I have practiced and studied tantra and tao for 20 years, my father is an expert in Tao or non-ejaculatory sex and has taught me. I was a monk living in a monastery for some time. I’m a physician, I’m good dealing with girls, sports and everyday problems. In this thread I’ll explain all the things I have done to be at this point. I hope it helps. Having a role model My father has never masturbated and only ejaculated to conceived me he understands sexuality and women as nobody else I know. He has helped me to understand girls and by his example seeing the real effects of semen retention and mastering your sexual energy has on you, I could say he is the main cause of my success. So try to find someone who understands women and sexuality and make him your mentor.

These are my favorites the practice of brahmacharya by sivananda the tao of health, sex and longevity by Daniel Reid the Taoists secrets of love, cultivating male sexual energy by Mantak Chia connecting sexuality to health for me sex and semen retention are health and energy. The most important to me is making this connection to sex and put pleasure in a second plane. So non ejaculatory sex is essential to me and to never ejaculate no matter what.
