Synopsis: A podcast by The Straits Times that examines all the ins and outs of pop culture, be it Asian entertainment or Hollywood. Today, the PopVultures get into the steamy topic of sex. Sex on screen can be hot, hilarious and horrifying but what goes into the work behind the scenes?
Contrary to how effortless, natural, and erotic they can seem on-screen, Hollywood sex scenes take a great deal of thoughtfulness, hard work, and preparation to create. And since the subject matter of love scenes is so personal, those involved have a variety of tricks and techniques up their sleeves to make scenes convincing for audiences and as comfortable as possible for actors. If you're seeing a naked actor on screen, it's important to know that legal contracts that outlined the details of the nudity were signed prior to the actor accepting the role.
On closer examination, though, the products and their names were mysterious. So what do we need to make sure? Rodis wants both to shield sensitive body parts and to make their contours undetectable.
To hear most actors tell it, filming sex scenes is no turn-on. There are big cameras, of course, and big crew members that come with them. Speak to the filmmakers, though, and you get a different take.
The latest star to discuss the cons and… cons of filming a sex scene is Nicole Kidman. In the new issue of Interview Magazine, she talks about the fine line between acting and taking on a vulnerable character, and actually getting hurt. Most actors are like that.
Even the most macho of movies has been known to make room for a love scene, whether it's a steamy makeout session or full-on getting it on. Directors might as well face it, they're addicted to love, even though including sex or nudity can complicate dreams of box office glory. They have to figure out how to depict romance in a way that's authentic enough to get the audience's hearts pounding, while keeping their movie in line with the notoriously prudish Motion Picture Association of America's MPAA mysterious guidelines.

Guest Posts. Most filmmakers know the pain of finding their favorite scenes on the cutting room floor, but how about the satisfaction of snipping your least favorite scenes? Upon arrival, she hires two locals to take her to the volcano, and the trio set off on the journey of a lifetime. After making it through the rough cut phase, my co-director Phillips and I felt the sexual relationship between Jane and Dusty felt off-topic and forced.
It was January ofin the thick of the MeToo movement; the series was set to return in a month, including Franco playing a pair of twins. Meade asked HBO to hire a crew member whose job, specifically, would be to oversee the planning, preparation, and performance of sex scenes, much like a stunt coordinator. Her request had a ripple effect: Soon after The Deuce brought in intimacy coordinator Alicia Rodis, HBO implemented a policy that would require an intimacy coordinator on all programming that features adult content.
For decades, Hollywood has used stunt coordinators and experts behind the scenes to ensure a battle scene is accurate, believable and safe. Consent, harassment and assault were now mainstream topics, and naturally made their way to set. Am I okay to touch you there? After all this, the actors are required to reconnect with the director to understand the emotional journey of a scene: The timing, rhythm and duration of acts like a kiss.
