The coolest, and really only, privilege that you earn for turning 17 is the ability to watch rated-R movies all by yourself in a theater. It increases your ability to watch sex scenes and bloody violence on a huge screen by at least ten fold. But, in the age of the internet, that wait time is no more! There's plenty of ways to watch all of the best sex scenes right in the dark comfort of your own home. Not all R-rated movie sex scenes are created equal, though, so you'll need our guide.
When choosing the 10 Best Rated R Movie Sex Scenes, it is important to watch hundreds of R rated sex scenes to make sure you make the right choices. We don't want to misguide you. Also, we want to watch a lot of R Rated sex scenes. So this really worked out well.
- Monster's Ball. Everyone had been waiting, some of us not so patiently, for Halle Berry to bare all. She did, and despite having Billy Bob Thornton in it, it still is the best R Rated sex scene ever.
- Wild Things. What happens between Neve Cambell and Denise Richards in this movie could short circuit your brain if you don't look away every once in a while. The pool scene has been viewed by literally every male over the age of twelve. It is also the leading cause of lesbianism. Check the facts.
- Showgirls. The R Rated version of this movie doesn't cut out the horrible plot, bad dialogue, or general cheesiness. It only cuts out an awesome lap dance scene and some other choice nudity. Still, there's plenty there. And everyone who's ever said, "I don't want to see Jessie Spano naked," has followed that statement up by laughing and saying, "No, I'm kidding. Of course I want to see Jessie Spano naked."
- Basic Instinct. Sharon Stone. She could be having sex with a house plant and it would belong on the 10 Best Rated R Sex Scenes.
- 9 1/2 Weeks. Actually, there are no sex scenes in this movie. There are only making love scenes.
- Secretary. For everyone who has ever thought about having sex in the office they work in (and by that we mean: "Anyone who has ever worked in an office"), Maggie Gyllenhaal and James Spader have an R Rated treat for you.
- Boogie Nights. All in all a pretty sexual film, a love scene between Mark Wahlberg and Julianne Moore still manages to stand out as extra sexual.
- 8 Mile. Brittany Murphy and Eminem. You would think that almost any sex scene combination with Eminem wouldn't work, but this one does.
- Thomas Crown Affair. Renee Russo and who cares. It's Pierce Bosnan, and it's a great R Rated sex scene.
- Fight Club. We all wish we could make love like Tyler Durden and Marla Singer. The only thing nastier and dirtier than the sex they are having in the movie is the room they are having it in. Dirty, awesome R rated sex scene.
