The Boys Viewers Left 'Traumatised' By Extremely X-Rated Herogasm Scene

Viewers have been left ‘traumatised’ by the Herogasm scene in The Boys’ latest episode, with one person warning potential viewers: “Never watch The Boys because you will be traumatised.”

Episode six of season three hit Amazon Prime on Friday, and before its release, showrunner Eric Kripke warned people to prepare for ‘one of the most graphic hours of mainstream television anyone will have seen’.

The episode centred on Supes’ annual Herogasm (a massive superhero-filled orgy) and came with a series of content warnings, with one noting the episode ‘is not suitable for any audience’.

The Herogasm was originally a six-issue spin-off miniseries of The Boys graphic novel, where the Supes all team up under the guise of fighting a worldwide threat.

Instead, it turns into a massive superhero orgy across six comic books, which we got see play out on scene this week.

Tuning into the episode, one person wrote on Twitter: “Just started watch The Boys… five minutes in and I'm already traumatised.”

Another echoed: “Well, they weren’t lying. I’m slightly traumatised and regretting watching it at almost 2am because I couldn’t sleep, because i’ll probably not sleep for a month now.. That was something.”

“So uhm, #Herogasm traumatised me a little,” tweeted a third social media user.

Referencing a particularly X-rated moment in which Marvin T (played by Laz Alonso) gets a whole load of bodily fluid blasted into his face, another social media user quipped: “That giant explosion of c*m in #TheBoys kinda traumatised me like, wow.”

Before the episode aired, Kripke gave TVLine an insight into just how graphic the Herogasm is, teasing: “I think you have to really turn to porn to see things that are more graphic.”

He also said that he was 'very surprised' at what the director was able to get away with in shooting the scene.

"When we first started prepping it with Nelson [Cragg], the director, and he was showing us what he had planned, I was just like, 'Wow, are we allowed to show all of that?'" Kripke said.

"They checked with Standards, and there’s like these hilarious rules about how often you can simulate humping and whether or not you can show an erect penis and how long you can show a private part."

He added: "There’s all these rules, but we were within the bounds of what the rules were. So the answer was we could show it."
