Vampire Virgin!

Virgins rule in “Dracula: Pages from A Virgin’s Diary”!

I don’t like horror movies. Halloween is the one and only time of year when I watch them. Most of these movies are terrible, and I’ve seen some real bombs in Halloweens’ past. This year I’m on a vampire kick. In addition to wanting to be one for Halloween, my movie selections the past couple weeks have included vampire flicks. Personally, I prefer the traditional vampires that hated crosses and daylight, were purely demonic, and made no apologies for what they were — not the whiny, sensitive, all-too-human vampires that are popular today. Therefore, my movie selections included older, less mainstream versions of the vampire saga. And being “traditional” vampires, as those in my movies were, only the blood of a Virgin would satisfy them.

I really don’t like the way Virgins are portrayed as hapless victims in many of these films. I certainly don’t see myself that way. I identified more with the vampires than with these stereotypical Virgins. Vampires and Virgins have a lot in common in that neither of them have sex! And like vampires, Chaste Virgins aren’t even interested in it.

A lot of misinformed people think people that don’t desire sex are “asexual,” but using vampires as an example I can show that this is untrue. Despite the fact that they don’t have sex or want to, Vampires are some of the most sexual creatures there are. It’s just that their sexuality is centered a desire for blood instead of a desire for sex. The act of drinking someone’s blood is for a vampire what sex is for mortals. Similarity, Chaste Virgins are sexual too. Being Chaste does not mean that you are not sexual. It just means that your sexuality is centered around a desire for intimacy instead of a desire for sex. The act of being close to someone and receiving emotional gratification of needs in the form of intimacy is to a Chaste Virgin what sex is to others. Take a vampire, substitute the need for intimacy for the need for blood, and there you have the sexuality of a Chaste Virgin. So many sexually active people have such a hard time understanding how sexuality can exist without sex when they need only watch any vampire movie to get a perfect example of it.

This Halloween I want to be a vampire to because it expresses, not the impotent victim the world thinks I am, but the strong sexual being that I know myself to be.

  2. I’m not so sure I wished they existed. But I they it would make a good example as to how someone cannot have sex and still be a sexual being.

    Hi Miss Daphne,
    I’m on a vampire kick, too. (You may be over yours by now, but my kick is lingering.) I, however, am enjoying the new fangle vampires who struggle to maintain their humanity. I believe that if there were vampires, there would be good ones and bad ones because there is no type of being that would be ALL bad or ALL good. I believe they would lean toward being like they were as humans–the good ones would try harder to be good; the bad ones would have been bad/evil and would relish being that as a vampire. I love these new stories that create new scenarios about vampires. Garlic just stinks; crosses only cause fear when they have the potential to be stakes. You’re dead-on about the need for intimacy and the need for blood! And there are several interesting virgin vampires among the new vampires; most famously/popularly would be Twilight’s Edward. … BTW, read an earlier post and you’re right; you’re not the only black virgin out here; glad to know I’m not the only one either!
