A costume that’s shiny and cute is a good start

Red Metallic Sleeveless Devil 2 Piece Costume

I do like shiny costumes, I’ve said that many times before. There’s something about the sheen that I enjoy and this week’s costume has a lot of that to it. The thing is however, this is less a costume than the dress itself.

This is called the Red Metallic Sleeveless Devil 2 Piece Costume and it comes with the metallic dress, gloves and the horn headband. The collar, fishnets, boots and pitchfork are not included and it sells for $55 US.

I do like the dress quite a lot, the horns are lousy of course. The fishnets ruin the look of the dress and really shouldn’t be part of this.The thigh high boots are a really good match, even if the colour is a bit off.

There’s a reason why this particular costume is appearing today and that’s because it’s in my collection, I matched it with far better horns and some lovely boots for Valentine’s Day.

It did make an… impression.

Four out of five pitchforks.

A cute dress with a sexy look, that’s a rare thing really isn’t it?


A Review of What Comes at Night by NJ van Vugt

What Comes at Night by NJ van Vugt

What Comes at Night by NJ van Vugt

The ensnaring of a soul in succubus stories can be told poorly, being not much more than the erotica, or be something more complex and delightful in its exploration.

Sometimes it isn’t the game one expects and if there’s games within, that can make a story that much more interesting. A review then of a story of a unique succubus and the soul fighting against her.

The work tells of:

Hannah came ready to party for Halloween, but she didn’t expect to be so quickly hooked by an unrecognizable guy in a demon costume. There’s something about him that has her ready to take her clothes off on the dance floor. The mystery party-goer is just as ready to get dirty, but as things proceed, Hannah begins to think he may not be who or what she thought. Funny thing is, even as she realizes something is wrong about him, she’s unable to make herself stop.

Solomon is in all kinds of trouble and he needs to make some money. A misstep brings him into the presence of Olive who offers a deal he cannot refuse. But soon he discovers that there’s more to the deal and it might cost his soul.

The work tells an interesting story with an odd feitsh, a mysterious woman, and a main character that becomes trapped in ways he cannot fully understand. The exploration of the fetish is something quite special in itself, but the appearance of the succubus in the work brings the story deeper into the erotic heat and more so the temptations and seductions that the main character cannot avoid.

Olive, the succubus of the work, is very much a seductress at the start, but as things progress her true nature, and needs, become far more obvious. She isn’t a stereotypical succubus, though there are some aspects that fall into that category. It’s how she’s created her trap, how she draws and controls the souls around her that I think was told very well. Her deviousness and manipulations are told well and how they affect Solomon adds the measure of darkness her character suggests to the story.

The story being told from Solomon’s viewpoint works well, there’s a certain accent to his thoughts and the story’s dialogue that were unexpected, but fit well. At one point there’s a bit of a story disconnect that didn’t work and perhaps there’s a paragraph or two missing in that moment. Still, a very good story with complex main characters and good heat in the erotica that works well.

Four out of five pitchforks.

A really well told story of seduction, entrapment and need which leads into some really unique fetishes. I’d have liked more about Olive, about the club as well. There’s some world building that needs to be explored. The ending was a bit too expected, which was a shame all things considered. Perhaps a following work in which Solomon has to face Olive and her kind would be a thought to explore.


Distracting by TeraS

It’s not often that Valentine’s Day falls on a story day here on the Tale. However, this year it does, and I thought of a bemusing story to tell. Perhaps one of the more mischievous days on the calendar is one in which there’s a chance to be …

By TeraS

“Why are we here, Auntie?” The words were spoken by a young blue-tailed member of the Succubi whose hair was very strikingly close in colour to her mother’s ebon mane. She didn’t ask the question because she didn’t want to be there, however. After all, this was her favourite aunt, the one who, at least according to her mother, was a terribly positive influence on her.

“I think this is what mom calls a learning experience, Sis.”

This wasn’t the answer she’d been looking for, but her strawberry-blonde, blue-tailed sister couldn’t help herself. Her nose was buried in a pamphlet, her tail moving slowly behind her as they followed along together with their aunt, who seemed to be amused by something, in the lead. Her answer came with a teasing lilt: “Branwyn, Rianna, behave or we won’t go to the gift shop later.”

Flipping her blonde mane back into place after giving her nieces—and what an odd thing that was to wrap her silver tail around—a teasing look, Cassie continued to lead her charges through the exhibit. She found it quite interesting; she’d hoped that the two blue-tails might get some ideas. She certainly did, and couldn’t wait to ensnare Keith or Tera, or both of them, in one of the plans percolating in her thoughts.

