Playboy might be getting rid of the nudity, but they're definitely not getting rid of the masturbation talk in their 20 Questions feature. Case in point, an interview with Daniel Radcliffe that explains the difficulty of trying to rub one out on the set of the Harry Potter films.
Keep in mind, Radcliffe was making those movies from the around the age of 12 to 20, which, as any dude knows, are the prime masturbation years.
You spent all your teenage years making the Harry Potter movies. For most teenage boys, their lives revolve around finding a chance to masturbate. Is there time for that on a movie set?
Yeah, I was like every other teenager in that sense. My favorite line about masturbation is Louis C.K.’s, something like “I found out about it when I was 11, and I didn’t skip a day.” I think I started very early—before my teens. But not when I was on set. I wasn’t going, When is Alan Rickman going to nail this scene so I can run back to my trailer? There’s another feeling, again perfectly described by Louis C.K.: that fear just after you’ve jerked off that everyone knows what you did. It would have been embarrassing to walk back on set and look the dignitaries of British acting royalty in the eye, knowing what I’d been doing.
You know, if Harry Potter happened in the real world, there'd definitely be a spell for taking care of that.
