If you want to apply the same driving force to your life goals as to getting laid, then you NEED to read this article about sexual transmutation, and how to channel your sexual energy.

Start watching the video and then continue reading:

No wall too high, no river too wide

Most men fuck away their precious life force energy for years without ONCE stopping to question what they’re doing… 

This is nothing more than just an outlet. An indulgence.

But if you’ve ever stopped to consider that there might be another, more worthwhile way – kudos to you! This already sets you apart from the majority of men. 

A man typically feels the desire to be with a woman sexually. So, he goes after her like there is no tomorrow. Men have moved mountains just to sleep with a woman. There is no wall too high and no river too wide that stops him from getting to his prized female.  

(Which shows just what human beings are capable of when we put our minds to something, right?)

But after a quick orgasmic sneeze, the desire is fulfilled. His life force energy is drained. And it’s back to the couch watching Netflix scrolling through Tinder for the next conquest.

The same goes for jerking off (unless it a conscious tantric masturbation). 

We want to cum. So we spend hours searching Pornhub for the perfect video. We jerk off for a few minutes, shoot our load, then our life force is drained. Sexual impulse vanishes, and it’s business as usual again. 

I’m not casting judgment here. This is how we have evolved to behave. However, it is a nasty addictive cycle. One that most men are trapped inside of.

There IS another way. A better outlet for your sexual energy – sexual transmutation. 

The meaning of sexual transmutation

The definition of sexual transmutation is transforming sexual energy into a refined force. 

To transmute means to convert one thing into another. Hence with sexual transmutation, sexual energy is not being used as it is – it’s being changed. One can learn to harness this precious energy for self-growth purposes. 

Think of sexual transmutation as transforming something inadequate into something more useful, such as: 

  • Turning lead into gold.
  • Turning carbon atoms into diamonds.
  • OR turning semen into energy.

Some may uncover powerful creative forces, whereas others feel more life force energy. 

However, this requires significant awareness and self-control over one’s libido through various techniques such as meditation and visualization.

Sexual transmutation vs sublimation

Sexual transmutation is NOT the sublimation of sexual energy. Both are related to each other, but they are different practices. 

The yogis use sublimation to raise sexual energy upwards. This involves going from the lower energy centers (like the root chakra or sacral chakra) to the higher ones (like the third eye chakra). It is one of the fundamental aims of yoga.

Sexual transmutation transforms energy

Sexual transmutation is different. With sexual transmutation, sexual energy is not being used as it is. 

Sexual energy is being changed. 

Transmuted, from something sexual to something more refined. 

This energy can then be used for different purposes. Some people uncover powerful creative forces via sexual transmutation. Others feel more life force energy. 


Boost your confidence, master your sexuality, and find your purpose.

So you can reignite the passion in your relationship or attract your perfect woman.

Top 6 benefits of sexual transmutation

Learn how to channel your sexual energy by transmuting it, and you’ll create your ideal life. 


Because sexual energy is the most potent life force on the planet with immense, unrivaled potential.

As hinted at by Napoleon Hill, sexual transmutation is the key to unlocking your TRUE creative potential.

“Everything that exists, does so because of sexual energy.”

Once you have mastered the art of sexual transmutation, you’ll achieve each of the benefits below. 

1. Unlock your true creative potential

Use sexual energy to enhance your creative abilities and efforts. Rather than being consumed by sexual desires, release that sexual energy through creative endeavors such as writing, music, and painting.

2. Improve physical energy and wellbeing 

Refining your sex energy into physical energy improves your overall well-being. This leads to an improvement in your physical expression as well as the healing of chronic fatigue and other illnesses associated with low physical energy levels.

In short, sexual transmutation brings about optimal physical health so that you have:

  • Spiritual energy.
  • Creative ability.
  • Financial prosperity.
  • Mental clarity.
  • Sexual expression.
  • Material success. 
  • And even your dream relationship.

3. Never act on impulse again

That burning desire to f*ck? No longer; sexual transmutation gives one the ability to stay focused on their mission by better controlling their impulsive urges. And therefore, you can make decisions without being influenced by your other head. 

4. Have more meaningful sex 

A casual sex life might feel good in the moment and for your ego, but there’s nothing more. 

It’s frivolous and only wastes your body’s energy. But intimate sex that builds your emotional connection with your partner is different. You’ll feel a heightened sense of sexual pleasure and fulfillment that casual sex couldn’t give you. 

5. Healthy relationship with work and money

Sexual transmutation leads to an inner transformation by being capable of using the body’s energy for meaningful purposes. And, this will reflect through other aspects of your life, including work and finance. 

6. Build your dream life

Each benefit above brings you to this ultimate result: building your dream life. 

Mastering the sexual energy transmutation techniques frees you from the mental prison of your lust. Creative energy will fill the space that was once controlled and dictated by your sexual desires. 

