For some how, I didn’t masturbate for 5 days. I am practicing qi gong, kung fu, and meditation. In school, I started to have bad luck. I don’t know why. I just don’t know why. I failed to remember a math quiz. Forgot to bring in my homework. I can’t understand what is going on in biology class. I feel getting dumber. Does this has to do with masturbating? So I SHOULD masturbate then? I afraid it interfere with the kung fu since Chinese people said energy is gone from the body. I don’t know what to do. I am a boy who is 14 years old in high school as a freshmen.
This is what Taoism said about masturbating:
Some teachers and practitioners of Traditional Chinese medicine, Taoist meditative and martial arts say that masturbation can cause a lowered energy level in men. They say that ejaculation in this way reduces “origin qi” from dantian, the energy center located in the lower abdomen. Some maintain that sex with a partner does not do this because the partners replenish each other’s qi. Some practitioners therefore say that males should not practice martial arts for at least 48 hours after masturbation while others prescribe up to six months, because the loss of Origin Qi does not allow new qi to be created for this kind of time. Taoists strongly discouraged female masturbation. Women were encouraged to practice massaging techniques upon themselves, but were also instructed to avoid thinking sexual thoughts if experiencing a feeling of pleasure. Otherwise, the woman’s “labia will open wide and the sexual secretions will flow.” If this happened, the woman would lose part of her life force, and this could bring illness and shortened life.[
