What would sex be without rituals, and what would rituals be without sex? Interpretative paths seem well threaded: magic and darkness should drip from every film like candle wax on the skin of a victim trapped by the witches. But, let us try to slightly broaden the logic of the ritual, because just as sexuality is unpredictable and diverse, so is ritual. We can attempt to play with ritual convention and how to refer to the ritual clichés that define what the ritual might be. We invite you on a not-so-dark journey through the fascinating world of rituals, games, repetitive gestures, and even wrestling, because virtually every ritual is important if it brings us closer to ourselves and satisfies our desires.
