Richard Madden loves the “rawness” of gay sex scenes, says “It’s electric! It’s exciting!”

“Sex scenes are never fun to shoot but I only ever do these things if there’s a real justification for them.

This is the first time Elton ever had sex with anyone so that’s why it’s a relevant scene, in terms of his progression… It’s as true to fact as we could be with where it happened, how it happened, and when it happened.

The rawness of that experience, the fear of that experience, but also the joy of the experience of Elton’s first kiss… It’s electric! It’s exciting! Your stomach is doing somersaults!”Richard Madden speaking to The Sun about filming the gay sex scenes in “Rocketman.”
