Sex in China pp Cite as. The concept of Yin-Yang is essentially simple, yet its influence on Chinese culture has been extensive. There is no aspect of Chinese civilization—including philosophy, medicine, sexology, politics, government, literature, and art—that has not been touched by this simple, powerful idea.

One of the keys to a happy sex life in Chinese medicine is the ability to balance and connect. The ancient Taoists believed that every relationship is a complex balancing act, namely balancing yin and yang. Yin in Chinese medicine refers to all those aspects of the body that are moistening and cooling. Yin is what makes you want to receive sexual energy from another person and yang is what makes you want to initiate sex with your partner. People with too little yang are often too tired to want to have sex. So, good sex means not just working on your partnership but also working on yourself and your own balance of yin and yang.

This is the time of the fire element, when you can fan the flames of your love and spread this to your partner. However, TCM is nothing if not practical, and successful relationships are about much more than the heart. A healthy sex life is considered essential as well, and this means a compatible sex drive is important.
