After initial writing sessions between Kiedis and Frusciante to arrange song structures, the band and Rubin relocated to a sprawling bedroom Laurel Canyon mansion, once owned by magician Harry Houdini, which was supposedly haunted. Recording sessions were relatively quick compared to past albums; tracking was completed in under a month. All band members, except for Chad Smith, lived within the mansion throughout the process.
The house was so large that Kiedis was able to set up and track all of his vocals from the comfort of his bedroom. Nonetheless, his guitar work on BSSM was nothing short of virtuosic. An early 60s Fender Stratocaster was his weapon of choice, and he would often plug his guitar directly into the mixing board, with a Boss DS-2, Big Muff and an Ibanez WH10 applied for some dirt and expression.

Seventeen of those songs made the album's final cut. The album's singles contained four outtakes from the album sessions as b-sides. Among those songs were the instrumental "Fela's Cock", a cover of the Stooges ' " Search and Destroy ", and "Sikamikanico" which would also appear on the Wayne's World soundtrack" in On October 3,the song was performed for the first time ever at the request of guitarist Josh Klinghoffer for his 40th birthday.

Are you kidding me? When every single kid at the show sings a song, that's our next single. To promote the album in Europe, Kiedis and Frusciante both agreed they would make Album) trip. Kiedis recalled of the situation: "He had such an outpouring of creativity while we were making that album that I think he really didn't know how to live life in tandem with that creativity. Blood Sugar Sex Magik was well received by critics, who praised the Chili Peppers for not overpowering the listener with heavy metal guitar riffs as their previous album had.
John Frusciante's guitar is less overpoweringly noisy, leaving room for differing textures and clearer lines, while the band overall is more focused and less indulgent. Devon Powters of PopMatters said that "in one funked-out, fucked up, diabolical swoop, Blood Sugar Sex Magik reconfigured my relationship to music, to myself, to my culture and identity, to my race and class".

And it wasn't purely a boy's club in the moshpit—many females bought into the mayhem, stripping down to their bras and flinging themselves about madly as the band tore through 'Higher Ground', 'Suck My Kiss', and 'Give it Away', which was Goth-ed up by Frusciante when he added a riff from Black Sabbath 's ' Sweet Leaf '.
Blood Sugar Sex Magik began receiving heavy radio play and massive sales in the middle of their U. Frusciante, who wanted the Chili Peppers to remain in the underground music scene, entered a state of denial and depression. Even onstage, there was a much more serious energy around him. Onstage tension began to grow between Kiedis and Frusciante. We came offstage and John and I got into it. The Pumpkins were, therefore, replaced with Pearl Jam. Their first show with Nirvana was at the L.
A Sports Arena. Kiedis described their act as "raw energy; their musicality, their song selection, they were like a chain saw cutting through the night".
