No shade to good pornbut sometimes you just want a little something more, like a whole plotline and characters you actually care about beyond Wait, so did he actually come over just to deliver that pizza? Luckily for everyone, sexy movies do exist. Like, loads of sexy movies.
Welcome to Sexpositions, a weeklong Vulture celebration of sex scenes in movies and on TV. Sex scenes have a rich, varied tradition in the cinema. In the s, they were commodified in startling ways.
The film Working with a Daphne du Maurier short story, Roeg gives us Laura Christie and John Sutherlanda married couple who travel from Britain to Venice for his job after losing their young daughter in a drowning accident. Why is it so groundbreaking? It just feels so real.
Sex scenes can be funny, they can be intense, and they can be romantic. They can involve puppets, or multiple people, or Sharon Stone. They can play into murder plots, explore dark fantasies, or simply be weird as hell.
There's no denying the extreme steaminess of the unforgettable scene between Mila Kunis and Natalie Portman in Black Swan It's already expected that a movie about porn's going to have a lot of sex, and Boogie Nights doesn't hold back. In one of the very first scenes, young Eddie Adams Mark Wahlberg gets to shoot an adult film with veteran porn star Amber Waves Julian Mooreand things go from 0 to real quick.
These formative cinematic experiences have helped make us the gay sexual creatures we are today. This is not a comprehensive list, and only represents films available to stream. Just a hunch!
As titillating as the phrase "full frontal nudity" may sound, baring it all on screen is not always a sexy endeavor. Truth be told, nudity can be as frightening for an audience as it is for the thespian tasked with dropping trou see The Shining. Then there's also the gender aspect to consider, the fact that women are more often the ones to bare it all, while shots of naked men on film, for whatever reason, consistently causes a stir. Going back to the Forgetting Sarah Marshall example.
Back in the days of yore, it was a rarity to even see a post-sex "we're under the covers" scene on television. But TV has gotten more progressive and open-minded about intercourse yay! In other words, sex is normal, and there's no reason to shy away from it on television.
Make them too steamy and you run the risk of veering into porn territory. Hold back and your leads may end up looking like cold fish. Out Of Sight was the film which introduced many to the talents of Jennifer Lopez and cemented George Clooney as a bona-fide movie star, and this sizzling sex scene undoubtedly played a big part.
