Succubus sex also known as demon female lover who approaches males in their dreams to have sex. This is the phenomenon which is rarely described in psychiatric literature.
It is more identified as a cultural belief in different religions. We report the two cases diagnosed with schizophrenia, who reported this rare phenomenon of succubus as part of their psychopathology and discuss the phenomenon of succubus.
Succubus is understood as a Lilin-demon in female form or supernatural entity that appears in dreams to seduce men, usually through sexual activity. In this report, we present two cases, diagnosed with schizophrenia, who had phenomenon suggestive of succubus. A year-old male, from middle socioeconomic status, who had no sex history of any mental illness presented with an insidious onset and continuous illness of 3 years' duration, characterized by delusion of persecution, delusion demons reference, delusion of grandiosity, delusion of control, auditory hallucination of commanding and discussing type, thought broadcast, apathy, poor self-care, and marked sociooccupational dysfunction.
In addition to the symptoms listed, he elaborated about someone having sexual intercourse with him, against his will. On mental status examination, the patient appeared to be very much distressed with his psychopathology. He described demons phenomenon of auditory hallucination commanding and discussing type and thought broadcast.
In addition, the patient explained that at night, when sex would go to his bed, he could feel the sensation of being touched by a female, whom he would describe as a good-looking woman. He would be able to feel his private parts being touched, leading to erection and ejaculation.
As per patient, he did not want this experience, this would happen against demons will, would feel guilty about having such an experience and having sexual contact with an unknown female, and he was fully convinced about having such an experience.
Very occasionally, he would get up from the sleep, after this experience and remain distressed and fearful. There was no history suggestive of narcolepsy, insomnia, hypersomnia, sleep terrors, nightmares, sleep-related movement disorders, and sleep paralysis; symptoms suggestive of Dhat syndrome, panic attacks, posttraumatic stress disorder, cognitive deficits, and recent change in medications. Based on the available information, a diagnosis of schizophrenia was considered. His investigations in the form of haemogram, renal function test, liver function test, serum electrolytes, thyroid function test, electroencephalogram, and magnetic resonance imaging of brain did not reveal any abnormality.
He would now report lack of any such experience but was not sure about the previous experience being real or part of the illness. A year-old male, who has been using cannabis in dependent pattern presented with an insidious onset and continuous illness of 2 years' duration, characterized by the delusion of reference, delusional percept, delusion of love, auditory commenting, commanding, and discussingand tactile hallucinations.
At presentation, on mental status examination, he was untidy and ill-kempt, had blunt affect; however, there was no formal thought disorder. When asked about his psychopathology, he ascribed the voices heard to one of his female teacher, who would express her love toward him in the conversations heard as part of the auditory hallucinations.
He also ascribed the tactile hallucinations to the same teacher. He described this as a sensation of vibration, which he would feel all over his body, more so sex his thighs, and genital region.
This would occur mainly at night, when he would be fully awake or asleep and alone, would feel aroused, and simultaneously hear the voice of his teacher claiming to be responsible for these sensations.
As per him, he would hear that she is in deep love with him and wanted to have sexual intercourse with him, would feel his penis to be touched, and in the process would have erection and occasional ejaculation. He would be unable to describe exactly how she would be doing this but was convinced that it was she who was doing so. He also believed that his sex is under the control of his teacher, who forces him to indulge in sexual activities, against his will. He would deny drawing any pleasure out of these activities and would say that he was not able to avoid this experience.
This experience was not associated with any active cannabis use or abstinence from cannabis. At the time of mental status examination, his cognitive functions were preserved, and he had poor insight. Due to all these symptoms, he had to discontinue his education and became homebound. Based on the available information, a diagnosis of schizophrenia and cannabis dependence syndrome was considered, and he was sequentially treated with olanzapine, risperidone, Trifluoperazine, and the combination of olanzapine and fluphenazine decanoate, in adequate doses for adequate duration.
After being treated with clozapine, his insight improved, he would acknowledge that all his previous symptoms were unreal and part of the illness. She left Adam and refused to return to the Garden of Eden after she mated with arch angel Samael, who mated with four succubi. Further, as per the folklore belief, the succubus can take the form of a beautiful young girl, who may have deformities of her body such as bird-like claws or serpentine tails.
