10 Greatest Movie Sex Scenes
The 10 Greatest Movie Sex Scenes are vastly debated amongst groups. Usually the viewers are so entangled in the story and the lives of the characters, the sex scene seems to be extremely gratifying. Often times, the sex scenes in movies can be better than porn (yes, its true) simply because of the production quality and the story line. However, each sex scene, for each film, brings something interesting to the table. Here are the 10 Greatest Movie Sex Scenes:
- "Cold Mountain". After years of wandering the vast countryside of America, Jude Law's character finally makes it home to his sweet love. On a cold night, the two get married and certainly consummate their marriage in a cabin with a fire. The longing of the characters is finally rewarded and so are the viewers.
- "Atonement". This film has one of the most beautiful sex scenes ever recorded. From Kiera Knightley's green dress falling down her knee to her foot being lifted out of her shoe, this scene drips with beauty.
- "Meet Joe Black". When Brad Pitt's character is the angel of death and is making love to a woman for the first time, it makes for a sweet and oddly erotic sex scene. Joe Black has the curiosity of a child and the wisdom of an old man all at once. Making love for the first time for any character is a great sex scene in a movie.
- "Brokeback Mountain". The scene in the tent when the two main characters finally cave in to their desires creates a sex scene that only lends itself to the films love story. For most viewers this scene was a bit difficult to watch because of its desire to fight social norms and political mores.
- "The Notebook". When the two lead characters finally get their chance at each other, rain, sleet, or snow can't stop them. Drenched from the southern rainfall, Noah and Allie make one of the best sex scenes in film history. This scene is so great because of the years that pass between the two characters seeing each other. The build up to them meeting again makes for one of the best sex scenes in movie history.
- "Basic Instinct". Sharon Stone basically shows the chauvinistic character played by Michael Douglas who's boss. The sex scene also acts as a symbolic struggle for power. Whenever there is a sex scene in a movie that also has a sub context of greater depth, it certainly goes in the books for greatest movie sex scene.
- "Eyes Wide Shut". There are many sex scenes in this movie, however, the one between Nicole Kidman and Tom Cruise is one for the records. Though they were still married at the time, the two have a sex scene that is not only memorable, but slightly evil.
- "8 Mile". Only in "8 Mile" would a sex scene in a car factory make sense. The motor city based film shows Eminem and the late Brittany Murphy partaking in some "on-the-job" activities. There isn't any romance in particular and there isn't much beating around the much, much like Eminem's songs.
- "An Officer And A Gentleman". This sex scene is a classic, romance scene filled with all the trappings of love and its complexities. It doesn't shy away from beneath-the-sheets social issues and that's what makes this one of the greatest movie sex scenes.
- "Little Children". Who thought doing laundry would be so sexy? The two main characters certainly seemed to think so after they found a kinship with one another and their loneliness.
