There are some movies which set your heart racing — the sort of movies you would never watch with your parents. These types of movies are most memorable for their raunchy sex scenes. For viewers, these can offer entertainment or a fantasy to compensate for their own lack of romantic prospects. But do we ever consider what it is like for the actors filming these scenes? More specifically, have we considered the treatment of women during sex scenes, given their consistent objectification in the film industry? Actress, Keira Knightley, has recently said that she will refuse to shoot sex scenes unless filmed by a female director. She has featured in multiple sex scenes filmed by male directors, her most famous being in the film, Atonement , where she wore her iconic silky green dress.

The male gaze
Keira Knightley is speaking out about her attitude towards shooting intimate scenes directed by men. During an appearance on the Chanel Connects podcast, the actress spoke with director Lulu Wang and writer-producer Diane Solway about her decision to no longer participate in sex scenes if they're helmed by a male filmmaker. I'm not interested in doing that. The actress went on to share how uncomfortable she feels portraying scenes of these nature when they're coming from the point of view of the male gaze, but conceded that when a sex scene seems necessary, she'll opt for a body double. This isn't the first time Knightley has spoken about her interactions with male directors.
