Sex with Ghosts! Let's go there.

There have been a number of articles lately about alleged 'close encounters' with ghosts.
Very close encounters.

Well, one woman actually, a 27-year-old “spiritual guidance counselor” named Amethyst Realm. (For real?) Realm claims to have done the dirty with at least 20 ghosts. She prefers them to men.
Realm appeared on the British TV show “ITV This Morning” to talk all about the many (dead) men in her life.
“It started as an energy, then became physical,” she told hosts Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby. “There was pressure on my thighs and breath on my neck. I just always felt safe. I had sex with the ghost. You can feel it. It’s difficult to explain. There was a weight and a weightlessness, a physical breath and stroking, and the energy as well.”                     December 10 2017
This is not a new thing.
We just haven't discovered this sort of an experience in this era but we may have run headlong into the option of such an experience with the help of information such as the article above.
Apparently people go seeking this shit out in cemeteries.
But, historically the whole incubus and succubus stories are well known.
Always best to blame perversions of the mind onto ghosts and things unholy isn't it.

The earliest written record of ghostly interactions of a sexual nature comes from the Sumarians. The demon God to do the dirty deed was Lillu (male) who would make love to women while they slept.
Now more forgotten and overshadowed by his female equivalent Lillu is rather a minor figure compared to Lilitu who lavished all of her female charms of men.
Lilitu was a unique identity to later be usurped by religion and changed in the Lillith we know and also the supernatural prostitute Ishtar.

Ishtar evolved as a nightmare figure sucking the life out of men.
Then she appears differently as the seducer of Adam after the fall of the garden of Eden.
If you google information you will see that Lilith/Ishtar has a huge amount of material backing up that she has been not forgotten.
The medieval church LOVED this whole idea that sinners were driven to commit their procrastination by demons and devils that appeared to them or possessed their mortal bodies.
Thomas Aquinas argued that since the devil was not human he could not produce sperm - and so here it gets very cool indeed...
"he would have to therefore transform himself into a woman,seduce a man, keep the semen in his vagina,transform himself into a man and impregnate a woman with the semen."
By holding onto the semen, something of the devil's spirit would be captured within and there any child born from such a union would be half- demonic.
This explains the obsession of witch hunters to find out whether men and women had completed the sexual act in full - it was all about not just punishing the victim but also to ensure that no offspring could be born and bought onto this earth.

Now, apparently sex with the devil wasn't very nice - you had to perform the 'abominable kiss' - yeah google that one!!and the devil's poky bit was apparently scaley and caused pain.
And it didnt stop there - this was a subject of great fascination.
Sister Madeline de Demandolx came up with a pattern of events ( now how did she know?)
Sunday - copulation with incubi and succubi
Sodomy on Thursday
Bestiality on Saturdays
Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday - anything you wanted.
Not everyone though that sex with Demons was bad!
Father Sinestari, writing in the 17th Century thought that sex with a incubus 'does not degrade but dignifies, as demons are fallen angels and so retained a vestige of grace'.
And so, we find a mired history of the feared connection of ghosts and demons being able to take without permission that is immoral and yet, to some, a seductive thought.
It is something that has appeared in history and in every culture. There is truely more that sits within our history and tends to repeat itself than we think we know.
Sometimes to find the best information, we must look back rather than look forward, for the explanations can often lie deeply embeded in our collective psyche.
And certainly one thing that we all seem to share is myth, legends, ghosts and all things beyond the realm of the normal.
