Her sex scenes with Laura Prepon are some of the steamiest on television, so what does Taylor Schilling's family think of Orange Is the New Black? "My family watches the show," she tells PEOPLE in the new issue, on newsstands Friday. "They like it!"
And do they close their eyes every time she's naked?
"Right, yeah," she says laughing. "We don't ever talk about that. It's just not something that's ever brought up. It's funny, we just kind of don't acknowledge it."

Taylor Schilling admits she's not exactly eager to peel off the orange jumpsuit to show the world what's underneath.
"I've been scared of the nudity," Schilling, 30, said during a panel for the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences' screening of Orange Is the New Black in West Hollywood on Wednesday. "Just as an actor [that] has been frightening for me."
But if filming a nude scene is what's needed to get to the heart of her character, the star isn't afraid to undress. The actress, who plays Piper Chapman on the hit Netflix show, made the admission after she was asked about the last time she called show creator Jenji Kohan to talk about a scene.
