So, What Would Happen If You Really Drank Someone Else’s Blood?
After a year and a half of dating, Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly are officially engaged. The couple shared the news via Instagram on Thursday, with Kelly calling them “two halves of the same soul.”
Fox shared a video of the proposal and the story behind the meaningful location where it happened. “In July of 2020 we sat under this banyan tree. We asked for magic,” the actor wrote. “We were oblivious to the pain we would face together in such a short, frenetic period of time. Unaware of the work and sacrifices the relationship would require from us but intoxicated off of the love. And the karma.”
“Somehow a year and a half later, having walked through hell together, and having laughed more than I ever imagined possible, he asked me to marry him,” she continued. “And just as in every lifetime before this one, and as in every lifetime that will follow it, I said yes.”
Sweet, right? Except, wait. What was that last line of Fox’s post? “…and then we drank each other’s blood.” That took a turn.
It’s not clear if they really drank each other’s blood after getting engaged. And if they did, how much they consumed. (Are we talking a drop? A glass with dinner?) But it should (hopefully) go without saying, no matter how in love you are, no matter how much you enjoy touching tongues in public, you should not drink your partner’s blood. (Or anyone else’s, for that matter.)
There’s not a lot of research on drinking human blood, but ingesting another person’s blood can expose you to blood-borne diseases like hepatitis B, hepatitis C, and HIV. Though, if you’re already intimately involved with someone, you’re likely in such close contact with them that you’d potentially be exposed to these illnesses anyway (say, HIV) depending on how they’re transmitted and any precautions you’re taking against that (such as practicing safe sex).
