Meet Alicia Rodis, the 'intimacy co-ordinator' making sex scenes safer for actors
Originally published on November 13, 2018
Filming sex scenes may be part of the job, but they can leave an actor feeling exposed and in some cases violated. That's why, in the wake of #MeToo, HBO has hired its first-ever "intimacy co-ordinator" to protect actors during sex scenes.
Alicia Rodis joins Tom Power live from New York to talk about her unique role advocating for actors on set, which involves everything from reviewing their scripts to providing knee pads and flesh-coloured thongs.
