An actors' union is calling for on-set observers to monitor all sex scenes for major Hollywood films.
The move, triggered by the Harvey Weinstein sexual harassment scandal, is part of a new code of conduct from the Screen Actors Guild-American Federation of Television and Radio Artists, which represents more than 160,000 actors in the US.
The union, SAG-AFTRA, produced a detailed seven-page guide that aims to tackle workplace sexual harassment in films, TV shows and commercials.

As was pointed out in the article, a lot of the abuse happens BEFORE anyone gets a part in a film or advertisement.
But I have a better suggestion. Why not eliminate all nudity and sex scenes?
The set isn’t where it happens.
Six hundred pervs expected to register as pervs....I mean observers...
One point of view is that the customers want to see nudity and sex scenes. However, some of the interviews regarding Weinstein and others have said that the producer or director demanded the nudity and sex scenes.
Not stupid at all. It is a “hate men” surtax on studios.
Of COURSE it happens at the casting couch and all this sturm und drang will change that NOT IN THE TINIEST BIT.
I have yet to see a nude or sex scene that enhances any of the movies I enjoy. Get rid of them
So, uh, let me get this straight. One performer filming a sex scene with another performer that accuse that performer of sexual harassment?
I’m really confused.
Several things at play, a scene is written one way in the script and rehearsal but when the cameras role they insist on nudity below the waist (even if it won’t be screened like that).
And it happens to extras who show up for the day only to be told no pay if they don’t strip. And that happens to male actors. And that happens to minors.
So much for the feminists attempt to claim an exclussive wrong with MeToo.
Hollywood is suddenly a bunch of Puritans who also cannot stand the sight of a gun.
Time to eliminate sex, nudity, and guns from all movies.
Houston’s lesbian mayor levied a rape tax on all strip joint patrons because ‘sex’ and because the corrupt AF democrat run city was many years behind on testing rape kits that were submitted.
>>One point of view is that the customers want to see nudity and sex scenes.
Customers like guns too. But, these are CELEBRITIES and they know better!
I’m honestly surprised that actors and actresses haven’t already demanded an end to onscreen sex scenes and nudity. It’s pretty gratuitous on pay cable/streaming and in indie movies.
“the producer or director demanded the nudity and sex scenes”
This has the ring of truth to it. Where is there any evidence the public demands it. I think that is BS.
Is a sex scene only one with sex or locker rooms, showers, corpses, medical scenes, etc? All nudity or just that which they call sex?
"...nudity and sex scenes..."
I pretty much agree. The overwhelming amount of nudity and sex could be eliminated and the plot would not be affected. I told someone I thought that it seems like sex scenes are written by men with the mentality of an 8 year old boy who just saw his first Playboy magazine.
Why not eliminate all nudity and sex scenes?
Hollywood wants chaperones to oversee sex scenes to protect the woman.
Theres the end of the feminist movement for you.
I also predict youll see schools adopting this policy very shortly as if its a new concept.
