** Lovecraft's stories contain virtually no hanky-panky. His narrators are universally chaste. Female characters are almost consistently abominations in disguise. On the very rare occasions that sexual activity is implied, it is depicted negatively and guaranteed to result in inhuman hybrid demon spawn. The only even semi-notable exception is the unnamed mother of Charles Dexter Ward, who, while remaining a side character, deeply loves her son and falls ill out of concern for him; when her husband discovers what their son is really up to, he does everything he can to keep her from knowing just how awful things really are out of fear that he'd lose her forever, either mentally or altogether, from the shock.
** There's the poor Lavinia Whateley in ''Literature/TheDunwichHorror'', [[spoiler: who goes over her head under the coaxing of her grandfather, and meets a grisly ending later on because she's not happy with the idea of destroying humanity]]. Most of the time women aren't so much evil as completely absent from Lovecraft's stories, since he had no idea how to write female characters. [[spoiler:Even Asenath Waite was actually the spirit of a man inhabiting the body of his daughter.]]
