Dangers of a Non-Contact Lifestyles (or taking the bite out of being politically correct)

We’ve always had our strict codes of ethics among our kind, but the modern political correctness worries me.

Everyone eventually finds the donor sources they are most comfortable with. My husband and I found that being a strong patrons of the arts provides an inexhaustible source of fresh nourishment.

That said, there is a small and extremely vocal group of vampires who want to ban all fresh blood gathering – that means that all blood should come in a jar and be consumed from glasses with no human contact.

Along with blood comes energy. We can’t over look that with every tasting we get a certain amount of life energy (the amount depends on the donor), which is required for maintaining both physical and mental health.

Tell your teens and young adults that is why we don’t go out and feed upon people in the street or total strangers. The energies run negative. We want positive and powerful energies. We also want to avoid those with evil energies.

But to avoid live contact all together is to deny your vampire soul. Some try to say it is the vampire equivalent of becoming a vegan but don’t let that argument sway you – it is not the same thing.

And when your vampire soul doesn’t get what it needs you will go insane and your friends and family will have to put you away or bury you alive until you go into a blood free induced coma. And NOBODY wants THAT.

A few of the side effects of long-term Noncontact lifestyles include:

  • Skin becomes more sensitive to light and sun
  • Healing and regeneration slow down below even human levels
  • Depression affects 90% of vampires who live without human donations
  • Sexual drive drops drastically and in 75% of cases becomes nonexistent.
  • Memory problems
  • Intolerance to cold and desire to hibernate during the winter months
  • Inability to sleep soundly (day or night)
  • Hair becomes dull and thins, often creating bald patches at crown and over ears.

On the extreme end are a number of vegan vampires (yes, please do roll your eyes). The long-term risks are too great to even consider this lifestyle.  The need to face the fact that they can’t change what they are.  No, you can’t be human, even if you once were. Get over it. There is no reversal. Period. If you continue the vampire vegan lifestyle you will be dead or in a coma within 3-5 years.

Note: Blood substitutes such as Perfluorocarbon based are excellent at providing short term help BUT are not a long term substitute for the real thing. Vampires who turn to a LONG TERM all artificial diet (no animal or human blood) are have a 50% higher risk of blindness, insanity and heart failure.

  1. Juliette ~ I’ve never investigated it, but now I’m wondering, what are the long term affects of a completely animal blood diet. My teen is going through that stage where she wants to be vegan (sigh) but we’ve settled on no-human blood. At least for this week. Who knows what she’ll decide to do next week. Not being born a vampire (having obtained my status in the old traditional style) I’ve no idea.

    • Dear Amelia – You are off the hook for a while because teens don’t need as much human blood as adults (around the age of 20 they’ll need a steady diet of it).

      Ask your teen daughter the following questions?
      Do you like gray skin?
      Do you like living with open sores?
      Do you like smelling like old meat?
      Do you enjoy feeling weak?
      Do you like bald patches on your head?
      Do you enjoy not being able to remember even the simplest things?
      Do you want to be in a vampire coma by the time you turn 25?

      If the answer is yes to any of those questions then by all means, she should be a vegan.

      It isn’t just the blood that keeps us going. It is the energy we share with our donors. We have a symbiotic relationship with our human friends. We do them a service by giving them our creative energy and life forces, while they help us by donating a little blood.

      Keep your teens away from popular fiction. We don’t kill or drain people. It is a constant fight to survive in a world where we have to keep our existence secret, yet live with humans.

      My husband, like you, wasn’t born a vampire. I’ll have him contribute a few articles. You all have a lot of issues to consider that the rest of us can never fully understand/comprehend.

      I’m relatively young, (born in 1859) so my scope is fairly modern. If you know any elder vampires check with them for answers. A lot of them are pretty hip and stay in tuned with the modern world – but at the same time they have the long-term experience where they can honestly say “I’ve seen everything”.

      Thanks for your posting. Hope to see you again. And wishing you the best with your daughter.

    • Sorry Amelia, I read your question incorrectly. Silly me. Completely nonhuman blood is ok for short term but we need the human “contact” at least every few years if we want to live long and healthy lives. It isn’t just a physical thing. We’re paranormal creatures and require that human energy. You could go completely animal but you’ll want higher order mammals – barn yard birds and bovines won’t do the trick. We’re talking predatory animals. And don’t even think of dogs or cats – that is just wrong (at least to me. Those are our pets not our food). Put it to your daughter this way: Would you rather drain blood from a wolf or an ape OR would you rather take a pint or two from a handsome human man (wrist, neck, your choice of oh so many nice locations). At least with the human you won’t get fur in your teeth or fleas.
