THE GIANT PENIS SCENE IN THE BOYS SEASON THREE WAS A PRACTICAL EFFECT

The Boys are back for it’s third season, and if you caught the first three episodes, then you know the series is pushing the envelope beyond anything I could ever imagine.

If you haven’t seen the new season yet, DO NOT READ BEYOND THIS SENTENCE.

A few minutes into the third season premiere, I was beyond shocked to witness a scene featuring an Ant-Man esque superhero named Termite involved in a coke-fueled sex party.

During one sequence, he has sex with a doll in front of partygoers, and when his male lover takes him in the bedroom and demands that he wants Termite inside of him, we’re in for the gag of all gags when he shrinks himself miniature size, does a few more lines of coke, and takes sounding to a whole new level by inserting himself inside of his lover’s urethra.

As he’s heading towards his prostate, he accidentally ends up killing his lover after he sneezes, growing back to his human size and exploding him from the inside out.

If you were wondering like I was who in the heck would have the imagination to come up with such a scenario, showrunner Eric Kripke (Supernatural) revealed to Entertainment Weekly that writer Craig Rosenberg came up with the idea.

“Once you realize you’re gonna do a tiny Ant-Man character, you have to have that Ant-Man run up someone’s butt and then blow them up,” Kripke said of the scene’s origin. “But then we realized that we already had blown up someone’s ass (the superhero Translucent had a pipe bomb explode inside his anus in season 1). There’s only so many orifices a person can go in. So really, by process of elimination, you run into a urethra.”

He also revealed that the scene where Termite caresses the inside of his lover’s penis was a practical effect and not CGI.

“You’re not supposed to show an erect penis,” Kripke said. “So we had to be very careful with the design of the penis — ’cause we built it practically. That’s a real 11-foot-high, 30-foot-long penis built at great expense. But if you look at it, we had to design in all these wrinkles to make it clear that it wasn’t erect. So, anyway, it’s exhibit 7,023 why I love this job.”
