The View’s Whoopi Goldberg left one of her producers cringing with his head in his hands while brazenly discussing the difficulties of getting intimate in a swimming pool during a very racy chat with co-host Joy Behar about their sex lives.
In a rather shocking moment on the ABC show, Whoopi, 67, went into a bit too much detail about getting intimate in a swimming pool, while Joy, 80, then claimed ‘sex is best’ when she’s on vacation in Italy.
The 80-year-old joked ‘there must be something in the food’ as Whoopi, 67, advised her: ‘If you bring it with you in a little case, you can have sex whenever you want to.’
The Sister Act star went on to say she thinks ‘sex on the beach is overrated’ and almost got into trouble when she started reminiscing about getting physical in water.
As she tried to explain her point, Joy warned Whoopi: ‘Watch it now!’ as Alyssa Farah Griffin predicted: ‘Brian’s going to send us to commercial!’ as the program took a very unexpected turn.

Too much information: Joy Behar admitted ‘sex is best’ when she’s on vacation in Italy
Awkward: Executive producer Brian Teta looked embarrassed during the segment
The saucy conversation began as Whoopi announced: ‘As we get closer to vacation, vacation things seem to get closer to us…’
She went on to say that a recent report warned ‘that while having great sex on vacation can be a good way to reconnect, noisy hotels, sunburns and food poisoning can kill any chance of romance’.
This led to some of hosts sharing a bit too much information as Sara Haines, 45, admitted she has to put sex on her ‘to do list’ and claimed that her husband Max Shifrin ‘loves vacation Sara’ because ‘she’s so hot’.
Alyssa responded and said: ‘I read this article as a newlywed and didn’t even know it was a vacation if you didn’t have sex on it! That didn’t even make sense to me.’
Joy chimed in and joked: ‘I think an idea might be, you go on vacation with your husband then you have sex with somebody you meet there. Now, that’s a vacation!’ as the live studio audience laughed.
She continued: ‘The best sex is in Italy, I don’t know why, I think there’s something in the food. I’ve been to a lot of different countries…’ as Sunny Hostin suggested: ‘It’s the wine.’
‘The wine! That’s it! There is no junk in the wine,’ Joy agreed as Alyssa added: ‘There’s no sulfites so you don’t get headaches, you’re not feeling hangover the next day.’
The 34-year-old then revealed ‘apparently 85 per cent of people fantasize about sex in nature, 83 about sex on the beach’, as Joy butted in again and declared: ‘Sex on the beach is a drink and that’s a fun thing to order.’

Listening in: Sunny Hostin joked she was ‘learning’ as Whoopi spoke about having sex in water
Whoopi was keen to share her thoughts and declared: ‘Sex on the beach is overrated,’ to which Joy asked her: ‘The drink or the sex?’ and she fired back: ‘Both!’
But no one was expecting what came next as the Oscar-winning actress continued: ‘Because, you know, if you tried to have sex in the pool, you know that’s not easy because you’re trying to up the hill and you’re getting resistance from the water that is within…’
The rest of the panel were stunned and laughed nervously as Whoopi continued: ‘Because when you’re in the pool, you are surrounded in the water… have you ever tried to put anything…’ but Joy quickly told her: ‘Watch it now!’
Alyssa then predicted the show would be cut to a commercial as Whoopi turned to their producer and said: ‘Oh you’re trying to move me on now, right? You tell me get engaged in the conversation, then I start to get engaged, then you want me to stop talking!’
‘Because they’re scared!’ Joy claimed as Sunny joked: ‘I was learning things though.’
Whoopi replied: ‘Yes, well these are things you already know that you maybe don’t know that you know because you haven’t done it for a long time.’
‘Or maybe never did it…’ Sunny, 54, responded, but Whoopi was having none of it.
‘I don’t believe that! If you’ve never done any of these things that are in my brain right now, I’m a natural born blond!’ she joked as the show cut to a commercial.

Another shocked fan said: ‘Whoopi is really over here describing having sex in a pool lmaooo #TheView, while a third declared: ‘This segment is a mess Lmaoo …whoopi #TheView.’
A fourth person simply said: ‘That entire segment was odd. #TheView.’
Whoopi’s racy admission comes just one day after she opened up about her past marriages during Tuesday’s show.
The mother-of-one revealed that she never actually wanted to get married, despite getting hitched three times, and complained about how ‘boring and expenses’ her trio of divorces became.
