someone has never heard of stephanie meyer

A slightly diverting, if rather Japan-centric, blog post about sex idioms from around the world. I like 'the autumn breeze begins to blow' for falling out of love.

At number six, though, we have:
batuta ni Drakula.
Tagalog for a powerful penis (literal: Dracula's nightstick) I never really thought of Dracula as being a sexual icon (nor as a nightwatchman?) but I guess 25 million Filipinos can't be wrong. On the evil creature sexual rankings, I'd think that Dracula finishes somewhere in the third quartile, way behind Frankenstein and the Yeti, far ahead of the Mummy, and probably around the same as the Loch Ness Monster.
Really? Is this really what popular culture teaches us about Vampires?
