The branch of Tantra Yoga which focuses on sex is known as NeoTantra due to western interpretations.....However....this is what I read in Wikipedia,

"
When enacted as enjoined by the tantras the ritual culminates in a sublime experience of infinite awareness, by both participants. The Tantric texts (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tantras) specify that sex has three distinct and separate purposes procreation, pleasure and liberation. Those seeking liberation eschew frictional orgasm for a higher form of ecstasy (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Religious_ecstasy), as the couple participating in the ritual, lock in a static embrace. Several sexual rituals are recommended and practised. These involve elaborate and meticulous preparatory and purificatory rites. The act balances energies coursing within the pranic (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pranic) ida (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ida_%28yoga%29) and pingala (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pingala) channels in the subtle bodies of both participants. The sushumna (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sushumna) nadi (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nadi_%28yoga%29) is awakened and kundalini (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kundalini) rises upwards within it. This eventually culminates in samadhi (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Samadhi) wherein the respective individualities of each of the participants are completely dissolved in the unity of cosmic consciousness (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cosmic_consciousness). Tantrics uarepresent Shiva (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shiva) and Shakti (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shakti), the male and female principles. Beyond the physical, a subtle (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Subtle) fusion of Shiva and Shakti energies takes place resulting in a united energy field. On an individual level, each participant experiences a fusion of their own Shiva and Shakti energies.[27] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tantra_yoga#_note-25)[28]" (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tantra_yoga#_note-26)

Can someone tell me specifically how to achieve liberation through sex? Seems like a very fun way!
