Many people believe that the adventure or explosion action scenes are the toughest of a movie. But reality shows that the new hot scene requires the most careful staging and preparation. Because, most actors are definitely not related, but they still have to show their emotions and body movements to the most realistic. This requires specific techniques from an experienced post-production team.
Sensitive parts are always covered
Unless the director intentionally “flaunts” on purpose, the actor’s sensitive parts are carefully shielded in every scene. Sarah Basta – the costume curator of the series Big Love belongs to HBO and G.L.O.W. Netflix – tells Cosmopolitan that she always carries protective gear in her kit including an actor’s private sock and a “snatch patch” is a feminine patch, both have skin color. That is why even if you look at “eye-opening”, the viewer will not see anything.

The “pitching of the tent” is still happening
Although it is just acting, it does not mean that the actors’ bodies will not react to each other. For amateurs, the boy “erect” situation sometimes appears. This is of course a dilemma for both. However, in many cases, the actress feels rejected when … not hot enough for her actor to be excited.

Even the most experienced actors feel shy
No matter how many hot scenes you shoot, they are always a difficult experience. Star Game Of Thrones Natalie Dormer shared that she did not feel comfortable when filming these scenes. They had to align the camera angle and redo that moment many times.

It’s all a matter of timing and technology. Meanwhile, Rosamund Pike is also shy about filming a hot scene with Neil Patrick Harris in Gone Girl (2014) when both … married and faced each other in a state of only underwear.

Filming a hot scene on the right “month” is a pain
When filming hit on the “period” arrival date, the actresses had to regularly go to the toilet to change the dressing. However, the “snatch patch” reserved for mentioned above has a very strong adhesion. So every detach and attach is a formidable punishment for any actor.

The scene choreographer is always present at the “scene”
Like choreography or action, hot scenes also need a real choreography. Hot scene expert Tricia Brouk said her job was to outline the scene in general. After that, she will try rehearsing with another colleague and then describe it to actors and directors. Tricia then taught the scene individually to each participant.

Stunt actors are also used
Not only action scenes but also hot scenes need stuntmen. They specialize in making scenes where the character’s face cannot be seen or turned from behind. A stuntman said it took him five or six hours to complete a hot scene that left his knees skinned, bruised and bandaged for days.

Body makeup is a creative trick
The reason is that the full body makeup will act as a second layer of skin or even as an outfit to give actors more confidence. Makeup expert Brigette Myre Sharpe from the series True Blood on HBO shared that she prefers to use aerosols over makeup.

Fake fur – an important item
For hygiene reasons, many people choose to shave sensitive parts. However, this makes it difficult for them to be covered in the film. So they used “merkin” – an 18th century prostitute underwear that is shaped like a pubic hair. Sharpe told Cosmo that her job was not only to comfort the actors, but to make them as sexy as possible.

Fake sweat is also used of course
For a hot scene to become real and burning, sweat is definitely indispensable. However, the actors obviously didn’t sweat that much during filming. According to makeup artist Rocio Jahanbakhsh, they use Vaselin or baby oil mixed with water to create these fake sweat.

Accidents are still unavoidable
No matter how careful the preparations are, an accident is always inevitable. The “cock sock” or “snatch patch” can still fall out at any time during the process of rubbing while shooting. At these times, it’s hard for actors to stop because it will ruin the whole scene and have to start over. Therefore, many people choose to try to continue or improvise as much as possible.
