Archangel Raphael is a merciful healer, sent by God to comfort the sick and the sorrowing. From the Holy Scripture we know that Archangel Raphael expelled demons from a woman. And how many people there are nowadays who are possessed by demons…. Alas, both they and their relatives often turn for help to sorcerers who nowadays hide behind the pseudo-scientific name of “extrasensorics.” But will sorcerers, these servants of the devil, expel demons? Obviously not. The power to expel demons and heal those who are possessed by them belongs to the holy angels and particularly to Archangel Raphael. Let us ask him to intercede for us before the Lord, Giver of all good things.
Maybe I can be of some help. I would gladly take this attractive, 7 foot-tall, testicle-touching woman off your hands for you. Tell her I'm very interested in having a relationship with her and that you don't have the time to dedicate to the type of romance that she truly deserves.
I figure the best part about this woman is that I can cheat on my girlfriend with her and never have to worry about her walking in on us! Not to mention the fact that I can now stop bugging her about having a threesome... I can just have one without her even realizing it!

Damnation and desire
The legendary Succubus feeds on men's lust
Do you find yourself constantly aroused? Do you need to make more space in your apartment to accommodate the latest and greatest additions to your ever-growing porn collection? Do you have a masturbation habit that could rival Pee Wee Herman's? Well my friend, while you may think you've just got a case of the average joe's libido, you may actually under the influence of a demon known as the Succubus.
Legends of Succubi vary far and wide. It is said they sprang from their male demon counterpart, Incubus, a fallen angel driven completely by insatiable lust. Once booted from heaven, the Incubus preyed upon women and filled them with intense sexual desire that only he could fulfill through their dreams.
Some lore describes the form of the Succubus as spirits that enter the world through the dream realm. Other myths take this idea further, claiming that the Succubus or Incubus assumes the shape of a familiar or loved one by reanimating a human corpse or creating human flesh, then twisting its shape.
Succubi can appear as any person they choose to, whether it be a lover, a wife, or the hottie on the cover of the latest issue of Juggs. One particular Incubus case dates back to a medieval bishop by the name of Sylvanus, who fought accusations of sexual assault on a nun by claiming an Incubus had assumed his form and did the deed. Sadly, the nuns bought it. But he does get points for originality.
So now you're probably wondering how to tell whether you need an exorcism or just a cold shower. Here's the deal - if you happily accept a Succubus or Incubus into your bed, everyone else in the house falls into a deep sleep, presumably so as not to come to your "rescue." Also, if the lover in your dreams offers up some less than desirable features, such as bestowing painful sex, being freezing cold, made of metal, or potentially even "double-pronged," you may need to call in a priest. Of course, the bad news there is that Incubi and Succubi don't seem to have any fear of exorcism or prayer, and thus, are really hard to get rid of. Funny coincidence, that.
So who wouldn't want their own personal Succubus or Incubus to grace their beds in the wee hours? All in all, hot, no-strings-attached gratification doesn't sound like such a bad deal. But here's the catch: the goal of a Succubus or Incubus is to seduce humans and lead them to eternal damnation. Those plagued by the Succubi don't wake up in the morning to tell the tale.

Ludovico Sinistrari, a 17th century Franciscan friar, author of 'Demoniality', wrote:
"Incubi do not obey the exorcists, have no dread of exorcisms, show no reverence for holy things, at the approach of which they are not in the least overawed ... Sometimes they even laugh at exorcisms, strike at the exorcists themselves, and rend the sacred vestments."
Nightmares have been shrouded in fear and mystery for centuries. The first English description of a nightmare
appeared in 1763: "The nightmare generally seizes people sleeping on their backs, and often begins with frightful dreams, which are soon succeeded by a difficult respiration, a violent oppression on the breast, and a total privation of voluntary motion. In this agony they sigh, groan, utter indistinct sounds, and remain in the jaws of death, till, by the utmost efforts of this nature, or some external assistance, they escape out of that dreadful torpid state. As soon as they shake off that vast oppression, and are able to move the body, they are affected by strong palpitation, great anxiety, languor, and uneasiness; which symptoms gradually abate, and are succeeded by the pleasing reflection of having escaped such imminent danger."
Historically, nightmares have three characteristics:
1. An indescribable fear
2. A feeling of a heavy weight on the chest
3. A feeling of helplessness
