Francis King – Sexuality, Magic And Perversion (Nel, 1972)

Francis King - Sexuality, Magic and Perversion

There has always been the tradition of a hidden side to sex, the strange belief that the sexual act may be transformed into a supernatural rite.

Francis King here presents a detailed account of his researches into the relationship between sexuality, perversion and magic — touching on Tantric Rituals of India, the sexual alchemists of China and Aleister Crowley’s “Order of Oriental Templars”.

This remarkable book, the first of its kind, also provides a fascinating look at the role played by magical fantasy in hard-core pornography.
