Best Practices for Scenes Involving Nudity, Intimacy, Simulated Sex and Sexual Violence

This resource was developed to help guide workers in the entertainment industry to ask the right questions about scenes involving nudity, intimacy, simulated sex and sexual violence. It contains separate checklists for performers, intimacy coordinators, agents, casting directors and production companies. This document covers situations from pre-production through to post-production, including auditions, wardrobe fittings, contracting, closed-set protocols and restricted access in post-production. 

ACTRA remains committed to protecting our members from harassment and continuing to work with our industry partners on our shared responsibility to provide safe workplaces.
