Now Australian media personality Em Rusciano has shared ‘proof’ that the size of the actor’s manhood is legit.

The 42-year-old took to Instagram to post private DMs she had received from people who grew up in Adam’s hometown, who seem to confirm that his size is real.

“Hey Em, I grew up in the same town as Adam Demos (a year below me at school) and I can guarantee you there were no special effects,” one person messaged. “He is a big boy!!”

A second follower sent a similar message, writing: “My family grew up in Dapto with Adam Demos. My sister asked his bestie if it was his penis and it is.”

Since its release on the streaming platform just over a week ago, the steamy romance has quickly risen in the top 10 most popular titles list.

Starring Sarah Shahi and Adam Demos, who are dating in the real world, Sex/Life focuses on a suburban mother’s life dramatically changing when her bad-boy ex returns.


Viewers were sent into a frenzy after seeing Adam’s full-frontal nude scene in episode three of the show.

Sex/Life on Netflix, episode three… Is it real?” one user wrote.

"Watched Sex/Life on Netflix and that shower scene has got to be a prosthetic,” another tweeted.

While many people stood firm that the nude appearance was fake, series creator Stacy Rukeyser responded to the speculation.

“No, that’s not a body double. I mean, people usually ask is it real or is it a prosthetic?” she said in an interview with Collider.

I can tell you what Adam Demos says about it which is, a gentleman never tells. So, we are leaving that up to the viewer's imagination.”

Chatting with Entertainment Weekly, Adam also spoke about his comfortability with being naked on screen.

“I was okay with it because you read the script and know what you're getting yourself into from the start, so I don't think you would sign on to a show after reading the scripts and then say no last minute,” he explained.

“That doesn't mean you can't have discussions about comfort level, which they allowed us to have - and with the intimacy coordinator, so it felt a lot safer.”
