SAG-AFTRA issues new intimacy guidelines
2020-01-29

On Jan. 29, SAG-AFTRA ( Screen Actors Guild-American Federation of Television and Radio Artists ) announced a major milestone in its ongoing work to promote the on-set safety and dignity of its members.

SAG-AFTRA's new "Standards and Protocols for the Use of Intimacy Coordinators" provides a framework for the use of professional, skilled intimacy coordinators—professionals who help performers and productions navigate highly sensitive scenes that feature nudity and simulated sex—throughout the entire production process.

The standards and protocols were developed in collaboration with SAG-AFTRA member leaders and a community of experienced intimacy coordinators, including representatives from Intimacy Directors International and Intimacy Professionals Association.

In 2018, the union established the Four Pillars of Change initiative and collaborated with the SAG-AFTRA Foundation and The Actors Fund to expand existing intervention tools and survivor support services. In 2019, it issued its Code of Conduct and Guideline No. 1 ( the prohibition of meetings in high-risk locations ) to uphold professional standards and address the potentially toxic culture and power imbalances that contribute to workplace harassment.

The full document is at SAGAFTRA.org/contracts-industry-resources/workplace-harassment/intimacy-coordinator-standards-protocols .
