A vampire-loving couple from Italy believes that drinking each other’s blood keeps the love alive.
Denis, 30, met his girlfriend Ilaria, 20, on Facebook more than three years ago when Denis advertised for an assistant for his circus act. The couple has been together ever since touring for their horror show which is currently based in Germany.
The pair acts under the name ‘Mago Denis’ and ‘Pretty Pistol’ and dresses up as vampires and suck each other’s blood. Unlike the vampires shown on TV, Denis does not bite Ilaria’s neck, instead they choose to “suck” blood hygienically.
They use disinfectants, syringes and needles to draw blood from each other’s body. Dennis commented,
Blood is a mythological bodily juice, it means life for us. We drink our blood for the renewal of our love, as a sign of our bond, like married couples wear rings.
The couple said that they drink each other’s blood in real life to show their commitment and love for each other. They further added that consuming each other’s blood is like a wedding ring which seals their bond of love.
Denis revealed that Ilaria drinks more of his blood than he drinks of hers. He said that he feared that drawing too much blood from her would scar her beautiful body. The couple has also got fang implants on their teeth to appear more like vampires. They also dress in Gothic outfits to match their black and red dyed hair.
This couple has gone too far to incorporate “vampirism” in their real lives.
