Priapus Rex is a gay spiritual warrior, brujo, healer, diviner, herbalist, scrivener, meditator, geek, and part-time urban monk. He practices the Art of Peace along an Unnamed Path. In his spare time, he explores the Sacred Male Mysteries through meditation, gay tantric sex, solosexuality, nudist nature walks, intimate male touch, swimming nude in the ocean, and enjoying the company of other spiritual seekers.

Below, you’ll find an on-going list of books, divination oracles, and resources I read or use in my practice. These serve as departing points for any spiritual seeker, or guideposts along the spiritual journey.
