May Lust and Sensuality Reign!

A Fine Day to Celebrate Your Carnality!

REALM OF SATAN debuts at SUNDANCE 2024

Magistra Barton, Maga Nadramia, and I were honored to attend and support Scott Cummings’ masterful first feature—a project first proposed to us 9 years ago. All good things to those who wait!

Satansplain #053 – Let’s You And Him Fight!

“Let’s you and him fight!” cry the onlookers who’d like to see Satanists spar with Christians for their public entertainment. Let’s not. Also: the Satanic calendar year, I-Theism, and a surprising email from Nigeria.

Not a didactic documentary, rather it is an effort to visually present our vital members engaging in their passions and their arts, woven together with the ritual traditions established by our founder, Anton Szandor LaVey. Cummings filmed over the course of several years, criss-crossing the USA, and also shooting in Canada and […]
