The structure of the Ordo Templi Orientis (O.T.O.), like that of Freemasonry, is based on a staged series of initiations or degrees. The essence of the Order is in its higher degrees; strictly speaking only members of these degrees are considered to be members of the O.T.O. proper.
Aleister Crowley: "Of the Eleventh Degree [of the Ordo Templi Orientis], its powers, privileges, and qualifications, nothing whatever is said in any grade. It has no relation to the general plan of the Order, is inscrutable, and dwells in its own palaces." (Liber CXCIV, 1919)
Crowley: "I am inclined to believe that the XIth degree is better than the IXth degree", diary entry 26 August 1916.
"Oh, how superior is the Eye of Horus to the Mouth of Isis!". Diary 1913 about a boy showered with "foaming seed": "While the other in his orgasm receives the waters." "Let it be no sin to us to have buggered the virle bum." "While the priest thrusts his thyrsus between boyish buttocks, All is accomplished; come Holy Dove!" http://bluepyramid.tripod.com/index/id4.html. "The Equinox" IV;2, Maine 1998, 405.
Regarding Crowley's antidemocratic, racist and mysanthropic writings, followers point out: "The reason [...] aspects of Thelema are omitted [in public discussion] indicates the actual problem with presenting Thelema as a religion and attempting to get Thelema sanctioned by the government or approved by the public: Thelema is ultimately in contrast to and transgressive of normative society. Thelema rejects the morals and values of normative society and acts to transgress and violate these norms. From the inclusion of intoxicants in ritual, to the positive view of sexuality, which frequently is seen as promoting promiscuity, to the pro–authoritarian and Nietzschian aspects of Thelema, normative society has much to reject in Thelema and conversely, Thelema encourages its adherents to reject most aspects of normative society.".

It seems obvious that there is no final decision as to "what the XI° is" and how "it" is been put "into" the many different O.T.O. systems.

In 1909 Aleister Crowley met the poet Victor Benjamin Neuburg "Frater Lampada
Tradam, Omnia Vincam" (6.5.1883-1940), and in December made use of him
as his magical partner, when he allowed himself to become
possessed by the Thelemic 'Devil' Choronzon, and receive "The Vision
and the Voice". In 1910 Crowley produced the "Bagh-I-Muattar" in which
the joys of homosexuality were poetically extolled (the book has been
widely reproduced in facsimile [e.g. the Morton Press edition] although
initially copyrighted by Marcelo Ramos Motta in his "Sex and Religion",
published in Nashville in 1981; this copyright was renewed by Martin P. Starr in
Neuburg was Crowley's sexual partner again at the end of 1913 in the "Paris Working", which was performed "to reconstitute the OTO."  On the basis of these experiments, Crowley wrote the homosexually-oriented sex-magical instructions for his branch of the O.T.O., the 'Mysteria Mystica Maxima'. So, for example there was not only a 'Venereal' version of "Liber C" (one dedicated to Venus), but also a Mercurial one. He now signed the more important O.T.O. documents, like the "Statutes", with an "XI°" as his title. Neuburg soon separated himself from his Master, and died on May 31st 1940. (More on Neuburg in Jean Overton Fuller's biography "The Magical Dilemma of Victor Neuburg", London, 1965 and 1990).
Crowley and Karl Germer, however, regarded
Russell's Chicago organisation
with envious eyes,  because Russell had managed to gather a crowd
of interested people around him, with his "short-cut to
initiation" — abbreviated rituals. Meanwhile Crowley's O.T.O. was fading out for lack
This 'short cut' method yielded 40 members in Denver, 20 in Long Beach, 75 in Los Angeles, 50 in San Francisco and 25 in San Diego.  Its techniques of sexual magic were based on Ida Craddock's concept of 'Heavenly Bridegrooms'.  Its members had to wear a special ring, which cost $15.
But in 1933 a schism broke out in Russell's ranks; a meeting was held on the 8th floor of 410 South Michigan Avenue in Chicago, with the object of forming a group consisting exclusively of homosexual men (the basis on which all contemporary XI° groups are founded). Eventually four groups could be distinguished as springing from Russell's initial foundation, which are hereafter enumerated as A, B, C, and D.
Franklin Thomas[C] The remaining members in Chicago, who had been an exclusively XI° group for some time, had held their meetings at 64 East Van Buren Street since 1941 independently of Russell; in the 1960s they returned to Michigan Avenue. Their rescension of the XI° was hierarchical (or magical?) in nature, and was further subdivided into degrees or grades; the XI°=0 was the highest level, and differed from Crowley's XI°.
The Chicago XI° system of degrees was based on the "Blocks" of Franklin Thomas,  which had been produced in 1936 with the assistance of C.F. Russells "Liber B[lock] W[orking]". Thomas himself lived in California, and was initiated into the XI° by Russell on June 30th 1936.
William C. Conway
Conway "Tau Lucifer II" (supposedly born on May 15th 1865) lived at Redondo Beach, California, and was inducted into the mysteries of the XI° by Franklin Thomas on January 1st 1945. Quite how this was accomplished with Conway remains obscure, as he was not himself homosexual. Of course, if the XI° had then included the lunar aspect of female menstrual blood, or been extended to anal intercourse with women, then it would have been perfectly possible for the XI° to be transmitted by women.

