taoist foreplay shiatsu secrets love

"Well presented book. As a chinese massage and herbal practitioner specialising in working with reproductive and sexual issues, it is always good to see material like this. Suprising too, as my experience of the Shiatsu world (many years ago) was that there was no understanding of the importance and power of sexual energy for healing and that the whole subject of sensual touch was totally taboo!" Nicholas Hudis.

Master of the Zen School Kris Deva North and Taoist Grandmaster Mantak Chia create a compelling journey through the secret ‘erotic pressure points’ of Chinese Medicine.

‘Taoist Foreplay’ reveals the secrets of Taoist Foreplay, from it’s origins at the Court of the legendary Yellow Emperor through 4,000 years of sexual history to it’s relevance for modern lovers: combining loving touch with healing power.

Sexual practices have been studied for centuries in both East and West. Chinese and Japanese traditions combined the study of sex with medicine: certain pressure-points and meridians were found to stimulate and sustain sexual desire. Using the secrets of these points and channels makes for longer and more pleasurable sexual encounters. Peak moments can be prolonged beyond bliss, into ecstasy. Like cooking a Chinese meal, preparation is the key.

"You can become a far more effective Lover," says North. "Woman, man, straight, gay and bi, you can please your partner and please yourself. The act itself is natural. You know what to do. It is the moments leading up to the act which make it more or less pleasurable for your partner. Women fear insensitivity. Men fear inability to perform. Both fear rejection. Knowing the psycho-sensual secrets of certain pressure points helps you become a better lover, however good you are already. Are you aroused more quickly, your partner more slowly? Its quite usual for the man to climax first. Woman comes to the boil more slowly but simmers longer. He’s done in, she ready for more. "

Based on the form of a conventional shiatsu treatment, the text and pictures give detailed guidance, showing precisely where to place the hands - and other body-parts - to stimulate and sustain arousal.

Many of the pressure points from shiatsu healing massage are shown with their more arcane applications, sometimes with passing reference to the clinical use, for example:
"Conception Vessel 1, known as the Gate of Life and Death, so named because the retention of sexual energy is said to prolong life, has subtle use as arousal point for both sexes, especially good for prolonging male orgasm. Clinical use is said to be able help with prevention and relief of symptoms of some prostate conditions."

Self-shiatsu is well covered, with exercises for men and women to keep themselves at the peak of sexual fitness, and the women’s practice of using the famous Chinese Drilled Jade Egg is described in detail.

A chapter on what to look for in a lover, from astrological compatibility to physical attributes as indicators of sexual performance, is followed by advice on coping with sex-vampires and energy-parasites.

The book shows a profound knowledge of the subject, which it conveys with a light touch and hundreds of colour photographs.

"Why do i have to wait till i'm old to find these things out? A detailed breakdown and pictured diagramed map of the sexual pressure points. It also tells you what you can achieve by correctly manipulating these points. It took a long time to be delivered because i have a dodgy postman but when it got here i read it in a day and started practicing immediately. I recommend it highly but only gave it a 4 out 5 because it was slightly confusing to follow at first. Once you've figured out that this is one of those books you have to start at the beginning and not jump in and out of interesting sounding chapters then you've gone clear!!! Good book highly recommended except for that little point. If you're into sexual energy love making / tantra / kundalini then this book should be on your shelf,,,,( i mean by your bed)" Danny reviews Taoist Foreplay on Amazon