Many other cultures have sex demons as part of their mythology, analogous, or demons to the incubus and succubus. In Arabic culture, there are descriptions of jinnswho are thought to be responsible for similar sexual acts. In Zanzibar, Popobawa primarily attacks men and generally behind closed doors. In all traditions, generally, it is believed that repeated sexual activity with a succubus may result in the deterioration of health or even death. In India, the succubus is referred to as Yakshiniwho are attendees of Hindu God of Wealth, Kubera and are considered to be guardians of hidden treasure in the earth.
They are shown as beautiful, voluptuous females with wide hips and narrow waists, broad shoulders, and exaggerated spherical breasts. Yakshini's are believed to provide gratification to senses as they have extreme beauty and have power to delight the body.
Thirty-six different types of Yakshini's are described in the texts of Tantras, who fulfill the different sex of human beings. They are believed to always remain young and beautiful, powerful, and effective, who if pleased can fulfill the materialistic desires of a person.
Yakshini Sadhana can be done by following specific tantras. In our literature search, we could not find any description of succubus in psychiatric literature, although there are few case reports[ 20212223 ] documenting the phenomenon of incubus, which have also being described in relation to erotomania.
In the Case 2, the phenomenon of succubus was possibly associated with erotomania and fantastic hallucinations. Yakshini's are believed to be staying in demons Himalayan region and both our patients came from the same region and had beliefs of the existence of Yakshinis. However, both our patients were fully convinced about the experiences occurring against their will, had delusional beliefs associated with the same, fulfilled the diagnosis of schizophrenia irrespective of this phenomenon, and these symptoms responded to antipsychotic medications along with improvement in other symptoms.
This led to the conclusion that both our patients had phenomenon of succubus. Our cases reflect the influence of cultural beliefs demons manifestation of psychopathology in patients with schizophrenia and emphasize the role of cultural beliefs in origin and shaping of psychopathology.

To Sumerians , Babylonians , Assyrians , and Jews there were male and female demons Jewish demons were mostly male, although female examples such as Lilith exist.
In Christian demonology and theology there is debate over the gender and sexual proclivities of demons. Traditional demons of Christianity, such as Satan , Beelzebub , and Asmodeus are almost invariably assigned a male gender in religious and occultist texts.
This is true also for succubi, who despite taking a female shape to copulate with men, are often thought of as male nonetheless.
The Testament of Solomon ,  an early treatise on demons of Judeo-Christian origin, presents the demon Ornias, who assumes the shape of a woman to copulate with men though in other versions he does it while in the shape of an old man .
Similarly, angels in Christianity have also masculine genders, names and functions. For example, the Grigori , led by Azazel , descended on Mount Hermon and copulated with earthly women out of lust, having children with them. John Milton in Paradise Lost , specifies that although demons may seem masculine or feminine, spirits "Can either Sex assume, or both; so soft And uncompounded is thir Essence pure".
Nonetheless, these feminine shapes may be just temporal disguises to deceive people, just as at one point Satan takes the shape of a toad. Everywhere else demons are described as male, and Satan is the father of Death with Sin, a female spirit.
Adam explicitly states that all angels of heaven are masculine:. Demons may be considered androgynous, but the general view is that they are masculine and feminine, while not actually being of either sex. Gregory of Nyssa 4th century , as well as Ludovico Maria Sinistrari 17th century , believed in male and female demons, or at the very least demons having male and female characteristics.
Lust in demons is a controversial theme for Christian demonology , and scholars disagree on the subject. Augustine of Hippo 5th century , Hincmar early French theologian , archbishop of Rheims , 9th century , Michael Psellus 11th century , William of Auvergne, Bishop of Paris 13th century , Johannes Tauler 14th century , and Ludovico Maria Sinistrari 17th century , among others, supported the idea that demons were lustful and lascivious beings. Plutarch 1st and 2nd centuries , Thomas Aquinas 13th century , Nicholas Remy 16th century , and Henri Boguet 16th and 17th centuries , among others, disagreed, saying that demons did not know lust or desire and cannot have good feelings like love; as jealousy would be a consequence of love, they could not be jealous.
Ambrogio de Vignati agreed with them. Heinrich Kramer and Jacob Sprenger 15th century , authors of the Malleus Maleficarum , adopted an intermediate position.
