Vampyre Erotica is the fifth album by British Goth rockers Inkubus Sukkubus, their fourth full-length studio album. It contains 12 original songs and a cover of "Paint It, Black" by The Rolling Stones.

As with all of Inkubus Sukkubus' work, the album sticks firmly to neo-pagan themes, emotional angst and vampire folklore.

In 2010 the song Vampyre Erotica was featured in the soundtrack to the British cult comedy vampire film The Vampires of Bloody Island released on the Wibbell DVD label. The film also features five other songs by Tony McKormack's earlier band Vampire Division, including the film's title track "Place of the Dead".
