The Basic Techniques of Sex Magick
The main requirement for doing any kind of sex magick, in fact any type of magick is the ability to concentrate single-mindedly. In other words with no other thoughts intruding. This ability is difficult and the ability to do this is greatly enhanced when you release emotional blocks. This is one of the things I teach in my Life Coaching.
Here are some basic techniques of sex magick based on the Aleister Crowley teachings in regard to this interesting subject. There are other ways to do it but I will leave that for another article.
When doing any type of sex magick you should formulate your ‘purpose clearly beforehand, then concentrate on it single mindedly and then move it to the ‘background’ of your mind.
During sex, concentration is best directed towards the matter at hand. Focus on the act and build arousal. Stay in the moment – don’t think of past events or future events, – just what is occurring at the present moment.
Once in a state of heightened arousal and in a state that is close to a trance, your ‘purpose’ should overwhelm your mind up to and including the point of orgasm.
Solo Sex Magick
This is the “Crowley” O.T.O VIII degree.
- Formulate your “purpose” background it and begin sexual stimulation.
- At Orgasm:
Males – your purpose should overwhelm your mind; your semen can either be consumed or used to charge a prepared talisman – needless to say the talisman should also express your ‘purpose’.
- At Orgasm
Females – with each orgasm your ‘purpose should overwhelm your mind; as the orgasm recedes put it to the background of your mind again – repeat until done. Your vaginal fluids can be treated in the same fashion as for the semen above.
This technique is particularly well adapted to the creation of ‘magickal children’ which are spirits dedicated to a specific purpose. In fact some mystical groups believe that every time you masturbate you create a spirit. That’s probably the religious basis for “do not masturbate”.
Heterosexual Sex Magick
This is the “Crowley” O.T.O IX degree
First of all it’s possible for one participant to do this with the other completely unaware of what is going on. Of course there is a wealth of opinion on this – is it morally / ethically right or wrong?
From a strictly practical viewpoint it’s all or nothing. If you are going to use another person to do something like this then it will work best if they are either completely ignorant of what you are doing or completely on board – meaning a willing, knowledgeable and experienced participant. Partial awareness could adversely affect the performance or the result of the work.
Under the assumption that both participants – male and the female are conscious of the working;
- The ‘purpose should be agreed upon beforehand, concentrated upon, and backgrounded by both participants.
- The male participant’s orgasm should be delayed as long as possible
- Multiple orgasms in the female participant are desirable.
- Same rules apply at orgasm as for solo sex magick
- After the male participant ejaculates, the mixed fluids are taken up by him via cunnilingus and shared with the female participant in a kiss.
- This elixir is then consumed.
- The elixir can also be used to charge a Talisman
There are slightly different formulae employed depending on whether the female participant is menstruating or not.
Crowley also developed several formulae for homosexual sex magick which is the O.T.O XI degree. There is debate on whether this O.T.O degree actually means “homosexual sex magick” or whether Crowley meant it to be, whatever you have the most personal inhibitions built up against and therefore this would charge your arousal to a higher state and give the work more power.
So if all of the above sounds simple you are in for a surprise as its both difficult to do and the subject is very complex – plenty more to read and study. Have fun.
