Western medical science focuses on human sexuality in terms of anatomy, physiology and psychology. In Eastern cultures, sex is regarded as an art, science, and a path to a spiritual development, a path towards greater intimacy not only with the partner but also with the Divine Self.
Those who understand the nature of sex will nurture their vigor and prolong their life. Those who treat its principle with contempt will injure their spirit and shorten their life. - Tung Hsuan Tzu
