  Amg Ada
Sex Worship Posted by Xnoubis on Tuesday November 13, @06:30PM
from the happily-pining-away dept.

A reader recently pointed out the Pure Fire website, home of the Amg Ada sex magick tradition. I had never heard of it before, but it's strikingly beautiful, and totally unlike anything else. Has anyone had any experience with this method? Based on what I've seen here, I hope it prospers.

    Totally unlike anything else?

    What does it really have to offer that any Joe-common couldn't figure out? I found it to be completely uninitiated anti-crowley hogwash. It seems to imply that only sex is magic(k!) and not only that but confuses 'dreams' with a magical act of union with the divine. Perhaps my standards are high? But I don't see it getting anywhere past a stingy playboy article. It's soooo Oprah!

      I should have written- Like so many modern-day "Thelemites" it misinterprets sex magick as having something to do with the actual physical act of sex, which it does not. Unfortunately, some currently popular "Thelemites" through books like "magick of thelema" and the "Enochian World of A.C." support such a ludicrous claim, or at least mislead their audiences, and thereby _tarnish_ the name of Thelema, that magick of the 93 current is done through a physical sexual act.

      Thus: Instead of preserving the practices and tradition of Thelema they are rather being destroyed by charlatans; instead of gaining initiates rather they are being repulsed.

        You've piqued my curiosity, J. A rationale I've heard for most sex magick is that the "physical act of sex" is what creates the basis for the magical link. What do you suggest creates the basis of the link, absent the physical act?

          If the above were true then I could be made divine by mixing poisonous chemicals as suggested by alchemists.

            I guess you're being too subtle for me. Let me rephrase the question: how do you believe the magical link is to be made in an operation of sex magick?

              You actually want me to reveal such a secret to you and anyone with an internet connection?

                You're saying that Aleister Crowley didn't? I think perhaps you are being satirical. It couldn't be because you have no good answer, could it?

                  Are you saying that he did?

                    Yes, I am saying that in Magick in Theory and Practice, particularly Chapter XIV, he revealed the principles behind the creation of a proper magical link. If you disagree I would be quite interested in knowing the reasoning which leads you to disagree.

                      I didn't see anything about sex in Ch. 14 of MTP.

                      Now I already told you that information you seek regarding the Magical Link as far as that which flow from my lips is classified.

                        So somehow sex magick does not operate along the same principles as magick in general?

                          No, I'm saying that sex magick originally got its name from the codex of sexual language to convey secrets that are otherwise generally referred to as magick. I sent you some bait about the alchemy bit, but I guess you didn't catch on. Oh well.

                          You see, doing magick while having sex is just doing magick while having sex. And while it might be fun it is not something that one builds a valid magical order around. You see, it's rather foolish teeny-bop Britney Spears kinda crap with no real advanced content. (I can't believe that I even have to tell you this!!!)

                            So what about the fact that Crowley wrote about it in such glowing terms, comparing it to 'old aeon' sacrificial blood rites as like a machine gun to a boomerang?

                              I don't know Mordecai. You'd have to ask him that question.

                        Ah, the classified magickal secrets. A concept bantered about by individuals who know better than to put their tenuous and fragile belief up to a scrutiny which would weaken and destroy its delicate and wobbly structure.

        I don't get it, J.A. I've certainly run into my share of "Tantric" Buddhists who claim that tantra isn't about sex at all. And there are certainly plenty who think that tantra is ONLY sex.

        I myself beleive that the middle way is best: proper tantra includes both the spiritual and the sexual - as does proper sex magick.

        After browsing through the Pure Fire site, I don't see any particular reason for your harsh comments.

        For those who would like an overview/index page, try the Pure Fire Foundation Directory.

          I don't believe tantra has anything to do with sex magick.

    It may be just my opinion but you want the world to accept you and your Thelemic practices and then you go and endorse some trash like bimbo magic(k!) - perhaps without even realizing that you're doing it, you become your own enemy against your true will. If you can understand this...(you never really analyze or comment, just endorse here on the Beastbay!), which in pratice is on the same page as a politician trying to please everyone with sophistry. It doesn't work. You can't gain worldly respect and be a politician. You have to draw the line, Xnoubis.

        Who wants worldly respect anyway. Roosevelt, Churchill and De Gaulle may have the respect of the 'world' (or repect of the western anglo saxon majority who seem too often to be the only voice heard). So, the 'world' may laude them, but it doesn't disguise the fact that they were villains and scoundrels.

          What I actually meant, was that occultists come from the world.

          It was probably a 'low shot' against Xnoubis, but Bimbo magick(TM)? -Now that's *low*.

              Bimbo magic(k) is magick that does worship big dick.

                and there's none of that in Crowley's magick.. yeah - right. apparently you missed the joke.
