Nirgamana (निर्गमन) refers to “coming out” (e.g., after entering in), according to the Ṣaṭsāhasrasaṃhitā, an expansion of the Kubjikāmatatantra: the earliest popular and most authoritative Tantra of the Kubjikā cult.—Accordingly, “How is the visualization? ‘One should think of one’s own (svādhiṣṭhāna) as having six faces.’ The six-faced (figure) is the Liṅga consisting of a hexagon. One should think of the goddess there, that is, the syllable of the Yoni (i.e. AIṂ). (The text says) ‘the mouth (of one) is touched by the mouth (of the other)’. Having touched, that is, blocked the mouth, which is śakti by the mouth which is the Liṅga, one should think there of the Self in the middle of the Liṅga. In what manner? Whilst engaged in 'the swing of wanton sport (helādola)' that is, whilst churning (mathamāna) (engaged in sexual intercourse) that consists of entering in and (then) coming out (praveśa-nirgamana). [...]”.
Shakta (शाक्त, śākta) or Shaktism (śāktism) represents a tradition of Hinduism where the Goddess (Devi) is revered and worshipped. Shakta literature includes a range of scriptures, including various Agamas and Tantras, although its roots may be traced back to the Vedas.
