Succubus The Seductive Demon
In old folklore and into medieval legend, there was a demon who was the stuff of dreams. Or maybe nightmares. She would come in the night, seductive and enticing. A demon with the power to bring men to their knees. Beautiful, enticing and otherworldly.
In world legend she has taken on the persona of an evil ugly demon. In others, men can't look at her face because her beauty is too much too behold. She is the ultimate male fantasy. The Succubus.
When men sleep, she would appear in the corner of the room. As the night grew darker, She would crawl to the bed and slowly begin to seduce the man.
As he slept she would suck out his life force as she enticed him.
As his breath became heavier with passion, she would reach for a kiss, and his soul would slowly exhale to touch her lips as she drew it into her body.
Many men would believe that she was just imagination. Most would be asleep when she came calling, but many men awoke. Seeing her beauty they would be terrified, awed and aroused.
The Succubus would crawl up the man, all the time making him completely incapable of moving. Many victims would be in the grip of Sleep Paralysis.
Or so they thought. Throughout the ordeal she would continue to slake her thirst on his soul. Leaving him exhausted in the morning. Some would never wake at all. She was the ultimate soul snatcher.
Her name was Lilith. According to the Alphabet of Ben Sira (an anonymous medieval text) She was the wife of Adam.
Leaving the garden of Eden, she refused to return and supposedly mated with an Archangel. His name was Samael. According to the Zoharistic Kabbalah there were said to be four Succubi who also mated with this Angel.
All were said to be beautiful, but if you take a closer look they have many deformities. Bird claws, wings and snake tails were the most common.
As the legend progressed it took on another form. The Succubi were said to change into Sirens. This is understandable as the Succubus would sing to her victim just as the latter day Sirens did.
Over the centuries, the men of the cloth, such as priests and even rabbis, were said to say prayers to curb her entrance into this world, so that the Succubi would not attack the men of the villages.
Many wives would stay awake in their bedrooms just to keep their husbands safe. Its said that many were jealous, believing that their husbands had taken a lover.
Soon sleep would overtake the wives, and the Succubus would glide quietly past her, and latch onto her man.

Sleep Paralysis? Maybe!

Sleep paralysis affects many people around the world, but is it a normal phenomenon or psychic event?
According to the writings of the Kabbalah, the other Queens of the Succubi gave birth to children. But Lilith did not.
The Queens were named Naamah, Eisheth Zenunim and Agrat Bat Mahlat.Demons are said to be unable to have children, so they would impregnate human women after taking the semen from the sleeping males.
Evidently the process would stop the baby being human, and instead would produce a child with hideous deformities.
The story of the Succubus is in many ancient writings.
From Arabic to Viking, Indian to Medieval Britain. The tale itself may differ slightly but the meaning of the demon was the same.
Lilith the Queen of the Succubi is still believed in many countries around the world today. Maybe there is something to the legend.
Just remember, when you go to sleep don't dismiss those erotic dreams that you may be having.
You may just have been visited by the Lilith the Demon Queen leader of the Succubus.
She may not want your love, but she will definitely take your soul.
