Meet Australia’s real-life vampire who drinks blood and avoids the sun.
Brisbane make-up artist Georgina Condon developed a thirst for blood when she was just 12 years old and has avoided full sunlight for the past 20 years.
The 39-year-old self-employed businesswoman also needs blood for her medical heredity disorder, thalassemia, and sucks it from her boyfriend at least once a week.
Without blood, she struggles to cope with anaemia and a lack of iron.
‘I can become moody and in extremes lethargic wanting to sleep a lot,’ she told Daily Mail Australia on Sunday.
The high from drinking blood is as good as sex.
‘I would put them on par. It is mainly arousal and joy,’ she said.
‘There is a reason that most vampire shows combine the two.
‘It is a form of high that can’t be exactly described.’
Her boyfriend of nearly three years, Zamael, allows her to drink blood directly from a wound, created by cutting his skin with a sterile razor blade and letting it flow a little.
‘It is not daily as that would be far too much a burden on his body, leading to way too many wounds,’ Ms Condon said.
