How to Become a Real Vampire – An Interview

become a real vampireAfter a couple of recent articles that touched upon the topic of real vampirism today, a commenter by the name of Sappho Wolf of Philadelphia offered to provide some additional, more accurate insight into the community.

Sappho Wolf is the founder of VampGeist, a site that sort of acts as a media front for the distribution of facts and information about real vampires today.

In this interview, I ask Sappho some questions that probably most mainstream readers would ask if they’d ever encountered someone that describes themselves as a vampire.

Sappho talks about the definition of vampirism, how society tends to falsely categorize vampires, and a little bit about how to become a real vampire today if you lean in that particular direction.

At this point, I openly admit to holding a long list of beliefs and biases about members of this particular community, so I was very much looking forward to, and welcomed, this intelligent discourse with Sappho.


become a real vampire

Ryan: Could you provide some of your background and expertise on this topic?

Sappho: I am one representative and one voice of the vampire community. I have been involved with the real vampire community since 1985. I am looking to continue working for the community, especially by bringing in my professional assets in the media and in publishing. Additionally, I am open to mentoring individuals who feel the pull of the vampire, but aren’t entirely certain what they are.

become a real vampireMy “awakening”, as it were, happened on August 6, 1985–the fortieth anniversary of the dropping of the atom bomb on Hiroshima. I had come into the sphere of the Order of Maidenfear, a vampire sanctuary, months before through initiated friends that seemed to really understand what I was experiencing. On that day, the puzzle pieces of my thoughts clicked into place. I too was a vampire. I decided that I would never deny that aspect of me–in fact, I could never deny it. I would embrace vampirism and my existence as a vampire.

For the following four years I spent a great deal of time at House Maidenfear, the headquarters of the Order in Philadelphia, learning and developing my own abilities. My own initiation was in 1989, once I turned 18. However, I had to take the Maidenfear Way and my own life as a vampire on an adventure. I moved away to college, where I studied history and linguistics and became an expert vampire researcher. I was able to enhance that skill in graduate school in Florida. Wherever I went, I made connections with the local vampire communities. I came home to House Maidenfear in 2001 and I was elected to my current station as Matriarch in 2003.

I came to call myself Sappho after a thorough reading of her poetry. Her words have such an ability to wrench deep emotional energy that I came to regard her as something of a vampire herself.

I’m known affectionately as the “Vampire Philosophe” for the amount of time I’ve spent in the more cerebral aspects of the vampire existence. Using the Advanced Bonewits’ Cult Danger Evaluation Frame created by the late Isaac Bonewits, I’ve helped people avoid entanglement with cult groups. A few of my short pieces have been adopted for use and inspiration by community members. These include Tacrostica, Creed of the Kindred, Second Creed of the Kindred, and the Hybrid Vampire Handbook.

Ryan: How would you define the term ‘Vampirism’ in general, in a way that encompasses the beliefs of the majority of the community?

Sappho: There exists an entity of living energy all around us and in the universe. This energy is both alive itself and imbues all things with life of one degree or another. A vampire is an adept at energy play, an adept at tapping into this living energy for self-benefit. A vampire knows how to take what energy they want and need and use it for their own purposes.

Ryan: Many people know self-described Vampires as people that cut themselves in order to suck on each other’s blood. Would you say that’s an accurate description of a majority practice? If so, what is the purpose?

Sappho: If the simple definition of vampire involves the taking of blood, we should add every phlebotomist in the world to our ranks.

People who cut themselves in order to drink or offer blood are suffering from a psychiatric disorder that I’m not qualified to discuss at any length. It stems from something other than the idea of being a vampire

This is a semantic issue that we in the community need to face, and sooner rather than later.

Ryan: Why does the community base its beliefs/name upon a mythological/fictional creature?

Sappho: Let’s look at how mythology is determined. I’ve heard it said that mythology was cutting edge technology and science of an earlier age. Mythology was a way of explaining what could not otherwise be explained in terms an average person can understand.

My mentor was not looking at the vampire as the creature of legend. Instead, she saw a vampire archetype that seemed to be common to human beings around the world. The common denominator when everything was boiled down and examined was a creature that somehow was able to take living energy and life force.

What we call vampire appears in many guises.

truth about vampires—> In the Philippines, the aswang is an extraordinarily beautiful woman by day, but at night, she turns into a flying monster. Her preferred prey are local children, and she does not feast on their blood so much as steal away the energy that keeps them alive.
—> The civatateo of the Aztec Empire were servants of the central god Tezcatlipoca. This status was their afterlife reward for having died in childbirth, which to the Aztecs was as noble as dying in battle. Hideous to look upon, the civatateo were especially fond of feeding on children, perhaps in a kind of revenge for the infants that claimed their own lives. To a mortal, a child would appear to be dying of a wasting illness.
—> Appearing in many Japanese folktales, the kitsune is a shape-shifter. Most often she takes the form of a wild fox or a beautiful maiden. Sex is her device for feeding from a victim. The kitsune is also a great prankster.
—> Lamia was once the queen of Libya. As punishment for some affront, the goddess Hera slew Lamia’s children. As revenge, Lamia abandoned her mortal form to drift through the countryside draining the blood of infants. Later, lamia was any child-killing demon.
—> The rakshasa is an especially powerful vampire in India. Its shape-shifting abilities are unparalleled. At the very least a human can be struck with nausea and vomiting just by passing through the area where a rakshasa has been. A young boy who, for whatever reason, eats human brains will become a rakshasa.
—> Greece has an especially rich vampire tradition, and the common name for these creatures is vrykolakas. They can be created through improper burial, immorality in life, or dying unbaptized. Everyone who is killed by the vrykolakas will then become vrykolakas.
—> I can’t leave this subject without mentioning my personal favorite, the Balkan vampire watermelon. Any object left outside on the night of a full moon was believed to become vampiric, so why not watermelons? Of course, vampire watermelons aren’t to be feared. They don’t have teeth, and if they did, they wouldn’t create much horror by biting ankles. More than anything, they are a nuisance, rolling around and growling at people. I bet you’ll never look at a watermelon the same way now.

