Warning: This post will contain some explicit sexual language from E L James' incredibly popular "Fifty Shades of Grey." Proceed with caution!
Fans are expecting a lot of things from the upcoming big screen adaptation of "Fifty Shades of Grey" -- but there's at least one scene from the book we now know won't be in the film.
In a new interview with Variety, director Sam Taylor-Johnson reveals they never even shot the book's infamous tampon scene. "It was never even discussed," she says.
Haven't read the book? Here's the passage in question below ... and yes, it's pretty graphic.
"His breathing is ragged, matching mine. 'When did you start your period, Anastasia?' ... He reaches between my legs and pulls on the blue string and gently takes my tampon out and tosses it into the nearby toilet. Holy f**k. And then he's inside me."
Yeah, probably for the best they left that one out, right?
"On the early draft, there was a sense that there was way too much sex," Taylor-Johnson adds. "The story, of course, is of equal importance. We tried to balance the narrative correctly, so one doesn't feel like it's drowning the other. It's the buildup that's interesting. I feel that in movies, the minute there's penetration, it's all over."
Of course, there will still be quite a few kinky scenes in the film, which required star Jamie Dornan to become comfortable with a whip.
"I wasn't talented at it. But I got there in the end. It's really like fly fishing," the actor says of playing Christian Grey. "I learned all sorts of tricks that will support me through my life."
Dornan also isn't ready for the entire word to see his O-face.
"It's the worst thing imaginable. The idea of a million people seeing that," he tells Variety. "I hope it happens quite fast."
