Behind the scenes: How sex scenes are filmed in movies

Contrary to how erotic, effortless, and natural sex scenes seem on-screen, they take a lot of preparations, thoughtfulness, and hard work.

We reveal to you some of the secrets behind the sex scenes you see in movies. Filming sex scenes is no turn-on. There are big cameras and crew members that come with them. The sex scene is a performance with a stranger for a director who is judging every whimper and caress. It is tense and awkward for the actors – it is the antithesis of hot.

Since the subject matter of sex scenes is so personal, people involved have many techniques and tricks up their sleeves to make those scenes comfortable for actors and convincing for people watching. Scroll down to read about some of them. 

Stimulated sex and nudity are outlined in detail during contract negotiations

Actors sign a legal contract that outlines the nudity detail before you see them naked on TV. The nudity clause in the contract includes all the specifics of how the sex scenes will be filmed, who will be there, and what the actors will be asked to do. 

Actors usually aren’t naked

Have you ever watched actors in great passion and wondered how naked they really are? Well, the wardrobe department is the actors’ best friend when it comes to shooting a sex scene. They’re usually wearing coverings and modesty patches while filming sex scenes. Unless the sex scene is extremely explicit, they are wearing some type of flesh-colored undergarment covering their privates.

The garment is important to prevent any contact between the actors. The man wraps his privates in a cloth that is shaped like a sock, to make sure all his private areas are covered.

Sex scenes are sometimes tightly choreographed 

The team precisely choreographs the sex scenes. They plan every move the actors will make before they start filming. The director decides how spontaneous or choreographed sex scenes will be. The directors openly talk to the actors about where the camera will be, what will be visible, and what the actions will be. And they do stick to the script.

Sex scenes can take a long time to film

They are often brief onscreen, but they take hours to shoot, whether it is due to the director’s notes, lighting changes, or makeup touch-ups.

Glycerin or rosewater spray is used to get that sweaty look

The goal of every sex scene is to make the sex look as natural and real as possible. They accomplish that by adding such small details. The team spritzes the actors with glycerin or rosewater spray between takes. This looks like a real sweat to the camera. 

A closed set is provided for sex scenes

While filming sex scenes, only the essential crew members that need to be onset for the scene are present. Otherwise, hundreds of crew members shoot the other scenes. This crew includes the director, script supervisor, camera operator, and boom operator. The closed set helps actors feel more relaxed and comfortable.

The sex scenes aren’t hot for the actors

Let’s see what actors say about these ‘hot’ scenes:

“Filming a sex scene is not a sensual or pleasurable environment. It’s really hot – not in a steamy, sexual way. It’s just sweaty and not very comfortable”. 

– Dakota Johnson

“It’s always pretty awkward when you have to take your pants off in front of a crew and other actors. During the scene it’s fine, you don’t feel uncomfortable, but as soon as it’s cut and you’re standing around in your underwear, that’s when it’s weird and uncomfortable.” 

– Liam Hemsworth

“There is that revoltingly embarrassing moment when you have to take your clothes off in front of strangers. But as with all things in life, the second you stop making it about you and you make it about everyone else, it just gets, dare I say, fun.” 

– Anne Hathaway

“It’s hard to have a sex scene, period. It doesn’t matter if it’s a friend, a male, a female. You’re with 100-something crew members, lighting you, repositioning you. There’s no comfort whatsoever.” 

– Mila Kunis

Okay, so sometimes you just need to turn yourself on fast. We don’t always have time to prime our bodies for a long, sensual masturbation session.

How many times does your body ask you for an immediate orgasm? The answer is many times.  And girl, you should know that your body should never be denied its desires. Yes, we all prefer face masks, oils, steamy novels, a vibrator, but it is what it is.

We will help you to learn how to turn yourself on fast! However, that doesn’t mean that it will be less enjoyable or fun than a full-on masturbating session. 

Get undressed in front of a mirror

Nothing is sexier than you! You just need to turn yourself on by seeing how hot you are. Also, you can lounge around in your hot lingerie when you are alone at home. Put on your sexiest, laciest piece, and enjoy your time. 

Activate your senses to turn yourself on 

Your senses are directly related to your libido, duh. You should eat some aphrodisiacs (like nuts or chocolate), play some music that makes you feel like a sex goddess, set the mood by adjusting the lighting right, put some sensual sheets like silk, and spritz the perfume that makes you horny.

Create a sexual fantasy 

We know that sex scenes on TV are great, and porn is even better. But you will turn yourself on quickly if you create your sexual fantasy because it is yours! And you decide what happens there. The mental images of your sexual fantasy will get you where you want to be fast! 

Focus on your breath to turn yourself on fast 

By focusing on your breath, you will easily get out of your head. Close your eyes and breathe slowly and deeply. You can also try different breathing patterns – like, holding your breath in for five seconds and see what feels best for you.

Compile a stash of erotic clips, images, and/or stories

You should have a private file on your phone – compiling many things that will turn you on immediately. Put on your earbuds and listen to hot stories or sounds while you scroll through pictures and clips that do it for you.

