What they didn’t teach you in acting class
It’s not easy to avoid in this industry. S*E*X is everywhere! Hey, it sells and Hollywood knows it. These days, almost every television show or mainstream film contains at least one scene involving kissing, nudity or sex.
If you are an actor who has questions about how to stay professional and make respectable choices when faced with an intimate scene, you aren’t alone.
