HuffPo Just Discovered ‘Real’ Vampires

In what must be a shock to some small percentage of people born after 1989, the Huffington Post offers this “shocking” report on a “real-life” vampire couple. Undead? Try unintentionally hilarious.

Benninghoff, 20, met Draven, 38, on a dating website this past February and, while both were into the gothic lifestyle, he wanted a more intimate relationship.

“When he explained that blood sharing would bring us closer together, I asked him to turn me,” Benninghoff said, according to the Daily Star. “Aro cut himself with a razor and offered me his blood. Then I cut myself and he drank from me too. Suddenly I felt the energy rushing through me. It was a magical experience –- much more intimate than sex.”

With a connection like that, it would be silly not to tie the knot so the couple is planning a wedding on Halloween, reported.

But they haven’t yet told Benninghoff’s parents that her daughter has “converted” to vampirism.

Figure out how you’ll tell your mom that you’ve been “turned” by a guy who took his surname from The Crow and keep reading.

    Each to their own. I’m more concerned by the lame wardrobe and make up. Exactly when did vampirism become associated with cheap goth garms.

    Blood does wonders for ones complexion.

  • Justin Lutz

    this is the kind of shit that gives the gothic subculture a bad name. im a goth and im ashamed of these people calling themselves goths.

    • DrDavidKelly

      You’re a goth … hahahahaha!

  • DrDavidKelly

    The human stomach can usually hold down about a pint of blood – any more and you’ll find yourself barfing it back up. Vampire pffff.
