The accompanying article, titled "The Joy of Vampire Sex," includes choice quotes from creator Alan Ball:
To me, vampires are sex ... I don't get a vampire story about abstinence. I'm 53. I don't care about high school students. I find them irritating and uninformed.
And "Vampire Bill" Moyer:
If we go from a base level, vampires create a hole in the neck where there wasn't one before. It's a de-virginization — breaking the hymen, creating blood and then drinking the virginal blood. And there's something sharp, the fang, which is probing and penetrating and moving into it. So that's pretty sexy. I think that makes vampires attractive ... Plus, Robert Pattinson is just hot, right?OK TB fans, eat it up...
