This is Hollyweird: HBO to staff all sex scenes with “Intimacy Coordinator”

Maggie Gyllenhaal (r) stars in The Deuce

This somehow gets spun into “female empowerment.”

Let’s just call it what it is: People watching/acting pretend sex on camera for big bucks.

About this HBO show, The Deuce:

“The Deuce features an ensemble cast that includes James Franco and Maggie Gyllenhaal. It tells the story of the legalization and ensuing rise of the porn industry in New York City beginning in the 1970s. Themes explored include government and police corruption, the violence of the drug epidemic, and the resulting real-estate booms and busts that coincided with the change. The show’s title is derived from the nickname for 42nd Street between Seventh Avenue and Eighth Avenue.”

From Hollywood Reporter: After the second season of The Deuce piloted the practice, HBO decided to staff every one of its television shows and films that have intimate scenes going forward with an intimacy coordinator.

The network on Thursday announced its decision via its public relations Twitter account after Rolling Stone published a story about the pay cable network’s work with Deuce intimacy coordinator Alicia Rodis. “As reported in @RollingStone, all @HBO programs with intimate scenes will be staffed by an intimacy coordinator,” HBO PR tweeted.

Since working on The Deuce, a series about the burgeoning porn industry in New York in the 1970s, Rodis has worked on intimate scenes on Crashing, the upcoming Watchmen series and the Deadwood movie, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed. Rodis is additionally training new intimacy coordinators to be on hand during the production of the upcoming crime drama Jett and the Drake executive-produced high school series Euphoria

The Deuce star Emily Meade, who plays the prostitute turned porn star Lori on the show, initiated Rodis’ initial hire when she asked the show’s co-creators and HBO for an “advocate purely for sexual scenes,” as she told HBO’s Ashley Morton in an interview. Following the onset of the #MeToo movement, Meade began questioning why stunt coordinators were nearly always on hand for small stunts, but no one had been enlisted to protect those involved in sex scenes.

“When it comes to sexuality, which is one of the most vulnerable things for all humans, men and women, there’s really no system. There’s never been a person required to be there to protect and bring expertise,” she said.

HBO found Rodis via her two-year-old nonprofit Intimacy Directors International, which aims to codify standards for sex scenes in theater and film and protect against sexual abuse on-set. Deuce co-creator David Simon has since told Rolling Stone that he will never work without an intimacy coordinator again.

“Because the truth is, we knew we were asking a lot of actors and directors and crew in terms of professionalism and to deliver this material bluntly and honestly. But you can ask all you want — at a certain point everybody has to trust everybody,” he said.

Rodis’ role on the show initially made headlines when The New York Times published an opinion story from an actress who had played a “female prison guard” in an X-rated movie on The Deuce and worked with Rodis.

“Ms. Rodis made sure I realized what was coming across on camera. I did, and kept going; it was a choice I felt empowered to make,” the author, Margaret Judson, wrote.

The Man With the Light

Dayna was a prostitute and stripper who worked in the sex-industry porn movies. But everything began to change one evening when a man with the light walked into the strip club.
This is her account of what happened.

Dayna Lovelady


Dayna Lovelady: From The Clubs to the Cross,” by Audra Smith, CBN.com.

Dayna Lovelady grew up in Detroit’s inner city. The violence of the neighborhood streets often hit home.
“As a child growing up in Detriot, there were a lot of difficulties,” said Dayna. “I also had a lot of family members who were addicts, from alcoholics to people who were on drugs. I saw that as the norm.”
Dayna searched for an escape from the chaos around her. She found it in school. She was a straight A student and a classically trained musician. But Dayna lived a double life.
“My other escape was alcohol, sex, and partying,” Dayna said. “I was very young when I started that process. I didn’t grow up in the church. To me, God was very far away. God was not personal. He was a God that sat up high and He looked down low, but He wasn’t a God that was going to sit down low with me.”
When she finished high school, Dayna earned a music scholarship to Tennessee State University. But when the semester started, Dayna found it difficult to pay for her living expenses. She decided to take a friend’s suggestion and work in the modeling industry.
“I talked to a friend of mine who told me about a guy who had a dance company if I wanted more money.” Dayna said. “And I found out that it wasn’t modern dance. It wasn’t tap dance. It was actually exotic dancing. But I said ‘I do need that money’ and so I decided to go ahead and do it. The very first night I danced I made about $1,500 and to be very young and make that amount of money… was pretty interesting.”
After a short time as a stripper, Dayna was drawn deeper into the sex industry. “I found out if you had sex, you would make more money,” Dayna said. “So I started having sex for money as well. And I was a typical streetwalker. I was a college girl doing this and had a pretty high GPA, had a scholarship, and was a classically trained musician. I really had two sides to me.”
By her second year in college, Dayna was tired of the sex industry, but couldn’t see a way out.
“I saw a lot of broken people,” Dayna said. “I saw a lot of women who really didn’t see any other way out. There were many cases where people would say to me ‘You just don’t belong here.’ I felt for a long period of time that I didn’t belong there. But they would say, ‘You seem different.’”
“There was one specific instance that I remember vividly,” Dayna said. “There was a man that came into the club and I remember the light that seemed to be around him on the outside. As he came into the very dark club, the light stayed with him. And he walked directly up to me and he looked at me and said, ‘You’re not supposed to be here.’ And he walked back out.”
Several months after her encounter, Dayna quit dancing and never returned to the industry. But, unfortunately, more trials were ahead. Dayna was diagnosed with severe cervical disease.
“During that time that I was going through the sickness,” Dayna said. “I was in and out of the hospital, going back and forth to the emergency rooms, and surgeries. As I started thinking more about the possibility of death, I really started to evaluate my life and the things I was going through. Also, my hair started to fall out. I started to look at myself differently.”
In desperation, Dayna found a childhood Bible she had hardly ever read.
“I came across a scripture that says our beauty shouldn’t come from the outward adornment such as braided hair, fancy jewelry and clothes,” Dayna said. “But it should come from the inner and quiet spirit that God doesn’t despise. So during that time, I realized that it wasn’t about how my hair looked. It wasn’t about the jewelry I wore. But it was about the inner spirit of what God was saying.”
“I do remember sitting there with the Bible,” Dayna said. “and saying ‘I want Jesus to be real to me. I want to know this Jesus the Bible is talking about.’ I just remember from that time, it didn’t mean that the problems all went away, but I had a new sense of hope. I had a sense of ‘I’m not living just to please people. I’m not living to make money. I’m not living to get a degree. I’m living with something more meaningful.’ I knew that there was a new story starting to be written by God in my life.”
After she graduated in the spring of 2005, Dayna went on to work at one of CBN’s Prayer Centers and was completely healed of her illness. She’s also a freelance writer and has earned her master’s degree. Today, she shares her story at every opportunity.
“Jesus is my everything,” Dayna said. “He is my Friend. He is my Counselor. He is my Savior. He is my Guide. The fact that Jesus died for me is so very personal for me, that He would do that for someone like me; somebody who was a prostitute, somebody who was a stripper. I would say to any person that is in a predicament like I was, is that Jesus died for your sins as well. He can do the same thing for them, no matter what their sin, no matter what their mistakes have been. God still loves them and He can clean their slates. He can give them a brand new beginning.”

