First let us apologize for not keeping everyone up to date with our blogs. Trips to the hospital, doctor visits, and three half-day physical therapy sessions a week–as well as trying to keep the School current–have kept us busy. Gavin is doing better but still having a lot of pain; we do not know whether a third back surgery will be required.
Locust plagues occur predictably every seventeen years. In a similar fashion, though perhaps a little less regularly, in an event that has become almost a ritual, the Christo-pseudo-Wiccans get up in arms about “The Witch’s Bible” (republished as “Good Witch’s Bible”) with rumors of unarticulated complaints. People just attack us and our work because of some vague discomfort we’re alleged to be causing them. So now, as the Walrus said to the Carpenter, it’s time to talk of many things: of shoes and ships and sealing-wax … and of natural endorphines.
Since earliest times it has been known that orgasm while under the influence of psychedelic substances creates the possibility of visiting Nirvana. In the ancient Hindu Tantric tradition this was accomplished by drinking something called soma–honey mead with psychedelic additives– and then having multiple orgasms while ascending a path made by combining opposite-natured gods and goddesses. Under Indira Gandhi the Indian government sponsored a college’s efforts to reconstruct this very ancient knowledge that probably dated from earlier than 20,000 BCE.
Gavin was allowed to attend that college in the Indian Punjab. As a result of his experiences in the time he spent there, we wrote “Tantric Yoga”, published in 1989 CE by Samuel Weiser. The book contains adequate instruction on how to climb the path to Nirvana and how to enter the secret chakra. It includes information necessary to bring you safely down again to the earth plane. The final day of raising the kundalini serpent requires multiple orgasms, one every 2 hours and 4 minutes, for a total of eight.
Every time we have tested the path, it has worked. Only in the 1990s, when Professor Candace Pert wrote “Molecules of Emotion”, did we realize in objective scientific terms what was actually happening. Her work was further enhanced by the discovery of the ligands that entered the opiate receptors at the cellular level. These ligands, actually a naturally occurring form of morphine, were called endorphines. The more endorphines you have in your bloodstream, the stronger will be your chance of reaching dramatically altered states of consciousness.
Of course endorphines can be raised in many ways. Punishment such as being whipped raises the level of endorphines. An early work of Gerald Gardner’s included sex and whipping in the third-degree initiation. An easier and more pleasant way to raise endorphines is to eat dark chocolate and drink red wine. Endorphines are also raised by bodily stress such as is experienced in a sweat lodge. So this is the first aspect of sex magic that is scientifically proven to change your state of consciousness.
In our books we have scrupulously avoided encouraging the use of psychedelics. Such use is illegal and thus would bring you into conflict with the Wiccan principal guideline: “If it harm none, do what you will.” The revelation that Professor Pert’s work gave to the world showed why ancient covens had all done sex magic. And not only covens: In early Rome the reports of early Christian sex-magical practices are well documented.
A second aspect which has not been so widely explored is the level of adrenalin which occurs during any form of excitement. The higher the excitement, the more energy seems to be raised. One way to raise the level of excitement is the promise of sexual release after a short spell of celibacy (perhaps three days). It has also been found that changing partners dramatically increases the amount that a group can raise. Many years ago in festivals (first in Minneapolis and then in Connecticut) we had volunteers of mixed genders work both toward Nirvana and in healing. The rates of success were truly dramatic. All this information is easily available to the researcher in our book “Bible of Sex Magic and Enlightenment” published in 2007 CE.
Now if we switch back to the infamous “Good Witch’s Bible”–written before the knowledge of endorphines and other methods of raising them was known–we Frosts described and recommended a Tantric method.
If a coven is going to practice sex magic regularly with changing partners, then obviously during initiation partners should be changed. We admit that there may be some confusion about the initiations. We did state quite clearly in “Good Witch’s Bible” that no one under the age of eighteen (18) should be initiated; now we want to add that the coven’s most recent initiate of the appropriate gender should be the one to initiate the incoming neophyte. This approach obviates any power play by a senior priest or priestess in the form of grabbing all the newbies–all the fresh meat–for him/herself.
We Frosts have frequently been criticized as well for not answering questions. All your questions can be answered if you simply read the books on the subject that we have published; the most recent is “The Bible of Sex Magic and Enlightenment.” The book contains 300 pages, so it should be obvious that your questions cannot be answered in a tweet or a facebook paragraph. Further we want to say this: If you can’t be bothered to read the published material before you ask your questions or start your carping, you cannot expect and do not deserve a coherent answer.
We have a question of our own for people unhappy about us Frosts and about our work:
What is the title of the most recent work you have published in the interest of promoting Wicca, instead of tearing down its founders and denigrating the book on which the court decision recognizing Wicca as a religion was founded?
