I discovered about Karezza today. I am extremely excited about it all!
Karezza is about love, about having a loving relationship but without orgasms! Karezza can of course be practiced with another person, but can also be done with a pet, a wild animal, tree or plant, and even with our own self. It is mostly about "sending"/creating/feeling love which can manifest in infinite ways including sexual activity but always without any potentially destructive behaviors such as orgasms.
The love sensation has to do with a substance in the brain called oxytocin which triggers the brain reward system - creates pleasure. Dopamine is the other brain substance that triggers the brain reward system - creates pleasure. Dopamine is released in many different "survival" exciting circomstances, such as arguing/fighting, extreme exercise, cooked/dense/stimulant food, drugs, etc. and last but not least orgasms. Oxytocin is sustainable and healthy, but dopamine is unsustainable and unhealthy because dopamine increases the treshold of amount of pleasure substance required to feel good which is the addictive pattern of any damaging behavior.
Orgasm significantly increases the dopamine threshold for the same amount of well-being in the brain reward-system. Heroin does the very same, a heroin high is similar in intensity to that of an orgasm according to scientific brain imagery observation, but since the high of an orgasm lasts much shorter than the one of a heroin trip the damage is much greater for heroin. Still, force is to recognize that orgasms do significant temporal damage to the brain!
This damage isn't unique to the brain in the case of men, as the production of sperm and spermatozoids require a great deal of energy and essential minerals such as zinc, magnesium and calcium. The speed of production of sperm and of spermatozoids depends largely on the amounts available, and of course an ejaculation - external, or internal as in taoist sexual practices or vasectomy (partial) - depletes the reserves. The release of sperm should be only during a moment of desired procreation.
The build up of energy before an orgasm and its "explosive" release damages the body. This is why breathing and relaxing are keys in times of sexual desire rises which literally allow for energy flowing inside the body, just like in all other circumstances where addictive cravings arise where deep breathing is essential to allow for acceptance and dealing with the situation constructively.
Orgasms are avoided in my life from now on. This has wonderful health promises while still permitting for extremely wonderful romantic love relationships involving Karezza.
