Twillight saga Love lust and virginityJune 26, 2010 No Comments
When you are in love, you’d find that your lover is all you live for.
Head over heels in love. Logic is the first thing that vanishes.
Is it love or lust?
Would you fight the physical lust to stay pure? Keep your virginity and hold out for something amazing when you are finally wed to each other?
Sounds old fashioned?
While most teenage guys seem too eager to have sex with their other half, forever 17 year old Edward Cullen had values that may be termed by Victorian by some. Actually, Edward, a vampire was born during the Victorian era, brought up with these values which had him holding his lust in check, for the sake of his bella. Not just blood lust, but no matter how intimate they were, he held his iron resolve not to go all the way.
He wanted to keep Bella virtuous.
In a world where some people are laughed at for their virginity, the Twillight saga speaks otherwise. The romantic leads, Edward and Bella, through Twillight, Eclipse and New Moon, though madly in love, never went all the way.. (uh oh.. does that count as an Eclipse movie spoiler or a New Moon spoiler?)
While most romance tales have the lovers jumping on each other, Twillight is a movie where abstinence is a virtue the romantic hero holds on to.
Eclipse Movie spoiler: In the bitter cold, Edward, being a vampire was unable to protect Bella from the cold. His skin was like ice. His love rival, Jake, a werewolf was the opposite. Jake’s skin’s like fire.I
Out in the snow, Bella Swan, the human girl caught between her vampire lover and werewolf best friend could very well freeze to death. That leads to the tent scene where Jake comes to her rescue.
The stars, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner describe the tent scene as intense. This is what Jake can give Bella which Edward cannot. Warmth. What she needed to survive that wintry night in the open. He had to use his body to keep hers warm. His love rival’s biggest nightmare.
Would Jake seduce Bella to go all the way? Would she lose her virginity to his love rival?
Lust or love?
If you love someone, you are willing to hold out for that person.
If you are in lust, who cares?
Is that your stand?
Is virginity to be treasured in this modern context?
Interestingly, both Rob and Kristen are said to believe in abstinence.Tags: abstinence, bella swan, eclipse movie, edward cullen, kristen stewart, love, lust, new moon movie, rob pattinson, twillight movies, twillight saga, virginityromance, Romance Movies
