So how does it work? LaVey suggests a self-reflexive assessment of one's physical appearance and mental qualities, which he classifies and situates on a so-called Synthesiser Clock. This is key to an understanding of one's self and others. In order to bewitch a man, one must operate as the opposite of his Apparent self, that is, his obvious physical and mental characteristics. A rugged, masculine twelve o'clock will respond most favourably, then, to a feminine, curvaceous six o'clock, with a whole multitude of nuances between. If nothing else, this establishes a deeper understanding of the attributes of self and others.Read more ›
What Anton Lavey covers in this book is not so much terrible secrets nor is it about anything arcane, but rather he explains and details the human nature and how to use it to your own advantage. This book is for women though and what tweaks and adjustments they can make to their personality, looks, etc to influence the way others think and therefore how to sway their favor. Chapters here cover a wide variety of topics and their applications in snaring your prey, so to speak. Not all conquests here though are of a sexual nature. Lavey also gives tips on getting along with coworkers and other women.
There are many topics covered in this book but I think my favorite thing was how empowering this book was. Long before I read it I heard many things such as Anton Lavey was sexist and a misongynist, etc. After reading this however, it would take a complete idiot to think that. This quite possibly is the book that has single handedly been empowering witches/women since it's original printing in 1970.
You will find no advice here to diet and become an anorexic husk of a woman, but rather learn the beauty inherant in your own natural body whether it be thin, plump, or plus sized.Read more ›
This book will tell every women about why she does the things she does. It will give insight to whom one is. Mr. LaVey's Philosophy and insight's to what women are all about does not just fit the Satanic ways of life but can be used by every women in todays daily life's.
This book told me why I have done the things I have done in my life and given me great insight to my inner self. This book will not sway you one way or the other but will help you to get what you want out of life. It will help you to help your self in all aspects of daily life and if you are lucky enough it may even show you who and how to win your mate.
If you enjoy this book you may find that other books that Mr. LaVey has written may fit into your Philosophy as well. Don't look upon these as evil or with Bad Carma for they are not. The Philosophy is of a Genius.
So: this book is probably one of the most practical and potent guides to glamour magick (or "lesser magic" as LaVey calls it) ever written. It teaches a specific type of magical practice for female witches—how to raise, attract and capture male sexual energy for the purposes of personal ritual power. And it works. The underlying theory is that inside every respectable heterosexual man is a dirty little boy who just wants to look up skirts and see things he shouldn't see in "polite" society, and if you can tap into these primal sexual taboos you can get men transfixed on you and draw in all that energy for yourself kinda like a sexy lady vampire. Did I mention IT WORKS? Because it really does. I've employed techniques from this book into my own sorcery for decades and they are effective and do exactly what they claim to do.
A caveat: there's also a lot to dislike in this book. Some of LaVey's own theories of personality sound far-fetched, to say the least, and some advice comes across as misogynistic, especially his implicit suggestion that male sexual power is the ONLY kind of power accessible to women, an assumption any real "compleat witch" would find laughable. While some of the nonsense ("99% of women are dependent on men!") is likely a reflection of its time period, other statements read more like LaVey's personal issues with women coming through. But if you can get past all the fluff there is some *extremely* potent and easily-applied glamour magick in here.Read more ›
