Seth the Ombite: Plate 11
Sexual Magick Since Crowley  As is perhaps is well known amongst those here gathered theOTO claims to have a secret capable of realizing the world-olddream of the Brotherhood of Man.. In general the secret issexual magick. But, other than in generalities, no-one has thecomplete version of the secret  perhaps such a thing never really existed. Those early exponents of the secret such as TheodoreReuse and the OTO, had pretty much stumbled on the secretand had some success in its use. Even so, its fairly obvious thatnobody was absolutely sure what the secret was or all of itsapplications. In many ways were still waiting for the full explana-tion, and perhaps thats how it should be  thats the sexualsecrets remain work in progress. But there are some commonly agreed definitions:Using the Masonic style grade system there are five basic catego-ries or if you like grades: VIIº = Adorative/Meditative (Sexual) Technique VIIIº = Autoerotic Sexual TechniqueIXº = Heteroerotic Sexual TechniqueXº = Generative Sexual TechniqueXIº = Homoerotic Sexual Technique
 This conspectus comes from the late Francis X Kings book Secret Rituals of the OTO . This book has found it wayonto the OTOs own index of forbidden books and costs a packet to buy. At its heart is a special technique of sexualmagick that was revealed to and discovered by Crowley. Thecore of the mystery as summarised by, Wilfred
 Talbot Smith(1885-1957) as
if you want to succeed you have to succeed.
 Mogg Morgan: Plate 12
Smith was defacto leader of Crowleys American followers, whoin 1930s Hollywood incorporated the Church of Thelema known to Los Angeles newspaper readers as the Purple Cult.His mentor in Crowleys AA organisation was G S Jones, Frater Achad. (Starr: 2003). The three main overt influences on Crowley sexual theorizing  were Theodor Reuss Victor Neuberg Rose Kelly Each of these being associated with three magical texts viz:1. Book of Lies2. Vision & the Voice,3. Liber Al Vel LegisEach of these associated with three different styles of sexualmagick viz:Magical CunnilingusHomoeroticism hence possible subtitle for this talk 100 years of sodomyBlood magick If we look at each of them in turn
Seth the Ombite: Plate 13
Magical Cunnilingus
(or as some authors would have it cunnilinctus)
Famously Reuss, visited Crowley in 1912 and accused him of publishing the central secret of the IX degree of the OTO.Indeed two years later, Crowley by his own account did publish itas chapter 69 of the
Book of Lie
. Theres a mystery there. (Starr2003:22)Kaphala 69  chapter 69 THE WAY TO SUCCEED  AND THE WAY TO SUCK EGGS!COMMENTATORARY 
 The key to the understanding of this chapter is given in thenumber and the title, the former being intelligible to allnations who employ Arabic figures, the later only to expertsin deciphering English puns.
Reuss founded his new OTO in 1906, a year after the deathof his Karl Kellner, his superior in then magical order. Heobviously felt liberated by the death of his teachers.
In aletter to David Curwen, quoted by (Starr 2003:22), Crowley wrote that the the secret as at that time possessed by theOrder was in a very crude and unscientific form and there was no explanation of the conditions which had to bebrought about to get it to work. Indeed the secret has beenin development ever since. Indeed it could be said that thesecret passed out of the stewardship of the OTO longbefore Crowleys death. Hence the reliance in 1986, bymembers of the caliphate OTO on popular works by
