I have spoken about the attraction of monster fucking on a perhaps surprisingly large number of
convention panels, including DragonDon and World Fantasy. There is something terribly
appealing about a lover who could destroy you but chooses not to. This is what the whole
vampire mythos taps into for me. I see it as, in a sense, a metaphor for true love.
Vampires and media about vampires cycle in and out of fashion regularly, but the allure of the
monstrous wild sex partner is eternal.
