Patrick and Richie’s latest bedding was one for the ages! Find out what Jonathan had to say about the behind-the-scenes awkwardness.

Looking fans have enjoyed watching Patrick (Jonathan Groff) and Richie (Raúl Castillo) explore their relationship during the HBO series’ first season, and the word “explore” was never more appropriate than on the show’s Feb. 16 episode. Was it a hot scene? Yes. Was it also an awkward scene? Most definitely.

“You can’t lie in those scenes,” Jonathan recently told E! Online at the Savannah College Art and Design’s aTVfest. “You can’t fake those scenes.”

‘Looking’ Sex Scene — Patrick & Richie’s Latest Romp

Jonathan is, of course, referring to one of the episode’s first scenes, which found Patrick back in bed with Richie after deciding there was no way he could go to work and leave his boyfriend all alone. Things escalated quickly, with Richie going downtown — clever camerawork, by the way — and bringing Patrick to, shall we say, climax? (Wait, that actually wasn’t a euphemism. He climaxed.)

Anyway, Patrick dropped a lot of f-bombs and c-bombs — not that c-bomb, the other one — before eventually completing his mission. Patrick and Richie later had a discussion about spitting vs. swallowing, but after what we’d just witnessed, we were barely paying attention to what they said afterwards.

While Jonathan is no stranger to simulating sex acts — he co-starred opposite Lea Michele in the racy Broadway musical Spring Awakening, for starters — it must have been super-awkward to film, especially with director Reed Morano literally in bed with him and Raul.

“We were in bed, and there she was in bed, capturing what was happening,” Jonathan explained. “She said, ‘This is the hottest sex scene I’ve ever experienced shooting.’”

Somehow, that doesn’t surprise us.

This episode struck me as so very real. The conversation, the awkward moments, it all felt like scenes from my own life. There’s an instant depth and intimacy on many levels between gay men and this episdoe captured that perfectly.

Why American people insist on not putting the diacritics on foreign names? Like Alexander’s Skasgård and Raúl Castillo? How difficult it is to write Raúl instead of Raul? Almost every western language but English have them!

Awesome episode tonight, it went by really fast. Still can’t believe Patrick is more of a top though. I can’t wait to see what goes down next week
