Scientific Analysis of Eroticism in Harry Potter vs. Twilight

Surprisingly, it does appear that Harry Potter knows how to get a girl warmed up before the big event better than Twilight. It might have something to do with the fact that the characters in Harry Potter were eleven when the series began, and Bella (whore!) was 17, but maybe I’m just splitting hairs.

      It could have something to do with the fact that Harry Potter is about actual meaningful subject matter and has an actual plot and a cast of well developed characters with complex yet understandable motivations, and Twilight is just a book about a hot guy and a girl who smells good becoming obsessed with eachother for no real reason and then spending the rest of the series froliking in fields and drooling all over eachother…just a theory.

      Twilight is a romance/fantasy series. The romance genre and any sub-genres are all made for ROMANCE. Harry Potter is strictly a fantasy series, not made for romance, but for FANTASY.

      Amen, drea.

      In the Harry Potter series, the characters start having sexual relations at seventeen. Just because the series started at a younger age, it is no different from Bella being seventeen. Just saying.

        There is a difference. In Harry Potter, the characters have known each other for years before kissing, not a few months. It’s not the age that is being compared, it’s the speed the relationship is going at. Personally, as a HP fan that dislikes Twilight, I see nothing wrong with Bella kissing Edward in the first book because it is a romance novel! It’s not like they kissed on the first day they met! And they waited 3 books before doing the deed, after she was an adult (right? I’m not very well educated on the Twilight series)
        And since HP is not primarily a romance, the kissing is just a bonus thing, it’s not what fans are expecting to see in the book.
        Sorry if my post is kinda long, I just like talking (…or typing?)

      I thought Harry and Ginny kissed in Half Blood Prince…?