Ryan: What is a ‘real’ vampire in your opinion…does everyone in the community believe vampires (people that can’t survive without drinking someone else’s blood) are real beings?

Sappho: We never really know what goes through another person’s mind or what intentions they have in their heart. Therefore I’m not one for examining everybody who claims to be a vampire for an empirical list of symptoms that must be present. But I can say with confidence that drinking blood does not make anyone more of a vampire than anything else.

Although I know a few vampires who would disagree heatedly with me, there’s simply no such thing as a physiological need to drink blood. The need, which is very real in some cases, is a psychological one.

But we tend to be an open minded and accepting community. No one is alienated based upon their feeding preferences, provided they are carried out with careful consent and within the guidelines of the law.

Ryan: Medically, ingesting someone else’s blood has not been shown to be of any nutritional or medical value (unless you’re losing your own blood) – so is there some other spiritual/metaphysical reason for doing it?

become a real vampireSappho: Transfusions have been a complicated procedure for a very long time, and that is before any patient starts to receive new blood. All along, people have felt that somehow the energy of the donor is somehow passed along to the recipient. It also hasn’t been that long since transfusions between races was forbidden. In any case, the notion of there being more to the blood than just the blood isn’t new.

I can’t give you a personal account of the effects of drinking blood. I can tell you that people have claimed everything from being restored to the attainment of some kind of Nirvana from blood.

Ryan: Most of the mainstream literature about vampires involves darkness, death and murder by Vampires. Do you think this might explain the criminal nature of those elements of the vampire community that make the news (murders, assaults, etc…)?

Sappho: Actually, mainstream literature is turning the vampire into a romantic hero and finding ways to remove the monster from the legend. Vampire romances can’t be written quickly enough to keep up with the demand.

Literature is not responsible for the mindset of the criminal vampire. Generally these are people who are hip-deep in problems in the first place. The interest in vampirism simply masks other problems.

Ryan: It seems that many apparently mentally disturbed individuals identify themselves as a vampire. Is there a way to know if someone is a ‘real’ vampire from the vampire community? Is there some central organization or registration?

Sappho: Mentally disturbed people do a lot of things. They star in movies, they run for public office, they develop a messianic complex, they hoard Twinkies, they work as flight attendants. How do we pick out the mentally secure ones from the sociopaths? It’s a question facing the vampire community just as it faces society at large.

There are several large organizations within the community (including my own) whose members reflect the ideology of their particular groups. But there is nothing that includes the entire community. This matter is currently being hotly debated and solutions are sought, but so far to no avail.

Ryan: What do you say to people that consider the vampire lifestyle to be delusional, disturbed or just plain ‘wrong’?

Sappho: People have a right to think what they want. It’s not likely that anything I could say would change their minds. Sometimes I suggest that following the teachings of a man dead these past two thousand years could be considered delusional as well…but in general I try to keep the peace.

Ryan: Any last words of wisdom or insight about the vampire community for people out there that are sincerely interested in learning the truth about modern day vampires?

Sappho: We all need to forget what we think we know, and instead try to understand people of all types for who they are, even if their existence is somehow beyond our understanding. Individuals should define the community rather than the community defining individuals. And if you have a question, ask!

**Editor’s Note** – I would like to thank Sappho for taking the time to take part in such a detailed and thorough interview. This discussion goes a long way toward helping the mainstream understand what the vampire belief system, and the community as a whole, is really all about.

As an aside, many readers might have notice that question 2 was somewhat brief – partially due to a poorly asked question which didn’t really focus in on the real point…whether the act of blood sucking really takes place and why. I decided to ask Sappho a follow-up question, in an effort to get some elaboration on that one critical issue that many people – when they first encounter the topic of vampires – focus on. I asked Sappho to elaborate about the blood-consuming practices and the rationale behind it.

What I received in return was a well-written response on just that matter specifically. It is a post-length write-up in itself, so I’m going to publish it in its entirety a little later this week. If you’re at all curious about that aspect of vampirism, I think you’ll greatly enjoy her elaboration on the topic.

    Well done Sappho! Very well said and well thought out. Sadly I doubt it will catch the headlines that “Six Recent Cases of Crimes by Vampires” will get, but I suppose there is no going back on sensationalism already past.

  • Raven

    {I asked Sappho to elaborate about the blood-consuming practices and the rationale behind it.}

    Will the response to your question be posted soon? Fascinating subject matter.

  • A Sang Vamp

    If you are going to post an article about blood drinking vampires could you please post something by an actual blood drinking vampire and not by someone who obviously does not understand it, believe in it and has never partaken of it who will just be making speculations which those of us who are blood drinkers find offensive and have been fighting against since we helped build the community so many many years ago.

  • Anonymous

    Thanks Raven – yes, that one is actually scheduled to get published tomorrow morning at 9am. I hope that it inspires some public discourse and discussion. I agree – I’m just as fascinated as everyone else.

