For a long time I wondered what’s really happening behind the Hollywood sex scenes, do they really get steamy(aroused 😛 ), are they really doing it? Guess what? things are not as hot as it seems, not even in the hottest movies. They use a lot of things and techniques so that things are less awkward when they are being filmed, and these things makes the whole thing less hotter.
If you don’t know what it means, these are pubic wigs. People from old times have different reasons for wearing them, but nowadays almost everyone likes to keep it clean down there. So when directors want this, they will wear a fake one. According to The Daily Beast, Kate Winslet wore one in The Reader, and one was used in Love and Other Drugs.
2. Cock Socks
Things tend to seem hottest during the sex climax scenes right? Guess what, they have solution for this as well. The male actors wraps their genitals using these Cock Socks a.k.a. Modesty Pouches. These have several functions like the ones you would guess. But the main point of using it is to cover the private parts during public filming.
3. Flesh-toned undergarments
In most sex scenes people wear body color toned undergarments to avoid awkwardness. By most people I mean, both men and women. But you would think even if it is body tones, you will be able to identify it. But they position their camera in such an angle so that it won’t be obvious to you. But go ahead and rewatch all those movies with steamy sex scenes again and try to pin point the flesh-toned undergarments. Do comment below if you ever notice one!
4. Nipple patch
You know how you have seen women wearing nipple patches in those cabaret and burlesque dancers? Probably you haven’t, because those were the things of 1920’s. But did you know actresses from Hollywood movies still wear those? They use it to cover their nipples while giving the illusion of an entire breast.
5. Prosthetic genitalia
According to The Guardian, silicone pieces were fitted to actors in movies with more racy sex scenes, like Blue is the Warmest Color and Nymphomaniac.
6. Menstrual pads
So all these are okay, but what about when they are doing oral sex scenes? Do they really do it? The answer is no, the women often wears Menstrual pads so that the opposite actors can peacefully act out the oral scenes without being gross about it.
7. Rosewater and glycerin spray
In these sex scenes you would see these people sweating like hell in order to make the scene hot. But is it really sweat? Again, the answer is no, they would just spray rosewater and glycerin spray to make them look sweaty.
So that’s it guys, I really hope you enjoyed reading this. Make sure you share this with your friends!
