All those Avatar fans whose desire to experience “the ultimate intimacy” has thus far been limited to cosplay and frustrated, sticky-fingered paging through printouts of James Cameron’s leaked script will finally get their gently undulating wish with the Aug. 27 re-release: Cameron recently confirmed to MTV (who was probably just joking when it asked) that the new version will, in fact, feature that already-legendary Na’vi sex scene. However, Cameron was quick to dampen your excitement, saying that while he’s restored “every last frame” of his “alien kink scene,” it’s only about 20 seconds long and doesn’t quite feature all of the hot, ponytail-insertion action you’ve been longing for:

"I would say, just so that we correctly manage people's expectations," he explained carefully, "it does not change our rating at all. I would call it more of an alien foreplay scene. It's not like they're ripping their clothes off and going at it."

But still, even just the promised sight of steamy “intertwining tendrils” should be enough to help guys like this get through another night of their sadly human existence.
