Working as an actor requires being open to some crazy things. Having to film a love scene can give even the most courageous and reputable actors some stage fright. But imagine if you had to do it for real?
Sometimes the flesh-to-flesh contact onscreen looks so real, you might wonder if the actors are really doing it. But sometimes we have more than an inkling. Here are several examples through the years.
Whether by design or by default, the topic of mainstream movies that contain real sex scenes tends to bring out the voyeur in all of us. Moviegoers and movie fan websites produce endless lists of what they consider the best movie sex scenes but it's interesting that those scenes are rarely the same as the famous and infamous mainstream movies that capture actors having real sex on the screen. Our fascination with these mainstream movies with real sex scenes seems a little odd in light of the multi-billion dollar porn industry, which offers "real" sex on film in every imaginable way.
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.
In the film industry, unsimulated sex is the presentation in a film of sex scenes where the actors engage in an actual sex actand are not just miming or simulating the actions. At one time in the United States such scenes were restricted by law and self-imposed industry standards such as the Motion Picture Production Code. Beginning in the late s, most notably with Blue Movie by Andy Warholmainstream movies began pushing boundaries in terms of what was presented on screen.
Fact one: People have sex. Fact two: Because sex is a natural human experience, some movie directors opt to include it in their films—unsimulated—for a heightened sense of realism, which means you're looking at real people having real intercourse. Here are 25 movies that broke taboos for just that.
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.
I understand it. We had to show how making love to someone is visceral. We had to convey how much of yourself you give over.
The ingredients for Good Movie Sex are: dramatic kissing, flashes of skin in the dark, a sexy musical overture, the art of implication, and walking around draped in a sheet afterward which I am convinced nobody has ever done. Truly realistic sexual imagery is, unfortunately, hard to come by in mainstream film, which almost always lacks the nuance, communication, and awkward clean-up that inevitably happens in real life sex. But there are a few sexy diamonds in the rough. To help you find them, here are 11 movies that you can stream right now with better depictions of sex than you probably saw in your sex ed class.
