The sex scenes in Fifty Shades of Grey and Fifty Shades Darker are intensely sexy. Filming them, however...not so much. This isn't a surprise; actors love to remind us that filming sex scenes (opens in new tab) is way more awkward than sexy.

Christian Grey himself, Jamie Dornan, stopped by The Graham Norton Show this week to talk about just how un-sexy things are behind the scenes of the steamy Fifty Shades scenes, according to ET Online (opens in new tab).

"There's probably more sex in it," he said of the sequel. "My temptation is always just to try to make Dakota [Johnson] laugh...When there's a moment when I'm meant to orgasm, I'll be like, 'Doodle-doo dee-doo!'"

You need to hear the "doodle-doo dee-doo" with your own ears to truly appreciate how much Dakota Johnson must have laughed on set.
