    incubus

    People complain about eminem being mysogonystic, but I'venever heard anyone complain about incubus. This seems strange to me, as an incubus is a spirit that rapes women. Do people not know this, or do they just not care? And why would a band call themselves that?

    I was aware of the name, but does it matter? They're a great band.

    Technically its not a spirit its a demon. The myth goes that they have sexual intercourse with women in their sleep. ... Damn fine band,

    So... women have sex in their dreams? What's the problem in that?

    Who cares about the name? Is anybody really affected by the name? No, they're not. So stop bringig up irrelevant pieces of information. Incubis does not have vulgar lyrics and should not be compared to Eninem in that manner. Not that I have a problem with Eminem, even though, I don't particularly care for his music (I don't like rap/hip hop/pop etc..).

    The problem would lie in the growing of the requisite wings and rather enlarged, er... member. Ever seen a artists rendition of these things drawn from mythological tales? The thing couldn't have intercourse with the rear end of a friggin cement truck.

    Sucubuses, (sucubii?), sound more interesting, where can I find one of those?
