Whether you choose to view the following scenes as something to catch alongside (or inside) your partner, or films to omit entirely from family movie night, these films really bring the heat. You’ve been warned.
10 sex scenes so steamy, they could make a stripper blush
TitanicBefore Jack met his fateful end, he and Rose went at it inside a car, inside a ship (a vehicular turducken). The sex was steamy, and the car’s windows quickly fogged up as if it were inhabited by a group of teenage stoners.Paramount Pictures
9 ½ WeeksWhile Mickey Rourke resembles Basinger more than he does his former self, there was no denying the innate sexual chemistry between the two in 1986’s 9 ½ weeks. Remember the scene in which Rourke feeds Basinger everything from rotini pasta to Buckley’s cough syrup? Of course you do, it was red hotGalactic Films
American PsychoFilming yourself having sex is one thing. Filming yourself having sex, admiring your reflection the entire time, then savagely murdering both hookers you’ve hired to make said film is another. American Psycho, Patrick Bateman orchestrates this sadistic threesome to the soundtrack of Phil Collins, no less.Lions Gate Films
Basic InstinctSharon Stone. Her name is all I feel there is to say about this now classic film. The film — seductive leg cross and all — is pretty much an hour and a half homage to Stone (circa 1992) and her effortless sex appeal. However, as many men will realize throughout the sexy thriller, looks can be deadly.Carolco Pictures
Eyes Wide ShutThis hyper-sexualized film stars former lovers Nicole Kidman and Tom Cruise. The scene that stands out most is when Cruise stumbles upon a masked orgy. Dozens upon dozens of naked people with creepy clay masks are having sex in every conceivable position, and Cruise leads us through the entire lavish setting. Warner Bros.
Cruel IntentionsRyan Phillipe and Reese Witherspoon were very much in love at one point. This is proven in Cruel Intentions, when they make love to Counting Crow’s Colorblind. At one point, he even asks if she’s okay (she’s was a virgin up until this point), making it known that the former player is actually falling in love with the innocent Witherspoon.Columbia Pictures
FearThe film stars Mark Wahlberg and Reese Witherspoon who each play very contrasting characters that fall in love. In one sexy scene, the two ride a roller coaster, and she rides his hand as well. Naturally, she climaxes as the roller coaster takes its first major dive. Imagine Entertainment
CloserIn 2004’s Closer Clive Owen, Julia Roberts, Natalie Portman and Jude Law are embroiled in a sort of sexy love square (or rectangle?). The hottest scene is when Owen confronts Portman at the strip club she is employed. Flirty and filthy banter is exchanged, and you want them to go at it more than they do.Sony Pictures
SecretarySecretary is your clichéd boss/assistant play on sexual tension, except these two indulge these desires. James Spader, who plays a powerful and dominant lawyer, hires the submissive Gyllenhaal as his assistant and the two become deeply involved in a BDSM relationship. Think 50 Shades of Grey .TwoPoundBag Productions
UnfaithfulA married suburban couple (Gere, Lane) are in a loving relationship that’s lost its sexual spark. Lane soon finds herself in the arms of a much younger man — with a six-pack and French accent (lady-kryptonite). Cue dangerous hot sex that Lane has been longing for. Fox 2000 Pictures
