The scene in question is about 3/4ths of the way through ch22 "The Ritual of Chüd". Maybe a bit more. It all happens as the kids are trying to get away after wounding It but they're losing their connection with each other, losing the magic that came from that connection. Then Bev remembers her ass of a father making a big deal about the possibility she was having sex with the boys and she realizes that sex has power to it. It's even called "It" regularly. "They did It!"

So, she takes each in turn, over their protests mostly. They are, after all, all only 11 years old and hardly really ready for such things. But needs must so they all do.

It works and thus she saved all of them. And established the bond that even 27 years was still strong enough to make them all drop whatever their lives had going and return to Derry when called.

Just read the ending of Ch22, that's where this all takes place.

Do we think that his drug problem and booze problem had anything to do with the sceen. I still can not understand what the big whoop is with this. But I will try to find it

I prefer to not speculate about where any particular motivation or inspiration for a scene cones from for a writer. Mainly because no one other than the writer could ever really know.

I do know that among the people who most describe this scene as a reflection of King supposedly "writing while coked out of his gourd" are also the people who dislike the scene for their own personal reasons and usually miss the point behind it as well.

I finished reading the book, yet again, on Wednesday. I have to say that I really had no problems with this scene. For the first time I felt it really had nothing to do with sex, but more to do with the strengthening of their friendship so they could escape the tunnels beneath Derry. They were becoming just children again, and losing that special bond they had been given. Remember, they would never again be all together after this. They would never meet and play as 7 again. Because of the lose of this bond, panic was beginning to overtake them, Eddie could no longer guide them with any hope of escape. Their only chance was to try and recreate that special bond, they had to come together as one if they had any chance of surviving.

Beverly recreated that bond in the only possible way. It wasn't about sex, but love and friendship. The act brought them back together just long enough to escape the dark tunnels.

Even the description that Stephen gives us is not as bad as I thought I remembered it.

This may be off topic, but SK always put some scenes in there. 'The Raft' comes to mind.
Suddenly they ..
Or Nick in 'The Stand' at in the drugstore. Suddenly they..

Uncomfortable, sometimes.. ew

It is Steve just writing whats in his head at the time, I believe. Lucky us, we get to see inside sometime.

The loser chapter was a bonding.

Look. The fact of the matter is...this was a sex scene amongst Children. It was completely unnecessary. Children do not bond through sex. Adults do. Sex is an adult act and it has no place in a scene with children in a sewer. And quite frankly...anyone defending it should really seek help. You were MOVED by a scene depicting a gangbang with kids? How can it get anymore clearer than that?

A gangbang.
Of CHILDREN.

And anyone that tries to claim that children of that age regularly engage in sexual activity is lying. Anyone that tries to use the circumstances of the book to say that they may as well have been adults after what they'd been through should get their heads examined.

They. Were. Still. CHILDREN.

It was a scene of kiddie porn.

And Stephen has the audacity to call Twilight "Tweenage Porn"? Are you serious right now?
