‘You’ Season 5 Confirmed... Take A Look Back at Its Iconic Sex Scenes

And the list of reasons Penn Badgley is over it.

Penn Badgley, star of Netflix drama You and fan favorite from Gossip Girl, has performed in many intimate scenes but according to several recent interviews, he loathes sex scenes.

Can I just do no more intimacy scenes?” Badgley revealed he asked the show’s creator Sarah Gamble.
“This was actually a decision I had made before I took the show,” he continued. On Season 4 of You, all sex scenes are filmed fully clothed to accommodate his lack of desire for, well, desire-driven scenes. As for Season 5, little has been teased about the show aside from it being the final season, but one things for sure: Joe will most likely not being having sex on screen.

Season 4, however, holds the crown of best sex scene yet: the golden shower. Adam (played by Lukas Gage) enjoys being urinated on by a staff member and Joe (played by Badgley) accidentally catches a glance of Adam. Yes, they were in public and although they found it hot… it was rather unsanitary. As viewers, we soon learn that Adam’s kink is related to power play, as he enjoys being dominated by those in lesser social positions as him — in this case, the staff.

According to a very honest interview with Variety, Badgley has a laundry list of reasons as to why he despises sex scenes. And it has nothing to do with qualms of sanitation. To be frank, his commentary on the topic was shared in 2023, and was gravely taken out of control, according to him. But, nonetheless, he does have a laundry list of reasons he despises them so, let’s dive in.

Not wanting to become a “one trick pony”

After semi-securing his dream girl in Gossip Girl and now, stalking women on You, Badgley worried he’d fall into a career trap of only being casted in romantic roles. ”I don’t think I’ve ever mentioned it publicly, but one of the main things is, Do I want to put myself back on a career path where I’m always [the] romantic lead,?” Now, the artist is dabbling in all art forms from podcasting to producing, and seems to enjoy the range.

Age gap dynamics:

Badgley is now older than his romantic interests in his series, You, which “Didn’t used to be the case,” he admitted.

His marriage:

“My fidelity in my relationship,” Badgley shared, “It’s important to me. And actually, it was one of the reasons that I initially wanted to turn the role down. I didn’t tell anybody that. But that is why.”

Cause f-ck Hollywood:

“Having done a fair amount of them in my career… It’s not a place where I’ve blurred lines,” he spoke of his experience with sex scenes. “There’s almost nothing I could say with more consecration. That aspect of Hollywood has always been very disturbing to me — and that aspect of the job, that mercurial boundary — has always been something that I actually don’t want to play with at all.”

In other news, mother of ‘You‘ star, Lukas Gage, comments on his latest sex scenes.
