Lao TzuFor thousands of years, around the globe, spiritual teachers have taught that sex without orgasm improves harmony between mates, reduces cravings, increases wellbeing, and heightens spiritual awareness. Ancient Taoist master Lao Tzu taught this practice as "angelic dual cultivation." Jesus called it "the sacrament of the bridal chamber." Ninteenth-century American gynecologist Alice Bunker Stockham, MD christened it "Karezza." Fainter echoes survived in Tantric traditions, Chinese sexology treatises, Sufi writings, Jewish mysticism, and even in the courtly love literature of the Middle Ages.
