Au contraire, Freud called it the Libido.

That is really just a misapprehension of the Kundalini Shakti, which is sexual in nature, because it is the force of creation.

Transmuting sexual energies for a higher purpose is one of the main aims of Yoga and other spiritual disciplines. Celibacy is generally a prerequisite of most monastic traditions for this reason. Tantra is the major exception, which cleverly utilises controlled forms of sexuality in transmuting these energies, without having to resort to celibacy to achieve it.

Sorry to have to contradict you but I think if you review a few composers and artists you'll find out that plenty are/were sexually very active. Actually, the same energy underpins creativity and what manifests in humans as sex/libido - it's a root universal power - so I suppose some artists have a superfluity of energy that they can direct at both.
And, of course, a powerful orgasm hurls one into their inner worlds so that, if given time, the aftermath can be a huge source of creative inspiration (much as JG Ballard and others have used dream material).

But yes, some artists lead nigh-celibate sex lives most probably because they pursue their art single-mindedly. Van Gogh and Beethoven come to mind.

That's an uninformed statement. A little funny.

Everything on every level of existence could be see as an interplay and result of Purusha and Prakriti, spirit and nature, soul and form, etc.

As human beings ascend they may sublimate the grosser energies - sex and procreation is but one manifestation in that full range - thereby creating in-and-through higher manifestations of consciousness.
