Jai Courtney Isn't Modest About Explaining The 'Modesty Pouch' He Uses For Nude Scenes

Jai Courtney is pretty busy right now with "Insurgent," the second installment in the "Divergent" franchise, which hits theaters March 20. But he's also gearing up for the July release of "Terminator: Genisys," and that film required some careful consideration for a specific part of his anatomy, Courtney told HuffPost Live on Monday.

After confirming to host Caroline Modarressy-Tehrani that he did not use a body double in "Terminator," Courtney explained the complicated process of stripping down on set:

I'm an exhibitionist from way back, so it really didn't affect me too negatively. It can be pretty weird, you know, getting nude. It's a funny thing because you have to be respectful to your environment. So even if you're comfortable with it, you have to understand that some people aren't, and there's always things in place to preserve modesty, if you will, as far as you can with that sort of stuff.

The first form of modesty control is the "cock sock," a small apparatus with elastic that is, according to Courtney, quite pricey.

"They're apparently very expensive. Someone's managed to monopolize on this niche market making cock socks," he said.

Then there's the "modesty pouch," which Courtney explained "requires glue" in an intimate area: "Just past your balls. Head a little further south, and that's where you tape it up."

The actor added that the most painful part of it all is removing the adhesive afterward, but the suffering isn't enough for Courtney to rethink his body hair.

"That's far too much maintenance for one man to be concerned about," he said. "I'm hairy, too, so yeah, occasional grooming comes into place. But no, you wouldn't see me getting a back, sack and crack wax. That's too painful, surely."
