Ahead of the release of Fifty Shades movie sequel Fifty Shades Darker, star Dakota Johnson has admitted she has now “willingly surrendered” herself to the appeal of BDSM and kinky sex toys.
The 27-year-old actress is set to reprise her role as Anastasia Steele in the follow-up to the 2015 bondage-based box office hit.
But while she was previously hesitant about immersing herself too deep into the world of BDSM the first time round, it would appear Johnson has had a change of heart since.
Speaking to Glamour, in quotes published by the Daily Star, Johnson revealed a new found appreciation for the world inhabited by buff fictional BDSM sex maniac and international business magnate Christian Grey.
“Some of that stuff is so beautiful. When we first started on Fifty Shades, that wasn’t a world I was privy to at all, and I soon found out there are all these different tiers.
“There are some things out there that are really grimy and nasty, and there are really beautiful, intricate and chic toys. Actually, whole aspects of the BDSM world are truly beautiful.”
Despite her new found appreciation for dildos, butt plugs and flesh lights (not so sure about that last one) it would appear Johnson is keen to step back from doing quite so many sex scenes. Or at least that is what she says.
“It’s not put me off entirely. But I’m ready to do other stuff,” she told Glamour.
So the next Fifty Shades movie might feature no sex scenes whatsoever? Now that’s fifty shades of fucked up.
