I had seen an article about how it was okay to be horny for the villain, and I don't disagree, plus the prevalence of horniness for villains is as close to a universal as you're gonna get. I think a lot of young people extracted some very novel content from Labyrinth, for example. Romance, particularly the indie romance space I discovered on Kindle when we were making a strip about a Hot Anteater Lycanthrope Man, exemplifies these desires in an almost hyperreal way. There are a dizzying number of increasingly refined categories these books fall into; for precision genre bifurcations, even electronica can't compare with shifter romance. Who gives a shit? It's not real.
It's not real! But just because it's not real doesn't mean it's not important. We need fantasy because it helps us understand how we wish - metaphorically - to intersect with reality. You suppress and demonize it at your peril.
There is a specific villain - one dude - you can't be horny for, but that's it. Past that, it's the Law of Thelema.
