I feel like it’s one of Jamie Dornan’s key messages: you will not see his dick in Fifty Shades Of Grey.
Dornan covers the latest issue of Variety in advance of the film’s February 13 release. Just 3 weeks away now. And, as I’ve been telling you, almost to the point of creepiness now, I can’t wait. Because I want to get horny at the movies.
Much of this article however is about the lack of sex – how Sam Taylor-Johnson wanted to focus less on penetration than on foreplay, choosing instead to build the story first, and the tension, before delivering on sensuality. Interestingly, there’s a note here about how EL James, the author, “found herself at odds with (Sam) about keeping details from the book intact."
That’s a very good sign. Because the book was so much sh-t. If Sam was assertive enough to push for an improvement, even over the objections of the author, at the very least, the movie will be better than what you read, although it’s still unclear whether or not she managed to give Anastasia Steele an actual personality.
Christian Grey’s orgasm face. We don’t get enough of male orgasm face – not in conventional cinema and definitely not in porn. As you know, I like my porn. And for the most part, the porn that I enjoy offers enough of the “female gaze” to get me off. But there is definitely a serious lack of dude come face. Because they’re too busy shooting the actual coming. Since Fifty Shades Of Grey is R-rated, there will be no ejaculation. Which evidently frees up the camera to give us Jamie Dornan’s expression of release, something he’s anxious about:
“It’s the worst thing imaginable. For all the reasons anyone would think, most people would like to keep their sex face private. The idea of a million people seeing that! I hope it happens quite fast.”
I don’t. I hope the camera lingers.
