InDesiree Akhavan shot a very different lesbian sex scene. Early on in the film, Cameron and Coley tentatively make love for the first time in the back seat of a car. The sex is subtle and nuanced, the result of two young women clumsily figuring out how to please each other.
A Hollywood career in front of the cameras has many perks, but filming forced, awkward sex scenes is certainly not one of them — especially when things don't unfold quite according to plan. From excessive perspiration to agonising injuries, the following actors and their co-stars certainly made some lasting memories. Allison Janney has, most probably, seen it all during her year career in television, film and theatre, but we doubt that anything will surpass one particular moment during the comedy-drama Life During Wartime when a sex scene with her co-star Michael Lerner went south.
I actually went up to [them] and thanked them. That, in itself, is so antifeminist. Women hating on other women is just the problem.
Contrary to how effortless, natural, and erotic they seem on-screen, Hollywood sex scenes take a great deal of thoughtfulness, hard work, and preparation to create. Like any aspect of film or television, there are countless crew members — from those working on casting to camera work to editing — whose combined efforts create the movie magic we see in the final product. Because the subject matter of love scenes is so personal, those involved have a variety of secret tricks and techniques up their sleeves to make scenes convincing for audiences and as comfortable as possible for actors.
So, it turns out the infamous "it's in" scene at the end of the film was even more awkward for those BEHIND the camera, as Mintz-Plasse, aka McLovin, legally needed his mother on set at the time of shooting his first ever sex scene because he was only 17 years old at the time. Lawrence continued her "relatable girl" streak when she discussed her first ever sex scene with Chris Pratt. Turns out she was so unbelievably nervous, she literally got drunk.
It's sort of unethical if you think about it in those terms. As a guy, the first thing you want to do is make sure you're not taking advantage. You don't want the girl to feel like you're getting a free feel or something.
Fact one: People have sex. Fact two: Because sex is a natural human experience, some movie directors opt to include it in their films—unsimulated—for a heightened sense of realism, which means you're looking at real people having real intercourse. Here are 25 movies that broke taboos for just that. This era film features an insane amount of unsimulated sex, including a threesome and an orgy.
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.
