This is every man’s fantasy regardless of age, race, and religion. Orientation does matter here, because a gay guy wouldn’t be particularly impressed by the sight of two females smooching the hell out of each other. But what would a straight man like better than one woman? Exactly - TWO women! And if they are engaged in intimate play, this will already feel like heaven on earth. The thing that triggers such fantasies is pretty simple actually. You don’t need to be a shrink to come up with an explanation. When watching two women in the intimate act of kissing, guys imagine being in the scene. They simply presume there is a place for them in their bedroom.What's more, they don't have to fight the competition of another male party to get the ladies’ attention.
Lesbian makeout sessions aren't very common in mainstream cinema, and yet, if you care to do some thorough research, you’ll be surprised to find out that there are hundreds of such scenes. But we have done the job for you, so now we present you with our finest selection of 8 Hollywood girl-on-girl kisses we are excited about, and 8 others which we'd rather not see again.
16 Dakota Fanning & Kristen Stewart May Be Bad Girls In The Runaways (2010), But Their Kiss Is Veeery Good - THUMBS UP
The movie tells the true story of hard rock band The Runaways, with the duo Cherie Currie (Fanning) and Joan Jett (Stewart) being the binding link of the band. The two former child actresses claim their friendship isn’t based on work only, and when they are together they never talk about movie stuff. And it shows on the set - the two definitely have great chemistry. Although the script is based on an autobiographical book, the intimate moments between the heroines were not in the source material. This doesn’t mean, though, that they were squeezed out of nowhere. Cherie Curry herself said in an interview with Spin magazine that in the mid 70s everybody was experimenting with sex. And so were they. “We weren’t in love with each other. We just had fun. I like that in the film.” We like that, too, Cherie!
15 The Kiss In Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story (2004) Is Too Short - THUMBS DOWN
As the title suggests, the movie is about a group of misfits who enter a Las Vegas dodgeball tournament in order to save the gym of the protagonist, Peter LaFleur, played by Vince Vaughn. Following all the rules of the genre, they, of course, win the tournament although the other teams are way better than them. In their moment of victory, one of the players, Kate (Christine Taylor) gives LaFleur a juicy smooch. But before that, she turns to her unrevealed girlfriend, Joyce (Scarlett Shorvat), and gives HER a tongue kiss. LaFleur seems quite abash, but the audience loves the sudden turn. Yet, something is missing. It feels as if the scene was placed there just for the sake of it. It’s too short, too unengaging, and, honestly, Taylor is not convincing as a lesbian.
14 Escort Amanda Seyfried Passionately Kisses Julianne Moore In Chloe (2009) - THUMBS UP
In this 2009 erotic thriller, Seyfried plays an escort. She is hired by Catherine (Moore) to seduce her husband (Liam Neeson), whom she suspects is cheating on her. Although the kissing scene lasts for just a couple of seconds, it's very rewarding. Seyfried not only passionately kisses Moore who is old enough to be her mother, but she also strips naked for her. Actually, it’s Moore who rips open Amanda’s blouse. It’s an incredibly steamy and sensual scene mainly because Moore’s character is vulnerable and open to ANY kind of affection.
Julianne Moore is no stranger to kissing her female co-stars, but this scene with Amanda Seyfried can be ranked a bit higher than, let’s say, the one with Annette Bening from The Kids Are All Right (2010). There, the two actresses play a married lesbian couple.
13 The Piranha 3D Girl-On-Girl Smooch Is Too "Professional" - THUMBS DOWN
Although the kiss in the horror epic heavily tantalizes the senses and especially the crotch area of the viewers, it cannot be more obvious that to adult star Riley Steele this is JUST a job. In the film, the other starlet, Kelly Brook, plays a party girl (what else!). Before things get ugly with all the man-eating fish swimming around, she engages in some playful sexual activities with Riley. Of course, the film-makers are under no illusion that they have created an Oscar-material blockbuster. This popcorn thriller is a typical B-movie - lots of boobs, blood, and drama.
