Danglers, Nip Slips and Side Boob: ‘Naked and Afraid’ Blur Editor Tells All
Do you have a problem with nudity?” That’s the first question I was asked during my interview.

Our job is to make it seamless for viewers so they’re less aware of the blurs. It can be extremely tedious work, so we’ve seen people come and go from here. They just don’t have it in them.
We like to think the fake boobs are easier to pixelate because they don’t move around as much — one of our guys, Shaun O’Steen, says he never really appreciated fake breasts until he started at this job — but, realistically, the crotch is easiest. There’s only one, and arms rarely get in the way.
