^ In occult lore, a lewd male demon or goblin which takes on the illusory appearance of a male human being and seeks sexual intercourse with women, usually while they are asleep.

.Victims may have been experiencing waking dreams or sleep paralysis.^ Sometimes this entity may also be experienced as choking the victim, or just pushing forcefully on the chest, or even biting into the shoulder, or twisting limbs.

.Also, nocturnal arousal, orgasm or nocturnal emission could be explained by the idea of creatures causing an otherwise guilt-producing and self-conscious behavior.^ Because of the weight given to sexual sin in the Middle Ages, nocturnal arousal, orgasm or nocturnal emission were explained away by the legends of creatures causing an otherwise guilt-producing and self-conscious behavior.

[4] Alternatively, the influence of incubi could also have been invoked to explain otherwise "unexplainable" pregnancies out of wedlock.
.Purported victims of incubi could have been the victims of sexual assault by a real person.^ Especially mischievous and clever incubi made themselves appear in the persons of real people — a husband, a neighbor, a friend, the handsome young stablehand.

^ The main definition is a demon who rapes women while they sleep, but the definition in their thesaurus was "a nightmare."

A friend or relative may have assaulted the victim in her sleep. The victims and, in some cases the clergy,[5] may have found it easier to explain the attack as supernatural rather than confront the idea that the attack came from someone in a position of trust.

Ancient and religious descriptions

.One of the earliest mentions of an incubus comes from Mesopotamia on the Sumerian kings' list, ca.^ Incubus has a song for everything, and is one of the best bands to smoke to...not to mention Sublime.

2400, where the hero Gilgamesh's father is listed as Lilu (Lila).[6] .It is said that Lilu disturbs and seduces women in their sleep, while Lilitu, a female demon, appears to men in their erotic dreams.^ An mythical male demon who seduced females in their sleep.

^ Succubus is a demon in female form, specialized in seducing men.

^ An mythical female demon who seduced males in their sleep.

[7] .Two other corresponding demons appear as well: Ardat lili, who visits men by night and begets ghostly children from them, and Irdu lili, who is known as a male counterpart to Ardat lili and visits women by night and begets from them.^ The corresponding demon who appears to men is the succubus.

^ BRUXSAS Portuguese succubi who seduce wanderers and also copulate with other demons.

^ An mythical male demon who seduced females in their sleep.

These demons were originally storm demons, but they eventually became regarded as night demons due to mistaken etymology.[8]
.Debate about the demons began early in the Christian tradition.^ "I know there are countless women that this (demons sexually abusing them) is happening to, because every Christian woman I have spoken to about it (sex demons), 9 out of 10 it has happened to."

St. Augustine touched on the topic in "De Civitate Dei" (The City of God), admitting that there were too many attacks by incubi to deny them. .He stated, "There is, too, a very general rumor, which many have verified by their own experience, or which trustworthy persons who have heard the experience of others corroborate, that sylvans and fauns, who are commonly called incubi, had often made wicked assaults upon women."^ INCUBUS AND SUCCUBUS Incubus and Succubus Keywords: Incubi, Succubi, Incubus, Succubus Preface I have talked to many women about their experiences with devils and know a few things about them from personal experience (my experiences started when I was about 12).

^ A real female or male person who has a condition requiring them to feed off of the pranic energy of other humans or derive energy from natural forces.

^ Vampire lifestyler: A non-vampyre who who adopts " fictional vampire imagery and trappings into his/her personal life, " often patterning themselves after a fictional character.

[9] However, despite this affirmation, questions continued about the reproductive capabilities of the demons. .800 years later Thomas Aquinas would lend himself to the ongoing discussion, stating, “Still if some are occasionally begotten from demons, it is not from the seed of such demons, nor from their assumed bodies, but from the seed of men taken for the purpose; as when the demon assumes first the form of a woman, and afterwards of a man; just as they take the seed of other things for other generating purposes .” [10] Thus it became generally accepted that incubi and succubi were the same demon, but able to switch between male and female forms.^ Succubus is a demon in female form, specialized in seducing men.

^ SUCCUBI - demonic sexual attacks on males, may be caused by the same as Incubi above .

^ They sometimes take other forms as well.

