10 Actors Explain What It’s Like Doing Hot and Steamy Sex Scenes

10 Actors Explain What It’s Like Doing Hot and Steamy Sex Scenes: Columbia Pictures

Columbia Pictures

We all imagine actors have the inherent ability to control all aspects of their body. They’re actors after all. However, after perusing Reddit’s askReddit posts it would appear they are unable to control their ill-timed erections just like the rest of us. More awkward boner stories found here, from these Reddit users.


1. It Might As Well Have Been a Lead Pipe Dress rehearsals. Loose silky robes, boxers and cleavage were an erection’s wet dream. Thanks to said loose silk robes and boxers I had no chance of hiding it from her. I was 17 at the time; it might as well have been a lead pipe poking her in the back.

She knew. I knew she knew. She knew I knew she knew.

I wanted to die but she didn’t flip out. I mean it was dress rehearsals, it’s not like we were mid live performance. She could have called me out any time. As rehearsals go there were lots of starts and stops and resets. I’m trying not to poke her with it but I can’t go anywhere and I’m telling myself that maybe she didn’t notice after all.

Then she reaches back and grabs it, she starts squeezing and slowly rubbing and I’m freaking the eff out. Our teacher is right there. Right effing there talking about…who gives a f***…

So I obviously fired off about ten seconds in. She lets out a muted “oh damn” and pulls her hand away quickly. Teacher hears and asks what’s wrong. She does the cough giggle and tells him it’s nothing and he goes on droning away. We never talked about it. I tried once but she acted like it never happened.

Best god damn Handy J I’ve ever gotten.

2. Sorry or Not Sorry? I read an interview with Ralph Fiennes where he was asked this question. He said something like: “yeah, there is always this awkwardness with your partner as in: "sorry if I get aroused, also sorry if I don’t”“

3. The Anti-Boner I had a kiss scene in a movie where the girl punches me in the face off the bed and then follows me down and kisses me. About two takes in, she accidentally punched me in the face for real. Blood starts pouring out of my mouth, we actually have to stop to get me cleaned up.

The kicker was that she had to do a bunch of close up shots kissing me, immediately after I stopped bleeding, so I guess that was payback?

4. When in Doubt, Tongue Her Out I was in Westside Story once in youth theatre, and the guy playing the lead was a total creep. There’s a touching scene where he comes across the dead body of his love (Maria) and he’s supposed to kiss her gently goodbye, only this guy thought "what an opportunity” and stuck his tongue in. Director went apeshit.

5. Never Keep One Chambered Shortly after moving to NYC I was doing a very low budget short where I played a teenager who had sex with his girlfriend and the condom broke. I knew there would be nudity during the sex scene and was super nervous about it so I did exactly what any guy does before a first date with an attractive female, I jerked off. Got the first nut out of the way and was instead able to focus on the scene. The only awkward moment happened between takes when a very pretty, very topless girl I was laying on top of whispered to me that had just gotten engaged the night before. I just smiled and said “good for you” while admiring her perkiness through my peripherals.

6. Don’t Be That Guy 15 year old me was roped into being Romeo in the school drama class production of Romeo and Juliet. The start of one scene had Juliet and I waking up in bed together, slightly suggestive but no big deal, at least not until one of my mates in the crowd yelled “stick it in her”.

7. Cock-blocking Costume Designers I was a stage actor for a couple of years and I have done numerous stage kisses. The best one was where I had to simulate receiving a blowjob on stage.

The actress and I were really professional when we started and because we were so serious, nothing happened. But then we started getting more comfortable over time and because she was giving me the “blowjob” under the covers (so that the audience couldn’t see what she was actually doing), she started getting a little more daring. Especially during performance nights.

At first, totally professional, she’d go under the covers and bob her head over my crotch to make it look like a blowjob.

Then she started doing that while tickling my inner thighs, trying to get me to break character.

Then she would tickle my balls through my boxers.

Then another night she reached INTO my boxers and tickled my balls with the tips of her fingers. I paused but didn’t break character.

By closing night, we were very comfortable around each other and there is a tradition of sometimes playing around with a line or a prop in closing night as a prank between actors. She told me she had something special planned and I was pretty oblivious to not know what it was going to be.

So closing night, she went under the covers, head above my crotch and I felt her hands fumbling with the fly of my costume boxers, and to my glee/horror I realized her actual intentions. But then, nothing. She bobbed her head above my crotch like all the previous nights and my dick remained in my boxers. After the show I had to ask her what she was trying to do. In a huff she said, “I wanted to give you an actual blowjob for our closing night, but the costume designers sewed your fly shut!”

8. Boners save Lives Not me but a friend of mine. He was supposed to do a kiss during this one scene, except just before their lips touched, the girl cries out “I had peanut butter today!”. Thank god she said something, because he was deathly allergic.

9. German Temptress Breaks another Heart I just had my first real on screen kiss after over 10 years in the business this past summer as an American actor, acting in the German Katie Fforde television series. (long story)

My first day, second scene, is a kiss. Honestly, it was a break up, kind of goodbye kiss, but the actress was beautiful and we did many takes, each time the kiss would get longer and more passionate.

I started to think this beautiful German actress with super soft lips may be into me, her eye contact was too good to be acting right? Those kisses were too good to be faked right?

So, even better than the kiss was the photos. We had an apartment in the movie, and they needed a bunch of photos of us as a couple to put in frames around the set. So we went around with a photographer and just changed clothes and kissed and cuddled and took photos for an hour. Boners were achieved.

This is where I fell in love and was convinced this actress was into me.

She was not. It was pretty funny. I told the makeup lady and she was like "Oh honey, everyone falls in love with beautiful actresses, that’s why they’re actresses.”

10. Judo Chopped Boner Not a production, but at a Judo seminar I attended when I was 16. We all got paired up with similar sized opponents. In my case it was a woman in her mid 20s. We were all required as pairs to demonstrate ground fighting techniques in front of the class. She was very attractive and being 16 I had no control over the erection that showed up from that much close contact with her. It did not help that whenever she would mount my chest her gi would fall open and her breasts, despite her sports bra, would fall in front of my face.

I kept really hoping she wouldn’t notice, but it was more than a little obvious despite my efforts to concentrate on the fighting.

When it became our turn to demonstrate for the class she immediately (and slyly) swatted me in the groin while we were going to the ground. Needless to say I lost my erection immediately. While it really hurt I was grateful to her for the quick thinking. I was able to get through the routine without any embarrassment.

Afterward I apologized, and she just looked at me and said, “for what?” Then she walked away without another word.

I saw her a few months later at a competition with I’m assuming her husband. She didn’t speak to me, but when she saw me she smiled and winked.

To this day I still feel really awkward about it.
