Sex and Hollywood go hand in hand. Both on and off screen, sex sells. The film industry is always rife with rumours and gossip about relationships and sex, so it is hardly surprising that these issues and topics are used within the films themselves. In this time of open self-expression and sexual liberation, it is rare to find a film that doesn’t have a sex scene in it, bar Pixar films. This isn’t a new thing, looking back at films like Fatal Attraction and Basic Instinct in the 90s that have iconic sex scenes, or films such as Boogie Nights that are based on the sex industry itself. Even Richard Gere had a crack in American Gigolo.
More recently, films have begun to tackle more taboos regarding sex, such as exploring things like BDSM as well as relationships that are not necessarily the most accepted in society. Michael Fassbender stars in Shame which focuses on sex addiction, a topic that is explored on much more graphic detail in the two part Lars von Trier epic Nymphomaniac Parts 1 and 2.
This year has been no different with some mainstream and indie films based on sex. Sexual awakenings and taboo relationships are explored and investigated, but which films offer the best sex scenes? Which films offer those scenes that will stay in your head (or bedroom)? This countdown takes a look at the top 10 movies with the best sex scenes of 2015.
9 Knock Knock
8 Hot Tub Time Machine 2
This film bombed at the box office. Following on from the first film (which also features a hot bath time sex scene) the second instalment sees Nick in trouble. So the hot tub is fired up and the not-so-smart boy group end up in the future instead, which means they have to alter the future to save the past. Or something. It brought in less than the opening weekend cost ($5,963,324) and it has received hideous reviews from critics, scoring a pitiful 14% on Rotten Tomatoes. What the film does provide us with, however, are some fun sex scenes.
7 Ex Machina
Ex Machina follows Caleb, a coder at a large internet company. When he is chosen to spend a week with the reclusive CEO, things do not go quite the way he expected. The film looks at the effects of true artificial intelligence and the consequences of that. This film went down a storm with critics and has been tipped as one of the best films of the year. The film doesn’t actually involve any specific sex scenes, however the self-exploration of the female robot characters (Alicia Vikander from Man From U.N.C.L.E) is intense and erotic, which is why it has made it into this top 10.
This ethereal and limbo-like film has more than one sex scene, but it is the first one that puts it in this top 10. When a group of teens and marketing worker Robyn (Miranda Raison) are killed when a club collapses they find themselves in a random house in the middle of nowhere. Whilst here, they try to discover why they are in this house and a number of secrets are revealed.
4 Diary Of A Teenage Girl
In a film that focuses on a 15-year-old girl sleeping with her mother’s older boyfriend, it is inevitable there will be some sex scenes involved. Diary of a Teenage Girl offers plenty, and it doesn't leave much to the imagination. This is not a clothed quickie like in the similar Michael Fassbender film Fish Tank. The film has at least a dozen varying sex scenes between True Blood star Alexander Skarsgard and 22-year-old UK actress Bel Powley.
1 Fifty Shades Of Grey
With the book series becoming a raunchy sex-filled sensation, it was inevitable that this film adaptation would feature high in this list just as it was inevitable that the film would contain a ridiculous number of sex scenes. Reports state that the 7 main sex scenes make up approximately 20 minutes of running time. That equates to one fifth of the film dedicated to hanky panky! The film is so raunchy it has been banned in Malaysia where it was described as being more like pornography than film. The book obviously passed them by. With two sequels planned, there will be much more whipping, spanking and God knows what else to keep all those BDSM fans happy in the cinema. But not too happy. Hopefully.
