yinyangTaoism is an ancient Chinese tradition that centers around the concept of Yin and Yang, or the interplay of female and male principles.

The female principle Yin is symbolized by the vagina, while the male principle Yang is symbolized by the penis. But Taoists rarely use such mundane anatomical words, preferring colorful poetic phrases instead:

  • The vagina = Jade Gate, Vermilion Gate, Jade Pavilion, Golden Lotus, Peony Blossom, Receptive Vase.
  • The penis = Jade Stem, Coral Stem, Male Stalk, Turtle Head, Red Bird, Dragon Pillar.
