Twilight Inspires Bizarre AND Dangerous Trend

Back when hickeys were the biggest problem, all we had to worry about was teenagers wearing turtlenecks at weather-inappropriate times, but now we've got a whole new set of problems!

Teenagers have started a new trend, obviously heavily influenced by the Twilight phenomenon, where they will bite each other and then lick or suck the blood.

Here's what the medical advisor to Consumers Union, Dr. Orly Avitzur, had to say about this trend:

“These are kids who think they are real vampires."

More from Dr. Avitzur:

“If you think about it, there is such glamorization in those teen vampire movies, they make it seem so sexy and appealing and intriguing. It’s all mixed up with passion.”

Dr. Avitzur has referenced vampire-themed websites, where teens discuss their obsession. Here's what a whacked-out user from one of these sites, GothicGirl10, has said about her thirst for her boyfriend's blood:

“Having that thick, warm copper-tasting blood in my mouth is the best thing I can think of! Sometimes my boyfriend lets me feed off him. I let him feed off me as well.”

Medical experts have expressed concern about the risk of teens transferring blood-borne diseases to each other, including hepatitis and HIV, as well as the risk of infection from the bite wounds.

Teenagers out there - Please don't bite each other and suck each others' blood.

It's incredibly upsetting that the request above has to even exist, but this is NOT a cool trend. At all.

What do U think of this troubling Twilight-inspired trend?

    We are living in ““` some FUCKED up times!!! and it's only getting worse!! Parents need to lock up their teens who do this shit!! YO!

    What the hell? That is really worrying. And how can it taste good? I hate the taste of blood in my mouth when I bite my lip. And how disgusting to have someone elses blood! Ugh, I barfed a little! This vampire-thing has really gotten out of hand, I mean it really could be dangerous to your health. And who would be blamed if someone really got HIV this way? Who would have to cough up a huge settlement? Stephenie Meyer? Bram Stroker? Or even Count Dracula himself? This has to end. Please.

    There's a Bret Easton Ellis short story that's about this. It's pretty weird that the surreal shit he makes up about how fucked up people are actually comes true…



  6. 6

    Seriously the people that are doing this are total weirdos. They have no imagination and 0 self steem.



  7. 7

    This is old news. That being said. Ugh. My cousin was like that when "Queen of the Damned" first came out.



  8. 8

    Gross :P
    I'm a teenager and there is NO WAY I am ever doing that.
    It's just nasty



  9. 9

    I understand their concern. Literally Sucking someone's blood and swallowing it is just too freaky for me. However, hickeys were soooo much fun to get and give!!!



  10. 10

    I don' Think its a "Twilight Trend", in twilight any sissy vamp suck any blood, pleaaasEE!



  11. 11

    As a woman who has gone through the teenage years as well as a mother of 4 children (including 4 who currently are or have been teenagers) I feel qualified to make this statement:
    Adolescence should be considered a mental illness!
    Every one of us who is over the age of 20 was absolutely bat shit crazy between the ages of 12 and 19 (and you know it's true)!

    I did super dumb as a teean but things as crazy as drinking each others blood just boggles the mind!



  12. 12

    fucking people are fucking stupid.



  13. 13

    I'm sorry but that is seriously disgusting. I seriously can not believe that this "trend" is for real, not only is it not healthy but it is absolutely nauseating. Just reading this made my stomach turn, to think kids/people "think" they are vampires and to lick/drink blood… ugh thats just gross. I can't even handle when I bite my lip on accident and I start to bleed.. the taste of blood is gross.

    This is actually really disturbing… just my opinion.



  14. 14

    Yeha its pretty fucking retarded if you ask me.If your not able to know hollywood movie fantasy,from real reality then you shuldnt go to the movies.



  15. 15

    each generation we are slipping farther away from reality -_-

    Aaah… well… it's just nature and it's natural selection.
    Before you know it those idiots are all extinct.



  17. 17

    Ive read books on this subject and its actually been around for a while.



  18. 18

    Ew. But, yeah, that's been going on in the Goth/BDSM communities for ages.

    Nitpicky here but didn't the "good" vampires go out of their way to NOT drink blood in Twatlight?



  19. 19

    Natural selection in action…the twihards will all die of AIDS and our genepool will be clean again. Yay!



  20. 20

    way to break the story perez!



  21. 21

    I have to come to the conclusion that I don't hate the twilight films and their shitty actors. I hate the stupid people who scream and yell over it, and how the praise, cry and hurt others ears and give 60,000 to get close the "dialog readers".
    I don't blame a shitty movie for teenagers stupidity.