Branwyn had stopped in front of a piece of sculpture, reading the notes about it on the little card placed nearby, as her sister bumped into her. Waving her own pamphlet at her younger sister she commented: “You learn anything yet?”

Rianna looked up, a mischievous glint in her eyes: “Maybe.”

The older-sister voice appeared: “You better not try anything.”

The younger sister hid the booklet behind her, her hips wiggling back and forth: “Me? I’m not planning anything.”

The wise, or at least more-wise-to-the-ways-of-scheming-and-plotting, aunt watched the exchange, hiding her delighted smile behind her hand. It was cute, she had to admit, seeing her nieces faux-arguing. They were playing around in their own way, and Cassie adored the two of them to no end.

She was about to chide them again when she felt something brush through her hair. Looking around in confusion, she couldn’t find a reason for the feeling, and she chalked it up to a vent or perhaps a breeze passing through the space where they stood.

Gathering herself. the elegant silver-tail, who prided herself on having taught her nieces the importance of fashion, asked as she waved her hand: “Alright, you two, what do you think about this?”

Branwyn turned away from her sister: “Well, it’s kind of obvious, isn’t it?”

Rianna shook her head: “You always see the obvious stuff.”

As the discussion continued, Cassie watched with interest, waiting for the right moment to add her thoughts to the conversation. A light caress along the length of her tail gave her pause to bite her lip and stifle a moan, turning about to see who was touching her gleaming silver appendage.

Her focus was brought back to Rianna, shaking her thoughts away from the interruption: “Right, Auntie?”

Shaking her tail out and sending another shiver through her body, the slightly discombobulated silver-tail answered in a husky voice: “Tell me more, Rianna.”

As her young niece returned to sparring with her sister, Cassie turned about, her silver dress swirling about her legs. The shimmering fabric—It was the dress wasn’t it?—making goosebumps form along her shapely legs, the heat making her shiver in desire.

The conversation between her nieces continued, but the aroused silver-tail found it very difficult to keep up with the conversation when someone, and she had a really good idea of who it was, kissed the nape of her neck. At the same moment, another someone traced fingertips over Cassie’s hip, drawing a path towards where her silver tail appeared.

She could feel the orgasm coming; she was right on the edge …

“Auntie? You okay?”

Just like that, the pleasure came to a plateau, her hair a wild mess similar to a certain Queen of the Realm’s favourite hairstyle. Out of the corner of her eye she caught a familiar tail disappearing around a corner. “I’ll be right back.”

The look that passed between Rianna and Branwyn as their aunt hurried off made it clear they knew what was going on.

The next room was painted red. Not the red that marked the Queen of the Realm, but rather a red that complimented the statue in the middle of the space. Cassie recognized the statue; it was very hard to miss art of Cupid, after all. There, waiting were the two evil—well, naughty, certainly—red-tails she loved.

Crossing her arms under her cleavage, Cassie turned her nose: “Humph.”

Her two lovers knew she was being coy as they approached. After all, this was Valentine’s Day in the Realm, and being naughty was all part of the fun.

Tera’s purr made Cassie bite her lip: “I think she’s upset being distracted.”

Keith’s chuckle brought her desires in a rush: “Oh? How can you tell she’s distracted?”

There was no escape, not that Cassie would want to. The Temptress found herself at the mercy of those she’d been tempting for years, and that delighted her. Cassie eyed them both with a naughty smile: “I’m not distracted. I’m horny.”

As the three lovers held each other close, two young blue-tails watched from nearby. Rianna sighed: “We’re not going to the gift shop, are we? I want a plushie pitchfork.”

Branwyn smiled and slipped her hand into Rianna’s own. She knew that Rianna wasn’t really miffed. If anything, she was hinting it might be a good idea for the two of them to disappear. As they walked away, the older of the two succubi sisters explained: “It’s okay, Sis, they’re distracted.”

A Review of Hannah’s Halloween Demon by Elle A. Wild

Hannah's Halloween Demon by Elle A. Wild

Hannah’s Halloween Demon by Elle A. Wild

There are some characters that just aren’t really that appealing. Perhaps it’s the voice that seems to come from their words that takes something away.

Attitude, even a bad one, sets a character’s tone and if they aren’t very appealing at the beginning of the story, how does the story keep your interest? Erotica alone isn’t really enough most of the time.

The work tells of:

Hannah came ready to party for Halloween, but she didn’t expect to be so quickly hooked by an unrecognizable guy in a demon costume. There’s something about him that has her ready to take her clothes off on the dance floor. The mystery party-goer is just as ready to get dirty, but as things proceed, Hannah begins to think he may not be who or what she thought. Funny thing is, even as she realizes something is wrong about him, she’s unable to make herself stop.

