Demi Lovato shared some news on Instagram Tuesday night: they filmed their first-ever sex scene.

“I thought about how proud I am for being able to feel comfortable enough in my skin to do that,” the singer, who recently came out as non-binary and uses the “they/them” pronouns, continued. “I rarely ever showed my arms before… now I’m in this!!”

Lovato admitted in the post that the sex scene “barely shows anything” but admits it wasn’t about that – they saw it as a step forward in being body positive towards themselves.

“I don’t always feel good in my skin, so when I do, AND I feel sexy enough to post – I do just that!” Lovato concluded in their post. “It’s important to celebrate the little wins. Yay for this random burst of body confidence and yay for awkward hilarious sex.”

The “Confident” singer did the sex scene for their upcoming NBC comedy series “Hungry,” which follows a group of friends who belong to a food-issues group that are looking for love. Along with executive producing, Lovato plays Teddy, according to Deadline, a food stylist who is in search of a good relationship with food and men.

Lovato is busy these days. They will also be hosting their own talk show, “The Demi Lovato Show,” on Roku beginning July 30 and is currently working on a limited series for Peacock investigating UFOs titled “Unidentified with Demi Lovato.”
