This phenomenon has been around, especially applying to vampires, for quite a long time, making this OlderThanTheyThink for people assuming this to be only a recent phenomenon. For instance, with the recent popularization of the fact that North American wolves are usually not that aggressive to humans and are loving parents, then it stands to reason that werewolves can be seen as attractive company to have. Also, considering some particular forms of mythology such as HornyDevils and the number of god/mortal pairings in Classical mythology, this attraction to the exotically dangerous may simply be an endemic part of human thought, and reflected in stories throughout history.

* Needless to say, common within the UsefulNotes/FurryFandom. Their perspective on anthropomorphic characters often means that a piece of media's monster will attract a MisaimedFandom instead of being feared as intended. Although the manner in which some monsters are depicted (either actual appearance or how their character is displayed/developed) can often suggest [[{{Fanservice}} a pandering to such desires]], or that the creator themselves [[AuthorAppeal had some ambivalence]] about the monster in question.

Most often this is seen in erotic romance novels, or their counterparts in other media. The main character will be an ordinary woman, the better for the reader to relate to her, and the love interest may be anything from an ordinary man [[JekyllAndHyde with a monstrous curse]] to a ravenous werewolf, bloodthirsty vampire or even a cruel and inhumane demon. At first, said monster will regard the woman as either a nuisance or an actual prey item, but through ThePowerOfLove, she will persevere and manage to transform him into a {{Bowdlerised}} version of the source myth, perhaps retaining some rough edges but otherwise a relatively decent being. Admittedly this can create some interesting story possibilities if done well, both in such a creature having an inherently contradictory nature and in how the creature and his lover deal with said contradiction, particularly in how they do or do not come to a better understanding and balance and whether the creature can fight his inner nature/become a better person while still retaining what their lover finds sexy about them. (I.e., RuleOfDrama.) If done poorly, however, the result can be either a lot of {{Wangst}} or a very dark case of ValuesDissonance, ProtagonistCenteredMorality, and MoralMyopia.

* ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' has the Tsaesci, a race of supposed "[[SnakePeople snake]] [[VampiresAreSexGods vampires]]" native to [[{{Wutai}} Akavir]], a continent far to the east of Tamriel. They invaded Tamriel late in the 1st Era but were defeated, and the survivors were incorporated into Reman Cyrodiil's fledgling empire. They are said to have left behind [[InterspeciesRomance children with the Tamriellic races]] who are said to be "beautiful, if frightening". (Sources conflict over just how serpentine the Tsaesci really are, though some state that they have fully snake-like lower bodies.)

* Invoked and subverted in ''Literature/BloodandChocolate'', but from the werewolf heroine's point of view (Vivian). After she shows her true nature (transformation into wolf being voluntary) to the Aiden, the man she loves (and who also happens to like the occult and things like this), he becomes scared of her, tell lies at school about her and, eventually, attempts to end her life by shooting her with silver. Later, the pack leader Gabriel reveals he was once in love with a human, [[spoiler: but there were times when they were having sex and he ended up starting to transform because it felt better (to which Vivian recalls wanting Aiden to bite her at times). However, once he went too far and the girl noticed and started screaming. Gabriel tried to hold her to calm her, but with his strength, he killed her by accident. Vivian asks him why they care for humans, if they can't love them back. Gabriel merely state how sometimes they may invoke sympathy and the need to protect them.]]

* One of the most (in)famous 'yiff' series in UsefulNotes/FurryFandom of this is JayNaylor's ''The Fall of Red Riding Hood'', which culminates with the Wolfen using a [[LovePotion powerful mind-altering substance]] called Cottonwine to seduce a large part of the human kingdom before being driven back.
