This chapter explores the proliferation of a whole new array of sexual magic at the turn of the third millennium, including cybersex and Chaos Magic. It explains that Chaos Magic uses sexual magic as one of many ways to shatter fixed ways of thinking, and to unleash the power of Chaos as radical freedom from all social, religious, or institutional structures, and that the rise of various forms of Chaos Magic occurred at roughly the same time as the birth of the intellectual movements of postmodernism and deconstruction. The chapter argues that the rise of Chaos Magic and various forms of cybermagic brought together many of the recurring themes which have appeared throughout the history of modern sexual magic.
