Dating apps have put a hex on sex.

Today’s hookup technology has made the process of finding love lose its special something, argues author and filmmaker Michael William West in his new book, “Sex Magicians: The Lives and Spiritual Practices of Paschal Beverly Randolph, Aleister Crowley, Jack Parsons, Marjorie Cameron, Anton LaVey, and Others.”

The solution to our boring dating lives? Just a sprinkle of “sex magic,” the Paris-based author told The Post.

He looks to occult figures of history for guidance on better lovemaking.

There’s something spicy about the way they blend their niche, countercultural religiosity with the way they carry themselves through the secular world, West writes. That combination could just be the source of their “magical” sexual abilities.

It also helps that these sexy figures buck Christian morals, which deem sex outside of marriage to be taboo, according to West.

Take Crowley — the famous British occultist was notorious for his drug use, bisexuality and lively sex life (often with female prostitutes). He was able to use his charm and self-identification as a prophet to create a magical-seeming allure to his physical being, West writes.
