All those hot and heavy sex scenes on ABC’s steamy “Scandal,” well it doesn’t feel so hot when you are actually under the sheets.

Tony Goldwyn was on the set of Bravo’s “Watch What Happens: Live,” and got candid about how erotic his scenes with co-star Kerry Washington on the show actually were.

“Well, if you think about doing a sex scene with 30 overweight men staring at you, it’s hot,” Goldwyn told host Andy Cohen on the show.

However, he said the sex scenes were even worse when he was also a director for an episode, detailing an instance where he had to tell Washington, “This is where I bend you over the table.” He added, “It was kind of embarrassing.”

What does his wife think of his on-air romance?

“The honest answer is that my wife doesn’t watch it,” he said. “She watched the pilot and thought it was great, but I don’t encourage it.”

His daughters, on the other hand, find it “disgusting and hilarious.”
