The Million Dollar Point Danger – The Multi-Orgasmic Man by Mantak Chia

by Million Dollar Point, Taoist Tantra

This article serves to caution men who are starting on their neo-tantric path. It aids to avoid health issues caused by the practice of the
million dollar point technique. If you are someone who practices sacred sexuality, please read this.

For the longest time, I would manually stop myself from ejaculating. How? By employing the million dollar point method. Doing this resulted in pain, weak erections, and a feeling of congestion in the pelvic floor.

I wish I had someone more advanced than me to help me when I started. Today, I will break down on why you should never use this practice and why it is dangerous.

What Is The Million-Dollar Point?

The Million Dollar Point is a small spot located between the scrotum and anus, at the level of the perineum.

In sexual Taoism, the “3 finger lock” is used to forcefully suppress an ejaculation that has already crossed the point of testicular release. Also known as, the point of no return.

Origins of the Million Dollar Point

This technique was first introduced to the western world by Mantak Chia.

He mentions it in his book “Cultivating Male Sexual Energy” and “The Multi-Orgasmic Man“, both co-authored by Michael Winn.

Winn later expressed regret including this technique in his book. He now strongly warns against it:


So why am I writing about this? I want to dispel the myth that you have to practice this method to achieve ejaculation control and multiple orgasms.

This practice is one of the first things men do when first starting on the path of Tantra and sacred sexuality. However, this is one of those techniques that cause more harm than good.

The Hidden Side-Effects of Pressing The Million Dollar Point

As of matter of fact, I know many men who have received the total opposite in terms of the results they were hoping for.  

Instead of increasing sexual abilities, they were met with:

  • erectile dysfunction,
  • prostate health issues,
  • pelvic floor pain,
  • blue balls,
  • and epididymal cysts.

The Truth of What Really Happens When Pressing on The Million Dollar Point


What you are essentially doing is using external force to stop ejaculation. Let’s think of sexual mastery as climbing a mountain. Learning the skills necessary to sublime and transmute your sexual energy is what lies at the top of the mountain

The MDP method is like taking a helicopter to the top of the mountain, and then exclaiming: “I did it! I’ve achieved ejaculation control. I’m at the top!”

While you might think you are a master in ejaculation control, in reality, you’re just cheating. Pressing on the MDP is taking the easier way out – you skip over learning the necessary skills for real sexual mastery. This comes as no surprise – everyone today wants the quick fix magic pill.

Applying external force to stop ejaculation and reduce pleasure is an aggressive self-harming act. You are in no way benefiting your body or sexuality.

The Million Dollar Point Does Not Move Sexual Energy


Pressing on the MDP does not sublime the Ojas – the sexual energy, which is the most important part of the tantric sexual practice.

But instead, the energy is suppressed in the genital area, causing energetic havoc. This leads to congestion in the genital area and causes adverse physical and energy effects.

If you’ve somehow done this recently or by accident, it is crucial that you massage the perineum and testicles afterward. This helps to relieve congestion.

In order to really dissipate trapped energy from the pelvic floor, I recommend doing at least 30 min of tantric energy practices. This helps move energy up towards your higher chakras. These practices are far more effective and safer than the MDP technique.

When working on transmuting sexual energy, you are never brought to the point of ejaculation. In this regard, there is no need to press the million dollar point. Therefore, working with sexual energy is superior practice.

Subliming your sexual energy will increase your spiritual evolution. On the other hand, using the Million-Dollar Point method will simply delude you into thinking you are succeeding in sexual mastery. In reality, however, it only decreases your sexual skills.


Retrograde Ejaculation


Think about what happens when you actually perform the MDP method. The semen that has been suppressed by pressing the point has already been released from the testicles. Since you do not actually ejaculate, the semen has to go somewhere. So where does it go?

It goes into the bladder instead and comes out with urine the next time you pee. This is what is known as retrograde ejaculation. If you were to pee into a transparent glass after performing the MDP method, you will notice your urine is murky rather than clear. This is due to the seminal fluids floating around inside of it. Try it out yourself and you will be amazed at the results!

With retrograde ejaculation, you still lose your sexual superpower.


Subtle Tantric Anatomy


We have to understand the subtle anatomy to understand this on a deeper level. The Ojas energy is not only physically in the semen, but it’s also in the energy accompanying semen. This means it can be lost even without ejaculation.

Ojas is the vital energy that sustains life itself, without this energy you will drop dead. It has both a physical and energetic component and exists on more than one plane. That’s why there are two ways to interpret sexual union in Tantra.

The first is to see it on a gross level, as penetrative intercourse (PIV). Or as using sexual fluids in tantric rituals, by mixing the semen with menstrual blood.

But another way to interpret it is on a refined level, as a symbolic union of the inner energies. A union between the duality of the two polarities, uniting as one. 

The yin with the yang, and Shiva with Shakti. Or as the rising of the Kundalini power at the root, uniting with consciousness at the crown. That’s the inner lovemaking which can be symbolically illustrated by sexual union. The famous of Yab Yum is a great example of this. 


That’s something that can take place within yourself – no partner needed. 


Vasectomy Does Not Help Explosive Orgasms


Since sexual energy is not only contained in the semen, men with vasectomy still need to learn how to transmute sexual energy.

During a vasectomy, the ‘vas deferens’ tubes are cut, essentially keeping sperm out from the semen. Thus making it impossible to fertilize an egg.

This procedure might seem like another quick fix to avoid learning how to manage sexual energy, but’s it’s just another dream for the lazy man. If you have an explosive orgasm you still lose Ojas on an energetic level, like everyone else.

(There are other reasons for getting a vasectomy, which is not covered here.)


Avoid Pitfalls With The Right Guidance


If there is one thing I want you to take away from this article, it is – be proactive. I want you to understand that practicing tantric sexuality on your own without proper guidance can be dangerous. Reading a random book simply is not enough. Always seek competent guidance when first starting your journey.

I advise you to seek guidance from a male teacher who has already achieved the level of mastery that you would like to achieve. Being around someone that has accomplished a skill can help speed up your journey. It works through the law of resonance and transmission.


I hope you’ve found this article useful and are now wary of the Million Dollar Point practice. Or better yet, have decided never to do it again.