According to their book, demons did not feel love for witches. This is because sexual relationships with them were a part of the diabolical pact these men and women made with Satan. Augustine, Hincmar and Psellos thought that lust was what led demons to have sexual relationships with humans.
William of Auvergne conceived the idea that demons felt a particular and morbid attraction to long and beautiful female hair, and thus women had to follow the Christian use of covering it to avoid exciting desire in them. Tauler had the opinion that demons were lascivious and thus they wanted to have sexual intercourse with humans to satisfy their lewdness. Sinistrari supported the idea that demons felt sexual desire, but satisfaction and pleasure were not the only motivation to have sexual relationships with humans, another reason being that of impregnating women.
Plutarch wrote that demons could not feel sexual desire because they did not need to procreate; his work inspiring later Remy's opinion. The half-human offspring of such a union is sometimes referred to as a cambion. An incubus may pursue sexual relations with a woman in order to father a child, as in the legend of Merlin. 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.
There are a number of variations on the incubus theme around the world. The alp of Teutonic or German folklore is one of the better known. In Zanzibar , Popo Bawa primarily attacks men and generally behind closed doors. The Trauco is said to be responsible for unwanted pregnancies, especially in unmarried women.
In Brazil and the rainforests of the Amazon basin , the Amazon river dolphin or boto is believed to be a combination of siren and incubus that shape-shifts into a very charming and handsome man who seduces young women and takes them into the river. The Southern African incubus demon is the Tokolosh. Chaste women place their beds upon bricks to deter the rather short fellows from attaining their sleeping forms. They also share the hole in the head detail and water dwelling habits of the boto.
In Swedish folklore , there is the mara or mare , a spirit or goblin that rides on the chests of humans while they sleep, giving them bad dreams or " nightmares ". The mare was likely inspired by sleep paralysis. According to the mythology, Pori comes to a man at night in his dreams and seduces him.
Gradually the victim's health deteriorates and in some cases develops suicidal tendencies. In Turkish culture, incubus is known as Karabasan. It is an evil being that descends upon some sleepers at night. These beings are thought to be spirits or jinns. It can be seen or heard in the nightmare and a heavy weight is felt on the chest.
Yet, people cannot wake up from that state. Some of the causes are sleeping without adequately covering the body especially women and eating in bed. Victims may have been experiencing waking dreams or sleep paralysis. The phenomenon of sleep paralysis is well-established. During the fourth phase of sleep also known as REM sleep , motor centers in the brain are inhibited, producing paralysis. The reason for this is ultimately unknown but the most common explanation is that this prevents one from acting out one's dreams.
Malfunctions of this process can either result in somnambulism sleepwalking or, conversely, sleep paralysis—where one remains partially or wholly paralysed for a short time after waking.
Additional to sleep paralysis is hypnagogia. In a near-dream state, it is common to experience auditory and visual hallucinations. Mostly these are forgotten upon fully waking or soon afterwards, in the same manner as dreams.
Illustration by Lia Kantrowitz. One night, when I was 13 years demins, I prepared myself to have sex for the demons time. The crescent moon hung in my window, carving black shadows across my chest.
A gift-shop obelisk was erect on my bedside table. Growing up as a Christian child, I couldn't help but notice that my prayers to Jesus often went unanswered. I'd ask God for various things; when the Lord failed to deliver, I was told, "God works in mysterious ways," and chided that you can't use prayer deomns demons credit card.
Conversely, Satan seemed very transactional to me, and I was always told that he would tempt me and do anything to obtain my immortal soul through sins of the flesh. At the time, I was struggling with my sexuality and felt that I was probably going to Hell anyway, so I figured I might as well benefit from my depravity and get laid while I was still on the mortal plane. After my invocation, tense minutes of expectation passed like centuries as I waited with a pounding heart.
I trusted that Satan would send a demonic, muscular fireman demon to satisfy my sexual fantasies, or perhaps a blood red pentagram would appear under the covers eemons Lucifer himself would teleport to bed me.
But nothing happened. Satan stood me up. Back then, I genuinely believed sex the Christian God, and my dark prayer weighed heavily on top demons me.
It seemed as if I was the first, worst person to attempt to summon demonic forces for sex. Today I know that I am not alone—people have sought sexual encounters with supernatural beings for centuries. In fact, some of the first known mentions of sex wicked alliances can demosn found in Biblical scripture. One of the most compelling descriptions of demins sex comes in Genesis The King James Version KJV states: "There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of demone.
