It’s shiny, but those don’t look like horns…

Fire And Desire CostumeThere are some costumes that are, at least a little sexy. There are a lot more however that are tacky, which seems to be the most common thing I happen upon. Things become a lot more odd when the costume claims to be, at least somewhat, devilish, but then horns… aren’t.

This is called the Fire And Desire Costume and it comes with the metallic catsuit, gloves, and what are called horns, but I don’t see that by any means being accurate. Shoes are not included, nor is a tail, and this can be found for $59 on the web.

Those are not horns. I’ll accept cat ears, but I can’t see those being anything like horns really. So, in truth, this is a cat costume being sold as a devil costume.

And that’s disappointing in a lot of ways. Mainly that they couldn’t find a single pair of horns to go with this at all?

On the other hand, perhaps the intent is for someone to buy this and an accessory kit of horns and tail. Which, for the record, sells for $25 on the site I found this costume on. It’s even offered on the same page as this costume.

I will admit that I like the catsuit, to a point, the gloves I don’t care for, nor the “horns”. This really comes down to a mostly sexy piece of shiny red lycra and not much else.

But then, it is a start which has to be worth something I suppose…

One and a half out of five pitchforks.

Not the worst, but…

A Review of the The Summoning series by Kad Aver

The Summoning by Kad Aver

The Summoning by Kad Aver

There is a certain temptation that authors are attracted to when writing stories about incubi. The thought of mixing horror with some erotica is, as a whole, really quite attractive to them. There’s the chance to write something that has a horrid character taking control of another, then doing awful things, and so on. Then comes the possibility of writing some scenes that, if ever filmed, would simply cause the movie to be banned because the images are just too far outside being acceptable.

I do not like horror, I’ve said this many times. I especially do not like horror that seems to have no purpose, direction, or meaning behind it. Sometimes that is all there is and it simply is disappointing.

The first work in the series is:

  • Title: The Summoning
  • Author: Kad Aver
  • Length: 11 Pages
  • Publishing Date: May 27, 2015
  • This work at Amazon.com

It tells the story of:

This is a story of extreme horror and violence. It pulls no punches and it is not for the faint of heart or for those easily offended.

Adriana is a full-figured woman with who just hasn’t seemed to fit into the wild Sorority Sister lifestyle in today’s shallow society. When she comes across a spell book in a small shop near her collage, she decides to use it to summon a being that can make her every dream a reality. However, Adriana soon learns that you shouldn’t mess with the darkness lest the darkness mess back. Her spell calls forth a powerful, sexually charged demon with its own agenda. An agenda that leads Adriana down a path of pleasure and pain unlike anything she has ever imagined.

Adriana finds a book, sees it as a joke and finds that she has summoned an incubus and then things go downhill from there.

I will draw attention to the summary of this work and the warning the author gives. This work is, quite simply filled with over the top violence, cardboard characters and a plot that only serves to drive the horror aspects of the story onwards. There’s nothing, at least for me, attractive in the work at all and it is, quite possibly, the most violent 11 pages that I have read in some time.

The incubus isn’t named, only referred to as “Incubus” and in that being the case, there’s really a barrier built up that allows for the wide range of quite awful things that occur to Adriana in the work. The plot is quite direct in its intentions, there’s no room for character development, or anything else really, save getting to the horror aspects of the plot and mixing them with some tepid erotica to try to bring some heat into things.

I expect, for some that enjoy horror that is violent and has some questionable erotica along for the ride, this might be something they will enjoy. However, I can’t say that. I need story, there isn’t much of one, I need characters to care about, I didn’t, and when it comes to heat, it’s nice to have, but mixing violence into that, and to the extreme at times, doesn’t work for me.

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

The Second Coming of Incubus by Kad Aver

The Second Coming of Incubus by Kad Aver

The second work in this series follows along after the events of the first work where we learn what happened to Adriana, what the incubus wants, and brings in another group of victims. If the first work was slasher themed, the second is a sonority house horror.

I had thought the first work was over the top when it came to the violent nature of the story, but the second work goes well past those limits into events and actions that slip into the level of comic book violence at times. Having a measure of erotica with that just didn’t work at all.

The second work in the series is:

  • Title: The Second Coming of Incubus
  • Author: Kad Aver
  • Length: 19 Pages
  • ASIN: B0108MB9S6
  • Publishing Date: June 22, 2015
  • This work at Amazon.com

It tells the story of:

Two years after the assault on Adriana, a young sorority sister accidentally summons the Incubus when she finds The Book beneath the floorboards of Adriana’s old room. Incubus longs to be free of the tether that holds him in thrall to The Book. Longs to find Adriana.

