Who Is RedCheeks Academy For?

Common Goals:

  • Safe and professional intimate scene production.
  • Career transition and media production skills diversification.
  • Ethical adult media production.
  • Breaking the stigma around Intimacy on Screen.

Age: 18 to 80, with most students falling between 25 – 45.

Who It’s Not For:

The RedCheeks Academy is not for people who are looking for a traditional intimacy certification education.

We do not give you any protocols or cover topics such as politics, activism, or data analytics.

It’s also not for people who care about certificates or grades. We are unaccredited, informal, and non-bureaucratic. We don’t give tests or grades.

Time Commitment

The duration of workshops is either 21, 35 or 70 days. Four to five hours per week, including live Zoom learning group meetings. Any additional homework is optional, though recommended, and can take one to two extra hours.

Weekly Format: Meet with learning group, ship project, give feedback, and reflect.

Timing based on selected time zone.
