In most, if not all, folklore Succubi and Incubi are actually one and the same.
So they technically cannot be considered Gay as they can be males and females.
Do not attempt to reopen another thread like this please.

I think it is highly form of discrimination to no make a homosextual incubus. My sources say that originally, incubus' were meant to be bisextual. Aurthors went to great protortions and later transfixed incubus into changing form between male and female (succubus). This idea is not new to society. It has been around for decades. Hell, centuries! So the idea of a strictly heterosextual male incubus is kind of going against the traditional protrayal of an incubus.
Indeed ^ ^ Homosexuality has been around sincce the dawn of mankind, but its (yet incomplete) acceptation is only very recent. Sucubi/Incubi go back to the european Dark Age, and at the time being into the same gender was basically punished by death (extreme religion-based discrimination), so homosexual fantastic figures were highly improbable.
That's a biased statement, isn't it ? Not that I don't agree ^ ^ Males were in full control of society at the time, so I can easily picture sexually unsatisfied guys compensating with fantasies involving demon-like chicks getting into some hot lesbian action ^ ^
The same happened with mermaids, after all. Why do you think they were all females ? ;)
This discussion is going nowhere. Listen, this page was created to treat incubi as if they were a separate variation of a sex demon, not a gender changing or homosexual based sex demon. A singular type of sex demon that pines after females only. I swear, the discussions people bring to this site.
First of all, the demonic figure of succubus and Incubus were indeed both displayed as what nowdays we call "bisexual". In answer to DYBAD on why is that more than a posible thing, an actual fact: The demonic figures were displayed as the core of all decay in human morals, of course the demons were going to poke into all tabues, including of course same sex intercourse.
Going back to the main topic. It's inaccurate to display any of this two demon forms in a way different than 'swinging for both teams', the only objective behind the actions of the demons was; to corrupt the minds of its victims and drain their lifeforce. So, they would be looking for physicaly strong people, but weak minded. And, just like animals, they would be looking for a opposite sex victim to impregnate or get impregnate. Simple as that.
I also never thought I was going to see this discussion, because it's absurd to think that demons would refrain, in any way. (But there's people like you guys, who get intimidated by tabues and persist in acting like complete morons (Looking at you, DYBAD) and give the stupidest replies you can, as "So, you gay, right? Or a girl into boys love" to someone who wanted to see clear facts on a fantasy topic.)
Yeah, indefinite pronouns and irregular verbs were never an ESL's strength. I'm still having trouble learning other languages because I have to make myself a lot more flexible or even unlearn concepts of my native tongue in the process.
That's true, GrimmStory, LGBTIP Community's history is very sad, I mean: The inquisition, Stalin, Islam, the nazis; and these years are mostly accepted, but not very much. I know some they, in the whole world, we can get married, adoppt children or insaminate, live just like heterosexual people...I think religion is the big problem.