For him to be free, blood must be spilled — And it will be as Incubus makes everyone unfortunate enough to be in the house pay in sexual agony and blood.

Time passes and the book awaits other to complete the summoning. This happens, the incubus is freed and a sonority suffers.

The second work just continues the same theme of violence, but rather that remaining at a slasher movie level, the story takes that theme to the next level, involving a list of characters who all come to ends that are comic book like but not before being made to go through all sort of “erotic” moments that do not end well.

The characters remain cardboard, the plot is non-existent, save for the theme of the incubus having his way with the female characters in the most violent means possible. There is not one character that has purpose in the work save to be a victim to the incubus and that was really disappointing.

The erotica has no heat, the story is lacking, the plot means nothing overall. Again, for me, there wasn’t anything that was attractive because there wasn’t a point to the events in the story, and with the lack of personalities as well, there wasn’t anything to keep me interested in the story when it progressed into violence for the sake of it.

Zero pitchforks out of five.

Here’s the thing. There are some authors that can write horror erotica well, M.E. Hydra is a prime example of this. There is plot, there is character, there is more to the story than simply the horror aspects of it.

Finding the story among all else is the challenge.

A Review of the Satiating The Succubus series by Jennifer Coomes

Satiating The Succubus: First Feeding by Jennifer Coomes

Satiating The Succubus: First Feeding by Jennifer Coomes

A review of a series that was abandoned at the very moment when a larger story seemed to be about to be told. That, of course, is rather irritating for many reasons overall, but the major one is simply that the story really was interesting and different.

Telling a story about a succubus leads naturally to the question of how they manage to feed. In this series, I have to admit that the author came up with what I think is the most unique method possible to do so.

While i liked the story and the concept, there is one thing I really didn’t like. It might be a good idea that the author pick one spelling of their name to use and stick with it. It is Jennifer Coomes or Jennifer Combs? While it really doesn’t matter to the story itself, trying to find more works by this author if they can’t use the same time twice is a problem and it shouldn’t be.

The first work in the series is:

  • Title: Satiating The Succubus: First Feeding
  • Author: Jennifer Coomes
  • Length: 16 Pages
  • ASIN: B010YT1E10
  • Publishing Date: July 4, 2015
  • This work at Amazon.com

The work tells the story of:

Amy’s not sure what’s happening to her. She hungers for sex constantly, and the first guy she sleeps with ends up dead! She eventually learns what’s going on: she’s a succubus, and needs to “feed” by having sex! Every time she feeds, though, she gets stronger, hotter, and hungrier. She gets a job working as a nurse at a hospital, and starts sleeping with the coma patients to feed her desires. This first book follows her discovery of her powers, what they mean, and a couple of sexy encounters with buff guys (some of whom don’t quite know what’s going on…).

Amy tells the story of her life from her first awakening as a succubus, through her high school life and then into learning to be a nurse. Along the way she learns what she is capable of, how much it scares her, and what happens when she loses control. Something unexpected happens and then her life gets more complicated, and for a succubus, that’s never a good thing.

One of the things that gave me pause was how the story was told from Amy’s perspective. She refers to herself often as a succubus, then explains, almost casually, that she read about it on the internet, but that doesn’t explain how she learned her powers. Learning by mistake would be a real problem and that doesn’t seem to be what happens, but it isn’t explained.

As Amy’s story is told from her perspective, that makes for both some very hot and very odd moments overall. Her perspective when she is feeding, what she sees in the minds of the others, how she shapes their thoughts and desires, altering their reality is really very well done. It was a nice touch that her powers, as they grow, make her wings appear and shift her eyes to black.

There isn’t really a complete succubus transformation, though the more Amy feeds, the more her overall looks change and when she doesn’t, she returns to her normal looks. That then brings in an interesting subplot through her high school years, but also in how her “other self” as she refers to it, pushes Amy to take more and more. However, there is such a thing as her conscience saying no, save for a very much Lost Girl-ish encounter at the beginning of the work, and otherwise a few “bad” men being taken in a rather ugly way at one point.

Still, that does show Amy still has some humanity in her. At least until she starts her nursing career and then discovers a new way to feed. This is the part of the work that I thought was really very unique and something I had never really considered. Amy feeds on coma patients to survive. That becomes a doubled-edged sword eventually, but in spite that, the author’s solution was perfect in many ways.

