This thoroughly researched, profusely illustrated book explains how people in all societies through the ages have used "sex magic" to improve their love lives and their money luck. Sex magic, when properly invoked, holds a surprisingly strong promise that the practitioner's wishes will be granted. Ashley covers sensational tales of incubi and succubi, spells and charms, superstitions, witchcraft, ritual magic, magical recipes, literature about sex and the supernatural (including the complete text of the vampire tale, Carmilla). Also included is a unique listing of more than two hundred films featuring prominent sex and magic themes.
