Hmm, why didn’t I know about this? I must be a demon in bed!
According to one legend, the incubus and the succubus were fallen angels. The Incubus: According to the church fathers, the incubus was an angel who fell from grace because of his insatiable lust for women. As a demon, the incubus continued with his carnal desires, preying upon vulnerable women, raping them in their sleep or provoking in them sexual desires that only the incubus (sometimes known as the demon lover) could satisfy.
It is a sex demon that preys on women while they sleep. Its female equivalent is the Succubus. An Incubus in ancient greek mythology is a male demon who visits women who are asleep and either rapes them, penetrates them or has complete sexual intercourse with them. The woman will then get pregnant and the baby will grow up to be a normal child but the child will possess supernatural abilities such as Black Magic, Voodoo or psychic powers. People believe that the last RECORDED Incubus child was born in 1876 by a woman named Dorethy Williamson who lived in Longton, Stoke-On-Trent, Staffordshire. She died while giving birth. The last NON-RECORDED Incubus child was born in Longton again but this times this baby was born in 1995! This baby was named Jordan Ducklin and was told that a man named Lee Ducklin though he is not his father. The opposite to a Incubus is a Succubus.
In Western medieval legend, a succubus (plural succubi) is a demon who takes the form of a female to seduce men (especially monks) in dreams to have sexual intercourse. They draw energy from the men to sustain themselves, often until the point of exhaustion or death of the victim. From mythology and fantasy, Lilith and the Lilin (Jewish), Lilitu (Sumerian) and Rusalka (Slavic) are, in redactive Christian fables (folktales not part of official Christian theology), considered succubi.
Both eat human souls after giving some sort of sexual favor but a succubus is a female demon and an incubus is male.
an incubus does the dirty business, the succubus just watches as she makes you do it to yourself.
One is female and the other is male.
