Rob Delaney Describes His Specially-Made 'Modesty Pouch' For Sex Scenes On 'Catastrophe'

Rob Delaney shows some skin in his new comedy series "Catastrophe," but he made a concerted -- and "embarrassing" -- effort to not show too much, he told HuffPost Live's Ricky Camilleri on Wednesday.

During a conversation alongside his co-star Sharon Horgan, Delaney discussed his sex scenes in the series, which follows a couple who accidentally conceives a child and decides to start a relationship. The intimate scenes required Delaney to wear "a modesty pouch that they specially made for me, which was like a sack that you tie around your whole genital zone."

"It was actually such a weird-looking thing that it was more embarrassing to me than being naked," Delaney said. "But the crew was like, 'No, we'd rather you have that on than be naked.' And I was like, 'Well, suit yourself.'"
