The 10 best film sex scenes run the range from hot to humorous, sexy to strange. Film sex scenes are becoming more rare these days, as it seems we are making a return to puritanical attitudes of the past. These film sex scenes, however, do not take that into account one bit. Here they are, the best film sex scenes of all time.
