Netflix forced to issue warning over 'intense' Obsession pillow scene
| Last updated
Netflix have been forced to issue a rather tongue-in-cheek warning over an incredibly intense scene involving a horny main character and a pillow.
If you've already watched the series, then you'll know exactly which scene I'm talking about.
For those not quite in the know, Obsession is the latest drama to take the streaming platform by storm.
The four-part drama follows the jaw-dropping affair between successful surgeon William Farrow (Richard Armitage) and his son's new fiancée, Anna Barton (Charlie Murphy).
The official Netflix synopsis teases how the affair 'spirals into a dangerous, all-consuming obsession, with devastating consequences for the whole family'.
Obsession, which is based on Josephine Hart’s 1991 novel Damage, leaves very little to the imagination with its many graphic sex scenes - making it a painfully unsuitable watch with the parents.
But there's one particular erotic scene in the second episode that left viewers well and truly cringing in their seats.
Yep, I'm talking about that pillow scene which basically does what it says on the tin - William humping a hotel room pillow that smells like Anna.
Fans flooded to Twitter to vent their thoughts, with one saying: "I will never look at a cushion the same again," while another added: "Guys this Obsession show on Netflix??????? Bro just smashed a PILLOW????????"
Someone else wrote: "Listen obsession is one of the weirdest shows Netflix have dropped in a minute. How is this fella bashing to a pillow that smells of his sons mrs???? What is going on."
And a fourth asked: "How can I ever sleep on a hotel pillow ever again after watching obsession?"
Well, Netflix have since decide to address the ridiculously massive elephant in the room by issuing a statement to fans who are about to watch the steamy drama.
Taking to Netflix UK and Ireland's Twitter account, they laid out the timings of the moments that people may want to excuse themselves from.
"If you've made the (questionable) decision to watch Obsession with your parents, these are the moments you'll probably want to excuse yourself:
"Ep1: 26m14s / Ep2: 00m32s / Ep2: 22m00s / Ep3: 10m15s / Ep3: 25m58s /Ep4: 02m15s."
What would we do without Netflix, eh?
This comes after Charlie Murphy opened up about the show's sex scenes, revealing in an interview with The Independent that the two main stars kept their distance from each other after their first meeting at the table read in a bid to emulate the relationship between their characters, who don’t know much about each other.
“He fed me a few olives and then we shook hands and said goodbye," she explained.
After the actors spent a week filming their intimate scenes together, Murphy said ‘it was a nice parallel’ as they had ‘experienced [their] world already’.
