Aleister Crowley's sex cult latest craze among celebs

   Apr 24, 2:49 pm

London, Apr 24 (ANI): Rich and famous celebrities are now turning to a sexy new cult, which is centred around red-hot kinky rituals.

Wild child Peaches Geldof is the latest star to follow the OTO religion and has its initials tattooed on her arm, the Daily Star reported.

The 24-year-old shared her sizzling obsession on Twitter, sparking talk of a number of stars linked to the organisation.

She urged her thousands of fans to buy books by Satanist Aleister Crowley, leader of the controversial Ordo Templi Orientis sect.

Famed for his love of sadomasochistic rituals, the English author promoted sex with multiple male and female partners, as well as the use of cocaine and heroin.

He practised black magic and revelled in a debauched lifestyle.

Now many of Hollywood's hottest stars are rumoured to have associations with OTO.

Chart-topping rapper Jay-Z is allegedly linked to the religion, as is rapper Kanye West and music star Adam Lambert.

Jay-Z was spotted in a T-shirt with the motto Do What Thou Wilt, an OTO saying encouraging people to do whatever they choose, especially when it comes to sex.

Commentators have questioned whether Jay-Z's hit clothing range Rocawear features OTO links.

Part of the collection includes the "all- seeing eye" triangle and the Egyptian Eye of Horus symbol, which are both frequently referenced in Crowley's books.

Former sex addict Russell Brand, 37, has been quoted as saying he admired one of Crowley's free-loving -teachings, while West and Lambert have sported outfits with OTO symbols.

Perhaps most surprising of the sect's possible celebrity fans is Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman's daughter Isabella, who hinted that she could be interested in OTO.

She shared a photo of her own Aleister Crowley -inspired tattoo of the Eye of Horus.

Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page routinely took part in OTO rituals and was reportedly so fascinated by Crowley that he bought the Satanist's former home, Boleskine House, on the edge of Loch Ness in Scotland.

Even The Beatles included Crowley on the cover of their 1967 album 'Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band'. (ANI)
