Demi Lovato is candid about filming their first sex scene.

The 28-year-old singer and actor took Instagram on Tuesday to share a stripped-down selfie while filming their upcoming TV show Hungry. And while Lovato had just introduced their character named Teddy to Instagram followers on their stories, they soon leaned in to share a more intimate behind-the-scenes moment.

“Had to film a sex scene today. My first!” Lovato captioned the photo. “I was a little scared about it, but the cast and crew were so professional and easy to work with, it immediately calmed me down. Then I thought about how proud I am that I feel comfortable enough in my own skin to do that. .”

Lovato, who recently came out as non-binary, has long been open about struggling with eating disorders and finding confidence in their bodies. The show, which stars Valerie Bertinelli as Lovato’s character’s mother, is also about the journey of finding love and success between a group of friends who belong to a food group.

On this particular day on set, confidence was exactly what Lovato felt.

“Rarely have I shown my arms before.. now I’m in this!! (Admittedly, it barely shows, BUT STILL),” they wrote. “I don’t always feel good about myself, so when I do, AND I feel sexy enough to post – I do just that! It’s important to celebrate the small wins. Yay for this random burst of body confidence and yay for uncomfortably hilarious sex.”