Incubi are sometimes said to be able to conceive children. .The half-human offspring of such a union is sometimes referred to as a cambion.^ The offspring of a incubus and a human was a deformed creature of some sort: deformed children, witches , demons , and half-human, half-animal creatures.

The most famous legend of such a case includes that of Merlin, the famous wizard from Arthurian legend.[5]
According to the Malleus Maleficarum, exorcism is one of the five ways to overcome the attacks of incubi, the others being Sacramental Confession, the Sign of the Cross (or recital of the Angelic Salutation), moving the afflicted to another location, and by excommunication of the attacking entity, "which is perhaps the same as exorcism." [14] On the other hand, the Franciscan friar Ludovico Maria Sinistrari stated that incubi "do not obey exorcists, have no dread of exorcisms, show no reverence for holy things, at the approach of which they are not in the least overawed."[5]

Regional variations

The Trauco is said to be responsible for unwanted pregnancies, especially in unmarried women.[16] .Perhaps another variation of this conception is the "Tintín" in Ecuador, a dwarf who is fond of abundant haired women and seduces them at night by playing the guitar outside their windows; a myth that researchers believe was created during the Colonial period of time to explain pregnancies in women who never left their houses without a chaperone, very likely covering incest or sexual abuse by one of the family's friends[17].^ It was another hunter,” he said, sick at the thought, especially since those thoughts strayed immediately to Gordon who would have gladly done away with Sam, “Friend of his even,” Dean added, “No one ever knew why.

The Incubus

.SPEAKING in after years about that period of his life, Lloyd Merriwether, being a New Englander and thus congenitally given to dissecting his motives and reactions and screwing them into test-tubes, used to add, by way of psychological comment, that it wasn’t the big things that mattered in a crisis, but the small ones; and that, by the same token, it was not the big things one missed when one was away from that blending of hackneyed efficiency and pinchbeck mechanical process called Civilization, but the petty, negligible ones—those that have grown to become second nature, almost integrally part of one’s self, like one’s eyes, or ears, or nose.^ To be able to do his 'thing', Incubus was presumed to come upon his physical form in one of two ways: he either reanimated a human corpse, or he used human flesh to create a body of his own, which he then endowed with artificial life.

Say! It must have sounded funny, back yonder, in the heart of Africa, with the sun rays dropping straight down from a brazen sky to shatter themselves upon the hard-baked surface into sparkling, adamantine dust—to rise again in a dazzling vapor.

Nor was I afraid of any stray natives popping out of the bush. I’ve always been friends with them. I am not an adventurer—seeking for the rainbow, the pretty little rainbow that usually winds up in a garbage can—not an explorer, nor a soldier. I am a businessman, pure and simple, and I needed the natives to bring me rubber and ivory and gold-dust, while they needed me to get them their particular hearts’, and stomachs’, desires—American cloth, and beads, and pocketknives, and Worcester sauce, and Liverpool trade gin, and rifles that didn’t shoot and similar truck. Of course, I did ‘em brown whenever I had half a chance, and I guess they returned the compliment. So we had mutual respect for each other, and I wasn’t scared of them—not the slightest bit.
.As soon as I discovered that my Fangs had stampeded, I took stock of my belongings, and I saw that they had not taken much—in fact, nothing except the little waterproofed pack which contained my toilet articles, mirror and razor and shaving-brush and comb and all the rest.^ All my 5 R belong to this!

Struck me as funny at the time. I said to myself that those Fangs were fools—damned fools. They might have helped themselves to some of my other packs as easy as pie.

God only knows. .I told you before that they’re half children and half apes.^ In this challenging but addicting game, you must smash the dream creatures before they reach the portal to the real world.

So I had a good laugh at their expense.
Well—I didn’t laugh much a few days later.
THERE I was, then, in the crawling, stinking heart of Africa, all alone, and—for the moment, at least—cheerful enough. For I am a businessman, and I told myself that those fool negroes had saved me a tidy little penny by bolting, since I owed them a month’s wages. .Too, I was well supplied with everything a fellow needs in the wilderness, from quinine to matches, from tabloid beef to—oh, tabloid fish cakes.^ Well now online they have everything you need for the afterlife.

