wireandroses, here.

i had a revelation during biology about why vampires would NOT be as sexy as authors seem to think they are. we were learning about the urinary system and how different environments lead to excreting ammonia in different forms depending on how much water they have to save, and how animals like vampire bats can change this. most of the time they retain as much water as possible, but when they're drinking blood, they have to get the excess water out fast so they can get as much nutrition in as possible. so the warm trickle down the neck? it's not blood, it's pee. vampires really don't sound so sexy when you realize they'd be wetting their pants while they sucked your neck...
