The Affair actress Ruth Wilson calls for more ‘male orgasms’ on TV

Ruth Wilson has called for more ‘male orgasms’ to be shown on TV, revealing she’s sick of women always being filmed in the throes of pleasure. 

The 36-year-old, who stripped off several times for Sky Atlantic’s raunchy drama The Affair, said there is a lack of equality when it comes to sex scenes.    

‘Why have I always got to do the orgasm face? There should be a male orgasm face,’ the British beauty asked The Sun.

She added: ‘Why is it always the woman who’s orgasming — why aren’t we thinking about that a bit more?’

Ruth revealed she’d had enough of showing her breasts in sex scenes with The Affair co-star Dominic West, so the actor was made to bare more skin. 

Ruth said: ‘Dom and I had to do so many sex scenes and I decided at one point I wasn’t going to show my nipples any more. So poor Dom had to get his a**e out more. 

The actress even jokily referenced Dom’s behind in her Best Actress Golden Globe speech, saying his bum is ‘something of great beauty’.

While the Luther star always looks glam and preened to perfection on the red carpet, she revealed that she used to be teased at school for her striking looks. 

The actress said she was mocked for her full lips, but denied ever having collagen put in them – and said she got flak for her ‘Jack Nicholson eyebrows. 

Ruth’s character Alison Bailey was killed off in the middle of season four of The Affair, leaving fans devastated. 

Inequality? 'Why have I always got to do the orgasm face? There should be a male orgasm face,' the British beauty asked The Sun

Initially it appeared Alison had killed herself but later on it was revealed she’d been murdered. 

She denied her sudden departure was anything to do with her salary, telling The New York Times: ‘It isn’t about pay parity, and it wasn’t about other jobs.’

‘But I’m not really allowed to talk about it.’ The Luther star added. The interviewer then notes that after a long pause Wilson added cryptically: ‘There is a much bigger story.’
