EP. S2E35 — That Swarm Sex Scene w/ Sasha Nicolle Smith

Chlöe Bailey’s explicit sex scene in Swarm created fiery discourse online, so Ashley turns to Swarm’s intimacy coordinator Sasha Nicolle Smith to get the exclusive behind the scenes scoop on the realistic (but FAKE, duh!) sex scene. Sasha details everything that goes into planning and shooting TV sex scenes, spills some tea about Rory Culkin’s penis close-up in Swarm, shares tips on how to make a kiss look smokin’ hot, and even brings a real example of the pilates ball she places between actors’ bodies.