  • Anonymous

    A Sang Vamp – I’ve contacted one Sanguinary so far, but no response. I am certainly hoping to get some feedback from a long-time member of that side of the community with some leadership. I’m not sure I would say that Sappho doesn’t understand it, she seems quite well-informed to me…

  • Anonymous

    Thank you – I guess it was expected that it wouldn’t be well received by blood drinkers, but then that is an area that I’m having difficulty accepting, scientifically speaking, doesn’t involve mental disturbances. I know that might come across as offensive – as Sappho points out some people consider Christianity as mentally disturbed. But I can’t wrap my head around the need to ingest human blood – biologically, there’s no sense to it. Spiritually, I guess it’s arguable.

    If you know of someone within the Sanguinarian or Hybrid sections of the community that could speak with some authority, I’d love to talk to them.

  • http://www.vampgeist.com Lupia Sappho Wolf

    Seeing the reactions from certain fragments of the community, I’m beginning to wonder exactly why my comments on blood drinking have struck such a nerve. How many of us have figured out that in order to find tolerance and acceptance we have to begin with explanations and ideas that are a little more palatable to society at large? Like it or not, we’re existing in a society that is not likely to look favorably on blood drinking in the near future, and like it or not, you’re part of this greater society whether you drink blood or Mountain Dew. After 25 years in the community fighting against the stereotypes that have been applied to ME, I’m proud to make some progress however small towards the radical idea that being a vampire is more than blood drinking. Diss me if you will, but these are ideas that have strength and clarity. These are ideas to change perception.

  • http://www.vampgeist.com Lupia Sappho Wolf

    Thank you Deacon! You’ve always been a thinker I have admired.

  • LadyCG

    As a Sanguinarian, and the Author of “Practical Vampirism for Modern Vampires” I”m with your feelings on the matter, Lelitu.
    I too was left with a sour taste after reading the article.

    I thought the Sang / Psi wars were over, but apparently, I was mistaken and we’re going to start that all over again.

    I’m Sanguinarian, and totally disgusted by what I’ve read here.

    I’d have to say that with so many of we Sangs being as public and well known as we are, the author of this piece did not look very hard for a Sang to discuss blood feeding with. I can tell you that people doing documentaries have had no issues finding myself of other reputable Sangs to talk to and even put on camera.

    It really would have been more appropriate to discuss blood drinking with an actual blood drinker rather than with someone who, apparently, to my surprise, has chosen to marginalize a huge portion of our community.

  • Anonymous

    Thank you for your comment. I can tell you that the search has only begun. However, had I started by interviewing a “Sang” – the non-“Sang” vampires would probably have the same complaint you had. It seems apparent to me there’s quite a rift here within the community itself. It should never disgust you that a perspective is being offered from within your own community. And I can also assure you that I will do my very best to make sure that all perspectives are covered.

    Thanks for your comments. I also have never heard of any medical study involving sanguinarians, but I’ve heard of psychological research…I’m sure most folks here have heard of Renfield’s Syndrome (http://www.reference.com/browse/Renfield+Syndrome).

    “People who suffer from this condition are primarily male. The craving for blood arises from the idea that it conveys life-enhancing powers. According to Noll, the condition starts with a key event in childhood that causes the experience of blood injury or the ingestion of blood to be exciting.”

    I’d imagine that particular topic has been debated to death already within the Sanguinarian community? Is the syndrome considered an invalid theory? I can only imagine, trying to think through this logically, that this sort of syndrome seems to explain the “desire” or compulsion to drink blood?

  • Anonymous

    There are also tribes that practice cannibalism – but where do you draw the line? Why wouldn’t the consumption of blood from your same species be classified as a form of cannibalism?

    And yes – feeding off metaphysical energies is a central tenet of many world belief systems…they just use words other than “feeding” for it.

    Yes, I can accept the nutritional value of blood – and if that’s all it comes down to then why not simply eat animal blood dishes (like blood sausage…)? I’ve had some myself as a kid – very tasty actually. But again, the concept of consuming any part of humans for nutritional value appears bordering on cannibalism, right?

    Isn’t there an entire branch of psychology focused primarily on “abnormal” psychology that may not cause dysfunction in a person’s life, but creates a behavior that is not the “norm” – correct?

    http://www.thefreedictionary.com/abnormal+psychology

    “abnormal psychology
    n
    (Psychology) the study of behaviour patterns that diverge widely from generally accepted norms, esp those of a pathological nature”

  • http://www.vampgeist.com Rob Parratore

    I’m a clinical researcher at the University of Pennsylvania, and I would like to underline the psychopathic nature of “sang vampirism”. Obviously when Ms. Wolf mentioned a psychiatric disorder she did not mean it is an insult, but rather as an explanation. Yes, if you feel the need to drink human blood, you are indeed suffering from a disorder. This does not invalidate your need or your condition. This does not mean you are “crazy”. This means that there’s something going on in your own brain chemistry that is aberrant from the norm. There’s no judgment here. However, you should be aware of the dangers of ingesting human blood, such as but not restricted to HIV and hepatitis. These are not questions of lifestyle choice or preference, but of health. Those of you who have gotten so angry at the suggestion your blood habit might not be wise should take a better accounting of your situation. Beyond that, so long as drinking blood is a part of your life, you will most likely never be able to go public with it, and any cries for tolerance are simply ludicrous. Ingesting blood is taboo for good reasons.

  • Anonymous

    Thank you for taking the time to offer insight from your work Rob…I really appreciate that. And I agree completely, there should be no judgment. I think your feedback here helps a great deal with understanding this situation. Thanks again.

