We've all witnessed it — the awkward looks, the role play gone awry, and the uncontrollable sobbing. Watching your favorite TV characters have awful, hide-your-eyes-in-sorrow sex is a harrowing experience. But it can also be an enlightening one.

How many of us learned to check for guardrails before knocking boots on a roof from watching a guest star plunge to the end of her contract?
