The natural way is that the energy in the body is focused ultimately on the survival which extends further in creating other bodies. More or less this is the summary of material existence which nature expresses.
Because the body is perishable, because it can be damaged or eaten, nature has to protect the body. Once a body is created, then it has to make efforts to survive by procuring substances from the environment. Its survival however is not assured forever; hence nature has reproduction as a way of jumping from one destroyed body to another living form.
To reproduce nature has to develop an energy charge so that the subtle life force mechanism can gain psychological control over the materials for the formation of the new body. Thus sexual facilities come into play for reproduction.
Gender is there but when it is used for reproduction it is regarded as being sexual. The sensations which developed through sexuality are interpreted as pleasure and that causes a whole different consideration.
In siddha yoga (inSelf yoga) the sexual pleasures are ignored for the most part. This happens because of a loss of interest in the reproduction phase of nature. With this the energy no longer bridges at the genitals, at the sex organ chakra. Instead the energy bridges at the crown chakra. This makes for super-awareness instead of super-sexual-pleasure. In that case the consciousness is not applied to polarize gender. Hence the energy no longer carries a lust charge which is required for reproduction of life forms.
Here are some diagrams.

I am not cleat as to the energies that flows according to the arrows.

Assuming that cleat is clear:
In the top diagram, breath energy is attracted mostly to the sex organ chakras, where such energy fuses with energy from the legs and thighs at the same sex organ chakra. This combines with kundalini charge at the same sex organ chakra, making that the focal point of consciousness.
In the bottom diagram, breath energy goes down to the feet without being attracted to the sex organ chakra. This energy mixes with energy from the thighs and legs and then courses upwards through the right and left sides into the brain where it is attracted to the crown chakra. Sex energy chakra has no function in this lower diagram but it is the main operator in the top diagram.
