I've read it a lot of time ago (it was one old spanish traduction), but I can not agree with the idea of it as a warning against lesbianism. I see more of a way to explore sexuality and the tabus of the time it was written. It was the first book about female vampires, and it set a stereotype to our days, and not only for female vampires. Carmilla uses its beauty and feminine arts with her victims, who fall in love and voluntarily surrender to her. This too happens in Dracula, and in more modern vampire books.
