ROYAL SMUT

The King’s Speech Was Filmed On A Gay Porn Set

When the Academy nominated The King’s Speech for Best Art Direction, they probably didn’t know that one of the film’s key settings was also the location of a shoot for UK Naked Men, a porn studio “featuring hung, uncut and horny naked men having great sex.”

Most of The King’s Speech takes place in the sparse, run-down consulting room of Australian speech therapist Lionel Logue. According to the film’s production designer Eve Stewart, the crew shot inside 33 Portland Place, a building with “an unusual vaulted room with large leaded windows at one end, reminiscent of a Venetian palace, and roof lights that make it look a bit like an artist’s studio… [it] also has extraordinary walls, decorated in distressed browns and oranges like an exotic damaged fresco.”

QueerClick (NSFW) ran a side-by-side comparison of screen shots from the movie and promotional stills from UK Naked Men and made note of the similar windows, skylights, and walls. They also rhetorically wondered, “Did [actor Geoffrey] Rush taste the faint hint of semen and man-pussy in the air and think, ‘Ahhhhh! History!’?” I’m guessing … no.

But just like like the critically acclaimed film, the gay smut filmed on the same location definitely carries some throat-y storylines.