My health, but for occasional, woozy fever spats—they being part of Africa’s eternal scenery and accepted as such—was first-rate, and my canoe a snug, comfy little affair that pulled as easy as a feather.
I decided that I would just drift along down the Ogowe River to the estuary, and no hurry—not a darned bit of hurry. The Ogowe is not a treacherous water; the channel is clearly marked most of the way, and the mangroves sit rather well back—like hair on the brow of a professional patriot, eh?
As to the pack with my toilet articles? Well, what did it matter? .There weren’t any women kicking around loose in that part of the Dark Continent to care or fuss if my hair was long or short, my complexion smooth or stubbly, my fingernails round or square.^ There was an envelope with my name written in long sweeping calligraphy.

So, I repeat, I was quite cheerful—for a few seconds, perhaps minutes.
.BUT, almost immediately, I knew that my cheerfulness was faked—faked by myself, subconsciously, for my own, private, especial benefit; almost immediately, I sensed that vague, crushing presentiment of coming disaster I told you about—and my nerves began to jump sideways and backward, like a whisky-primed Highland Scot when he hears the whir of the war pipes.^ Then, when we realized that you were about to screw over almost every Democrat running for the House of Delegates, we became concerned.

Of course, being a sensible fellow, and not imaginative, I tried to crystallize my nervous presentiment. Couldn’t, though. It was too subtle, too elusive—too damned African, to put it in the proverbial nutshell. .All I was sure of was a sort of half-feeling—and I’ve had it before and since—that Africa was not a continent, but—oh, a being, a sinister, hateful, cruel, brooding monster, with a heart and soul and desires—rotten desires, mostly—and that this Africa hated me, because I was white, because I was an interloper, because I had no business there except—well, dollars and cents.^ It was like there was some sort of magnetic pull emanating from him, I could feel it coming through the fucking door.

Silly, too, since I needed Africa for the benefit of my bank-account and the encouragement of my creditors.
Never mind, though.
I just couldn’t crystallize that damned, sneaking, ghastly presentiment, and so, knowing even at the time that it was a lie, I said to myself:
“Fever, old man! Go ahead, and do the regular thing!” I did. I dosed myself with quinine and Warburg’s and a wee nip of three-star just to top it off. Then I packed my canoe with a fairly steady hand, jumped in, balanced it and pushed off, gliding between the banks of the Ogowe River.
.REMEMBER my telling you that I had intended drifting along slowly, that I was in no hurry?^ Tell me what you think about my website, send me some feedback .

We ll, the moment my paddle fanned the water, I reconsidered, subconsciously. I decided, again subconsciously, that I was in a devil of a hurry, that I must get away from the hinterland, from the Congo, from the whole of Africa.
I said to myself that, arrived at the coast, I would catch the first mail-boat bound for Liverpool and then on to America. No—I wouldn’t even wait for the mail-boat. I would go straight aboard the first dirty tramp steamer that came wallowing up from the south, and beat it home. Home! That’s what I needed! And rest, rest—and a white man’s big, crimson drink in a white man’s proper surroundings—with white-aproned saloonkeepers and stolid policemen and, maybe, a night-court magistrate or two all complete. I wanted to be shut for a while from this stinking, brooding, leering Africa. I wanted America, the white man’s land, the white man’s blessed, saving vices and prejudices.
How I longed for it, longed for it as if it were a woman, as I paddled down the river! Of home I thought, of foolish things—New York, and dear, garish Fifth Avenue all agleam with shop windows and the screaming brasses of passing automobiles, and the soda place around the corner on Forty-second, and the night boat to Boston—and a solid hour with the ads in back of the magazines. And then I looked about me and I saw Africa, putrid, acrid! And, gee! How I hated it—hated it!
I pulled myself together. Sure, more quinine, more Warburg’s, and another nip of the stuff. .Back to the paddle with all my strength—and the canoe flying along like a sentient being.^ They were in Minnesota after all, and even if they had gone urban, it wasn’t like being in a place like New York.

