What is Semen Retention?

Semen retention is the practice of separating orgasm from ejaculation.

Ancient philosophies and medical practices from Asia and India have long claimed that semen retention leads to better health and longer life.

Semen, which is in essence the very life-force of a man, must be retained in the body to maintain a man’s health.

Ejaculation reduces the life-force available to a man, which is evident from the immediate drop in energy and generally depressed nature, which can be observed after ejaculating.

Semen is a complex mixture of calcium, phosphorus, lecithin, cholesterol, albumin,and nucleoproteins.

When it is retained, it is re-absorbed into the body where it is used to directly support the brain and central nervous system.

This improves their function, making you more focused and confident.

Sexual energy created during arousal must also be transmuted to take full advantage of semen retention.

Transmutation allows sexual energy to be used for the benefit of a man and not released in such a way as to harm him.

Techniques that have been used to transmute sexual energy include pranayama, meditation, mantra, and the Tibetan 5 Element Healing Practices.

Physical activities, such as exercise, are also useful ways to transmute sexual energy.

What are the benefits of semen retention?

There are many benefits to semen retention for physical health, mental health and spiritual awareness.

Some of the more common ones include:


increased energy and drive

boosted immune system

cures erectile dysfunction

prevents premature ejaculation


more confidence

improved memory

more decisive


calmer and less prone to anger

more connected to spiritual nature

control over material urges

How is semen retention practiced?

The benefits of semen retention can not be achieved by being celibate and avoiding all sexual activity.

The full benefits can only be attained by experiencing sexual arousal, without ejaculation.

Sun Simiao, a Chinese doctor and philosopher, said that a man could receive the benefits of semen retention and still experience ejaculation twice per month.

Some branches of Tibetan Buddhism use semen retention techniques as a tool in discovering deeper states of emptiness and bliss.

To aid in recovery after ejaculation, exercise and a diet high in zinc are recommended.

Why practice semen retention?

Semen retention improves your sex life.

Frequent sexual arousal, without ejaculation, builds stamina and self-control. Self-control that allows you to last as long as necessary.

Men that do not practice semen retention will usually last two to seven minutes before ejaculating, leaving the woman less than satisfied.

Sexual gratification usually takes longer for a woman to achieve, so women need a man that can last as long as she can.

If a man is able to maintain sexual arousal for as long as he desires, it not only allows the woman to reach climax, it heightens the expectation of more climaxes to come. In the end, a longer lasting you will make a happier her.❤
