Vampirism is the disease/ability described many ways throughout history creating Vampires. The main concept for vampirism can be someone who is drinking the blood of humans or animals, or someone draining the psychic energies of somebody else. Many sources tell of several accompanying attributes like fangs, pale skin, mild to severe allergy to sunlight, silver and garlic. Stories tell of ability to fly, shapeshift, about the need of coffins, immortality and vampires being living dead.

Many of these beliefs are myth or fiction but there lives a society claiming to be real vampires today, and they assert the following:

Vampirism is the disease or abilities related to vampires.
Vampirism can be conducted two ways. Either someone is turned (created by another vampire), or awakened (become one by him/herself in time). When someone shows the symptoms of being sensitive to sunlight, prefering to be awake during the night, having very acute senses, and instincts, somewhat resistant to common illness.. as well as having a thirst/hunger nothing seems to be able to ease, and an easily triggered 'secondary personality' the beast, who is violent, very temperamental, and impatient.

Related to this community, vampirism DOESN'T mean immortality, death when contacting garlic, silver, or sunlight, blood tears, consumption of nothing but blood, sacred symbols are not lethal to- nor feared by vampires, they do show up in mirrors, they dont heal instantly, they are not all pale, not all beautiful, they're not all evil, and they dont live a secluded life away from human society.

To perform cunnilingus while the receiver is on their period, like how a vampire sucks blood. This act, if performed right, can be a very erotic experience and can even get rid of stress and menstrual pain!!
Fred: Yo! Where in da hell were you last night??
Jack: Oh, I was just vampiring Sarah, that`s all.
Fred: Damn yo! Dafuq is wrong with you!?
Jack: Nothing`s wrong with me, it was actually quite pleasurable, and I made her cum too!

Immortal being that subsists on blood. Legend says the Only way to kill a Vampire is with a wooden stake thru the heart but an Original Vampire can Only be killed with white oak.
A Vampire can have kids with a human so then they're 1/2 Vampire, 1/2 human~hybrid. Vampires are out at night & avoid daylight & sunshine.

The vampire legend comes from the the Greek Mythological creature, Empusa, which is a creature that has the upper body of a ghost, a leg of a donkey, and a leg of bronze. Empusa fed on the blood of young men, creating the vampire legend. So therefore, vampires do NOT sparkle. Those are fairies.
Oh, that creature is defiantly a vampire.
