New Netflix thriller Behind Her Eyes is leaving viewers reeling with its very racy sex scenes and shocking ending.
The drama, which is based on the best-selling book by Sarah Pinborough, and was adapted for series by Steve Lightfoot, follows Adele (played by Bono’s daughter Eve Hewson) as she befriends Louise (played by Simona Brown) who is having an affair with her husband David (portrayed by Tom Bateman).
The thriller, which was released earlier this week on Netflix, has left many viewers hot under the collar with its kinky sex scenes, which were coordinated by Normal People’s intimacy coach Ita O’Brien.

In the 6-part mini-series, single mother Louise tries to support her son by getting a part-time job at a psychiatrists office.
It’s there she meets David, her boss, and through their relationship Louise becomes trapped in a web of lies as it becomes increasingly clear that no one and nothing is as it seems.
The thriller is packed full of sexy moments that will remind viewers of recent dramas like Normal People and Bridgerton.
In fact, Ita O’Brien, intimacy coordinator for Normal People, choreographed some of the raunchiest scenes in the show.
Many of those watching have been left shocked by the Netflix series, which is an adaptation of the best-selling book by Sarah Pinborough
In one steamy moment, Louise and David engage in a very heated romp on David’s desk at work.
Meanwhile another sexy scene sees the pair entwined together in bed, while Louise’s young son sleeps next door.
Alison actress Eve told InTheStyle that intimacy co-ordinator ita would encourage the actors to emulate animals in order to achieve the realistic and intimate sex scenes.
She revealed: ‘She uses animal references for the sort of noises or the physical reactions that she wants from you. So she might say, “Have you ever seen a horse buck? Do it like that.”
Meanwhile Bono’s daughter Eve Hewson, who plays Adele in the shocking six-part series, said the actors were often encouraged to emulate animals in the intimate sex scenes
‘Or, “Have you ever seen slugs having sex? It’s kind of like this movement.”
‘So, it’s a sort of way to communicate with you that doesn’t feel as invasive as just saying “harder” or “faster” or something that might make you feel really uncomfortable.’
However, it’s not all sexy and scandalous moments and the series takes an unexpected turn when David’s wife Adele becomes good friends with Louise.
Through a series of flashbacks, viewers learn Adele has spent time in a rehabilitation centre with Rob, played by Robert Aramyo, a working class, gay heroin addict.
After meeting David, Rob tricks Adele into ‘travelling’ or swapping her soul into his body.

Rob goes on to steal Adele’s body by killing her while her soul is inside his original body, and continues to live Adele’s life.
In the present day, Rob, as Adele, grooms Louise to learn how to ‘travel’ or astrally project, out of her own body and into other people.
As Louise and David fall more in love with one another, he manages to convince Louise to swap bodies with Adele.
Rob, now within Louise’s body, then kills Louise’s soul, within Adele’s body, by lethal injection, and thus steals her body forever.
The shocking twist in the finale of the show reveals Rob, played by Robert Aramayo, has been possessing Adele’s body for years, and he goes on to possess Louise
Rob sets up the scene to look like a suicide, and with Adele dead and gone forever, Rob’s soul, inside Louise’s body, is free to be with David once again.
Many of those watching were left completely baffled by the bizarre ending to the show, with one commenting: ‘I choked on my tea at the end.’
Another wrote: ‘This show is so f***** good but I’m so pissed at the same time, wtf?!?’
One added: ‘Finished Behind Her Eyes and…huh!? I don’t know if I’m impressed, confused, need to rewatch and/or got high without knowing before watching it.’
Behind Her Eyes is set to be released globally on Netflix on February 17, 2021.
