Advanced Sex Magic

The Hanging Mystery Initiation

Introduction and notes by: Donald Traxler / Translated by: Donald Traxler
The first English translation of Maria de Naglowska’s treatise on advanced sexual magic practices, Le mystère de la pendaison

• Details Naglowska’s advanced occult teachings on the Third Term of the Trinity and the spiritually transformative power of sex

• Explains the mystical erotic hanging rituals of La confrérie de la Flèche d’Or [The Brotherhood of the Golden Arrow], the notorious occult order of 1930s Paris

• Continues the sexual initiatory teachings first expounded in Naglowska’s The Light of Sex

Available for the first time in English, Advanced Sex Magic illuminates the revolutionary occult teachings of Maria de Naglowska--Russian mystic, esoteric high priestess, and self-styled “Satanic Woman” of 1930s Paris. Her religious system, called the Third Term of the Trinity, considered the Holy Spirit (or Wholesome Spirit) to be feminine and taught the importance of sex for the regeneration of the world and the uplifting of humanity.

A complement to her The Light of Sex, this book on the hanging mystery initiation details her advanced teachings on the Third Term of the Trinity and the spiritually transformative power of sex and reveals the erotic ritual hanging and other sensory deprivation practices of her magical group, La confrérie de la Flèche d’Or [The Brotherhood of the Golden Arrow]. These advanced mystical sexual practices were required for initiation into the brotherhood, and, as Naglowska shows, only through the union of the masculine and the feminine can we bring about a reconciliation of the light and dark forces in nature.

The Neutralization of the Black Fire


The Healer Mage cuts the gibbet rope at the exact moment when the strangulation risks becoming fatal.

The candidate, passed out, slides down then, supported by the Mage, to the bed of hay covered with a cloth of yellow silk, ready at the foot of the gibbet from the beginning of the session.

The Mage arranges the arms and legs of the Freedman, and gets his head into a comfortable position.

In a low voice the Venerable Warriors and the witnesses say the prayer of the healing sleep, while the Mage takes up the incantation that will accentuate and prolong the... see more

Maria de Naglowska

Maria de Naglowska (1883-1936), also known as the Sophiale de Montparnasse, was a Russian occultist, mystic, and founder of the Brotherhood of the Golden Arrow, whose conferences in Paris in the 1930s were attended by many now-famous individuals, such as Julius Evola, Man Ray, and André Breton.
