So, here’s the deal with sex scenes.
1. Stop putting actors/actresses on pedestals. Believing that certain roles or certain scenes are ~beneath a particular actor/actress is not a very healthy viewpoint to have. Sex scenes do not have to demean an actor (using the gender neutral term from here on out). The only reason sex scenes on TV and in film are seen as demeaning is because we, as a viewing public, have attached those beliefs onto said sex scenes.
2. What is so wrong with sex on TV? I mean, it’s not porn. But on that subject, what’s wrong with pornography as long as the parties involved are consenting and aware of the health risks? Actors are actors. They are portraying a role. There is nothing wrong with sex in real life and there is nothing wrong with sex on television.
3. If a sex scene personally makes you uncomfortable, say it. Own up to that. Don’t say you wish the actress didn’t have to show her boobs. What’s wrong with a woman’s boobs? These are consenting actors. They are not being degraded. Again, we only see it as degrading because we’ve attached an unnecessary viewpoint onto it.
Sex positivity, people. Love it. Own it. Enjoy it.
Also, if we’re going to evaluate priorities: it’s fine for her to be playing a murderer, but it’s not okay for her to do a sex scene?
Potential for grotesque violence = tickety boo?
Sex scene = nonononono?
Now if you want to lament that there wasn’t an, um, similarly high-octane Chuck/Sarah scene, fine, but Chuck is a family-hour show on network television. Dexter’s a mature-audience show on pay cable. WB/NBC were never going to go there, even if TPTB and the cast were to ever have an interest in doing so.
