"It's the most shocking, incisive and honest portrait of American sexuality [right now] – except it's set in the Fifties," Rolling Stone's Rob Sheffield said about the second season of Showtime's hit series Masters of Sex. And with the show's new season moving things up to the mid-Sixties — after William Masters and Virginia Johnson have published their groundbreaking study and right when the sexual revolution is starting to heat up — we were really curious to a get a peek behind the scenes. Lucky for us, star Lizzy Caplan was more than happy to play tour guide and let our photographer Lindsey Byrnes follow her around for a day. Check out this exclusive gallery of shots on the Masters of Sex set — with commentary from Caplan herself — before the Season Three premiere on Sunday, July 12th.

Like Father, Like Daughter

"While Michael O'Keefe and I prepare for an emotional father/daughter scene, Obi the camera troll lurks in the shadows, waiting to club us over the head and steal our dreams."

Lizzy Caplan and Frances Fisher

We See Paris, We See Frances…

"The great Frances Fisher plays my mother on the show. No, we aren't stoned in this picture — but she probably is completely naked under that robe."

Welcome Back, Weaver

"Mike Weaver was our director of photography for Seasons One and Two, and he returned this year to direct. Who says you can never go home again?"

We Are Family

"This is Isabelle Fuhrman — she plays my daughter. I know she looks big, but she was much smaller when I pushed her out of my vagina."
