Vampires Are Sex Gods – TV Tropes

“There was something about them that made me uneasy, some longing and at the same time some deadly fear. I felt in my heart a wicked, burning desire that they would kiss me with those red lips.”Vampires tend to have a lot of sex appeal. It may be because Evil Is Sexy, but not all vampires are evil, so maybe it’s because they’re bad boys or sultry Femme Fatales. The bloodsucking may be a great fetish source, something about a quick sting of pain followed by pleasure. Or maybe they just figure hundreds of years of practice at love making makes them really, really good at it. Whatever the reason is, people find vampires arousing, and writers use that to please the fans, and sometimes themselves.This goes back pretty far, since vampirism has long been a metaphor for sexual activity, sexual predators, and/or sexual transmitted diseases in legends. The very term “vamp” is an evolution of this metaphor. Vampires’ need for blood makes them animalistic predators; therefore, their sexual needs are more basic and rougher, which can be a Fetish for some people, hence the expression “necking”. The other part of the Trope goes to the Victorian ideals of womanhood: pale, frail, and bloodless, which was the effect of tuberculosis, aka “consumption”, on women, which is part of where the vampire myth originated. Certainly, a lot of vampires have Raven Hair, Ivory Skin.The question of how vampires can be sexually active despite being clinically dead (in most settings), and what it says about the people attracted to them anyway, tends to be hand waved or played for squicky laughs. Other Undead (except possibly death knights, if theylike this sort of vampirefall into the pale, looks-almost-alive variety) such as Zombies usually tended not to get this treatment as they are almost always less human-looking and more obviously dead. However, this trend seems to be changing: other types of undead beings, like zombies and mummies, are nowadays increasingly being portrayed as humanlike and physically attractive. It’s rare in a Fur Against Fang scenario, or Vampire-Werewolf Love Triangle, for Werewolves to get the same treatment, as sipping from your vein is easier to make sexy than being mauled and eaten, but some go ahead anyway to portray that bestial power as alluring.Related to Kiss of the Vampire and Hemo Erotic. A subtrope of You Sexy Beast.
