And I really don't like how far they go to not call the werewolves hermaphrodites. I mean it's blatantly obvious that that's what the author wanted to write about and yet it's never directly addressed they go so far as to include males in the culture when basic evolutionary logic would suggest that if the females had evolved the ability to procreate indipendantly then the strictly male werewolves would have been slowly breed out of the species. a few things I disliked about this series in particular. the whole obsession with sex is just off putting. the whole vampire power set is rediculous. It makes every confrontation with the sex - slave weres laughable. the wolves have no advantage or defence and therefore there's no point pretending and yet everyone does. And worst of all; it's not exciting in the least when absolutely everything turns on the werewolves. pain, anger, any negative emotion just gets them hard and it's disturbing. there's a scene in the second book when one if them is getting tortured and she just can't stop organisming. I mean WTF. that is not even masochism it's just wrong. the fact that complete negative stimulus overload can cause sexual satisfaction is horror worthy. It's too close to the idea of rape idolizing.
