Let’s get off the high horse, and be honest with ourselves. We love smoky hot sex (scenes) (in movies).
Some pointers before I begin:
- This list contains the good, the bad, and the mediocre.
- It is in no particular order, I write what I remember.
- No spoilers whatsoever.
- Please don’t accuse me of perpetuating the chauvinistic tradition by casting the Male Gaze, or being anti-feminist.
- My reasoning is this: everyone should enjoy sex.
- I apologize if you find the list too mainstream, too heterosexaully oriented. I can’t change my sexuality and what I find sexy, and I also can’t avoid a perspective in writing my own blog.
- I also apologize to subtitle haters.
So let’s get started.
I know HBO is not movies. It’s better than movies. Even the non sexy shows deserve to be on this list.
Wild Things (1998)
To be honest I don’t remember much of the plot, but it’s not a bad one. There is the famous car wash scene, and basically Denise Richards being hot throughout the movie. Find out more on IMDb.
There is a lot of sex going on, different kinds of sex. I don’t think it’s a particularly good movie. It’s more sensational (i.e., sexy) than meaningful. Plus they speak French, so whatever they are talking about, it must be sexy. IMDb
The Dreamers (2003)
It’s a movie that makes you think, but my deep thought and analysis on this movie are irrelevant to this list. All you need to know is there is Eva Green. IMDb
Se, Jie (Lust, Caution 2007)
It’s an Ang Lee movie, the Ang Lee from the Brokeback Mountain, not the Ang Lee from Hulk. I remember sneaking into the cinema with a fake ID (I was 17) to watch this movie when it first came out. Now that I think about this, I should watch it again. It’s deeper than those positions, and it has a great score. IMDb
La Piel que Habito (The Skin I Live In 2011)
It’s so good I remember every part of the movie. But I promise no spoilers, so simply go see it. Sorry for the choice of picture here, I just really don’t want to spoil anything. IMDb
Lucía y el Sexo (Sex and Lucia 2001)
Basic Instinct (1992)
It’s on the list because I only very recently watched the movie. In my defense, when the movie came out I was 2. IMDb
Mulholland Drive (2001)
The owls are not what they seem.. has almost nothing to do with the movie, except David Lynch. IMDb
I can’t believe I’m recommending a James Cameron movie. But it’s a classic, a classic tearjerker with laughs, romance, clichés, erotic drawing session (it is James Cameron’s hand), (literally) steamy sex scene, and death. IMDb
Because Michael Fassbender and his.. IMDb
Sexy Parts of Fifty Shades of Grey (2015)
Do NOT watch the entire movie (though she does have a nice wardrobe)! If you are bored to death, it’s not my fault! Just get a feel in the beginning, and skip through the movie to the sex scenes. Read the books in the same manner. #NotMyChristian IMDb
That’s the end of this part.
There will be more to come.
