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.
This was the first film featuring explicit sex scenes to receive a certificate in the Republic of Ireland.
The two leads only had three days to get acquainted before filming.
The film was released as "9 Orgasms" in Mexico and Slovenia.
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.
Director Michael Winterbottom shot over 200 hours of digital video.

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).
