Chapter Summary

This chapter presents a factual presentation of the theories and practices of four of the most important groups and orders devoted to sexual magic in the twentieth century, based upon direct study of the relevant primary sources. The author's description of the rituals and procedures will therefore be based mainly on the Corpus as edited by Agape and some other documents published by the same editor. The first volume of the Corpus, called "Preparation" begins with the statutes and articles of the Ordine Egizio. The second volume, called La Sofia teaches how to reach the state of mag and discusses the possibility of consciously separating one's "soul" from one's body and directing it wherever one wishes. The third volume, Del separando magico, gives exact instructions pertaining to the practices and rituals by which one can give birth to a "glorious body", as vehicle for the voluntary separation of one's "soul".
