From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Sexual sublimation, also known as sexual transmutation, is the attempt among some religious traditions to transform sexual energy into creativity, thereby facilitating a mystical awakening.

In psychology, sublimation is the transference of sexual energy, or libido, into a physical act or a different emotion in order to avoid confrontation with the sexual urge. It is based on the belief that sexual energy, the creative function of the human being, can be used to create a spiritual nature instead of being let out in hopes of creating physically or sensually.[1][2][3]

The term itself means to transform the crude sexual energy into a carrier of spiritual essence. Different schools that describe this energy as vital energy, vital winds (prana), spiritual energy, ojas, shakti, tummo, or kundalini.[4][5][6]
