By mudra consort yoga, instinctual emission is transformed into instinctual nonemission, like mercury and fire. This is spoken of by the Buddha in verse 224 of the Methods of Accomplishment chapter of the king of:
"Fire is enemy of mercury;
without fire mercury is never bound.
Unbound it will not create gold;
no gold is of no use to man.
Similarly, not in union with a consort,
the yogi's mind is forever unbound.
Unbound, his body is not penetrated,
a body not penetrated does not grant innate bliss [the bliss of withholding emission]." - Vimalaprabha, Stainless Light, The Great Commentary, by Pundarika

To increase this innate bliss of the conquerer,

then create the sun form, with body, face,
legs, crown, all limbs complete... - Vimalaprabha, Stainless Light, The Great Commentary, by Pundarika

With the pride of a vajra holder (that is, with a sense of divinity and respect, not animal),
the vajra with the lotus enters the lotus (male and female unite).
With the lingam (male organ) placed into the bhaga (female organ),
the yogi performs hum phat (the secret ) ;
the (sexual energy) is not emitted. - Vimalaprabha, Stainless Light, The Great Commentary, by Pundarika
