Outside their community, real-life vampires exist mostly in secret. And once or twice a week, they drink human blood.
If you are referring to the Anne Rice vampires, Vampires of Hellsing, or Castlevania, even Blade, the ever classic Dracula, then yes! Contrary to popular belief, they technically are not “undead” but suffer from a retrovirus which causes their bodies to crave blood instead of.
It wasn’t men who recognized everything that makes certain types of women lust after vampires. For immortal vampires, who drink human blood, people are objects. Maybe they present themselves as sexual objects publicly but do not want to be treated that way during interactions.
