    Spectrophilia

    Discussion in 'The Lounge' started by flawed personality, Jul 14, 2018.

    Bit of an odd subject, and there are multiple definitions of this, according to Wikipedia.

    Spectrophilia:

    1 - Sexual attraction to ghosts
    2 - Sexual arousal from images in mirrors
    3 - Phenomena of sexual encounters between ghosts and humans

    Has anyone heard of this, had any experience of this, read about it, or written about it?

    Number 3 is the one that most interests me, as I do have an idea for a story involving this, and was wondering how on earth to go about it.

    Casper the More than Friendly Ghost!

    I've read one story that had something similar to this (It's in the spoiler below).

    The only thing I've read that's close to this is a story about a man who ends up making love to the ghost of his dead wife after she's been haunting him for years. The author describes it as one would assume any sexual encounter scene would be described, though some of the descriptions were changed to make more sense canonically. At the end, when they both climax, she disappears and he never sees her again.

    Ghost sex reminds me of Scary Movie 2.

    Never heard of it, but would be interested to know how it came about.
    Just from the definitions, it sounds very delusional.

    I wanted to explain all my experience with this, but I realize how stupid this will sound. I still don't believe, I have only 1% doubts. This is some kind mental disorder :D. I know...Ok, the short story. I felt "touching"...Several times. Several nights. One night this was "intensive". Like in the striptize bar. You know, the girl is using you, like a chair. And she makes "moves". My erection was weak. Terrified erection :D. So weird...The sex was impossible :D. Obv this is close to impossible for male, even if exist some s*it.
    Sorry for my bad English, at least can sound funny .

    ^ The above is why I always check my bed for ferrets before flicking off the light.

    @flawed personality .. I think the book 'The Entity' could hold content you're looking for.

    What, you're all too young to remember the original Ghostbusters?

    The following is absolutely true. Just wanted to emphasize this since it will sound insane to some people.

    When I was a teenager, there was this room to the left at the top of the stairs, in my parent's old Victorian house, that always felt off. But, it seemed like every time I went in there, I became extremely aroused, even though I didn't like the way the room felt. So it became a bit of an obsession to me for quite some time, and I would go up there and experience whatever was causing those terrifying, yet extraordinarily sensual feelings.

    I'm glad we don't live in that house anymore. I've had much worse things happen to me in previous places, but none were as emotionally conflicting as what I experienced in that room; I knew something awful was in there with me, but I couldn't resist its influence.

    Over the years, I've told a few people about the bizarre things I've experienced since childhood, which I've never questioned, because my brother and I, when we were children, awakened one night, screaming and traumatized, after having experienced the very same nightmare: our closet opened, a light suddenly emerged and grew inside it, and then a swarm of enormous spiders began flying out of the light and attacked us.

    That one experience convinced both of us, even as we grew up, that something undeniably real had happened to us, and I learned from that childhood experience not to always dismiss things just because they have no rational explanation.

    Remember the scene in the movie Poltergeist where the mom got wall-raped by some invisible thing? Well, they played it down quite a bit, it was more like just wall molestation and feelsies. But it was based on a supposedly real event, also detailed in much more graphic realism in a movie called The Entity, starring Barbara Hershey. Apparently this woman was being raped repeatedly by an invisible entity.

    Spielberg was supposedly just the producer (executive?) for Poltergeist, but there's controversy over whether he actually directed it and just couldn't put his name on it because of reasons, so gave directing credit to Tobe Hooper. I didn't know anything about all this, but was a big Spielberg fan and when I saw the movie it was just obvious to me he was the director. For one thing it came on the heels of Jaws and Close Encounters and was about a big sociological event that was looming large in public awareness at the time. I believe after creating a big sociological event with Jaws (one of the early blockbuster movies where people lined up around the block, saw it over and over, and then were afraid to go in the water) he become very interested in them, and did one about UFOs and then one about ghosts. They all deal with suburban families and the effects the 'event' has on the family as well as society itself. He also did the same in ET. I call these his suburban movies. All this is just to support the case that he directed Poltergeist.

    Anyway, he did massive research into these sociological happenings, and it's obvious somebody did in Poltergeist as well. Sorry, I'm getting way off topic here. But my point is that there definitely are many cases of ghosts and humans bumping uglies. Check into the ideas of the incubus and succubus for one thing, spirits that lay on top of sleepers and have sex with them. Nuns and monks reported a lot of that.

    I looked it up on the known porn streamers not that long ago, out of curiousty, I promise. Spectrophilia does yield it's limited share of hits.
    Bizarre hits.

    I had exactly this with the attic way back when I was still living with my mother. Later when I started secretly smoking I smoked out whatever it was in there and made it mine though.
    I always just kind of figured (later, when I became capable of such reasoning, anyway) it was the sort of subtle fear I felt that indirectly caused the arousal.
    Ofcourse, it could just have been a stiff draft, we're talking teenage boy here.

    I should probably clarify that I would be writing it as a kind of otherworldly romance, not a horror story. I'm a romantic through and through. Can't help it. But I like putting it in different contexts.

    I think there's too many people in there already. :D

    The virtual sex in Demolition Man was better than in Sleeper. Was Strange Days better, or just the modern update?
