Yeah, I like how Stephenie did it. It was perfect.
Of course I would have liked a bit more, but since kids are reading these books I know it had to be like that. For Stephenie too, I'm sure.
I bet there's millions of fanfictions out there to fill in the gaps for anyone who wants to read it.

I liked the way she set the honeymoon too. Very romantic. I enjoyed how she touched of the nerves Bella had and also added in humor making it less tense.

I thought that although it was tasteful, their first time was cut off really quickly. Instead of fade to black, it just kinda blanked out. I liked their steamy vamp night better, because I felt that although there was no "gory details" the innuendo was there and it made it extra steamy. ;)

TBH I'm glad the scenes weren't graphic. I don't think I'd ever see Edward and Bella in the same way again.
Mind you, I'm still adjusting to their physical relationship as it was written.

I thought Stephenie would just have one big special moment... but to get 6 or 7 of those special moment threw me completely.

But Meyer had to keep in mind the younger fans. She kept it tasteful and left a good deal to the imagination. LOL, I still can't get over Edward biting pillows and breaking headboards. I can't help but LOL when I think about it.

And now thanks to Bella, my childhood addiction to eggs has returned.

^^What a perfect description of the "fade to black" I'll admit, my first reaction was, "That's it!" But SM made up for it a number of times during the rest of the book.

OK, so not that i've been thinking a whole lot about this.. But I was just curious. Since Edward has no blood in his body.. How could he.. Perform in bed.. If you get my drift at all. (Vampire Viagra?) :shock:
Why didn't I just walk away?
Oh Right, Because i'm an idiot!

I think that Stephenie did an excellent job with the honeymoon. She didn't need to write it. She lets you imagine what's going on and keeps it pg-13. She could have added a few more details without it becoming graphic though.

He doesn't have blood, but he does have venom, which I'm guessing works the same way with...stuff like that. Anyway, I loved the honeymoon scenes, but I have to say that I really enjoyed the night after Bella was a vampire better! And I ate eggs for a week after reading Breaking Dawn.

Yep, that Venom stuff really works miracles.

Me being only thirteen, I was kinda glad that Stephenie didn't go too in depth. I'm not a fan of lemons. Probably won't be for a while.
