Now, let’s have a look at what the Dalai Lama taught:

Dalai Lama: Sex and Kalachakra
Advice for Keeping the Vows and Beginning Kalachakra Practice
The Vow Not to Lose Seminal Energy-Drops
Whatever terms used by Tibetan sexual practices, including highest yoga tantra, guru yoga, Guthyasamaja, dual operation of bliss and emptiness, kundalini (inner heat 拙火), and semen retention, etc. all belong to worldly kong-fu 功夫or martial arts. These practices have nothing to do with Buddhist cultivation of attaining liberation or enlightenment.
We can check (2) by using the correct understanding of (1).
For instance, the practice of “semen retention.”
The Dalai Lama wrote in his book Sleeping, Dreaming and Dying
“In both ordinary sexual intercourse and in the sexual union practiced by advanced Tantric practitioners, the regenerative fluids move to the point of the genitals. The difference between the two types of sexual act is the control of the flow of regenerative fluids.”
Therefore, experienced Tantric practitioners are able to reverse the flow of regenerative fluids, even when they have reached the tip of the genitals and are on the verge of being released.
This practice requires the interactions of all five aggregates, the form-aggregate, formation-aggregate, perception-aggregate, sensation-aggregate and the vijnana-aggregate, which all fall within the scope of the phenomenal world.
From (3) we can see that the sexual practice belongs to the worldly arising and ceasing dharms, and one does not attain any Buddhist wisdom by utilizing the five aggregates. Besides, the practitioners do not even realize the fact that they are just having sex with a euphemistic term; especially for those female partners.
Without correct understanding of the Buddha dharma, the tantric practitioners truly believe that they are able to achieve liberation or enlightenment via assiduous exercises. They will pass on this “Buddhist” practice to sincere and willing adherents.
Any individual does not have to be a Buddhist to understand the five aggregates, if one gains some proper understanding of Buddhism, he/she will be able to distinguish correct Buddhist teachings from erroneous ones.
Where could we find the Buddhist wisdom to transcend the desire realm?
It starts with the correct understanding of the five aggregates, otherwise, the Buddhist cultivation cannot advance further, as we will hold on to all various states of our five aggregates and deem them to be the target of enlightenment. That’s why the first round of dharma transmission took the Buddha more than 10 years to establish fundamental knowledge for the disciples. (Part 2/end)
