To them, preserving the body qi is the key. While some other people believe that practice during sex could boost body’s overall health, because congenital qi can be activated during sex. Congenital qi could help to supplement the body energy/qi and to strengthen the whole body.

In the long history of Taoist qigong practice, the debates between the two viewpoints have never ceased. Sex is never a taboo in qigong practice. Actually traditional Taoist qigong have two completely different practice approaches: to eliminate sex completely, or to practice through excessive sex.

Sex can be a pleasure or a disaster

Now let’s look at sex itself without any discrimination. You see, sex is neither good nor bad. It is just a natural thing that our body needs. Just like the food we eat, and the air we breathe. Sex is what our body needs to fulfill its destiny: to produce new body.

If you notice that I mention “new body” instead of “new life”, you are aware that life is not body. However life cannot exist without body, can it? And life is beyond this body and mind.

If you focus on the body wellness, yes sex is a tool, one of the most powerful tools. If you use the tool in the right way, it can help to boost up body energy and keep you young and energetic. If you don’t know how to use the tool appropriately, you could end up destroying your body and life.

Just like any other tool you have, car, house, knife, etc, you need to know how to use them. You also need to know how to maintain it properly. Can you imagine a car without proper maintenance? It could not help you to reach your destination, instead it would put you in dangerous situations on the way.

Sex and orgasm

When people talk about sex, they cannot avoid talking about orgasm…

  1. Thank you for this ” hard topic “. Agree… I think its important for everyone to be complete and sexual life is one side of our existence.

    1. The moment I wrote this article, I knew that it would trigger many complicated feelings of many people. I realize that sex itself might not be the taboo. But talking about it can be…See, there’s a deeper issue behind if one can realize this. It’s nothing wrong with talking or not talking about sex. It’s the feelings that people have against such idea. From religious, moral, or whatever perspective, if one feels ashamed, guilty, filthy, or any kind of weird feelings towards this most natural subject, one needs to look inside and find out why. It’s caused by social influences. Most people live under the social influences. Those things block people from connecting with their truth and that’s the biggest issue.
      Thank you very much for leaving a comment bravely.

  2. Thank you for sharing. It is a controversial topic for sure. We have been so blessed with the physicality of our body and there is so much distortion around our sexuality. There are times to be in that loving relationship giving and receiving in communion with ourself and also another. And there are times as well to practice celibacy. It’s all good. Much like the waves in the ocean constant and flow. Once again thank you so much for sharing

    1. You are right. We are able to experience this life in different dimensions because we have this body. Thank you for comment.
