One can be enlightened at any moment, in fact there is always
enlightenment, its just a matter of realizing it, of admitting it. As
I indicated in my previous response to you sexual energy is certainly
chi and sex can certainly intensify one's chi. While orgasms are
certainly beneficial on their own, even better is to use the sexual
chi to purify the entire being by moving it through the energy body
using techniques such as Tantra teach.
I'm glad you have brought up the subject of sex here as many Zen
practitioners are rather prudish about sex. That is one major
criticism I have of most Zen teaching which originates with the whole
idea of celibate monks and nuns trying to ignore a natural part of
their being. Most Zen sects consider sex a distraction at best, and
for many it borders on the sinful. True Zen makes no such judgments
however and accepts sex as part of life just like anything else, and
uses it like everything else on the path to enlightenment.

Does orgasm count as a moment of enlightenment?
