This has to be the most unnecessarily sexualized anatomical metaphor my eyes have ever been cursed to read.

Not content with making the simile anatomically incorrect, he also decided to shoehorn a wet vagina into *checks notes* children making a sandcastle. Jesus. Congrats, Mr King, you've won the sub.

This. This is the kind of shit this sub was made for.

What the unnecessary analogy fuck

I'm trying (not) to picture what he means, because when I imagine digging a moat in the sand, it doesn't look like anything you would do with a "vagina".

So I started reading this. Midway through, I look at the sub and think "Does this person know what this sub is for? There's no woman in this story".I did not see that coming. That's outrageous, have my upvote.

I like quite a few of his books but I think I literally can’t remember a single example of a woman or sex scene that wasn’t written weirdly like this!

My very conservative boss who thinks he's smarter than everyone else loves Steven King for how descriptive his writing is. Everyone is entitled to their opinion and I just don't have the heart to tell him that every time he brings it up I think of this subreddit.

This is so out of nowhere. Just some kids innocently making a sand castle and then BAM! VAGINA METAPHOR!

How completely unnecessary

I always hated how he wrote women, he’s actually the reason I found this sub.

besides the vagina thing, this is such poor writing. “the incoming waves kept coming closer and closer” ? this whole excerpt looks unedited

He always does weird shit like this. Like, bro, you don't HAVE to write things like this. Failing to write things like this will not come up in the review of your books. "Well, the new Stephen King novel is great, but there's a distinct lack of unnecessary and creepy comparisons to women's genitals, so I'm gonna need to take a star off."

King can't write women, and ESPECIALLY any aspect of sex consensual or otherwise. Great at drama and horror, but his sexualized prose makes me gag.

Why does he make so many sexual metaphors and similes? In Misery he described CPR as being "raped back to life" or something similar. Gross and hell.

What is up with Stephen King and just NOT getting women's anatomy and needing to sexualize the most non-sexual things.

Ah yes. When I part the quivering labia of a fresh young labiowner, I JAM BOTH HANDS IN THE CENTER AND WRENCH IT OPEN WITH A SHOVELING MOTION AS IF I WERE DIGGING A FUCKING HOLE

At this point, posting King's work is almost cheating

Haven't read the book, but, perhaps this is more character development, Charlies Dad may be having a bit of a dry spell and sexualizing everything... or, is it possible this is [Andy Stitzer?](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IlD08Rh6xa8)

If this was made during the 80s theres a strong chance King was high on coke when he wrote this. It explains some of his weirder shit like that scene in IT, but I haven't read his new work so if he still does stupid shit like this this then...lol he doesn't really have an excuse.

Stephen King's writing advice to us is to use less adjectives, and our advice to him is to please stop being weird about the female body.

I’ve always found Stephen King icky. As a kid I sneaked my parents’ copy of The Shining and was so grossed out by a sex scene in which Jack’s penis shrivelling and dribbling in Wendy’s thigh afterwards is described in excruciating detail. Blech!

Can someone tell me why this person is one of the most celebrated authors of the day? I've read like a dozen of his books and they've all stunk like butthole

I wondered why every time I made a sandcastle, I came. Now it all makes sense.

Lol Stephen! I enjoy a lot of his work, but this is... not it.

Isn't this in his dream and things are deliberately bizarre and Freudian? It's been a long time since I read it, but it feels familiar.

I usually like his writing but this is super weird and gross, like why have that analogy when he's making a sandcastle with a kid. Maybe because he writes so many books he's running out of metaphors haha