Not the least of which is that Amy’s powers allow her to slip into the dreams of the patients, which then leads to some very hot succubus mind control and reality shifting within the dreams themselves. That is written very well and held my attention quite well.

The overall plot is a bit scattered, not really finding a footing until the last third of the work which then drives Amy to an encounter which then leads into the second work in the series. There’s no focus to things overall, Amy going from feed to feed, taking from one after another, sometimes having a very uncaring attitude, sometimes not. She’s a scattered character, without focus for much of the story.

While she talks about learning about her powers, there’s really nothing told of her doing so. Over each feeding, she is better and better at it, but seems to be on her own trying to find her way. The second work in the series seems to suggest this isn’t true however, so that is confusing.

Amy’s character is written strongly, but she seems to be missing some bits and pieces of her personality that really didn’t come out in the story. The time spent in telling about her past, what she has been through, her mistakes and so on, is well done and kept me in the story throughout. Even when things turned confusing, even a bit odd, that wasn’t enough to really pull me out of the story.

It is short however, and considering all of the moments in Amy’s life that were skimmed over, I found myself wishing the author had split this work into three parts and written at least as much as this one for each of them. There needs to be more world building here than there is, considering this is a series. There’s a lot going on here, there’s a lot of promise, but rushing through the details means that things are missed and they are here which speaks towards the next work in the series where the author needed them badly.

Three and a half out of five pitchforks.

Well written, the succubus erotica was very hot, the dreamscapes and mind control worked very well. There are some missing points along the way, some aspects of Amy’s learning about her powers, how they work that weren’t explored and if felt like something was left out of the story to be revealed later. A very good opening to the series, it offered a lot to think about along with the erotica and I liked that. I just wish there was more to read than there is.

Satiating the Succubus: Alex's Awakening by Jennifer Coomes

Satiating the Succubus: Alex’s Awakening by Jennifer Coomes

To an extent, some of that was in the next work in the series, but barely so.

The second work took things from the other main character’s perspective, that being Alex, the last man that Amy feeds from in the prior work. It tells his story, what happens to him as a result of what Alex did, and the dangers that begin to form, both to himself and to his family… and to Amy.

But like the first work in the series, there’s a lot unsaid, there’s a massive cliffhanger at the end that’s never resolved as well. The other thing that bothered me is that the book summary really is a bit misleading.

The second work is:

  • Title: Satiating the Succubus: Alex’s Awakening
  • Author: Jennifer Coomes
  • Length: 20 Pages
  • ASIN: B011HEY7S8
  • Publishing Date: July 12, 2015
  • This work at Amazon.com

The work tells the story of:

Alexander Simmons ends up in a life-changing accident, and finds himself comatose for two months. He’s awoken by a succubus attempting to drain his life essence, but finds himself instead invigorated by her. He tries to retrace the steps that brought him to this point, and finds himself in some sticky situations.

Alex tells the story of his encounter with his sister, how that led to him being in a coma, and then waking to find a succubus feeding on him. But things don’t end there, and when he returns to his sister, things are very different.

The work is told from Alex’s perspective, which is interesting and quite a lot different from Amy’s in the prior work. There are hints that something is odd about Alex, a moment with his sister that is rather awkward and leads to Alex being in a coma. The work is split into three parts, the before, the encounter with Amy, and then the after when Alex goes to see his sister and things take a rather darker turn.

The main erotica in the work is Amy’s feeding on Alex, his dreamscape that leans very much into a BDSM bit of prose that is a little odd, a little off, but reads with some heat. The better part is the “feeling” that Alex has as Amy has her way with him in the real world, how those feelings come to him overall.

The story gets very odd when Alex wakes up, his exit from the hospital makes no sense at all, and the work lost me at that point. Once past that, Alex goes directly to his sister, confronts her, and then they have their tryst. In the midst of that, Alex becomes, it seems, an incubus, his sister suffers for that, and then the story rushes to a close.

It’s that last two pages that I have the real issue with. Alex is far too calm, too uncaring for what happened to his sister. It’s like he’s known he’s been an incubus for some time now, but prior to that moment, he showed no sign of it. That just was confusing.

Then, to make things more odd, something is mentioned about Amy seeing others about Alex and that doesn’t make a lot of sense either. She never spoke of them before, never suggested that there was others of her kind to talk to. All of a sudden there is, there is a “prophecy” for them and the then story crashes to an ending.

