“Orange is the New Black,” the Netflix series about women behind bars, has contained plenty of explicit sex scenes between the characters, as often happens in real prisons. Yael Stone, who plays inmate Lorna Morello, recently said in an interview that she felt it was a privilege to perform the steamy behind bars scenes. Sex, after all, is a big part of prison life and life in general. The scenes were written by great people, she said, and depicts sex in a “realistic” way, with all of the attended awkwardness, unlike what often happens in porno, with the arching backs and the wild orgasms.
Stone is not a stranger to TV sex. The Sydney, Australia born actress’ first sex scene was in a Australian TV miniseries called “The Farm” when she was just 15 and, as she confessed, still a virgin. Her character has a sexual encounter with an older man in the series depicting farm life in New South Wales in the 1980s.
Being a virgin during her first on screen sex scene was, to say the least, something of a strange experience for the 15 year old Stone. She obviously had no real world experience to bring to the scene, though her lack of experience was likely shared with the character.
Of course actors are called upon to do things that they have never done in real life all the time. Indeed it can be noted that none of the women acting in “Orange is the New Black” have served time in a real prison, not to mention had sex in one.
