SEX DRUG CULT
Berkeley Tribe (1969)—A new sex-pot church will attempt to bridge the gap between suburban swingers and hippy heads. Psychedelic Venus Church, chartered Nov. 24 by Shiva Fellowship, worships Aphrodite “as our symbol of hedonic pleasure, in her psychedelic aspect symbolizing direct spiritual revelation. We see her presiding over nude orgies of fucking and sucking and cannabis: truly Venereal religion.”
Membership is free for members of SFL and CHF, $5 for anyone else, and may be had by writing Rev. Jefferson Fuck Poland, Box 6196, SF.
"Half my friends are into sex, and the other half into dope," muses Rev. Fuck. "There’s not enough overlap, at least not up front. So Psychedelic Venus means we’ll try to combine the trips, get hedonism back together in the Old Time Religion."
