What’s sort of fascinating about the article is how seamlessly it adopts the rhetorical tropes of the trauma and recovery genre:
For nearly two decades, Contessa Adams felt as though she had no power against the demonic violators of her body. She felt trapped in secrecy and shame and knew that the demons tormenting her wanted things to stay that way.
But God had another agenda for Adams when she found Christ in 1979. The former stripper has a ministry through which she exposes one of Satan’s darkest secrets — sexual demons.
Replace the stuff about demons and Jebus with secular counterparts, and you’ve got a couple of paragraphs that would be at home in any magazine of the last 30 years — just change “ministry” to “support group.”
Of course, this topic does involve some special challenges, such as the trivial detail that incorporeal sexual predators do not actually exist, so the writer kind of has to take normal human sexuality and turn it into something horrific. Fortunately for the author, that is pretty much a wingnut’s default setting when it comes to normal human sexuality:
These spiritual rapists, as Adams describes them in her book, Consequences, often prey on people by performing sexual acts through nightmares and erotic dreams. Some people become so dependent upon these demonic experiences that they actually look forward to them.
“Anybody that has been attacked by them will tell you … they’re worried [that] they could not find that pleasure with mortal people,” says Adams, who claims she was once possessed by sexual demons.
We are told, in complete seriousness, that the main types of “identifiable sexual demons” are the incubus (male) and the succubus (female), and that while these absolutely real monsters primarily plague opposite-sex human victims, some “also lure people into homosexual behavior.” Indeed, even Contessa Adams admits that “the succubus spirit that used to attack her confused her so much that she contemplated becoming a lesbian.”
Happily, you can probably save yourself from these awful sex demons through a combination of tidying up and — whee!— submission:
