Intimacy Guidelines in the works
Currently there are no industry-wide guidelines for scenes that involve nudity, semi nudity, intimacy, simulated sexual activity and sexual violence. It’s time for that to change.
Clear procedures and expectations create safer workplaces. The Intimacy Guidelines Committee has been developing draft Guidelines over the last four months.
Following extensive industry consultation with stage and screen directors, producers, writers, educators, agents, casting directors and all involved in the creation of intimate scenes, Equity will release these guidelines and they will be used on every production in the country.
