8. Physical Aggression
It’s mentioned that up to 88% of sex scenes contain abuse. Physical abuse, that is. The statistic for verbal abuse is closer to 49%. Well over 3/4 of sex contain some kind of physical roughness. It could be slapping, pushing, pulling, etc, but regardless of what it is, that sounds exhausting.
From a psychological standpoint, researchers are guessing that the aggression appeals to a wide market because it’s a far departure from the actual “real life” sexual experiences of viewers.
Having copious amounts of sex, while seemingly idyllic on paper, is in actuality very exhausting. Add some physical punishment to hours of filming, and you have one seriously taxing job.