  • Guy

    The Psi vampires (just using that term for easy reference) sound a lot like alchemists. Sanguinarians sound a lot more like a group with a paraphilia.

    Now, that’s not a value judgment, just an observation. Many paraphilia’s are totally non-deviant in that they happen in a sane and consensual manner.

    Seems to me the only common bond between the two groups is the term ‘vampire’. So where’s the conflict? Does one group not want the other to associate with the term ‘vampire’?

    Well that’s the way of the world isn’t it? Somebody always saying they’re this or that and spoiling the lot for a bunch of good people of the same feather.

    Overall, I think the interview was enlightening and did nothing to tarnish my view of anyone.

    On another topic, Rayvanna, mental illnesses do NOT necessarily have to make it where the person cannot function in day to day life. I’m speaking from experience and education here. One in five people have, do ,or will experience a mental illness in their lifetime.

  • A Sang Vamp

    No one said we didn’t get by on animal blood. Some of us do. Human blood is simply better all the way around. Perhaps it is a matter of compatibility I do not know. Some don’t choose to be less healthy because it would be more acceptable to the masses.

    Tribes who have practiced cannibalism are relatively few. Cultures who use blood in their normal diet were plentiful up until a couple hundred years ago. You can still get fried blood as an appetizer in some bars in England so it is not really that unusual.

    If you are going to consider blood consumption cannibalism do you also consider oral sex to be cannibalism? It is the consumption of a bodily fluid after all. To me cannibalism is the eating of the flesh so I do not consider drinking blood to be such but I do consider Catholic communion to be cannibalism.

    Why is the belief one has the need to consume blood a psychosis and mentally disturbance but the belief that you need to consume energy is not? Have there been medical or scientific studies proving the validity of the energy vamps claims? How about just proving the energy “fed” on exists or that it is possible to actually feed on energy? There have been studies proving the nutritional value of blood……..

  • Ravynna

    Please refrain from mispelling my name. Abnormal behavior is dictated by the culture that a person lives in. People have been consuming animal blood for most of human history and many artists have used their own blood in their paints. A mental illness is detrimental to a person’s life and the lives of the people around them. I too have personal experience in this area and schooling in Psychology. It is easy to make a snap judgement on people that you do not know and are being culturally biased against them. I personally know sanguinarians, hybrids, and psis. They are often more mentally healthy than so-called “normal” people because they have made the effort to be self-aware and control themselves. I personally think that everyone has something different about them that more than likely falls outside of the status quo. Does that make them mentally ill? I don’t think so. There are more criteria involved in mental illness than someone displaying behavior that is odd to others.

  • AsDaylightDies

    About blood drinking being physical or psychological, I have a comment: The “symptoms” of blood need is expressed both ways. It depends on the vamp of course, but a lot of sangs feel it as something physical, excessive thirst for example. When they drink blood, the thirst goes away. Then why not believe it is a physical need? It’s quite reasonable.
    Personally I think it’s something different, beyond both the physical and psychological, but I honestly don’t know. I can’t speak for all sangs in the community, this is just how I look at it.

    Great to see someone making an effort trying to enlighten vanilla world.

  • Zerochan

    As a hybrid vamp, I am personally insulted by the content of this article. Blood need is as equally valid as the psi need, and easier to prove. Psi vamps are vampires, yes, no one’s disputing that, but what’s pissing people off is how vamps like you, Sappho, openly say that you know everything about sang vampirism, when you do not partake in it. If we were all energy feeders, then we’d all energy feed. Plain and simple. It seems to me that there are more and more pretentious psi vamps like you trying to start the wars all over again by taking over the community. You scarcely allow for sangs and hybrids to speak for themselves anymore. Instead, you think you can speak for us because YOU’RE the majority now. It’s not fair, not in the slightest. I don’t HATE psi vamps, some of the most awesome people in the community that I’ve met are psi’s, hell, I started as a psi-only feeder myself, but I hate people like you who think that you can speak about things you know nothing about. Do you have any idea how hard it really is for blood drinkers in this world? We risk a lot by coming out. You only risk a funny look.

    On the subject of mental illness, I do not believe myself to be mentally ill. I was experiencing symptoms before I even knew that it was blood that I needed. How is that mental illness? On top of that, Renfields syndrome is not a recognized mental disorder, and is characterized by a sexual reaction to blood. Sangs and hybrids do not get off sexually from blood. All the blood does is keep us healthy. THAT’S IT. We CAN use the blood of animals as well if we so choose. The PHYSICAL symptoms we get from blood withdrawal can be debilitating. Believe me, if I could afford it, and not risk persecution, I would submit to a study of this condition without a problem. But as it stands now with psi-vamps saying we’re not real vamps, mentally ill, or just unevolved energy feeders, and bastardization of the term “skeptic” by a growing group of debunkers, that’s not an easy thing!

  • A Sang Vamp

    I see so you felt a need to insult blood drinkers and perpetuate stereotypes against them because the masses applied stereotypes to you and you can’t understand why saying people who drink or offer blood are suffering from a psychiatric disorder is offensive?

    The only reason energy vamps would be more palatable to the masses is if the masses do not really believe you and your claims and they are just humoring you figuring your have a harmless pathology. After all you can at least prove if a blood vamp fed on you and there is probably DNA evidence for it that would allow you to track them down and prosecute them.

    If you believe the claims of energy vamps they can steal your energy and harm you with no trace back to them. No way to prosecute or even prove they have fed on you.

    So please keep your prejudice to yourself and do not speak for sangs.

