Rudolf von Urban studied at the Vienna Theresianum, graduating in 1898 and, early in his career, worked as assistant to the internist Carl von Noorden.
With Noorden"s support he opened the prestigious Wiener Cottage Sanatorium as a clinic for the aristocracy in 1908. Fleeing political conditions he moved to Los Angeles, California, in 1936. He wrote the book Sex Perfection and Marital Happiness (DIAL PRESS, Incorporated New York 1949).
His work describes a type of bio-energetic flow of energy that is possible between couples when orgasm is avoided and sexual intercourse is prolonged.
The findings of his research indicate that improved over-all health and well-being are a result of engaging in "Sex Perfection".
