Michelle Belanger is an American author, singer and prominent advocate of the vampire lifestyle community, a self-described "psychic vampire". Belanger is also involved in BDSM and polyamory lifestyles. She is an advocate for alternative sexuality and kink (as well as safety and responsibility there in) and has spoken at scene events and conventions on topics such as erotic biting, knife play and erotic energy work. In her profiles for such events she notes she has worked as a fetish model and dominatrix. Born intersex, Belanger was surgically altered upon her birth.
