There’s just something really sexy about Stefan and Elena. It really doesn’t have to do with sex itself. It’s like a romantic kind of sexy
not like the raunchiness that Damon and Elena have. It’s in the simple things, like the way that Elena’s hand always find Stefan’s face in the midst of a kiss. The subtle way he holds her wrist and lightly strokes her hand with his thumb. It’s the sensuality of the way Stefan runs his fingertips along her skin. There’s chemistry, sparks and sexuality just in their simple touch. I’ll take that over shirt ripping, dry humps on the couch any day.
I was thinking about this recently. Stefan and Elena are so much more physical than Damon and Elena because they touch each other at every opportunity. Whether they are just sitting/lying together somewhere, whether they are talking about something non-related, hell, even when they’re arguing over something, they end up touching. And it’s not a sexual touch (although they certainly have that side come out to play from time-to-time) but an emotional touch that is so adhesive and so promising and you forget sometimes that they are two separate people because when they’re together they are often seemingly one entity. Whereas Damon and Elena, when not getting it on, are often physically quite distant with each other. When they disagree, they are far apart; there’s often a physical and spacial tension between them that results from emotional distance.
