It's hard to go near the internet right now without reading about ~ that ~ shower scene in Netflix's Sex/Life. If you don't know what we're talking about (sorry, what?), fast forward to 19 minutes and 50 seconds into episode three, when we're given a flash of a truly colossal penis.
The scene has already gone viral on TikTok, with people filming and sharing their reactions to the clip, and it's hardly surprising that there are lots of questions people want answered.
Mainly: Is that actually Brad's (actor Adam Demos) real penis, or is he wearing some kind of prosthetic? The actor did recently insist he didn't use a body double, so make of that what you will.
Demos told Entertainment Weekly he was entirely comfortable with going full-frontal because "you read the script and know what you're getting yourself into from the start, so I don't think you would sign on to a show after reading the scripts and then say no last minute."
The actor continued, "We would have an intimacy coordinator and everyone would speak about it and their comfort levels. You would rehearse it so much that by the time you did it, it was a lot more comfortable than you'd assume. You discuss everything: hand movements, everything down to the breath. In sex scenes, the breathing is an emotional thing, so you're discussing that journey, but then you're also discussing each individual's comfort level."
Previously, showrunner Stacy Rukeyser told Collider she thought the naked shower scene was key for showing off Cooper's obsession with his wife’s ex-boyfriend. "It was important to show how down the rabbit hole obsessed he has gotten, that he is now stalking his wife’s ex-boyfriend. It’s all internal, there’s no dialogue."
She then addressed the, er, size of the penis, and added, "No. That’s not a body double. I mean, people usually ask is it real or is it a prosthetic? I can tell you what Adam Demos says about it which is, a gentleman never tells. So, we are leaving that up to the viewer’s imagination."
According to Newsweek "a member of the prosthetics team confirmed that the scene does indeed feature a prosthesis," but we'll leave you to make up your own mind.