Take a hot shower 

Okay, we all have time for a shower, right? So, when you are already wet, slippery, and soupy, glide your fingers over your most sensitive areas. Use your fingers, washcloth, or sponge to turn yourself on. You do not even have to masturbate yet, but focus on touching yourself sensitively. Caress your thighs, chest, nipples, neck, and all those small erogenous zones you don’t pay much attention to when you masturbate.

What are the things men (don’t) want in bed?

If you are just a little curious about what men may crave in the bedroom, we get you. Men don’t communicate a lot, so we are here to the rescue!

Okay, yes, we highly recommend you to initiate a sex talk because great communication means great sex. However, if you also want to figure out what you want to talk about before talking about it, well, we got you!

Stop licking their face – men hate that

According to men, this is something just for the screens. You are not sexy and you won’t turn him on. 

Men want to take it out of the bedroom

They love variety. So, you need to keep it exciting by exploring new areas to have sex, such as the laundry room, kitchen table, in the car, or even outside. Playing in new places can lead to more fun. Also, you get the opportunity to role-play.

Missionary is not the only one sex position

Sisters, don’t be lazy! Explore, there are many exciting sex positions you should try! 

Sex positions that will satisfy all your cravings

Initiate sex sometimes

Many men feel like they always have to initiate sex with their partners, and that annoys them. Men like to feel attractive and desired, so you should consider seducing your partner. If you initiate sex, you will send the message to your partner that you want him, and that will boost his confidence.

Squeeze his penis firmly when he is close to orgasm

If you are giving him a blow job, when you see that he is coming to the end, place your hand over the base of his penis (just below the bladder). Press firmly and rub back and forth as you massage the area. This will intensify things.

Move the hand and mouth in the opposite direction

It seems logical to move the hand and mouth in the same motion, but obviously, the logic is not sexy. Most men will feel better if you move your mouth and hand in the opposite direction – when the hand goes up, the mouth moves down, so that they constantly meet in the middle.

Men want you to actively participate

To actively participate you should grind your hips, meeting his thrusts with your thrusts, and flex your PC muscles. These things you can do from whatever position. Also, use your hands to squeeze his arms and pull his body closer to yours. Don’t forget to use your lips to explore his body. These moves will let him know that you are into the action.

They want to be dominated 

Of course, they want to dominate you, but from time to time men want to do nothing at all. They want you to have control. If you are new to this, you can start by telling him he cannot touch, talk, or move unless he is told to. Tell your partner that you will punish him if he doesn’t follow your directions or disobeys. Boss him around and tell him how you want to be touched. Directing his every move will make him squirm. Don’t forget to remind him that you are in control.

What do women hate in bed?

For all the men out there not trying hard enough in bed, here are the things you are doing horribly wrong. Women hate some things in bed.

It has been said that sex is like pizza: even bad pizza is better than no pizza at all. But this is not right! No one is supposed to constantly endure things they hate in bed! 

Finding out what your partner hates in bed takes time, and most people have to gain trust before they will discuss their intimate desires. However, these are some things that most women hate in bed.

Women hate when you skip foreplay

Okay, guys, 10 seconds of kissing is not foreplay! No, neither is a short fumble around her breasts. Wait, save your eye rolls and groans. Women don’t ask for an hour-long, hot massage (not that they mind!). It takes time for women to warm up and for their bodies to respond to yours. It takes more for them to get aroused, regardless of their age. Simply sticking it in looks amateur at best and selfish at worst. You will make your partner feel more objectified than wanted. 

Trying to last for hours

Tell us, do you want a masseur massaging one spot for half an hour? Well, that is how women feel when they have a marathon intercourse session. If you are still going after 12 minutes (which according to many studies is the perfect length of time for a session) check if your partner is still connecting.

Women hate when you insist on them to orgasm 

Sometimes it is clear she is not going to orgasm. Just read the room! We don’t say that the reason is you; there can be many reasons that have nothing to do with you. Don’t get offended if she cannot. And more importantly, don’t insist!

Giving her the silent treatment

You can be a hot guy who is amazing with his hands and everything, but if you are silent as a log, you are not as good as you think you are. Your partner will feel like you are bored having sex with her. Can you dance with no music? Well, that is like having sex with a mute. Maybe dirty talk is not your thing, but it won’t kill you if you give her a moan or two. Women want to know they are pleasing you, and that you are still breathing.

Women hate when you refuse to use condoms

IT seems like everyone is having sex without condoms nowadays. It is kind of scary. We are all for casual sex, but not for casually contracting an STD. Don’t try to talk her out if your partner insists that you wear a condom. It is rude and inconsiderate! It does not matter if she is on the pill or you just got tested. Women are more physiologically susceptible to STDs than men, and not to mention the risk of unwanted pregnancy. We know that sex feels better without a condom, but life feels better without herpes. Also, do not try to get it in raw just for the beginning. Last we checked – chlamydia does not adhere to a ten-second rule.
