It’s no secret that the world of entertainment has been taken over by our favorite blood sucking creatures of the night. But you really know a fad is popular when the hotties over at Playboy join in on sexy fun, and man is it sexy.
Just in time for the Halloween season, Playboy recently released their October issue of the magazine and on the cover, a bounty of vampire-y goodness. With the steaming hot sex scenes in True Blood to the rated PG, yet still passionate kisses in Twilight, there is no doubt we find vampires sexy. This edition of the magazine seeks to explain this phenomenon with a history of vampire lore accompanied by a seductive, erotic eight-page pictorial. Naked vamps = pure win!
“Love Bites” takes a historic look into the sexualization of the vampire, starting out with Bela Lugosi’s classic portrayal of Dracula in the 1931 film. Now while that is all well and good you know it’s those 8 pages of pure undead sexiness that will be drawing people in, showing us just how sexy vampires can be, and who better to show us than Playboy.
The voluptuous and beautiful pictorial, featuring Playboy Poland Playmate of the Year Kasia Danysz and Weronika Zurkowska, was first shot by photographer Szymon Brodziak for the March 2009 issue of Playboy Poland. While Klinger offers numerous historic and social explanations for audiences’ fascination with vampiric love, Brodziak’s photos prove that no matter what it is that attracts us, vampires have never looked so good.
If the article section of the magazine has sparked your curiosity and you are interested in why we find vampires so sexy, there are quite a few books and documentaries on the subject. Yup, believe it or not vampires are so popular and so loved that there are entire books on their sexiness alone. Pick up Allure of the Vampire: Our Sexual Attraction to the Undead by Corvis Nocturnum if you are interested in that aspect of vampires. Or if you just want to read some sexy, and I mean sexy, vampire stories, pick up anything edited by Cecilia Tan. She has a deliciously large collection of erotic vampire anthologies (shapeshifter ones too for the werewolf fans), full of story after story of vampire sex that is so hot you wont be able to read enough of them and so dirty that even True Blood’s scenes will seem mild.
