Although it’s not unusual for sex to be left out of adolescent, or children’s books, the fact that Harry Potter grew up through the different books, makes it even more strange. Many have the theory that because the characters were pure and genuinely good characters, that sex was never added to the books. Sex would somehow ruin their purity, even though crushes, attractions, and ultimately sex, are a part of life, and sometimes a part of adolescence. Although sex may have also ruined the likability of the Harry Potter books, it would’ve made it more realistic.
The author of the Harry Potter books, J.K. Rowling’s has recently stated that she will be releasing 12 new Harry Potter stories leading up towards Christmas. One story will be released each day, all the way up until Christmas day. Of course, many are excited about the recent news of upcoming Harry Potter tales.
