Episode Highlights with Kate Strakosch

  • Lingam is Sanskrit for penis, and translates to “wand of light,” “wand of power,” “wand of vitality.”

  • Ancient African and Eastern (Chinese) traditions use steaming of herbs below the genitalia

  • The only difference between yoni and lingam steaming is that the man will drape a towel over his lingam during the ritual.

  • Lingam steaming is beneficial for prostate health, circulation and lymphatic health.

  • The steam also enters the anus which offers digestive support, pain relief from hip and back pain, and overall pelvic relaxation.

  • Lingam steaming can also be profoundly healing for previous sexual trauma

  • Calendula and yarrow are two wonderful anti-inflammatory herbs to use with steaming or soaking.

  • The prostate is to the man’s body what the cervix is to the woman’s body.

  • In the realm of sexuality, if the man (or woman,) does not feel safe, the parasympathetic nervous system is not activated.

  • Sacred sexuality is not about performance or orgasm, but more about body awareness, experiencing pleasure, and being present.

  • Couples steaming is a wonderful way to connect with your partner, or re-connect, or even honor a separation.

  • Chinese medicine believes in scaling back in ejaculating with orgasm - that vital energy is expelled with ejaculating and can cause a depletion in energy. Some traditional practices advocate for no ejaculation, some advocate only with the moon cycle, and others say just to have fewer ejaculatory orgasms (which is possible with practice.)  Retaining the semen creates a microcosm orbit according to Traditional Chinese Medicine.
