Higher consciousness and sexual sublimation (diverting sexual energy to the brain) are inextricably linked in most of the world's meditation methods. So where does seminal retention fit in? Seminal retention techniques can be used by male practitioners who want to continue sexual relations without the deleterious effects linked to ejaculating.
While best meditation practices dictate renouncing ejaculation and sexual relations, seminal retention techniques do provide a compromise for males not able or not willing to give up sex.
In the East, people have always known about the connection between higher consciousness and what goes on below the waist. Seminal Retention and Higher Consciousness: The Sexology of Kundalini explores this connection, and its sexological implications.
First, there's a limited amount of semen in the male body. Neither you, nor I, can change this; it's a biological fact. Second, although you can't replenish what's been lost, you can conserve what's left.
Today, it's understandable that young, vital individuals working on kundalini activation techniques want to maintain a normal sex life. Formerly, the only way to avoid the deleterious physiological effects linked to ejaculation was to avoid sex altogether after activating kundalini. That is not acceptable to this generation: The sex drive is too powerful to simply put it on the back burner in favor of abstinence or abstention. Today's seekers want instant gratification, free license to ejaculate at will, at the same time, they pursue higher consciousness.
Fortunately, there is a way to reconcile the two, a series of seminal retention techniques I discovered after activating kundalini. But before revealing these secret techniques, let's examine some of the effects various authorities on kundalini had to deal with.