But what could I do?
Outside was the rain, and the miasmic jungle stench, and fever, and certain death—while inside?
I STUMBLED across the threshold, and, instinctively, I pulled my revolver from my waterproofed pocket.
I remember how I yelled at the empty, spooky rooms:
“I will defend myself to the last drop of my blood!” Quite melodramatic, eh? Incredibly, garishly so, like a good old Second Avenue five-acter where the hero is tied to the stake and the villain does a war-dance around him with brandished weapons.
I couldn’t help myself; I felt that ghastly, unknown, invisible enemy of mine the moment I was beyond the threshold. At first he was shrouded, ambiguous. But he was there. Hidden somewhere in the great, square entrance hall and peeping in upon my mind, my sanity.
Momentarily, I controlled myself with a tremendous, straining effort. .I said to myself, quite soberly, that I had come here to get dry, to take off my clothes, and so I sat down on a rickety, heat-gangrened chair and began kicking off my waterlogged boots.^ We sat down again, our legs touching and the same burn started low, and was stoked and roaring when the lights went off.

Simple English

[[File:|thumb|right|An incubus]] In the Middle Ages, people in Europe believed that Incubi (one Incubus, several Incubi) were male demons. There were also female demons, called succubi. They lay on sleeping people, to have sexual intercourse with them. They would also do this to make other incubi. While they had sex with their victim, they drained its energy to sustain themselves. Sometimes, having sex with an incubus may result in a child, as in the legend of Merlin.[1] Some sources say that the incubus may be identified by its unnaturally cold penis.[2] Religious tradition holds that repeated intercourse with such a spirit by either males or females may result in bad health, or even death.[3]

Origins of the legends

People have come up with different explanations for the incubus legends. In the Middle Ages, people worried a lot about sin, especially sexual sins of women. Victims may have been experiencing waking dreams or sleep paralysis. Also, nocturnal arousal, orgasm or nocturnal emission could be explained by the idea of creatures causing an otherwise guilt-producing and self-conscious behavior.[4] The influence of incubi could also have been used to explain how pregnancies happen outside marriage; such pregnancies were often "unexplainable".

Victims who claimed to have fallen prey to the influence of incubi, could in reality have been victims of sexual assault by a real person. Rapists may have attributed the rapes of sleeping women to demons in order to escape punishment. A friend or relative may have assaulted the victim in her sleep. The victims and, in some cases the clergy,[5] may have found it easier to explain the attack as supernatural rather than confront the idea that the attack came from a trusted person.

Ancient and religious descriptions

One of the earliest mentions of an incubus comes from Mesopotamia on the Sumerian kings' list, ca. 2400, where the hero Gilgamesh's father is listed as Lilu (Lila).[6] It is said that Lilu disturbs and seduces women in their sleep, while Lilitu, a female demon, appears to men in their erotic dreams.[7] Two other demons appear as well: Ardat lili visits men by night and bears ghostly children from them. Irdu lili, is the male counterpart to Ardat lili. He visits women by night. These demons were originally storm demons. Because the etymology was interpreted wrongly, they were later seen as night demons.[8] Also considered to be vampires which is another form of a demon that is said to drink blood from its victims.


Incubi and succubi were said by some not to be different sexes, but the same demon able to change its sex.[9] A succubus would be able to sleep with a man and collect his sperm, and then transform into an incubus and use that seed on women. Their offspring were thought to be supernatural in many cases, even if the actual genetic material originally came from humans.[4]

Many tales claim that the incubus is bisexual,[10] but some indicate that it is strictly heterosexual and finds attacking a male victim either unpleasant or detrimental.[11] There are also many stories involving the attempted exorcism of incubi or succubi who have taken refuge in the bodies of men or women.

Incubi are sometimes said to be able to conceive children. The half-human offspring of such a union is sometimes referred to as a cambion. The most famous legend of such a case includes that of Merlin, the famous wizard from Arthurian legend.[5]

According to the Malleus Maleficarum, exorcism is one of the five ways to overcome the attacks of Incubi, the others being Sacramental Confession, the Sign of the Cross (or recital of the Angelic Salutation), moving the afflicted to another location, and by excommunication of the attacking entity, "which is perhaps the same as exorcism." [12] On the other hand, the Franciscan friar Ludovico Maria Sinistrari stated that incubi "do not obey exorcists, have no dread of exorcisms, show no reverence for holy things, at the approach of which they are not in the least overawed."[5]
