This page shows you the list charts. By default, the movies are ordered by how many times they have been marked as a favorite. However, you can also sort by other information, such as the total number of times it has been marked as a dislike.
The following listing of these influential, memorable and classic sex scenes and films (chronologically by year) takes into account all of the available surveys of this type of material, and attempts to provide an informed, detailed, unranked grouping of the most influential and groundbreaking films and scenes. It also considers other films with sex-related scenes, including portrayals of sex and/or nudity, and factors in a film's (or scene's) notoriety and infamy and the stars involved. Some of the most notorious (or infamous) films are quite mediocre, usually made as an excuse to display nudity or eroticism of a star performer.
There’s a reason that any talk of sex in film comes back around to certain titles again and again. Getting two (or more) attractive actors to mash their faces together and huff and puff for the camera is relatively easy. Shooting a memorable sex scene is hard.
We here at IFC News and Nerve.com sat through a lot of movie sex to make this list — oh, we suffered through it somehow. But even after all that ranking, weighing and debating, we’d be hard pressed to define exactly what it is that makes a sex scene great — in true Justice Potter Stewart fashion, we just know it when we see it, whether it shocks us, titillates us, turns us on, breaks our hearts or confounds our expectations.
The oldest film on this list is from 1896; the newest is from last year. You’ll notice we decided to leave certain standards in the field off. And as always, these lists are a launching point for you to tell us what you think.
This list is part of filmsite.org's History of Sex in Cinema and compiles the 1980s' "low-brow, teasy, R-rated sexy teen comedies with gratuitous nudity, mindlessly weak plots, and raunchy profanity, designed for horny adolescents, usually teenaged males with raging hormones and active fantasy lives who were looking for glimpses of naked girls and their first sexual conquest (a 'Let's Get Laid' sub-genre)."
The list is unranked.
[quote]You know what makes people uncomfortable? Horror. You know what else? Sex! Even though it's one of the most human of activities, getting sexy makes people as squeamish as jump scares and gore. And yet, like anything you'd see in a slasher flick, sex is pretty exciting—which is why it pairs so well with the horror genre. (And hey, monsters need love, too!) Here are some of the sexiest scary movies ever made.[/quote]
"This is a list of banned films.
For nearly the entire history of film production, certain films have been banned by film censorship or review organizations for political or moral reasons or for controversial content, such as racism. Censorship standards vary widely by country, and can vary within an individual country over time due to political or moral change.
Many countries have government-appointed or private commissions to censor and rate productions for film and television exhibition. While it is common for films to be edited to fall into certain rating classifications, this list includes only films that have been explicitly prohibited from public screening."
