Do periods make vampires hungry… or horny?

What is it about Vampires? Ever since the myth of a woman bathing in virgin’s blood to stay young became an infamous story we have been obsessed with blood-suckers. Is it the primal animalism that draws them to want to bite us? Is it the phallic nature of fangs and blood-sucking? Or is it the thrill of danger, the sexual animalism, the line between fear and excitement?

Erika’s latest release on XConfessions is a film based on a question by one of her anonymous fans: If vampires were real, could they smell your period, and would it make them hungry…. or horny?

In Can Vampires Smell My Period?, Misha Cross is waiting for something, but what? Looking out of her window into the blue of the night, a shadow passes our POV. Who, or what, is it?

Aroused by something, someone, Misha gets into bed and starts to touch herself, blood from her period visible on her fingers and on her sheets. After she falls asleep, we see Parker Marx, pale skinned, dark eyes looking hungrily at her. Will he bite her? Or will he be drawn to do something else…

You can watch interviews with Misha and Parker, and see the other films they’ve shot with Erika Lust on XConfessions. Can you spot all the references to cult vampire films in the short? Enjoy, night-crawlers!

Watch now on XConfessions!
