How Stephen King Feels About The Obsession With IT's Orgy Scene

Written by 

The runaway success of IT at the box office means a lot of people are also taking a look back at the original novel, which has in turn brought focus to one of the biggest changes the movie made from the book.

The novel contains an infamous scene near the end where the character of Beverly, the one girl in the group, has sex with each boy of the Loser's Club, one after another. The movie skips over the scene, for fairly obvious reasons, but that hasn't stopped people from talking about it again now that IT is back in the news. While Stephen King has spoken about the scene before, he added some thoughts when he was recently asked about it once again. He's a bit surprised that this one scene is the one that gets people excited considering all the terrible things that happen. According to King...

To it I'd just add that it's fascinating to me that there has been so much comment about that single sex scene and so little about the multiple child murders. That must mean something, but I'm not sure what.

It's a valid point that there seems to be something of an imbalance from the audience, as IT's one sex scene seems to upset so many people, while nobody really talks about the number of children who end up dead.
