About

The Casting Couch refers to a seating furniture often used as a set prop in adult films wherein a woman is interviewed for an acting or modeling position in an office room. The black leather couch is often referenced on image boards and discussion forums, in a similar vein to the Japanese adult film set “That Pool”.

Origin

The casting couch has been used in professional adult films since as early as December 2007, following the launch of the adult entertainment website Backroom Casting Couch[1].