FBI of Porn, Sex, Celebrity-Obsessed

George Washington said this in his first Inaugural Address in 1789:

“There exists in the economy and course of nature an indissoluble union between virtue and happiness … we ought to be no less persuaded that the propitious smiles of Heaven can never be expected on a nation that disregards the eternal rules of order and right which Heaven itself has ordained.”

The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) is supposed to be America’s elite police force, which upholds and is held to the highest moral-ethical standards. The FBI’s motto is “Fidelity, Bravery, Integrity”.
But secret files reveal hundreds of FBI agents each year are disciplined for serious breaches of misconduct which include having sex with their sources and masturbating while watching porn at work.
America’s first President weeps….

Sex Files: FBI agents guilty of sleeping with sources, watching porn at work and searching files for addresses of ‘hot’ celebrities
By Daniel Bates – Daily Mail – Feb 1, 2011
It is supposed to be the nation’s elite police force, working to the highest standards of all. But hundreds of FBI agents each year are in fact having to be disciplined for serious breaches of misconduct, secret files have revealed.
In the past three years more than 1,000 FBI employees have been found guilty of inappropriate behaviour, including one agent who had a sexual relationship with a source. Another agent used FBI databases to get personal details about celebrities he thought were ‘hot’. And one male member of staff shared confidential information with his news reporter girlfriend, and then threatened to release a sex tape the two had made unless she kept it quiet.
The litany of misconduct was detailed in confidential summaries of disciplinary rulings obtained by CNN. The disclosure threatens to undermine the FBI’s reputation for, as its own motto points out, ‘Fidelity, Bravery, Integrity’. The bureau could also face harsh criticism over its refusal to fire any of those caught out, even though the offences were of a grave nature.
Among the toughest punishments was for the agent who had the seven-month sexual relationship with a source. He was suspended for 40 days. Another employee drunkenly ‘exploited his FBI employment’ at a strip club by falsely claiming he was conducting an official investigation. He was suspended for 30 days. In another case a supervisor who viewed pornography in his office during work hours, while ‘sexually satisfying himself’ (so the file states) got a 35-day suspension. And an employee in a ‘leadership position’ misused a government database to check on two friends who were exotic dancers and allowed them into an FBI office after hours was ordered to stay away from work for 23 days.
President of the FBI Agents’ Association Konrad Motyka said such behaviour was ‘never acceptable’. He added: ‘Demonstrable incorrect conduct or criminal conduct is not acceptable and never should be’.
FBI Assistant Director Candice Will defended the decision not to fire any of the employees caught out behaving inappropriately. She said that 500 cases of misconduct were referred to her in the bureau’s Office of Professional Responsibility each year. Of those around 70 per cent – or 350 – were disciplined, including 30 who were fired.
The FBI employs 34,300 people, including 13,700 agents.
Assistant Director Will said: ‘We do have a no-tolerance policy. We don’t tolerate our employees engaging in misconduct. ‘We expect them to behave pursuant to the standards of conduct imposed on all FBI employees. It doesn’t mean that we fire everybody. You know, our employees are human, as we all are. We all make mistakes. So, our discipline is intended to reflect that. We understand that employees can make mistakes, will make mistakes. When appropriate, we will decide to remove an employee. When we believe that an employee can be rehabilitated and should be given a second chance, we do that.’
