Research on BCIs began in the 1970s at the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) under a grant from the National Science Foundation , followed by a contract from DARPA .

Coitus reservatus ( coitus , "sexual intercourse, union" + reservatus , "reserved, saved"), [ 1 ] also known as sexual continence , is commonly thought of as a form of sexual intercourse in which the penetrative partner does not attempt to ejaculate within the receptive partner, but instead attempts to remain at the plateau phase of intercourse for as long as possible avoiding the seminal emission. Another term used for this kind of relationship is the word karezza . According to its creator, Dr. Alice Bunker Stockham, the word karezza is derived from the Italian word "carezza" meaning "caress". However, Alan W. Watts believed, in error, that it was a Persian word. [ 2 ] The concept of karezza is loosely akin to maithuna in Hindu Tantra and Sahaja in Hindu Yoga . [ 3 ]
