This all sounds a bit crazy, but a woman called Amethyst Realm (we expect that’s not her real name) decided to give up dating men to ‘have sex with ghosts’ instead!
She says she is in a ‘pretty serious’ relationship with a ghost right now and even hopes to have a ghost baby with her ethereal lover!
The 30-year-old spiritual guidance counsellor claims to have had 20 different sexual encounters with ghosts and has been dating a ghost she met in Australia for the past 6 months! She expained:
“One day, I was walking through the bush, enjoying nature, I suddenly felt this incredible energy. I knew a new lover had arrived. It’s pretty serious, in fact we have been thinking about having a ghost baby. I know that sounds crazy but I’ve been looking into it and I don’t think it’s totally out of the question.”
She now hopes to take things further by having a ‘ghost baby’ although she noted that making it happen could be tricky as:
“I just haven’t worked it out yet.”
Her first sexual encounter with a ghost happened around ten years ago, when she was engaged to a man. However, there are those who doubt her story, including professor of psychology, Christopher French, who blames sleep paralysis for Amethyst’s apparent ghostly encounters:
“Sleep paralysis is common — 20 to 40 per cent of people say they’ve experienced it — and is the state between sleep and wakefulness when you realise you can’t move. In a smaller percentage of the population, you get associated symptoms that can be very scary. One that’s commonly reported is a sense of a presence — something or someone in the room with you.”
“You can also get hallucinations where you see dark shadows or monstrous figures, you can get auditory hallucinations — you hear voices, footsteps — and also tactile hallucinations. You can feel as if you’re being held, you might feel as if someone is breathing on the back of your neck, you can feel as if you’re being dragged out of the bed.”
