Comments for Incubus, Sucubus

Incubus, SuccubusIncubus, Succubus: 12/02/09

"Incubus, Succubus" by Neil James Hudson is the second of three short stories in the bisexual erotica collection Like Twin Stars.

The unnamed male protagonist, probably in his late teens, is waiting to be visited by his demon. A person's first sexual encounter in this world is always with a demon and it will forever define that person's place in adulthood. For this young man, he expects his visit will be different because he has feelings for both Thea and Carl.

So what happens to a young bisexual? The answer's pretty obvious; he's visited by two demons. What happens afterwards parallels the shunning that many bisexuals face. Thea rejects his love (even though she's willing to partner with pretty much any other man) and Carl who has left the sexually conservative society says there is no place for him outside the city either.

Though there are sex scenes described with more blatant language than the first story (The Dancer's War) they are set against the context of a desire to belong and the depression that comes from not finding acceptance or love. The story's ending recapitulates the duality of the main character, being both an ascension and a metaphorical suicide.

I received a PDF copy for review.

Sex with demons? Bisexual sex with demons? Sounds like an interesting book.
