What Stopped The Nephilim?

Q. I was wondering if you believe that something about the human reproductive system changed after the flood along with our shortened life spans that rendered the nephelim incapable of interbreeding with humanity as they did in Gen. 6. I know there are other references throughout the old testament, but I can’t understand why all of the sudden they would stop being so wide spread and why the abductions would be so oriented around the reproductive organs. Why not just continue to mate as they did prior to the flood?

Now moving ahead to Revelation 17:4, we are told that the woman on the beast is arrayed in purple and scarlet and was glittering in gold. Does the common use of these colors (including Revelation’s absence of the color blue) reveal specific clues to us about the woman on the beast, and if so, what could they be?
