Even if you don’t watch True Blood as religiously as some of us do, you probably know that HBO show has a lot of two things: nudity and vampires. And while Alexander Skarsgard likes to parade around set buck-naked (because that’s how they do things in Sweden), his costars Stephen Moyer and Ryan Kwanten are a little more modest. Hence: the ‘modesty sock,’ which we didn’t know was a thing until The Advocate brought it up in a recent interview. Of course, they framed it a little differently:
Your True Blood costar Stephen Moyer recently auctioned off his “modesty sock” for charity. Would you auction off your penis pouch for a gay charity like The Trevor Project?
Well, I’ve gone through more than one, so there might be a couple out there. I’ll have to speak to Audrey, our wardrobe designer, and see if she can track one down. There’s quite a collection, actually—one for every mood.
Who would have known that Ryan, who has talked about selling his sperm and has a sex/relationship book coming out, would be such a shy guy?
