By providing the following information, I want to help vampires and donors to understand why it is NOT a good thing to bite. Love nips is not what I am talking about here. It is the breaking of the skin to get a donation.

10-15% of human bites become infected. Most of the time, the person with the bite delays getting medical attention because of the anaerobes germs. Anaerobes germs are germs that grow in an area where there isn't oxygen. When you bite someone hard enough to break the skin you push the germs in your spit, down into the skin where oxygen cannot reach. Spit (saliva) contians 100,000,000 germs per ml, representing over 190 different types: hepatits B, hepatits C, herpes virus, syphilis, tuberculosis, and tetanus to name a few. HIV also can be transfered this way, but it is extremely rare.

Most bites can be treated with an antibiotics taken at home, but a few are so infected that you must be admitted to a hospital for IV antidiotics. You may also have to have the bite debride. Which means cutting the dead, rottening skin away from the healthy tissuse.

So PLEASE reframe from letting your vamp bite you so hard it breaks the skin. If the vamp insits, you be the bigger person and keep yourself from harm. Learn the signs of infection and seek medical help imedately. Trust me we have heard it all and seen it all. We are just interested in getting you better.

... though I cannot disagree with its message.

I think this is very good information to be passing around. I have a Vampirism group in a Wiccan community and even there I witness sooo many self-proclaimed "kin" (I get the feeling most of them are lifestylers, but still) talk about biting. It is also prevalent in the BDSM communites. I can't help but wonder why so many people don't get the feeling that maybe biting is not such a good idea, maybe it is just me. Anyhow, the topic of this discussion should become common knowledge especially since there is such a prevalence of a lack of common sense in many individuals.

It's not so much that as we need the bacteria in our mouths for the most part to start digesting our food, and fight off any other bug that isn't native to our mouths environment and keep it from harming us. It'd be like taking our beneficial e. coli bacteria in our intestines and thinking we can inject it under our skin without harm.

Also, biting hurts quite a bit...unless they have naturally sharp teeth, it's a slow and painful process for the teeth to break the skin.  Tantric feeding, i assume, is rather light nips...whereas actual biting...well, i'd prefer razor blades any day...(but then again, im kinda emo >.>)
