The seven minuses are as follows.

When intercourse is painful, that is called inner shutting.

Heavy perspiration and premature ejaculation during intercourse are referred to as external leaking.

Hyperactivity means exhaustion.

Inability in spite of desire is called impotence.

Doing it breathlessly and inwardly out of control is called emotional disturbance.

Forcing it when there is no desire means alienation.

Doing it too fast means waste.

These are called the seven minuses.

Therefore, if you skillfully employ the eight pluses and eliminate the seven minuses, your eyes and ears will be bright and clear, your body will be light and nimble, your sexual energy will grow stronger and stronger, you will extend your years, increasing your life span, and will live in lasting happiness.
