Sarah Paulson Opens Up About AHS Sex Scene

The actress discusses the riskier scenes of Season 3, including the secrets of “snake sex.”

American Horror Story veteran and Emmy nominated actress, Sarah Paulson, stopped by Late Night with Seth Meyers to continue to tease fans about the upcoming season of FX’s anthology horror series.

Paulson, who calls herself “ a professional liar,” did her best to leave us all hanging on her every word as she almost let a little teaser slip out about the two headed woman she’ll be playing on the new season. That is, before she caught herself and said nothing else on the matter.

However, Paulson did go on to talk about show creator, Ryan Murphy, and called him, “the most curious people you could ever meet” who has “an insatiable appetite to know everything he possibly can know about the human experience.”

When it came to seasons past, Paulson was more than happy to chat with Meyers about that not so subtle scene from Coven. You know, the sex scene slash ritual where she lay bare on a wooden floor with a pit of fire surrounding her and snakes slithering whichever way across her body — yeah, that one.

Paulson jokingly chatted about “defanging the snakes,” bonding with said snakes and her pre-performance jitters that lead to a couple of tequila shots — naturally.
