I talked to both actors involved, made sure they were okay with it, and then
scripted it out in very detailed form, and shot with a closed set, just
necessary crew, nobody else.

(Funny item: in the script, I'm right in the middle of describing the sex
scene, and in the narrative description, I write, without even thinking about
it, "I wonder which is more embarrassing, reading this or writing it?" It goes
out that way.)
