Countess Dracula: Georgina Condon, of Brisbane, Australia, tells the Daily Mail that she is a real life vampire. The 38 year-old claims she suffers from solar dermatitis and gets blisters from UV light.

Condon gets blood from her boyfriend. ''I met him at a Bloodlust Ball in Brisbane, which is like our Christmas party where we dress to the nines in ball gowns and costumes. He sacrifices to give me what I want from time to time. He believes in monogamy so it's a form of intimacy. It's not about the gore, it can be a very sensual thing. There is a science to it, it's like when you're hanging for a really good red steak.''
