Historically there is a long history of discussions of sex and sexual
energy associated with Zen, Tao, Tibetan Buddhism and Tantra all have
their particular takes on the matter. The basic idea is that the
sexual energy is one of the primary sources where chi enters one's
body. At that point the idea is to use specific techniques to
distribute that energy within one's energy centers and one's whole
being to refresh it and make it strong and healthy, and enlightened
rather than just immediately expending the sexual energy outward from
its source. Tantra in particular advocates a man and a woman working
together to do this. The idea is that they sexually join not with the
goal of quick orgasm but with the goal of mutually stimulating and
increasing the genital chi and then working together to distribute
that through their chakras and entire bodies. The idea is that
naturally a man and woman together can generate and move a lot more
good energy than either alone.
In the past I've used this technique extensively and found it
extremely effective and health inducing and an excellent technique on
the path to enlightenment.

When I was very sexually active, I felt life-power in sex. I think
that is CHI, or is that like addiction? There is manic energy that
came from sex and also from drugs. Is that Chi?
