Why Mindy Kaling Loves Filming Sex Scenes


Mindy Kaling is keeping it real and letting us know how she feels about filming sex scenes.

The Washington Post obtained an excerpt from her book Why Not Me in which The Mindy Project creator has a chapter titled, "I love sex scenes!"

And she's not joking.

"Obviously onscreen sex is not actual penetrative sex, but, as any religious high schooler will tell you, simulating sex can be pretty damn enjoyable as well," she writes.

She doesn't even mind if crew members are there to watch.

"To that I say, the more, the merrier! Most of those people are artists whose job it is to make sure your physical imperfections are cloaked in mysterious shadows," she continues. "By the end of the shooting day, you'll wish there were more people there."

And for all those who can't believe she actually gets paid to film some fake intimate moments, she addresses that as well.

"People already think acting is the world's easiest and most frivolous job," she says. "So we all have this tacit agreement to keep our traps shut about the world's best job perk."

Talk about employee benefits, right?

Why Not Me is set to be released on September 29.
