The author receives a lot of backlash for how much sex he puts in the books. He points out how silly this is by saying that when he has a scene in a book about someone being brutally murdered with an axe, no one is offended, but sex, people send angry letters about, and that sex has brought people a lot more pleasure in the history of mankind than brutal murders have.
