"It was the same in season one," says Lizzy Talbot, who has won praise from cast members for her work as intimacy coordinator on the Netflix series, in an interview with Glamour. "There were loads of scenes that didn't make it. We always do more than we need to so there are many options in the edit. I think that that's a really important thing. I know people have been frustrated that there haven't been more (sex scenes), but part of it is that we want to give our absolute best. There are loads of scenes that don't make the final edit—that's just the world of film. What we are really confident in is that the sex scenes that are in, we're really proud of." Talbot was asked about Simone Ashley praising the show for having the female gaze come first. "That's been Bridgerton's position from day one, which is very cool because we know exactly what we're going for every time. The female gaze is the Bridgerton way," says Talbot. "That's just how we do it. Chris Van Dusen and the producers have been so clear about that from the beginning. It's never a battle. You're always going in knowing that's the standard. So it's really important when we're looking at that—the focus is going to be on the foreplay. It's always on the buildup, whether that's physical or emotional. That's where we have to put our emphasis, because there are so many shows that have penetrative sex and orgasms. Bridgerton is one of the few that make female pleasure its focus and goal."
