Whips and dungeons, that’s the lovemaking scenes in “Fifty Shades Darker” almost revolve around. With less than a year before “Fifty Shades Darker” hit the big screen, can it be that Dakota Johnson is getting tired of being “tamed” by Jamie Dornan?
In a conversation with Variety back when he was filming the first intallment of the books, the 34-year-old Northern Irish actor admitted that he is never familiar with the whips that he has been using whenever he shoots a steamy bed scene with the 26-year-old actress. However, with the help of an expert, he eventually gets the right way to use them.
“We had an adviser in the field that we’d talk to, a guy on the kink scene,” the “Fifty Shades Darker” actor dished. “He’s a guru, and a dominant. “
“We had some good chats with him. And then there was the practical side of things,” he added. “How do you use this? I’ve never held that! I learned all sorts of tricks that will support me through my life.”
As with the famous whip that he holds whenever his character Christian Grey and his leading lady’s Anastasia “Ana” Steele enjoy some intimate scenes together, the “Fifty Shades Darker” actor disclosed that he was optimistic about getting the “technique” in properly using it.
“I wasn’t talented at it,” he said. “But I got there in the end. It’s really like fly fishing.”
With the second installment filming becoming more intense, one can only wonder if Johnson had already become an expert in using this. But being in the receiving end of it (even in just acting) can be quite tiring!
These “taming” and “whipping” scenes certainly beg the question of how Dakota Johnson is feeling. She never hid the fact that she’s nearing her breaking point in simulating sex. It’s quite a possibility that she hates the whips Dornan had to hold too as of this time!
While talking to “Interview” magazine, the daughter of Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson revealed that filming back-to-back for the two sequels of “Fifty Shades of Grey” is “not comfortable” and “tedious.”
“Well, we’re not having actual sex,” she narrated. “But I’ve been simulating sex for seven hours straight right now, and I’m over it.”
“Fifty Shades Darker” will premiere on Feb. 10, 2017.
