Daniel Radcliffe can't stop talking about his gay sex scene in Kill Your Darlings.

The 24-year-old Harry Potter alum plays Beat poet Allen Ginsberg in out director John Krokidas's upcoming true-crime drama, which officially opens Oct. 18 in limited release. An outspoken LGBT ally, he tackles both his first gay character and his first gay sex scene in the film.

“I was talked through it by the director," Daniel tells Flaunt magazine, noting that love knows no gender — except where the actual sex is concerned. "He would be telling me what I would be feeling in each take. Basically, gay sex, especially for the first time, is really fucking painful. And [Krokidas] said that he had never seen that portrayed accurately on film before. He wanted it to look like an authentic loss of virginity.”

Dissing Brokeback Mountain's unrealistic portrayal of gay penetration, the director has previously discussed the unmanscaped sex scene, which he believes they "got right for cinematic history."

And just in case you were still unclear, duh — spoiler alert — Dan's the bottom.
