It’s about to get pretty steamy around here. Let’s be honest, if you watched even a single episode of the BBC series Sherlock — starring Benedict Cumberbatch — you have probably already fantasized about the titular character in some indiscreet scenarios.
Seriously, who hasn’t? Man alive, Cumberbatch is good enough to eat with a spoon!
Considering that Sherlock Holmes in the series is depicted as a rather asexual being — he remains abstinent to stay focused on his work — it’s difficult to even imagine the character (not Cumberbatch, obviously) in a sexual situation. Well, the mystery is about to be dissolved, because Elle U.K. actually coerced Cumberbatch into theorising about Sherlock’s bedroom moves in a recent interview for their December issue and it is saucy. Like, very saucy.
“He’s asexual for a purpose, not because he doesn’t have a sex drive, but because it’s suppressed to do his work. Cold showers, looking at a lot of dead bodies… that’ll do it for you,” the actor begins, before the interviewer asks pointblank what Sherlock would be like in bed. Here we go, ladies!
“You know I’d get the, I’d probably test the latex, if it involved prophylactics, beforehand,” he said. “I would probably watch a lot of porn…”
Continuing, “And then I would be devastating. I’d know exactly how to please a woman, I’d know exactly where to put my fingers, where to put my tongue, where to put my — his I should say — his fingers, his tongue. Think about violinists, think about what they can do with their fingers.”
He’s not even done yet! If you need a break to towel off or drink some water, this is your opportunity. Meanwhile, Cumberbatch continued:
“And I’d know exactly how to get that person into it, and get pleasure out of making that person feel pleasure to the point that I probably wouldn’t even have to enter…” adding, “But when I did it would be explosive.”
Dead. We are all dead and have gone to fantasy heaven. Sweet baby Zeus! Where did all of this come from? It was like perusing an erotic novel written by Cumberbatch. Not that we’re complaining, it’s just a little hot in here and our vision is blurry. Sadly, we will most likely never see a love scene with Sherlock in it, but can Cumberbatch leak a sex tape or something? What did you think of the interview?
