I have not read the Twilight Series yet but am very intrigued– will see the movie. Definitely. I have a crazy fanatic cousin who has all four books and tells me all about the juiciest scenes, on my request of course. So Bella and Edward do make love and Edward is so passionate, he rips pillows. I ask my sister, isn’t that hot?
She says, “No… what a waste of pillows.”
I’ve come to the conclusion my sister is as asexual as Spongebob (unless you people insist he’s like Clay Aiken).
I really love the YA genre… it’s just so much easier to write and read than adult books. I guess it’s because I still have the mentality of a tween/teen girl. Eeeps. You can go as edgy as you want, like Gossip Girl, etc… Unfortunately, teen spreading of STDs and teen pregnancies are on the rise… can it be helped? Sex sells and teens/tweens are sexualized at earlier and earlier ages– Jamie Lynn Spears can have sex and have a baby, but it’s “child” porn when her breastmilking pictures are leaked on the net.
Is it child pornography then to have Gossip Girl characters and Bella, under seventeen, have all this sex on television, the silver screen, and in the books? Have we become too sexualized? Or have we just become hypocritical, prudish in a sense but still have a guilty-pleasure-sorta rush with these edgy YA shows and books?
