Ni ajabu lakini kweli! Siku zote twaambiwa wanaume huishi miaka kidogo ukilinganisha na wanawake. Sababu zinazotolewa huwa za kawaida - ajali zaidi, kuhangaika zaidi, nk. Pia tunaambiwa wanawake wana akiba zaidi kwenye miili yao - minyama na mafuta. Kumbe kuna zaidi ya hii! Wanaume wao hujimaliza wenyewe kwa tamaa zao. Kitendo cha kumwaga manii kumbe huwapunguzia miaka kwenye maisha yao. Kadri unavyojifanya kijogoo kwenda raundi kadhaa, ndivyo unakata miaka kadhaa kwenye maisha yako. Someni hii kama mnabisha: On December 3, 1992, the New York Times reported startling scientific research that seems to confirm the ancient Taoist insight about the toll that sperm production takes on a man's body The new work suggests that ceaseless sperm production takes its toll on a male, perhaps requiring the use of complex enzymes or biochemical processes that have harmful metabolic byproducts." The Times goes so far as to suggest that "the difference in life span between men and women just may be linked to sperm production. Women on average live about six years longer than men." There are other theories to explain the disparity in life expectancy between men and women, including differences in lifestyle and in hormones. Whether or not the production of sperm actually shortens your life, it certainly saps your strength.Over two thousand years ago – long before experiments on human sexuality– the Taoists described the importance of not ejaculating in the Discourse on the Highes Tao Under Heaven: "If a man has intercourse without spilling his seed, his vital essence is strengthened. If he does this twice, his hearing and vision are made clear. If three times, all his physical illness will disappear. The fourth time he will begin to feel inner peace. The fifth time his blood will circulate powerfully. The sixth time his genitals will gain new prowess. By the seventh his thighs and buttocks will become firm. The eighth time his body will radiate good health. The ninth time his life span will be increased." Kazi kwenu!
