Your Hostess
I am going to leave this particular page as an introduction to the subject. I do this for several reasons…
1. I am web-mistress to  an entire society of true vampiric
individuals, and grow quite weary of  reiterating the same points all the time
2. If you would like in depth information, Please visit:

I am going to take a moment, and describe the difference 
between TRUE vampirism and the Romanticized literary 
stereotype that we are faced with…

Society has become accustomed to thinking of blood sucking, immortal beings who have risen from the grave to seek and destroy humans in a quest for self-preservation. This is 
FICTION.
The fictional literary vampire came from a whole host of 
folklore and mythological accounts of such creatures…

THIS IS NOT TRUE VAMPIRISM
(at least not the kind I am familiar with)

Nor is the "White Wolf" RPG

My own perception on the vampiric reality is this:

Vampirism in true form is the need or ability to take the energy of those around you, and use it effectively for your own purposes. Yes, some use blood for this purpose.
But we are NOT creatures of any kind, and we RESENT the over-generalized implication that this should be the case.

This is a condition many were born into...and  a very REAL, sometimes disturbing reality for those afflicted. The 
physiological reasons for the many types of true vampirism
include diseases that cause blood lust, such as porphyria...all the way up to over-active and hard-to-control psychic abilities. 
It is all quite individual.

I must be quite clear in explaining that one vampiric perspective among many is not true and accurate for all vampiric persons.
I gained one perspective from my own experiences with a group of Vampires on the East Coast of the US…This is 
accurate and true representation and accounts of their lifestyles, information they provided as to their own belief 
systems...I had previously included some essays here, and those were not meant to be used as a guide to vampirism.
Even among the group, individuals varied in their own 
Individual perceptions….
This information was misused.
So it is no longer available.
Truly, you must understand that there is no 
ONE WAY
In these matters.
Each manifestation of vampiric abilities is different, and as in all things, the perception of each person afflicted is also quite different. The forms in which the abilities are expressed are quite varied as well, as the individual can choose which ways he/she shows his/her true nature.

And that is the essence of it.
