Another viewers said: “Watching Normal People on BBC1 and *that* sex scene came on just as my dad walked into the room #awkward.”

A third person wrote: "I will have to pack my bags and move continents after watching that scene with my parents! I was not prepared for that in the slightest.”

And a fourth quipped: “Oh my god. I had to get up and walk out of the room. My mother was loving it!".

The intimacy co-ordinator who worked on the adaption of Sally Rooney’s hit novel set in Ireland has revealed how the show’s many sex scenes were filmed.

Speaking on Brendan O’Connor's Radio 1 RTE show, Ita O’Brien said: “If you’re doing an intimate scene, the fundamental rule is never ever should their genitalia touch.

“You’ll have the actress wearing a modesty patch and the gentleman wearing a modesty pouch.”

She continued: “What we have in place is the actors are empowered and they have the autonomy to halt the action when filming an intimate scene.

“The actor will have a safe word to halt the action and share it with the crew, and if anything happens through the take that isn’t comfortable or they need to take a break they need to call out to halt the action themselves.”

The BBC Three show has become a smash hit with a loyal following and has been downloaded over 23 million times.
