You've fired my curiosity a bit Jam, in what way do you mean "Pagans basically worship idols"?

Umm gods... somehow pagans gets upset when i say idols i think. Maybe because it feels like belittling it. But its like worshipping gods like "Norse gods" "Greek gods" basically.

Well, I 'm afraid you're gong to be disappointed, Jamni 90. "Sex magic" is mostly about gender polarity and ensuring good crops, at least in Wicca. It's actually pretty tame.  That's about all I can tell you.

I suggest you find some good, basic books on the Craft and go from there.

Well its this stereotype that one would say its some demonic stuff. If some people are aware of some typical movies where it looks like they are the bad guys. But i was more or less curious to hear what wicca's view point on this are in general.

I know that pagans basically worships idols.

And Wicca deals with spells and magic.

So... its more just to hear what your view point is. Not trying to ask something just to be cruel or anything.

Excellent question, if it's treated with respect and decorum and an understanding that this is a public forum.  With that in mind tell us why you ask, then we can decide if this is an appropriate topic.

Is that some stuff couples do when they really like each other.

Or is it something that one can practice if they wish.

Just kinda heard of it. Some typical mythical stuff too it.

I just imagine some Pentagram circle or some stuff like that.

Have read little about it. Just wondering what you think?

Does it bother you when other people are closeted?

no why would I? ^^
its just my personal feeling of responsibility, I think people should be free to follow their own goals and feelings etc
I happen to feel the same way.  But I've met a number of people who think we need more pagans speaking out to obtain "respectability", whatever that is. They see it as selfish on the part of closeted people because their invisibility increases the burden of those who are out.  In other words, closeted witches aren't doing their fair share.

An HPS said something I rather liked.  The Craft is and always has been an outlaw way of life.  Do we want the so called respectability that we might get by being mainstream?  Might we also lose something of our identity if we pedal our religion in such a way that the public would accept us?
Pat of my personal belief system is that I let other people make their own decisions.  If they want to be in or out of the closet that is their business.  NOT MINE.  I have enought to tend to with my own life. 

As for the pagan path always being an outlaw ay of life...  Not really.  Like with everything else, there is an ebb and flow to paganism.  I think we're seeing a rise that will subside again. Just like we're seeing the decline of Christianity.  The simple fact is that the Christians were hunted and killed same as the witches, the Jews, the Buddists, the Taoists, the....  fill in the blank.  People suck and always want to persecute those who don't comform to what they think is the "right" way.

Celtic Epona, I find something in your post confusing. High and low magic are just descriptors that indicate whether the magic's intent is to unite us with the divine, or to make changes in the mundane world. (Admittedly the line can be fine but that's a whole other discussion).

It sounds like you're saying that "high" and "low" put value judgements on those types of magic.  Did I get that right?

I don't see it as a value judgement.  The way i see it is:  To connect to the divine makes changes in the mundane world (namely us and how we respond to it).  To use magic to make changes in the mundane world brings us to a greater understanding/connection of/to the divine.  It is kind of like asking where a circle begins and ends.
Hopefully that makes sense.

as an addendum to your comment, though as it has become a plural it should be written as
