Sex scenes are either the funniest, most risqué, or most boring parts of a film, depending on generally what kind of person you are and how close your mom is to catching what you're watching. But the fact is sex scenes are shot on a set just like any other part of the film (that isn't CGI), and that means real human beings have to pretend to snooch each other on film, while at least a handful of people hold lights, mics, and cameras increasingly close to their often naked and wet bodies. Sounds like the world's most niche fetish (which undoubtedly some actor has), but for all the rest it can be a nightmare. Here are some of the most interesting and weird ways sex works behind the scenes -- and hey, sometimes, the sex on-screen... it's just real. And even if it's not, there might be some other real sex going on behind the screen. For all your sex fact needs, see below.
