"O" what a revelation! 

"Sex and the City" actress Cynthia Nixon revealed a dirty fun fact about all those sex scenes in a recent interview with "IMDB Asks." Turns out, they were real! Or at least, were based on real stories. 

"They had a rule in the writing that they couldn't put anything in an episode that didn't literally happen to someone in the writer's room or someone they knew firsthand," said Nixon to IMDB. "It couldn't be, like, my father's brother's sister's shoe repair guy heard once that, you know. So the outlandish physical, sexual things that happened -- they really did happen."

We're just as shocked as you are, Charlotte. 

So this (and like 5 million other sex scenes) actually happened? AHHHHH.
