Why Are Females So Obsessed With The Vampires Of ‘Twilight’ & ‘True Blood’?

July 20, 2009

MTV has a great article with a list of reasons why females are so in love with the vampires of ‘Twilight’ & ‘True Blood.

Here’s an excerpt:

“Newsweek spoke with psychologists, authors and gals like you and me to get to the bottom of our desire for the undead and, not surprisingly, the answers were as varied as the fanged-ones we love.

Edward Cullen (above, far left) is practically the perfect boyfriend. He’s a kind-hearted musician. A granite-bodied heartthrob. A chivalrous protector. And a deadly killer capable of stopping your heart in .53 seconds flat. Yet, tweens, grandmothers and every woman in between inexplicably crave this dichotomous character.”

1. They’ve got skills
“It’s fang, penetration, ecstasy,” says Laurell K. Hamilton, bestselling author of the “Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter” series. “Our readers know that vampire sex is somehow going to be the very best sex a woman has ever had.” I guess we’ll have to take her word on that one. Adds “Southern Vampire Mysteries” author Charlaine Harris (whose books were the inspiration for “True Blood”), it’s so enticing because “they’ve generally had centuries to practice.”
