"True Blood" Creator: "I Don't Get" Abstinence in "Twilight"

I know many of you have looked at the Rolling Stone photos of the cast of True Blood and then you just stopped. I don't blame you. You got caught up in the whole Alexander and Stephen and Anna are naked thing and that Alexander doesn't wear a sock on set when he is naked. He is just naked naked for the entire world to see.

So, it may have escaped your attention that the creator of True Blood, Alan Ball, took a huge shot at Twilight. Alan is not a big fan.

"To me, vampires are sex," he says. "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."

I see what he means because vampires are raw and sexual, but to be fair to Twilight I get the feeling that all the couples are having serious vampire sex. It just is not spelled out. You have to read between the lines. Plus, the sex there is in the Twilight books seems vampire-ish. I mean Edward did have to bite a pillow. Weren't there scratches all over the bed too? I can't remember.

I would also suspect there are a lot of high school students who are watching True Blood, so I would not be so quick to tick off a portion of your fan base.
