We are absolutely thrilled today to be working in conjunction with numerous sites in an effort to answer this question…
Can a person of the male gender like these books and subsequently this movie and still keep his man card?
The answer? Instead of hearing it from me, I give you the men of the Twilight fandom:
Seth, Stephenie Meyer’s Webmaster and brother, explains…
When browsing blogs and exploring Twilight series fansites, it is easy for a male fan to think that he is alone in the world of Twi-hards.
But, it just isn’t true. I constantly receive emails at stepheniemeyer.com from male fans who wonder why the fandom is so highly dominated by females. I think that the reason is the powerful love story which is part of almost every page of the books. While there is no reason why a guy can’t enjoy a love story, us "manly men" (who by definition cannot admit to enjoying love stories) have other reasons to love the Twilight series. Stephenie’s ability to describe action scenes is rivaled only by her amazing descriptions of the setting. And the books are filled with both. Some of my favorite scenes include the battle in Eclipse (and the training) and the Volterra encounter in New Moon. My favorite characters are almost exclusively werewolves. I like Jacob’s style, and Seth Clearwater is a personal favorite.
The bottom line is that these books are true "page-turners." They are nearly impossible to put down, and everybody can enjoy that… no matter if they have two X chromosomes or not.

And last but certainly not least…the inspiration behind this testosterone love fest. While in Portland on the set of Twilight the Movie I had the opportunity to meet Scott Murray, the talented producer who brought us the breathtaking Comic Con promo trailer and gave us our first real glimpse into the magic of this film.
So you see, Twilight isn’t just for teenage girls, stay at home moms, or women of any age who are dreaming of their Edward to come and sweep them away… Its a book that has mass appeal, a book that spans stereotypical genre and encompasses those things in life we hold fundemental no matter what our gender. Love, freedom, pain, jealousy, fear, joy, anger, lust, but most of all…choice.
