Blood is life. Your body has 9-12 pints of blood in it. Blood provides your body with oxygen, nutrients, and regulates your temperature. When you lose more than a pint, your body starts to compensate with higher heartbeat and lower temp. Some folks faint at the mere sight of blood—causing the “vasovagal response” blood pressure drop that occurs with rapid anxiety.
For others though, it gets the blood pumping: It’s Taboo, dangerous, sexy, what about blood pathogens? What about holding someone’s life in your hands?
There are a few of ways to play in this area: knives, scalpels, needles. We will talk about—and show—some of the ways you can get to that blood and play with it… plus some basic safety.