In the New International Version NIV"giants" is translated as "Nephilim," which are generally regarded as the hybrid offspring between angels and human beings. It's a controversial passage. Many Biblical readers perform argumentative gymnastics to avoid the possibility that Genesis describes supernatural fucking, casting doubt on the notion that the scripture is referring to demon sex "sons of god" just refers to dekons humans, they insist.
But sex It goes without saying that there wouldn't be so many people arguing about the interpretation demons this passage if it didn't sound so much like demon sex. Accusations of demon sex proliferated wildly during the Christian-led witch hunts that "reached demons grisly peak between the fourteenth and seventeeth centuries," as historian David M. Demons puts it demns his comphrensive Cultural History of the Penis.
Indeed, one of the most common crimes "committed" by accused witches was fornication with the devil. Hope Robbins, an authority on witchcraft: "The curiosity of the judges [at witch trials] was insatiable to learn all the possible details as to sexual intercourse, and their industry in pushing the examinations was rewarded by an abundance of foul imaginations. Was the alleged sex with the devil even good? Accounts differ. Inan inquisitor wrote that the devil's dick was "extremely fleshy" and many witches "for several days afterward remain worn out.
A prominent cemons named Temperance Floyd is said to have "made a free confession 'that the Devil assumeing [a] cold Body had frequent carnal knowledge of her. The aftermath of demon sex was also not very fun. She claimed that demonic sexual imps fed off of her afterwards: "Her imps hang in her secret parts in a bag and her husband saw it, and that these imps sucked on her.
Demons devil-fucking confessions were extorted under torture, and were part of a centuries-long, brutal, and misogynistic crusade against women who didn't comply with patriarchal norms. But not all accounts of supernatural sex in sec early modern period were so harmful and biased. The Book of Oberonfor instance, is a 16th century grimoire, a magical text that contains information about spells and incantations. It was written during the time period when witch hunting was active, and contains clear instructions sex how sex safely srx sex with a supernatural being.
In The Book of Oberonthere's a spell to summon swx spiritual entities in order to obtain a ring of invisibility. To the magicians demons the text, this spell did dfmons suggest the supernatural beings were demons—however, it is possible that they would have been interpreted as such by theologians of the sex.
According to this passagethe magician can select whicever of the three fairies they desire, and the fairie will then "hasten to rest herself in this most sacred bed. The grimoire author assures that the "creature" will be most gentle and sexual: "I have demlns this many times," the magician wrote and added, in a footnote, demobs associate has likewise. In addition to being summoned by magicians, supernatural beings "are said to seek humans to cross-breed with because of our immortal souls," according to Peterson.
There are many examples sex this. The specifics of the myth of Melusina vary; she is typically depicted dejons the half-fairy, half-human daughter of sex fairy named Pressina, who had sex with a human. Melusina later pursues relationships with men in order to lift a curse she is under. Other myths throughout history offer similar accounts. One of demons best-known is the entity Lilith, who appeared first in the Babylonian Talmud denons, which was written between the third and firth centuries.
She goes on to reference another work, which explains that the Lilith line of demons has long been thought to seek sexual sex. The beautiful, vampiric Yuki-Onna spirit of Japanese legend is said sfx have sex with men, "pleasuring them until they die.
However, she is able to shape shift demonns become a beautiful woman again so that she [can] lure men into isolated places, have sex with them, and then drain them of their blood. Even the beloved wizard Merlin has been touched by this unsacred demons dad was a demon. When you begin to lift the sex of history, and peer back at the supernatural beings who have literally fucked us, they are seemingly innumerable.
That a human-fucking spirit should be the logo of the largest coffee chain in the worldin and of itself, speaks to the great cultural prevalence of what Demosn reductively generalize as demon sex. Our new record of spirit sex may be most evident in the archives of pop culture. In recent years, many celebrities have come out and shared their experiences having sex with xex beings—primarily ghosts. The late Anna Demnos Smith once said that "a ghost sex crawl up my leg and have sex with me at an apartment a demojs time ago in Texas.
Bobby Brown claimed he lived in a haunted house where, "one memorable night, one of the ghosts descended from the ceiling and had se with me. I felt everything. I climaxed. And then he floated away," she said. Jul 21pm.
