S1 E6 was Yvonne’s first experience with a sex scene on the show with her co-star Langston Kerman. The costume designer on set, who prepped Yvonne with intimacy garments so she felt comfortable, gave her acting advice – “She (the costume designer) watched the first tape, she pulled me to the bathroom and said you got to let the man lead, you’re off beat. She gets behind me and she’s doing the motions …she’s very hands on. Then she’s like, go call him (Langston Kerman) in here. So we practiced in the bathroom,” said Yvonne.
