Adam Demos finally reveals whether he wore a prosthetic penis in that iconic Sex/Life scene

Australian actor Adam Demos has finally spilled the beans on whether or not he is packing the equivalent of a pool noodle in his pants.

The 37-year-old actor shot to superstardom after a certain scene on Netflix's Sex/Life dropped on the streaming service.

He sat down with The Daily Telegraph to chat about life, love, and giant wangs.

He revealed that during filming he didn't contemplate how the scene would be received by fans, let alone that it would tip many social media users into a penis-frenzied overdrive.


"When you’re shooting these things you don’t think they’re going to be a viral moment," he said.

"I don’t even think TikTok was around or that popular."

But then he finally answered the question that has been bugging fans for oh-so long: was the monster one-eyed snake real or not?

"Everyone now knows it’s a prosthetic," he added. "I think that was part of the intrigue."

The farm boy from Wollongong doesn't pack a penis so large it has its own gravitational pull.

"It was all this good humoured speculation and you just have to have a laugh," he told The Daily Telegraph.

"My mates have ammunition on me forever with that scene."


He added: "They think it was hilarious."

So there you have it.

The question that has bugged so many for so long has finally been answered.

Now we may let the giant peen - just like the now-cancelled Sex/Life - lay to rest.


Demos did open up about his relationship with his Netflix costar Sarah Shahi, who played the bored and spoiled housewife turned return love interest on Sex/Life.

Admittedly, what he had to say about his co-star was rather sweet.

"I just fell in love with who she is and what she’s about," he said.


"Her soul, the way she talks about her kids and her family and as a professional, too, I think she’s one of the best actors ever."

He added: "I learn a lot when I get to work with her."

The penis scene Demos had previously remained tight-lipped about sparked many follow-ups in other shows.

Most notably, fans were recently aflutter after Theo James' White Lotus character exposed his member in season two's premiere episode.

While fans were sent into a tizzy on Twitter over the wild scene, James confirmed in an interview on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon in December 2022 that the doodle was, in fact, a prosthetic.

So, basically, all television is a lie.

But it seems that the camera does actually add 10 pounds, as they say.
