Anyone have a count on the number of "side degrees" there are in Freemasonry?

I know of a few, which I believe are considered side degrees:

Hillbilly Degree
Order of Turtles
M.O.V.P.E.R.
R.O.J.

Any others? or are those listed above not considered side degrees?

There are a number of appendant bodies which are more well-known, including: Scottish Rite, York Rite, Royal Arch, Order of the Secret Monitor, Societas in Rosicruciana (sp?). Each of these has their own degrees.

Those are not normally considered side degrees of Freemasonry, although the Hillbilly Degree and Royal Order of Jesters could possibly be considered side degrees in the Shrine. The Mystic Order of Veiled Prophets of the Enchanted Realm is technically an appendant body (like the Shrine and Tall Cedars of Lebanon). The Turtle Degree is sometimes conferred as side degree in the Shrine, although it's not an official degree of the Shrine.

"Side Degrees" usually refer to additional degrees within an actual Masonic system. Examples are the degrees of Royal Ark Mariner, Order of the Secret Monitor, Red Branch of Eri, etc.

There are numerous degrees in Masonry once a member has attained the third or Master Mason Degree.

A few (and ONLY a few) are discussed here:
