A woman has defended herself after revealing that she made her husband sit through Oppenheimer's famous sex scene with his hands over his eyes.

Cillian Murphy stars as the titular J Robert Oppenheimer in the recent release, while Florence Pugh takes on the role of his lover Jean Tatlock.

The Christopher Nolan-directed film features a steamy sex scene between the pair, which raised eyebrows for more than its nudity as it also offended millions of Hindus by featuring the character reading from their holy text, the Bhagavad Gita.

However, it wasn't the religiously offensive moment that made one woman ban her husband from watching, but she did confess to making him cover his eyes while they watched the flick at the cinema.

Jourdan Kehr, from West Virginia, took to TikTok to reveal that she had forced her husband to look away when the steamy scenes came on, due to the fact she felt "betrayal trauma" after finding out he watched porn.

Kehr revealed she had researched the movie before going to see it, and came up with a "game plan" that her husband should shut his eyes and put his head on her shoulder when Pugh's nude scenes flashed up on screen.

The 29-year-old responded to one of her followers who asked her advice for couples "wanting to watch Oppenheimer but being fully afraid of the Florence Pugh scene everyone is talking about".

She revealed: "Okay so I research everything before we watch it but especially this movie. Obviously I heard about it, yes we wanted to see it, it has an amazing rating.

"We prepared ourselves. I didn't know when the scene was going to happen and I also didn't understand how the scene was happening. I thought it was just several minutes straight of…", before mouthing the word "sex".

Unfortunately for Kehr, the movie flashes back and forth between timelines which made it "really difficult to avoid it."

She explained that she and her husband are very open about talking about things that may trigger them and came up with a "game plan" of how to get through the three-hour film.

"So essentially what we did was when the scene came up, when things were happening, he literally closed his eyes and laid his head on my shoulder... Then I would just let him know when it was over," she revealed.

She added: "I will tell you right now it took nothing away from the story. Him not looking at the screen during did not change the storyline, did not change anything."

Kehr revealed that she and her husband go to such extreme measures because she went through "trauma" after finding out he watched porn, but says he is now 10 months "sober".

She explained: "I went through betrayal trauma 10 months ago after nine years of marriage, 10 years of being in a completely monogamous relationship.

"I was fully under the belief that he didn't look at other women, he didn't self-pleasure at other women, porn was the furthest thing from my mind.

"I never would have thought or believed that he was using porn but he was and I found out about it on September 17, 2022. That was the hardest day of my life. It was the hardest following weeks and following months of my life."

Kehr described the effect the revelation had on her, adding: "Betrayal trauma has changed me as person, inside and out.

"It put me through a lot of stress. It put me through a lot of pain. It put me through sickness. It put me through depression. Gave me a lot of stress and a lot of anxiety.

"I've come a long way in my healing... I'm still with my husband and I'm so happy and I'm so thankful, and I'm so proud to say that he's been sober for 10 months.

"He's been doing all the steps, all the work, everything necessary to not only change, stay sober and reach long-term recovery but to also assure me that he is creating a safe space, he is becoming a trustworthy person and he is showing me the signs that I need by his actions, his behaviors and his patterns that he is going in the right direction."