Use this new creative energy to build the business of your dreams. Or you could design a new home and craft beautiful pieces of art… the possibilities are endless. 

The world truly becomes your oyster when you commit to your goals with greater passion.

3 Myths that might be stopping you from transmuting your sexual energy

Some of these myths could be stopping you from committing to sexual energy practices. 

Sexual energy has the potential to ruin us when used for the wrong reasons. It’s compelling enough to trap us into staying mediocre by being slaves to our own sex drive. Greatness requires harnessing this powerful force. 

Only then will you attract your human desires and fulfill your deeper purpose. 

Myth 1: You must deny your sexual desires

Indeed, men often release their sexual energy through sexual pleasure. 

But sex transmutation isn’t about denying sexual desire – it’s about redirecting it elsewhere. And that requires acknowledging your own body’s needs. 

Myth 2: Sexual energy is solely for procreation

As mentioned earlier, there are other ways to use sexual energy. It’s a driving force that enables one to create their dream life by being purely focused on their goals.

Myth 3: Sexual transmutation is only for the chosen ones

No, everyone can do it. 

Having the ability to transmute such energy flowing through your body is a skill that comes with time. Though it does require lots of willpower and discipline, the rewards are priceless. 

Is abstinence necessary?

“Do I have to abstain from sex?!”

No… Kind of. You are learning how to channel sexual energy, not how to become a monk.

Make love as much as you want. Sexual energy transmutation doesn’t require you to give up sex. You just change your relationship to it. Particularly with how you experience an orgasm.

That said, ejaculatory orgasms are off the table. After all, it’s all about the energy behind the intention.

Joining the NoFap Movement

NoFap means to not beat (fap) your meat. In other words, abstaining from porn and masturbation.

Anything too much or too little is usually bad for you. The same goes for beating your meat – excessive ejaculation to porn leads to adverse effects such as:

  • Developing a porn addiction.
  • Lower self-esteem.
  • Reduced sensitivity to rewards.

Quite frankly, blasting your dopamine system rewires your brain. And not in a good way because you’ll be seeking constant stimulation. However, NoFap resets your brain by abstaining from these activities that use up a significant amount of dopamine. 

As you refrain from sexual acts, you’ll begin to distinguish between the voice of your rational mind and the deafening sound of your cock. The result? You make more informed decisions.

How to transmute your sexual energy: 8 best ways

Sexual transmutation is done by controlling your sexual desires. This isn’t the same as suppressing it and going against human nature. Transmuting your sexual energy is about redirecting that drive into other outlets. This is achievable by practicing a level of abstinence as well as meditative techniques and yoga. 

With that in mind, I’m going to do what Napoleon Hill didn’t do in Think and Grow Rich…

And that’s giving you the best ways to start practicing sexual transmutation today.

1. Semen retention is your basic foundation

Semen retention is basically when you keep away from ejaculating. Without semen retention, nothing else happens. This is your basic foundation for regaining your power and control. 

This concept will sound foreign to any man that’s been c*mming regularly throughout his life. 

Perhaps the idea of avoiding ejaculation seems insane, or impossible. But it is a practice that’s been around for millennia and even as long as tantra. 

When men ejaculate, they lose a great deal of their life force energy which ancients called ‘jing.’ To better explain this, do you remember when you had sex for the first time in a while? After shooting your load, you may have felt depleted and drained for a few days.

Or, on a less extreme level, it makes you want to roll over and fall right asleep after sex in the evening (women hate this, by the way). 

And the reason for this is that you used precious life force energy – sexual energy. 

Semen retention cultivates creative energy and creative potential

Hence you can cultivate huge amounts of physical and creative energy by consciously retaining your semen.

The energy slump that would usually drive you straight to the couch? Holding you back from stoking the fires of your dreams and goals? Well, that won’t be a problem anymore. This is what Napoleon Hill is really getting at in his book.

2. Inverted asana and tantra yoga

Once you can retain semen, you can start transmuting sexual energy. This is where tantra yoga for men and inverted asana comes in.

With sexual transmutation, we are moving energy away from the genitals and converting it into less dense energy. This is why inversions work really well.

A simple inversion to start with would be a headstand. If this is too advanced, try a shoulder stand or standing forward bend.

3. Nauli kriya (cleansing techniques)

Kriyas are traditional yogic practices used for cleansing. Nauli kriya, however, is used to change your vibrational state. It is also a potent mood booster. 

A few rounds of nauli kriya and you will be in a completely different mental space.

As such, nauli is an effective way of transmuting sexual energy.

Any time you are feeling bombarded by sexual desires, you can call upon nauli kriya to cleanse yourself of it. Not that sexual thoughts are anything dirty or to be ashamed of but for the purpose of this article, they are a distraction.

