Demi Lovato opens up about the hilarious, somewhat embarrassing, scary, but overall positive experience they had while filming their first sex scene. The singer and actor described what happened in an Instagram post on July 20 as they celebrated the monumental moment on the set of NBCBC Hungry.

“Had to do a sex scene today. My first!” Lovato has subtitled a photo of herself in lingerie. Although they were “a little scared”, the professionalism of the cast and crew helped them feel instantly calm. “I thought about how proud I am of being comfortable enough with myself to do that,” Lovato continued. “I’ve never shown my arms before .. now I’m there !! (Admittedly, it hardly shows anything, BUT STILL).”

Lovato, who recently turned out to be non-binary, often talks about how they feel loyal and comfortable about themselves. This first sex scene represents personal progress that they are proud of. “I don’t always feel good about myself, so when I do AND I feel sexy enough to post – that’s what I do!” They said. “It’s important to celebrate the little victories. Yay for that random burst of body confidence and yay for awkward, hilarious sex.”