  • A Sang Vamp

    Except there is no sexual arousal involved for most sangs. It is about maintaining ones health.

  • Belfazaar Ashantison

    Your comments were scarcely “ideas that have strength and clarity”… They were fluff and filler for answers that were as simple as “Yes” or “No”… I remember when you came into the community Sappho… You were pretentious even then…

    Having been in the community since 1978, I remember when a great number of members finally came out of the shadows to start sharing their experiences… You’ve been one of those on the forefront of misdirection since the beginning… And now, you even state here that you did it as some sort of payback for how YOU were treated.

    Its a load of crap. You linked sangs to mental instabilities, deranged behaviors and violent crimes… Did you honestly think that would set well with members of the sanguine portion of the community?

    When you were asked outright if we cut each other and drank each other’s blood, the simple answer would have been “No. Sanguine vampires use willing donors. Many sanguine vampires use sterile techniques to gain the blood while some (such as myself) use a clean technique”… Instead your answer was pure bull and did nothing but cause harm.

    So your way to forward “explanations and ideas that are more palatable to society at large” was to frag a whole section of the community that you CLEARLY have no clue as to how to answer questions on… Smooth move X-lax…

    You didn’t even bother to speak as to the fallacy of the title to the article “How to become a vampire”… *shakes head*

    Your false answers, fluff and filler and outright denigration of sanguine vampires in your response is nothing more than your own personal version of “sangs are psys on training wheels”… And it does nothing but bring shame to YOU as well as the community…

  • Belfazaar Ashantison

    You, dear sir, need to research a bit better… How about YOU get in contact with Joseph Laycock?

    Sanguinary vampirism is psychopathic behavior? Gee. I wonder if you would have been one of those people who called Native Americans barbarians for their consumption of the blood of animals they killed or enemies they slew?

    You also sound like the kind of person that would say that homosexuality is a mental disorder as well…

    Sanguine vampires, especially those like myself, have our donors tested as well as get tested ourselves… Many of us also use the Donor Bill of Rights which I, personally, created…

    Before making statements of a psychological nature, at least take the time to speak with some of us… It might clear up a few of those Western Medicine misconceptions you are passing off as gospel…

  • Belfazaar Ashantison

    No, Ryan, had you done a bit more research you would have found that many sangs and psys will NOT answer questions that do not apply to their particular sphere of influence… Its like asking a Voodoo Priest how to perform a Wiccan Ceremony…

    It was poor form all the way around… Sappho should have known better and in her own words here, stated that her comments were made as a means of payback for crap she got… This, above anything else, invalidates the article and its subsequent remarks made by Sappho in the secondary article…

    I’m sorry, but a bit more research would have saved a hell of a lot of grief…

  • Anonymous

    “Sappho should have known better and in her own words here, stated that her comments were made as a means of payback for crap she got…”

    Where did she say that?

  • Belfazaar Ashantison

    Again, Ryan, re-read the article and take into consideration this statement by Sappho…

    “After 25 years in the community fighting against the stereotypes that have been applied to ME, I’m proud to make some progress however small towards the radical idea that being a vampire is more than blood drinking”

    Her answers were, especially where sanguine vampirism is concerned, distressful, at best… She set out with ‘good intentions’ but, as the old saying goes… The road to hell is paved with them… When she linked vampirism to mental instabilities, she created her own personal hell within the community…

    I’m still pretty old school when it comes to the terminology used… I don’t use terms like “hybrid” choosing rather to used “adaptive” because that is what some of us have had to do… Especially sanguines who were lacking a proper donor… We had to “adapt” to alternative ways of pulling the energy.

    I use “eclectic” to denote a vampire who was born with the ability to draw from more than one energy source naturally…

    Then there is this comment by Sappho, “How many of us have figured out that in order to find tolerance and acceptance we have to begin with explanations and ideas that are a little more palatable to society at large?” In order to do this, she made psychic vampirism out to be acceptable while sanguine vampirism was a mental illness…

    I know you may not have seen it this way, but this is the way it read to a great many of the sanguine vampires within the community…

    As I mentioned on the other article’s comment section, I would love to see the questions you want to ask a sanguine vampire, such as myself…

    You also might not have been aware of the “sangs are psys on training wheels” comment that one psy vampire made in the mid 80s that set the, then burgeoning, community ablaze… That self same psychic vampire has worked tirelessly to rectify that one poor comment… For that, she has endeared herself to the sanguine portion of the community…

    There is also this first portion of Sappho’s comments, “Seeing the reactions from certain fragments of the community, I’m beginning to wonder exactly why my comments on blood drinking have struck such a nerve.” She carelessly and without forethought of action linked sanguine vampires to mental instabilities all the while touting the validity of her own personal form of deriving the much needed energies that vampires require.

    I know you’ve stated as much, but do you truly see why so many sangs are up in arms about these articles? From a journalistic point of view, doesn’t it just raise the hackles on your neck to know that one voice is so harshly shot down by a host of others?

    Its because she spoke on something she, herself, has no clue about… Even after 25 years in the community, she has learned nothing about what it is to be a sanguine vampire…

    In all honesty Belfazaar – I’ve been dealing directly with people who hold certain beliefs very, very dear for a long time. Ufos, aliens, demons, ghosts – you name it, I’ve met crowds of people who will want to hang you from the nearest tree for suggesting that a “truth” they hold dear and true to their hearts could potentially be questioned or *gasp* observed in the light of science. So no – it doesn’t raise the hackles on my neck to see a single, truth-seeking voice harshly shot down by a host…it brings a grin to my lips. You know why? Because I’ve seen it so many times before. She struck a nerve.

