Steamy Tendril Sex Snipped From Avatar Blue scenes cut to avoid R rating By Mary Papenfuss, Newser User Posted Jan 12, 2010 5:00 AM CST Updated Jan 12, 2010 6:37 AM CST 18 comments Comments Neytiri and Jake get close in a scene from "Avatar." (AP Photo/20th Century Fox, File) (Newser) – Steamy tendril sex (if you go in for that kind of thing) was cut from mega-blockbuster Avatar because director James Cameron wanted to avoid an "R" rating. In the cut "blue" scene Jake and Neytiri join their ponytails together with "trembling anticipation" and the inner tendrils intertwine with "gentle undulations," Gawker reveals. Jake rocks to and fro, and the two collapse, "spent." Guess you had to be there.
