Trivia

This was the first film featuring explicit sex scenes to receive a certificate in the Republic of Ireland.
Kieran O'Brien and Margo Stilley did not communicate with each other between filming so that their off-screen relationship would not affect the one they had on screen.
Margo Stilley never wanted to be credited in the film because of the unsimulated, explicit sex scenes. She asked the director to refer to her in interviews as "Lisa", the name of her character in the film.
The sex scenes were shot with only the two actors, the director, the cameraman, and the soundman on the set.
The two leads only had three days to get acquainted before filming.
According to the "Variety" review, the transfer of the film, which was shot in DV, was done by photographing a digital projection of the movie on a white wall, to create a negative from which prints for release could be made.
The film was released as "9 Orgasms" in Mexico and Slovenia.
Director Michael Winterbottom shot over 200 hours of digital video.
Shooting time for the film was projected as ten weeks. The cast and crew ended up shooting for five months.

Michael Winterbottom cast Kieran O'Brien because he knew he was well-endowed. He had previously appeared nude (albeit in a flaccid state) in Virtual Sexuality (1999) and Burn It (2003).

Kieran O'Brien has an erect penis which measures over 6.3 inches (16 cm) in length, which puts him in the top five per cent of men according to an extensive study by the British Journal of Urology International in 2015. They found 90 per cent of men measure between 3.94 inches (10cm) and 6.3 inches when erect. Five per cent of men are less than 3.94 inches in length when erect.
