    Almost 12 year old nephew relates to "Voreaphillia"
    auntiemame1949 posted:
    My almost 12 year old nephew recently shared his secret, that he is a Vor. Since I never heard of it before, he explained it to me and I was left speechless and worried. He is a very bright , only-child in a very disruptive home with contentious parents, whom he does not trust. He said that being a vor means having a desire to be consumed or to consume another person. There is the predator and the prey and he relates to the prey. He describes himself as feeling very isolated and does not have any friends. We live in different states and I don't want him to feel that he is weird or odd since he has felt that way for awhile. I won't tell his parents because I think that their way of dealing is by shaming. This sounds like a fetish but because of his age he is starting puberty and sexual feelings but with this "vor" I am concerned that his sexual development may be affected in a negative manner. If anyone his heard of this or has information please share since there is so little out there.
