Knowing that trapping a young, attractive group of people on set together for long days (sometimes up to 18 hours) was a recipe for inter-cast intercourse, Glee creator and producer Ryan Murphy says that he instituted one rule: no sex in the trailers. Hmm, maybe if he'd been on the Mr. and Mrs. Smith set, Brad Pitt would still be married to Jennifer Aniston? Heh.
Apparently, hormones are running wild on the Glee set, and some of the actors (no names were named) have broken the on-set rules. Ryan is aware that actors who spend so much together will often develop romances, but he feels that when relationships get too hot and heavy, the actors can get distracted from their work. Basically, he wants to maintain a professional workplace, and a row of rocking trailers outside doesn't exactly add to that image. Which 'Glee' Guy Is Your Type?
Ryan explains to Heat Magazine:
I've certainly dated people I've worked with and, you know, when you work on a set for 18 hours a day I think it's natural. But I have a rule: don't do it in your trailer. They've broken that rule on many occasions. I'm like, 'I know you guys are young and hormonal, but don't do it in your trailer'. I'm the dad, that's what I say'. [Source: Heat, via Telegraph UK]
Ryan's comments come on the heels of rumors that Lea Michele (Rachel) and Matthew Morrison (Mr. Schue) were having an affair (not true) and photographic evidence that Kevin McHale (Artie) and Jenna Ushkowitz (Tina) have taken their on-screen romance off-screen. It's also become pretty apparent that Mark Salling (Puck) and Naya Rivera (Santana) have been having a not-so-secret showmance of their own for quite some time.

Look, we know that rules are rules. But in the actors' defense: if we were stuck on set with Mark Salling all day long, there isn't a lock strong enough that could keep us out of his trailer. And since bisexuality is all the rage these days, we're not afraid to admit that we feel the same way about Naya Rivera.
