Netflix's Sex/life first debuted on June 25, 2021 and fans loved the first season, however, there was one scene in particular that many of us had to watch more than just once...

The show featured a lot of sex scenes, which is unsurprising for a show called Sex/Life. But while some episodes had us all googling the coital alignment technique, one episode, in particular, had us all hitting rewind.

Netflix has revealed that nearly a third of all the viewers of Sex/Life rewound *that* particularly spicy scene at least once while enjoying the show. The streaming site revealed  on Twitter, "The first season was watched by 67 million households—and 20 million of us rewound *that* scene at least once."

Of course, viewers of the show will need no help remembering the scene in question. But for those who have yet to enjoy the show, the most replayed moment took place in season one, episode three, precisely 19 minutes and 57 seconds into the show.

The series focuses on a woman named Billie who is struggling to maintain her marriage with her husband Cooper as she is still fixated on reminiscing about her passionate relationship with a man named Brad.

In episode three, jealousy has got the better of Cooper and after snooping through his wife's diary he decides to stalk her ex-lover. This leads to a scene where Brad and Cooper are both in a communal shower together at a gym.

All seems fairly mundane until Brad turns around and reveals his enormous penis. The camera zooms in and lingers on Brad's package and then crosses back onto Cooper who looks incredibly disappointed.

This scene shocked fans when it was first released and led to many viewers googling if the actor was wearing some kind of prosthetic or whether he was just superbly well-endowed.

Sex/Life showrunner Stacy Rukeyser revealed to Collider, "That's not a body double. I mean, people usually ask is it real or is it a prosthetic?"

"I can tell you what Adam Demos says about it which is, a gentleman never tells. So, we are leaving that up to the viewer's imagination."

The actor who plays Brad, Adam Demos, who was also in another Netflix film, Falling Inn Love, told Entertainment Weekly, that he did not request a body double for his nude shots.

When asked, "So did you request a body double for any shots or were you okay with the nudity? Because you have a full-frontal shower scene in there..."

Adam replied, "I was okay with it because you read the script and know what you're getting yourself into from the start, so I don't think you would sign on to a show after reading the scripts and then say no last minute."

The actor added, "That doesn't mean you can't have discussions about comfort level, which they allowed us to have—and with the intimacy coordinator, so it felt a lot safer."

Netflix's Sex/Life ending shocked fans as the series ended on a cliff hanger with Billie choosing to run back into the arms of her lover.

So many will be delighted to find out that the series will be having a second season. Netflix also revealed in the tweet, "Sex/Life has been renewed for Season 2!"

Netflix has not announced when the second season will be released but fans are excited to find what happens next to the characters in this passionate love triangle.
