A Review of The Incubus’s Impatiently Fertile Mate by J.B. Black

The Incubus's Impatiently Fertile Mate by J.B. Black

The Incubus’s Impatiently Fertile Mate by J.B. Black

Something of a different story about incubi for review this time on the Tale.

The mythos of incubi tells of course of their causing their mates, or partners, or those they encounter in a sexual way, to bear children. A different take in this work where the mate is male and what comes from that reality.

The work tells of:

Lance wanted children, and thinking he didn’t have a mate, he had no reason to wait to have them, but the witch’s potion gives him not one baby but FIVE! Swollen and round with no one to enjoy how hot he looks, Lance takes comfort in his collection of toys and his fist, but after the babies drop, he’ll need someone else to help get his contractions started.
Is the stranger in the club the perfect birth-inducing fling? Or the answer to why there are multiples in his belly in the first place?

Lance is a sorcerer with a dream of having children, but a spell has unexpected results and he finds himself bearing the children he wanted. The father unknown, an encounter brings him to realize that his mate is an incubus and all that entails.

It’s a story that’s more about male impregnation and birth than it is an incubus story and as such there’s not a lot that interested me in it. It’s written well, the characters have promise, but the story is missing depth and background to make it more than it is.

The incubus is somewhat single minded in their focus through the story and as such leaves something to be desired. He’s not stereotypically evil, does care about Lance and the children to be, but his nature seems to overcome much of that most of the time. As such he’s more concerned at times about the sex and a bit less about all else.

The erotica carries a male/male tone and it has some heat with it, but there’s points where the heat is lost for the oddity of the situation they are in. It could have been better with perhaps a bit less need and something more emotional between the characters that I think should have happened earlier than it does in the story.

Two and a half out of five pitchforks.

Certainly a different sort of incubus story, though I think more time developing the characters and a bit less in the erotica would have made a better read.


A YouTube of the evolution of the Succubus in Castlevania

Castlevania is well known for its characters, for me that character is, of course, the succubus. Over the different versions of the game she has changed in form and appearance, sometimes for the better, sometimes for the not so much so. A YouTube then today in which the different forms of the succubus in Castlevania is explored…

If you cannot see this video here on the Tale, please try this link.

I’m going to share a screenshot of the splash page for this video as well, mainly because it’s an interesting look at the succubus of the game.

The Evolution of Succubus in Castlevania Games - Bis & Beats

Overall I’m rather biased towards the original succubus of the series and how she looks. It’s more of a evil seductress look which I think works best with her form and personality. As she’s appeared over time, that’s been lost somewhat I think. She’s still evil, perhaps a bit more so than her original form, but there’s just something about that original look that says she’s pulling everyone’s strings in the game and that’s what interests me…

More the shame she never appeared in the television series too honestly…


A Review of Lilli the Succubus by Luna and Lucian S.

Lilli the Succubus by Luna and Lucian S.

Lilli the Succubus by Luna and Lucian S.

There are many very short works appearing about succubi, some a bare handful of pages and not more.

Still, there’s an idea in them, something to think about. But when the work is so dearly short, there’s a lot left unsaid.

The work tells of:

A story about a woman who turned into a energy sucking succubus through wanting to become a vampire.

Lilli isn’t good, there’s no question of the evil she is capable of. But not everything and everyone falls into her clutches and with that comes a ray of light for some.

The work is very short, barely a pamphlet in length and being so there’s no real development of the character or the telling of the story other than in a very summary form. Lili seems to act like a succubus, her actions as described are succubus-like, but that is the extent to things. Again, it is very short and it reads like a summary of a longer story or book.

Two out of five pitchforks.

It’s an outline of an idea overall and it offers a lot to think about. But at its core there’s so much missing in the storytelling which is a shame. Something to build on perhaps in the future.


Succubi Image of the Week 716

Succubi have a certain style much of the time, a look that tempts others but doesn’t quite reveal just how much power, or trouble, they are. A work of art for this week’s Succubi in which there is temptation but also a certain suggestion of something more…

Commission - Concord by Artdrift

Commission – Concord by Artdrift

This work is by the artist Artdrift on DeviantArt and you can find the original page with this art here.

Amazing expression, having her horns and tail colour match is a delightful touch. The contrast of her hair, which I think is perfect in the wildness, against her outfit and skin tones works perfectly. There’s a strength of character in this art, and I like how her overall look, her outfit is both simple and fits her so well, shows that she’s not a pushover, she’s someone to reckon with.

A quite dramatic work of succubus fantasy art and one that is a favourite…


There’s not a lot of heat in this costume

Heat It Up Sexy Devil Costume
It bothers me, probably more than it should, that costumes are shown with a lot of optional extras in order to make them more appealing. If that’s even possible with some of the costumes I have mulled over.

This is called the Heat It Up Sexy Devil Costume and it comes with the vinyl bodysuit this model is wearing and the rather unappealing set of horns. The shoes and stockings are not included and it sells for $80 US. Adding the shoes and stockings would push this to about $140 US.

It’s honestly really bland overall. It’s simply a red vinyl costume with a set of horns thrown in to make it something more than the vinyl alone was. But nonetheless there’s little here that’s sexy, even less that’s inspiring as well.

Removing the horns leaves you with really nothing and a look that could well be almost anything. There’s better than this to be found and if all else fails a good set of horns with the right dress is so much better than this is…

One pitchfork out of five and I’m being generous.


