New Edition of Robert Anton Wilson’s Sex, Drugs And Magick Out Now

Hilaritas Press recently published a new edition of the late Robert Anton Wilson’s Sex, Drugs & Magick. Wilson explained in the preface to the 1987 edition:

By this, I mean simply that in orgasm everybody experiences, to some degree, an explosion/implosion of the normal ego and a melting, merging, “oceanic” sensation of at-one-ment.

“There are many types of drugs in the world – antibiotics; anesthetics; analgesics; narcotics; hypnotics; psychedelics; uppers and downers; dreamers and screamers – but here I am concerned with drugs that act centrally upon the higher nervous system and alter ego-definitions and perceived reality-tunnels. That is, drugs that produce “transcendental” or transpersonal states.

“It is obvious that sex and drugs together can lead to more extraordinary and paranormal trans-ego experiences than either sex or drugs alone.
