Necrophilia for Beginners
"May my quivering lips taste the coolness of yours as the warmth of my eternal love enters you and stays with you forever."
This is a book of vile and depraved uses and abuses of corpses, zombies and other undead. The book details methods of safely gaining access to corpses, and discusses the merits of fresh meat and decayed flesh. Ultimately, the book contends, the true power of necrophagia can be achieved through intercourse with the undead, whereupon dread powers can be obtained. The tome includes images like orgies atop a pile of rotting corpses, or the use of still-beating hearts or defleshed bones as sex toys. The author, Kerana Greenleigh, details her erotic episodes with over 20 male corpses, and her love for a lich. According to her, the erotic moment involved the entire atmosphere: the aura of death, the smell, the funeral home, the mourning, and all the trappings. It wasn't just about sexual stimulation, it was about a complete mindset. She enjoyed the odor of the fresh corpse of a young adult male, and even the blood that might come out of his mouth as she got on top of him. The basic idea, according to her, is that some people need ritual to "connect with certain specific forms of energy"---in this case, death energy, or the "current of transition." Necrophilia in this context is about the romance of death. Doing it right can enable one to share consciousness with the Angel of Death. To achieve this, one must find a mausoleum and bring certain required objects for performing a ceremony, such as a candle, some milk, and a knife. Written seventy years ago, this tome (and its two sequels, "Advanced Theories in Necrophilia" and "Expert Necrophilia") achieved early notoriety around Ta'akrinat, where it was originally released. Fifteen copies were made of the original tome written in the author's hand. All fifteen scribes who made the copies either went insane, or turned rather ghoulish. The book was quickly outlawed in Ta'akrinat, but allowed to prosper in Alisander. A necromancer named Wallen revised the text fifty years ago in Alisander, and fifteen copies were published.
