In the Taoist tradition, our emotions — both the positive and negative ones — are associated with the condition of our internal organs. For instance, the kidneys, the liver, the lungs, the stomach, and prostate are thought to have specific correlations and effects on our emotional i.e. psychological well-being, and vice versa.
The prostate then (that is, the prostate gland and surrounding area) is considered the storage center of a man’s sexual emotions, and as such Prostate Massage plays an important role in promoting men’s general sexual health, notably in a psychological and spiritual sense.
In Taoism, it’s thought that sexual trauma and other negative sexual experiences leave their “imprint” on the prostate, which may inhibit a healthy prostate function, but also a healthy sexual life. Therefore, Prostate Massage is seen as a technique that releases associated tensions in order to digest and expulse traumatic or disturbing sexual emotions that have become “attached” to the prostate.
Prostate Massage treatments in the Taoist Sexual Practices also aim at physical prostate health, that is, tackling existing prostate health conditions such as prostatic inflammations (Prostatitis) or Benign Prostate Enlargement, but also the prevention of possible prostate issues.
Mind that physical prostate health is important because issues with the prostate usually affect men’s sexual and emotional health, leading to stress, anxiety, depression, and low libido, which again can cause Erectile Dysfunction (ED) or other orgasmic disorders.
Additionally, it’s thought that Prostate Massage can also alleviate or cure certain existing male sexual issues, such as aforementioned Erectile Dysfunction (ED), but also Premature Ejaculation (PE), infertility, and low libido.
Another aspect is that Taoist practitioners and therapists consider sexual pleasure as something worthwhile and desirable — not something that should be suppressed — and a means to becoming a more healthy emotional being. In that sense, Prostate Massage can become a vehicle for Full Body Orgasms and Multi-Orgasmic work.
On a “deeper level” work with the prostate and semen also aims at cultivating, redirecting, and transforming Qi Life Force for both physical and spiritual benefits, typically a practice within Taoist Sexual Alchemy.
