Oscar Wilde - Introduction to sex magic
Sex magick means using your sexuality in order to work magick. This technique is not
new nor outrageaous; although usually kept secret many esoteric systems use sexuality
for spiritual and magical aims. Examples of such traditions are witchcraft, shamanism,
alchemy, Buddhism and Hinduism tantra and ancient Egyptian religion. A probably more
known form of sex magick is the ceremonial sexual union of man and woman on the land
to ensure a good crop. Their fertility act should encourage the land to deliver a rich
harvest. Western sex magick has its roots in Hebrew kabala and is spread further through
several occult doctrines like the knight's templar and the freemasons.
Nowadays sex magick is a beautiful way of giving sex back its rightful place of sacred
sexuality. It is a firm invitation to leave the trail of the sneaky, hidden-in-the-dark and
'sinful' sex most of us have grown up with. It is a call to stop fighting this most powerful
human force and to make use of its possibilities. Since sexuality is a gift from God/the
Goddess it has to be divine. Within an open and respectful sexual relationship we can
experience ourselves in all our aspects: the animal part, the human part and the divine
flame within. Thus the beast-man-God is connected, as well as the beast-womanGoddess.
