As communist sexual magick became known outside the proletarian milieu —a development that started with the publication of texts such as The Sexual Struggle of Youth by Wilhelm Reich in the 1930s, and that has escalated since the 1960s—it has become identified with thrill-seeking bohemians and its real social base and material realities are often overlooked. The roles of sexuality in proletarian insurrection and mature communism, while related, are actually quite different, reflecting substantial differences in the forms of social organisation from which they currently do and in the future will emerge.
Coitus reservatus (coitus, “sexual intercourse, union” + reservatus, “reserved, saved”), also known as sexual continence, is commonly thought of as a form of sexual intercourse in which the penetrative partner does not attempt to ejaculate within the receptive partner, but instead attempts to remain at the plateau phase of intercourse for as long as possible avoiding the seminal emission. Another term used for this kind of relationship is the word karezza. This is clearly an insurrectionary practice that aims to create in an alienated world a taste of the ever-growing ecstasy we will all experience once communism is achieved. It is unlikely this practice will be continued in a mature communist society.
In post-capitalist sexual magick the most important features of the practice will revolve around the experience of subtle energies within one’s sensual embodiment, and the accessing of these energies both to enhance pleasure and to challenge our egotism into its dissolution. Thus, a fully realised communist sexual magick will cultivate ecstatic consciousness as well as increased collective awareness of the erotic consciousness that pervades one’s human embodiment as well as everything that contextualizes this embodiment.
Communist sexual magick may be practiced solo, in partnership, or in the shamanic rituals of groups. It must be remembered that genuine communist sexual magick is merely one aspect of a comprehensive disalienated species being—and that the sexual and erotic aspects of communism cannot be authentically engaged in within an alienated capitalist world.
In sum, communist sex magick is just one dimension of a world-historical path that is devoted and dedicated to the challenge of becoming aware, in every moment of our lives, of the supreme flow of the vast mass of humanity—i.e. communism is the movement of vast majorities unfettered by a state.
In communist sex magick we learn to love polysexuality above all else, activating our true transsexual nature and experiencing full-body orgasms. The term communist sex magick in this context refers to so much more than the set of techniques for cultivating a more fulfilling sexual relationships.
According to Chus Martinez – the outstanding modern practitioner of communist sex magick – the greatest pleasures are achieved when coitus is combined with breathing techniques, bio-energy, yoga and massage in group sex situations.
