One woman isn't even 100 per cent sure if her ghost lover is male or female — but she isn't fussed
ALTHOUGH currently dating a living man, Sian, 26, claims to have had passionate sex with a ghost from the 19th century.
The copywriter, who lives in London, says: "After splitting from my long-term boyfriend three years ago I rented a 16th century cottage in Aberystwyth, in west Wales. I was immediately taken by the painting of a handsome man above the mantelpiece, which dated back to 1820.
"A few months after I’d moved in, I woke one morning to find a dark-haired, very good-looking young man lying next to me. He was fully clothed – in a loose, white shirt, a neck scarf and old-fashioned breeches.
"He had a kind of shimmer to him as if he was behind a fluttering voile curtain. I told myself I was dreaming and rolled away from him. As I faced the wall, I slowly realised I wasn’t asleep and, suddenly, I was frozen with fear.
"I felt a hand on my waist but the touch was strange – light and cool. I looked at the man again and realised he was the one from the painting. We ended up making love for an hour. He was very gentle.
"Even when he moved on top of me, pressing down, he felt almost weightless. It was very strange, but the sex was amazing.
"We made love three times before he vanished forever. I sobbed when he left. I guess I had fallen in love.
"When I told a couple of close friends about it they looked at me as if I was mad.
"So I just laughed it off, said something about eating too much cheese, then kept quiet after."
From there, the floodgates opened. There seem to be a lot of British women who experienced sensual ghost run-ins. Lucy Liu is in there, too. But one of the more recent examples was when Ke$ha reported to Ryan Seacrest in 2012 that she went the whole way with a ghost. The common denominator in all of these stories is that the intimacy was great:To paraphrase prolific hip hop trio TLC, "Don't go chasin' poltergeists." In the mean time, keep an eye out for incubi and succubi and perhaps invest in a good citronella candle as well
there are some good incubus and succubus discussons in the annals of Deamon's Den. That is what the grouwas originally called.
