A FEW years ago, Michelle Borth went topless for a movie, and she thought: “That’s it. That’s my last topless scene.”

Then she read the script for the new HBO show “Tell Me You Love Me.” The show required frontal nudity and such explicit sex scenes that the first question asked at a press conference with television critics last July was:

“Did anybody actually do it?”

The answer was no, but Ms. Borth, who plays Jamie in “Tell Me,” is not faulting anyone for wondering.

YourTango’s Take

We’re having Haley Joel Osment flashbacks, ‘his love is real, but he is not.’ The emotions are real, but the sex is not. The emotions aren’t real either, we guess. You know this ‘acting’ stuff is a little tricky. We wonder if they ever ‘accidentally’ have sex in these programs. You know a couple of kids are out there, naked, maybe they’ve got a few rounds of liquid courage in their bellies and they’re really into this passionate scene and WHAM sex happens. The lighting and presence of a camera crew may take some of the romance out of it. But how do single (or married) actors (and actresses) not get caught up the passion of these scenes? We’re not sure where we're going with all this, but we’ll just say if you’re looking for some sweet nude-y action and feel guilty about buying porn or renting Porkies, this is a pretty good substitute.
