I loved watching Bram Stoker’s Dracula. It was my first taste of the sex appeal of creatures of the dark.
Stoker’s Dracula wasn’t a monster, but a man pining for his lost love for centuries. Who can resist that level of dedication? Seriously, when was the last time you got more than 60 seconds of adoration from a guy?
When Buffy the Vampire Slayer hit the scene, I was ecstatic. Can we say Angel without drooling? Or the bad boy Spike?
These men lived for love, and there was so much more. They could kick the ass of anyone who dared harm their woman. (Of course, I fell in love with Buffy first, cause she didn’t need anyone to kick ass for her, she did just fine by herself).
Years ago as a teenager (I won’t share the numbers), my friends and I would talk about one day meeting someone tall, dark and handsome. Mysterious was better. Add fangs? I’m there baby.
Isn’t that exactly what vampires are?
Add in the excitement of danger, and the ability to live forever with the person you truly love. What more could a girl ask for?
So, my Q4U: What makes vampires sexy to you?
