Filming sex scenes, according to most actors, is not a turn-on. Of course, there are big cameras and large crews accompanying them. For a director who is judging every caress and moan, it’s a performance with a stranger-turned-scene-partner.
Actors use a variety of techniques to imitate sex, including pillows between them, cosmetics and body stockings, and push-ups to make their muscles bulge. However, the movement is frequently improvised. Obviously, not all heated situations are romantic.
A nudity rider isn’t uncommon to include minute information like which body parts are shown, how much of the body part is displayed, and how long the body part is visible. A succession of filmed vignettes is combined in the edit and then fit good music using skilled acting, solid lighting techniques, meticulous staging, a mastery of good lenses, a well-disciplined crew, and solid direction. Filming a sex scene can take many days, and it’s a physical agony for the actors (who may or may not like each other) and their partners (who may feel compelled to watch or not watch).
Even if a vivid sex scene in a non-porn film appears to be completely genuine, it may not be. Producers will employ body doubles to execute the sex scenes, then CGI the actors’ faces onto the doubles’ bodies because regular performers almost never consent to have actual intercourse on camera.
