Taoist Alchemy

Gokkun (semen drinking)Traditional Chinese alchemy is based on the Way of Tao, which views the whole Cosmos in terms of the subtle energy known as Qi. The particular form of Qi responsible for long life and healthy wellbeing is called Jing, which is found in its most concentrated form in semen. As a consequence, certain rituals associated with Taoist alchemy centre around the consumption of large quantities of semen. The Japanese practice of Gokkun, in which a woman collects the semen from a number of males in a glass and then proceeds to drink it, has its origins in one such ritual – although it is nowadays chiefly associated with the pornographic industry.
