Ghosts And Sex – The Ultimate Paranormal Bliss

By Elizabeth Black

Here's something you don't read every day. The headline was surreal: Two Women Report Ghost Has Been Having Sex With Them.

Yes, you read that right.

Two women in Washington State in the U. S. claimed that a ghost "has been placing sensors on their bodies and visiting them in their house […] They said that the ghost has been having sexual intercourse with them."

I swear I'm not making this up.

I had heard of women claiming to have been attacked by ghosts, but it was surreal to see such a matter-of-fact article about it in a local, modern newspaper. Have you ever seen the movie "The Entity"? It's a 1981 flick about a woman who was repeatedly raped by a ghost in front of her husband and children. The movie was slammed by critics when it first came out because it was rather explicit, but it became a cult favorite. It was supposedly based on the real life astral rapes of Carla Moran. Whether Moran actually exists has been up for debate for years. I've seen a reality show that supposedly interviewed her and had shown pictures of the ghost that had raped her, but the jury is still out on whether or not the woman actually exists. The movie was remade in Japan, and it is slated to be released in 2009. I'm curious to see it, especially since I saw the original years ago. Can't wait until it comes out on DVD.


I am always interested in ghosts and sex because lots of my erotic short stories have ghosts and sex in them. Ghosts are very versatile. They're perfect for tales of voyeurism. In one of my short stories for Scarlet Magazine, "The Party Crasher", I include a male ghost fingering his widow's breast while she is sitting at a séance, in full view of everyone. Of course, the ghost is invisible, so her comments to him to stop pawing at her are amusing to those sitting around her.

I have a special penchant for ornery ghosts. My new novel, "The Haunting of the Sandpiper Inn", has several ghosts in it, including one very ornery and horny ghost. That book has just been accepted by Whiskey Creek Press Torrid, and it will be released sometime in 2009.

It would probably be exciting to have consensual sex with a ghost, but being raped by a ghost would be horrifying. First off, you can't see the attack coming. Ghosts tend to be invisible, but not always. My erotic horror story "Sweet Spot", published in the Halloween short story collection "Monster Mash" by Whiskey Creek Press Torrid, is based on an Irish myth called "The Fatal Phantom of Eringle Traugh". This "ghost" – or demon, it's hard to tell exactly what it really was – appears to mourners in a cemetery in the form of the type of man or woman they are most attracted to. In my story "Sweet Spot", it appears to Derek in the form of a luscious woman who had used him up and dumped him five years earlier. He knows the story of "the hag" who haunts the cemetery, but ignores it so that he can get his revenge. The otherworldy sex they have is very rough and steaming hot, and once you finish the story, you realize that Derek would have been better off if he had left the cemetery with the rest of the mourners.

At the same time, a playful ghost could make otherworldly sex lots of fun. I wrote a short story for Scarlet Magazine called "Things That Go Hump In The Night" that involved a sexy spanking ghost. The fun thing about this playful ghost was that, since she was invisible, you couldn't tell when she was going to spank the woman who booked the motel room for the night. When she did, it was very arousing. People who like to be blindfolded while engaging in a little fetish play probably know how exciting it can be to not know when the spanking is coming. That's what gave me the idea for my story in the first place.

So, not only do ghosts make great characters for sexy fiction, they really do like to have sex with humans, if that Washington State case is any indication. Bored with your very human partner? Find a horny ghost! You'd be in good company.

Hi, Gracen! Thanks for the post. I have some updates about the remake of "The Entity". Apparently, Hideo Nakata is directing it. He's very good. He was the director of some of the Ring movies and "The Eye". He's bound to make "The Entity" pretty frightening.

I like my ghosts scary, but I also like them cheeky and romantic. "Topper" is a great ghost movie, as is nearly everyone's favorite, "Ghost".

Hi Elizabeth. Thanks for guest blogging with us! It's been great having you here. I saw The Eye and the Ring (first one), which I thought were great. The Entity will probably be just as spooky!

Thanks for the great post. I love the picture here, it is awesome how the 2 lovers are coming from the candles ( at least I am calling them candles :) )

Elizabeth Black said...

I thought they were candles at first glance too, Sarabelle, but I think they're actually incense sticks. I love that picture, too.

I own the Japanese "Ringu" (the whole series plus the Japanese TV series in 13 episodes) and the Korean "The Eye". I LOVE Asian horror movies. They're especially scary.

Ghosts in movies and books can be so romantic. They're not always scary. I love "Topper" and "Ghost". "The Ghost And Mrs. Muir" is also another fave of mine.

Wow, I was not aware of this movie. Will have to look into it. It definitely sounds scary, especially if it's true.

Great post. I enjoyed reading it. The movie looks intriguing and I really love the cover

So glad y'all liked the article. It was a joy to write.

I saw the original "The Entity" years ago, and it was very scary, albeit a bit cheesy. I'm familiar with Hideo Nakata, who is directing the remake. He made some scary Japanese movies, so I'm sure the remake of "The Entity" will scare my socks off. Good! I love a good horror movie. :)
