‘Saltburn’ Creator on Why That Period “Sex” Scene Is So Powerful

“I just think it’s really hot… he dedicates himself to her pleasure.”

Saltburn creator Emerald Fennell dives into that period sex scene as social media ranks the film’s controversial moments.

This post contains spoilers.

“I just think it’s really hot,” Fennell stated in an interview. “It’s an incredibly effective sex scene because he’s worshiping her [Venetia's] body, and everything that her body produces, and that’s not something that anyone has ever done for her before,” Fennell told Time.

In the scene prior, Oliver’s been told that Venetia is a masochist, meaning she’s aroused both physical and psychological pain. He also learns that she has an eating disorder and before viewers know it, he’s in the garden pleasuring her and telling her “that her body is beautiful.”

According to Fennell, who also created the iconic film about femme-revenge, Promising Young Woman the theme of Saltburn is power. “About who’s got and and how to get it,” and throughout the film, viewers witness Oliver “Inuit what it is people want.” No matter how messy each moment is.

“He dedicates himself to her pleasure,” Fennell continues. And inadvertently communicates that ”everything about her is beautiful and a turn on… But most importantly, that he “has no qualms or squeamishness about anything about her… and I think that is a gift.”

In other news, Barry Keoghan reveals that graveyard masturbation scene was… improvised. For more Saltburn, here’s how to cop Jacob Elordi’s bath water.
