Amazon Wanted To Cut 'The Boys' Octopus Sex From Herogasm

Even for Prime Video’s The Boys, this week’s episode “Herogasm” is a lotSpoilers past this point, but in the hour Butcher (Karl Urban) and Hughie (Jack Quaid) take Soldier Boy (Jensen Ackles) to track down two of his former team-members, only to discover they’re hosting this year’s Herogasm, a no-holds-barred superhero orgy.

From serpentine penises, to oodles of semen, to tiny men slathered in, er, juices, there’s so much in “Herogasm” that you can’t unsee. But as it turns out, there was only one thing that gave The Boys‘ overlords at Amazon pause: The Deep (Chace Crawford) having sex with an octopus.

“I think Amazon had some questions about having conjugal relationships with an octopus,” showrunner Eric Kripke told Decider. “Weirdly, for some uptight reason I don’t understand, their standards has a no bestiality rule, which is like, talk about uptight.”

The scene in question is played for comedy, and picks up on threads from The Deep’s continued friendship/infatuation with sea creatures that has played out over the past two seasons. And in particular, there have been several octopus-related incidents that have happened this season; from staring at an octopus at home while making love to his wife, to being forced to eat one live by Homelander (Antony Starr). But the Herogasm incident takes the cake, particularly given how Crawford plays it.

As Annie/Starlight (Erin Moriarty) makes her way through the sexual carnage, she comes upon a quiet room with an aquarium tank in the middle. Quiet, except for the pleased grunts of The Deep. And when she turns the corner, he hops around, revealing the mollusc hanging off of his crotch. “It’s not what it looks like,” says The Deep, though of course it’s exactly what it looks like.

“We had to convince them,” Kripke continued. “It was a negotiation, because I kept saying you would see this in a Farrelly brothers movie. It’s so absurd that it’s not really a sex act as it is this insanity, but that took some negotiating. Everything else was totally fine.”

The Boys streams Fridays on Prime Video.
