Presence of Female Partner is also requied for any Yajna performed or even samaanya dharma of Dhaana etc.

Request you to clearly make it where does this female partner is subjected to intercourse during the puja session and how Pancharaatra explains Tantri idea of intercourse leading to Atmaanubhava

Neither Bhattacharyya nor me is so illiterate as to mix these two cases. The case in Lakshmi-tantra is clearly sexual ritual and no mere presence in yajna or whatever. Just see the text ;)
