Making love to Counting Crows? Sounds weird, but it is actually perfect and a totally romantic soundtrack for those quiet, quick, afternoon delights.
The problem with a straight man filming a lesbian sex scene is that it often feels exploitative. But Naomi Watts and Laura Harring's chemistry is both tender and incredibly erotic. There is love, but also a whole heckuva bunch of lust.
This isn't a sexy movie. There isn't a lot of eroticism throughout the picture. But the in-your-face, raw desire between Eminem and Brittany Murphy is alarming — and incredibly real.
While this is contrasting with the initial sex scene between Maria Bello and Viggo Mortensen (which is filled with a goofy sense of marital bliss), the violent undertones bring up a sense of physicality that Cronenberg wants us to relate to sex. Fortunately, however, Mortensen and Bello's chemistry and relationship let us remember that — underneath the secrets — they still really want (and care for) each other. Also, real talk: Viggo Mortensen on the stairs. There isn't much else to say.
The only thing gratuitous about the sex in this movie is that it's all foreplay to a murder. Aside from that, Ang Lee is a master of making explicit sex scenes feel sexy rather than voyeuristic.
Now this, this is what unleashing the animal inside you means. And though the movie kind of has a weird S&M, Stockholm-syndrome vibe, watching Justin Timberlake do it is, well, hot.

Though this movie is anything but romantic, the sexual chemistry (when applicable) is on fire. It's unfortunate it couldn't save their relationship, but it is a testament to the incredible acting capacity of Michelle Williams and Ryan Gosling.
If we could, we'd embed the entire movie here, because it's one big sex scene. Instead, here's a compilation of the most important moments in a movie of self-discovery through sex.
Sharon Stone's infamous leg-crossing was merely foreplay leading up to this all-out bedroom brawl that calls for a cold shower immediately after watching.
Literary-wise, this brief moment is enough to doom the character's lives. Briony's nosiness, jealousy, and naivety ruin the passion that's been building between Cecilia and Robbie. Their entire relationship thrives off this scene. It's their rock as much as it's their demise. Despite all of this, the intensity of their sexuality is palpable.
This is both the plot's literal and figurative climax. The tension between Gael García Bernal and Diego Luna peaks, thanks to their mutual attraction to the effortlessly sensual Maribel Verdú. Sex, in this case, is a tool for personal growth rather than primal instinct.
Though adaptations and remakes are always headache-inducing, this deftly acted film ups the heat of the 1955 version by adding some seriously sexy sex. Actually, we can't tell who is sexier: Ralph Fiennes or Julianne Moore. Let's call it a tie.
Fun fact: This scene comes on an hour and nine minutes — a.k.a. 69 minutes — into the film. Aside from that, just uttering the phrase "Natalie Portman and Mila Kunis in bed together" brings to mind the naughtiest of thoughts. Sex and danger make for dangerous but exciting partners; this scene is a testament to that.
What is lovely about this scene is the sheer "coming-of-agedness" to it. Innocence is contrasted with desire, and Mazzy Star hums dreamily in the background.
The power of this film lies in the fact that there isn't any graphic sex scenes. The entire movie is one big phone-sex session, leading your imagination down a path that's as raunchy as you want it to be.
Watching these two women get it on is enough to turn anyone, regardless of sexuality, onto the sexual prowess of Angelina Jolie.