    But here’s what I’ve learned over the years – I never look for truth within the hordes that shout the loudest…I search for it from those unique souls that stand in the middle of a firestorm and quietly and calmly state their case. Sometimes that person isn’t very popular. I would think vampires of all variety would understand better than anyone else in the world the concept that the volume of the masses only defines what’s culturally accepted, not necessarily what’s true.

  • Wraiths,..,

    THANK YOU Zaar!
    you should have been asked for the interview in the first place.. clearly.. you KNOW what youe are talking about.. i for one am PUBLICLY ashmed at the comments made by sappho
    .. All this has done was cause more confusion and drive a wedge deeper in our community..

    Wraiths,..,

  • Qwill60

    why you got to be hating on sangs

  • WingedWolfPsion

    As a sang and psy donor, and a well-trained practicing psion–I’m sorry, Sappho, but you are wrong about sanguinarian vampirism. You should have simply stated that the interviewer would need to talk to a sanguinarian in order to understand it, not tried to guess at it and put forth your own theories. Psy-vampires are more numerous than sanguinarians, so you don’t need to pull the “We’re disenfranchised” card, either–it hasn’t been true for a very long time. The ‘psy/sang’ wars are over, stop trying to bring them back, and start listening instead of guessing.

  • Belfazaar Ashantison

    “I would think vampires of all variety would understand better than anyone else in the world the concept that the volume of the masses only defines what’s culturally accepted within a community or culture, not necessarily what’s true.”

    As a person who is constantly in search of the truth, I may not be the most scientifically minded vampire on the face of the planet, but I have learned, through trial, error and the errors of others within the community.

    Belief is a powerful thing, but it is equally blinding where the truth may be concerned. I have written responses on both of these articles in calm silence as others around me are roaring at the top of their lungs. I answered queries you’ve posted and even offered information, help and *hopefully* encouragement to seek all sides of the issue…

    In the end, it will still be the readers who decide what they think is the truth out of the maelstrom of responses Sappho has incited from the Sanguine Vampires that she, in all honesty, maligned with her careless and thoughtless comments… Questions that should have been answered with a simple “yes” or “no” with possibly an explanation as to why “yes” or “no” were answered, truthfully, with nothing more than fluff and filler.

    In 2003, I wrote an article entitled “Vampirism 101″. In 2009, I revamped it (pun intended). As part of the New Orleans Vampire Association, I’ve had the blessing of watching my local vampire community stretch its boundaries and start helping our WHOLE “global” community with such actions as our Homeless Outreach Programs where we provide meals during the 3 Holidays that most people are simply forgotten… We are even working towards establishing a homeless shelter which will not only provide over night stay facilities, but also offer a form of housing to re-establish a person so that they can move into more appropriate housing. Though the council is a round table, I, a sanguinary vampire, lead the homeless actions…

    All too many times, however, the media, in general doesn’t even touch on the works done by the vampire community but will latch onto any illicit behavior labeled or intimated as “vampiric”, such as the recent actions by the 2 people in Arizona or Shelby Ellis… I can point out more than 100 pagan rituals where blood is spilled, drank or offered. The 2 people in the Arizona crimes were heavily into a pagan path which included blood rituals, but it was labeled “vampire” because they drank the blood… Living in New Orleans, and doing some digging, there are over 270 years worth of crimes and criminal activity that was labeled as “vampire”… Just as many crimes that were listed as “Voodoo”… It is always easy to apply a label, it seems to be less about investigation and more about sensationalism…

    Yes. Sappho struck a nerve. But like I’ve suggested re-read the article through the eyes of a sang. Look seriously at where the comments on mental illness were attached. You said yourself that it was reported “word for word”… If that is the case and YOU were a sang, seeing someone who is supposed to be an Elder in the community malign your particular branch of the community, how would you react? Her voice wasn’t truth seeking… YOURS was… In return for the truths YOU searched for you got fluff, filler and enough bull manure to drown a fully grown elephant in…

    It was truly an injustice done to you, your readers and the sanguine community… This is why I’ve taken the time to post responses. This is why I’ve volunteered to give your questions a go… This is also why I have striven throughout my time in the community to learn about ALL aspects of the community, so that I could answer a question about the other types of feedings…

    Below you state, “I guess it was expected that it wouldn’t be well received by blood drinkers, but then that is an area that I’m having difficulty accepting, scientifically speaking, doesn’t involve mental disturbances.” Scientifically speaking there is truth to every myth on the face of the planet, it just takes digging to find that truth…

    To the First Nations, drinking the blood of a fallen foe provided you a measure of their power… It wasn’t ‘scientifically proven’, but many great warriors arose during these practices…

    There are those of us out here that wouldn’t answer your questions with fluff and filler. We would honestly answer from our own experiences… I would do it with a bit of humor (especially poking fun at myself), others will do it in a straight forward educational fashion…

    Either way… Feel free to ask your questions… I will let you know now that I don’t believe in the ‘spiritual’ aspect of vampirism. My spirituality and my vampirism only cross paths occasionally… I do believe in the physiological aspect, which can have an affect on the physical, mental, emotional AND spiritual condition of the vampire in question… Yet, there are those who have melded their vampirism and spirituality in a working path for them… I do not invalidate that path… After all, not everyone out there follows Voodoo as I do…

  • http://sphynxcatvp.nocturna.org/ SphynxCatVP

    You are quoted as saying:
    “People who cut themselves in order to drink or offer blood are suffering from a psychiatric disorder that I’m not qualified to discuss at any length. It stems from something other than the idea of being a vampire”

    Honestly, how did you EXPECT people to react to that?

