- “It's been going on for centuries. Humans hire vampires to feed off them. They get off on the rush.”

Vampire Brothels were establishments in which humans paid vampires to drink their blood. While the humans who engaged in this sort of activity got off on the adrenaline rush, the vampires not only got money, but also food without the inconvenience of leaving behind corpses that might attract anti-vampire activity. However, in some cases, people would end up dying accidentally, or get killed by vampires pretending to play by the rules.
In Sunnydale, a group of bottom feeder vampires gathered at a place owned by Whip, a male vampire. In late 2000, Riley Finn became a regular at Whip's place, though the facility was burned down by Buffy Summers in retribution, while the vampires would later attack the Slayer in revenge, only to be eliminated. Rupert Giles admitted to having heard of them, but hadn't seen such a thing since his "Ripper days."
