PVC Does Not A Succubi Costume Make

I like shiny Succubi costumes. I freely admit that and, as well, I tend to give a better rating to them. I just think that overall they tend to look better if they are done in the right way… Mostly…

PVC Devil Woman

This is called, simply, the PVC Devil Woman costume and it comes with the PVC costume with an attached tail and the PVC horns and the wristlets.

The stockings and garters do not come with the costume.

It sells for $45 US, but it can be found for less easily enough.

The one thing that really bothers me about this costume is that, on some sites, this is described as being a “cat devil” costume because, and I can see this, the horns are so wide that they can be mistaken for cat’s ears.

I really don’t like this much. There isn’t really a lot of sexy here and seductiveness is even less so.

I also can’t see a way to make this better considering that the entire costume looks… cheap. It’s not sexy in the way I like sexy nor is it honestly well made from what I can see.

I won’t give it a zero, though I have to admit that I was very tempted to do so…

One half pitchfork out of five.

I’m still looking…

Desires 91

What is it that Succubi can offer?


Desires – Beginnings

By BStyles and Tera S

Part Twenty-Seven


Her hands made him quiver…

Her tongue made him gasp…

But her lips made him moan out loud…a new experience this, the realm of physical delight. Again his thoughts meandered to ponder the truly wondrous world of mortals, before Tera’s lips consumed his thoughts in pleasure.

Like seemingly all malekind with no idea how to occupy themselves during such an act, Martin found his hands nestling in her hair. A short moment was taken as he enjoyed the luxurious feel of her reddish locks between his fingers, before his hands strayed to brush against her horns. Remembering her earlier reactions, he gave them a few little touches and caresses. His wings twitched as well, quivering with his delight before he brought them around his body once again, their gentle weight falling around to almost envelop Tera entirely, once more spreading pleasant feathery softness over her bare skin.


Angels can have pleasures too…

A Preview of Something to Come

Something of a previewIt’s been a week for me and as such I haven’t really been able to focus on anything creative.

As such I haven’t anything finished to share today on the Tale, but as an aside, I can share this little part of a manip that I am working on…

It’s been a long time since I have done some manipping and perhaps that is a way for my creativity to start to return again…

I know the title of this will be “Something” and I think I have a vague idea of what it might be about as well…

The part of that being about one of the Succubi is a given I think… It’s the rest of the story that needs to be figured out better than it is….

Still, there is a possibility it might become more than something and that has to be… something… I suppose…

We shall see…

A Review of Succubus Bites – Tasmin by Lila Shaw

Succubus Bites - Tasmin by Lila Shaw

Succubus Bites – Tasmin by Lila Shaw

There is something that bothers me sometimes. It is something called background. Now, a lot of stories don’t have that. There are the occasional ones that do and when it is there, then I expect the story to be… interesting.

I don’t want anything more than a Succubus that I can like, a story that I want to read and, if at all possible, at the end of the story I’d like something good to happen. I don’t often have that happen, really it is a rare thing overall. It is more disappointing to me when an author, who I know can write delicious Succubi, writes one that I… well… I’d like to pitchfork… repeatedly.

Just because the world has gone to hell in a hand basket does not mean that a Succubus has to as well…

The darkness cannot win.

  • Title: Succubus Bites – Tasmin
  • Author: Lila Shaw
  • Length: 14 Pages
  • IBSN: LLSHWX0000002
  • Publishing Date: August 4, 2013
  • This work at All Romance Books

It is the story of:

Tasmin lives in a post-apocalyptic wasteland where the few survivors must fight for scarce resources. Picked up as a hitchhiker, she makes a deal with her opportunistic savior; only a starving succubus is not always capable of reigning in her appetite.

Tasmin is a Succubus in trouble. She needs to feed, and with the entire world around her just about wiped out, that’s a difficult thing to do. Alone and desperate, she encounters someone who offers what passes for help in this world. The problem is that Tasmin is desperate and desperate Succubi do desperate things…

I have to be blunt and say that Tasmin is coldhearted and cares only about herself and no one else. She sees others as simply a means to survive and not much else of them of worth. Her goal is to survive and leaving a trail of death in her wake is, at least to her, just part of being a Succubus and nothing more.

While some of that is a reflection upon the time she exists in, and I understand that, the problem for me was that her thoughts were focused on her feed, how to get it, and not much else. And even afterwards her attitude is… well… it left a bad taste to me in her words and actions.

I have read other works by this author, and overall I have enjoyed all of them very much. This story just didn’t do anything for me. There was a darkness ingrained into every character, every scene, every moment, that sucked the life out of the story. While that again is a reflection upon the world Tasmin lives in, I need some balance in the story to enjoy it and I didn’t see any of that. Tasmin is simply a stereotypical Succubus out to feed and that is her entire existence. I find that kind of character to be one-dimensional.

Ross, the other character in the story was somewhat more interesting. I would have liked to know more about him, but that just didn’t happen for the rush to get the two of them into bed together and have what happens… happen.

While I didn’t like the story as a whole, the background of why things are the way they are, some of the background characters that are mentioned, and other little touches were interesting in their own right. The most interesting part of the story was, at least to me. a little quote at the beginning about Succubi and their diet. I have to admit that it made me smile and perhaps that is the problem here.

