The season 3 episode titled ‘Herogasm’ (3×06) premieres on Prime Video on June 24.

season 3 of TheBoys It’s already being the focus of conversation for its first four episodes, especially with that sex scene in which a superhero dwarfs himself and enters another guy’s rectum, ending up accidentally sneezing and killing him when he returns to life size.

But here it is not the thing, since the weight of the expectation of the extreme madness that characterizes the series of Amazon Prime Video falls on the sixth episode entitled ‘Herogasm’ (3×06)an episode that will host the biggest orgy ever seen on television and that will premiere next June 24.

Those who know Garth Ennis comics know that this episode will be highly controversial, as the comic series was suddenly canceled after only six issues due to its extremely graphic content and satirical attacks on the idea of ​​comics. superheroes in general. Later, it was picked up by another publisher that released several mini-series, including Herogasm.

We tell you below everything we know about this huge orgy that has obvious parodies of many popular superheroes involved in internships that they were perverted at best and illegal at worst.

What is Herogasm?

herogasm

In The Boys comics, Herogasm is an annual festival where most of Vought’s superheroes secretly gather at a remote tropical resort to perform. a company-sponsored orgy. During a weekend, practically anything goes, both legal and illegal. During that period of time, the superheroes have several sex workers available who are paid $100,000 each to do anything they are asked to do.

What made this orgy even more unsettling was that it was always covered up by a public announcement that all the heroes were joining forces to face a fake crisis that required everyone to work together. After spending several days getting drunk, having sex, and generally demeaning themselves as they see fit, the superheroes would return home to a warm welcome from everyone without knowing what they were really doing in private.

Why is Herogasm so controversial?

Taking into account that it is an orgy without any restrictions, there are several scenes that could be quite controversial for television, such as the sex scene between Soldier Boy (Jensen Ackles) and Patriot (Antony Starr) hoping to earn a place in The Seven. Although its creator, Eric Kripke, has confirmed that said sequence has not been shot.

In the comics, A-Train (Jessie T. Usher) witnesses a quad among the Fantastico, a parody of the Fantastic Four. There’s also a pretty shocking scene between Black Noir (Nathan Mitchell) and Hughie Campbell (Jack Quaid). While in the middle of a mission, Hughie was discovered by Black Noir, who dropped his pants and sexually assaulted him with his thumb. It is implied that Black Noir could have gone even further, calling Hughie a ‘good soldier’ ​​as he did so. Hughie, deeply humiliated, did not discuss the incident with the rest of his classmates until much later.

But apart from its sexual content. herogasm was also controversial for how he treated 9/11, in which The Seven made an unsuccessful attempt to stop one of the planes seized by terrorists, causing it to crash into the Brooklyn Bridge and kill over a thousand people. If they had been successful in their mission, it would almost certainly have allowed Vought to change the laws that prohibit superhumans from engaging in military affairs.

In episode 1 of season 2 of TheBoys, we got to see Love Sausage, the superhero whose main power is to fully control his abnormally large penis like a tentacle and use it to strangle his victims. Nothing confirmed yet, but it is rumored that will appear again in the Herogasm episodebeing, honestly, the best time for his return.

traumatized people

We don’t know if we’ll see many of the controversial scenes from the comics in season 3 of TheBoysbut we do know that many people on the team ended up traumatized by the shooting of the Herogasm:

Even the director didn’t know what he was shooting anymore,” explains Jensen Ackles to Vanity Fair. “Our team seemed traumatized

The Supernatural actor has also claimed that a cameraman ended up speechless as to what he had to shoot one day at the orgy:

I walked into the set, I don’t want to say who was in that particular scene, but I was working that day and I walked up to our cameraman who was eating a sandwich off set and I said, ‘How’s it going? And he said to me: ‘Well I saw something very crazy today!’ And I was like: Oh no…!

lube everywhere

There is no orgy without lubricant, that’s how it is. So it is not surprising that there are bottles of lubricant on the set in the occasional scene. Detail that gave rise to a rather funny anecdote, as Jensen Ackles himself told us in a recent interview with Sensacine:

The costume crew, due to the nature of what was going on there, had put large bottles of lube scattered throughout the set. But since there was COVID, there were also bottles of hand gel scattered around the set. And you knew someone was wrong, something that happened every 10 minutes, when someone basically yelled. Thinking it was hand gel, they filled their hands with lubricant.

The uncut version would be rated X

Episode 6 is illegal in like four countries”, explains its creator Eric Kripke to SensaCine. “I discovered that we had to cut very large parts to allow it to be broadcast.

This is the level of insanity that surrounds the Herogasm episode. But the expectation grows even more when Kripke himself has also stated in a recent interview with TheWrap that if the sixth chapter had a version without cuts, would have an X rating:

If we showed everything we saw in the editing room, we would surely get an X rating. I can’t even understand what we’ve shot. […] So there will be a lot of self-censorship. But anyone who is a fan of the comics and that particular volume of Herogasm, I can only say that they will definitely get the full Herogasm experience.
