The subject of leaks of sexual videos is more topical than ever. ‘Intimacy’, one of the latest Netflix releases has climbed to the number 1 position on the platform in Spain, coinciding with the controversy of Santi Millán. On this subject, the actresses of the series have expressed their position.
‘Intimacy’ deals with the leaking of a sexual video starring a politician and how this affects her life, personal and professional, and her environment. The series revolves around a theme that, sadly, It is a real and increasingly common problem in our day to day.
“I also have networks and many times I wonder to what extent our intimacy is exposed and is recorded on the network,” says Yune Nogueiras (Leire in the series). “Social networks have turned intimacy into something for sale“Adds Emma Suarez (Look).
Ana Wagener (Alicia) explains that the series is about how this issue affects the life of the person whose intimacy has been exposed and to its environment:
There is still a long way to go because the victim continues to be blamed. Education has a lot to do with it. I believe that the networks dehumanize even the repercussion of these cases, which can destroy lives and the environment of those who suffer from it
Patricia López Arnaiz (Bego) explains another important point of the series: how it is a situation that affects men and women differently:
The series shows that blaming the victim is very much integrated into the story of the “sinful woman”, which is very old. (…) the interesting thing is not to point to the guy who started all this but that the rest of us look at each other, participate and generate this violence from our little trials. You have to understand that the fact of not playing the video can change things a lot.
Itziar Ituño (Malen) knows very well what it is to suffer cyber bullying and also emphasizes the social scourge What do these types of leaks mean?
The networks are a problem because of their impunity (…) anyone can make a massive attack on you and stay so hot at home (…) When a video of a man cheating on his partner is leaked, people applaud. But when she is a woman, then she is a whore (…) I don’t know if we evolved or regressed
‘Intimacy’ leads the Top 10 series on Netflix Spain but it will be necessary to see if it fulfills its objective of educating viewers on this subject or the message ends up being lost along the way.
