Strange Sexual Beings
(This piece is an excerpt from Eros and Evil)
'ALUKAH A Hebrew succubus and vampire derived from Babylonian demonology. The 'Alukah bears a close resemblance to the Arab 'Aulak.
ARDAT-LILE A Semitic succubus; also a class of succubi. They are noted for the voracity of their sexual appetites, and for the delight they take in doing harm to mankind.
BASILISC A monster who comes into existence as the result of some deviant sexual act, most commonly, sodomy.
BHOOTUMS Sexual spirits or incubi who copulate with Hindu women.
BRUXSAS Portuguese succubi who seduce wanderers and also copulate with other demons. They are vampires as well as succubi and may appear only at night.
CABALLI Lustful spirits, still possessed of their earthly passions, who instinctively seek out living persons of similar inclination for the purpose of gratifying their desires. Spiritualists believe that they are especially attracted to lustful and salacious mediums, whose powers permit the Caballi to materialize and so experience more intense pleasures than are possible to them otherwise. However, their sexual practices also take place on the astral planes, where they copulate with a variety of astral beings and with humans visiting the planes in their astral bodies.
CAMBIONS Offspring of incubi and succubi.
CENTAURS Beings with the upper bodies of men growing out of the bodies of horses. Much more than the Satyrs, usually credited with such traits and behavior, the Centaurs were lascivious, cruel, and drunken. Forever lecherously inflamed, they were rapists by preference.
CHUIAELS (or CIJURREYLS) Hindu succubi who perform fellatio until the very life is sucked out of the enraptured victim. The Churreyl is said to be the spirit of a woman who has died in childbirth (women dying in that circumstance becoming demons and vampires according to the lore of many times and places).
COCHE-MARES. Sexual beings apparently related to both incubi and succubi and to nightmare demons. Coche-Mares were sent by witches to persons whom the witches hoped thus (by sexual pleasure) to enslave or make dependent on them. They appeared only at night, usually while the recipient of their embraces was sleeping.
COCOTO West Indian deities or demons who have carnal intercourse with human females.
COMPUSAE Succubus demons.
CORYBANTES Asiatic spirits noted for their orgiastic rites and wild dances.
DRAGONS Invisible beings which can under certain conditions become visible and assume human form for the purpose of copulating with witches. The Dragon makes a body for himself out of semen he obtains from masturbators and the intercourse of onanists and fornicators, especially when the woman involved is a prostitute engaged in practicing her trade. In such cases the Dragon becomes an exact replica of the person whose semen he has used and so may be mistaken for that individual or for his Double. Dragons may also copulate with mediums who are able to give them ectoplasmic bodies.
DRUJAS (or DRUJES) Persian succubi noted for their raging lust, deceitfulness and general corruption, rather resembling the human female as medieval Christian theologians saw her. The Drujes continue in the spirit world the pattern of evil they earlier established as human beings. They delight in "crime and pollution," and their main objective is to lure others to ruin, pain and depravity. The resemblance to the Caballi is obvious.
DRUSI (or DUSI) According to the Gauls, demons who copulate with human females.
DUENDES Spanish incubi.
DVOROVOI Slavic household spirits of male sex who copulate with the female members of the family to which they have attached themselves. Dvorovoi are extremely jealous and may strangle a human mistress if she proves unfaithful.
EGRIGORS (or THOUGHT-FORMS or, in Tibet, TULPAS) Egrigors created by group effort, and which may be apprehended only visually, are the most common, but most occultists also hold that there may be tangible materialized Thought-Forms, and that these may be created by individuals as well as by groups. Usually they are created by intense concentration, but they may also come into being as the result of very intense daydreams or phantasies.
Egrigors, once in existence, may develop wills of their own, passing beyond the control of their creator(s). Sometimes, it is reported, they turn upon their creators, inflicting bodily harm. There is the story of a young woman driven insane by the physical and mental cruelties of her Egrigor-lover. There are other stories of men driven to crimes of violence because of their jealousy of the unfaithful Thought-Form mistresses they had created. Other accounts tell of Thought-Form replicas (and DOPPELGANGERS), created for homosexual indulgence, who have murdered their creators and slipped unnoticed into their places in the world. It might be noted that some authorities vigorously deny that the Tibetan Tulpas are to be equated with the Thought-Forms of Western occultists.
