I keep seeing references to the Great Rite and "ritual sex." I was sure I read somewhere that Wiccans didn't have sex in rituals.

I'm not aware of the Great Rite being a required Alexandrian tradition, but if it was, they've probably gone the way of most Gardnerian groups these days- which is to do this symbolically or not at all unless the two are already a couple. Otherwise, it's completely absurd and empty, not to mention taking advantage of someone. Why would anyone want to have sex with someone whose doing it for reasons other than mutual attraction and romantic connection? How is that spiritual?

Pinch seems to be making the rounds of dead forums and proving just how ignorant and stupid he can be here on topix.

I guess every one needs a hobby. And pinches hobby is bigotry sand ignorance with a strong mix of stupidity added in to be really obnoxious.

Your very poor attempt at projection has been noted and laughed at.. Your evident bigotry on the other hand is very well noted. Thanks for playing. How can Pinch look even more of a fool and a troll.

<quoted text>So tell me bearing in mind the great rite as practised in some wiccan traditional initiations, is paganism/wicca a sexual religion?
**YAWN**

Bearing in mind you know nothing about Wicca or even Paganism in general. I will instead chose to laugh at your lame attempts at goading me into an argument. That is right up till you violate topix ToS.

<quoted text>Exactly CShine. Spot on my friend. For the sleazy, perverts and sex-starved individuals out there, that expect being a Witch and joining a Coven; means you have lots of sex and or orgy's: then Wicca is not for you.(sorry to disappoint). The Great Rite is a very sacred and special time for Wiccans (who have spent their life seeking their magical partner) who want to move on and have their own teaching coven. No PHYSICAL sex is involved in a TRUE coven. If that happens to any of you out there then leave and go! Within my religion sex is a symbology between the Goddess and the God. The Great Rite is so overated and its only given to those people, through years of study and spiritual development than can attain this blessing BB Jox
Ritual sex is the subject not just the great rite,ritual sex is used by many covens and it would be pressumptious for anyone to think that it is not also practised by soloists.Many wiccans see the old ways as the only way that is why there are so many abuse claims now coming to light within the pagan religion and i might add a very high proportion considering it is a minority religion.I think the ritual sex practised by pagans is what attracts the perverts and it can be argued that its origins began in the minds of perverts like Gardner,Sanders etc who saw the creation of the religion as a way to get their perverted ways into the mainstream and of course to get their way with many young stupid women.I think it is was a stroke of perverted genius to create such a heavy slant on the goddess,and then use it to get their way with them,the ultimate con against feminism.But there will always be stupid people around who are lonely and lost enough to join this so called religion and plenty of perverts to exploit it.Did you know Alex Sanders claimed to have been initiated/blooded by his grandmother when he was 7 years of age?I do not know if you have children but knowing how the abused can become abusers would you have been comfortable letting Alex and Maxine to care for your children?

So if you are"not aware" it can't be happening?It looks to me you know very little about what goes on.There are many covens who are secretive so how would you know? actually"not aware" says it all really.

Not a perv as you keep saying on the contrary.If you are not aware of Alexandrian bdsm style initiations try youtube "Alex Sanders initiation into the sacred mysteries" and you will see real pervs at work, i will not post the link it is unsuitable.To become even more aware of you religion especially Alexandrian there are many other youtube videos and interviews with Alex Sanders including a interview in which he claims to have been scourged by his grandmother at the age of seven and how his children were later to receive the same treatment.To become even more aware of your religion,you may wish to get yourself a copy of Gerald Gardners book of shadows and go straight to the chapter on "initiation"for more evidence of wiccan bdsm style sex initiations,if you have the stomach for home truths that is.Are you not aware or are you just in denial,i've done my homework now do yours,i can not make my mind up about you whether you are aware but choose to hide the truth for whatever reason or that you just have your head buried in the sand because you may not be able to handle the fact that your religion is not as pure and natural as you choose to believe,which is it???Are you going to continue with censorship or face up to the truth?????????? Truth is my sword.

The Great Rite is very sacred and often abused. If you are looking for easy sex or power it is Not for you.It is my belief that The Great Rite belongs only in private practice and never in a Coven setting or for Coven reasons. It is too easily abused in groups, not that it always is. Some Traditions have worked out ways of limiting the abuse.

We've all said this as many times over and over. This person is looking for their kink in the wrong place and gets all icky and weirdo about imagining things that don't go on in Wicca. Best just to ignore them and let the local authorities deal with em'.

AWWW Pinch is that all you are worried about.. An initiation. You poor little deluded fool..

I would treat your question with more seriousness, but as you have shown to be a bigot and a hate filled fool. As well as a troll..

All you will ever going to get is my contempt.

Could not agree more it is often abused but you are missing the point.The so called Great Rite is abuse,wake up dummy.
