    THE INTIMACY COORDINATOR

    THE INTIMACY COORDINATOR

    In the not too distant past, actresses on television or film sets were asked to appear nude or to be in graphic sex scenes that made them feel uncomfortable, and they could either agree, or get fired. Women weren’t the only performers who were coerced, just a horrifically vast majority. As Kristen Lopez writes for RogerEbert.com in a 2018 piece called A Matter of Legitimacy: Female Nudity On-Screen:
    “…Hollywood marketing and audience interest still encourages the consumption of female bodies, in spite of increased awareness of the male gaze and the continued statistics charting the lack of male nudity on-screen. Actresses today feel the need to “explain” their reasons behind deciding to be nude or not, damned if they do or if they don’t, all in an aid to justify the audiences’ comfort lusting after female flesh and perpetuating the continued double standards regarding male and female nudity in film.”
    For many marginalized performers, the systemic power imbalance made it impossible for them to advocate for themselves if they wanted to keep working. But now, in the wake of #MeToo and high-profile takedowns of Hollywood power brokers who’ve enjoyed years of predatory behavior that was hushed up by colleagues, there’s a new era.
    The era of The Intimacy Coordinator.
    On this episode, I interview Jean Franzblau, a professional, highly trained Intimacy Coordinator, and a member of the Intimacy Professionals Association, who is working on sets to make sure that performers are not coerced into doing sex scenes, and that all graphic depictions on camera are choreographed and negotiated in advance. If a performer has an issue, the Intimacy Coordinator presents it to the director and producers and advocates on the behalf of talent.
    Not everyone is working with Intimacy Coordinators, and it’s not as if studios and networks that are employing them, have had a sudden awakening. People have turned a blind eye to predatory behavior for as long as there’s been a Hollywood. It's just that now corporations realize that, just like COVID safety protocols, making sure a set is safe for its performers is a legitimate OSHA concern, not to mention that unchecked egregious behavior will expose them to potential litigation and public relations nightmares. No one wants or can afford that today.
    As a safety measure for all parties involved, many studios and networks now employ Intimacy Coordinators. We’re going to find out exactly what an Intimacy Coordinator does, how they advocate for talent, and assist writers and directors in the technicalities of certain sexual situations.
    We’ll also find out why they can write off yoga mats.
    It’s all in this interview.
    Also!!!! Huge News!!!
    We (barely) survived the dumpster fire that was 2020. But, we have a new year coming up with a new President and a badass Female Vice President OF COLOR, so things are looking up!

    MYSTERY DATE!

    MYSTERY DATE!

    Lite Brite, Ants In The Pants, Rock ‘Em Sock ‘Em Robots, Masterpiece, Operation, Mousetrap, Smash Up Derby, The Evil Knievel Stunt Cycle, Simon, and Gnip Gnop — these were the games of my childhood.
    Little did I know that all of those amazing toys originated from one company located in a highly secretive bunker just a few miles south of my suburban Chicago home. Marvin Glass, the founder of Marvin Glass & Associates, was one of the most prolific and brilliant toy inventors of the 20th century. His company’s product list is my childhood.
    One of the most beloved and collectible board games of all time, also created by Marvin Glass & Associates, was a game called Mystery Date.
    Here’s the commercial from 1965.
    One of the most sought-after games of the 1960s, if you were a little girl back then, this game was EV-ER-Y-THING. Marketed to girls 6-14 years old, the game was a runaway hit. The best part of every slumber party and girlie playdate, the Mystery Date commercial jingle became part of the vernacular. To this day, most women in their 50s can probably sing it word for word.
    Yeah, so like every other little girl, I was OBSESSED with this game. In a way, it made me feel grown up and a little naughty to be playing a game about dating.
    But…
    Now a million years later, in a completely different world. I find it to be a little more problematic. I have a biracial, 14 year-old daughter and looking back on my beloved childhood board game, I kinda have some issues. Like real issues.
    On this episode, I chat with three good friends about Mystery Date. Frances Callier, a comedian and regular pundit on the Sexy Liberal Show. My dyed-in-the-wool New Yorker friend, TV writer and producer, Francesca Rollins, whose connection to the game is as New York as can be. Plus my friend and lifetime Mystery Date superfan, Mike Mannarino, an executive with a major Silicon Valley tech firm.
    Through today’s lens and current political climate, this game looks a lot different to all of us. And the subtext is, in a word, icky.
    I’d like to say a special thank you to rights and clearances consultant Amy Goodfriend and to the wonderful folks at Hasbro for allowing me to use their awesome jingle in the show.
    Also, I’m not gonna lie, I wish I still had the original version of the game. With the right framing, I actually think it could still be a lot of fun.

