HBO Max’s edgy, teen drama Euphoria premiered it’s second season on Sunday with not one, not two, but three shots of full-frontal, male nudity. That’s got to be some kind of record.
Now one of the actors has taken to TikTok to clarify he did not use a prosthetic in his scene, in case you’ve been wondering.
Ansel Pierce plays an extra during a party scene, but his moment in the spotlight comes as he enters the bathroom, unaware that Cassie is hiding in the tub. Pierce sits on the toilet giving Cassie, and the audience, a full view.
The scene drew some viewers in:

Posting to TikTok, Pierce confirmed, “That is me in the bathroom, not a prosthetic.”
In a second video, he reenacted what it was like to tell his family about his “first big role”:
