How does this ghost sex thing work…?

It’s Supernatural Week on ITV’s This Morning show and they seem to find no shame in discussing such a lustful topic as spectrophilia.

This Morning: I had sex with a ghost – twice! – Yahoo TV UK.

Natasha Blasik joined the programme by video link from the US to talk about her ghost sex. She said she was at home alone lying in her bed when she felt something enter the room but could not se anyone. Then someone was touching her and pushing her against her will and was on top of her and she could feel their weight and warmth but could not see anything.

She said she decided to ‘relax’ and then found that it was ‘pleasurable’ and she ‘enjoyed it’.

I was seeing the term “spectrophilia” (ghost love) come up in our search terms and wondered what was going on. That led me to this piece. Seems people are interested.

The obvious answer is that people are dreaming, hallucinating, imagining or having an episode of sleep paralysis – a strange condition that affects many people at some point in the life when they are dreaming but awake and helpless to move. It’s not well understood why this happens. Sex with spirits is NOTHING new, it’s just making news now when celebs like Kesha, Lucy Liu and the late Anna Nicole Smith tell about their experiences. St Teresa of Avila, who had more than her share of weird episodes, reportedly described a spirit encounters like this. It seems less naughty when it involves the “holy” ghost…

In the 17th century, the idea that demons, incubi and succubi, had their way with unwilling (?) partners was called “demoniality” [Fortean Times 311:43-49] Now, the demons and old hags have become less unpleasant, it seems. Strange that the entities have the ability to pass through ceilings and walls but yet feel solid? That makes no sense unless you think of it as a psychological state. Who hasn’t had such dreams that feel real?

As I mentioned, demons and witches were previously blamed, but also nymphs, fairies, angels, and of course aliens have been rather forceful with people. Paranormal researcher Brad Steiger put out a book of modern ghost sex stories called Sex and the Supernatural (1968) that ended up being a source for people to grab onto and exploit as genuine. It sure as heck makes the news people happy.

    The writings of deceased cult leader, David Berg, who founded the Children of God, now known as the Family International, are filled with descriptions of him supposedly having sex with spirit beings.

    Most of his writings, which include extensive drawings and cartoons, are available at the following link, but beware, it is a bizarre rabbit hole of esoteric religious nonsense:

    one of the links at that link above leads to this example, one of many:

    http://www.xfamily.org/index.php/Mocumba

    “Mocumba is a spiritual being described by David Berg as the spirit of Africa in a dream he published of his sexual fantasy with Mocumba complete with Mocumba’s backstory. In medieval legend, a succubus (plural succubi) is a demon which takes the form of a female to seduce men (especially monks) in dreams to have sexual intercourse.[2] Berg’s dream closely resembles what psychology calls “sleep paralysis”[3] (or an “incubus attack” in paranormal lore).”

      For many children born and raised in the Children of God cult this kind of thing was deadly serious. In the quotation below, Karen Zerby is the top cult leader after David Berg died. Zerby’s son, Ricky Rodriquez, committed murder-suicide in 2005 over the child abuse he experienced and witnessed. His suicide video explaining his motives can be found at the link below.

      see:

      http://www.xfamily.org/index.php/Loving_Jesus

      “Loving Jesus is a term that members of the Children of God/Family International cult use to describe their sexual relationship with Jesus. This doctrine was introduced in 1995, and is taught to all members as young as 12, but more fully from the age of 14. The Family describes the Loving Jesus teachings as a radical form of “bridal theology.” It is their understanding of the Bible that the followers of Christ are his bride, called to love and serve him with the fervor of a wife. They take bridal theology further than other Christians by encouraging members to imagine that Jesus is having sex with them during sexual intercourse and masturbation. Male members are told to visualize themselves as women, in order to avoid a homosexual relationship with Jesus (male homosexuality is an offense warranting excommunication). Additionally, members are instructed to say “love words,” or talk dirty, to Jesus as they are having sex. Karen Zerby has published a list of sexually explicit expressions that her followers could use during sex with Jesus.”

        Have you heard about “pagan” religions doing something similar, back in the day?

        As I understand it the practice was used to create an earthly link between mortals and the gods, in order to guarantee fertile crops or good fortune.

        As an aside, I’ve always wondered what our culture does in the name of religion, that we view as perfectly normative, and even “good”, that future generations will, clearly, perceive as abhorant.

        Sex with children is just one example that religion gives a rationale for. Spousal abuse, slavery, xenophobia etc., at one time one religion or another have justified these acts.

        Now, most of us find the things to be disgusting, but at the time those cultures who rationalized, and practiced those behaviors thought that they were being “good”.

          “Have you heard about “pagan” religions doing something similar, back in the day?”

          Yes. “There is nothing new under the sun”, at least according to Ecclesiastes. That’s why the references to incubi and succubi prompted me to show how that nonsense still exists today in the teachings of demented David Berg.

          Berg communicated with his followers through frequent essays, almost all of which are now online thanks to whistle blowers. When he was grooming his followers to accept his new doctrine, Flirty Fishing http://www.xfamily.org/index.php/Flirty_Fishing which was religious prostitution, one thing he did was write about sacred prostitution in ancient temples https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sacred_prostitution

          I find it interesting how ancient ideas are still recycling today.

    I was the victim of a succubus once, well at least I thought I was. It turned out to be my sister in-law Jaline. :)

    The succubus legends always interested me. I was playing the newest installment of the Devil May Cry series, DMC, by developer Ninja Theory last year. I loved the symbolism (many die hard Devil May Cry hated that game, but I say stuff ‘em it was great fun to play).

    One of the bosses you have to fight in the game is a massive, gross, female demon which produces a mind control slime, which is then pumped into an extremely popular soft drink on the human plane called Virility – named Succubus. You get to kill her in the most awesome way as well.

    It’s moments like that where I find legends and myths like these useful to modern day pop and art culture. Yet it’s silly to believe in them, but, because the myths exist and are documented, should be exploited for subjects such as art, literature, gaming, TV, etc.

    When I was in high school (mid-late ’60s) I was a big believer in the supernatural, UFOs and all things strange. FATE was the one magazine I read each month, pretty much believing just about everything I read.

    While I don’t recall reading the Steiger book, I do remember picking up a paperback copy of ‘The Sexy Space People’, or something like that. It had dozens of ‘cases’ involving men and women who claim to have been abducted or seduced into having sex with aliens of all sorts. Some of the women even claimed to have given birth to human/alien babies which were then taken from them. I’m pretty sure that the book also referred to the history of supernatural seducers, but explained them as actually having been aliens disguised as ghosts, demons, what have you.

    Having sex with a partner that isn’t physically in the same room has been around for a very, very long time. It’s scientific name is “masturbation”.
