Benedict Cumberbatch Thinks His Sherlock Would Be Dynamite In The Sack

Benedict Cumberbatch thinks his Sherlock Holmes would be amazing in the sack, which seems kind of biased, but I’ll roll with it because YUM:

BC: I’d do a little experiment to do with durability, length, girth, and um, strength. And um, I would probably take a lot of vitamin supplements to make sure that I could perform, and had had my sleep, and probably not had many cigarettes. Or drink, for that matter. Not that he does drink.

ELLE UK: You see. Proficient, but lacking enthusiasm.

BC: Yeah, no wait for it. I would probably watch a lot of porn… I might have to shave, um, areas to fit in with a modern idea of bodily hair. 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. 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, but when I did it would be explosive.

ELLE UK: But does he ever lose control?

BC: So in sex, would he lose control? I think to have really good sex he would probably have to.

ELLE UK: So he’d decide to lose control. He’d make a controlled decision?

BC: This is a very dark alley we’re going down. No pun intended. Um, Yeah. Yeah. If it was necessary yes, yes. Very much so.

There’s something to that, isn’t there? If Sherlock is completely analytical about everything, you’d think he’d come to the experience well-prepared. That being said, the approach didn’t go over so well for Holmes’ stag night, so Cumberbatch may just slightly be overestimating the character.

Still, I’d bone him.
