Lea Michele on being a sex scene virgin

Despite the lackluster response some fans have had towards "Glee" lately, there's still plenty of anticipation for Tuesday's episode.

Two of McKinley High's favorite couples - Rachel Berry and Finn, as well as Kurt Hummel and Blaine - are "going all the way," if we were to put it in grade school terminology. (Two parents groups have already spoken out against the episode for portraying teen sex, Entertainment Weekly reports.)

CNN caught up with Lea Michele, who plays the super overachiever Rachel, at Glamour magazine's 21st annual Women of the Year awards, and she revealed that she and co-star Cory Monteith (Finn) had a pretty steamy time filming the scene.

"We were sitting around a fire place. Cory was hot, I was hot," Michele, 25, recalls. "It's not as sexy as it looks, but I adore him, he is mine. I am so lucky that I get to play opposite him and work with him."

It turns out that Michele's experience filming sex scenes is on par with her character's sexual history. Monteith, she says, is "gorgeous and he’s so kind and he made me so comfortable, you know? I think he did some sci-fi movie back in the day where he had some sex scene, so this wasn’t his first. But I was a virgin, as you could say, and so he made me really comfortable."

We always knew Monteith was a gentleman.

    It wasn't televised or filmed, but she lost her virginity 8 times a week (with partial nudity, even) 8 times a week while she starred in Spring Awakening.
