If ghosts aren't scary enough for you, prepare to learn about those who claimed to have had intimate relations with ghosts. Spectrophilia is the fetishization of and the attraction to ghosts or supernatural beings. But it's not only spectrophiles who claim to have had romantic encounters from beyond the grave. Although some fantasize about having a sexy spiritual encounter, most reports by people who claim to have experienced the phenomenon say they didn't initiate it.
According to scientists, the sensation of supernatural intimate pleasure typically occurs when individuals are falling into or out of sleep. Human brains are most vulnerable to hallucinations during those moments, which explains the intense sensations people often report. Some people who suffer from sleep paralysis have also reported intimate encounters with spirits. Since medieval times, there have been records of people who believe to have been sexually stimulated, or even assailed, by ghosts. Tales of the succubus and incubus warned of evil spirits that could invade bodies and force relations.
You don't hear a lot about sensual ghost encounters. It's definitely best reserved for a search deep into the darkest crevices of the Internet. But you really don't expect to hear about celebrities who have engaged in supernatural intercourse. Believe it or not, several celebrities have claimed to have had relations with ghosts - and they've shared dirty details you couldn't even get an Ouija board to recount. Stars like Ke$ha, Lucy Liu, and Anna Nicole Smith have all had unlikely encounters with a ghost that just couldn't keep its hands to itself. Here is a roundup of all the celebrities who have admitted to having wild intimate relations with ghosts, each with their own unique perspective and experience.
In October 2017, Smashing Pumpkins singer Billy Corgan stopped by the Howard Stern Show and claimed he once saw an apparition in the form of a shapeshifter. Corgan was vague with what he saw, but he was adamant that he "was totally sober" when he saw someone go through an unexplainable "transformation."
In June 2018, Corgan returned to the shock jock's radio show with his bandmates, and he elaborated slightly on his spooky encounter. "The story is even more fantastical than you think," Corgan said. He was coy when Stern pressed for more details and eventually let on that "the person was naked" when he saw them.
"I'll tell you in confidence," Corgan said. Stern then put the pieces together, guessing the ethereal entity was a woman who Corgan slept with. While Corgan refused to provide more details, he did not flat-out deny the supernatural hypothesis, either.

Ke$ha's intimate time with her local ghost was so good, she even wrote a song about it. For her most recent album Warrior, Kesha penned the song "Supernatural," which details her feelings regarding supernatural intimacy. And those feelings are very positive. Ke$ha admitted: "It's about experiences with the supernatural... but in a sexy way. I had a couple experiences with the supernatural. I don't know his name! He was a ghost."
Ke$ha, who says she's "very open to it," is clearly enjoying the ghost relations enough to sing about it. Highlights from the song include:
Baby when we're touching in the dark, can you feel it?
I can hear the pounding of my heart, can you feel it?
When you take my body to the stars, I believe it
Boy this love is supernatural, can you feel it?

The Skirvin Hotel in Oklahoma City is notorious for being haunted by a very cheeky, sexually experimental ghost named Effie. She's been known to get in the shower with male guests, proposition men in the hall, and stroll the hotel naked looking for a good time. The go-to spot for visiting NBA teams, the hotel has a reputation for keeping players up with things that go hump in the night. Some ballers go so far as to pay for rooms at other hotels, rather than deal with Effie and the other randy specters of the Skirvin.
Metta World Peace, the artist formerly known as Ron Artest, lived up to the moniker "baller" when he got intimately familiar with Effie over Halloween weekend 2016. The Lakers were in town, and Effie took what she wanted. "The ghosts were all over me. I just accepted it," Metta said. "They touched me all over the place. I'm taking one of the ghosts to court for touching me in the wrong places."

Lucy Liu was into ghost intimacy before it was cool. The Charlie's Angels actress shared with Us Weekly, all the way back in 1999, her personal supernatural sexy time stories. According to Liu, she settled down for a nap on the couch when an unknown presence laid on top of her.
She told the magazine: "It was sheer bliss. I felt everything. I climaxed. And then he floated away."
