If the sex scene in “Avatar” disappointed you, you’re not alone. James Cameron spent a quarter of a billion dollars on special effects, but there wasn’t even a hint of damn Na’vi peen. (Apparently, they screw by sticking their tails together?) Zoe Saldana, the actress who played Neytiri, has a little explanation:
“…Because [Cameron] was shooting for a PG-13 rating, we couldn’t move in certain directions. The motion would look a little too past the PG-13 rating standards. So it was really funny for Sam [Worthington] and me. We had a lot of giggles there.”
Fortunately, Saldana hinted we might get what we’re looking for in an unrated, special-edition DVD.
But let’s not forget there were an awful lot of curse words in “Avatar,” as well as bombings, death and cruelty. This is America today, folks: 13-year-olds can watch a movie with a lot of colonialist carpetbombing and S-bombs, but no Na’vi sex. [New York Magazine]
