My first circus, I was 4 years old. Not thrilled about the awful music, the smells or the huge elephants, but the minute the clown showed up and looked my way--I went running and screaming and no one could pull me back into the tent again!
Clowns are too happy, unnaturally happy. Their features are exaggerated and the human beneath can almost be discerned. His mouth is not as big as the one drawn on, his eyes are not as big as they are drawn on. We see an incongruity in what they pretend to be and what they are. There may be somewhere in our human DNA a bullshit button when it comes to genuine facial expressions.
How about the real-life John Wayne Gacy? The part-time clown/full-time serial killer?
Need anymore confirmation that clowns are evil? Check this out....
A friend dared me to add to my dark anthology erotica series a story about sex with a clown. I did it, and I think I managed to make it feasible and disturbing. Here's a little sample from inside the funhouse:
In her helpless position over the table, wrists in the cuffs under the painful red light, her round buttocks in the air, she presented him with a fantasy so surreal he began to lose his inhibitions and imagine people seeing the clown in his costume leaned over a helplessly chained woman, thrusting his pelvis against her and how strangely arousing that would be. He was used to getting attention for being silly or even scary, but never as a sexual being. The contrast of sex demon and clown aroused his mind even more as he guided himself into her wet cleft.
On that note, hopefully, I managed to change your mind about clowns.
I remember seeing IT and I couldn't sit on the toilet for days.ReplyDelete
Dear Gods! Sex with a clown!?! I'd die. I have an irrational fear of clowns and since I've had it forever and am older than dirt, nothing will ever change my mind. *shudder*ReplyDelete
@A Daft Scots Lass: Exactly. I am right with you with that comment.ReplyDelete
IT freaked me out...and still may I haven't seen it since I was a kid.
Clown Sex... I can't even...
You did not change my opinion of clowns... I just have this image of the male clown coming to climax and then a squeaky bicycle horn going off....
clowns represent something that is cute and fuzzy... well something like that. to entertain us into some false hope that we are all suppose to be happy. clowns are to show us that they can be happy even when life seltzer water bottle sprayed in the face... you can have a big old smile. now at some point they wanted their day to attack.ReplyDelete
varry odd but some clowns can be creepy .. but erotic that is even creepyer warr309ReplyDelete
There is no such thing as a funny clown.... they are all damn creepy!!ReplyDelete
And don't forget "Killer Clowns From Outer Space" - that movie had my nephew afraid of clowns for many years.ReplyDelete
Killer Clowns From Outer Space was total immersion! Haha. This clown in my story has a background and it's told from his POV. He's sort of a wounded soldier who retired to be a clown because he was mute. He leads a lonely life and meets up with the belly dancer just hired by the carnival. I'm admittedly still not comfortable around them. Even Skittles my clown doll stares at me and I find myself having to turn him away a little so I don't fully see his expression.ReplyDelete
The Dickies … once Punk Rock's carefree funny men now turned middle-aged men … wrote & performed the theme to KKFOS & are also world renowned, at least in Punkdom, for their rendition of the Banana Splits theme. More psychosexually, though, they've a song If Stuart Could Talk, about a talking male sexual organ, which entails the use of certain phallic puppetry when they play live. I didn't find any good enough copies of it to hyperlink this song to, so, happy searching.ReplyDelete
Perhaps those among your readership who do feel the most unnerves around clowns are keying-in to the morphic fields left behind by human scarifice in Mesoamerican cultures. The costumed, face-painted priests going about their usual business of dispatching lives to their mythical gods in finery (I'm using that term ironically, Sharon) reminiscent of clowns. mayhaps there's more to clowns & sex & death than we realise. As follows, there's a good link for just such Mayan references. Peace ~ (•8-o
I was ok with clowns until Pennywise showed up. The book and movie creep me out. The book is so much better.ReplyDelete
Another thing that is spooky about them is you just don't know who or what is behind all that paint.

I don't mind looking at clowns but I always hated when they try to interact with you. As long as they are away from me it's cool but there are some creepy clowns in films that prob made people just cringe at the sight of them.ReplyDelete
The clown dilemma. I don't like Skittles because he never blinks. Hee hee. Warr, that castle is amazing! SD7--yeah, I agree. If one approaches me I instinctively step back.ReplyDelete

Clowns are sexy in my eyes. Especially us Haunt Clowns. It's my job to scare people, and I love it. ;)ReplyDelete
There is something creepy behind the smile.ReplyDelete
I find clowns about as scary as that plastic little doll you like to bring to life every October. Which is not at all. Say hi to W.C. Dale for me. Then kick him in the head.ReplyDelete
