Practitioners of this believe that by applying stimulation to nerve endings in the foot, this will energise related organs. As previously mentioned, there are similar nerve endings or reflexology zones in the penis and vagina. The Sets of Nine is a Taoist exercise designed to massage these genital reflexology zones evenly and thus to benefit the rest of the body. Many men may find it difficult to go the whole Set of Nine without ejaculating, and Taoist instructors encourage their pupils not to lose heart if this happens, saying that even part of the exercise is beneficial to the internal organs and that if they continue to practise comfortably, at their own pace, it will become easier to complete one Set of Nine.
Serious students should aim at many further sets. Perhaps the most important preliminary for intercourse which will hopefully last a long time is that you should feel comfortable while doing it.
To this end, decide on the most easeful place such as a bed and ensure there will be no interruptions. Take the phone off the hook, warn friends or family, lock the door and ensure that anything you may need, such a box of Kotex, is within reach. The key activity for the immediate period of time is thrusting and this is thrusting done with a certain amount of bodily control. The Sets of Nine are therefore best carried out from a man-on-top position.
The following ninety deep and shallow strokes need to be done in order: He thrusts only the penis head into the vagina before withdrawing. He does this shallow stroke nine times, and then he thrusts the entire penis into the vagina once. He follows this up with eight of the shallow strokes with the penis head only and two deep strokes with the entire penis.
Next, he makes seven shallow strokes and three deep ones. Six shallow strokes and four deep ones. Five shallow strokes and five deep ones. Four shallow strokes and six deep ones. Three shallow strokes and seven deep ones.
Two shallow strokes and eight deep ones. Finally, he makes one shallow stroke followed by nine deep ones. Devotees of energy storage may want to carry out further sets but, a word of advice. Check out with your partner first that she really wants this. Thrusting for the sake of thrusting may be for higher purposes but it can also be too much of a good thing. Use your common sense!
