‘Orange Is The New Black’ Star Reveals Fruity Origins of Handy-J Success

Bennett explains the logistics of his and Daya's closet encounter.

It would be very easy for us to be immature about this, but: “Orange is the New Black” has some tricks up their prison jumper sleeves when it comes to bringing authenticity to the jailed-up drama. Like, say, how to make a faux-handy-J done in secrecy in a closet come to life on your Netflix screen. The trick is utilizing just the right sort of props.

And if you’ve ever been in a middle school sex ed class, their answer shouldn’t surprise you. MTV spoke to Matt McGorry, a.k.a. Bennett, to get the scoop (or should we say peel? No? OK that’s fine), while on the red carpet of Logo TV’s “Trailblazers” special.

I mean, it is a very handy way to utilize craft services, we’ll give them that. But we’re not so sure McGorry should be putting it on his Cheerios afterwards.

“Trailblazers,” a one-hour show honoring pioneers in the fight for LGBT equality will premiere on June 26 at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