ELVES In the Teutonic tradition, Elves court mortal women, seduce them, and sometimes, if the women resist their advances, become kidnapers and rapists. The Elves are the offspring of the unions of demons with mortals and their gestation period may be as brief as four weeks or as long as one year. They may be born singly, as twins, or in litters. They are inclined to mischief of all sorts and often assist their witch-mothers in injuring human adversaries.
EMPUSAE In ancient Greek lore, malevolent and sensual female demons. They could assume the forms of animals or of beautiful girls, and in the forms of young girls they copulated as succubi with men. Mentioned by Aristophanes and other writers, they were said to be the daughters of Hecate, Patroness of Witchcraft.
EPHIALTES and HYPHIALTES Greek equivalents of incubi and succubi.
ESTRIE A medieval demon; also, a witch. A night-flier capable of changing form at will, the Estrie drinks the blood of humans and has sexual intercourse with them.
FAIRIES That fairies, both male and female, wed and/or had sexual congress with humans of their opposite sex was a firmly entrenched belief in the Middle Ages and beyond. There was no problem of anatomical discrepancies to cast doubt upon reports of such unions. Fairies, while of less than average (human) stature, were of approximately the same size as mortals. As Margaret Murray has remarked, it was only after the appearance of Shakespear&s A Midsummer Night's Dream that the fairies of literature and folklore began to dwindle to their present tiny stature.
FAUNS Beings with the lower bodies of goats, and with tails, horns, and furry ears. They resemble, in other words, Satyrs. Fauns copulate with women and were sometimes regarded, as has been noted, as incubi.
FIG FAUNS Fauns or Satyrs of the desert, so called because they supposedly subsisted on figs. The Malleus Male ficarum holds that Pans, Incubi, Satyrs, Fauns and Dusii are all the same beings.
FIRE SPIRITS Elementals said to cohabit with old women who are witches, or who are obsessed by evil spirits. Fire Spirits are reported to have a fiery shape, though whether they are hot, and burn the women who enter into intimacies with them, I have been unable to discover.
FRIDAY SPIRITS Friday's star is Venus, and the Spirits of Friday incite sexual desires. When called up, these spirits may appear as naked girls or as she-goats, and in these forms they may act as succubi. They sometimes take other forms as well.
GANDHARVAS Blood-sucking Hindu incubi.
GNOMES and GNOMIDS Elementals who dwell in the earth but come up onto the surface for various purposes. Gnomes are the males and Gnomids the females. They are small of stature but well formed and the Gnomids are extremely attractive sexually to men. They sometimes mate with mortals as do Sylphs (air elementals), Melusines (water elementals), and, by some accounts, Salamanders (elementals of fire).
GOBLINS This term was often used as a synonym for incubi, or for other spirits who have sexual intercourse with humans. For that purpose a Goblin could assume a variety of shapes. Like the Poltergeist, the Goblin was unimpressed by and entirely resistant to the efforts of exorcists.
KOSTCHTCHIE Russian Goblins, hideous in appearance, who live in the mountains of the Caucasus and are especially lustful after young girls.
LAMIAS Greek and Roman succubi-vampires. The Lamia steals children and sucks their blood until they are completely drained. Lamias are occasionally reported to be bisexual, having intercourse with both men and women.
LARVAE Lewd spirits conceived when humans phantasy sexual intercourse with imaginary partners and so reach the orgasm. Larvae are not, however, born of the physical sperm, but of a sperm secreted by the aroused imagination. It is said that continued loss of this sperm of the imagination, as a result of over-indulgence in erotic phantasies, will make a man physically impotent and a woman sterile. Creative powers of the intellect and the imagination may also be impaired and even destroyed, and such imaginary venereal excesses are further said to cause moles, miscarriages and malformed offspring. More, night-wandering spirits may carry off the imaginary sperm to their nests where they hatch them out, producing horri~e and homicidal monsters. The hatching may also be done by witches, with physical sperm.
LEMURES Beings similar to Caballi.
LESHY A Slavic woodland demigod who is born as the consequence of the lustful coupling of demons with women.
MERMAID She is in some respects the counterpart of the Water Nymph, who lures men down into the water to drown; and of the Siren, who also lures men to their doom by her beauty and/or singing. The Mermaid was often beautiful from her waist up, but her lower body was that of a fish. However, some authorities supplied her with two fish
