More Interviews: Ian Somerhalder, Candice Accola & Joseph MorganReady for O Come, All Ye Faithful (EP409) tonight? Everyone has opinions on the latest turn of events in the Damon and Elena relationship and TV Guide Magazine caught up with Ian Somerhalder to discuss what the sire bond means to the couple’s fledgling romance and the steps they’ll each take to ensure what Elena is experiencing is the real deal:

TV Guide Magazine: Will it be good for the show if Elena and Damon stay together for a while?
Somerhalder: I think it’s good for the story: If Elena is with Damon, this sire bond is always an issue; plus, his brother’s really angry. So until both of them know if it’s true love, they’ve decided they’re not going to sleep together again. There will be more romance and less sex. Damon wants to do the right thing, but losing Elena is not an option. It’s a tough predicament for him.

    Ian: “So until both of them know if it’s true love, they’ve decided they’re
    not going to sleep together again. There will be more romance and less
    sex. Damon wants to do the right thing, but losing Elena is not an
    option.”

    Well the first part that is upsetting.  I get it… but yeah.  I’m thrilled that they are focusing on the romance.  But skipping the Sex is like enjoying the cake but scrapping off the icing.  Heaven forbid I’m ever in this situation, but if I had to be honest, I rather my wife tell me that she slept with another guy then nurtured a relationship and fell in love with one.  I can get past the first, I’d be devastated by the second.  Physical intimacy is dwarfed by emotional intimacy; so if they are going to indulge in the latter, why skip the former?  Which hurts more to accept if they are wrong and the Sire Bond really is influencing her emotions?

    Maybe it is because I’m a guy, we tend to put less weight on the physical stuff.

    Nope I totally agree with you and I’m a woman. I mean they’ve already been there. I’m rather disappointed they’re back tracking on that too. The romance is fine but to completely say no sex is unrealistic at this point. Now Ian’s statement does say “less sex” so that could mean there will still be some just not like rabbits going at it. Bummer. Haha. As for the emotional relationship it was already there before she turned it’s just out in the open now for both of them. I’d like to see just how long they’re going to last without sleeping together given the amount of electricity between them. Keeping yourself under control when you haven’t been with someone is one thing but it’s much harder when you know what you’re missing.

  • Raven

     I told you before ihp less sex for Damon means twice or three times a night.I’m not worried !

  • ihatepeople

    LOL. How could I forget that? I hope you’re right otherwise the man is going to be turning blue. :)

  • Raven

     Let’s concentrate on the losing her is not an option”part.Shall we?

  • From Beginning To End

     I agree with you on every point. To be honest, I’d rather society as a whole start to put less weight on the physical stuff but that’s a different beast.

  • Casby00

    by the wat damon dies in episode 14 ,,,,,,,i hope the writers are thinking in a posible resurection because no damon no show

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/William-Welton/100001408890435 William Welton

     Ain’t that the truth.  That ship already sailed.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/William-Welton/100001408890435 William Welton

     LOL

  • Raven

     Guys tend to put less weight on the physical stuff? Good to hear because I was under the impression that guys loooove the physical stuff and shy away from the emotional.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/William-Welton/100001408890435 William Welton

    Call.  Lets see your hand. Link the post.

     Way to keep your focus on the key facts.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/William-Welton/100001408890435 William Welton

    Of course we love the physical stuff.  We’ll enjoy the physical stuff any day.  We keep our hearts a bit more protected.

  • Raven

    Down memory lane while we are waiting with bated breath for the curtain to fall on TVD for the mid season finale.

    I think Damon figures if this all blows up in his face he doesn’t want to waste this opportunity to show her how much he loves her, rather than have her “wake up” from the “spell” and wonder of he just wanted to bone her. It’s sweet and I’m very much looking forward to seeing Damon’s likely old-fashioned idea of romance.

  • vmplover4ever

     Yes I to would like to know where this info came from

  • vmplover4ever

     But I do scrape of the icing off of my cake…….sometimes lol

  • vmplover4ever

     If there is any truth to that statement I would bet 4 bottles of bourbon  that it would be a spell like the one Bonnie did on herself at the 60′s dance………….55 more minute’s can’t wait….I hope the 17th of Jan get’s here fast…….

  • Raven

    Why am I not so ready for this episode?

  • a_softsong

    Who’s counting.  I say don’t stop.  Damon could handle that.

  • a_softsong

    Why is it that when a couple is having problems the first dumb ass idea they have is to quit having sex?  I say have sex until you’ve worked the problems out and if it’s a negative outcome quit, otherwise it is business as usual.

  • ihatepeople

    I’m guessing it’s speculation based on the photo on Twitter of a bloody faced Damon with a neck gash that is from that ep.

  • ihatepeople

    Because the midseason finale usually has something bad happen. I have a sense of foreboding as well but also excitement.

  • ihatepeople

    IIDK either. Sex is a form of intimacy not just physical but emotional. If you sever that you’re limiting yourself. It would be different if they didn’t already know each other so well but they do. They’ve built that trust up and both know they’re not going to abuse it so I don’t get the big deal.

  • a_softsong

    I agree with you 100 percent.  It is much more of an issue when you have a person emotionally than when you have them physically.  However, it is such a tragedy that sex is the first thing to go when a problems rears it’s head.  How incredibly ancient is that.  

    Sex is the quintessential bond between two people in love or on their way to falling in love .  So now there is doubt that she is really in love, so the first thing that goes is the sex!  To me that is pushing the other person away.   

    They might as well just be platonic friends like they were in the previous seasons.  I hope Vamplena is smarter than that.  Couples don’t let something as important as making love go while trying to figure out their problems.  That would be so wrong for them.

  • Iheartdamon

    This is an episode that I wil probably have the chills and shake like the entire episode. Truthfully, I have done that a lot this season. I’m nervous!!

  • a_softsong

    They have earned their relationship.  It is their right to have sex when they want to.

  • ihatepeople

    Absolutely

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/William-Welton/100001408890435 William Welton

     lol.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/William-Welton/100001408890435 William Welton

     talk about a leap

  • a_softsong

    Did Damon just say the sire bond is broken?

  • Anchy Bujic

    I want more Klaroline spoilers :) <3
