Sorry to burst your bubble, but filming a sex scene for a movie is one little awkward affair. Even if the final scene is only of 30 seconds, it takes long hours to film it. When you watch a romantic or erotic film, do you ever think that how do the actors bring out passion and romance for a person they are not even romantically connected with? Who else is present on the sets when a bed scene is shot? Is it an exciting and fun thing to do?
These questions keep on popping in our mind, especially after seeing a good romantic movie is ‘how these actors shot the intimate scene’.
Well, here we have all answers to what you’ve always wanted to know about filming sex scenes.
1. The Set Is Cleared To Only Essential Crew Members
Usually, while filming sex scenes, only essential crew members who absolutely have to be onset are present. This skeleton crew typically includes the director, camera operator, assistant camera if necessary, boom operator, and script supervisor. Once the director calls action, if possible, crew members turn their backs to the actors.!
2. The Scenes Are Not That Sexy For The Actors
Because sex scenes are often so technical and crew members are present, filming them is never as erotic as the final product.
Remember Kangana Ranaut saying during the promotion of ‘Rangoon’ that it was difficult to do intimate scenes with Shahid and that they tried very hard to look passionate while kissing and romancing.
3. Molestation in the cover of a steamy scene is also very common in the film industry
Rekha was sexually harassed on the set of her debut film where she was supposed to film a kissing scene. The director let the camera roll for 5 minutes and the male lead vigorously kissed her. Also Read: Casting couch: Radhika Apte, Usha Jadhav reveal dirty secrets & darker side of film industry
4. Some directors prefer sex scenes to be choreographed in detail.
For any scene, blocking is a typical first step. Directors do a walk-through with actors, discussing where they should move during the scene and when. There are, however, times when directors prefer improv during sex scenes. Also Read: Bollywood’s Dirty Secrets Revealed By Celebrities Will Leave You Shocked