The work isn’t as good as the first work for the simple reason that there’s not a real hook to Alex. His story has something to tell, but that’s mixed into other things, other thoughts, and by the time the erotica comes, that story is buried and can’t be found.

Three out of five pitchforks.

I didn’t particularly like the ending, Alex’s almost shrugging off of what happened. The ending also left a major plot point dropped into the series that had never been mentioned before. If the series had continued, that wouldn’t be so bad, but there’s not been anything after this and so the series is left unfinished and incomplete.

It’s a shame because the series seemed to be on the verge of getting to a larger story, explaining more about Amy’s past, the world of the succubi and incubi, and what it all means to Amy and Alex. Stories never to be told it seems and that’s a shame all things considered…

Never Need To Be By TeraS

A story today with a bit of a hidden meaning, or perhaps that meaning will be one that really isn’t so hidden for those that know. Sometimes there are things that need to be said, but then they can also be the things that …


Never Need To Be
By TeraS


There are moments when Tera can be indecisive. They are rare, and most would never notice them when they happen. Still, they do, and she is quite aware of them within her own thoughts.

The problem on this particular day wasn’t one where the universe hung on her next choice. No, it was a very simple question that, normally, might have a simple answer. However, nothing for Tera ever really was simple, even if the outcome only was a result of her believing that point. This day mattered very much to her … to her dear friends on the other side of the fence, the koi pond marking the edges of where their worlds met … to her and her Eternal, for reasons that never really could be put into words, but then never really needed to be.

She had spent a very long time thinking.

Trinkets and gifts weren’t right. They didn’t express her love. Recalling a certain decorative plate she had given before, she smiled at what her Eternal had told her about that moment, the gasp of surprise, the look of amazement.

A card, no matter how lovely the words, couldn’t say what needed to. Oh, she had sent many cards in the past, but she knew just how awful her handwriting was—more so when she kept having to stop, wipe away tears and then continue writing. The thought did make that smile turn bemused. A queen with terrible handwriting: such an impossible thing, of course … but Tera was never an ordinary queen.

Flowers? Well, she had given them before, a particularly lovely rose bush once. Looking out her kitchen window, Tera could just make it out over the fence, the red blooms and green leaves just beginning to sprout, marking the arrival of spring where they resided now. Those thoughts made her smile become a thoughtful one.

She looked towards the home across the way, her fingernails tapping a beat upon the countertop in rhythm with her considerations for some time. Finally she made up her mind and turned away from the window.

A short time later, or not so short—time was an illusion, after all—a woman with ebon hair wearing a red sweater and blue jeans, made her way along a certain sidewalk towards a certain home in the garden of which a certain rose bush grew. Her heels clicked lightly upon the cobblestone walk, a moment later and she knocked lightly upon the door. She wondered if she looked right, if she had managed to look right, to simply be herself in the ways that matter most. After a time her thoughts had come to wondering if they were home when she heard the turning of a doorknob.

The door opened, a soul she knew through their love shone brightly there. A smile greeted her: “Hello.”

Tera smiled: “Hi.” For the first time in ages, the Queen of the Succubi fidgeted before she continued, while the lady in the doorway waited patiently: “I was trying to figure out something today.”

There was a moment … it wasn’t really an awkward one, more of a sudden realization of who
the guest was, and the surprise that she was standing on the doorstep.

She tugged at her hair: “I’ve sent flowers, cards, gifts before. I couldn’t figure out what would be right. There didn’t seem to be anything that really said the right thing, in the right way.” She shrugged slightly: “So that leaves … me. I just wanted to say … Happy birthday.”

The answer was a hug as Tera was pulled into a warm embrace, crying softly in the moment for all this meant to her. For the longest time, there were no words said; there really didn’t need to be any. But then the moment passed, the lady insisting that Tera come in, tears and all, for she was being silly.

Hours passed, the two talking, tea being shared, the occasional bit of laughter drifting from the porch where they rested together, looking out over the garden, where the rose bush was starting to bloom. The visiting queen was tracing a fingertip over the rim of her cup when she admitted something to her hostess during a pause in their time together: “I don’t say the words enough … what you mean to us. I know I need to say them.”

Her neighbor answered: “There never needs to be.”

It is a simple truth, one that transcends all else. The love of a family shared never needs to be explained, never needs to be said. When one knows, one simply does.

And so the words never need to be said, for they live within the souls of those we touch and love.

The words never need to be said, but, on that birthday, on that doorstep, in smiles and hugs, they were. And Tera went home quite sure it was she who received the gift.

