For Men: The Art Of Making Love Without Losing  Seed

This is a course for men taken from the Taoist belief that if a man pays close attention to his diet, exercising and sexual discipline then he will live a long and healthy life. It involves the art of ejaculation control to the extent that the ejaculation frequency should be twice a month… 24 times a year for health and longevity attainment and the rest of the time you retain semen during love-making with your partner. The retention of semen also keeps the male sexual interest up and does not take away his sexual drive. so Romeo can play Romeo way in to the night and Juliet can see a lot more action than maybe perhaps she is used to. It is said that frequent intercourse with infrequent ejaculation maintains a mans interest and the capacity for him to continue until his partner is fully satisfied”. Ladies send your man on this course now and you won’t be able to keep him off of you or did you prefer it when he just rolled over and went to sleep… I will leave that one with you.

All the subjects listed above Tai Chi, Yoga and Meditation, Reiki, Chi Kung, Tantric and Taoist course for men are all available in Chiang Mai at the Body & Mind Healing Centre.   Contact: Mr Rodinos Savvides  E.Mail: 


Besides all of the courses that Rod runs at body and mind healing he also gives very in-depth Astrology reports that can be ordered and downloaded from his website. He delivers both Personal readings looking at your own life and compatibility readings that inform you of whether you and your partner are compatible. On the personal readings the report is a 30 plus page dossier with a lot of work put in to them. I can highly recommend him as I have had a personal reading myself and referred two other clients to him. The readings are back with you in 24-48 hours and really in-depth. We all found the reports right on the money.
