And to change those perceptions and beliefs about gender is very difficult and takes a very long time. They are incredibly powerful, and oftentimes we're not even aware of them." The inaccuracies stem from the emphasis placed on knee-jerk moaning and overly dramatic When Harry Met Sally–esque moments that women have during sex scenes.The 20 women informally surveyed also unanimously said that Hollywood's portrayal of the female orgasm misinforms men.One of the women surveyed added, "If a man is stupid enough to rely on the Hollywood female-orgasm portrayal to educate himself about the female orgasm, then his girlfriend, if he has one, will just have to teach him."But help is on the way!She arches her back, and it looks so weird and fake." For the past few decades, men have run Hollywood, making up roughly 80 percent of the writers, directors, producers, etc. Speaking candidly on the subject in the documentary This Film Is Not Yet Rated, writer-director Kimberly Peirce (Boys Don't Cry) points out, "In movies that are mostly written and directed by men—they mostly reflect the male experience, even in sex scenes.It's the male perspective." It's not a stretch to say that men in Hollywood created, if not wrote and directed, the popularized version of the female orgasm and based it on what they thought it was or wanted it to be.
