So, last week, our listeners requested (nay, demanded) that we talk about ghost sex in honor of Halloween week.
Shaun, of course, was all in.
Carrie, of course, was like, “Are you all serious?”
Yet, she’s conflict averse so here we go.
The first step to having Shaun’s fantasy come true is apparently attracting the ghost to your house. WE DO NOT SUGGEST TRYING THIS!
Over on SPEAKING OF THE DEAD (link in the podcast notes), there are a few ways/things that attract spooky spirits.
1. Psychic abilities.
2. Neglected homes with neglectful occupants.
3. Passive people.
4. Volatile people and relationships.
5. Old houses.
6. People obsessed with ghosts.
The next thing you have to determine is whether or not ghosts get all hot and bothered like a cast member of the Golden Girls.
According to higgy pop, yes, yes, they do. Oh, wait. No. Maybe?
For as long as humans have been conscious of a spiritual realm, humans have dreamed, fantasized, and (some claim) experienced doing it with ghosts. Medieval legends told the tale of Succubus and Incubus, demons who would invade human bodies and have sex with them. It’s a long-standing, cross-cultural phenomenon, and one that probably isn’t going away anytime soon.
How Does It … Work?
Most people experience ghost sex as a dream, or as they’re falling into or out of sleep. Scientists estimate it’s because our brains are especially susceptible to hallucinations at those times.
Paranormal Activity 2 actress Natasha Blasick described her experience with ghost sex thusly:
Suddenly I could feel that somebody was touching me and the hands were pushing me against my will. And I could feel the weight of the body on top of me my body was pushed in different directions. And at first i w as very confused with all that, then I just decided to relax and it was really, really pleasurable.”
Also from The Cut (which I am now in love with):
Anna Nicole Smith famously had this to say about ghost sex in an interview with FHM in 2004:
“A ghost would crawl up my leg and have sex with me at an apartment a long time ago in Texas. I used to think it was my boyfriend, then one day I woke up and found it wasn’t.”
And Ke$ha made headlines in 2012 for claiming she too had boned a spirit. “It’s about experiences with the supernatural … but in a sexy way,” she told Ryan Seacrest on his radio show. “I had a couple of experiences with the supernatural. I don’t know his name! He was a ghost! I’m very open to it.”
