In a recent chat with Interview magazine, Dakota Johnson, who plays Anastasia Steele in Fifty Shades, admitted that simulating sex all day long is not as hot as you might think:

"It's not ... comfortable. It's pretty tedious."

The 26-year-old actress is currently working on the next two installments of the BDSM saga in Vancouver. She went on:

"We're not having actual sex. But I've been simulating sex for seven hours straight right now, and I'm over it."


But it's no secret that the former Miss Golden Globes 2006 was doubtful about taking on the role of submissive Steele, even before the first Fifty Shades movie came out. She told The Sunday Telegraph last year:

"[I have doubts] the whole time. Even now there are moments when I think, 'What the f*** have I done?"

Even her co-star, Jamie Dornan disclosed that the famous BDSM scenes were not as hot to film as they were to watch (or read). He told Notebook:

"If I was about to be doing something particularly heinous to Dakota, I would apologize in advance and say: 'I'm probably not going to derive a huge amount of pleasure out of this. I want you to know that.'"

Fifty Shades Darker is based on the second novel in the BDSM saga by E.L. James, and is due for release on February 10, 2017. The film also stars Jamie Dornan, reprising his role as Christian Grey. Kim Basinger will be joining the cast as Elena Lincoln, an older woman with whom Grey had an affair when he was very young.

The official trailer for Fifty Shades Darker hasn't dropped yet, but YouTuber JLongbone made this fan version, and it's pretty sexy:

Do you think Fifty Shades Darker will be hot on screen?