I expected one kind of story and I read something else. Personally I would have liked to read more about that quote and the author of it than the story that followed… That I think is the biggest shame.

While the work is well written, there is depth to the words, favour to the conversation and more, it isn’t enough for me to like it as much as I had hoped I would.

I’ll give this work two pitchforks out of five.

I just really did not care all that much about Tasmin, or for that matter Ross. I didn’t care for her attitude, how she acted or what her reaction was at the end of the story. Yes it is a mess of a world, yes it changes beings and not for the better either. However darkness without light in it makes for a story that I cannot enjoy.

That might be my personal fault, but I expected something better.

The author notes elsewhere that this work connects to a larger work of theirs called Succubus Bites, an anthology of Succubus stories they will be releasing in the near future. I hope, more than I can say, that the balance of the works in that collection are more in tune with this author’s other writings… This particular story just didn’t have much soul in it…

And isn’t that what all stories about Succubi need?

A Slightly Adult Morrigan Aensland YouTube

There are, not too surprisingly, quite a lot of very adult Morrigan Aensland images… I mean, really adult… So this YouTube I found, which has images of her, isn’t all that adult I will admit. It is, however, interesting to me that the person who uploaded it felt they they had to add a disclaimer to it…

And to be honest, I’m not sure why they did really…

And, in case you can’t see in on the Tale:

Pardon the slightly odd music, I suppose it does make some sense to have a video game theme. There are a lot of images, and of them all I think I liked this one the best…


I really do need to find this work… And I will…

A Review of Cock Craving Witch by Lauren Stone

Cock Craving Witch by Lauren Stone

Cock Craving Witch by Lauren Stone

It is, really, a given that when you make a deal with a devil… or any of the Succubi or Incubi for that matter… Things never go exactly the way you expect or want them to. There are so many stories that take that idea and twist it and turn it to the point where the one that summoned the evil in question gets… well screwed in many different ways and directions.

Now, it has become somewhat of a trope and as such I have pretty much seen many of the possible ones that involve Succubi and Incubi.

I did find one work that takes that trope and adds a bit of mind control and time travel to the mix to make the story more interesting overall.

The problem is that the author needed and editor to make it all work together and they didn’t seem to find one…

  • Title: Cock Craving Witch
  • Author: Lauren Stone
  • Publishing Date: January 2, 2012
  • Length: 14 Pages
  • This work at

The work is the story of:

Amber is a contemporary witch, intent on helping her best friend solve a sexual problem. Only when Amber summons a demon to help, she gets much more than she expected. The demon is a sexual being who wants nothing more than complete control over the desires of Amber and her friends.

Amber is an eighteen year old witch who just wants to help her friend. Problem is that she isn’t all that well versed in magic, she goes against the advice of her mentor, and in the end messes up everything to the point that really bad things happen. And when you mess up and an Incubus is involved… you really can be screwed in ways that you cannot imagine.

And that is the point where this story does get interesting. The problems she creates for herself, how she tries to solve them, and what that continues to create as problems are interesting to read. That makes for a good story and with that comes the expectation that the things that connect to the main plot, sex or otherwise, will be as interesting..

It should have been, but then the problems I had with the other work from this author that I reviewed last week creep into this one. Lots of spelling, tense, and other writing errors that just made the story as a whole so very hard to get through. It’s hard to enjoy the heat of a story when the spelling or grammar just wrecks anything you are trying to imagine in your mind.

The Incubus of the story, Darren, was rather stereotypical which was a shame to be honest about it. He could have been interesting, but all that really mattered was the sex and the control to him. Otherwise there wasn’t a lot of character there to invest it.

Some warm to hot sex scenes, but again the writing was difficult to get through and that hurt the work overall. It is also very short in length, could have had more in it, and I think if the work was edited and expanded some that it would be, again, a lot more than it is.

One other thing. This work is no longer published on Smashwords where I originally found it, but it is on Amazon currently. I can only hope that the author fixed the errors in the story first before they published on Amazon.

I’ll give this work one and a half pitchforks out of five.

The author needs an editor. Just that alone would make a real difference to this work. Better flow of writing makes a story that could have been, one that was.

Succubi Image of the Week 293

I love stylized vector art of Succubi. One of the very few pieces that really, I think, show a Succubus at her best will be the Succubi Image of the Week this time on the Tale… We don’t see all of her, but there is no doubt that she is one of the Succubi…

Burning Steps by Pryanyk

Burning Steps
by Pryanyk

This work is called Burning Steps and is by an artist on DeviantArt called Pryanyk. You can find the original page I found this work here and the artist’s page on DeviantArt is here.

I love the latex look in this art. Mind you I tend to like Succubi more when they are wearing some kind of latex, but this really just looks… right. Love the shoes, just the right sort of thing that a Succubus on the hunt would be wearing too. The tail has, as all tails should have, its own personality. Playful? Teasing? A touch evil? I think it is all of those things and more…

Then comes the mystery… What does she look like? She must have red skin obviously, possibly raven hair and green eyes? The thoughts and fantasies come from this art so very much and each of them are, I think. delicious…

There will be more from this artist here on the Tale in the future I promise…

They do, I think, create wonderful Succubi…
