Vampires and Pedophilia
The connection between vampires and sex cannot be removed. It has always been present, from the Dark Ages when vampires were more akin to zombies, rank and fetid, yet still seeking to have sex with their widows, all the way back to the Babylonian Lilitu, not infrequently blamed for the nocturnal emissions of men. Today, when vampirism has become a veritable religion, when many are playacting at being vampires, and some disturbed individuals have even managed to convince themselves and others that they ARE vampires (Note: I am not speaking of Sanguivores, who are human beings who, for whatever reason, feel the need to consume blood. Sanguivores do not pretend to be anything other than human beings, nor do most “psychic vampires” who claim to feed on energy.), the connection is stronger than ever. Teenage girls fantasize about having vampire boyfriends. And just as with any microcosm of society, there are sexual predators who victimize the young and naive. The vampires of the movies and Literature were predators, too. Vampire predation can be likened to rape. But vampires aren’t REAL, and when human beings engage in such activities, it is a crime, and a despicable one.
I have on occasion read allegations that circulate in various vampire “houses.” A professing “vampire,” an “elder,” will claim to have certain powers, and will allegedly use the Internet to seek out minors with an interest in vampirism. He, or rarely she, will promise to “initiate” the youngster into the mysteries of the “coven.” Only what’s really going on is sexual exploitation. Though thankfully rare, it does happen. Fortunately, most professing elders that I have observed do make a good effort at policing their ranks, trying to weed out such sleazebags, but that doesn’t stop these people from operating as “lone wolves,” trolling the ‘Net every night for fresh victims.
Be vigilant, friends. And if you have children, be even more vigilant. Not against vampires. Against something much worse.
