Directing Movie Sex Scenes

We know that sex scenes must be fairly awkward for actors — you try to looking like you’re turned on while an audience of cameramen, technicians, craft services, etc., watch — but what’s it like to be the person who decides who caresses/touches/kisses whom, as well as when and where? Director Michael Winner told the Observer, “[Sex scenes] weren’t uncomfortable for me except when Marlon Brando insisted on wearing pants and Wellingtons when he was meant to be naked having sex with Stephanie Beacham in an erotic scene in The Nightcomers. The cameraman kept calling ‘pants’ or ‘Wellington boots,’ indicating they were in the shot. The minute I said ‘cut’ I was on the floor crying with laughter. The scene came out superbly.” [Guardian.co.uk]
