In honor of Halloween almost being upon us, I must focus on the sexiest of all supernatural creatures: The vampire.
I won’t lie, I love vampires.
And not just the new ones, but the old school ones, too. People complain about the sparkly vampires and I see their point, but I like all the vampires – all the way back to the beginning with The Original himself: Dracula.
In spite of being a fairly Christian book, (yeah, I just said Christian. The heroes attribute their triumph over Dracula to the power of God), it’s a pretty kinky read. Seriously, see this quote from Chapter 21 where they catch the vampire in the act:
The moonlight was so bright that through the thick yellow blind the room was light enough to see. On the bed beside the window lay Jonathan Harker, his face flushed and breathing heavily as though in a stupor. Kneeling on the near edge of the bed facing outwards was the white-clad figure of his wife. By her side stood a tall, thin man, clad in black. His face was turned from us, but the instant we saw we all recognized the Count, in every way, even to the scar on his forehead. With his left hand he held both Mrs. Harker’s hands, keeping them away with her arms at full tension.
His right hand gripped her by the back of the neck, forcing her face down on his bosom. Her white nightdress was smeared with blood, and a thin stream trickled down the man’s bare chest which was shown by his torn-open dress. The attitude of the two had a terrible resemblance to a child forcing a kitten’s nose into a saucer of milk to compel it to drink.
As we burst into the room, the Count turned his face, and the hellish look that I had heard described seemed to leap into it. His eyes flamed red with devilish passion. The great nostrils of the white aquiline nose opened wide and quivered at the edge, and the white sharp teeth, behind the full lips of the blood dripping mouth, clamped together like those of a wild beast. With a wrench, which threw his victim back upon the bed as though hurled from a height, he turned and sprang at us.
Whew. I’m not turned on at all…..
Unfortunately, when we think of Dracula we usually see this guy (Bela Lugosi):
Or this guy, which is really way worse:
So I’d like to put it to you:
