No reason to skeet around the bush: this is list is about celebrity parents who watch their famous kids' sex scenes (or, in a few cases, were explicitly banned from doing so, then talked a lot about it). If you've ever watched sex scenes on TV or in movies with your parents, you know it's not the most comfortable experience. Now imagine watching your own sex scene with your folks. Fingers crossed it isn't the kind of scene during which one of your lines of dialogue is "Daddy?" Holy mother of naughtiness that would be filthy. 

Everyone loves sex scenes in films. Well, okay, not everyone. But most people do. Why not? Everyone has sex. Where do you think all seven billion human inhabitants of this testicle-shaped planet came from? Deep dishin' sausage in a fuzzy taco, amigo. Garnish it with some hand-cranked cream sauce. But the thing is, everyone has parents. So every time you see two celebs firing up the pork pistols and opening up some juicy clams, you're watching someone's child get full hog naughty. 

You might expect the parents of celebrities to avoid watching movies or shows in which their kids fill a quiver with erotic delights, string up a bow of unbridled depravity, and let the lascivious arrows fly, but that isn't always the case. On this list, celebrity parents talk about their kids' sex scenes, or kids share experiences of watching or discussing sex scenes with their parents. In some cases, parents were on set, even giving notes, while the simulated boning went down.

When Emilia Clarke's parents complained her character, Daenerys Targaryen, wasn't getting enough screen time during Season 6 of Game of Thrones, the actress sat them down to watch a big episode for her, in which her character emerges, sans clothing, from a burning temple. 

Clarke told Live! With Kelly she instantly regretted her viewing party. "My dad was like, 'Again?'"

Before Fifty Shades of Grey came out, Melanie Griffith told IndieWire that her daughter, Shades star Dakota Johnson, prohibited her from seeing the movie. If only the rest of us were also banned. As it turns out, Griffith had little interesting in seeing the movie to being with. In a pre-Oscars interview, Johnson said her mother could "maybe" watch the film "one day," while Griffith said it'd be too awkward. Mommy doesn't need to see baby tied up and spanked by a Northern Irish sex beast. 

A year after the film had been released, Griffith admitted to watching bits and pieces, but not the bone scenes. She explained to reporters, "Would you want to see your child having sex like that? Just regular sex, I couldn't do that. But the 'room of pain' sex? I definitely couldn't do that!"

Fair enough. Don Johnson, how do you feel? Your name, after all, is only one letter shy of "Dong Johnson".

Sure, the idea of sitting down on the sofa with your dad so he can watch the apple of his eye get her salad tossed like a dinghy in a Category 5 hurricane might make you want to crawl into a hole and die, but not everyone is so squeamish. In fact, some might even say parents encouraging children to explore acts of potentially limitless pleasure that are taboo by mainstream sheeple standards is probably healthy, even if it's a uncomfortable to have a daddy-daughter chat about the rim reaper. 

While filming the first season of Girls, Allison Williams lived with her parents, and they watched the show together. She noted to Anderson Cooper that her family is very close-knit, and her parents understand she's only acting. When Allison's father, famous news anchor Brian Williams, was asked about his reaction to the steamy scenes, he responded, "Unmitigated joy." What a naughty daddy. 

Here's hoping that's sarcasm.

Margot Robbie is listed (or ranked) 4 on the list Here's How Parents Of Celebrities Felt Watching Their Famous Kids' Sex Scenes

Margot Robbie was virtually unknown before Wolf of Wall Street. Her deliciously filthy performance in that film announced her, with a bang (literally), as a major talent in Hollywood, while permanently depositing her image, with compounded interest, in the spank banks of pervs worldwide. 

Before The Wolf of Wall Street was released, Robbie went with a strategy most of us have employed with our parents: she straight up lied, telling her small-town Australian fam she wasn't doing any nudity, and that any rumors they heard to the contrary were false. 

Realizing this wasn't the best long-term plan, Robbie then tried to ease the awkwardness by telling them the scenes were CGI.  She told Jimmy Kimmel:

"I changed that to 'It's actually a body double and they just CGI'd my head onto someone else.' And my family doesn't have anything to do with the entertainment industry... and they were like, 'They can do that? And I was like, 'Oh, technology these days. You wouldn't believe what they do in Hollywood!'"

Robbie eventually came, and came clean, telling her family to read the book on which the film is based to determine whether or not they wanted to see the movie.
