Common steps and sub-activities
Ninpo full body stimulation
It should be clear that it is impossible for anyone to massage their feet and legs, and their penis and their perineum and contract their anus and massage their back where the energy goes up all at the same time.
You need help.
The Ninpo techniques require a lot of manipulation of the body – far more than the person is capable of achieving just with their two hands. For this reason, it is very common to find pictures with several people in them – all clothed except for the potential spiritual experiencer – performing various acts of manipulation.
There is ample evidence of this in the pictures, we see mixed and same sex masturbation of the man. Notice below for example that the men and women are all clothed, this is not strictly speaking love making this is ‘manipulation’ in the nicest sense of the word. This picture is from 1680….
Notice the manipulation of the legs –this is to get the energy flowing up the legs from the feet.
Dr Masaaki Hatsumi - The Way of the Ninja – Secret techniques.
A Zen parable states that ‘enlightenment lies under your feet’ while there is also a proverb that teaches how having a cool head but warm feet is important for maintaining one’s health. Oriental medicine asserts that there are fifty points on the feet, each connected to a different part of the body and that the six energising routes – the six meridians – of the spleen, stomach, bladder, kidneys, liver and gall bladder all pass through the feet. This all conveys the sense that it is important to keep one’s feet warm and stimulate them correctly.
It is also clear from the paintings of the time, that men helping men was – probably still is – quite common. Homosexual love and relationships were never an issue with the Japanese or most of the far eastern cultures, as such there is no reason why these shouldn’t be used by men with men.
