[…]a man doesn’t care one hoot if you look “natural,” so long as you look sexy. I have proven many times over that the “painted hussy” will steal the show from the more “tasteful” girls. Many years ago, I had my witches wearing false eyelashes with heavy eye make-up, ** and though they were always criticized by other women as looking “artificial,” they got all the attention from the men. When a man sees a make-up job that is blatantly and obviously make-up, he is automatically flattered, because he knows that the woman is trying to look sexy. Men like to see a sexy-looking woman and it pleases a man to think that a woman is knocking herself out trying to please him.

Anton Szandor LaVey, The Satanic Witch, p. 42

Seriously my favorite book ever written. Don’t care if I’m a dude.

If any of this is true, it’s no wonder her and LaVey made such a good couple.

Rest in peace.

Most human interaction, being nothing more than small talk and games, is no waste of time to those so engaged. It is, in fact, necessary to their survival, for they would die of boredom otherwise. To the Maker, the archetype, the self-sustainer, human interaction is usually a waste of the most precious thing in his vital existence: time. Time is spent in “being liked” could better be devoted to liking being.

The official stand of the Church of Satan on the subject of drugs is vehement opposition! Asking me to provide you with drugs is like asking a hippie to give an eulogistic speech on the merits of big business.

"What does Satanism mean to you?" | by UnderworldAmusements

A great collection of brief words from a couple of familiar faces.

If you don’t know who Kevin I. Slaughter is by now, do some research. His design, video, and audio works are excellent.

The carnival was the predecessor to the burlesque world - this all tied together, the psychic, the hypnotic… That gave me a good foundation for playing the girlie shows, my opportunity to play for female dancers. I also played midway music and worked the sex shows.

The Eve of May has been memorialized as the night that all of the demons, specters, afreets, and banshees would come forth and hold their wild revels, symbolizing the fruition of the spring equinox.

I consider drug abuse a polite alternative to suicide. Perhaps one day euthanasia will be be made attractive enough and the drug problem will be solved.

Satan represents man as just another animal, sometimes better, more often worse than those that walk on all-fours, who, because of his “divine spiritual and intellectual development,” has become the most vicious animal of all!