A Review of Submitting to a Succubus by Riley Paine

Submitting to a Succubus by Riley Paine

Submitting to a Succubus by Riley Paine

It’s interesting when there’s a bit of a crossover between the dream world and reality in stories. To encounter a succubus in dreams and then find them otherwise makes for some unique stories to tell. A review then of a work in which the main character gets a bit more than what they desire, and more of what they need.

A review then of the first work in a new series in which I have some hope and some thoughts.

The work tells of:

A mysterious message from his friend directs Matt to a book located in the depths of his local library. When he checks it out and discovers the chapter on succubi, he amuses himself by playing along and performing a ritual to summon one of the sexual she-demons.
She appears to him in a dream, binding him and draining him dry in return for his submission. But he doesn’t believe she is real until he meets her in the real world. Driven wild by lust and curiosity he follows her to her lair, a secluded hotel room adorned with bondage equipment.
The succubus derives her own pleasure from his arousal, and so she does everything she can to make him as horny as possible. She teases his with her hands and mouth and perfect, curvy body. She chains him upside down and makes him use her tongue while he leaks desperately. And only when she’s gained every drop of pleasure from his frustration does she at last let them share in a final, powerful climax.

Matt is led to discover a book which offers a means to summon a succubus. At first it seems a joke, but then his dreams cannot be forgotten and when the succubus herself finally appears, a choice needs to be made. Give in to her, or lose himself to her. Either way Lily will have what she desires from her new found toy.

The work is very much focused on female domination with some succubus aspects. It tends towards harsh domination for the most part which reflects Lily, the succubus of the work’s, personality. The erotica reads more like a series of hot flashes mixed with moments of introspection and consideration by Matt. It’s interesting how Lily appears, how she entwines herself into his thoughts and then leads Matt to falling to her control.

That part of the work is where the heat tends to remain overall. While there is some BDSM aspects as well, they feel a bit forced and didn’t have much appeal to me. That’s mainly because some of the binding Matt goes through just didn’t have heat for me. Setting that aside, there is heat, it simmers throughout and there are some scenes that I think worked really well.

Lily herself is not at all stereotypical and makes it clear she doesn’t kill through her encounters, but at the same time she’s very clear on what she wants and needs. It’s a slightly different take on the good succubus theme and it works well here to make her a force within the story and one that Matt is really not able to forget or ignore.

I like the overall story and Lily is delightful and unique as a succubus. I do think there’s a bit left unsaid that could have been expanded on however. Certainly Lily herself might have been a bit more seductive and dominant than she is. But that all leaves a path to a follow on story which would be nice to see.

Three and a half out of five pitchforks.

It’s something different both in telling of dominance and succubi. I’d have liked more heat, more seduction before the erotica came into play. Certainly a good read save for a few little things that bothered me along the way.

I’m going to hope that the series returns to Lily and Matt, perhaps to tell of her side of the story, or at least her side of reality. I think that would be interesting to see.


To Act Apart by TeraS

One step closer to the climax, or something, of Cassie’s story this week on the Tale. You can find the previous chapters here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, and here. The prior chapter is here. There comes a moment when you must set everything aside and realize that you can’t continue …

To Act Apart
By TeraS

The place setting was for two: long-stemmed wine glasses, though he’d never used his for wine; silverware and china from his family’s set–green patterns on bone china, rimmed with silver on the edge; a red tablecloth covered the so very old and cherished table that had been in his family for generations; chairs were set in their places just so. It was–for him, at least–the evening of Thanksgiving. Not all of the Realm celebrated the day; after all, there was a vastly more important date at the end of October that took the entire month to prepare for. For their Realm family, thanks would be given as part of the grand celebration to be. Tonight’s was meant for the Eternals.

Standing by the dining room cabinet, Keith thought about what had happened this year, the changes to come. Opening the dark wood stained door, he continued to reflect. Cassie knew everything now as did Tera long before. He remembered his red-tailed Eternal, telling him there was nothing wrong with sharing his love. He recalled the words of Simone, explaining that he didn’t need to fret over his love. He pondered the advice of their friend on the other side of the koi pond, noting that all he needed to do was trust in those he loved.

Looking over the table he realized that it felt wrong, there was place for a third, there had always been. Keith knew exactly who should be there: he had felt Cassie return to the Realm, knew his two loves were together somewhere.

He looked forward to seeing them again.

The third place setting wasn’t hard to sort out, there were more than enough pieces within the cabinet. They’d always used the same two wine glasses every year; finding the third wasn’t hard–it waited in the bottom of the cabinet, wrapped in paper. Setting the third wine glass, its silver rim glinting in the candle light, completed the setting.

As the red-tailed Eternal stood by the fireplace, he realized that It just looked… right. Still, he had to finish up dinner; the kitchen was calling to him to return. The cookbook held recipes of his mother’s which called out to him, the hand-written notes that told of things tried, what worked best, and what didn’t. He remembered the time spent learning from her, the joys in her creations and the opportunity to share them anew.

He was in the midst of mixing up the cherry–of course–topping to be added to the desert waiting in the fridge when the front door opened. He heard the familiar click of red heels on wooden floor. Then the click of silver heels came calling to his ears. It was but a moment of waiting in anticipation before there, framed in the archway from the hall to the kitchen, stood the two souls that held his own.

His first love and eternal love.

A passionate red-tail, a silver-tailed temptress.

He’d thought of many things to say when this moment came, but they all fell away from his thoughts leaving two simple words to be spoken on this evening of thanks given to those he loved. It was but a moment to cross to them, to take their hands in his own, and speak the words meant for them all …

“Welcome home.”
