Incubus(nightmare spirit of lust against women, while they are asleep)

An incubus is a demon in male form who, according to legendary traditions, lies upon sleepers, especially women, in order to engage in sexual activity with them. Its female counterpart is the succubus. An incubus may pursue sexual relations with a woman in order to father a child, as in the legend of hell and ancient demonic spirits. 

 Religious tradition holds that repeated sexual activity with an incubus or succubus may result in the deterioration of health, or even death.

The word incubus is derived from Late Latin incubo (a nightmare induced by such a demon); from incub(āre) (to lie upon). One of the earliest mentions of an incubus comes from Mesopotamia on the Sumerian King List, ca. 2400 BC, where the hero Gilgamesh's father is listed as LiluIt is said that Lilu disturbs and seduces women in their sleep, while Lilitu, a female demon, appears to men in their erotic dreams.Two other corresponding demons appear as well: Ardat lili, who visits men by night and begets ghostly children from them, and Irdu lili, who is known as a male counterpart to Ardat lili and visits women by night and begets from them. These demons were originally storm demons, but they eventually became regarded as night demons because of mistaken etymology.

Debate about the demons began early in the Christian tradition. St. Augustine touched on the topic in De Civitate Dei ("The City of God"). There were too many attacks by incubi to deny them. He stated, "There is also a very general rumor. Many have verified it by their own experience and trustworthy persons have corroborated the experience others told, that sylvans and fauns, commonly called incubi, have often made wicked assaults upon women." Questions about the reproductive capabilities of the demons continued. Eight hundred years later, Thomas Aquinas lent himself to the ongoing discussion, stating, "Still, if some are occasionally begotten from demons, it is not from the seed of such demons, nor from their assumed bodies, but from the seed of men, taken for the purpose; as when the demon assumes first the form of a woman, and afterwards of a man; just so they take the seed of other things for other generating purposes." It became generally accepted that incubi and succubi were the same demon, able to switch between male and female forms. A succubus would be able to sleep with a man and collect his sperm, and then transform into an incubus and use that seed on women. Even though sperm and egg came from humans originally, the spirits' offspring were often thought of as supernatural.

In Brazil and the rainforests of the Amazon Basin, the Boto is a combination of siren and incubus, a very charming and beautiful man who seduces young women and takes them into the river.It is said to be responsible for disappearances and unwanted pregnancies,and it can never be seen by daylight.

The Southern African incubus demon is the Tokolosh. Chaste women place their beds upon bricks to deter the rather short fellows from attaining their sleeping forms. They also share the hole in the head detail and water dwelling habits of the Boto.

In Germany there is the mara or mare, a spirit or goblin that rides on the chests of humans while they sleep, giving them bad dreams (or "nightmares").Belief in the mare goes back to the Norse Ynglinga saga from the 13th century,but the belief is probably even older. The mare was likely inspired by sleep paralysis.

Thank you so much for clearing this up for me because I was told these spirits were from oral sex ( please for give the graphic words) according to this article it is any sexual activity. Great information. 

Blessings Pastor Robin, remember the Bible said, my people suffer lack of knowledge. Not many study on these topics, and that is why there is really no understanding r/>

WE MUST KEEP OUR MINDS GIRDED UP WITH THE TRUTH OF GOD'S WORD, AND B BOLD IN REBUKING THESE DEMONIC SPIRITS IN THE NAME OF JESUS.MEDIATING ON HIS WORD DAY AND NIGHT

If this demon were a human and it was changing from male to female it would be called a transgender...
