Why Are Vampires So Popular

Twilight New Moon

The belief in vampires has probably existed as long as people have walked this earth. Although the vampires of yesterday bare little resemblance to the popular ones of today, like for instance Edward Cullen from Twilight.

In fact the vampires of yesterday were evil and grotesque creatures that no young woman or anyone else for that matter would ever want to meet let alone marry.

Today's vampire on the other hand is a sometimes tortured, darkly brooding and very handsome young man. He also drives a sports car and unlike the rest of us,seems to be independently wealthy without ever actually having to work for a living.

But no matter what you think about vampires, the popularity of True Blood and Twilight as well as numerous romance novels ensures that they are here to stay.

Five Reasons Vampires Are Hot

1. The Forbidden:
What could be more thrilling than having a dangerous predator who desires you, a human and no other as his mate. Dark and dangerous men have always been attractive to women and lets face it, you can't get any more dangerous than a vampire.

2. Eternal Youth:
Everyone wants to stay young and beautiful forever. For that reason alone the life of a vampire can be very appealing. Many stories tell that just the process of turning into a vampire can leave a human more beautiful with perfect skin and perfect features.

3. Every Women Wants Him:
What's a bigger turn on than the fact that all he has to do is to walk into a room and every women in sight wants him. But he only has eyes for you.

4. His Strength:
Vampires are said to have an inhuman strength and speed. This along with the ability to turn into a wolf or simply a puff of smoke or mist pretty well makes them invincible.

5. The Total Package:
Most women would say that it's the total package and not any one thing that makes a vampire desirable. Unfortunately for most men it's just impossible to compete with this beautiful supernatural creature.

My wife watches vampire shows and movies and I have to say that I'm tired of them. At first, I liked the intensity of True Blood, but now i'm bored with it. The same thing over and over.

Good title. Personally, I don't understand the fascination.

Edward Cullen from Stephanie Meyer's Twilight Series is a popular character for two reasons. Firstly, he is the ultimate protector (even if it's his own existace that put her in danger.) Secondly, he must take all of the responsiblity upon himself. He must controll his physical lust and as well as his blood lust. It is his will and control that is continually being tested. Bella just whines and complains about getting what she wants. It's the ultimate female fantasy.
