Oh, Jailbait…

So, I was showing Pet some truly awful Twilight tattoos. And, one of the ads was for a ‘co-written’ personalized novel involving vampires. So I bit the bullet and visited the site. It’s one of those semi-personalized books, you enter in your name and some stats, and you hero’s name and stats, and then they’ll print a book (starting at $40) and send it to you, so you can daydream about your fantasy guy.

If you can’t think of a hero’s name for the preview, they suggest a few. Robert Redford, Brad Pitt, Johnny Depp, and Hugh Jackman I could understand. Then I got to a book called “Magic Bound” in the adult romance section. This is what it gave me as suggestion:

Jailbait

Last I checked, Taylor Lautner is not even 18 yet. In face, he’ll be 18 next week. I know the age of consent in Michigan (where he was born) is 16, but damn. And the age of consent in California, which is supposedly where he lives, is 18. That makes him jailbait, even if it’s pandering to the Twimoms.

I hopped over to the teen reads, where they have personalized books for the low price of $25.95, and as expected, there was a vampire one and a werewolf one. And both of them seem to think that teen girls have no imagination, because not only do they suggest “Robert Pattinson, Nick Jonas or Taylor Lautner” but they also give you suggestions for female names “Kristen Stewart, Blake Lively or Dakota Fanning.” And that is where I would expect to find Taylor Lautner, not playing jailbait in the adult’s sections.

I need a shower now.

  1. Yeah, the whole jailbait aspect here is disturbing, but on the plus side all my Christmas shopping is done.

    • I actually considered getting one for my cousin, who turns 22 today. She’s vampire obsessed. However, I met a catch 22: she likes Twilight, but doesn’t read romance novels. So, I either offend her with a romance novel, or I offend her by getting the high school version and implying she’s still in high school. Which would be odd, she was home schooled.

      I settled for just posting a Happy Birthday on her Facebook wall.