Nauli will help shift sexual desires, freeing up your precious mental space for higher purposes.

4. Cultivating energetic orgasms

Once you start semen retention and using sexual transmutation, you might feel a bit deprived. 

Despite being depleted, there is something about shooting our load that is just satisfying for us men. 

Well, indeed, there is. No sperm = no babies. 

Mother Nature had to ensure the survival of the species somehow. Therefore, she wired the brains of all men on Earth toward ejaculatory orgasms. That is how we make babies, after all. 

But you CAN override this and experience something even MORE pleasurable.


Unleash the secrets of your inner fire of willpower, harness your sacred sexual energy, and embody healthy masculine energy.

How to experience energetic orgasms

I have written an entire guide on how to experience energy orgasms here. I suggest you read it if you’re serious about sex transmutation.

Disclaimer: energetic orgasms do not give you the same feeling of release as ejaculatory orgasms. But they DO last much longer, and their ripples can be felt throughout the entire body.

An energetic orgasm shoots the energy up the spine and to the brain. They are not depleting like ejaculatory orgasms. You can also strengthen your connection to the subtle energy body by cultivating imploding orgasms. 

Energetic orgasms are incredible. You can have one after the other. And in doing so, become one of the few multi-orgasmic men.

5. Let go of addictions

Any addictive behavior blocks sexual transmutation. 

I’ve already mentioned indulgence a few times in this article, but it really does lie at the heart of this. 

The choice is yours. 

Either indulge pointlessly and live a mediocre life OR exercise self-restraint and be part of the top 1%. 

I’m not just talking about indulging in women here. I’m also talking about:

  • Porn
  • Weed
  • Alcohol
  • Negative thoughts
  • Junk food
  • Video games
  • Gambling
  • Shopping
  • And the list goes on…

Aside from losing your time, you fritter away your precious energy too. 

With sexual transmutation, spiritual evolution comes first. Sexual transmutation demands that we choose success over sex!

Kiss goodbye to ALL of your addictions

All addictive habits, including sex, need to go. These behaviors only give you satisfaction in the moment, but sooner or later, the cravings restart. 

Becoming a better man is your priority, not your addictive habits. Being successful and a good husband, father, and community leader is far more valuable and fulfilling than exhausting yourself over meaningless pleasures.

The maturity factor

If you are below the age of 40, then you have an even bigger task ahead of you. 

BUT, the rewards of sexual transmutation will be even higher because you have more time ahead of you to achieve greatness. 

Most men tend to be ready for this work once they hit 40. Before this, there is simply too much temptation coupled with not enough restraint.

6. Redirect your sexual desires, indulgence, and lust into your dream goals 

Take note of an addictive impulse as soon as it comes up. Notice, but don’t judge – you will feel yourself wanting to act on it. Take note of that urge.

Then, stop in your tracks.

Observe the sensations that are present within your body.

Your heart might be racing. Palms slightly sweating. You could feel hot, shaky, and agitated…

Find the invisible force that is trying to pull on your strings as if you were a puppet. This puppet master is trying to pull you out of alignment. He wants you to live a life of slavery. Slavery to your seemingly ‘uncontrollable’ desires and wayward sexual energy…

Muster the strength to cut those puppet strings. The first few times will be immensely difficult – it takes every ounce of mental grit that you have. 

After the first few times, it becomes easier.

Your brain will then forge new neural pathways… and the world of sex energy transmutation will open to you.

Try testicle breathing to help your sex energy transmutation

Struggling to resist the allure of your sexual desires?

Sit quietly and try testicle breathing. This is a meditative technique that helps you transmute sexual energy.

7. Chakra exercise

First, create some feelings of sexual stimulation. This will naturally occur in the genitals.

Once you feel the physical sensations related to arousal, use the power of your mind to move the energy up the seven chakras

  1. Start with Muladhara. Feel the earthiness. 
  2. Then move up to the sacral chakra. Feel the watery pleasure there. 
  3. Next, it’s the navel and feeling the fire. 
  4. At the heart, the air. 
  5. The throat, the spaciousness. 
  6. The third eye is clarity. 
  7. When you reach the crown, you can channel the energy. Use it for manifestation.

The chakra exercise trains you in two things: moving energy and tuning into the subtleties as energy changes form.

8. Become a tantric man

The final and most important step is also a culmination of all the steps above.

And that is becoming a tantric man.

For a tantric man, the ability to transmute sexual energy is innate. Tantra has a huge emphasis on energy. You really can’t be tantric without being able to transmute it.

Becoming a tantric man is not an easy path. It is no shortcut to sexual transmutation. 

But it is HUGELY rewarding. You will gain vitality, sexual prowess, massive willpower, and much success within ALL of your endeavors because of your ability to apply laser-sharp focus and direction to your goals.

