YOU WANT YOUR MTV, AND PARAMOUNT+ HAS IT

Will 'Fifty Shades Of Grey' Include The Notorious Tampon Scene?

The answer will either disappoint or relieve you.

By now, you've probably heard about that scene from "Fifty Shades of Grey." You know the one we're talking about. YOU KNOW. We don't even have to say it out loud for you to know the scene in question.

...But yeah, okay, just for the record: It's the one where Christian Grey, sadistic bajillionaire, yanks a tampon out of Anastasia Steele's body in order to have sex with her, because far be it from Christian Grey to let some stupid little cotton cylinder occupy the rightful place of his mighty penis.

MTV News already asked the obvious, most important question over the summer: Should the "Fifty Shades of Grey" movie include this infamous moment? And while that question remains unanswered -- we are still all wildly debating whether or not the filmmakers should include said tampon-removing -- an official statement from the director has resolved any question about whether they did.

Spoiler alert: They didn't.

In an interview with Variety, director Sam Taylor-Johnson revealed that the tampon scene didn't even get put to a vote.

"It didn’t make it into the movie," Taylor-Johnson said. "It was never even discussed."

This is likely disappointing news to hardline fans of the "Fifty Shades" trilogy (although some of us, e.g. me, are probably glad to hear that we won't be seeing that moment onscreen. Just reading about it makes me feel like my reproductive organs are trying to flee upward into my body and hide behind my liver, where they're safe.)

However, there's also a promising quote in the same report from producer Michael De Luca, who explicitly mentioned the "miracle" of Jamie Dornan's performance in one of the most intense scenes that they did film, in which Ana asks Christian to do his worst so that she can understand what she's actually gotten herself into.

"He really gets carried away in the moment," De Luca said.

And author E.L. James, who wrote the book that plunged the world into "Fifty Shades"-obsessed madness, had some comforting words for anyone who fears that the jump from page to screen has taken the, uh, meat out of its racy, outrageous plot:

"I'm pretty sure the millions of fans who have the read the trilogy will think there is enough sex."

Which is very reassuring! Unless you happen to believe that when it comes to the bedroom shenanigans of Christian Grey, there's no such thing as "enough sex."

"Fifty Shades Of Grey" hits theaters on February 13.
