Actress, Samira Wiley has become yet another cast member to open up about sex scenes and "Orange Is the New Black."

Last month, "OITNB" actress, Yael Stone talked about being a virgin when she filmed her first sex scene at the age of 15, years before being cast on the hit Netflix show.

"A lot of times we create roles and their experiences we haven't had but we have to imagine it. I happened to do that as a young 15-year-old person," Stone told HuffPost Live.

Fast-forward to now, Stone described filming "OITNB" sex scenes as a "privilege."

"The sex scenes are also a privilege, and we have to see it that way," she said. "'If it's written by great people -- these people that write the show are really smart, we can trust them -- I do feel like those scenes are really necessary. It's a big part of (prison) life."

Though Stone's outlook on sex on "OITNB" is positive, her cast mate, Samira Wiley, is saying otherwise.

During an interview with her co-stars Matt McGorry (corrections officer John Bennett) and Alysia Reiner (assistant warden Natalie Figueroa) on HuffPost Live, Wiley revealed that her first time filming a sex scene was on her current show "Orange is the New Black" and that filming it was "mechanical" and "not sexy."

"It was my first sex scene, first nude scene that I'd done. I think I was worried about what my parents were going to think," Wiley told HuffPostLive's Alyona Minkovski.

The sex scene episode that Wiley is referring to is on Episode 6 of Season 2 of "Orange is the New Black." The episode is called "You Also Have a Pizza," and in that episode, fans are given a look at Wiley's character, Poussey's life prior to life behind bars.

During the episode, Poussey falls in love with another girl while living with her father on an army base in Germany.

Though Wiley did not have the best time filming a fully nude sex scene on the show, she later admitted that, in the end, she was "happy with the result."

"It wasn't difficult. It definitely wasn't sexy. It felt very mechanical on set. But I'm happy with the result."

All 13 episodes of "Orange Is the New Black" are currently up on Netflix. Have you been watching?