    CONQUERING YOUR SEXUAL FEARS

    CONQUERING YOUR SEXUAL FEARS

    Fear is a natural, powerful human emotion. It alerts us to the presence of danger, or the threat of harm whether real or imaginary. A little fear is fine, it prevents you from doing stupid things. However, when it prevents you from experiencing things that can enhance your life and make you a happier and more authentic person, you really need to examine it.
    And then kick its ass.
    After conquering one of my biggest fears, I was inspired to share this story with you. Because, what seems like a pretty innocuous night in my back yard is actually a stepping stone to enormous change, pride and possibility.
    Like everyone else, I’ve dealt with fear in my life. I’ve given away my power. I’ve worried about what people would think of me to the point where I was afraid to share my own story. I’ve been afraid that I might be judged, ostracized or mocked for doing what I’ve always wanted to do.
    But I did it anyway.
    And you know what? My entire world did not fall apart. In fact, it got better.
    Because it doesn’t matter what people think about you — that’s none of your business. Period. And you absolutely cannot live your life in fear of what everyone else thinks. Are total strangers or people you barely care about the ones who get to set the direction of your life? I was afraid to write my memoir because I didn’t want to be judged by this super catty mom at my kid’s school. For years, I actually let one bitter and horrible person derail my life’s work. It finally dawned on me that her opinion of me doesn’t matter. My parents’ opinion of me doesn’t matter. Anyone’s opinion of me doesn’t matter.
    Only my opinion of me matters.
    There’s a very good chance you are not living your authentic life and pursuing sexual adventure because you are afraid of being judged.
    Hospice worker Bronnie Ware, author of the book, The Top Five Regrets Of The Dying: A Life Transformed By The Dearly Departing catalogued the most common regrets expressed by people on their death beds.
    5. I wish that I had let myself be happier.
    4. I wish I had stayed in touch with my friends.
    3. I wish I’d had the courage to express my feelings.
    2. I wish I hadn’t worked so hard.
    1. I wish I’d had the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life others expected of me.
    BOOM.
    What is preventing you from enjoying a life true to yourself? Why are you allowing fear and people who truly mean nothing to stop you? How can you get past this fear and start living the sex life of your dreams?
    In this episode, I share a story of my own fear and how even though I thought I was a boss at eliminating fear, it turns out I wasn’t. However, one night spent sleeping in my back yard changed everything for me.
    Hopefully, this episode will inspire you to face your fears…and then conquer them like a motherfucking BOSS!
    In fact, I’d love to hear some of the fears you face and then conquer. Please email them to me at info@sexedthemusical.com. Or just say hi! We’re always here and love hearing from you.

    NAUGHTY BOOKS

    NAUGHTY BOOKS

    "The biggest critics of my books are people who never read them."
    --Jackie Collins
    It brings in over a billion dollars in sales every year.
    It’s devoured by dedicated customers who can never get enough.
    It’s a global phenomenon with fans across every demographic.
    Yet, erotic literature gets very little respect.
    Henry Miller. Anaïs Nin. D.H. Lawrence. Vladimir Nabokov. John Updike. Erica Jong. All literary giants while also experts at writing about some really hot sex. Erotic fiction has highbrow roots but a very lowbrow reputation.
    However, when Fifty Shades of Grey sold over 125 million copies worldwide and self publishing gave anyone with a computer the opportunity to upload their work for sale on Amazon’s Kindle store, the entire game changed. Suddenly women who loved reading erotic fiction saw an opportunity. Readers became writers. For some, success came practically overnight. For others, the pressures of taking each story to another extreme became unsustainable.
    In this episode, I interview filmmaker and author Austen Rachlis, the producer/director of the documentary Naughty Books.
    "Naughty Books follows three writers: Kelli Maine, Kristen Proby, and CJ Roberts, as they navigate what unexpected success means for their lives, both professionally and personally.
    On the surface, this movie is about self-published romance novels, but at its core, it’s about women challenging the status quo and stepping forward to tell the world they aren’t ashamed of their sexuality. In a world where #MeToo dominates the headlines and predatory behavior is pervasive, Naughty Books celebrates women reclaiming their sexuality on their own terms."
    Look, we live in crazy times. During the pandemic, sex toy sales have increased 200%. Erotic fiction sales have also increased. What does this tell you? Women need relief. An escape. We need Me Time.
    So, crawl in bed. Light your favorite pumpkin spice candles. Get under your weighted blanket and discover the amazing story behind your favorite Naughty Books.

    TOP TEN SEX MYTHS BUSTED!

    TOP TEN SEX MYTHS BUSTED!

    Did you know you can lose weight by having sex? What?!? That’s amazing! Two things I love, boning and toning. That has to be true, right?
    Welllllll…according to the Dr. Felix Sex Workout Calculator, a woman who weighs 140 pounds and has sex in the missionary position FOR AN HOUR, will burn 84.6 calories. To lose one pound of weight, you need to burn 3500 calories. So if a woman wanted to lose one pound of weight, she would need to have continuous missionary position sex for 41 hours. 41 straight hours of boning to lose one pound. I don’t know about you but my vulva would probably break after 41 minutes, forget 41 hours. But we’ve all been told SEX IS A GREAT WAY TO LOSE WEIGHT.
    Unfortunately that is not exactly true.
    For years magazines and “news” headlines have fed us non-stop misinformation about sex, and reproduction. And we bought it all. Shoe size dictates dick size. Oysters make you horny. Women don’t like sex. Well, actually heterosexual women are the least sexually satisfied group, but we’re going to save the Orgasm Gap for another day. This week I’m busting the biggest myths out there when it comes to sex. Enough is enough!
    How are some of these ingrained myths directly tied to patriarchal programming? Who actually believes that semen prevents tooth decay? And what’s the name for people who use the pull out method?
    After listening to this episode, you’ll have plenty to talk about at your next Zoom dinner party. The bottom line is, when it comes to sex, you shouldn’t always believe what you’ve been told. Especially if it’s some dude bragging about the size of his junk.
    Cause you’re about to find out, that, my friends, is never a good sign.

Awesome!

Informative, sexy and laugh-our-loud funny! Gotta be careful who you are around when you’re listening to this podcast!

Pinwormdelight ,

As a guy...

I find this podcast to be very educational, enjoyable, and entertaining. The tone is light and breezy, but the material presented is solid, factual, and gives me a little bit better understanding of the wide variety of perspectives that women might have on pretty much any topic relating to sex and relationships.