Becoming a tantric man is not some hocus-pocus thing. It is something that I have dedicated my life to.

I started practicing tantra and transmuting my OWN sexual energy with a very average job and income…

Now I’m earning more money than I ever could have imagined.

And it’s happening to my clients in The Tantric Man Experience.

My client Jon’s business skyrocketed after he started practicing sexual transmutation. The world had just gone into lockdown. But Jon’s profits soared higher than they had ever been before.

And there are many more stories like Jon’s. You can see my client’s results for yourself here.

A list of famous people who practiced sexual transmutation

You may still have some doubts since there’s limited scientific research on the topic. 

However, there are some iconic figures and philosophers that believed in mustering your sexual energy for a greater purpose. I’ll name a few below. 

Napoleon Hill

This is what Napoleon Hill himself had to say:

“So strong and impelling is the desire for sexual contact that men freely run the risk of life and reputation to indulge it. When harnessed, and redirected along other lines, this motivating force maintains all of its attributes of keenness of imagination, courage, etc., which may be used as powerful creative forces in literature, art, or in any other profession or calling, including, of course, the accumulation of riches.”

Interesting enough? Read Chapter 11 of his famous book Think and Grow Rich: The Mystery of Sex Transmutation. He discusses the power of channeling your sexual energy to achieve material success. 

Steve Jobs

It was mentioned in an excerpt of The Bite in the Apple that Steve Jobs, the founder of tech giant Apple, believed in cultivating sexual energy to tap into his full creative potential. This makes sense considering how he was ahead of his time when it came to innovation. 

“He didn’t want to climax to build power and wealth by conserving vital energies.”

Muhammad Ali

Muhammad Ali talked about controlling sexual energy. He wouldn’t engage in any sort of sexual activity for 6 weeks prior to a fight. 

Here’s an excerpt from his autobiography

“Even in my sleep — if there are girls all over me in my dream, I say to them, I’ve got a fight next week, I can’t do anything. That’s why I am who I am today — it’s down to all those little sacrifices. Find me another boxer who makes that sacrifice, and you’ll find another champion.”

Sigmund Freud

Sigmund Freud might seem questionable. However, Freud did believe that sexual energy (or libido) could be channeled into other areas of life, such as creativity, intellectual pursuits, and social interactions. 

In his essay titled ‘Civilization and Its Discontents,’ here’s what he wrote:

“Sublimation of instinct is an especially conspicuous feature of cultural development; it is what makes it possible for higher psychical activities, scientific, artistic or ideological, to play such an important part in civilized life.”

More honorable mentions of people who practiced sexual energy transmutation

  • Carl Jung.
  • Friedrich Nietzsche.
  • Leonardo Da Vinci.
  • Mahatma Gandhi.
  • Nikola Tesla.
  • Plato.
  • Winston Churchill.

Become a tantric man and achieve your dream life 

As a tantric man, sexual transmutation will come naturally. 

All you need to do is cut the cord binding you so tightly to your sexual impulses and embark on the tantric path.

You will be able to choose which endeavors to spend your energy on.

Decisions will be made based on what they bring to you, and this is far less depleting compared to simply meeting your sexual urges. 

Becoming initiated into the tantric tradition integrates the masculine and feminine energies inside. You will have the grounding and direction of the masculine alongside the manifesting power and energy of the feminine. 

Together, these two forces are unstoppable.

What’s more, an integrated tantric man is extremely attractive to women. Relationships flow with grace and ease… Since many of the conflicts we experience in relationships occur due to a lack of integration.


Mastering your sexuality and fixing your relationship alone can be difficult. 

There is nothing like feeling supported to reach your goals. Every great man that walked had a mentor by his side. Just like Napoleon Hill, whose mentor was the first millionaire in the world. 

You can also have a mentor that will help you attain sexual mastery and abundance. Find out more by taking my free masterclass for men here.


What happens if you don’t transmute sexual energy?

If you don’t transmute sexual energy, you will remain a slave to your sexual desires. Your life will be ruled by your sex desire. It will be hard to achieve material success. This is due to your whole life being determined by your sex drive.

Can you feel sexual energy from someone?

If you are sensitive, you can tune in to the subtle frequency of sexual energy. It can become palpable. Even when you are not around them physically, you can feel the sex desire coming from them. This comes hand in hand with developing a spiritual practice.

What is sexual transmutation in Think and Grow Rich?

In Napoleon Hill’s book Think and Grow Rich, sexual transmutation is alluded to as the secret to abundance, prosperity, and material wealth. Hill does not go into any detail on how to perform sexual transmutation. It is discussed abstractly, creating an air of mystery on the topic.


Boost your confidence, master your sexuality, and find your purpose.

So you can reignite the passion in your relationship or attract your perfect woman.
