Contrary to how effortless, natural, and erotic they seem on-screen, Hollywood sex scenes take a great deal of thoughtfulness, hard work, and preparation to create. Like any aspect of film or television, there are countless crew members — from those working on casting to camera work to editing — whose combined efforts create the movie magic we see in the final product. Because the subject matter of love scenes is so personal, those involved have a variety of secret tricks and techniques up their sleeves to make scenes convincing for audiences and as comfortable as possible for actors.
The MeToo movement has forced Hollywood to rethink how it deals with sex scenes. Actors are searching for better protections and more control before and after a scene is shot. The MeToo movement is forcing Hollywood to confront issues of consent.

It was January ofin the thick of the MeToo movement; the series was set to return in a month, including Franco playing a pair of twins. Meade asked HBO to hire a crew member whose job, specifically, would be to oversee the planning, preparation, and performance of sex scenes, much like a stunt coordinator. Her request had a ripple effect: Soon after The Deuce brought in intimacy coordinator Alicia Rodis, HBO implemented a policy that would require an intimacy coordinator on all programming that features adult content.
On closer examination, though, the products and their names were mysterious. So what do we need to make sure? Rodis wants both to shield sensitive body parts and to make their contours undetectable.
