Sex scenes on movie reel

Settling down for a romantic evening with your significant other? Or maybe you’re sneaking over to see that friend who your significant other doesn’t know about yet?

Either way, chances are this Valentine’s Day, you and yours may be hunkering down in front of the warm glow of the television screen. Thanks in large part to our lack of a social life, we present several movies, in no particular order, containing scenes that titillate and arouse.

The Postman Always Rings Twice (1981)
In this movie, Frank (Jack Nicholson) is a drifter who comes to town and becomes involved in a sadomasochistic affair with local hottie Cora (Jessica Lange). Cora is a femme fatale, so she and Frank plan to murder her husband.

The sex scene makes the list for raw passion. Though it begins in a very rough fashion (remember the S&M), it turns up the heat as Lange sweeps the kitchen table clean. Though there is no nudity, the ensuing sex is so hot, audiences assumed the pair were actually doing the deed on the screen.

Shortbus (2006)
Considering the movie opens with self-fellatio, Shortbus knocks all the other titles out of the park when it comes to raunchy rough-housing.

Ever wondered what happened to Sook-Yin Lee, former Much Music VJ? Well, in this film you can follow her adventures as a sex counselor while she tries to achieve her first orgasm.

Whatever your flavour, this movie is everything but vanilla. From orgies to sadomasochism, the indie film bares it all. In fact, there are so many sex-scenes, we couldn’t even choose a favourite.

History of Violence (2005)
It’s not very often a movie shows the “69” position between a married couple while the wife is wearing a cheerleading outfit. In fact, we can’t think of any others.

In addition to the novelty of having sex scenes add to character development, this film also gets a bonus for realism " Mortensen and Bello did not use body doubles for the film. Hot.

Monster’s Ball (2001)
If seeing Halle Berry in the nude isn’t enough to rocket this entry into the elite, the spirited copulation, carnal moans and glistening sweat cement the film’s status. Bad boy prison guard Billy Bob Thornton has steamy sex with Berry; the scene is also laced with just enough passion and emotion for it to pass for more than mere fucking. A must-see " but not with your parents at age 15. Trust us.

True Romance (1993)
For all those girls out there who thought maybe " just maybe " love at first sight is still possible, this tasteful silhouetted sexin’ is for you. The scintillating screenplay written by Quentin Tarantino gets hot and heavy right from the get-go.

Christian Slater and Patricia Arquette are naughty and nude within the first 15 minutes. Kissing and mutual titillation are shown through artful, bluish shadows. The two lovebirds switch up their positions once or twice during the three-minute stint.

For the raunchier readers, side-boob is prevalent, and the only penetration you’ll see are tongues in mouths.

Bound (1996)
Simply put, the hottest lesbian sex scene in the history of film. Showing they can do more than show Keanu Reeves spinning in slow-motion, the Wachowski brothers consulted sex educator Susie Bright on how to make the scene as steamy as possible.

Suffice to say, the scene worked out. Jennifer Tilly and Gina Gershon make the scene both arousing and believable " top marks all around.

Team America: World Police (2004)
Yeah, it’s all for jokes. But we think watching gonadless marionettes hump each other with unlikely vigor is just too hilarious to pass up.

The variety of positions (well over a dozen) is incredible, including acts rarely seen outside of a porno like “tossing salad” and “the piledriver” " if you don’t know what those positions involve, feel free to ask your friends.

Though it’s hard to stop laughing as the soft-focus lens zooms in on some scatological lovemaking, this scene gets points for sheer ingenuity and uniqueness.
