Playing With: Kiss of the Vampire
Basic Trope: Being bitten by a vampire is a strangely enjoyable experience.
  • Straight: Alice is bitten by Bob, and moans with pleasure.
  • Exaggerated: Alice has an orgasm the instant Bob's teeth pierce her skin.
  • Downplayed: Alice is bitten by Bob and shows no discomfort.
  • Justified:
    • This universe's vampires inject a non-harmful venom which dulls pain and acts as an aphrodisiac. That way, they don't have to kill their prey in order to feed, and makes the ordeal a lot easier for all the parts involved.
    • Bob bites down just enough to pierce the skin; the rest is all the lips and tongue, and Bob happens to by pretty skilled with those.
    • Alice has a biting fetish
  • Inverted: Vampire Bites Suck
  • Subverted: Alice moans and smiles, until we see that Bob hasn't used his teeth yet. When he actually bites down, Alice screams.
  • Double Subverted:
  • Parodied: Every conversation about biting is laden with Does This Remind You of Anything?. Bob at one point bites another woman and Alice accuses him of cheating.
  • Zig Zagged: Being bitten causes reactions back and forth between pain and pleasure, with no correlation between ferocity of the attack reaction to it.
  • Averted:
    • Alice either doesn't feel the bite at all or has the reaction you'd expect from a woman having two teeth rammed deep into her throat.
    • Vampires don't exist.
  • Enforced:
    • "We need a source for more sexual tension between Alice and Bob. How about when Bob bites her, she has starts to enjoy it?"
    • Freud Was Right
  • Lampshaded:
  • Invoked: Alice takes painkillers and psychotropic drugs before the bite, so that she'll enjoy it.
  • Exploited: ???
  • Defied: Bob bites Alice and she screams and writhes in agony.
  • Discussed: "It doesn't hurt at all, really. It's bizarre how good it feels."
  • Conversed: "Why is she liking that so much?" "Rule of Sexy" "For a vampire bite?" "Fetish Fuel"
  • Deconstructed:
    • Alice develops an addiction to being bitten and ends up suffering from long periods of severe blood loss, lethargy, and anemia.
    • The experience it's portrayed like something extremely similar to a rape. Just because the vampire's bite induces a state of chemically induced euphoria, that doesn't make it any less traumatic for an unsuspecting victim.
  • Reconstructed: However, Bob eventually turns her into a vampire, so she can enjoy being bitten as much as she wants with the benefit of a rapidly regenerating blood supply.
