The trailer for don’t worry darlingthe long-awaited film directed by Olivia Wilde which sees Harry Styles and Florence Pugh among the protagonists, sparked a craze for a particularly explicit sex scene.

In the scene in question, we see the character of Harry Styles doing the oral sex on the character of Florence Pugh above a dining table. However, during an interview with The Associated Press, the director explained that the trailer for the film could have been even more provocative. Indeed, the evaluation of the Motion Picture Association weighs heavily on the editing of the trailer, which forces the director to delete other scenes deemed too extensive:

The trailer should have shown a lot more. The MPA was tough on me and at the last second I had to cut some footage from the trailer which upset me as I thought they had raised the bar. But of course, we still live in a puritanical society. I think the lack of eroticism in American cinema is new. Then when it comes to female pleasure, it’s something you don’t see very often unless you’re talking about queer cinema. […] We want to be provocative. The idea is not to make you safe”.

During the recent interview in the latest issue of Variety the director then returned to the subject by adding:

The best depictions of female pleasure we can see these days are all in queer movies. Why are we more comfortable with female pleasure when there are two women in the film? In straight sex scenes, the emphasis on men as recipients of pleasure is almost ubiquitous.“.

The question was also addressed by Florence Poug – interpreter of the film’s protagonist – during an interview with Harper’s Bazaar. The actress has expressed frustration with the hype surrounding the trailer, which Pugh says was born for the wrong reasons. The short sequence of oral sex indeed catalyzed media attention, which would have narrowed the material of interest for the film to this particular scene:

When it all comes down to your sex scenes, or watching the most famous man in the world show up with someone, that’s not what we’re doing it for. That’s not why I’m in this industry. Of course, when you hire the most famous pop star in the world, it becomes normal to have conversations like this. But that’s not what I’m going to talk about, because this film is bigger and better than that, like the people who participated in it.“.
