Assalamu Alaikum, I have an OCD and I get intrusive thoughts usually due to this. While browsing the net, I came across an article which said that if one commits a sexual activity with a specific intention to get something they desire and if they think about that during the activity (especially the climax), they will get what they desired. For example, if one wants wealth and has sex for that and imagines wealth at climax, he'll get wealth. They call this sex magic and it works. I know this is a sin and maybe shirk. Now I had sex and while that, my fearful thoughts came up before the sex, during it, and at climax,though I did not want them. Have I done the so-called sex magic and have I done shirk for this?

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

This is Haram and sinful. One should repent to Allah.

اِنَّمَا التَّوۡبَةُ عَلَى اللّٰهِ لِلَّذِيۡنَ يَعۡمَلُوۡنَ السُّوۡٓءَ بِجَهَالَةٍ ثُمَّ يَتُوۡبُوۡنَ مِنۡ قَرِيۡبٍ فَاُولٰٓـئِكَ يَتُوۡبُ اللّٰهُ عَلَيۡهِمۡ​ؕ وَكَانَ اللّٰهُ عَلِيۡمًا حَكِيۡمًا‏

"(And remember that) Allah's acceptance of repentance is only for those who commit evil out of ignorance and then soon repent. It is towards such persons that Allah turns graciously. Allah is All-Knowing, All-Wise." (Sura Nisa 4:17)

And Allah knows best
