True Blood: Vampire Sex Is Twisted

Last night's episode had so much sex. Motel sex, workplace cunnilingus, and straight-up hatefucking.

To be honest, the episode seemed a little slow and a little boring — right until the end, when Bill hatefucked Lorena and twisted her head all the way around. He literally messed with her head after she figuratively messed with his. This was one of the most brutal, shocking and disgusting scenes ever on TV, and while it's supposed to say something about what's going on inside the mind of gentle Bill Compton, or what's not going on in his mind — He's going out of his mind — you also have to wonder how it felt to write that scene. Shudder.

  • Tara and Franklin's hot motel sex was hot. It's obvious that the dude is bad news, but since terrible things keep happening to Tara, she deserves some mind-numbing orgasms.
  • Speaking of orgasms: Pam ate Estonian last night! I made an mp3 of her saying, "Fangtasia, this better be good," in case you want that.

What's the general consensus among the Jezebels on True Blood books vs. show?

I just got into True Blood this summer - watched Seasons 1 and 2 and then immediately read books 1 and 2. The books were light, fluffy, a quick and mildly entertaining summer read. But I found the show so much more enjoyable overall. Do the books get better and more involved? Should I wait until season 3 ends before reading book 3? I'm just not convinced the books are worth it yet, probably because I'm already so invested in the characters as they appear on the show.
