Daniel Radcliffe on Gay Sex: OUCH!

by at . Comments

Daniel Radcliffe portrays Allen Ginsberg in the new film Kill Your Darlings.

And, as part of this role, the beloved Harry Potter star falls in love Dane DeHaan's Lucien Carr, the beat poet's real-life boyfriend back in the day.

What is Radcliffe's take on homosexual love versus heterosexual love?

“I don’t think there’s any difference between how one falls in love," he tells the new issue of Flaunt. "People express love differently, person to person, but it’s not gender or sexuality related. The only difference it made was obviously the actual sex scene, of course.”

Ah, yes, the sex scene.

Radcliffe engages in one in the movie after Ginsberg is rejected by Carr. The character loses his virginity in it.

“I was talked through it by the director [John Krokidas]," Radcliffe says. "He would be telling me what I would be feeling in each take. Basically, gay sex, especially for the first time, is really f-cking painful.”

Off screen, the star is reportedly dating Erin Darke.

But on screen "[Krokidas] said that he had never seen that portrayed accurately before," Radcliffe said of gay sex. "He wanted it to look like an authentic loss of virginity."

Kill Your Darlings hits theaters on October 18. Are you now more or less intrigued about seeing it?
