Kenneth Grant has explored the realms of Aleister Crowley's world of Sex Magick and successfully applied it to his own philosophy of Typhonian Magick. A great review and introduction to Western Tantric practices.
This is part two of the initial Typhonian trilogy which includes his other books "The Magical Revival" and "Cults of the Shadow", all of which are worthy readings for the New Age Occultist.
A must have for those interested in Aleister Crowley, the O.T.O., Sex Magick, and/or Chaos Magick

9 of 12 people found the following review helpful By Walter Five VINE VOICE on March 3, 2003
Format: Hardcover
This book was, for many years, one of the most lucid books written on heterosexual Tantric sex magick available, particularly of the Thelemic current, and three decades later, it's still *quite* informative. But Mr. Grant unfortunatley exposed his homophobia in this book, and wrote disparagingly about Crowley's infamous, alleged (and admittedly possibly spurious) XI Degree. However, it IS almost 30 years since Grant originally wrote this, so perhaps his prejudices concerning homosexual magickal workings, and those who work them, softened.

Grant had the tendency to get a little loopy and self-referential (as well as self-reverential) in some of his other works, but largely stuck to the points here. This is the Skoob Book 2nd edition; a 3rd edition will be released by Starfire Press in the near future, those students not wishing to invest $100+ would be well advised to wait for its re-publication later this year in 2013, it will include additional illustrations by the late Mr. Grant's wife Steffi.

Format: Hardcover
AS other reviewers have stated this is a look at sexual magic and Crowley's use of it to commuicate with powers outside this world.However it is only one part of nine books and Mr. Grant tries to find the hidden meanings in Crowley writings (mostly the book of law).He does this in the books with a numeralogically based system.It is very hard to understand but after reading the books you can get the hang of it.Grant looked as Crowley as a secrectary taking dictiation from the E.T.s and as a secretary would; from a boss, not really understanding it.He also believed that artists such as Dali and H. P. Lovecraft were unknowingly doing the same thing.The magician in his books should strive to become a mystic and in his idea of mysticism there where no rituals or procedures in coming in contact with the E.Ts.So he believes that some of the ideas used by Crowley were profrane and arose fron Crowley's christian up bringing.Occultists saw the left-hand -path as the reverse of the order of the world so if it was forbidden by them it must have been the path to the true God.As time has telled the cathoilic church pacticed many of the perverisions Crowley did and this was based on the gulit based ideas of Christianity,Judaism and Islam.These solar(male) cults were in reverse to the lunar (female) cults of Lilth ,Sophia and others.In many ways we do live in the so called aeon of the "beast" just a look at modern day society and you see Mr Crowley would have fit right in.The over all theme in the Typhonia trilogies is that you must embrance the dark side of life (death and the abyss) to fully understand the World and if you are lucky or choosen the E.T.s will commicate with you.A look at what has become of Christianty in the modern world is a good example.Read more ›

Unsubstantiated nonsense. One phrase comes to mind here: 'prove it'. There is no historical evidence for his claims, and they do NOT represent any actual discipline or tradition. This is just fantasy nonsense.
