A forum member shared this audio file of Watts discussing his take on karezza and Chinese sexual practices. From the person who sent the link:

Husband: “Kindly instruct me as to how many times a man may have copulation with his wife.”

Socrates: “Only once in his life.”

Husband: “But if that fails to satisfy him?”

Socrates: “Then he can have copulation once a year.”

Husband: “But if that too doesn’t satisfy him?”

Socrates: “Then let it be once a month.”

Husband: “And if he is still not satisfied?”

Socrates: “Then let it be twice a month, but this will cause an early death.”

Sometimes in a relationship, sex can get a little stale.

It’s perfectly normal, but as a sex writer the number one question I get asked is ‘how do I get those first time feelings back?’ The honest truth is that you can’t. There’s no way of making things totally new again. But there are plenty of ways of making them deeper, more passionate and more exciting than ever before. And isn’t that just as good?
