“Discussions don’t always take place,” he told Radio Times, reflecting on the production’s lack of dialogue around the intimate scenes.

“Some directors don’t know what to say. There can be an uncomfortable atmosphere. No one wants to say or do the wrong thing. Sometimes that means things are not being discussed properly. It is avoided and the situation flies away.

“You want everyone to feel comfortable. If they are not, sometimes they do not speak and then things are not heard. These scenes can be tricky. You just wonder why it took so long [to have these experts on set]».

When asked what makes tackling sex scenes’ tricky ‘, the Irish actor replied,’ It depends on the scene, but some can be more aggressive or unwanted.

“Everyone has their own experiences with such things and in their own personal lives.

“You don’t know what someone comes on the scene with. It’s not always the best approach to assume that your own story is the same as everyone’s. I think having someone to anchor this situation is great.

He also revealed that he has yet to work with an intimacy trainer, despite his extensive experience on set.

Occasionally, intimacy coaches are employed during production to make stars feel comfortable and safe when performing onscreen sexual moments.

He confirmed that there were scenes of a sexual nature in Amazon Prime’s upcoming show Leonardo, but not enough to warrant the use of an advisor on set.

Aidan plays the artist of the Italian Renaissance in the highly anticipated series, which will detail the painter’s life.

There has long been a debate over whether the painter was gay, a theme that should be explored in the show.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Leonardo will “unlock the mystery” behind the genius of Da Vinci and explore a tantalizing secret in his life.

Born in 1452, Leonardo is one of the greatest figures of the last millennium, known primarily for his contributions to the art world, including paintings like the Mona Lisa and The Last Supper.

During the Renaissance, he studied invention, painting, sculpture, architecture, science, music, mathematics, engineering, literature, anatomy, geology, astronomy , botany, writing, history and cartography.

The artist left no clue about his own sexuality. He never married and it cannot be said for sure that he had intimate sex with a person, male or female.

Despite this, speculation about his sexuality has long been debated and it has long been claimed that he was in a homosexual relationship with his apprentice, Gian Giacomo Caprotti, better known by his nickname Salai.

It is believed that Caprotti entered Da Vinci’s house when he was around 10 years old, and worked as his assistant for the next 20 years, acquiring the nickname Salai, or Little Devil.

Salai was used in a number of paintings by Da Vinci as a model and it has even been suggested that Salai was the subject of his most famous painting, the Mona Lisa.

Art detective Silvano Vinceti said the portrait, which hangs in the Louvre in Paris, is a fusion of a Florentine merchant’s wife and Da Vinci’s possible gay lover.

Vinceti, head of a research group called the National Committee for Cultural Heritage, based his findings on an infrared examination of the famous painting.

“Leonardo is constantly surprising and despite his fame, he remains an enigma more than 500 years after his death.

“We have uncovered sometimes unnoticed clues about Leonardo’s life and put them together in a puzzle that attempts to reveal the humanity behind the genius. “
