Despite the dark, hypersexual nature of the “Rubber (Wo)man” episodes, Jackson dished to Cinema Blend that filming the scene was “just not very intimate at all.” Between the COVID-19 guidelines and the guidance of their “incredible” intimacy coordinator Corrin Evans, the steamy scene was a “pretty easy experience.” Explaining the process, she said that, “In between every take, we were putting a mask on and rinsing with mouthwash and doing the whole thing, but it was so professional and so, I guess, coordinated that it was just the job.”
Prior to their hookup-gone-wrong, Scarlett has a sexual fantasy about Maya and climaxes when she strangles her to death. Jackson said that filming these scenes was all about everyone involved making each other feel relaxed and asking for consent throughout. “It was all just very much me trying to make sure that Sierra was comfortable,” she said. “She was trying to make sure that I was comfortable. You know, like, ‘Is it okay if I put my hand here? Is it okay if I tuck your hair back? Is it okay if I put my hand on your face, on your hip?'”
“Just open communication, and being very professional,” she added. Their behind-the-scenes experience drastically differs from the on-screen portrayal of high school bullies, violent kinks, and lurking evil, which goes to show how effective such a careful process is, when it comes to crafting intimate scenes for television.
