Greatest Sex Scenes of All Time  

Lushy has gotten me into a list mood, so keep an eye out for a few in the future. Today, I'm counting down some of me favorite sex scenes from movies in the past couple decades. Let me first make it clear though that while I'm a big fan of Skinemax films, they won't be making this list... sorry Shannon Tweed!

The Thomas Crown Affair - Pierce Brosnan / Renee Russo: Probably the best that I can remember in recent memory, a set of stairs hasn't seen a workout like that since the first Rocky.

40 Days & 40 Nights - Josh Hartnett / Shannon Sossyman: I've only caught this for the first time recently, so maybe that's why it's in my head, but the scene between these two with the flower (lilly?) was a nearly perfect synergy of romantic imagery and downright h0ttness. Plus, it doesn't hurt that Shannon is one of the most stunning actresses out there today.

Wild Things - Matt Dillon / Denise Richards / Neve Campbell: What, like I'm gonna forget this one, which is one of my favorite movies of all time? Yeah, right! Couple the threesome with the later pool hookup between Neve and Denise, this is just awesome. Even the fact Neve doesn't get nekkid doesn't hurt the sheer genius of this scene. Any damn if it doesn't make one want some champagne.

9 1/2 Weeks - Mickey Rourke / Kim Basigner: I consider this one to be the rite-of-passage movie for a young teenager. Anything you may have caught beforehand pales in comparison to this classic. Now, while Kim's solo performance in the chair could qualify on its own, and should have been awarded an Oscar, it's the fruit scene with blindfold that puts this movie on a pedestal all it's own. Probably a bit tame by today's standards, there's a reason this is considered timeless.

Wild Orchid - Mickey Rourke / Jaqueline Bisset Carré Otis : To be honest, I haven't seen this one in a quite a while, but was reminded of it recently because Rourke was in it. The thing I remember most about this one was how real the scene looked. You couldn't help but question... were these two going the extra mile as actors? It was raw, and it was filmed beautifully. This is one for the video collection... gonna have to remember that.

Titantic - Leonardo DiCaprio / Kate Winslet: I know, I know, this one almost negates the whole list, but one can't disregard Leo and Kate's... achem, performance in that old car. Not only were the windows in that car steamed up, I swear my glasses were too, in the theater. Of course, seeing as Winslet is on my "laminated list", I may be a bit partial.

So, I'm sure there's numerous others, probably more to come... anyone have any other favorites?

The scene in Wild Orchid was real. They were both dating at the time and thought it would be more realistic. They were right!
Good picks, but I am upset you are leaving the ole skinamax out. The Pamela Principle 2 so deserves to be on this list...
Others I would add are The Specialist (Sly and Sharon), Caddyshack (a pretty good scene for a screwball comedy), Friday the 13th (Kevin Bacon and a chick) and of course The Dinner Party (Baking scene viewed during poker tutorial)

The scene with Meg Tilly and Gina Gershon in "Bound".

Mind you, there might be a censored or "R" rated version floating around in America. Not sure about that. But the uncut version is super hot.

Oh, and the movie "The Lover" also featured a "Did they really have sex?" type encounter. I tend to believe they did, if only because it was awkward and fumbling a lot.

You just had to include Titanic, didn't you. Goddammit!!

Anyway, the Thomas Crown affair scene is one of my all time favorites. I actually have that DVD.

Can't think of any others right now. I'll get back to you if I do.

I think I'm retarded. No matter how hard I try, I can't think of any good love scenes in movies. I'm drawing a total blank. Does that say anything about me? `:/

I've heard both thoughts on Wild Orchid, but accoridng to IMdb, Otis has denied it fairly recently. Oh well.. I still bought the DVD last night :-)

I've steered away from Skinemax only because they're so many that can go on the list, and I don't wanna come off as a complete perv.

MC... I can't beelive I forgot about Bound, the pure defination of humana-humana-humana, good catch!

I almost put Team America: World Police, but thought it may have come off a bit... weird.

And Stan, don't worry... at least you know what tea bag is :-)
