The director of a cable tv series is shooting a scene where a woman is breast feeding a 10 yo boy. In order for it to appear realistic, the director requires the boy to actually suckle. Should he be legally allowed to shoot the scene?

Just Bob,
Are you a lawyer or just live in a different world than I do?

You come up with some crazy scenarios.

Yes, it's not a big deal. It's not inappropriate, breasts don't hold any sexual implication.

Maybe not inherently, but they certainly do culturally.

And that is one concept I just cannot begin to understand- why? Males have breasts too, and yet it is completely legal to show that.

He should be allowed to shoot the scene if the lady and the boys parents giver their consent

What woman can still produce milk when the child is 10 years old? And even if she could, thats disgusting.

Good point. But still breast feeding a 10 year old is just wrong. Idk it's just a show so I guess it's all good. But I wouldn't be ok with the 10yo really doing it for the scene.

Ivyra Earth
06/13/14 7:18 pm

I doubt there are many cases like that in real life. My brother did until 5 and that was old... But it is a show, things like these are usually put in on purpose. As for the 10-year-old, it's just an aspect of the professional acting career.

So in sex scenes do the actors actually have to have full penetration in order for it to seem real?
Its not necessary.

No breastfeeding isn't sexual but breasts are. Let me pose a scenario for you Ivyra. You are at work a male coworker comes in and says, wow your boobs look hot and perky, then pretends to squeeze them. sexual harassment or just a nice compliment?

I don't see an issue with it, it isn't a sexual thing, but if they have concerns or to keep the dirty thoughts police off their backs, it would be a simple thing these days to just use a fake boob. "Problem" fully averted.

If the young actor, and I question how young he actually is, understands this is simply a role in a movie, there should be no harm to him. As for people watching this, game of thrones is clearly not a show for children.

If parents do not want their children to see this, they need to limit their exposure to it. Good luck given the Internet. That's life these days.
