you're saying it's because of the wang

I distinctly recall reading a King line (in a Nightmares and Dreamscapes story, I think?) about a Black woman's nipples tasting like honey flecked with pepper and even when I was too young to have any idea what I was talking about I confidently called bullshit on that one.

I assume a lot of this (like the infamous IT child orgy) was a product of King hammering out novels while coked up to the eyeballs for most of the eighties, lot of "This sounded great when I was fucked up last night, oh well I'll just go with it" vibe to it. Be interesting to see if he still does this in his clean years.

Being out of his nut all the time has to have had an effect but a lot of his most “cocainey” books are from after he got sober

My challop is that the scene in it is really not as bad as everybody says — or, to immediately start walking this back lol, it is obv very badly handled & the gender dynamic is particularly awful, I get why it’s bewildering that it was published — I don’t tho agree with the notion that a scene like this in a book like this is inherently beyond the pale. Thematically and tonally it is not out of step with the rest of the book

This was an easy choice.

ok there was this terrible scene in this terrible book (not by steven king) where there’s a fully clothed lady, and she’s facing a life-size satanic crucifix statue with much hard one, and the statue toppled over onto the lady and took her virginity? it is possible that i am too innocent & sheltered but the geometry of this seems improbable, even with satan guiding the dong. this isn’t a thing, right? i don’t yet have access to enough life-size satanic crucifix statues to see for myself.

This thread was reminding me last night of some of the erotic moments of James Herbert, definitely a horror dude thing

Feel like whatever the hell happens in "Dedication" ought to count in this poll.

I remember some very unfortunate masturbation content in The Talisman, but I couldnt say if it was a King chapter or a Peter Straub chapter.

Write-in vote for my favourite King sex scene is when the mom in Pet Seminary edges the dad with a sponge in the bathtub, gives him the orgasm of his life, he sputters "where'd you learn to do that", she replies "girl scouts"

Do they have to wear dog collars in a pet seminary?
