BRIDGERTON'S Phoebe Dynevor revealed her solo sex scene was the "hardest" to shoot and admitted her raunchy scene left her "vulnerable".
The actress, 25, says she felt "very vulnerable" during her sex scenes with co-star Rege-Jean Page, who plays the Duke of Hastings.
However, the masturbation scene was the "most difficult" for Phoebe, who plays Daphne Bridgerton, but says all the racy scenes were performed like stunts.
Phoebe told Glamour: "That was the hardest scene to shoot. That's saying something, because there were a lot of difficult scenes to shoot.
"You feel very vulnerable in those scenes. We did the intimate scenes like stunts – we blocked them out, so you have yoga balls in between you and all sorts of things that never make you feel exposed in any way.
"You always feel safe. I'd rehearse with Rege so much that we both knew what we were doing. It felt very practical.
"But on my own, it's a different thing. The stage directions are very specific: You have to [perform having] an orgasm.
"It's a difficult thing to rehearse, which means you don't. You just do it."
However, she credited the show's intimacy coordinator Lizzy Talbot for making her feel more comfortable.
She continued: "I think it would have been a very difficult experience if Lizzy hadn't been on set protecting me and looking after me. No one wants to be told how to perform an orgasm [on set] by a man."
Bridgerton has quickly become one of the jewels in Netflix's crown, with a second series already being commissioned.
It follows the lives of the Bridgerton family and their eldest daughter Daphne, played by Phoebe.
They find their lives turned upside down by the anonymous gossip columnist Lady Thistledown, who starts spreading rumours about them all over London.
The new run, which will not air for months, will focus on Anthony Bridgerton's search for a wife.
