Genital guards — cloth or plastic, sometimes even menstrual p — are attached to the woman with latex glue so she can be seen from different angles without showing off more than she wants to. Men wear modesty bags — a sack with a drawstring, basically.
Sort of like they do for fight scenes. They focus on things other than crotches and butts… hands, arms, necks, legs, feet. Again, making it look suggestive without being X-rated. In the U. They also have props to make the actors more comfortable and reduce the likelihood of an unwanted frame. I work in film, so I can shed some light on this actually happens.
When a script calls for nudity or simulated sex, there is an additional contractual discussion about what can and cannot be shown, the way in which the scene will be filmed, and many other aspects they basically go through everything line by line, shot by shot, which is why you want a good agent and lawyer. Unlike the stories you may hear about the seventies, or some indie films, Hollywood is very strict about these scenes, and there are no surprises. A lot of the guidelines are regulated by the guilds, such as having bathrobes standing by, etc. Everything you can get away with at the R level or below can be faked.
NC formerly X rating is the kiss of death, because most theaters refuse to screen NC films. If the scene is showing a lot, like Game of Thrones, the actors are probably naked, and the man will wear a small skin colored sock. The set is deated a closed set while filming, which restricts the set to only essential personnel. A few other people may be on set, and then others may be watching from the monitor depending on the scene, like the production deer. The Assistant Director AD team would lock the set up, despite the grips trying to get a peek.
In between every take, the wardrobe team rushes onto the set with bathrobes for the actors. Then for the actual act they are touching naked on screen, and it is very awkward but most actors will tell you it is not romantic in the slightest. I seriously doubt many people would enjoy being naked in front of a dozen people, starting and stopping every few minutes for a few hours while people run out periodically to adjust a light.
Every situation is different and I am sure some actors are comfortable crossing the lines of professionalism, but this is how the vast majority of major films handle these scenes. My mentor also told me about the day she was walking across a backlot and a grip came running out of a sound stage in his boxer shorts.
Apparently, the actress said, if I have to take my pants off then everyone watching does too. So the entire crew removed their pants to make her more comfortable while filming. I know at least for men they wear a little string tie baggie thing on their genitals to cover that part up. Sort of like a dice bag I believe.
Intimacy coordinators are becoming much more popular on sets! HBO has them for any of their shows that have sex scenes. The coordinators job is a mix between a counselor and a stunt coordinator — they chat with the actors and directors and set firm boundaries of what each person is comfortable filming.
Then they plan out the scene very much like you would plan a fight scene — where the hands are going, what movements will happen etc. Once filming, the coordinator stays to make sure that no boundaries get crossed, that the actors are happy and thus reducing the chance of an accusation of sexual assault. Basically they look after everyone working on a sex scene and keep them happy and safe! Most of them come from dance and stunt coordinating backgrounds. There is nothing sexy about the sex scenes during the filming, just as you would never eat the burgers in a food commercial.
In a typical scene where you show a close up of kissing, the actors are probably wearing clothes from the waist down. Second fun fact: in Pulp Fiction, the dude raping Ving Rhames wore a Crown Royal bag because it was what they had on set. They hit their marks, they say their lines, they emote, they do it all over again for coverage. Usually the actors are professional and use some mouthwash before a kissing scene, although some intentionally eat onions or something to fuck with their co-stars. Can you imagine being turned on while a dozen people around you are fiddling with lights and arguing over whether a dropped power strip should be picked up by the grip or the electric?
The people who can do that have an entirely different skill set, and are in a different business. I was a producer for a short film with several naked scenes. Very graphic scenes as well. The script called for seing male genitalia, etc. We solved it with both actors being covered with a pouch of some sorts. Basically their private parts were covered, so there is no possibility of penetration. It was a combo of tape, and some type of bandage. We also had great actors that either had worked with the director ly, or we knew as coworkers.
There were also very limited people on set, basically the cam operator, director, actors, and make up she was female, and the female actress asked that she was there. In Nymphomaniac interestingly, most scenes were a combo of porn performers, and actors, and the exposed genitalia was CGI from the porn performers. So when it comes to sex scenes, everything begins with actors consent of course and you have Sex Scene Coordinators who orchestrate a lot of that paperwork and so forth. Level 2 — Actors only remove the clothing that is necessary to imply explicit nudity in the shot.
Its a waist up shot, actors are clothed from the waist down in whatever they find comfortable. Level 3 — Nude coloured underwear. Usually small briefs for a man, and a thong with a small bra or even pasties for a woman. Useful for shots that a far away or for obscured actors behind patterned glass or light fabrics.
Level 4 — Only the bits get covered. Additionally, there is an entire branch of direction called intimacy choreography that works with these types of scenes. Anything from a kiss to a rape scene can be choreographed and carefully directed to ensure the actors are safe, comfortable, and look good on camera. One of the last indie films I did called for a make out scene, all of which was delicately choreographed, including hand placement, angling, kissing, eye contact, and more.
