Can regular people use this service because I just make it up as I go along. I feel like I could use some structure.

I once temporarily lost an ex-girlfriend's confidences to an aspiring fight choreographer. She said the bottom of his commode was pitch black. Rich kid.

I'm thinking someone along the lines of the Simpson's character voiced by Jon Lovitz will be the low end of the market in three years time, but I hope not.

I would apply for that job. But I lack intimacy experience.

The Deuce famously used one of these, what with all the nudity, farking, and nude people farking. Did they invent this profession or does it go back farther than that?

IIRC, Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman needed an intimacy coordinator to have onscreen chemistry (for Far and Away).

Difficulty: They were married at the time.

They were pretty weird as a couple. If you can't make that work on screen, you wonder what was going on behind closed doors. They're not together anymore, so...

Granted, there's probably a vibe not unlike trying to get pandas to mate in captivity. But you have couples who ooze such great chemistry together on and off screen:

Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward
Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn
Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton (hot mess IRL, but still good chemistry on screen)
Lauren Bacall and Humphrey Bogart


To name a few.

Working at a swingers resort may have actually prepared me for a transition to a fabulous new career in big budget skeevy voyeurism.

When I hear "intimacy coordinator," I think of the person who had to organize the puppeteers from the Team America sex scene.

You'd think it would have been easy with everything they had in common. Liking boys, for instance.

CSB about a time I could have used an intimacy coordinator. Or maybe a fight coordinator.

This was on stage, not in a movie, and part of a community theater production in a rather conservative small Mississippi town back in 1983. Can't recall the name of the play, but it was a comedy set a hundred years prior. I played a young politician running for office. I was 27 at the time and in pretty good shape. The actress playing my newlywed wife was named Polly. She was fresh out of college and had done several plays there. Attractive and capable. This was my first real stage role. We had some Victorian-level intimate scenes, no shedding of any clothing, obviously nothing extreme. This was when I learned how to do a stage kiss, and since we had one fight scene near the end of act I, how to take a stage slap. Except that Polly had no idea how to deliver a stage slap. I had to take a full-force slap to the cheek during every act I rehearsal. I should have said something except I didn't know any better myself. Finally we moved on to act II. At the end of the act/play, we've kissed and made up, and I finally carry her over the threshold. Except the stage direction was not detailed. So, first time we rehearsed the act, I bent down, hit her low with my shoulder and did a fireman lift. She screamed bloody murder, but the director loved it. So I got to keep it for the show.

/Polly and I had a brief, torrid fling IRL after the show was over, which taught me NEVER have torrid flings with actresses, since most occupy the top end of the Shelly Gillespie zone

The problem with faked intimacy is that it becomes real intimacy.

The good news is that for couples who lack intimacy, going through the motions of intimacy creates intimacy.

To a degree. Which is why a lot of actors have issues with getting together with castmates, and then the whole thing falling apart after the rush of the show/movie is done, and then they're just sort of sitting there, looking at each other and wondering WTF did we just do for the last four months?

What's wrong with a kiss, boy? Hmm? Why not start her off with a nice kiss?You don't have to go leaping straight for the clitoris like a bull at a gate. Give her a kiss, boy. Nibbling the earlobe, uhh, kneading the buttocks, and so on and so forth. So, we have all these possibilities before we stampede towards the clitoris,Watson.

Right. Go over there, and put this bit inside that bit, and smile a lot. Got it?

What came to mind was Clooney and Jennifer Lopez in Out Of Sight, but even that was 1998!

I guess that kind of chemistry is rare. Or we just don't see many IRL couples also starring in movies nowadays. My next thought was Kira Sedgewick and Kevin Bacon, but I haven't seen them in anything together. No TV stars come to mind.

There was Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie in Mr. and Mrs. Smith.  They definitely had chemistry in that film - heck, it's pretty much the reason Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston divorced.

When real intimacy fades over time one or more parties will often begin faking aspects of it in order to preserve the status quo and/or avoid admitting to themselves or their parter that they have lost interest.  Eventually it becomes more of a habit they continue than a meaningful act.
