Bad Booty Call: Incubi, Succubi & Their Nasty Offspring (adult-ish content)- Terrible Tuesday

More horror from Raymond Buckland and The Weiser Field Guide to Ghosts: Apparitions, Spirits, Spectral Lights, and Other Hauntings of History and Legend:

Incubus

The incubus is a spirit appearing as a male figure, a demon lover who seduces sleeping women and has intercourse with them…the name comes from the Latin in, meaning “on top of” and cubo meaning “I lie.” The belief in incubi was strong in medieval Europe, and it was thought that any misshapen child was the result of such a union. Variations on this belief are found around the world, in all cultures. The child of a union between an incubus and a mortal woman is known as a cambion. It was said that Merlin – magician to the legendary King Arthur – was a cambion.

An incubus supposedly has an ice-cold penis. All energy is drained from the victim, leaving the woman extremely debilitated. It is said that repeated intercourse with an incubus can bring about death.

It was thought by some that incubi and succubi (male and female) were all the same demon or spirit, taking on a different form depending upon whether or not it was seducing a human male or female. A succubus would then obtain semen from a male victim and deposit it in a female victim.

Alu-Demon

This is a Semitic (belonging to a language family originating in southwestern Asia) entity that is said to be the female offspring resulting from the union between a succubus and human. It hides in caves and around dark corners and slinks through darkened streets at dead of night, laying in wait for the unwary. It is said that the Alu-Demon has been known to enter bedrooms and to terrorize the people there, threatening to pounce upon them if they try to close their eyes. It will freely answer questions, but the answers it gives are unreliable and often unintelligible. Though part demon, not all Alu-Demons are inherently evil (though those of  a good disposition are extremely rare). The typical Alu-Demon is said to have dark eyes and hair, with small black horns projecting just above the eyes. They also have small, leathery, black wings.

So keep all this in mind as you tumble, sleepy and unsuspecting into your comfy bed. Sweet dreams.

  1. I remember reading the novel Incubus, by Ray Russel, when I was around 12, and it terrified me! Imagine a young teen full of hormones trying to deal with them into a virgin body, suddenly reading that sex can be something supernatural and evil, lol! It was a good read, though.

    Great post, I specially liked the idea of Merlin being a cambion…
