For Kim Head, 26, who works at Jacques Torres Chocolate in TriBeCa, the series had the opposite appeal. “I like the innocence of it,” she said. “I like that I feel like I’m 16 again. I feel like I’m re-virginized.”
New York Times, Nov. 16, 2012: "A Farewell to Fangs, Fur and Fandom" [^]

The average "Twilight" movie-fan is, I read, much younger than Ms. Head. I've never read any of the books, or seen any of the movies, but I certainly wish I could undergo re-virginization, as long as it was not permanent.

No more Hostess Twinkies, and now: this. What has happened to my "homeland," the U$A, where I was bored ?

yrs, Bill
