Before I tell you my story, note that Hollywood has kinda picked up on this concept. In the original Ghostbusters Movie (a "family" movie), there is a scene towards the end where Dan Aykroyd has a succubus relationship. If that’s a new concept for you, a succubus is a demon in female form that appears in dreams (and imagination) and takes the form of a woman in order to seduce men, usually through sexual activity. In the “bedroom scene” of that movie, a ghost (demon) has sexual activity with Dan Aykroyd. It is unclear what activity it is, it appears to be fellatio but it could be other activity as well. (For the less than 30 second “bedroom scene” click on the picture in the upper part of this present post.)
Now, you may say, that is just Hollywood, those kinds of things don’t really happen, that’s sensationalism. Let me share an experience with you.
As a young man after I was married and a father, I would masturbate when I didn’t feel I got enough sex (remember as a young man, I still had to learn how to communicate better over this issue and also realize that sex wasn’t all about me). I told myself that it was ok if I masturbated to a faceless, nameless, woman in my mind. My images were not tied to pornography as I have never been a viewer of pornography and this was in the era before Al Gore invented the Internet (click here to read about my first experience with porn).
One time, during a shower, I was masturbating to this “woman” and as I completed, I heard very clear, in my mind, a female voice that said, “I’ll be back!” It freaked me out. Was that an overactive imagination or was that an attempt to seduce me into a succubus relationship, away from my spouse and a fulfilling Christian walk? I have thought about that experience a lot since then.
I have been counseling men professionally for 35+ years, and when I talk to men about their masturbation life, I have had some tell me of a similar experience. So, it makes me wonder if there is possibly a demonic experience to some masturbatory experiences. I’m not claiming that this was a succubus action but I have had men tell me of succubus experiences. Very clearly, in some instances of men I have counseled, succubus activity was apparent. We needed to pray and ask God for deliverance of such activity to break different sexual addictions.
I ask you, when you have masturbated did you hear a female voice telling you she wanted more or saying she wanted to come back? If so, is it possible that you were starting the journey toward a succubus relationship?
Tomorrow, we will be discussing whether an unmarried man can masturbate “safely”. Then, Wednesday, we will be discussing whether a married man can masturbate “safely” even if the image in his mind is his wife.
