In a perfect world, there would be no embarrassing sex stories. No one would ever fall off beds, make weird noises, or stumble upon an unexpected surprise mid-coitus. But in reality, the coming together of bodies can be a clunky affair.
We can't even escape the awkward truths of the bedroom at the movies, because it often turns out that on-screen sex is just as disjointed as real-life sex.

These scenes will make you gasp, cringe, and wonder: What where the directors thinking? While some scenes are intentionally squirm-inducing (see: The 40 Year Old Virgin), many of them were filmed with the utmost seriousness. And that's the perplexing charm of these earnest scenes. They meant it!
