This page is for questions relating to Adventures in Sex Magick.
Q: What is this book about?
A: Adventures In Sex Magick is about using a system to capture sexual energy and direct it into magickal workings.
Q: There seem to be several different processes in there. Do I combine them all or do them individually?
A: They can be used alone, or combined in whatever way works for you. After reading the book once, I suggest you let the ideas sink in, and then read it again so you can plan a method that appeals to you.
Q: Why so few questions here?
A: We think it’s because people find the subject matter a bit too ‘hot’ to talk about in public.

In the Basic Process Damon talks about basically orgasm creating the magical result when directed in certain way. Am I wrong assuming that he is using term orgasm interchangeably with ejaculation.? I know technically they are two different things (tho usually happening simultaneously), but often authors/writers talk about them as if they are the same thing (unless for specifically trying to teach the difference) since the readers/people in general do not tend to separate them. This leads to my question; can the Basic Process used in a way where I use ONLY (internal)orgasm as the “magical power” directed to goal WITHOUT the ejaculation, and if yes can it also applied to other methods in the book, like Major Process, “firing sigils” (maybe firing them by imagining the energy from my forehead or anywhere where I feel the internal orgasm peaking leaving my body and reaching the sigil). I practice tantra and other such practices where I often hold back from ejaculation for extended period of time and have some other reasons as well for doing so.
Also, can the angelic sexual energy mentioned in the chapter The Sexual Trance That Released Magic be used to…pretty much anything (The chapter does not tell where to direct it, only as a method to amplify the energy)? I want to amplify the orgasmic experience (and to experiment different things where the energy can be directed to) but still hold from ejaculating using this method…will it overload me? What should I take into account..?
I should also mention that I also have the Magical Seduction book and I have tried the Ritual 3 (Creating an Aura of Attraction) three times without much of a success at all. In that book it is also recommended to use sexual fluids to wipe the sigil every time as a way to power up the magic. I did only orgasm without ejaculation the first four days, and on the 5.th day I did ejaculate and wiped the fluids to sigil. I am wondering if this is the reason it did not work, if the fire spirits felt “cheated” for some reason…and if this would have correspondence/similarity to my questions in paragraphs above.
What could be some ways to power up the sigils (Adventures in sex magic or Magical Seduction, or any other for that matter), or direct the energy toward goal, with orgasmic/sexual energy without the need to ejaculate? Thank you for taking the time to read this long one!
Ejaculation is not mentioned in the book and Damon is talking about orgasm. Yes you can use the Basic Process without ejaculation – the magick in this book is quite raw and open to interpretation and experimentation.
Yes the trance energy is highly adaptable. As for Ritual 3 what you mention could have weakened it, but it may be a more general reason. That’s pretty good magick so it might be worth reading the ‘why didn’t work’ bit on this page: https://galleryofmagick.com/fears-and-problems-faq/ But if you just want to pour the energy of trance of ritual into a sigil, you can do that. It’s just an act of will or imagination depending how you see it.
Hi there and thank you so much for sharing all this wonderful information. In the book it says you can use sexual energy and the process described for any other sigil you are working with. So if Im working with a specific Angel, say one from AAoM, can I fire that sigils with this kind of energy? Are all Angels ok with this kind of energy? And finally how would you practically do that? Would you fire up the sigils at some point before you do the actual ritual?
Hey, thanks for getting in touch. It’s been about four years since I read that book, so do you mean The Major Process? If so, yes, that can be used to fire up anything, because really when your put energy into something what’s actually happening is sort of the reverse – you’re taking the sigil within yourself, so that it’s image is potent and magickal to you. Without getting to theoretical, sex magick like that just makes the connection to the sigil stronger, and the sexual energy is also creative. I can’t really explain it better than the book, but anyway, yes, you can, because it’s not like you’re soiling or despoiling an angelic sigil, or binding yourself to a demonic one. The energy is making a connection between you and the sigil. So you’d do it just the way it’s described, but with a pre-made sigil. But even though I love experiments, sometimes this urge to add extra power comes from a fear the sigil won’t work as it is. Truth is, the sigils in Archangels of Magick don’t need anything else, sexual or otherwise to work. So in a way I suppose what I’m saying is you could do it, but you don’t need to, and if you feel the need to it might mean there’s some doubt, fear or discomfort you’re feeing about the magick. If not, and you’re just interested in using the knowledge gained from this book, cool, I get that – but I actually think it’s best used for self-created sigils and that sort of thing.
Thank you very much for the quick reply. I have already experienced great results with these sigils so I really trust them and feel the power inherent in them. But yes I love sexual practice and magick so was definitely looking for more ways to work with that energy.
hope this finds you well
ive only been doing magick for 6 months ( all gallery of magick books ) never heard of brit menucha or shorshei before this or any other magick books for that matter but i noticed something
a lot of this – the working, the names of 72 angels and demons even some of the angelic emissaries from dom which Gordon mentions are not in angelic dictionaries ( i didnt even know there was dictionaries on angels ) all seem familiar as if its a memory
does this happen to everyone when they start doing magick
even the image on the cover of angels of wrath and demons of magick i’ve had dreams since i was a child of them where i would be walking in the dream and see in the sky that image on angels of wrath or even weirder the tree with the ground underneath it from DOM ive seen that since i was 10 years old in dreams im 28 this year
thats how i found you guys 6 months ago i had a dream where i was standing in a field in the middle of a bleak winters day with that tree in the middle of the field. it was raining and in the sky behind the tree was clouds in the shape of the letters g gom. when i woke up that morning all that was in my head was g winterfield gom when i got to work i typed that into google and there i saw the tree on demons of magick i was blown away as i have always believed in the supernatural
since december ive bought all goms books except for magickal seduction and sex magick and it all feels like a memory any ideas why
look forward to your reply after writing this i actually feel a bit silly
Hi. That’s not unheard of, but not common. The most common reaction is for people to say, “These aren’t in my angel dictionary, so they can’t be real.” There’s a response to that on the Pronunciation page which goes like this: Q: I googled the names of angels and spirits in your books but can’t find them, and they’re not in my angelic dictionaries. Why not?
A: The spirit names are derived from primary source materials. Such books are not readily available online, but must be accessed from private collections or in locations such as The British Library. Some of the angel names are well-known and appear in popular dictionaries and even on Wikipedia. Others, although they appear (sometimes with different transliteration) in some rare printed English texts, are relatively obscure outside of Hebrew literature. With sufficient research you may see the names we use occurring in occult literature.
That aside, I have heard of this feeling of familiarity. Equally, some people see and hear the names and feel it’s very strange and unusual, distant event. Thankfully, this doesn’t seem to affect the magick. I have no idea why, except that sometimes when something has a large impact on our future, it resonates with us when we meet it in the present. That’s the most likely explanation to me, but it is a guess. Nothing silly about that question – I love it when people get strange sensations and perceptions. It’s like a little nudge telling you it’s all real. Thanks for buying the books. Cheers, Adam B
