Of course you want to know what sex looks like in an MRI machine

Reckon you’ve seen it all when it comes to sex? Well, sorry, but we’re here to prove you wrong using a bunch of MRI images.

Okay, yes, that sounds awfully clinical but stick with us. You definitely won’t regret this.

A new video compiled by the website Vox has given us a fascinating insight into what various processes of the human body look like in an Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) machine.

The video includes images from multiple cinematic MRI scans, which depict the subjects having conversations, drinking juice, giving birth, kissing and, yes, having sex. Unlike X-rays and CT scans, this form of imaging doesn’t involve harmful radiation, meaning it can produce more images of the body – enough to make a moving picture – in greater detail.

In case you don’t have time to join the more that 5 million people who have watched the video (below), click through this gallery to see all the best bits.

This gives us the chance to see bodily processes more clearly. All of a sudden, mundane activities like drinking pineapple juice become completely captivating. The scans allow us to see how the heart speeds up during a kiss, what twins look like when fighting for space in the womb, and exactly what’s happening down there when you’re getting it on.

It’ll make you cringe, sure – but we bet you won’t be able to look away.

Footage from MRI scans is the last thing any of us expected to hit ‘viral’ status, but it just goes to show that when you throw sex into the mix, human beings will click on just about anything.

What part of the video was most fascinating for you?