  • Banesidhe

    Banesidhe

    I am particularly upset with this article, considering that Sappho, in her own words, says she knows nothing about Sanguinarian vampires, and yet feels authorized to speak for us. Personally, I do NOT drink Human blood due to the numerous pathogens found there, such as HIV, Hepatitis, etc… Instead I drink cattle blood on a semi regular basis. Having STARTED as a psi vamp, I find it offensive that someone who has never dealt with the sanguinarian side of vampirism to presume to speak for me, or any other sang vampire. I began partaking of blood because the psi I was getting was no longer meeting the needs my body had in order to stay healthy and fit.

    Sappho, rather than denigrating the sanguinarian community, how about speaking ONLY on what you know, which is the Psi side of vampirism. Let US speak for ourselves, you don’t have the right or enough information to do so FOR us.

  • Anonymous

    I would like to ask everyone to please not blame Sappho. If you need to blame anyone for this, feel free to blame me. I approached her for the interview and she actually tried to avoid the topic of blood-drinking. You can see that in the initial interview. This second part concerning the blood-drinking issue specifically was because I felt she was avoiding the topic – so I pursued it with a follow-up question. Then, I posted it as a separate article as well. Therefore – the blame is squarely on my shoulders, not hers. And I hope to rectify it by asking a Sanguinarian questions about that aspect of vampirism and publishing that accurate information in an upcoming interview, hopefully next week.

  • Banesidhe

    How are you listed under the University of PA’s Directory. I did a search there and cannot find your name under any listing they have… be it staff, faculty, student OR UPHS. Nor can I find your name listed under the Office of Human Research. Would you be willing to provide a curricula Vitia regarding your qualifications?

    But yet you also wrote:

    Sounds awfully subjective and judgemental from here….

    You wrote:
    “Obviously when Ms. Wolf mentioned a psychiatric disorder she did not mean it is an insult, but rather as an explanation.”

    Then she should have specified that from the beginning, or at least in any followup comments. She has had plenty of opportunity, yet as near as I can tell, she did not do so. Therefore one can only guess that it WAS meant to be insulting, considering the lack of any corrective followup on her part.

    You wrote:

    Normal for whom? People are not cookies, Mr Parratore.

    You wrote:
    “However, you should be aware of the dangers of ingesting human blood, such as but not restricted to HIV and hepatitis.”

    Completely forgetting, of course, the dangers of parasites and bacteria in uncooked or undercooked meat (e.coli, salmonella, staph, etc.), prion diseases in improperly handled animals (BSE, etc.), and so on. Obviously you’ve missed the fact that we DO advocate blood testing for just those reasons you listed. :)

    LIFE is a calculated risk. Not just blooddrinking.

    You wrote:
    “Those of you who have gotten so angry at the suggestion your blood habit might not be wise should take a better accounting of your situation.”

    Oh, we know it ‘might not be wise’ – that’s not the issue. We KNOW that.

    Being called psycopathic? Being told it’s all in our heads? That’s the real issue. I’m sure you wouldn’t appreciate being told you have a “psycopathic nature” – what makes you think the rest of us would appreciate it?

    You want to disagree? That’s fine. I don’t care one whit if you agree or not. But don’t stoop to telling people they’re psychopaths, aberrant, and/or have a disorder unless you’re their doctor.

    And you’re certainly not MY doctor. :P

    You wrote:
    “Ingesting blood is taboo for good reasons.”

    Not in many parts of the world, actually. There are many recipes in many countries that include blood – blood sausage being a prime example that most people are familiar with, and there’s different forms of it in different countries.

    It seems to be primarily America that has it’s collective heads up it’s arse about blood in foods.

  • Sappho Wolf

    I would have taken comments like yours more seriously if you’d taken up your quarrels with me personally instead of sidestepping the real issues in favor of blowing smoke on a public forum. I have received much e-mail from vampires who happened to like what I tried to do, and yet not one disagreeing opinion has made it to my mailbox. Why do you think this is? If you would care to be enlightened as to the truth of my statements (since your interpretation of them is so far off base as to be laughable), you and your hair trigger compatriots are welcome to take up the matter with me one on one. You might find yourself rather surprised.

  • A Sang Vamp

    You posted your statements publicly with the supposed intent of educating the masses. Going to you privately about issues we have with your public statement does nothing to correct the misinformation to the public. I am sure if you had made the statements to us privately you might also find yourself rather surprised but you didn’t, you chose to make this a public issue and as such it should be dealt with in the public arena you yourself choose.

    How about you try addressing the concerns your community has like a respectable elder of the community would rather then making excuses and further insulting anyone not in agreement with you?

  • Wraiths,..,

    sorry sappho…
    but, like my dad always said…

  • Belfazaar Ashantison

    No Sappho… You did your speaking in public, why hide from what you fostered? You’ve hidden long enough, don’t you think?

