Punching bag, this is the 21st century. It's ok to come out of the closet.
Well it seems obvious that the internal arts are about controling, cultivating, and using all ones own internal energies for whatever purpose they feel appropriate; healing, fighting, sex, etc. I'm sure conserving seed allows for higher internal energy levels and of course this does not mean not having sex (see mantak chia's stuff). Basically I have heard different things from different teachers, I think that the schools that adhere to strict sexual abstinance involve themselves more extensively in taoist inner alchemy and spiritual practices, while the schools that are more combat oriented are a little less strict.
I wish your parents adhered to the Taoist alchemy and spiritual practices.
I can speak for the combat oriented martial artists by saying that the best thing to do after beating someone beyond recognition is to expell a load of chi on (or in) a young lady (willing or not).
Bob #2, I generally find your comments very amusing and usually quite true in their own way. I presume you are joking about rape. But it is not a topic that lends itself to humor.
And don't give me any about being a politically correct liberal or chi hugger. I am neither. I am a fairly hard nosed ex-prosecutor.
Simply put, jokes about rape are generally in poor taste.
I think you misunderstood- I didn't mean 'the young lady' was the one willing or not.
Maybe you don't have experience with premature ejubulation yet. But let me tell you- it can be a deal breaker given the right circumstances.
Bob #2, Sorry about that, I did mis-read it. As to various "problems", yeah, those can be deal breakers.
On a brighter note, you should really consider writing a book (really, no kidding). It could be titled "Bob #2 Guide to Martial Arts and Life in the 21st Century. Your comments on this board could be a starting point.
You could include Bob#2 discussions of chi, amazing martial arts feats, how to choose the right instructor and then broaden it to include My Life Working With Old People and a chapter on how to properly raise kids.
You could perhaps co-author it with (the now MIA, I have not seen her/him/it lately) Big Balled Betty and Nancy Pancy.
No fooling, it would sell. I would buy it.
A better title might be "A Premature Ejaculator's Guide to Grappling with the Unwilling".
Easy now there big guy.
Insert smiley face here.
DP- maybe you and your buddies willingly grapple but I prefer to work out with guys who are trying with all their might to defeat or escape me. That stuff you and the guys in that rest stop men's room isn't technically considered grappling.
BK- I've been sending manuscripts out regularly since the mid 70's after a near death experience changed my life. I've gone through countless reams of paper and cartons of crayons trying to get my message to the literated martial artists out there. Such a tiny demographic doesn't illicit excitement from publishing houses.
Thanks for the props though. One of these days you may see me on Oprah's must read list!
(by the way, your prematurity issue is our little secret).
It's been mentioned that some people are of the opinion that sex, whether it's with the five headed maiden or with someone else prevents one from acheiving high levels of internal power, my question is why that is. As I mentioned before, some people think that it makes no difference, some think that having a meditative or chi kung element present in relations is beneficial, everyone has different opinions and I was curious as to why some people think this or that. Basically I am asking for some interesting feedback on this subject. I guess I just wrote the same thing that I wrote above, oh well.
Well, pay attention to your level of energy after having lots of sex. If that doesn't happen too often, don't worry about it.
So the logic is to abstain from sex to conserve energy right?
Most people will feel more fatigued after a hard martial arts training session than after sex. So following the above logic, you could become a "higher level" martial artist and conserve more energy if you never worked out and only had sex.
I'm changing my "training" schedule.
Why not go for one of the methods from India? Get all hot and bothered, worked up and in the act, then stop immediately short of orgasm and meditate. One is to take the accumulated tension and channel it into your meditation. (have not tried this myself)
that didn't work for Kobe.
"meditate" so that's what you call it in India.
I don't know tim,
when I lived in Fresno, I had sex all the time. Now that I live here I don't have sex at all, and I'm prolly twice as good! I think every one should stop haveing sex!
what happended to all the studies in the 70s which indicate people actually perform better in sports the day after?
Those people got older and wrinkley- who wants to know about the performance of old wrinkley people doing sports the day after knockin' boots and bumpin' ugly?
I mean seriously, an 20 year old guy who could do a 2 minute mile in 1974 would be, like, 85 years old now.
the math is ireffutable
Hmmm! Bob #2 your comment was truly stated. However, it IS NOT a statement of truth.
I was only 23 in 1974 and I'm only 52 now. Guess time must've forgotten 'bout me.
