Lea Michele Says Tonight’s ‘Glee’ Sex Episode Is ‘Smart’

This week’s “Glee” episode is going to be sexy…literally. Two of the show’s favorite couples will FINALLY get it on. Blaine and Kurt break new TV ground and do it, for the first time, while Finn and Rachel also seal the deal.

It marks the first time for Rachel (you know what we mean!), and Lea Michele told MTV News at the Glamour Women of the Year event in New York City, that while there’s some sex, it certainly doesn’t mean that the story lines are tawdry.

“You know, I think it’s a really smart episode,” she explained quite diplomatically about the prospect of having on-screen sex with Cory Monteith. “I think what they did with it was really tasteful and really great. We deal with these issues on our show [and] we’re always funny, but at the same time we really make sure that there’s sort of a lesson involved and that its done in a very tasteful way.”

Once this episode wraps up, there’s another big “Glee” moment that fans of the series have to look forward to. As for the return of her longtime pal Jonathan Groff, who will make his way back into the “Glee” universe in 2012, she only had this to say: “I know he’s the coach of Vocal Adrenaline, so…”

Yeah, Lea, so…?
