Published Sep 30, 2015The upcoming porn series The Deuce may not, in fact, be the most pornographic thing in the works at HBO. That designation seems to belong to Westworld, a televised adaptation of Michael Crichton's classic 1973 dystopian sci-fi film. Based on the contracts for the show's extras, there's a baffling amount of sex and nudity in the show.
Extras on the show are required to commit to full nudity, but it doesn't just end there. They also may be required to "participate in graphic sexual situations." These include things like "genital-to-genital touching," having "your genitals painted," a willingness to "contort to form a table-like shape while being fully nude" and posing "on all fours while others who are fully nude ride on your back."
Here's the full sex section of the show's contract [via Vulture]:
This document serves to inform you that this project will require you to be fully nude and/or witness others fully nude and participate in graphic sexual situations. By accepting this Project assignment, you may be required to do any of the following: appear fully nude; wear a pubic hair patch; perform genital-to-genital touching; have your genitals painted; simulate oral sex with hand-to-genital touching; contort to form a table-like shape while being fully nude; pose on all fours while others who are fully nude ride on your back; ride on someone's back while you are both fully nude; and other assorted acts the Project may require. The Project will also include language and sexual situations that some may consider personally objectionable or uncomfortable.
Fortunately, the actors will be protected by the SAG-AFTRA union while they make naked body tables and play sexy horsey with one another. A union representative will be on set at all times to ensure that the set is closed, photography can't be taken without consent and all consent can be withdrawn at any time.
While it doesn't have any of the baffling nudity described above, you can watch a brief teaser for Westworld below. The show will arrive next year.
