Unleashing the Beast Aleister Crowley, Tantra and Sex Magic in Late Victorian England Hugh Urban Ohio State University If this secret [of sexual magic], which is a scientific secret, were perfectly understood, as it is not by me after more than twelve years' almost constant study and experiment, there would be nothing which the human imagination can conceive that could not be realized in practice. -- Aleister Crowley[1] What is peculiar to modern societies is not that they consigned sex to a shadow existence, but that they dedicated themselves to speaking of it ad infinitum, while exploiting it as the secret.
