If you think watching sex scenes with others is slightly awkward, then may I suggest you wait for the DVD release of Fifty Shades of Grey.

Of course, the big screen adaptation of E.L. James' erotic novel was always going to be saucy, but now it turns out the producers want to make an extra explicit version.

According to Perez, Fifty Shades producer Dana Brunetti hinted we could see two versions of the film being made — an R-Rated and NC-17 version:

What we're kind of hearing from the fans is they want it dirty… they want it as close as possible [to the book.] I always thought it would be really cool if we released the R version and then we had an NC-17 version that we released a few weeks later. Everybody could go and enjoy the R version, and then if they really wanted to see it again and get a little bit more gritty with it then have that NC-17 version out there as well. That is my idea, but the fans and the studio [Universal Pictures] will benefit from the double dip. We do not want this film to be seen as mommy porn - we want to keep it elevated but also give the fans what they want.

So, what does this mean practically? Could Fifty Shades of Grey rival Nymphomaniac: Volume I as the most awkward upcoming movie to watch with your parents?

Personally, I want a version entirely narrated by Charles Dance.

What do you think? Which version would you rather see? It's OK. You can answer freely, no one will judge you here.
