Why there are so many"techniques" about sex in Taoism?

Unlike any other Chinese ancient philosophy, Taoism teaches many techniques about sexual practice. By my understanding, this is because Taoism focuses mostly on human's physical health. Ok, don't get me wrong, it is not that Taoists don't care about spiritual matter, but they believe that physical health is the fundation of our mental health.
Well, did Lao zhi really said that? I am not sure... but this is how I understand Tao.
By the way, I am personally not so crazy about this part of Taoism. I think if you exercise often and eat well, you will have awesome sex!
