Julian McMahon loves filming the sex scenes in cosmetic surgery drama NIP/TUCK because they are so realistic.

The actor, who plays CHRISTIAN TROY in the hit series, used to hate simulating sex for the camera and found nudity embarrassing but Nip/Tuck has changed all that.

He says, "I love the way we use sex in Nip/Tuck.

"In the same way we use the surgery. It's very explicit, raw and aggressive and they don't pull back on it. It's served us well."

He also credits the scenes with boosting his own love life, "I spend most of the time in it (Nip/Tuck) naked and having sex. Now I get people running up and grabbing my a*s."
