DND Questions on vampire mating

Postby Iheartbooks » Mon Jul 10, 2006 11:11 pm

Um okay I have this question that's been bugging me for a while now. I don't mean to sound rude or vulgar by asking this - I'm just honestley curious. If a vampire has unsafe sex with a human (because Stephenie said vampires can have sex), could that human get pregnant? More specifically - could Edward get Bella pregnant? A male vampire would have to um..have some...for lack of a better word...'emission' to have sex, so is getting a human pregnant a possiblity? And if this has been answered could someone possibly post a link? Sorry for the weird and possibly awkward topic, I just have this strange all-consuming curiousity that drives me insane about the most unimportant things.

I think we have a couple of things in play here:

1) vampire with sex with a human would be kind of a logistical problem if nothing else. I mean Edward has a hard enough time not "breaking Bella" in general and Bella practically passes out on passionate kisses. I don't think sex is possible just on the level of potential physical damage and who wants to make love with an unconcious person?

2) If vampire don't emit sweat, I'd find it odd if they emitted other things such as sperm. If they emit anything, it seems to be venom. I'd say impregnation by venom is not likely. Plus going back to it getting into the blood stream (if they in fact emit it) might prove deadly.

So, my main thought is a vampire impreganting a human is not really likely.

I totally understand the whole breaking thing, but I don't get the venom idea. If venom replaced sperm wouldn't it also replace sweat or possibly mucus?

yeah. this conversation could get gross. my friend and i actually hypothesized about this a bit. if female vampires cant ovulate and become pregnant, it seems logical that male vampires wouldnt be able to produce sperm - since sperm are another type of living organism. so i dont know how that ties into how vampires are able to have sex. maybe it is just one of those things that dosnt make sense in the real world, but we allow it in fiction for the benefit of a better read.

Forgive me if this comes across as vulgar, but aspects of this topic have confused me too. Stephenie did say that vampires can have sex, but my first thought to that was: can they really? Don't males need blood flow to...well, for lack of a better word, perform?

It makes sense that a vampire wouldn't be able to impregnate a human, but then again, they wouldn't really be able to have sex in the first place anyway, due to humans being too fragile in comparison.

Well from what I have read that Stephenie explained...vampires are sort of stuck, you know...never ageing again...so a female will no longer ovulate, hence can't get pregnant, and a male vampire will no longer produce sperm...therefore he could not get anybody pregnant.

If I am not mistaken, vampires do have blood in their body...therefore there shouldn't be a problem for the males to ...perform.

What they shouldn't be able to do, since they are in a sense frozen in time is produce sperm, or the females to ovulate.

I think...would have to get Stephenie to give these theories a go!

If male vampires can't produce sperm, would it just be like a semen substance without sperm? That's the closest I can think of because Stephenie said they can have sex and you need something to have sex. I really don't get what she means by sex then if neither of them can orgasm.... (Once again, sorry for this strange topic)

Whoops double post sorry. But sealakewhirl, I doubt Stephenie would just add something into her story that makes no sense just to make it better. She doesn't seem like that type of author - I've asked her a bunch of questions and she always has a sensible, reasonable answer already planned out. I'm pretty sure she wouldn't add something into her story without planning it out first.

i think its just one of the aspects of the book that don't make sense, but we accept it for the purpose of a good story. I'm pretty sure that we all get an A+ in science and sex ed, though.

I've gone around and around about this in my head and I have come up with two answers to the whole sex question that help get me through. One - Vampires aren't real! Their whole existance is against the laws of nature. Why can't I just accept that if they can walk around and move and think and yet have no beating heart...they why can't I just accept the fact that they can - and do - have sex and leave it at that?

Two - Forgive me if this seems a bit vulgar, but I have a dirty mind. Edward's skin is described as being hard like stone. If the skin on his arm is hard....wouldn't he be hard in other places, too?

Just an idea.
