did Aleister Crowley write any books specifically on sex magick?

if so, which ones?
@qualified law of return,
Crowley’s writings were not meant to be taken literally like you are quoting. the true meaning is there for those who understand.


  1. “For the highest spiritual working one must accordingly choose that victim which contains the greatest and purest force. A male child of perfect innocence and high intelligence is the most satisfactory and suitable victim.”
    Aleister Crowley (serial cat murderer)
    Chapter: On Human Sacrifice

  2. Not specifically. You have to realize, the “image” of Wicca, and most “resurrected” nature religions, had to carefully separate themselves from any associations with accusations of “devil” worship, which included black magic, sex, sacrifice and other “atrocities” cooked up by the Church in order to demonize the old religions.
    Authors today have the freedom to write and distribute much more detailed material.

  3. Crowley never wrote a book specifically on sex magick, for him the magical arts were all part of a greater, inter-related whole so addressing any single aspect of them wouldn’t have made sense.

  4. well, the theme of Sexual Magick is included in many of his books. The thing is that they are highly symbolic and you have to have some background knowledge as to how to read his books. Liber I.A.O. is seen as lost, some say it never existed but Crowley made reference to it in other books.
    Here is one which may explain Crowley’s Sexual Magick a bit more:
    Both authors are experts on Crowley and Sexual Magick as well.
    also here you will find reference to a lot of workings that include Sexual Magick to at least some extent:
    Just search the word s ex on that page and you will see.
    As far as I know there is not book by Crowley that refers to Sex Magick in clear wording.
    Hope that helps a bit.

  5. 93,
    The most obvious is probably Liber IAO [Link unavailable].
    Beyond that Liber XXXVI IS a sex magick ritual, though it is very well concealed [Remember, the rituals are half concealed. http://www.sacred-texts.com/oto/lib36.htm To have it explained, read chapter 69 in The Book of Lies Falsely So-Called [The number should be a clue]
    Stella Rubae is also in the list, but like the one above it is half-concealed. http://www.sacred-texts.com/oto/lib66.htm
    One can take Liber Astarte as sex magick, depending on a few factors, so I will include it. http://www.sacred-texts.com/oto/lib175.htm
    If you can find it, The Paris working will describe a homosexual form of sex magick, but it might make you feel a bit dirty.
    Note; that most of Crowley’s work touches on sex, and you can find it quite easily if you look. A Keyword to look for is “Yoga,” as it is more of a Yogic concept than a Magical one; for Crowley.
    If you are still interested in an Occult-group, the OTO is entrusted with those secrets, though it is not that hard to figure out [The secret is homosexual sex, the cat has been out of the bag for a while.]
    Edit: Black Rabbit- He is talking about masturbation. He is telling the reader to whack off. That is a well known fact.
