Barnes: 'I would prefer nude sex scenes'

Rex Features

Ben Barnes has said that he finds it awkward shooting romantic sex scenes when he's not completely naked.

The actor said he would prefer to strip off nude rather than wear a "contraption" over his genitalia.

"Do you know why it's impossible to have any dignity [in sex scenes]?" he told Absolute Radio.

"Because usually you're wearing some sort of ridiculous contraption to protect your modesty. It would just be so much better if it wasn't there at all."

Explaining further the instrument used to cover him up, Barnes said: "[It's] a sort of beige... cod-piece that's sort of taped to you and there's absolutely no way of maintaining your dignity under those circumstances."

When asked about kissing Jessica Biel in his new film Easy Virtue, he commented: "Do you know what? People always say to you sex scenes are not sexy because everyone's watching and blah, blah blah... [but] you can't pretend that kissing Jessica Biel is a bad thing. You just can't."
