Everything but the fangs: 'True Blood' trio bares all on 'Rolling Stone' cover

In the Sept. 2 issue of Rolling Stone, on stands Weds, True Blood stars Anna Paquin, Alexander Skarsgard and Stephen Moyer appear nude on the cover, entangled and drenched with blood (or is that chocolate syrup?).

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...
