The Oily Man Orang Minyak

Where does the Malaysian creature known as the Orang Minyak

originate? With no definitive answer to hand, Malaysians have to rely
on their own opinions or beliefs. Of course each opinion can differ from
the next one sometimes wildly.

The two major causes that most Malaysians seem to settle for are that
the Orang Minyak (or Oily man as it has come to be known) is a product of an over inflated
frustration from sex starved young men that actually turn to dark magic to win over that special
someone, or perhaps the one that got away. Others infer that this local legend is derided from
folklore and myth that is at the beck and call of a malevolent shaman or witch-doctor. Wherever
this creature comes from or whoever summons it, the price for doing so is said to be a frightening
one indeed. The Orang Minyak must locate and rape 3 virgins per day on average over the course
of a 7 day period. It is quite possible that both options are accurate. Humans have long been
fascinated by supernatural beings or entities and have entertained the possibility of not just
worshiping them, but taking control of them. A dangerous thing to attempt in the wrong hands
or even the right hands.

The Orang Minyak is considered to be a monster but reports of its appearance vary as much as a
description of any man. The height and weight has been described with a wide ranging scope from
skinny to obese; from tall to diminutive. Eye color can alternate between yellow, gold, red or jet
black. Every description given does share one bizarre attribute. The body of this thing is
completely covered in a dark and slippery oil. The oil that is said to cake the whole skin comes
from within the skin itself. It doesnt drip so will not form footprints to follow or fingerprints to

Whatever description reported, the behavior of this creature can be classed as lustful. Its single
motivation is just to satisfy its seemingly enormous libido and any female virgin that happens to
cross its path runs the very real risk of rape. According to some reports, the behavior of the Orang
Minyak borders on desires beyond simply lust. At times it seems as though it is seeking some kind
of satisfaction or gratification for its actions. This may be due to part of the legend of the
creature. Those that insist that is a freshly altered mortal believe that it does what it does merely to
complete clauses in a contract. Even if this accurate, the Orang Minyak maintains its predatory
nature for virgins. This behavior becomes so ingrained within its subconscious that it turns into
an addiction. The Orang Minyak has neither the desire or willpower to stop what it does.

As frightening as this must all sound, there is a defense against it. During the hours of daylight, it
may be spotted and the lascivious natures it holds so dear can be countered. During nocturnal
hours however, the shackles are off and with no restraints in place, the creature is free to prowl for
any number of potential victims. The victim of this assault would understandably be terrified by
the appearance and actions of the creature, but that is nothing in comparison to the Orang Minyak
itself if it discovered and caught red-handed. It will try to escape the scene, and thanks to its
unique armor, a lot of the time it will. Some enterprising women have used this as a first line of
defense against a possible attack. While sleeping overnight, a pile of unwashed male clothing
might be left close to the bed and make an effective barrier. Some women even go one stage
further and actually wear male clothing during sleep.

Those defensive measures are mainly utilized by those who subscribe to the more humanized
cause to this legend. Those that insist that this creature is a supernatural being have come up with
a possible solution of their own. Hiring a Malay spirit medium known locally as a Bomoh may
be enough to prevent an attack from taking place. Another solution discovered is to bite ones own
left thumb and cover it in a cloth or fabric that has previously been magically treated. This is
called a Batik and is only supposed to work while an assault is taking place.

Evidence of these supernatural origins may come from claims about some of the things that this
creature is capable of doing. Reports suggest that, at certain times, Orang Minyak has the ability to
induce paralysis on a psychic level similar to a Succubus or Incubus. Perhaps as an extension of
this skill is the will to render the victims voice muted for the duration of the assault. Finally, in
what could be viewed as the most sinister and disturbing of these talents is that Orang Minyak can
only ever be seen by a virgin.

Such a frightening entity if you believe such accounts.
