A dose of fetish. Good friends. An incomparable muse.
In most societies there are mythical creatures who exist often through peoples imaginations.
Below is an example:
Measuring in at four feet tall and sporting bright red skin, the yara-ma-yha-who may not look like much. But in reality it is one of the most fascinating creatures in all of legendary Australia. The yara-ma-yha-who is a carnivorous creature that lives in the trees and feeds on those unfortunate enough to pass below them. The difference is that the yara-ma-yha-who has one of the strangest methods of consuming its prey in all of folk lore. When a yara-ma-yha-who spots its prey, it will jump down on top of them and suck most of its blood. It uses octopus-like suckers on the ends if its fingers and toes to hold on while it feeds. After the victim is sufficiently weakened, but still alive, from blood loss, the yara-ma-yha-who will swallow them whole. After falling asleep, the yara-ma-yha-who will then regurgitate its victim. Upon waking, they will swallow the victim again. The process of eat-and-regurgitate will continue over and over again until the victim, who is usually alive throughout the entire process, becomes a new yara-ma-yha-who.
