Celtic Plant Magic: A Workbook for Alchemical Sex Rituals
Celtic Plant Magic
A Workbook for Alchemical Sex Rituals
Paperback      ISBN: 0892819243
The first working guide to the creation and application of plant-based compounds for ritual, magical, and healing purposes based on the Druidic tradition. • Provides step-by-step instructions for processing and transforming 70 plant energies and essences into working magical compounds. • Demonstrates the application of these compounds in a sex magic ritual. • Written by a practicing Druid with more than 40 years in the tradition. The ancient rites and lore of the Druids have always utilized a gentle alchemy to convert plant essences into potent compounds for working magical rituals. Through the respectful seduction of a plant's virtue, Druid alchemists are able to release and collect the latent energy, physical attributes, and magical capacities of that plant. The Druid then applies a series of processes to the acquired essence in order to maximize its power prior to its application in magical ritual. In this first-ever working guide to the principles, processes, and practical application of druidic plant magic, Jon G. Hughes shares the combined wisdom of his ancestral lineage. Celtic Plant Magic includes basic alchemical theory, instructions for creating all necessary tools, descriptions of magical compounds and their uses, and how to prepare oneself for working with plant essences. The healing and magical properties of more than 70 plants and trees are provided. The author then applies this information to a Celtic sex ritual, demonstrating how these compounds are used in specific magic and ritual practices. Celtic Plant Magic is a valuable manual for anyone wishing to harness the magical potential of plant energy.

Hooking Up: Sex, Dating, and Relationships on Campus
Hooking Up
Sex, Dating, and Relationships on Campus
Paperback      ISBN: 0814799698
[Listen to her NPR Interview](%22http://www.whyy.org/cgi-bin/newwebRTlookup.cgi%22) [The Sociology of "Hooking Up": Author Interview on Inside Higher Ed](%22http://www.insidehighered.com/news/2008/01/29/hookups%22) [Newsweek: Campus Sexperts](%22http://www.newsweek.com/id/112705/%22) [Hookup culture creates unfamiliar environment - to parents, at least](%22http://www.philly.com/dailynews/features/16589631.html%22) [Hooking Up: What Educators Need to Know - An op-ed on CHE by the author](%22http://chronicle.com/weekly/v54/i28/28a03201.htm%22) It happens every weekend: In a haze of hormones and alcohol, groups of male and female college students meet at a frat party, a bar, or hanging out in a dorm room, and then hook up for an evening of sex first, questions later. As casually as the sexual encounter begins, so it often ends with no strings attached; after all, it was “just a hook up.” While a hook up might mean anything from kissing to oral sex to going all the way, the lack of commitment is paramount. Hooking Up is an intimate look at how and why college students get together, what hooking up means to them, and why it has replaced dating on college campuses. In surprisingly frank interviews, students reveal the circumstances that have led to the rise of the booty call and the death of dinner-and-a-movie. Whether it is an expression of postfeminist independence or a form of youthful rebellion, hooking up has become the only game in town on many campuses. In Hooking Up, Kathleen A. Bogle argues that college life itself promotes casual relationships among students on campus. The book sheds light on everything from the differences in what young men and women want from a hook up to why freshmen girls are more likely to hook up than their upper-class sisters and the effects this period has on the sexual and romantic relationships of both men and women after college. Importantly, she shows us that the standards for young men and women are not as different as they used to be, as women talk about “friends with benefits” and “one and done” hook ups. Breaking through many misconceptions about casual sex on college campuses, Hooking Up is the first book to understand the new sexual culture on its own terms, with vivid real-life stories of young men and women as they navigate the newest sexual revolution.
