I’m a fan of the paranormal genre and I love me a good vampire, but even I have to admit that the total saturation of the publishing, film – hell, let’s face it, just about everything – market gets a leeetle too much even for someone like me.
Anyhoo, this isn’t going to be a rant about ka-ching bandwagons. *Been there, done that yesterday.* Instead, this is going to be a serious analysis of some of the tropes of the vampire genre.
Bwahahahahahaha! As if! This is me we’re talking about after all. *wipes tear from eye*
Nup, this post is all about my vampire ponderings (ie the shit I come up with when I’m trying to avoid work).
Vampire Pondering #1.
A common theme in the genre is that when you become a vampire your reproductive bits dry up, right? If that’s the case, riddle me this virtual folk…
How do the boys still get to cum then??
I mean I get why the girl stuff just shuts down entirely cos, hello, menstruation would seriously bring on blood lust in any self-respecting vampire. But it seems a bit inconsistent, don’t you think?
Putting aside the fact that no woman in her right mind would want to get her period for the rest of her immortal life, your thoughts on this important issue are, as always, appreciated.
