You might still haven’t noticed that some scenes you’ve watched in a film occurs in a bathtub. I don’t want to exaggerate but I’ve been seeing it more often, lately. And if i remember correctly the last time i saw it, was in “Shape of Water”. In this movie, you can see that Eliza used it as a place to masturbate every day before the shower and the same bathtub is Amphibian Man’s salt water bathtub. Anyway i felt the need to ask this question: Why bathtub scenes are so frequently showcased in movies?

I think this question can be answered in so many ways. Sometimes it can be seen as a small part of a bathroom that comes to the foreground with the design, but sometimes it is the most important part of the movie where the deepest events occur.

Sometimes you see the horrific scenes with blood in it. A friend of mine, said that she felt most defenseless in the shower. It reminds me of her whenever I see someone who is caught unaware in a bathtub scene since that time.

And these bloods turn into milk and foams according to the situtations where a bathtub is not dangerous anymore but a place of celebration and relaxation.

Sometimes it can do the honours of the most erotic scenes, on the other hand you can see someone who have melancholy in the same tub.

It is an object of many different scenes as i have mentioned above but for now, let’s behold  the couple scenes.
