* ''Film/SistersOfSin'', Terri is sleeping in her husband's arms when the vampire comes through the window. She sees him enter and immediately goes to him and disrobes; they kiss as he leads her back to the bed before biting her throat. Her moans of pleasure awaken her husband but the vampire breaks his neck with one hand, before resuming feeding on her blood. A rescue party starts pounding on the door calling for her husband to open up, when they break the door down it's too late to save her and the vampire is gone.
* In ''Film/DraculaReborn'', Melanie is doing a strip-tease when the vampire enters the room through the balcony. He dispatches her boyfriend quickly enough while her back is turned, but the movie reserves the {{Gorn}} for the women's deaths. She's grabbed and bitten from behind before being thrown onto the bed. He slowly drains her blood while she kicks and screams, occasionally letting her go and demanding an explanation for her actions. Eventually he laments that she's not "enjoying his pleasure", finally throwing her head to the side, biting into the other side of her throat, and slowly drinking her to death.
* ''Film/CountDraculasGreatLove'':
** Marlene is in bed and reading the book about Dracula that she and Irme discovered earlier. She falls asleep and has a color-inverted dream of the prophecy of Dracula's ultimate victory--Dracula entering the bedroom of a true virgin who gives her blood willingly out of love and granting him his full power.
** Irme and Marlene are having an affair while they're stranded in Dr. Marlow's sanitarium, and he sneaks into her bedroom the first night. Unfortunately the next night sees him turned into a vampire en route to her room. She's delighted when he enters and frightened when he steps into the light and reveals his HellishPupils and fangs; but ultimately she's enthralled and doesn't resist as he bites into her neck, eventually writhing in ecstasy when he releases her throat and leaves a bloody trail of kisses down her body.
** Irme comes for Karen while she sleeps, but she awakens and screams at the sight of him. Dr. Marlow is across the hall with Senta and comes running to help, bursting into the room as Irme grapples with Karen trying to reach her throat. He overcomes Irme and throws him out the window where he is impaled on a WoodenStake.

There are several ways to fall prey to a vampire. Walking around alone at night is just asking for it. [[VampiresOwnNightClubs Picking up strangers at noisy clubs is the hip modern way]]. Then there is the traditional method: vampires are fond of using EnterStageWindow to get in the victim's bedroom. They might open the window, break it, turn into a mist to seep past, or even [[OffscreenTeleportation just seemingly teleport in]]. Then it's straight for the bed, leaning over the sleeper, and chomping down on the neck.

* The ''{{VisualNovel/Tsukihime}}'' anime inverts the trope. Shiki goes to his sister's bedroom unannounced and catches Akiha sucking Kohaku's blood: the maid effectively being her mistress' breakfast in bed.

* ''Comicbook/BatmanVampire'': A variation occurs in "Red Rain". Tanya repeatedly visits Bruce in his sleep and bites him to infect him with vampirism, without actually drinking his blood. As a result, Batman gains vampire powers while still remaining essentially human, giving him the strength to fight Dracula.

* The original ''{{Literature/Dracula}}'' would be the TropeCodifier with a helping hand from PopCulturalOsmosis. Dracula never technically enters Lucy's bedroom. On the first occasion, he hypnotizes her to leave the house and go down to the park. Thereafter, he goes to her bedroom window as a bat and she climbs partway out of it to be drained. When vamping [[spoiler: Mina]], he was able to enter because an inmate of the asylum she was sleeping in gave him leave.

** ''Film/TheBridesOfDracula'', Baron Meinster does this when Gina is by herself after Marianne leaves the room, coming in silently through an open window while she's look at a mirror. By the time she turns to him, he quickly mesmerizes her before going to feed on her. Later in the film, he attempts this with Marianne. But, despite having ample opportunity to feed on her right then and there, he decides to kidnap her and bring her in front of Helsing so he can turn her in front of the hunter as a final insult.

** Averted for [[OurVampiresAreDifferent Vampires]] in ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIDaggerfall Daggerfall]]'' and ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind Morrowind]]'', where the traditional "bite the neck" feeding method is replaced by a vampire-exclusive [[VampiricDraining Absorb Health]] spell. It can be Downplayed instead, if you choose to break into homes and use the spell on the residents. ''Morrowind'' also includes the Vampire's Ring as a legendary item, which allows non-vampires to use this ability.



** Similar in ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'', except that it's [[SequelDifficultyDrop much easier]]: While you still have to feed on sleeping victims, and if you're caught doing it you're in deep shit, vampires in this game have a +25% bonus to both stealth and illusion magic, including invisibility, and vampiric feeding is one of a very, very few actions that a PC can perform while invisible that won't break invisibility. Sufficiently sneaky vampires can invisibilify themselves and feed off of a sleeping NPC in a crowded room with no one the wiser.
** In ''Dawnguard'' you can avoid the entire procedure. Using Vampiric Seduction lets you bite awake victims and as a Vampire Lord you can just grab and feed in the middle of combat.

** The series' lore states that there are over 100 known vampire "bloodlines", and while many play this straight as their primary form of feeding, some avert it, such as bloodlines who consume their prey whole while others place their victims into magical comas, to be consumed at the vampire's convenience.
