This is a book of sexual magicks in both theory and practice fromthe feminine power zones and from their own points of view. Very littlehas been written on this. It is a compilation composed of the text andart of sixteen practicing female magickians through which the vitalcharacter of a Babalon is explored.Both the elder and younger Babalons write here in order to expandupon this almost taboo subject. Linda Falorio, one of the writers within,says “Men, read on if you want to know our deepest secrets.”This book focuses on the ‘what,’ the ‘who’ and the ‘how’ of thepractice.The materials are mutli–generational, multi–cultural and multi–systematic, though with a strong emphasis on Thelemic.No ‘right’ way is posited. Often seen ‘shoulds’ are replaced by anethic that values Choice.Being a Babalon is both a spiritual and social challenge. There areno more optimal conditions outside of an open heart and mind. She ismuch more than any sexual orientation or specific sexual act.Although there is no definitive word or image which captures thetotality of what it means to be a Babalon, her very nature speaks toChange. Babalon spins and the walls between worlds revolve. Herspinning gives form to the very womb of life. She rides upon a crestthat peeks into the heavens, and descends into the very heart of hell.The papers and images in this book document this journey, and thehowling of women will now make itself heard! - 6x9 edition - 8x10 also available.
