James Cameron's megahit Avatar never explains how the Na'vi people go about getting it on. But apparently, the DVD will give a full run-down on the topic... and it may raise some potentially squicky issues.
In the film, Jake Sully (Sam Worthington) "mates" with Neytiri (Zoe Saldana) under the magic tree. The two share deep meaningful yellow-eyed stares and then one long kiss, and in hindsight it's slightly weird that another alien species would actually "kiss" each other — an extremely Earthling thing to do — but whatever. We then cut relatively quickly to the "morning after" moments. Leaving us to wonder, how do they do it? In a group interview, Saldana explained what we were missing, and gave us some clues as to how the Na'vi people do the blue deed. Apparently the hair tail syncing system, which the Na'vi use for just about everything, is heavily involved.
If you sync to your banshee and you're syncing to a tree, why not sync into a person? I almost feel like you'll have the most amazing orgasm, I guess. It was a very funny scene to shoot because there were so many technical things that sometimes you have to keep in mind that paying attention to all those might disrupt the fluidity of how a scene is supposed to take place.
And because Jim was shooting for a PG-13 rating, we couldn't move in certain directions. The motion would look a little too past the PG-13 rating standards. So it was really funny for Sam and me. We had a lot of giggles there.
Alright, she's not revealing a ton, but is she implying that there's something under those little brown loincloths? I'm assuming that's what she meant by "certain directions." If not, then we'd have to assume that Na'vi mating only includes the hair tail syncing system. Which puts us in a bit of a dirty little conundrum. If syncing up basically means "the most amazing orgasm" ever, um, what does it mean when the Na'vi are syncing up to the rest of the Pandorian wildlife? Can the animals really consent, or even understand what's going on here?
I guess we'll have to wait until the DVD is released, since James Cameron himself promised to a group of reporters that the scene would be on there, but we're guessing it will be pretty tame because of the aforementioned PG-13 rating.
We had it in and we cut it out. So that will be something for the special edition DVD, if you want to see how they have sex.
Until the DVD, or until we get our hands on some Na'vi fanfic. But for now we'll keep wondering just why everyone was so extra smiley face *nudge nudge wink wink* happy while riding their dragons.
