  • customer reviews
A step-by-step guide to the occult science of sex magic

• Based on the practices of P. B. Randolph, occult rival of H. P. Blavatsky

• Reveals how to perform sex magic rituals for specific real-world results, such as greater strength or enhancement of the senses

• Explains how to create magical talismans, such as rings with specific planetary forces, how to enliven a painting, and how to charge an effigy

Conceived by Paschal Beverly Randolph, Magia Sexualis has been heralded as the most influential book about sex magic ever written, surviving to the present day solely through Maria de Naglowska’s French translation. Published more than 50 years after Randolph’s death, the authorship of this “translation” has been repeatedly called into question: While the greater part of the content can be traced to Randolph’s known works, a very significant portion cannot--leading to the conclusion that this work was supplemented by Naglowska’s own sex magic work and extensive occult teachings.

Magia Sexualis explains Randolph’s meticulous science of sex magic, practiced by the Brotherhood of Eulis and the Hermetic Brotherhood of Light. Beginning with exercises to develop essential skills, the book explains in step-by-step detail how to perform sex magic rituals for specific results, such as greater strength or enhancement of the senses, how to charge and use a “volt”--an effigy of a specific person you want to influence or protect, how to enliven a painting in order to influence those around it, and how to create magical talismans with specific planetary forces, using what Randolph calls “fluid condensers.” This work from two great occult minds shows that true power of the spirit is acquired in conjunction with the power of sex--affirming that “sex is the fundamental force in every being, the most powerful force in Nature, and the most characteristic evidence of God.”

Preface
An Instrument of Initiatic Knowledge


Doctor Paschal Beverly Randolph is one of the great, mysterious figures of nineteenth-century occultism. There has been much talk about him, and much heated discussion of his bizarre theories by those not initiated into them, outside of his students and secret adepts. But it has never been possible to reconstruct the personality and intimate life of this American mulatto, who trusted no one and constantly surrounded himself with absolutely impenetrable mystery. Silence was his emblem and the watchword that he imposed on all those who approached him.

Still, the few details,... see more
