12 Mainstream Movies Where The Actors Really Did it

Usually, graphic love acts depicted in movies can be too transgressive even though they are often simulated with tricks; pillows between themselves, prosthetics and body stockings. Actors also do fake push-ups to get their muscles swelling out with an improvised movement.

However, not all steamy scenes are stimulated. In some scenes, actors actually perform the real deeds that seems like a bad adult content videos.
