4.0 out of 5 stars good intro to Western Sex Magick March 28 2004
Format:Paperback
Kraig's book is the best introduction to Western Sex Magick I have read. In fact, I think it is one of the best books on magick, period. He cuts through all the jive and gibberish and gets down to cases about magickal practice. His writing is straghtforward, clear, and easy to read.
He discusses the history of Western Sex Magick (WSM) early in the book, and I find his grasp of this history to be interesting and enlightening. Considering the great deal of obfuscation, ego trips, and other impediments to a clear transmission of knowledge in these areas, I find his work to be refreshing and practical. He is not elitist, didactic, or sectarian in his approach, and discusses difficult subjects such as the use of S&M in magick openly and honestly.
This is not a tour de force of all magick, nor is it intended to be. It is a good introduction to the use of erotic energy in magickal/spiritual practice from a primarily Western standpoint. Tantra and Taoist practices are mentioned as they relate to these practices, but are not the focus of the book. There is a nice glossary and a seven page Bibliography, in addition to the other resources mentioned throughout the text.
Someone with experience in other areas of magick seeking to add erotic energy to their current practices would find this book helpful. I don't know that I would consider this an entry-level book for magick in general. Having explored various practices for over 30 years, I find it difficult to approach these things as a complete beginner, although I am by no means an expert. My experiences tend to agree with his. I am comfortable with Kraig's ideas, and my "inner compass" leads me to trust him. I liked the book, and while I didn't agree with everything in it, found it to have a high proportion of useful information.
Of course, all the usual caveats apply. As with all powerful technologies, one must understand and respect one's tools in order to use them safely. (no humor intended)

Format:Paperback
Kraig's repetitive, formulaic sentence structure became worse than boring, for me, when he wrote about how to perform rituals. At the end of each ritual we readers are told that we "may" proceed to orgasm, and in the next sentence, if I remember correctly (I believe the book is in my basement storage area waiting for a yard sale), we are told we "may have multiple orgasms." Oh thank you for your permission, Donald Kraig. After reading this instruction repeatedly, always the same sentences, I began to wonder what exactly Kraig was going for here... did he just not know what else to do? Was I detecting some sort of enjoyment of cold instruction on these hopefully warm and hot matters? Hmm. Laughing at this is about all I recall from my experience of the book. As a fiery-sea HPS who does not like to be told what to do, never mind when I "may" be "permitted" to do it, I'd instead recommend seeing if you like any of the following ideas:

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Introduction to the study of Sex Magick March 16 2003
Format:Paperback
I am very impressed with this book! I found "Modern Sex Magick" very difficult to put-down. I am a little surprised that certain sections are espoused as more controversial than others (e.g., Polyamorous Sex Magick being more controversial than Homosexual Sex Magick)--however, society is weird like that.... Regardless, the material in this book would be quite useful to nearly anyone--not just Magickians or sex magick practitioners.
Personally, I learned a lot about Sex Magick from this individual's research of the subject. The author helps dispel many of the rumors and much of the disinformation about the practice of sex magick. I did not read about the subject for many years, due to misinformation from an organization I formerly studied with (and the silly claims against Sex Magick, in the back of the original "Light of Egypt" books associated with that organization), so this subject is new to me--although "Sex" and "Magick" separately are quite familiar subjects.
Considering the fact that I have experienced some indoctrination against the practice of Sex Magick, I truly enjoyed the author's honest, helpful attempt to reveal the truth about Sex Magick and also give other perspectives (e.g., from various women involved in the practice), by including essays from other practitioners, instead of just espousing one theory or perspective on the subject.
I found the rituals to mostly follow the same, basic format, but the book is very interesting and very informative--especially, for a person just beginning to research this system of Magick. The book is well-illustrated, comprehensive and full of common sense applications of different styles of Sex Magick (including safe explanations and illustrations of S&M practices).

Thus, a magician appreciates that each act he or she does will have a response in the universe. A magician will accept or deal with any problems he or she creates. It's called "personal responsibility." &quote;
