A little about myself. I'm a 22 year old male in the service. Before the service I lived in south east China for 2 years. I picked up on some teachings while abroad and decided to try it out for myself. I started playing with the practice of semen retention, blindly. I was unaware you could cultivate the energy and manifest it into hobbies, activities, or exercise. I simply obstained from ejaculation, usually lasted a week or two maximum, and eventually gave in to the sexual frustration. I'm here to learn how to cultivate (however that may be) that explosive energy. I must say that not ejaculating for a week or so definitely makes me feel more grounded, not so anxious, and more aware of my surroundings. I would like to maintain the positive points of retaining whilst having the pleasures of sexual stimulation. Can anyone point me in the right direction here on the forums to learn more about semen retention during orgasm and methods of meditation designed to cool your 'go-nads' so to speak?
