Sex magic or sexual magic is a term for various types of sexual activity used in magical, theurgical, or otherwise religious and spiritual pursuits. In short, sexual magic is the application of the energy of sexual arousal and/or orgasm, impressed with the strongly visualized image of a desired result, into the sphere of causal energy, with the hope of producing a desired change in the realm of manifestation.

The fundamental premise of sex magic is the concept that the sexual energy, or libido, of the human organism is the most potent force it contains, and harnessing the unique states that arise through sexual activity provides a special experiential conduit for the transcendence of nominal reality.

Two fundamental applications of sexual magic concern the use of the orgasm. Some schools of thought base their use of sex upon the power that the orgasmic release of the sexual energy contains. An example of this type of sex magic is the Great Rite of Wicca, a ritual that involves either symbolic or actual sexual intercourse. This union between the High Priestess and the High Priest represents the union between the Maiden Goddess and the Lover God.
