Russell Tovey opens up about filming gay sex scenes with straight guys

Russell Tovey has opened up about filming gay sex scenes with straight guys.

The 33-year-old gay British actor has said he finds it easier shooting same-sex love scenes with another gay man, where there is less responsibility to ‘look after them’.

‘It’s easier doing those scenes with another gay man than it is a straight man,’ he told Heat. 

”The same way I feel fine doing sex scenes with a woman.

”When I’m doing a sex scene with an actor who is straight, I feel a huge sense of responsibility not to feel like I’m taking advantage or anything.

”Like, I’ll only touch their balls if it says so in the script.’

Tovey also admitted to being conscious of his appearance during his raunchy scenes for ‘Looking’.

‘I keep the bush low, trim the chest hair and I like to get the nipples more erect, so I’ll tweak them a bit too,’ he revealed. ‘Erect nipples add so much to a scene I think.

”I do worry about how I’m going to look in screen-grabs and GIFS. You know it’s going to happen.’
