Titillating, arousing, sexy and hysterical – one of these things is not like the others. Of course, being intimate with someone can be pretty funny at times but when most of us think about movie sex scenes, having a laugh riot doesn’t come to mind first.
If you fall into that camp, we’re here to introduce you to some of the times; filmmakers made us laugh the hardest while watching other people fumble about onscreen. It doesn’t matter if we are laughing at the scene or at what we’re watching, as the case in one notable instance. Our only criteria was that something raunchy was happening in front of us and our overriding reaction was chuckling, giggling or outright laughing.
10. There’s Something About Mary – Hair Gel
A gross-out comedy from the late nineties, this film is about a man, Ted, played by Ben Stiller who falls utterly in love with a woman, Mary, played by Cameron Diaz. Managing to get a date with the woman of his dreams, it gets suggested to Ted that the overwhelming desire he feels for her may cause him to blow it and perhaps maybe relieving the pressure will help things.
Opting to attend to his physical needs before their big date, so to speak, when it comes time to tidy up the resulting fluids, it is nowhere to be seen. When Ted meets Mary at his door, her excitement at some extra hair gel, which we know isn’t what she think it is, belies his anxiety that she may discover what it truly is. Mere seconds later, when we see that her hair, which she rubbed it into, has become rigid, it is undeniably hysterical somehow unexpected.
9. Easy A –Faking It
A movie that is far better than your typical teen comedy, Easy A, tells the story of a young woman whose peers think she is far more sexually experienced than reality and judge her for it. Our main character, Olive as played by Emma Stone, is a strong character that pretends to become involved with several young men who need the boost in confidence and reputation.
In one pivotal scene, Olive and her gay best friend, Brandon, pretend to have sex in a bedroom at a party so that the school’s jocks will stop picking on him. Two characters with zero attraction to one another, they proceed to awkwardly grunt, groan and carry on, all for the enjoyment of a crowd outside the door.
8. Wedding Crashers – Clinging in the Bathroom
A film about a duo of men who attend weddings explicitly to take advantage of the emotions welling up in all of the single ladies, watching one of them suddenly on the defensive was unexpected. After Vince Vaughn’s character, Jeremy, sleeps with a woman he can’t get away from because of his partner in crime, he finds himself in the crosshairs of a stage five clinger.
Isla Fisher, in a star-making role, plays Gloria, a nympho who pretends to be a virgin and instantaneously becomes infatuated with her arrogant companion. After he is cut, she tends to his wound & propositions him, all before comically threatening him in her family’s bathroom. Having such a beautiful woman captivated with you has never seemed more funny or frightening.
7. The Naked Gun 2½: The Smell of Fear – Chiseled Pottery
The Naked Gun franchise should go down in film history as some of the funniest spoof movies ever made. The second film, released in 1991, set their sights, during a sex scene on making fun of the famous pottery scene from the film Ghost.
Using their hands and feet to mold clay spinning on a wheel, the two lovers are soon covered in the substance. Then the older actor, Leslie Nielson has a much younger and far more muscled body double take his place in a downright silly and whimsical moment. Once they do the deed, we are treated to an increasingly ridiculous series of images meant to be metaphors for getting down. Our favorites have to be the hot dog vendor putting wieners in buns or a basketball player dunking.
6. Hot Tub Time Machine – Tears in the Tub
Focused on three men who travel back in time to the greatest trip of the youth, they soon realize that they are in control of their teen bodies and any change to their behavior could alter their present. Nick, one of them played by Craig Robinson, is a man who loves his wife dearly and despite any disputes they may have, wants nothing more than to remain faithful to her. That may be a problem.
Having spent some sexy time in a hot tub with a curvy young woman, played by Jessica Paré, during that trip, Nick feels like sleeping with her as he controls his youthful body is cheating. The fact that he hadn’t even met his spouse at the time of the actual event doesn’t stop him from blubbering to himself as a topless girl that would be most single men’s dream throws herself at him. Arguably the best example of sexy and funny, this scene epitomizes our list but isn’t as amusing as our top five picks.
5. Team America: World Police – Puppet Coitus
Matt Stone and Trey Parker, best known for creating South Park, are two incredibly sharp comedy minds who are capable of getting as raunchy or gross as anyone. The best example of how fearless they are may just be the insanely over the top sex scene that takes place in Team America, a movie starring marionettes.
After an unapologetically romantic scene concludes, we cut to a couple of naked puppets exploring one another’s bodies and banging relentlessly. In the uncut version of the film, things ramp up incredibly quickly, as the duo swiftly proceeds from more mundane positions to finally end up, shall we say, relieving themselves on one another.
4. Hot Shots! Part Deux – High-Class Peeping
In this movie, Charlie Sheen plays a character that is a takeoff on Rambo, who is coaxed into coming out of retirement. Seduced by patriotism into putting himself at risk, he is soon beguiled by his government contact, Michelle, and the two start to get hot and heavy in the back of a limo.
Unlike every other movie that uses a moving vehicle as the location for people to round the bases, this sequence focuses on the driver. Driven to distraction, he begins to use increasingly outlandish means to get a better view of his passengers. Filming them, looking through binoculars, filming them and taking pictures as he runs outside the window, it is perfectly silly. The Basic Instinct parody that takes place once they transition into a bedroom is simply icing on the cherry.
3. Kingpin – Paying The Rent
Roy Munson is a down on his luck former pro bowler, whose missing appendage has left him incapable of making the money he needs to pay his rent. Desperate to have his hideous landlord leave him alone, he saves her from a staged robbery which unfortunately doesn’t work once his ruse is discovered.
Left without recourse, he accepts a horrible proposal and trades sexual favors with a woman who doesn’t practice good hygiene and has teeth that are so coffee stained they look brown. Next seen vomiting as his newly satisfied and varicose veined lover lies in his bed, we are forced to envision what just happened as we chuckle through his pain.
2. The Room – Far Too Serious Bedroom Scene
The only movie on our list that wasn’t in on the joke, Tommy Wiseau’s debut film is renowned as one of the most enjoyably awful films ever made for good reason. Every single scene of the movie flies in the face of what makes a movie good, and the strange sex scene in no way bucks that trend.
A scene that takes place within the first few minutes of the film, a couple, one of whom is played by the film’s director and writer, laugh as a man-child tries to watch them knock boots. A man who looks like he could just as easily be thirty-five or fifty-five, Tommy puts more effort into lovingly shooting his own buttocks than anything else in the film’s runtime. Arguably best of all, the man’s fake sleeping afterward makes it seem like he may be an alien who has never experienced human sleep or seen what it looks like before.
1. Office Space – The Dream
The ultimate workplace comedy, for office dwelling types, this film’s greatest strength is the many unforgettable characters it created. Bill Lumbergh, a supervisor who seems to do nothing but irritate his employees and browbeat them about memos is the most hateable of all of the characters but Gary Cole’s portrayal of him is comedy gold.
During a nightmare the main character, who works under Bill, has, he is haunted by a vision of his girl having a good time with his boss. A boring character who is seen grinding away in the most tedious way possible, while he faces the camera and asks Peter about those TPS reports, we can’t stop laughing and cringing.
