New translation of a book by Maria de Naglowska

The Light of Sex, by Maria de NaglowskaThe Light of Sex: Initiation, Magic, and Sacrament, by Maria de Naglowska, has been translated from the French with an introduction by Donald Traxler, and will be published by Inner Traditions later this month.

From the publisher:

Never before available in English, The Light of Sex expounds the tenets of the revolutionary religious system conceived by Maria de Naglowska–Russian mystic, occultist, esoteric high priestess, rumored lover of Julius Evola, and self-styled “Satanic Woman” of 1930s Paris. Centered on what she called the Third Term of the Trinity, in which the Holy Spirit of the classic Christian trinity is recognized as the divine feminine, her practices aim to bring about a reconciliation of the light and dark forces in nature through the union of the masculine and feminine. Revealing the spiritually transformative power of sex, she shows how–through mystic sexual practices and veneration of the feminine spirit–growth of the soul, regeneration of the world, and enlightenment of humankind can be achieved.

This mystic treatise and guide to the sexually charged rituals that were a cause célèbre in 1930s Paris was required reading for those seeking to be initiated into Naglowska’s magical group La confrérie de la Flèche d’Or [The Brotherhood of the Golden Arrow]. It reveals Naglowska to be a powerful visionary, whose psychic powers were legendary, and an important figure in the continuing evolution of the Western Mystery tradition.

This is the first in a series of titles to be translated from this author. I look forward to reading this when it becomes available.

Mythos Art DildoI suppose someone had to make one sooner or later. So, for your, um, pleasure: a Cthulhu-inspired dildo. Why not?

The Mythos Art Dildo is pictured here is blue, but it is “available in whatever colour scheme your mad brain can devise”, and includes a “clit stimulating tentacle tail”.

Given Lovecraft’s aversion to depicting anything even vaguely sexual in his stories, this appropriation of one of his most well known characters seems rather ironic. Happy (belated) 200th birthday, HP. What a treat.

Also on offer from Necronomicox (I swear I didn’t make that up) is the Xenomorph Art Dildo and the Zombi Art Dildo (e not included).

They’re not cheap. They retail at 245$US each from Elastica Engineering, though if you buy one before August 31st, 2010 you’ll save 10%.
