Orange Is the New Black Sex Scene: Cast Members Dish on What It’s Like (VIDEO)
Orange Is the New Black is not a show that shies away from showing sex. Nudity is commonplace, both in the prison and in flashbacks. So, what's it like to film such racy scenes? Two Orange Is the New Black actors who are intimately familiar with the process — Samira Wiley (Poussey) and Matt McGorry (Bennett) — recently dished about it on HuffPo Live.
"It was my first sex scene, first nude scene," Samira explains of her oh-so-steamy backstory hookup. "I think I was worried about what my parents were going to think and all that stuff. But in terms of preparing for it, on set they make you feel so comfortable, so safe. Me and my scene partner, we just had a great time. It wasn't difficult. It definitely wasn't sexy, it felt kind of mechanical."
As she pointed out, she was also dealing with speaking a different language the whole time. That meant she didn't even have time to get into her own head or freak out about it.
Meanwhile,Matt McGorry is stuck doing sex scenes in closets and on desks. "You gotta improvise sometimes in prison!" he joked. He also said that while the sex scenes can get awkward, he and Dascha Polanco (Daya) then just laugh about it.
