Benedict Cumberbatch Talks Sherlock's Sex Technique & It's Basically Erotica

Well. I... Hmm. Yeah. Benedict Cumberbatch has officially thought about Sherlock Holmes' sex technique too much. He's been playing the character for three seasons on BBC, and I feel pretty comfortable saying after this... revealing interview with Elle UK that... yeah, he's thought about this too much. When asked about what it'd be like to have sex with Sherlock, Cumberbatch went into... a level of detail that was entirely unexpected. He's got some ideas.

The answer starts out technical:

He also notes that Sherlock would watch a lot of porn to prepare, as research, and that he'd "shave, um, areas" to fit whatever trend was happening at the time.

Are you ready for the rest of this? This is where things get... yeah:


Benedict, hun, you are going above and beyond the line of duty for this answer...

To be clear, because I am still bemused by this: Benedict Cumberbatch actually said these words! In fact, he said even more of them! He goes on! You can read the rest over at Elle. He talks about going wild. So. Yeah.

Could this easily just be shameless pandering to his demographic? Surely. Do I care? Not really. The only thing that would have put this more up his demographic's alley is if John Watson was involved.
