The Witcher franchise looks to be upping the amount of sex that in Season 2, as they have appeared to add in an Intimacy Coordinator to the series.
Lizzy Talbot has joined the crew for The Witcher season 2 as an intimacy coordinator, as Redanian Intelligence reports. Talbot is listed in the position for a number of upcoming shows, including Sky’s Intergalactic, HBO’s The Nevers, and Netflix’s Bridgerton.
This job title has been gaining traction in film and television over the past handful of years, and basically serves as a stunt coordinator, but instead of stunts, it’s for sex – ensuring that the actors are safe, comfortable, and that there’s clear communication about how to execute each sex scene.
HBO began the use of intimacy coordinators in 2018, and since instituted a policy that all its shows would use them going forward. Netflix followed this trend and used it in the brilliant Sex Education series in 2019.
