Dracula and the Aura of Lust


Let your senses reel with one of our most erotic classics...

Originally written as a love story, this "horror"  took on a life of its own, giving the myth of the vampire more substance than it had ever experienced.  

Combining the allure of mythology, with the lust that only hid in the Victorian era, Stoker hit the proverbial nail on the head, spurring male readers to continue because of the fight scenes and pure sex...and the ladies the lustful encounters with the magnetic pull of Dracula.  Fantasies for the reader abound.

Within the first four chapters, Jonathan comes upon three sex-dripping beautiful vampires who seduce him, complete with the response from him that sends him into guilt regarding his disloyalty to Mina.  

Within the next few chapters, Lucy is raped by a beast-Dracula in the garden (invoking all manner of relatively common fantasy for us), complete with whorish imagery and open legs when Mina finds her.  Lucy acts the slut, gasping as the beast fills her on that hard garden bench.  Mina gets a right eyeful, herself strangely moved by the scene.  The whole fantasy is peppered with adult images and leg-weakening scenes.

Between chapters nine and twelve, we encounter a particularly vivid scene full of sexual imagery, of a vampire attack.  The medical double entendres could not have escaped the Victorian mind, itself full of hidden and fractured erotica, plunging to disturbing depths.

With the doctor's descriptions including things like talking of his blood "entering the women he loves" (transfusion) we see unplayed lust of deception when he decides not to tell her fiancée.  

"Next Morris provides blood for Lucy, again without telling Arthur. Now all the men who have proclaimed their love for Lucy have symbolically consummated that love."

Lucy becomes a spectacularly voluptuous and sexy creature, drawing Mina to her from past playful moments.  Women "companions were extremely common in the era and it's quite likely that Stoker meant to insinuate that Lucy and Mina were lovers, with a mutual affection and satisfying the lust they could not express otherwise.

In the story, Quincy and Arthur see Lucy's slutiness as the proof of her now-evil nature.  It doesn't seem to matter to them that she is quenching her hunger on a child.  (see, we told you that if you looked deeply enough, you could always find the edge...)

One theory of the death scene with Lucy, is the ultimate "fuck" if you will, as her fiancée Arthur, pounds a large stake into her body, watching then as it seems to climax, spurting blood from her mouth, and finally stills, becoming the Lucy he recognizes.

Stoker pushes the edginess with Dracula "taking" Mina while Jonathon slept on the same bed.  The imagery is unmistakable and this scene could very well produce a response if you let yourself sink into the description...

Abraham "Bram" Stoker (1847-1912)
Irish writer, best known for his vampire novel Dracula(1897).

Bram Stoker was born near Dublin on November 8, 1847, the third of seven children. An unidentified illness kept him virtually bedridden until age seven. Although he remained shy and bookish, in his adolescence Bram Stoker was anything but sickly. Perhaps to make amends for his earlier frailty, he was by this time developing into a fine athlete. At Trinity College, Dublin, he would conquer his shyness and be named University Athlete.

Young Bram had always dreamed of becoming a writer, but his father had safer plans. Yielding to the father's wishes, Bram followed him into a career as a civil servant in Dublin Castle. While climbing the civil service ladder, he wrote a dry tome entitled Duties of Clerks of Petty Sessions in Ireland. This book of rules, however, would not be published until 1879, by which time Stoker would be married, living in another country, and immersed in a new career.
