For the scene, Euphoria creator Sam Levinson reportedly took inspiration from the controversial psychedelic 1973 animated film Belladonna of Sadness.
“Something that I thought was a fascinating or exciting idea was to take this burgeoning curiosity about sexuality that’s ultimately framed through the lens of fan fiction and allow it to come to life,” Levinson told IndieWire. “It’s sort of what Kat’s dream would be if she could see an animation of one of her stories. That was the impetus behind it. It’s sort of allowing her wishes to come true.”
