Présentation de l'éditeur

BDSM sexuality as a powerful tool for self-transformation and the realization of magical and spiritual aims

• Details how to combine the 6 major types of S&M stimulation with sexual stimulation for magical and transformative purposes

• Explores sado-magical workings from both submissive and dominant perspectives

• Traces the roots of the BDSM tradition from ancient pagan and shamanic rituals to historical figures such as the Marquis de Sade, Aleister Crowley, and Anton LaVey

Sex magic allows us to tap in to the most abundant power source available: sexual energy. Magicians, shamans, and fakirs throughout history have used physical stimulation and ritual to harness sexual energy, unlock inner states of consciousness, and activate the ability to influence their surroundings. While pleasure is often the focus of this stimulation, pain is just as effective, if not more so.

Combining both pleasure and pain, the sadomasochistic practice of Carnal Alchemy offers a powerful tool for self-transformation and the realization of magical and spiritual aims. Authors Stephen and Crystal Dawn Flowers explain the sado-magical workings of Carnal Alchemy from both the perspective of the submissive partner as well as the dominant. They detail the 6 major techniques of sadomasochistic stimulation--bondage, flagellation, piercing, penetration, clamping, and heat/cold--and how they can be combined with sexual stimulation for magical purposes. They trace the roots of the BDSM tradition in ancient pagan rites of passage, in indigenous shamanic rituals, and through historical figures who used this form of sexuality in their magic and philosophy, from the Marquis de Sade to more modern exemplars such as Aleister Crowley, Ernst Schertel, and Anton LaVey.

This guide also covers specialized furniture and tools and the decor of “the Chamber” to trigger states of consciousness in which the Sado-Magician can effectively express his or her will.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 An intriguing approach to sex magic 8 décembre 2004
Par Taylor Ellwood - Publié sur
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
This book is an intriguing read, particularly if you're into sex magic and BDSM. It's well written, informative (in a general way), and offers some ideas of how to incorporate BDSM into sex magic. The authors also offer a lot of theory in this book, explaining what carnal alchemy is and even offer a bit of practical advice in terms of how to play safe in BDSM and how to work sex magic through the dominant-submissive paradigm. I particularly like the list of recommended readings, which give readers some more reading they can do.

Also the explanations of the tools and various techniques will prove useful and illuminating, for anyone into BDSM. I also like that the authors stress the importance of having some experience with BDSM and being both a submissive and dominant.

However, while I did like this book a lot, I would've liked to have seen more focus on the physiological/psychological aspects of BDSM and how those aspects could be applied to carnal alchemy. Given that alchmy is a transformation, I would like to know how the authors factored in physiological changes and how those changes could be purposely used by either the dominant or submissive. The same applies to the psychological aspects.

Carnal Alchemy by Dawn/ Flowers

Carnal Alchemy re-introduces a powerful philosophy and magical technology to the contemporary world of western sexual magic. Sadomasochistic sexuality is among the least understood aspects of sexual expression. It is often tinged with overtones of the forbidden and mystery - all these things, as well as certain physiological aspects of it - make this a powerful for of sexuality to be combined with spiritual and magical aims. The text traces the historical roots of this tradition in ancient pagan rites of passage and of the agricultural cycle. But most of the text is devoted to the actual theory and practice of techniques of Sado-Shamanism or Sado-Magic in contemporary life.Paperback 86 pgs.

The academic sounding stuff has been well-covered by the other reviewers, so I can happily focus on my personal feelings about Carnal Alchemy.

Being someone who experiences the world in degrees of sensual richness, my most intense, most rich sensual experiences are also those which I have an in-depth understanding of. To both the beginner and the experienced BSDM enthusiast, the content of this book when understood opens the door to a baptism in Carnal Alchemy, an array and depth of sensory experience that well transcends the confines of paper and print. Not to mention new levels of intimacy with ones self and ones partner(s).

4.0 étoiles sur 5 sado magic 13 février 2014

One of the newest trends in the magical world is the practice of sado-magic or BDSM practices in magical operations. In theory it works rather well, for magic to be successful you must visualize you goal, raise the energy and direct it then let your spell go. Sexual and BDSM practices are just one way.

Of course BDSM is nothing really new. Ancient cultures had flogging rites both to purify the soul and raise energy levels . The Greek in their rites to Dionysus and Artwmis are two prime examples. The native Americans practiced piercing and suspension in order to achieve trances . Various Christian orders also practiced flagellation . Most recently it was brought into updated practice by Gerald Gardner and Alesister Crowley .

The author himself belonged to the Order of Triskellion. The order's main purpose was to bring BDSM practices into magical and mainstream acceptability. They have since folded and Robert North has opened up the New Flesh Palladium.

BDSM has extensive history in both Japan and Europe. Flogging or caning is sometimes called the English Vice. In Europe some famous people involved at various periods of time would include Marquise De Sade, Leon Sacher Masocher, Robert North and William Seabrook.

Marquise De Sade was a libertine who believed in developing his imagination. He was also into non consensual torture. Masocher who had a bad experience with an aunt discovered his love for pain. He was also into contracts and agreement. Seabrook practiced bondage and suspension techniques aimed at achieving the trance state. He wrote books about the Middle East and witchcraft.

The book next covers the two types of universes. The subjective is like our dream world and the objective is the physical universe. You can manipulate the objective in order to alter the subjective or manipulate the subjective in order to alter the subjective.

To those experienced in BDSM and magic the safety techniques and the creating of a sacred space will not be ground shaking but to the newbie may well be revolutionary .

Would have been nice to have a few sample rituals to serve as a guideline included. I wonder what deities beside Artemis and Dionysus work well with flagellation and bondage . Perhaps the book could be extended and this information included.

Another thoughtful and useful book from Flowers/Thorsson. My only quibble is that the book focuses exclusively on heterosexual coupling and does not address same sex sex magick. Perhaps Flowers thought this was outside of his experience, but it would be interesting to have a commentator as thoughtful and learned as Flowers broaden the analysis in this way.