Hannah decides to attend a Halloween party and in the midst of people playing at being ghosts and goblins, one devil turns out to be more than she expected.

The work is a short erotic hot flash that tries to bring heat between the characters but overall seems to be missing much of that for how Hannah is presented and how the incubus, who is never named, dominates her. There really is not a lot in the way of seduction, the story moving from encounter to the two being entwined very quickly. Overall the erotica tends towards adult movie heat and considering both characters and what they wanted, it’s a bit disappointing.

The story being narrated from Hannah’s viewpoint gives an accent to the story, a personality that took something away from the heat. Her personality comes through very clearly, but at the same time it reads oddly, almost disconnected from what’s going on. That made the heat less for me, the story not as interesting as it could be as well.

The incubus of the work, who is never given a name, is self-assured, dominant and is very close to the edge of being stereotypical. He’s not quite evil, it’s more that he’s focused on sex above all else. Again, the makes the erotica read at times like an adult movie, and perhaps something more could have been done to build the heat, add more seduction and just give the story something more beyond the smouldering heat that appears.

Three out of five pitchforks.

Somehow I expected something more from this work, but overall it’s a hot and fun read. Hannah was interesting, if somewhat irritating, and the incubus was seductive, but turned a bit stereotypical by the end of the story. Giving him a name would have been nice, and perhaps drawing out the tease would have been more appealing too.


A cute Succubus WIP YouTube

A work in progress YouTube of some succubus art that I found recently this time on the Tale. It’s wonderful to discover art which has expressiveness and this does by far.

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

In case the video disappears, here’s a screenshot of this lovely artwork as always…

Pink Devil by Stb Audranaša

Pink Devil by Stb Audranaša

Lovely form, her colours work really well together. The pink of her hair is a nice contrast with the black outfit too. Her expression and her eyes are so very expressive. Interesting wings, I do wish she had a tail to go along with her horns. I especially love her gloves and the complexity of her outfit which go really well with her pose and body shape too.

A delightful work of succubus art by far…


A Review of The Student’s Nightmare by Orphanos

The Student's Nightmare by Orphanos

The Student’s Nightmare by Orphanos

Succubi and incubi are the things of dreams and when an author tells a story in which they are more than just the sex they create, that I find to be unique and interesting.

Perhaps the dreamscape being told means more than the characters at times, but even so, it can be captivating.

The work tells of:

Katie blinks. She’s in her college anthropology class, but something’s wrong – she’s wearing blue cotton panties, and absolutely nothing else. Is this a dream, or something even stranger? Things take a bizarre turn when the professor begins to lecture on the legend of the incubus, the sex demon who visits women in their nightmares…This erotic short story is sure to delight fans of exhibition, voyeurism, supernatural erotica, and group sex.

It looks like Katie is in class, but there’s something odd about it. Perhaps it’s the way her professor is speaking. Perhaps it’s the erotic entanglements around her. Or it might just be the incubus who has captured her and will have what he, and she, desires.

The work tells of an erotic dreamscape in which the main charcater, Katie, finds herself at the mercy of her professor’s direction and the incubus that appears there. The heat is really well done, Katie’s thoughts falling into the clutches of the incubus are a delight. The heat builds well over the course of the story and while this is described as being part of a series with horror in it, there’s really little of that to be found.

The incubus of the story, who is never named, isn’t quite stereotypical, but he focused on one thing, that being Katie. But it’s less the actual sex that matters as much as Katie’s falling to him, the class falling as well that I found the most enjoyment from. The hints of mind control along with the telling of what Katie sees and experiences takes what might have been adult movie levels of erotic heat and turns them into something far better.

Three and a half pitchforks out of five.

Lovely heat, the telling of the story is wonderfully done. I would have liked something more of a closure, as well giving the incubus a name would have been nice. It’s an interesting start to the series, perhaps Katie will return with her incubus or a succubus will appear. that could be so very telling a story.


Succubi Image of the Week 731

I find portraits of Succubi fascinating… There’s something about the expression, the pose and the impression of the succubus in the art that opens thought to what their story might be… A portrait then this week on the Tale that bemused me…

Demoness by paishiri

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

While her skin tones are rather unique, her red hair works really well in contrast, making it stand out. Interesting expression, there’s a bit of focused thought I think in it. Lovely eyes and her horns are quite interesting with her overall look.

A lovely succubus artwork with an interesting succubus that makes one wonder about her story and what that takes her…
