Love At First...Bite?

Having not read the Twilight book series by Stephenie Meyer, but having a girlfriend and daughter who were clearly (and unashamedly ?) obsessed by this teeny-bopper phenomenon__ I went to the midnight premiere of Twilight to see what all the hype (HYSTERIA!) was about.

No matter what your take on the books or the movie was – one thing I think we all can agree on…Vampires are hot! There is nothing like the story of forbidden love: the building of sexual tension, the temptation of giving in to one’s greatest desires, the thought of being taken into total submission… I am getting al worked up just typing about it!

There is a price to be paid for such pleasure (no, I don’t mean the $9.75 ticket price), but the ultimate price…your mortality, your total being. (Hey, don’t most women risk it all for love anyway?)

In reality, the thought of someone loving us so completely that he will forgo his every instinct and be completely satisfied with just lying by our side and watching us sleep___ come on!
