Jamie Dornan had to master a lot of techniques in order to play the dominant Christian Grey in ‘Fifty Shades Of Grey.’ One of those techniques, using a whip, he didn’t exactly master right away — check out what he said about the kinky experience!
We would pay good money to watch Jamie Dornan learn how to use a whip! But since we can’t, we have settled for hearing about the experience first hand!
Jamie Dornan On ‘Fifty Shades Of Grey’s’ Whip: How He Mastered The Technique
“There’s probably a technique to using a whip. I wasn’t talented at it,” Jamie told our sister site, Variety, “But I got there in the end. It’s really like fly fishing.”
Sam Taylor-Johnson, the director of the film, had to step in and help Jamie with his lacking whip skills. “Jamie, how can you make something so straight forward so hard?” she would ask him on set.
“I think there was a bit of rope burn. I’d have to remind Jamie to hold back with the crop,” she said — so funny! Judging from the steamy trailers, we are certain that Jamie ended up mastering the technique allowing him to fully get into character.

A whip wasn’t the only prop that Jamie had to work with on set. During his interview, Jamie talked about a crotch “satchel” that he had to wear.
“They were privy everything, just not my manhood,” Jamie explained. “It’s like one of those little satchels that Robin Hood or someone of that era would have tied onto his belt. There’s no back. It’s tiny . . . I mean, it’s not tiny! Because it’s got to hold a lot.”
Um, did he just call his “package” small but then corrected himself by calling it big? Love it!
