Ricky Martin has opened up about his very first on-screen sex scenes.

The Latino popstar is starring in a new drama telling the story of Versace’s assassination.

Martin plays Gianni Versace’s longtime partner Antonio D’Amico in The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story.

While he’s used to thrusting his stuff in pop videos, the singer said getting his kit off entirely was a very different experience.

“I thought I was going to be more uncomfortable,” he told Entertainment Weekly.

“The exhibitionism kicked in for a moment and all of a sudden I was naked in bed in front of 20 people from the crew and another actor I met that same day.

“I was not nervous at all. On the contrary, I was ready to do what needed to be done.”

Famed fashion designer Versace was assassinated on the steps of his Miami Beach mansion in 1997 by serial killer Andrew Cunanan.

Martin said the themes of homophobia and public intrusion struck a chord with him.

He told the magazine: “It’s a story that needs to be told.

“We’re going to go mainstream with a story that talks about homophobia, that talks about hate, that talks about indifference.

“I feel humbled. It’s so raw and honest and so dramatic and sad.

“But at the same time you show the love of Gianni and Antonio and 15 years of struggling, fighting.

“It’s something that I really wanted to be loud about,” he said.

The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story airs on FX in the US.
