With Poe, sex is ever-present but only implied. Haven't read recent sexy horror like Ann Rice, et al.
(Over the hills we go my dear,
to my house which is near.
It's a little house with red curtained windows,
and a fireplace with red glowing cinders, ....)
Re: Hellraiser: "I sat alone and waited for that uncanny light from another world to filter its way through the dust-filled dark and project its mysteries onto the screen. The first of those mysteries came in the form of Frank Cotton, a man who had tasted all the intimate pleasures the body had to offer, but whose fascination with them had been dulled through time and repetition. The film opens with Frank at the end of a quest to obtain the holiest of holies: a magic box that promised to satiate his most extreme desires and deliver him into a state of perpetual pleasure and revelation."
Sounds a lot like Against Nature and 120 Days of Sodom, a dark commingling of the sacrament and perversion, pleasure and death.
Perhaps not written by Ligotti, however? It is signed "– Zack "Geist Editor" Parsons (@sexyfacts4u)"
Zack Parsons by the way has contributed a parody of Lovecraft to A Commonplace Book of the Weird, which brings me back to >7 paradoxosalpha: I can't help thinking that Machen might well have been horrified to learn he'd anything in common w. Lovecraft except, possibly/probably and anachronistically, a Fox News state of mind.
Here is a cutting from OK's textual embellishment to "The Dreaming Boys," an evocation of the wondrous awakening adolescent sexuality... pulled from the site aptly named "inspirationalstories.com":
Little red fish, little fish red
with a triple-edged knife
I’ll cut you dead,
then with my fingers I’ll tear you in two,
put an end to the silent circling you do.
