  1. lol I would no way in HELL switch spots with Anita, there’s got to be some sort of std floating around. And to the person who said at least she has a REASON for having sex…those reasons were just an excuse for her to boink whoever the hell she wants. Anita couldn’t kill a fly without her gang of hard men helping her.

      Exactly! By herself she’s not nearly as “all powerful”. She’s not the strong one. It’s all her f-buddies that are.

    GO ANITA! Lets prove that being Sex Postive and Kicking Bad Guy ASS go hand in hand! May all the haters sleep alone!

    • Melissa says:

      Or maybe all the haters can sleep with their ONE partner that they’re very happy with and not be passed around the supernatural world like a doorknob that everyone wants to turn. -_____-

    I’d risk an std from the 1700’s for a go with Jean-Claude 😉 Hahaha.

    I’m a little confused by those who keep saying Anita has no power without her men. Anita was slaying vampires long before her men came along. Aside from her physical abilities she has unique skills and a very significant amount of power. She could raise an entire army of the undead or take away a Master vampire’s control of his people. Even Jean-Claude has admitted to being threatened by the amount of power she has. I also don’t care for the way the series turned out, but that doesn’t mean that I’ve forgotten what Anita has always been capable of outside of the sex. I don’t know Jace’s character so I don’t know that Anita’s power and strength alone would be enough to handle him, but to imply that Anita is weak without her triumvirate is inaccurate.
    It’s a little comical that this thread has went from who should be alpha to debates over Anita’s fictional sex life. Good entertainment though.

    • Jess says:

      This thread just proves how much of a joke the character of Anita Blake has become!!! A character who once defeated a bad guy by ‘distracting him with a BJ’ so one of her men could sneak up on him and kill him.

  5. Nix says:

    WTF? I dislike Anita, but Jace is not Alpha.

  6. clara says:

    Yay Jace won 🙂 Gotta love him <3

    Wait I love Anita Blake. That chick is bad ass. So what she has to have sex to survive and what not. She also can’t catch an std due to all the strains of lycanthropy in her blood that would kill off and strain of a std. Fact of the matter is she handle’s her own, with or without her men. Most of the time its the men that need her to save and protect them not other way around. Aside from that I do believe that Jace does not out-match her. They are both fast and both know how to handle weapons and have been trained in combat. If you think about it, Jace only deals with knives, swords and hand to hand combat. Anita on other hand has all that and guns. As fast as Jace is I just don’t think he’s faster then a bullet.

    Seriously people, calling Anita a slutpuppy! I don’t think so. Someones sex drive is their own business. Has nothing to do with the person as a whole. It’s one aspect of their life. Since EVERYONE’S definition of sex varies, who knows what is consider proper, It’s up to that person. Secondly Anita doesn’t relie on her man friends for everything. She helps them as much as they help her. HHMM sounds like what friends do for each other. Her sex life was not what was at play here, it was her as a whole. So if you can’t give a legitimate account of what she could do. DON’T!!! If you don’t like her, don’t read the books then. Most of these posts are of hating but you still read the books….. Grab a clue.Give LKH and Anita their due.
