Love After Death: Famous True Tales of Necrophilia

Published by bizarrestrangeinfo in Offbeat

True cases of famous persons and notorious cases of necrophilia from 37 B.C. to the present day. Surprising facts about those who have sex with the dead.

Cases of having intimate relations with corpses have gone back to before biblical times but one of the first and oldest documented cased of necrophilia was during the reign of King Herod.  Herod had to conquer his own kingdom before many would accept him as their leader and he did so, with the help of the Romans in 37 B.C. Herod was notorious for his wild parties and was also known to kill anyone that may have been a threat to him but there was one murder he committed not for personal gain but out of jealousy.

He married a Hasmonean princess and granddaughter of the high priest Hyrcanus II, Mariamne.  In  a fit of jealousy Herod had his wife, Marianne killed however, continued to have sex with her for seven years after she was murdered. 

Another famous case of necrophilia is that of Sir John Price.  After the death of his first wife, he soon remarried.  His deceased wife was embalmed and kept in the same bed as he and his new bride.  After his second wife passed, he also had her embalmed and added her to his dead bed-mate collection, sleeping next to her dead body in addition to the one of his first wife.  This time, his third wife would not tolerate the two other women in their marriage bed, especially decomposing ones.  It is said that he continued this behavior until his own death.

Marquis De Sade, famous for his sadistic, (the term sadistic was created after the Marquis de Sade himself) deplorable, fantasy stories mixing sex, torture, pain and death.  He often referred to necrophilia in his books.  In some of his books, he spoke of carving new orifices in the dead bodies to create a wound in which to penetrate for sexual pleasure.  He also mentioned carving out tongues and teeth to make oral sex, more pleasurable.  Most necrophiliacs do not kill their deceased sexual partners, merely dig them up or take the bodies of their loved ones post-mortem.  More often, there have been cases of men being arrested for raping the dead.  A man named Henri Blot was arrested for raping a number of exhumed corpses.  One man was a gravedigger who explained that he couldn’t get a living woman to be with him sexually so he felt it was not hurting anyone by enjoying himself with the corpses as a substitute.

    “Jeffrey often poisoned or drilled a hole in the heads of his victims in order to have sex with them post-mortem”

    Incorrect. He was attempting to create sexual automatons referred to as “zombies” in a permanent vegetative state by inducing brain damage but his attempts kept killing his victims.

    Indeed he kept a stolen male mannequin in his closet presumably for related reasons.

    From the wiki: “Dahmer got the idea that he could create “zombies” of his victims, and attempted to do so by drilling holes into their skulls and injecting hydrochloric acid or boiling water into the frontal lobe area of their brains with a large syringe.”
