From the Publisher

Sex is a source of joy and pleasure--and a bountiful source of potent magical energy! Until recently, many of the techniques of Western sex magic were closely guarded secrets available only to initiates. Now you can learn how to unlock the powerful energies raised during the sex act and use them to manifest your deepest desires. During the sex act, your attention becomes focused into a "laser beam" of concentration for a moment. All great systems of magic teach the power of concentrated thought-sex magic is no exception. Sex magic's "secret" is that it is a tremendously potent way to direct consciously controlled sexual energy to accomplish material and personal goals. Secrets of Western Sex Magic describes the erotic secrets of sex magic--one of the oldest magical disciplines-in a frank, explicit, and non-judgmental style. Unlike other published sex magic manuals, which have a traditionally male orientation, this book equally addresses your unique magical needs and wants whether you're a male or female magi. You will learn physical, psychological, and magical exercises to develop skills in visualization, concentration, and psychic energy arousal and flow. This engaging exploration of the history and techniques of sex magic is suitable for both men and women, regardless of magical experience or sexual preference.

Explore how sex magic differs from mystical sexual practices such as Tantra Make your own aphrodisiac teas and liqueurs Intensify and prolong orgasm to increase your sexual magis, the vital inner power released during sexual activity

Consecrate and charge sigils, amulets, and talismans using sexual energy Transfer sexual energy to heal or strengthen a partner Frater U.: D.: openly explores all aspects of sexual practice and preference-from the fundamentals of sex magic training to autoerotic, heteroerotic, homoerotic, group and so-called "deviant" practices--with a system of specific techniques to build your magis and broaden your magical and sexual horizons. You need not belong to any lodge or occult group to apply these esoteric secrets--you reap the benefits no matter what your level of magical experience!

Format: Paperback
Frater U.:D.: has provided a practical guide to sex magick, one that's been long overdue in occult literature. A brief overview is given of the history of Tantra and the `Inner Alchemy' of Taoism in comparison to western sex magick, dispelling common worries and fears regarding this much misunderstood branch of the western magickal tradition. He comments on the tendency of certain types of authors to `try to tackle a subject about which they know little only because it sells well', while noting that others often tend to exhibit `a vein of arrogance which looks down on the readers and believes that they are not yet "mature" enough for "real" knowledge'. I fully share his opinion that `secrecy has its place during learning and practicing, but not among authors who claim a desire to convey knowledge out of an inner commitment' (pg xi). Fortunately, this excellent text avoids these pitfalls.
Finally, a book on sex magick clearly written for both men and women, removing the patriarchal bias common to most texts of this genre. 'Secrets of Western Sex Magic' is aimed at consensual adults of any sexual preference or orientation, be they gay, straight, or bisexual. Even going so far as to state that `there is no such thing as total heterosexuality, as there is no such thing as total homosexuality' (pg 162); while in principle I agree, I am certain this will be a point of contention amongst many readers. He suggests that the practitioner aim for the more balanced androgyne, as he says: `Without making needless distinctions, traditional attachments and moral codes are set aside in favor of `Do what thou Wilt'. For the sex mystic, sexuality is a holy expression of one's highest destiny anyway' (pg xii).

First off, nowhere does it state that this book is about the Tantra. This book is German Occult Sex Magic at its finest and most practical. It is about magic, about using your sexual energy, releasing it, and bringing about changes.
I grew up reading the likes of Cavendish, Waite, and others, and, personally, I like this book. It's breathing exercises are fantastic, it's sigil magic is great. It's inspiring and never sets on my bookshelf for very long.

Format: Paperback
An undogmatic and highly practical DIY book, easy to understand language without being superficial. It is probably the most all-encompassing study on practical Western sex magic, lacking the patriarchal sexual bias so common with earlier works. No holds barred: whether you're gay or heterosexual or prefer an autoerotic approach, you'll find everything you need to know here. Excellent!

Format: Paperback
I bought this since practical sigil magic was hard to find.
It has the extra specifics & extracurricular activities tied to german sex magic in kind of a handy guide.
I've used the techniques to gain results in doing magic and improving my life.
To those who see it as vile or "black, etc etc"....no duh. This ain't for you. This is not even for people interested in tantra. Sure, it glosses over the tantra subject, but tantra is only a means to an end here. Were here to do MAGIC. Look at your life and see just what kind of MAGIC you've created. Tough to accept, I know.
Anyways, it's a 4 star read since it worked for me. But most of the book's subject matter is extracurricular to the basic sex magic techniques available in practical sigil magic(or on the internet). I just wanted something in my possession.

Format: Paperback
This gem of a book has information for solo, hetero, and homosexual forms of tantra and sex magick. It's practical, detailed, and informative without being obscuring or talking down to its readers. Highly recommended.