A Review of Infernal Desires by Prudence Sinclaire

Infernal Desires by Prudence Sinclaire

Infernal Desires by Prudence Sinclaire

There are some works I review which, sadly, no longer can be found. It’s more the shame when the story is actually quite interesting, is written well, and tells a story that is different in its own way. This particular work is from several years in the past, but like all works about the Succubi and the Incubi, it too deserves its moment of recognition.

There comes a time when a young succubus has ‘the talk’ with her mother. She learns about what she is, what she can do, and about what it’s like to taste a soul. But even after having the talk, that doesn’t mean that she’s going to be able to control herself, her powers or that of those around her…

The work tells the story of:

Victoria had never been so embarrassed as the night she almost ate her boyfriend’s soul. After a quick talk with her mother, Vicki learns she’s a succubus who’s just come into her powers. As Vicki struggles to control her newfound abilities, will she remain true to her human intentions or will she give in to her demonic lust?

Vicki finds herself having a problem. She has a boyfriend, but almost took his soul. Her mother has explained that she’s a succubus, and Vicki is one as well. The problem comes in that Vicki can’t control her powers and there are a lot of people wanting a piece of her. Life’s hard when you are a succubus after all.

This is really a cute and fun work that has a slightly different take on being a Succubus that I did rather like. The work focuses on Vicki, what she experiences, and all that comes with her succubus powers coming into being. There’s a touch of mind control here and there, some nicely hot scenes of erotica as well. But what’s more interesting is Vicki’s reaction to everything that she experiences and, most of all, the talk she has with her mother.

We never see Vicki’s mother, though we learn she is a nurse, has a very open idea about sexuality. Oh, and she is a succubus as well. There is a little bit of “evil” in one of her comments, but that’s pushed aside by Vicki’s humanity that comes through in spite of what her emerging powers make happen. Really there’s very little said or told about Vicki’s mother and that’s a bit of a shame as I would have liked to know more about her, Vicki’s father and so on. It’s a bit of an open mystery, only teased at, and it would have been nice for that to develop further.

While there is story and plot, to an extent, the majority of the work focuses on Vicki encountering, and then suffering her way through some sexual situations which then eventually climax in her having a threesome with her boyfriend and a roommate. While she does get pushed to the edge, in more than one way, she doesn’t turn ‘evil’ but rather she’s more of a sex dream in a way. I liked that, and hearing her thoughts as things developed, how her new needs as a succubus became more and more pronounced was very hot. I thought the description of seeing a soul was quite unique, and more so what Vicki’s reaction was when she finally had but a taste of one.

The work closes with Vicki wondering what she can do with her powers next in the aftermath of being “charged up” but the work closed on that point, not going any further and leaving the rest to the reader’s imagination. As such, the work is very short and that’s a shame.

There’s several good ideas here, some interesting characters, and Vicki herself being the most interesting of all. The work clearly leads towards another book, but that never came to be. The work was removed from Amazon, the story lost, and it shouldn’t have been. There’s promise here, and it should have unfolded.

Three and a half out of five pitchforks.

A cute and fun little piece of succubus erotica. A little mind control, a little fun, and a story that sadly never continued onwards. It’s a shame because Vicki is really quite likeable, and to see what happens in the after, as she becomes more sure of herself and her powers, would have been very interesting to see.

A Review of World’s Shyest Succubus 1: Awakening by Taylor Knobb

World's Shyest Succubus 1: Awakening by Taylor Knobb

World’s Shyest Succubus 1: Awakening by Taylor Knobb

A review of the first work in a new series called Philos University by Taylor Knobb for which I find myself rather amused, bemused and taken by the main character and her innocence.

The theme of an innocent, or if you will, pure soul being transformed into a succubus isn’t uncommon. What is uncommon is keeping that soul true to themselves in spite of all that happens to them. It’s not an easy thing to do when the obvious route would be to make them sex crazed after all.

The world around you can be draped in shadows. A mystery simply because of how you were brought up into it. When temptation strikes, one can find themselves covered by it. The larger question then becomes how one learns their new world, and what they do with that knowledge.

  • Title: World’s Shyest Succubus 1: Awakening
  • Author: Taylor Knobb
  • Length: 17 Pages
  • ASIN: B01DJLFQ64
  • Publishing Date: March 27, 2016
  • This work at Amazon.com

It tells the story of:

Adina is a quiet, shy, and above all good girl. So one night when she’s heading home from a church service and is caught in what seems to be a blast of magical power that starts to change her, she doesn’t know what to do. The changes start immediately, with a new sort of hunger that threatens to turn her world on its head. She needs something that she’s never needed before, something that makes her turn hungry, lustful eyes upon her roommate Kelly…and something that might help Kelly turn those same desires on Adina!