Michael Paul Bertiaux
On March 31st 1966, Bertiaux moved from Chicago to live at Wheaton in Illinois. In time the Chicago group [C] grew older, and shrank to barely a dozen members, or so it appeared to Bertiaux. As reading-material they used some books left to them by Ruby Jones (Charles S. Jones's widow). These books were later bought up by Marc Lully[anov] "Tau IV". The XI° people in the CC went to see Bertiaux's course of Theosophical lectures, where the youngest member Marc Lully made Bertiaux's acquaintance in January 1966, and became a member of '"La Couleuvre Noire'.
|In Michael Bertiaux's 16 degree system of the Ordo Templi Orientis Antiqua sexmagick starts with the VIII° (swords), IX° (cups), X° (wands), XI° (coins). Then there are the higher secrets related to the tattwas and the elements: XII° (prithiwitattwa), XIII° (apastattwa), XIV° (vayutattwa), XV° (tejastattwa), XVI° (akashatattwa), these latter four grades being purely homosexual degrees.|
The "Caliphate" has several times changed its views of the XI°
In his office of 'Caliph', Grady McMurtry reactivated the mysterious Eleventh Degree on July 28th 1978, when he put his signature to the XI° rituals drafted by Patrick King. King "Meithras" named these rituals 'The Rites of Shiraz', and incorporated the already-mentioned "Bagh-I-Muattar"  into his teachings, as well as Crowley's diaries, two chapters of "Liber Aleph", the Tower Card from the Book of Thoth, the 16th & 14th Aethers from Liber 418", Crowley's "Confessions", the "Cephaloedium Working", Chapter XI of "De Arte Magica" and "Liber Agape". His branch of the 'Caliphate' consisted of just three members at that time. 
Patrick KingIn 1977, Patrick King joined the 'Caliphate' and was immediately made the Official Representative in the City of San Francisco and personal 'Herald of the Caliph in the Outer'. Grady Louis McMurtry was a very well known opponent to Llee Heflin and the Level Press also he didn't much like "weak sisters" or in other words — homosexuals (according to King's entries in his diaries).
The T.O.T.O. is
based on intercourse during menstruation and is considered by some as the
true reversal of the IX° i.e. being a part of the same cycle. |
The Typhonian O.T.O. is concerned with effective transmissions and communications from 'outerspace' for the purpose of opening Gateways. The Typhonian 'deities' denote specific operations of psycho-physical alchemy which involve essences or elixirs secreted (thrown out and/or considered unclean) by the human organism.
The Typhonian XI° involves specific kalas that are entirely absent from the masculine organism. XI° = The magical use of the sexual energies via anal sex.
A collection of Material can be found here.
There is no comparison to other O.T.O. versions, essentially because there are no group rituals or ceremonies of initiation at any stage of the degree structure. The basis of initiation is the assimilation of direct magical and mystical working. It follows that all initiation is in effect self-initiation. There is a small amount of set gradework in the Typhonian O.T.O. However, the emphasis is on the initiate charting his or her own course. There is of course the experience of others to draw upon.
