i was reading the news headlines you posted, and I need clarification. What does "vamping" mean
A stereotypical vamp was a young woman - a siren - who preyed on men (especially rich ones), using sex appeal to get her way, toying with their feelings, bringing men to their downfall - a heart breaker. With great ease she’d steal another girl’s boyfriend or husband away. When she wasn’t stealing husbands: watch out mothers! She might be the ruin of your college aged son. Her morals were lax. She cared more about the chase than actually having the man.
A vamp was usually portrayed as a lithe woman with dark bobbed hair, bright lipstick, plenty of mascara and eye shadow, maybe some rouge… and very little clothing (short skirts or velvet dresses, very thin stockings). She’d stay out all night and drink, smoke, flirt and swear with no qualms.
Why was she called a vamp? Wicked and beautiful, like a vampire, she usually came out at night and she’d “suck the lifeblood” out of a man before discarding him once she’d had her way.