Adina is, if nothing else, a good innocent girl. She’s shy and really doesn’t know much about the world outside of her cloistered community. Encountering something that she should have known better than to get involved with, Adina discovers her body is changing and her needs are becoming more… physical. Something’s happening and when her roommate comes a little too close, Adina discovers things she’s never experienced before.

The main focus in Adina trying to deal with a very slow transformation into what seems to be a succubus. The majority of the changes in this work are physical, not quite over the top, but certainly starting her on the path to becoming a succubus nonetheless. Mixed into that is a tentative creeping of a turning of her viewpoint from innocence about just about everything to a singular focus upon sex and sexuality, much of which is her own discoveries about the things that “bad girl” must like in her mind.

Adina is, to a point at the beginning, almost too close to a stereotypical good girl and there were points at which I winced at how clueless she was. In the context of her character it made sense, but even so the slightly overwrought moments of discovery made me wonder if she’d ever seen her own body all things considered. When her mental landscape begins to shift, and it is very nice in how subtle that is at first, it brought about quite a lot of character development. Adina doesn’t go from innocent to sex craving mindless being as has happens so often before. There’s still that innocence in her, a good soul that sees she’s doing something “wrong” and needs to make up for that.

It’s this focus in the story that grounds it and makes it more than an excuse for Adina to crawl into bed with her roommate. There are two scenes that focus on erotica, one is some self-pleasuring which was lovely and hot, the other is Adina and her roommate loosing themselves in Adina’s powers which has some succubus mind control mixed in with some heated erotica that was lovely and I liked both quite a lot.

The work is short, there’s a skimming over about how Adina it transformed, which I hope will get better explained, and there is a need for perhaps a bit less of Adina being singularly thinking about sex and her reactions over it, which happens almost every page in the latter part of the work.

The story is well told, I like Adina very much and because I do, there’s a worry about this series that I hope the author can avoid. I really wouldn’t like for Adina to be lose within the succubus when she fully appears. More so, I really don’t want her to turn stereotypical, and if she has hooves I will not be thrilled at all. The story has a purpose, a voice in Adina, that has to remain throughout otherwise this is just a means for writing her into constant sex scenes without meaning. That would be the real shame of all.

There are a few odd word choices for actions that Adina takes here and there which are a bit confusing, but that well may be just a choice the author made. Otherwise Adina is a captivating character, the story has purpose, plot and direction. The erotica is not over the top and when the little first hints of Adina becoming a succubus peek out, there’s a delicious duality in her inner thoughts, what she does, and how that all unfolds and the aftermath that Adina has to deal with.

A cute story about an innocent beginning to figure out that something isn’t quite right, but having no idea as to why. Really a unique take on this particular them which I enjoyed. However it is short, really needs to be fleshed out more and perhaps more time needs to be spent in Adina facing her changes a bit more rationally rather than being just completely out of touch with what is going on.

Four out of five pitchforks.

There’s quite a number of mysteries here to unravel, many of which I think will be interesting. There is however a danger of the work turning Adina into something she isn’t, a caricature of her innocent self. I really don’t want to see her lose who she is for the sake of an ongoing series in which she just goes from sex scene to sex scene and nothing more. I feel like that isn’t likely, but it is a trap that is far too easy to fall into. The next work in the series is titled “Playing Doctor” and that concerns me. I dearly hope I am wrong for the promise I see in Adina herself.

Drawing a cute anime Succubus YouTube

I found, for me, one of the more interesting from the perspective of an artist creating their artwork, YouTubes sometime ago. I like this video mainly because the process of creating is where the soul of art comes from…

And in case the video can’t be seen on the Tale, please try this link:


While the video is a little bit small, here is the completed art in case YouTube makes it vanish as happens from time to time…

Succubus Sketch by Aria Rayes

Succubus Sketch by Aria Rayes

The most important thing really about anime Succubi is that they are cute, have a little bit of sexy innocence, and, of course, that expression that seems to say they have no idea why the boys around them are having nose bleeds.

I do love this character very much, the cuteness is the best part and in being so cute that gives her a lot of personality. Lovely expression, I like the pose, and while her tail is a bit different, it does work for her quite well I think.

I wonder what her name could be…
