It’s been, let’s see, almost three months since I’ve gotten laid. I’ve done a little making out, but in general, most of my sexual satisfaction these days is from watching “True Blood” every Sunday on HBO. It’s been a big year for vampires, but an even bigger one for vampire sex, which has got everyone from teenagers and Midwestern moms, to geek fan boys and, um, twentysomething bloggers obsessed with how they have it (“True Blood”) and how they resist having it (in “Twilight”). In both of these examples, the human is female and the vampire is male. That’s given some the idea that the vampire sex is bad for women because it fetishizes the meshing of sex, violence, and romance. To that I say, whatevs. If this fantasy is bad for women, well, then it’s good for me. Keep reading »
Last’s night episode of “True Blood” was incredible, over-the-top, and possibly the best of the season, even without any Sookie/Bill sexy time. My eight favorite moments, after the jump. Keep reading »
Keep this hush-hush. A few years ago, we wanted grillz. Not overly iced-out ones, but some fear-evoking metal fangs to go against our girly-girl exterior. We came to our senses, though, realizing that grillz would be one fashion faux pas we’d never be able to live down. But we recently found this Fangs Necklace, and not only does it satisfy our grillz fascination, but it also makes us feel a little like Sookie Stackhouse in “True Blood” — you know, because she doesn’t have fangs of her own.

Last night’s episode of “True Blood” was fantastic — we finally found out whether or not Lafayette had been turned into a vampire, Sookie was attacked by some weird creature that left her with gnarly claw marks down her back, and a romance blossomed between new vampire Jessica and adorable local gentleman, Hoyt. Mary Anne also had another icky orgy party, we got to see Tara’s new boyfriend’s rockin’ abs, and we fully began to appreciate Eric the Vampire’s David Beckham-esque makeover. Even though there weren’t any Sookie/Bill sex scenes, this was still the best episode of Season 2. More gushing, and some questions, after the jump… Keep reading »
Last night, the second season of “True Blood” premiered and I could not have been more excited. I find it to be one of the sexiest shows on television, a true guilty pleasure, and the over-the-top acting and ridiculous plot lines make it even more sinfully delicious. And the center of the show are the characters of Sookie Stackhouse and vampire Bill Compton, portrayed by real life couple Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer. The two met and fell in love on the set, a fact which has injected a real, tangible heat to many of their scenes. For some this is not entirely enjoyable. Keep reading »
“True Blood” is finally back, y’all and I have to say it’s been a looong six months. I re-watched most of season one recently, which didn’t help my desire to see my favorite vampire and waitress steam up the small screen. So I decided to read the first Sookie Stackhouse novel Dead Until Dark by Charlaine Harris, but that didn’t help either. I feel sorry for anyone who is a fan of this show, but hasn’t read the books because they’re much more sexual and Bill Compton is more carnal. If you thought the f**k fest in the dirt from season one was stimulating, you haven’t read anything yet. Sookie and Bill have way more sex scenes in the novels, and when I read Bill saying, “May I enter you?” and the time when they climaxed together when he bit her…Woo! I thought I was right there. (And yes, both of my hands are on my keyboard.) My sex life is virtually non-existent right now. So I figure I can read the novels during the week to hold me over until Sunday when new “True Blood” episodes air on HBO at 9 pm. And for those of you that haven’t watched or read about Sookie and Bill’s relationship, please realize it’s not all about sex, but is a great story too.
Oh yeah, and check out this weekend’s TV schedule after the jump. Keep reading »
In the latest issue of New York, Emma Rosenblum describes a scene from the new season of “True Blood” (which premieres this Sunday):
“Bill, the brooding village vampire, beds Sookie, his mortal girlfriend, after they’ve had an argument. It’s steamy stuff—makeup sex is still makeup sex, even when one party isn’t technically living. Mid-act, Bill bites Sookie’s neck with his fangs in an orgasmic frenzy, then kisses her, smearing her own red blood down her cheeks and onto her lips.”
Set your DVR, ladies. Keep reading »
Back in the day, summer television was all repeats and the only reason to watch was to finally see that episode of “Melrose Place” your VCR messed up recording. Luckily, the dark ages are over and summer nights are now filled with good shows. Okay, so it may not classify as “good,” but “I’m A Celebrity, Get Me Out Of Here” has your back Mondays through Thursdays. Meanwhile, two of our favorite shows, “Weeds” and “True Blood” are both starting up this week. And you’ll want to catch the premiere of “Top Chef Masters,” which is kind of like regular “Top Chef” mixed with “Iron Chef.” After the jump, your television sked for the week. Keep reading »
Soft-core porn used to be reserved for pay-per-view channels like Skin-imax, but now it’s all over the boob tube! And it’s not Lifetime movie-esque storylines with wives in floral print dresses waiting for their husbands to feel them up so, so gently you can hardly tell what they’re doing is a sex act. Lucky for me and all you pervs out there, TV has gotten so meaty. Yeah, baby, we like it raw! Here are the top shows to watch, if you want to see some gratuitous soft-core sex scenes… Keep reading »
The entire Frisky office is presently working on the “Twilight” series because we’re trying to escape the holidays (if only for a few hours a week) and we love sexy, beautiful men, even if they’re imaginary. I’m also planning on reading the Sookie Stackhouse books now that the first season of “True Blood” is done. I didn’t want to spoil the TV series for myself, so now that I know the plot of the first book, “Dead Until Dawn,” I can’t wait to actually read it and the rest of the series in preparation for season two. If you’re not interested in these vampire series, then now is the perfect time to reread the Shopaholic series because the movie “Confessions of a Shopaholic” premieres early next year. Other great series’ to consider? All of Augusten Burrough’s memoirs, the “Dexter” book series (on which the TV series is based), and, yeah, Harry Potter.
