This article for The Guardian delves into the lives of “real vampires” living amongst us. Find an excerpt below, then the full story here:

“Drinking blood isn’t what Hollywood makes it out to be, according to real-life vampires. First of all, there’s no biting – that’s neither safe nor sanitary – and with too many vital arteries, the neck isn’t the favored spot. Transactions aren’t carnages leaving the victim lifeless behind in a dark alley, and nor do vampires sleep in coffins or burn in daylight. They’re generally cool with garlic. Most of them don’t even have fangs.”