  22. 22

    I totally get the fantasy: the neck has always been sexy in general, and, the element of danger can be a turn on too, but to actually drink the blood??? Yuck! Shit soup this world is nuts!



  23. 23

    This sounds like a True Blood trend, not a Twilight trend. All the vamps get off this way on True Blood. Please change the "Edward" pic to an "Eric the Viking" pic as soon as possible. And people, there are no vampires. Drinking others blood is just gross and sad.



  24. 24

    It's just another fluid (and energy) exchange, and a way to have the one you love inside you, to devour and become one with them (at least it's symbolic of that, I believe.) But a word of caution, Don't suck anyone's blood, that you wouldn't be willing to DIE for!♥♥♥



  25. 25

    The scariest part is this generation of retards will run our country one day….



  26. 26

    hilarious
    darwin in effect
    the sooner these idiots get rid of each other the better



  27. 27

    what the fuck! this is just plain stupid. do these kids know of the diseases out there you can get from that!? stupid Twilight.



  28. 28

    Re: Baldkitten – I was thinking the same thing. There are actually quite a few different vampire based series/movies out an about, all of which are less-than-glorifying in the way of Twilight. I think it was Erik the Viking that made a comment either to or about Rob P. in regards to how the Twilight Vamps are sissies. (Something along that line.)



  29. 29

    Actually, looking at this picture again, you hit it pretty spot on. R-Patz's expression actually fits the post. 1 point for Mario!



  30. 30

    Just goes to show how much better, and healthier Harry Potter is.



  31. 31

    HAHAHA Yes! Kids they lie, drink up all the bloodz you want you shall start to sparkle in no time don't let them fool you!!!



  32. 32

    EWWWWW! That's disgusting! Never would I do that for a million years never ever, ever, ever! These kids need to get some psychiatric help.



  33. 33

    that's sick. seriously, mental.



  34. 34

    He is gay!

  35. Hun says – reply to this


    35

    sick!



  36. 36

    Natural selection at its best. Hopefully they will get HIV and die. Whatever happened to just sucking a cock?! Maybe next they can go out an bite animals like they do in Twilight. Then get mauled by a bear.



  37. 37

    I like how Twilight is getting the entire blame on this situation like there isn't any other shows or movies about vampires. I don't remember people in Twilight feeding off eachother for pleasure. However in True Blood they do all the time. And the fact that these kids are doing this to me seems like 1.they aren't mature enough to watch any of these shows to distinguish seeing they don't know what is real and what isn't and 2.where are the parents?



  38. 38

    this is so…..can´t even find a word for it.. SICK that is what it is. So if there will be a werewolf trend will teens stop shaving then? hairy leggs,armpits and everything?



  39. 39

    Hahahahahaha, I actually find that hilarious! Damn, these twi-hards are getting crazier and crazier! They need to realise their precious franchise is a word of FICTION for God's sake! How far does this twilight shit have to go before it crashes? Not very, I hope. It doesn't seem to be doing much good for anyone! Damn, the insanity of these girls…



  40. 40

    I don't think this is twilight- this trend started long before then, maybe its just getting worse. When i was in highschool people did this, and that was when all we had was ann rice stories. The ones i knew who did this, did grow out f it, thankfully.



  41. 41

    Another reason to just ban Twilight



  42. 42

    You can use the words "whacked out" with regards to GothicGirl10, Mario. She is seriously disturbed if she enjoys the taste of blood, and living in Fantasyland if she thinks for one second that she will not be at risk for hepatitis or HIV. She needs professional help.



  43. 43

    Re: Turned40 – Adolescence should be considered a mental illness! ……… Well said !!!! Amen to that!!!!



  44. 44

    This isn't a Twilight Theme Mario. This has been going on for years and years. It's not just teenagers either. It's people who identify with vampires. In other words, they believe that they NEED to feed off of blood to survive. Please start doing some research before you go off writing inaccurate information.



  45. 45

    Re: Dusss – ROFL



  46. 46

    well in wilight they dont really glorify it.. i mean they never show someone biting into someone. true blood however…. i havent watched vampire dairies so i dnt no if they do in that show.



  47. 47

    This is so embarrassing for the people who read the books before this shiz blew up and actually liked them. I'm a teenager. I used to like Twilight. This insanity has made it disgusting. :/



  48. 48

    I have a friend who has completely deluded himself into thinking he's a vampire–and he's 19. I've tried so hard to help him, but he just shuts me out. He bites himself constantly. Such a sad and scary trend.



  49. 49

    fuck that's creepy



  50. 50

    Thats for emos who want to be like edward all cool, but they are freaks
