Is Stephen King's IT Scary Or Erotic?

Josh Killoran

Last week theaters were inundated with horror fans looking to get the first look at the remake of Stephen King's It. It was a tremendous success which completely smashed the box office. Since the success of It clowns have been put in the zeitgeist once again. People are being reminded of how creepy clowns are. However, that raises the question why are they creepy? Also, if they are so creepy why does clown porn exist? Obviously someone is wacking off to those painted figments of your nightmares.

Why Clowns Are Scary

One of the people that have spoken up about clowns since It was released is Alexandra Hamlet, she is a well regarded psychologist. Hamlet has a hypothesis that states that people find clowns creepy because of the phenomenon known as the 'uncanny valley'. The 'uncanny valley' is a principle first conceived of in 1970. It states that human replicas that are similar, but not quite right, are disgusting to us. In past studies done on the 'uncanny valley' it's been shown that the most disgusting characters are ones whose facial expressions are hard to read. Now there is a simple reason that this would apply to clowns – the makeup. The gaudy amount of makeup worn by these frightening jesters makes it hard to read their expressions. Many of them have a smile and wide eyes painted on them. Alexandra Hamlet's hypothesis is suggesting that people who are afraid of clowns are actually miscoding excitement which is combined with a natural discomfort due to not being able to read a clown's facial expression(1). Now if this is correct why are clowns erotic for certain folks? Stephen King's latest movie isn't the only time scary clowns have made it into the news. In 2016 there was a wave of terrifying clown sightings, due to a prank that became popular. At that time the tube site xhamster reported that people were searching for clown porn 50% more than before. Also, in the news stories people were worried that the clowns would start sexually assaulting people(2). The question becomes is this arousal related more closely to the clowns or to being afraid? Don't forget, fear is an aphrodisiac.

Why Fear Makes you Horny

There has long been ancient wisdom that fear leads to arousal. This has even been seen in war. War time journalists, such as Chris Hedges, have reported that many soldiers feel a surge of incredible lust after fearing for their lives. Psychological experiments have shown similar things. One experiment had the subjects walk across a dangerous looking suspension bridge. After doing so those involved rated the opposite sex as more attractive than the control group. It is possible that such a reaction to fear evolved in order to make us procreate when our lives are at stake. In addition to that explanation it would increase your chances of surviving a dangerous situation when you form a bond with other people, which could result from being attracted to one another. Now here's the tricky part. Modern people are perfectly safe the vast majority of their lives, but they can be tricked into thinking otherwise. Horror movies, such as It, are perfect examples of this. Horror movies also cause a chemical reaction in your brain. When you're frightened, whether by a movie or a clown, your flight-or-fight response is triggered and the stress hormone is released in your brain. That stress hormone then causes endorphins to also be released. Endorphins just happen to be your body's main pleasure chemical. This makes it very easy to confuse your fight-or-flight response with sexual attraction(3). This would explain the existence of clown porn. It's also an argument for taking your next date to see a clown... or maybe just a horror movie.

Conclusion

Finally an explanation as to why It was so popular, as well as why clown porn exists. People enjoy being scared because, on a chemical level, it's similar to being horny. While clowns make kids cry they make adults want to fuck. Alexandra Hamlet has given us a compelling argument as to why clowns are creepy. We can build off that and use their creepiness as an explanation for why their also erotic. Being afraid triggers your flight-or-flight response which has similar brain chemistry to being all horned up. This must mean that when the circus comes to town and Halloween are fuck-fests.
