Daniel Radcliffe thinks Gay Sex is Painful, Plus Other Behind-The-Sex-Scenes Revelations

Daniel Radcliffe thinks Gay Sex is Painful, Plus Other Behind-The-Sex-Scenes Revelations

On-screen sex can be all sorts of hot, even though most of what we see on TV and in film is of the heterosexual variety. There’s a craft involved in making the finished product seem to drip off the screen, and good sex scenes can be masterful storytelling.

But it’s another story entirely for the actors and actresses shooting the scenes. It’s almost reminiscent of first-time experiences — awkward, fumbling, uncomfortable.

Here’s a rundown of some of our favorite actors discussing getting down during a hard day’s work:

Jamie Dornan on the upcoming 50 Shades of Gray1 screen sex“Your dignity is intact as much as it’s all tucked away in a little flesh-coloured bag… As a guy you put all your essentials in a little bag and you tie it up like a little bag of grapes and it’s tucked away.”

Neil Patrick Harris on Gone Girl2 screen sex‘We had to rehearse the sex scene with David [Fincher], like every inch of it — ‘Then you put your mouth on his dick here, and then this number of thrusts, and then you ejaculate.’ He doesn’t want a lot of reinterpretation once you start rolling.’

Daniel Radcliffe on Kill Your Darlings3 screen sex“I was talked through it by the director [John Krokidas]. He would be telling me what I would be feeling in each take. Basically, gay sex, especially for the first time, is really fucking painful. And he said that he had never seen that portrayed accurately on film before. He wanted it to look like an authentic loss of virginity.”

Jon Hamm on Bridesmaids4 screen sex“It’s like running in the rain. There’s a certain point when you go, ‘Fuck it, I’m already wet. I’m not going to get any less wet, so I might as well just enjoy how this feels.’ I mean, sure, there’s awkwardness about being in a weird flesh-colored thong, bouncing on top of an actress.”

Anna Paquin on True Blood5 screen sex“Maybe it should be weird, simulating sex with your husband in front of people? But it’s really not. When it’s a love scene with someone you actually love, there’s no feeling like, ‘Can I touch him here? Can I touch him there?’ You know what your boundaries are — or what they aren’t, I suppose.”

Michael Douglas on Behind The Candelabra6 screen sex“The hardest thing about sex scenes is that everybody is a judge. I don’t know the last time you murdered somebody or blew anyone’s brains out, but everyone has had sex and probably this morning, which means everyone has an opinion on how it should be done.”

Dave Franco on Neighborsdave franco nude Neighbors“It was my first real sex scene where I show my butt. You’re not going to have that reaction when you see it on the big screen. It was nerve-wracking. I was pretty nervous. I met the girl the day before, and she was beautiful and very sweet. But it’s awkward. You meet each other and then you’re grinding. You don’t even know her name … barely.”

Jake Gyllenhaal on Love and Other Drugs8 screen sex“I’ve had a pretty illustrious career at this point, but the hardest thing has been pretending to be turned on by Anne Hathaway. And I pride myself on really having pulled it off.”

Bradley Cooper on Wet Hot American Summer9 screen sex“I remember saying, ‘What if we wear tube socks, and I’ll go up on the wall, and you’ll come from behind me.’ And I said in the scene, ‘Say my name,’ and Michael says, ‘Ben!’ And I say, ‘No! Say my Christian name,’ and he whispers, ‘Benjamin,’ and that’s when I came.”

      Daniel Radcliffe happens to be a very versatile actor(hehehe), he’s career choices after Harry Potter haven’t been huge box office hits but they’ve shown the audience that he has range and isn’t scared of taking risks. I mean the man was completely nude in Eqqus and that was on fucking broadway in front of a live audience!!!
      Its only a matter of time before he gets another record breaking blockbuster role.

    Patrick Harris nailed his scene(pun intended) and don’t even get me started on Rosamund Pike. Damn, that movie did absolutely no wrong.
    Daniel Radcliff was spectacular in kill your darlings. His Harry Potter days, he has effectively erased. I watched his sex scene and I was like, “Ok, that portrayal is spot on”

    Jake had no chemistry with Anne. He had it more with Heath in Brokeback mountain. Dude needs to go check himself.

    Back to Gone Girl, OH MY GOD!!!!!! That is essentially the movie of 2014. Not that I did not know how it would all play out since I’ve read the book but the portrayals by the actors, OH MY GOD!!!!!
    Ok, let me stop talking, this is not a movie forum.

    Has anyone seen that Behind The Candelabra movie? i think the gay sex scenes were pretty much spot on as far as mainstream tv is concerned, especially compared to HTGAWM. I roll my eyes each time they try to make gay sex seem so spontaneous and easy in that series. Gay sex for one is NEVER spontaneous, you have to douche and wash your bum very thoroughly, and I’m pretty certain no Top would want to go down on a Btm without first inquiring how clean that place is down there, if ever they decide to be spontaneous, that is

        Lol. Absalom you’re such a trouble maker.
        Tobby like pinky said the sex isnt real its simulated when you see the men nude, they are usually wearing a tube sock or a small bag of some sort to cover up their penis. The butts arent even theirs sometimes. They belong to body doubles. So when there is sex scene there isnt any actual penetration.

        If they were having real sex they would be no different from pornstars would they??
