Throughout history and throughout the world, people have reported sexual contact with various supernatural creatures. Many people believe that “sex demons” were born out of the need to explain topics that are generally considered taboo. Usually, unintended pregnancy, miscarriage and promiscuity can cause anger and persecution.
According to the Hebrew Bible, the Nephilim were a race of giants who came about due to fallen angels having intercourse with human women. Translated from the Hebrew text, “Nephililim” means “fallen ones”. Genesis 6:4 tells us, “Now giants were upon the earth in those days. For after the sons of God went into the daughters of men, and they brought forth children, these are the mighty men of old, men of renown.”
The story of Nephilim originates with the story of Shemhazau, a high-ranking angel who led a group of angels to earth to teach humans to be righteous. Over the centuries, many of the angels pined for human women and eventually mated with them, creating the Nephilim. This unholy union is said to have instilled an inherent wickedness in the Nephilim, making them capable of terrible sin. God was so disgusted by their existence that he ordered the angel Gabriel to ignite a civil war among the Nephilim, which eventually led to their extinction.
