The stars of the movie weighed in on what it was like to film the steamy sex scenes. According to "Today" Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson’s daughter called the movie sex magic acrobatics, “It’s more about visually what our bodies look like and what we’re doing, so it’s more like a dance.” Dornan explained, “The reality of it is that there’s a burly man you don’t know very well three feet from our face…which isn’t how you usually have sex – not me anyway.”
