Astonishingly, Bing AI did a creditable, if incomplete, job of executing the command: “List all the spiritual schools that taught non-orgasmic sex”.

Karezza made the list, with some errors. Noyes didn’t invent the term and only male orgasm was discouraged at his Oneida community, while female orgasm was perfectly acceptable.

“Karezza” was in fact coined by gynecologist and author Alice B Stockham MD in a book she wrote in 1896, and was taken from the Italian word for caress. She advised both partners to make love without “reaching the crisis.”
