    Regé-Jean Page's "SNL" Opening Monologue Had Everyone Feeling Some Kind Of Way

    Someone get me a glass of water.

    If you've seen Bridgerton, then you're likely more than aware of Duke Simon "You Do Touch Yourself" Basset: Regé-Jean Page.

    He is so attractive, I feel like I cannot look directly at him, and I say that in total sincerity.

    Well, Regé-Jean hosted Saturday Night Live last night, and his opening monologue was, quite frankly, everything most Bridgerton fans dream of: incredibly horny.

    One of my personal favorite moments came when Regé-Jean was trying to convince everyone that he's just a regular ol' incredibly hot guy.

    He said "I'm happy to play the Duke, but I've been around for a while"

    Which led to the moment where my soul left my body:

    You know, like:

    This screenshot admittedly does not do justice to the original.

    It was, in a word, magnificent.

    No thoughts, just Regé-Jean Page saying “I burn for you”🥵 #snl

    In short, I am the woman who screamed "YES!" when Regé-Jean asked this question:

    Regé-Jean said "Does that sound pleasing to you?"
