  1. More folklore than anything. These are demons who thrive on human sexuality – the incubus being the male, the succubus the female. There’s been a lot of artistic license taken over the centuries with these, and these have perhaps fed into the sensual nature of vampire lore. Originally, though, they probably came out of semitic demonology where their precursors were blamed for causing miscarriages (incubus) and sapping men of their virility (succubus).
    Incubus is also a band from California fronted by Brandon Boyd. I prefer their earlier stuff – off S.C.I.E.N.C.E. especially.

  2. Male and female sex demon, respectively.
    Original mythology suggested that people would be raped by demons who would hold them down and rape them. A succubus would collect sperm from male humans then convert to an incubus and implant the seed into women to produce a corrupt child.
    The most likely reasons these myths occurred was due to a lack of understanding of orgasms and people attempting to hide ‘shameful’ masturbation when their neighbours would hear them climax. Also, other reason are due to sleep paralysis, as the demon holding you down would’ve been a valid explanation back then for such phenomena, but now we have UFO encounters!!!

  3. Religion’s explanation for wet dreams.
    Seriously, they are demons who rape you in your sleep. Incubi rape women, Succubi rape men.
    Back when people used the supernatural to explain everything from the phases of the moon to the leavening of bread…wet dreams needed a good ol ghost story behind them. So a few religious types got together and named the phenomenon…complete with a demonic explanation…and started telling people that they were being raped by demons…presumably because they were not religious enough.
    Guilt is a powerful ally when you’re waging war on the human psyche.

  4. incubus:
    An evil spirit supposed to descend upon and have sexual intercourse with women as they sleep.
    A nightmare.
    An oppressive or nightmarish burden.
    succubus:
    A female demon supposed to descend upon and have sexual intercourse with a man while he sleeps.
    An evil spirit; a demon.
    Basically a male and female form of the same thing.
