  1. Ironically, people have historically paId good money to see a goo goo muck with blood spattered on her tits….so much so that it is an actual trope in the fantasy/horror genre.

    Vampires are a multi-billion dollar industry. There are even emoticons for them here in this app.

    🧛‍♂️ see?

    So, some may think vampires suck (it was inevitable) but that doesn’t mean they don’t exist. And when fictional creatures persist for centuries…it’s for a reason.

  2. Pretty classic (and ambivalent) depiction of the devouring, intimidating yet alluring female. Politically-incorrect and outdated, but it persists. See Sirens, see Calypso, see… Rather than being harsh on the depiction (you’re just the messenger, right?) better look with ourselves male/female/etc. alike and ask the question why?

    Too much thought?
