Fifty Shades of Grey movie boasts 20 minutes of sex

Fifty Shades of Grey

Story by Jack Foley

THE movie version of Fifty Shades of Grey is said to feature 20 minutes of sex scenes, making it the mainstream film with the most sex to have been released in the past 10 years.

According to the website Mr Skin, which collects data from movies relating to their sexual content, the Sam Taylor-Wood-directed adaptation of E.L. James erotic best-seller contains 12 sex scenes in all.

The scenes in question, which are said to include bondage, helped secure the film an 18 certificate in the UK – although it has been passed uncut.

Director Taylor-Johnson has, however, been keen to play down the graphic nature of the content, recently telling The Guardian newspaper: “I didn’t want it to be graphically explicit, and I know that’s going to be disappointing to some people. It’s the build up and titillation of touch and sensuality. So, I don’t think it goes into the realm of porn.”

Fifty Shades of Grey stars Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson as Christian Grey and his lover Anastasia Steele and is due out on February 13.

The movie is among the most anticipated of the year, with the trailer having amassed 250 million views.
