I know i few things about the male counterpart of succubus, which is incubus. Their purpose is just the same as the succubus: Love and sex. But there is also some differencies in their behavior. As a spiritual male, they’re pretty much dominant in nature and sometimes overprotective towards the human female. An archetype of masculinity, sort of.
The mythological aspect of a succubus and an incubus is that they are shifters of gender, which is not true. The male and female gender is seperated from eachother and their task is just the same when it comes to humans: Love, affection, sex.
How do I know about incubus? I’ve experienced one in the beginning of my relationship with my wives and he was a little pushy and dominant. He wanted to test me, watch me and participate with my wives. This was before our wedding and a part of the bondingperiod, as I recall it. Right after our first wedding, he left us and never came back. According to my first wife, he was a familymember of hers and he wanted to make sure I was the right man for her.
An incubus is powerfull on their own, just like a succubus. Of course, not all incubus is dominant in nature, but my first wife’s familymember was. I’ve read about incubus that is very careful and shy towards the human female, and other stories of a pushy, rough and dominant personality. But they’re as good listeners as the succubus and will never push it too far. If that ever happens, there’s probably not an incubus.
If anyone seen the movie “The Entity“, which supposed to be about a violent incubus haunting a woman in the 70’s. I can tell you, right now, that entity is not an incubus. It’s not just religion that gives succubus and incubus a bad reputation, it’s in the movies too(based on negative, religious beliefs, of course). Allthough “The Entity” is said to be based on true events, which I will not doubt at all, but it’s behavior is not a “trademark” of an incubus. That was something else.
