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.”

“My family is awesome, though. They’ve grown with Piper [Chapman, my character]. I talked to my aunt the other day, and she said, ‘You’re so strong now!’ ”

Schilling, 30, is also receiving great reviews for her performance in the buzzy new comedy The Overnight, about two couples who venture into swinging during a drug- and alcohol-fueled evening.

The Emmy-nominated actress admits partying isn’t unfamiliar territory for her. “I’ve ended up in different states, not really knowing how it happened,” she says. “That’s something, right? Let’s be honest, it’s only like New York to New Jersey – hop, skip and a jump.”

As for any details, she says, laughing again, “I don’t know how much I want to tell you about, to be honest. We were all young once, in various states of undress, in various states, you know.”
