In the wake of some issues with actors and extras stripping down for the camera and engaging in sex scenes in the big budget fantasy series “Game of Thrones,” it comes as little surprise that HBO has thought ahead regarding another high profile drama series in the works.
The Live Feed reports that an unknown number of extras at Central Casting sought to be a part of HBO’s upcoming “Westworld” TV series were given pretty fascinating consent form. The form reportedly used the following language:
“This document serves to inform you that this project will require you to be fully nude and/or witness others fully nude and participate in graphic sexual situations.
By accepting this Project assignment, you may be required to do any of the following: appear fully nude; wear a pubic hair patch; perform genital-to-genital touching; have your genitals painted; simulate oral sex with hand-to-genital touching; contort to form a table-like shape while being fully nude; pose on all fours while others who are fully nude ride on your back; ride on someone’s back while you are both fully nude; and other assorted acts the Project may require.
The Project will also include language and sexual situations that some may consider personally objectionable or uncomfortable.”
It’s that “other assorted acts” that has some worried, though isn’t likely to involve bondage elements as “rough or dangerous work” requires notice. SAG-AFTRA will reportedly have a representative on the set to monitor the situation when the sex scene is being shot today.
