Leilah Wendell, curator of the House of Death in New Orleans, is quite public about her love of corpses. She describes herself as a “necromantic” rather than a necrophile and has written about the distinction in The Necromantic Ritual Book. In this interview she talks about making love to the dead, and explains how her mausoleum ritual of communion with the dead allows her to commune with the spirit of death itself.
