True Blood Gets Sexually Bondage-y


When he invited her over so they could hang it all out, he meant it literally, it turns out.


Well, the scene from True Blood, the new HBO series, occurred as predicted -- non-missionary position sex that included bondage. It's not nearly as wild as I hoped it might be (see image in previous post) but it wasn't nearly as bad as I imagined it could be (see text in previous post). The bondage wasn't overwhelming, and they did manage to show the best imagery on a TV set (a naughty woman is showing a VCR of her tryst with a vampire to her current human trysting partner, to arouse him and get him to tie her up and fuck her like the vampire did, which he does). But the imagery of the "real life" scene just wasn't up to the imagery of the TV scene. Shot from the waist up, basically.

Still, well lit, much more than a blinkie, it was the gal who was tied up, and the bondage, while not exactly stringent, wasn't a total embarrassment (which was what I expected). The really interesting (and good) thing about the scene was that it wasn't Skinamax style sex -- both guys really bang away at the bound woman's butt. Way to go, Alan Ball. The prospects of your version of Bad Girls being tasty is looking better and better.

As the reviewer noted, the sexy woman had to die shortly thereafter. It's like a rule. Makes you wonder how people manage to have kids. One scene of unmarried copulation and you're dead meat, according to horror movie memes. And that's just one of the reasons I think horror movies suck as a genre. Vampire movies, doubly so, of course.

Interesting observation Pat. Perhaps because horror fans are there for the mayhem? They probably figure you can go rent porn for continuous action?

Nahhh. If that were so, you think at least OCCASIONALLY the sex-having gal would survive and the virginal innocents (at least, onscreen viriginal innocents) would get killed. Not the way it works. I think it's more likely an unthinking obedience to the "have unmarried sex and suffer all the evils of the world!" meme. The people who make these things, especially the grade B films, are a LOOOOOOONG way from being rocket scientists, if you know what I mean.
