'The Skinny' on the Art of Cleaning Out

It's a crash course in douching. 


Jussie Smollett has been acting for decades. Remember the movie North starring Elijah Wood and Bruce Willis? Yeah, he's in that. While Smollett has been a working actor for most of his career, his big break came when he landed the role of Jamal Lyon, an out musician in the Fox music-drama Empire.

Smollett, who happens to be gay, has played a queer character several times. Although his role on Empire launched his career, we're still hung up on his work in 2012's The Skinny.

Directed by Patrik-Ian Polk (of Noah's Arc fame), The Skinny follows five friends who reunite for a weekend full of fun, friendship, and sex. And to prep for said sex, the guys rely on the age-old practice of douching.

In fact, there's an incredibly educational/hilarious scene in which Sebastian (Blake Young-Fountain) takes a crash course in cleaning out. Watch the clip below for a deep dive into the art of douching.
