	I think Jim Berger has a great idea in using merfolk and sirens. 
The Odyssey also brings to mind nymphs and satyrs, which were beings with
sexual connotations,  and Gulliver's Travels brings some other things to
mind, though not necessarily sexual.    

	By the way, I wasn't suggesting that incubi and succubi in DR be
demons, only that they were in classical medieval mythology.  I think we
probably have enough to deal with without borrowing trouble.  Just
suggestions.  I just didn't (and don't) think that vampires were on
target as sex objects.  They may use sex as a means to an end, but their
objective is not sexual.  At least, that's my understanding.  I was
attempting to find something more appropos.  Maybe Jim's idea is the
best, although nymphs and satyrs are tempting. (Pun definitely intended.)

Take care, y'all.

Dariel the Aged and definitely too tired to continue.
