The study of succubi or devil women isn’t exactly a passion of mine, but I find myself visiting them in my art from time to time. While succubi aren’t specific to All Hallow’s Eve or autumn equinox, our ancient ancestors believed the wall betweeing the living and the dead/supernatural was thinnest at this time of year. After being buried in my archives, October feels like the right time for this gallery to emerge on the timeline.
I’ve created a few new works for this 2022 edition to blend with several older creations. Hope you enjoy and may your dreams always be wet ~ Michael
What is a succubus? A succubus is a Lilin-demon with lineage that traces as far back to Lilith of the Mesopotamian religion (circa 3500 BC) and coincides with the appearance of Adam in the Book of Genesis. Mesopotamian religion is thought to have been an influence on subsequent religions throughout the world, including the ancient Greeks. The male counterpart is sometimes referred to as an incubus. This may be a bit of misnomer. I’ve read some history suggesting the s/incubus is neither male or female they only take the form necessary to seduce a man or woman. Other historical references state they are female but are shapeshifters and can appear as needed in order to seduce.
Succubi appear in dreams and take the form of a woman in order to seduce men and collect their sperm so that they may propagate their own species of demons. Religious traditions hold that repeated sexual activity with a succubus may result in the deterioration of health or mental state, or even in death.
Representations of Succubi have evolved over years. Their horned appearance, inspired by early artists who were spiritually vested in Christianity, symbolize a direct connection to Lucifer (Devil, Satan). According to lore, when the first woman, dominant-minded Lilith, rejected Adam’s advances in the Garden of Eden, she was cast away by God. Lucifer came to her aid to ensure she could bare children.
Lilith’s offspring (the Lilin Succubi) were initially represented as very attractive and embodied the archetypal energy of sexual Goddesses such as Aphrodite and her equivalent in other cultures. By the medieval period, European artists began depicting succubi as hideous creatures. This was likely an attempt to suppress human sexuality. The idea was that if you were a sexual person, you were opening yourself up to visits from succubi which would result in all sorts of terrible outcomes for you and your family.
One thing I have learned in my journey for deeper meaning is that we can not suppress archetypes for extended periods. The innate dreams of humanity (archetypes) may change in appearance, but they will always manifest themselves. Modern-day Succubi are again appearing as highly desirable temptresses.

[…] The above image is the “featured” image for a gallery focused on the Succubus or Devil Woman that sometimes moves within our dreams. A brief description of the succubus is included for historical reference is also included in the gallery – Succubus – Devil Woman […]
I notice you’re not showing us his clawed up back which must be the most minimal of costs for taking on a succubus while wide awake.
I would LOVE more succubus devil girl work from you.
She’s sexy as hell. Can’t go wrong with demon women.
Appreciate the generous feedback. The demon girls seem to have captured the dreams of men on some level and are very popular for sure 😈
With good reason.
Oh yes 🔥
She can drain me and turn me into an Incubus anytime!
Yes. Awesome works, Michael! Love this.
Thanks brother, I’ve been pleasantly surprised by how well received this image has been.
You are a wonderful artist, and I feel honored when you enjoy one of my works. Thank you 😊✨
Thank you, brother! Appreciate you taking a moment to share your reaction.
Nice one. Good use of that throne.
Appreciate the feedback.
That will be one lucky man who’s dreams she cums too, I mean comes to. :giggle:
After I read cum…I became a little distracted, ha! Yes, a night with this vision would be a night fully spent… 🍆💦
Only men dreams?! Great work Michael!!!
A sexy girl leaving such enticing visions…I like it!😃🔥Perhaps she can pay you a visit after leaving my dreams… Come to think of it, she just might pull you into mine… 🌌✨
Be careful what you wish for, my dear 😉 I can be a dream or a nightmare Wink/Razz Wink/Razz Wink/Razz
I was thinking the same thing! :giggle:
I’m thinking she doesn’t need to be running around in so many different dreams. I suspect she would pull both of you into mine…so I can watch 😈🔥
So damn sexy
That’s awfully inviting!
Right, how can we possibly resist such temptation…🔥
Rather a visit from her than no release at all. Excellent work.
That is the allure, my friend…just as she wishes. 😈🔥Appreciate the feedback on the work 😊
It isn’t sleep that’s approaching… Beautiful work!
No, and I can feel the tension rising… 😈🔥 Glad you enjoyed it 😊

Thanks brother, thanks for sharing your reaction 😈🔥
Really so true said dear..🤗💕😊
Just hot 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥 A fine day to give into temptation.
Sexy Robecca, I think we can all savor a little temptation 😈 I like the five fire emojis…accidental or perhaps a favorite number of mine 😉
All your images are sexy but this is amazing in every way. 💋💋💋💋
Mmmm, thank you sexy Livia…you really left me with some erotic fire over these last few comments 🔥 Even though you aren’t a succubus, I’m sure you still find your way into the sexy dreams of many men. 😘

“One thing I have learned in my journey for deeper meaning is that we can not suppress archetypes for extended periods. The innate dreams of humanity (archetypes) may change in appearance, but they will always manifest themselves.”
I have discovered this to be a true statement.
Thank you for sharing this realization you have had…it is powerful (I think) to have this awareness and to tend to this energy in a healthy way rather than trying to repress it. The harder you push against it, the stronger it comes back.