    My comments were not off base, if they were, they would not have been backed by so many voices here and elsewhere. Your pride and pretentious arrogance has always been your fatal flaw… This time it turned out to be your undoing… All the work and respect you gained has dropped to next to nil… I’ve chosen to answer and continue to answer the questions without calling it quits, walking away and flaming others… You chose to turn your back on what you did. Plain and simple. You started a firestorm and then got pissy because you got burned…

    No… I wouldn’t be surprised by any answer for a self-hating vampire who decided to slam what she claimed to be years ago… Too bad too… After seeing your posts on other sites, I used to respect your opinions… Now I think you are on the same level as JS…

  • Belfazaar Ashantison

    Ryan,

    I still believe that you are a person who is trying to do something good… As you, yourself, have stated that you do this with the intent to show people outside of communities that the big eerie things aren’t so eerie once you see the people behind them…

    I am also sorry that you and your readers had to see the barrage of stupidity in a line where cooler intellects should have prevailed… I wish that you would have done a bit more research, but that is because when I do an interview with someone, I like all of the background information I can get…

    I also apologize if my comments brought any heat on you or your Top Secret Writers. It was not my intention. My intentions were to correct misinformation and maliciousness… Nothing more. Nothing less…

    Have a Blessed and Happy Holiday Season…

    Thanks Belfazaar. I must admit that in hindsight I was too rushed in choosing an interviewee, and actually didn’t realize the scope of this community prior to this. Nor did I ever imagine the sort of shenanigans that have gone on. I’m used to giving people that I first meet the benefit of the doubt – but I guess I’ve learned the hard way that I will have to put every interviewee through a bit of a screening process. I never imagined it would come to that – but I guess my exposure to the vampire community has been a lesson learned in that regard. Security first – friendliness and conversation later.I’m hoping we can rebuild the dialog on here with feedback from some of the folks everyone in the community has come to respect. I’ve been lucky to meet three or four amazing folks that treated me with respect, integrity and have been straightforward and fair in their willingness to help me bring this kind of topic to the forefront for people who many never have imagined such a community exists.A few nights ago I almost lost my drive to deal with this community anymore – but then, out of the blue, I was contacted by Lono, of psivamp.org. It was a refreshing, and much needed conversation…and he replenished my drive and my belief that something good can come out of this. He had only good things to say for the three or four folks I’ve sent interview questions to, and I really am optimistic we can break through all of this nonsense and have a mature and enlightening conversation moving forward….I hope? :-)Thanks again for your kind words Belfazaar.

  • Belfazaar Ashantison

    Most of us tend to be very wary when dealing with the media in any manner. It is generally how the news is chopped and disseminated in a fashion that sensationalizes what many of us are trying to get understood is just a physiological condition.

    I, myself, used to be very trusting of the media until one interview in particular… I’ve raised my bar since then… Unfortunately, that means that the media sources trying to get a true story have to jump through a few hoops (as many of them have made me do), but I still work with the media to my fullest ability when it comes to a sit down interview or even a Q&A interview via the internet and email…

    I use the term “physiological” because it covers all aspects of the human condition, physical, mental, emotional and spiritual.

    As I mentioned before, most vampires will not answer outside their sphere of influence or in this case, feed type, without having done extensive questioning so that they understand more about them… It was obvious to several here that that was not the case (thus the heated exchange) with the subject of the interview… Not the interviewer… You actually asked pretty standard questions…

    Again, I offer my services, should you need them with sincere hope that communication remains open, honest and in good faith on both sides of the vampire/media line…

    It always strikes me as odd when s0-called Vampires are so offended at anyone that doubts their claims. Often, religious people cast you aside for not believing in their faith, which usually can lead one to think that they are very insecure with their idea’s and when you challenge their idea’s you challenge their security.

    When you go along with their ideas then you are almost always heartily welcomed as someone “who knows what they are talking about”. Therefore, helping bring a measure of security to an already insecure person.

    In the realm of so-called Vampires, there is little to no agreement as to what they are.

    Some claim, immortality, some claim they are ordinary humans with a craving for blood. Then those with no proof or no blood craving take it a step further by saying they are energy vampires, putting the questioner in a position where he now he certainly “can not” verify the so-called vampires claims.

    In conclusion, the image of the vampire often represents power, influence, special skills and a general persona of specialty. All of these things are fundamental desires of human nature. To be strong, sexually appealing and to believe you are “different” than the rest.

    My “opinion” is that humans who claim to be vampires have manufactured a grand self view. A view that elevates them from their peer’s. If this makes you happy, then by all means, be happy.

    Generally speaking, many people do this. Now we have groups of people claiming to be in a blood line of god’s/aliens. These same people, make an average wage, live in an average home yet this idea grants something special to them.

    I say, each of us, in our own way attempt to manufacture a special circumstance in our lives. If this makes a person happy, then there is no fault in this. Except when the manufactured ideals make one insane and you lose a “safe” grasp of self identity.

    Thus ends my morning coffee opinion on this one single matter.

    Ugh!!! you people are so so stupid. You can’t become a vampire, your born one. If you don’t have a reason to live just wait for one and their aren’t any hybrids that just movie stuff. There is no sucking blood either. Being a Vampire is no good at all people call you a weirdo all the time no fun in it.

    the real question is why does the news lie about everything they only tell what they want u to hear not what actually happened and governments are known for hiding all sorts of things from the public a lots of those are what we call myths.

  • Jerry Alston

    ???hmmm why are people so fascinated by vampires? Why can’t we accept that we are born human? We all have a purpose. And I assure its not wasting it away trying to be something you weren’t born to be.

  • jon

    i’m not asking to be made into one just asking for my own curiosity. but anyone or the person who made this article are vampire’s even real like immortal and stuff not the disease vampirism. because i am of one of the people who think would be interesting to become one but don’t really want to be one. but for me since i think in a way of a scientist, i would like a firm true answer. but from someone who actually a true based vampire who has proof what u can show me what not photoshop images and documents what proves you been alive for ages (more than 100 years) :). **Editor Note: Personal email address removed**
