It is also a big problem in Japan, which is interesting given it has a vibrant pornography industry and many people are consuming it there, not just their global exports market.

 

 

 

The number one complaint we heard from women in Japan was that their boyfriends didn’t like sex. Many of my friends who hear this of course are happy to volunteer themselves for a good cause of addressing the emotional and physical health epidemic faced by these deprived people.

Its common issue in muslim communities of overly aggression and yang overload due to people not free to vent themselves.

Our life is  in fact  a struggle between the spiritual( Shen) and the physical ( jing +qi) forces , and they fight with each other in every minute of it. The Taiji diagram already shows us its meaning  :

People get the need to masturbate either because the have accumulated too much jing ( physical side stronger) or because they are in depression, confusion .., for example, if their girlfriends run away from them, or they get fired,  or playing too much online games..etc, that is , they are in  spiritually low , depleted status .., then in either case , the balance is broken and  you have the  lust gets  an upper hand ,so, you succumb to your lust..

 

Besides , it is not when people  are in an awake status that they have to pay attention to  , but  say,  in sleeping or  whatever status or form it be ,  as long as jing is lost , then it is fatal and you lose.

 

All other means to tame  , say not watching porn videos, getting a bath of cold water when you get strong desire, not eating spicy food..etc  are all trivial , not  thorough . So difficult it is that  although Taoist alchemy claims "capable of retaining jing  gives people forever life"  looks seemingly  not so significant , hardly can  people succeed in taming that beast inside.

 

Nor the direct-qi-from-lower-dantian-upwards way be the solution because you  are till using an ordinary mind's way to treat the problem . In fact, a deep emptied Mind is  its  through solution (  thorough treatment of  unclean jing and qi ) as what  the I-Ching says :

 

"君子終日乾乾,反復道也"
