Speak with The Daily Telegraphshe said, “The difference is that you see it through the female gaze instead of the male gaze. This feminization of intimacy is so revolutionary that people say, “Well, it must be sexy and raunchy.”’

After it was released on Christmas Day, Bridgerton went from an overnight success to Netflix’s most-watched series, reaching 82 million households in just 28 days.

Julia, who published the first book in the series in 2000, has now defended the kinky series, saying she disagreed with being labeled “Netflix’s raunchy show.”

Created by Shondaland from American TV producer Shonda Rhimes, who produced Grey’s Anatomy and How To Get Away with Murder, the series follows Daphne Bridgerton, the eldest daughter of the powerful Bridgerton family, as she makes her debut in the competitive marriage market. from London.

The show features a star-studded cast, including Julie Andrews as the narrator.

Within the first twenty minutes of the eight-hour series, Anthony Bridgerton – brother of lead actor Daphne – romps with a beautiful opera singer Siena against a tree.

The series also received criticism, including comments about the inclusion of a controversial sex scene in the sixth episode.

It led to accusations by some that the show ignores male rape. In the scene, the main character sees Daphne Bridgerton (Phoebe Dynevor) refusing to stop having sex with the Duke of Hastings (Regé-Jean Page) despite his requests.

But Julia defended the scene, saying, “The debate was interesting. No one questioned that scene when I wrote the book.

How do they film raunchy sex scenes in Bridgerton?

Radio Times intimacy coaches said they always make sure they are fully outfitted with flesh-colored underwear – to use as a modest piece of clothing – mints – to help keep your breath fresh – and heating pads to keep actors warm between takes.

Their kit bags also contain ‘mineral water spray and glycerine to give the impression of sweat drops’.

Green tape is making its way onto the must-have list as it is used to help camera operators understand the actors’ limits.

Their kit bags also include small covers to protect a woman’s modesty and strapless underwear that clings to a male actor’s pelvis and keeps body parts in place.

“So why do we view this differently over time? It has to do with our greater understanding of consent.

“But it’s also harder for modern women to fully empathize with her actions, to understand a woman who was raised to determine her worth through her ability to have children.”

The period drama was renewed for a second season earlier this year, and showrunner Chris Van Dusen has hinted it could run for eight years — one for each of the Bridgerton kids.

In July, it was reported that Bridgerton had to delay filming again for series two, following another positive on-set COVID-19 case — turning Netflix “an expensive headache.”

Due to an earlier case, filming had only just resumed – but a day after cast and crew returned to the drama of the period, things are back on the ice.

People like Phoebe Dynevor and Jonathan Bailey have had to go out of work while several members of the production isolate.

Production for season two of the raunchy hit Bridgerton first kicked off in May at the historic Old Naval College at the University of Greenwich.

Bridgerton is Netflix’s most-watched series ever, as more than 82 million households tuned in to watch it after its release on Christmas Day last year.

The first season focused on the romance between Daphne Bridgerton, played by Phoebe, and Simon, Duke of Hastings, whose role Rege-Jean Page retired in April – much to the dismay of his many fans.

The second season will shift the focus to Daphne’s brother Anthony Bridgerton (Jonathan Bailey), who goes on the hunt for a suitable bride when he meets sisters Kate (Simone Ashley) and Edwina (Charithra Chandran) Sheffield, renamed Sharma for the show.

As he tries to chase Edwina, he finds himself attracted to Kate, despite the fact that they are often at odds with each other.

A release date has not yet been announced.
