Let us never forget that “Fifty Shades Of Grey” started as “Twilight” fan fiction that somehow snowballed into a massive erotic novel sensation, which is now headed to the big screen from a major studio movie. While everyone waits to get all hot ‘n bothered by the kinky romance between a businessman and a college graduate (how daring!) it seems there was some stuff that was just too hot to handle.
The “tampon scene,” as it’s referred to, wasn’t even under consideration. “It didn’t make it into the movie,” director Sam Taylor-Johnson told Variety. “It was never even discussed.” Why? Well, as you’ll read in the excerpt from the book below (via Nylon) the scene is particularly graphic, and let’s just say a transition to the multiplex might’ve been tricky.
The unbelievably, hilariously poor writing aside, it’s pretty self-explanatory why the screenwriters and filmmakers balked at including this moment. But if you really do need to see it, that’s what the internet is for. Someone decided to cheekily recreate the scene through the magic of “The Sims,” and you can watch it below. After that, check out the NSFW music video for The Weeknd‘s “Earned It” featuring Dakota Johnson hanging from ropes and not wearing much, plus a new TV spot.
“Fifty Shades Of Grey” arrives on February 13th.
