Your organ merely an organelle? Try Penis Qi-Gong

This blog comments on the weird stuff pouring out of Asia:

We know that this sounds like a gag, but as far as we can tell, it is completely on the up and up. Tu Jin-Sheng is a noted master of Qigong and Chinese medicine who graduated from the prestigious Teachers Physical College of Taiwan with a degree in martial arts and also earned his master's in Traditional Chinese Medicine. From an article in Kungfu Magazine:

As Tu sees it, people train every other part of their body except their sexual organs. He considers his method as the only way to correct this oversight. While most people think the only exercise a penis gets is ejaculation, Tu's method treats the penis like an arm, a leg or any other part of the body. Tu comments "People compete will all their four limbs, why not this?"

As one might imagine, this is a very delicate practice, so it is of utmost importance that a student follow the direction of a qualified master. Penis qigong uses a variety of special exercises, including massage, slapping, pulling and hitting it with a tool.

Frankly, my dangling participle already has enough power over my life: do I really want to make it even more powerful? No, I think I'll have to take a pass on anything that involves banging on my very own shiva-lingam with a tool harder than it is.

Actually, when they did the truck pull, it got international coverage on par with the exploding whale. I had relatives and friends writing me about this. All this must be great for Taiwan's international image -- right? Whales, political riots, penis qi-gong; maybe the Taiwan Tourism Bureau can promote this as an attraction.
