Kirsten Dunst: What does she think about sex scenes?
Why do we make such a fuss about nude scenes or pics?
We are all born nude, we all like to spend time without clothes. However, when someone has the courage to show their body on TV we make a big deal out of it. It is somehow big news. Why should anyone be embarrassed about their body? Sadly, most of us have been there at some point or the other. But, why should people be ashamed, on TV or anywhere else?
On the other hand, we do have the technology now. No one has to take off their clothes so we could have nude scenes or sex scenes in movies and TV shows. With CGI, deep fake, “cam shop” and so many other cool options, and tons of footage available? Even someone who doesn’t have a lot of experience can make quite a decent project. What can the experts do then? And why don’t they do it? If an actress or an actor is feeling uncomfortable, there is absolutely no need for them to get naked anymore.
Kirsten Caroline Dunst was only 22 years old at the time of the shooting.
She admitted that she was nervous during the filming of nude scenes with fellow actor Jamie Dornan, 39. She said that all of the kissing scenes made her anxious and that she is never comfortable with that.
Although there was a sex scene and Kirsten's undressing in the film, the scene that made her especially uncomfortable but was not in the film in the end, was showing her breasts. Dunst said she was very emotional about it.

So, if so many people in the industry are opening up about feeling bad because of sex scenes, why don’t we use the technology that we have?
Photos are manipulated since the invention of photography, and so are motion pictures. The technology only improved through time and in the past few decades it became difficult to detect for the naked eye. Deepfake was invented in the 1990s, it improved so much that we need detection software to find out which celeb porn is real, for example. It is used for fraud, revenge porn, fake news and so much more. We know it is also used in movies, but, people still have to “go naked” and feel violated in their workplace. We are in the 21st century, so, that is simply unacceptable.
Of course, using deep fake to harm others is also unacceptable. Many online platforms and communities have a firm stance about baning it. Discord, Gfycat Twitter, Reddit, even Pornhub and many others are taking down videos, blocking suspicious content and even deactivating accounts of their users.