12 Natalie Portman And Mila Kunis' Embrace In Black Swan (2010) - THUMBS UP
We thought we had seen it all - man on girl, girl on man, man on man, girl on horse, man on kitchen mincer, you name it… But this… This hot embrace between Kunis and Portman was nothing we had seen in an R-rated, Oscar-winning movie before! Actually, the scene is one of the most talked about in film history. It even appeared on some of the most popular sites for adult content videos. When asked in interviews about the lip-locking episode, Kunis said this, “She’s a lovely kisser, very polite. But here’s a little-known fact: there’s one person in the world that both Ashton (Kutcher) and I have kissed, and that’s Natalie Portman!” Well, we had NEARLY forgotten about this fact! But not quite…
11 Denise Richards And Neve Campbell Getting Close In The Pool In Wild Things (1989) - THUMBS DOWN
It’s not the scene per se, it’s the whole movie that ruins it for us! Back in 1989, Wild Things was the forbidden fruit of VHS tapes for all teenage boys out there. Richards and Campbell are two classmates who falsely accuse their high-school guidance counsellor, played by Matt Dillon, of having sexually assaulted them. It may sound like a captivating plot, and they wanted to sell the final product as an "erotic thriller". However, it turned out to be nothing but a trashy B-movie, in which the only memorable scene was the one where the two young and hot actresses swap spit in a pool. But this is the most that can be squeezed out of it. And even Richards' reluctance to wear clothes cannot make up for the poor execution of the original idea. Such a waste of good material!
10 Scarlett Johansson & Penelope Cruz Make Out Red Room In Vicky Christina Barcelona (2008) - THUMBS UP
Woody Allen sure knows how to attract a male audience! His love letter to Barcelona is also a love message to all the guys whose sexual fantasies involve two of today’s hottest actresses. Penelope Cruz won an Oscar for her performance as the smoldering and wild Maria Elena in this comedy-drama film from 2008. In Maria Elena’s eyes (Johansson), Cristina is the missing link in her stormy relationship with her ex-husband, the artist Juan Antonio (played by Javier Bardem). The kiss that the actresses share takes place in a red-tinged photography dark room, and it is extremely erotic. Later on, the two have a threesome with Juan Antonio.
When the movie was released, the viewers were blown away and shocked at the same time. After seeing the movie ourselves, we feel forever indebted to Woody Allen for searing the image of that kiss into our memory!
9 The Girl-On-Girl Kiss In Cruel Intentions (1999) Is What It Is, Purely Instructional - THUMBS DOWN
Risking to sound blasphemous, we are going to call this kiss bo-o-o-o-ring although generations of men would still call it legendary. We’ve all seen the teenage version of the classic Dangerous Liaisons from 1988, and the scene between Kathryn and Cecile in the park is indeed memorable. Kathryn (played by Gellar) hatches a plan to corrupt innocent and naive Cecile (Blair) and starts by teaching her how a proper French kiss is done. BUT! The kissing lesson obviously makes unexperienced Cecile want more, but not us, the viewers. It’s mechanical, it’s instructional, it’s simply not sexy at all. And yes, Cecile exclaims, “That was cool”, but what else can you expect from a beginner! We, on the other hand, have seen better.
8 Megan Fox & Amanda Seyfried In Jennifer’s Body (2009) Killed It - THUMBS UP
In case you have missed to see Jennifer’s Body (which is an unbelievable thing to do!), here is a wrap-up of what is going on. Megan Fox plays a possessed high school cheerleader who specializes in collecting the souls of her classmates. Her brainy friend (Seyfried) tries to put an end to the horror. But let’s fast forward to the notorious kiss between the two. Although it looks so sensual and 100% real, Fox claims in an interview that while filming it, Seyfried was “extremely uncomfortable” and would have “giggling fits” between the takes. Fox herself was just the opposite. She says, “I feel much safer with girls, so I felt more comfortable kissing Amanda than kissing any of the other people I had to kiss.” Lucky Amanda! And lucky us for having seen it happen!
7 Alyssa Milano Shows It All Off In Embrace Of The Vampire (1995) But It Doesn't Work - THUMBS DOWN
The kissing scenes are not working miracles in this erotic horror movie. And we can blame it on Alyssa Milano. She is obviously using the film as an opportunity to change her cheesy Hollywood image from the time she played in Who’s the Boss? People were already fed up with the cute Samantha Micelli she had been playing for eight years. That's why Milano decided to show everybody she was all grown up, and hot, and even capable of getting it on with another girl. There are four, quite hot, we must admit, lesbian scenes, which, however fail to excite the viewer. Probably because the movie as a whole is trashy and the cast is awful. And we don’t mean Charlotte Lewis as Sarah in particular - she is a great kisser! It’s just the whole thing is so weak and underdeveloped that it ruins even the hottest moments. The vampire is not even given a name for Pete’s sake!
6 Angelina Jolie’s Girl-On-Girl Kiss In Gia (1998) Is Mind-Blowing - THUMBS UP
Some call Angelina Jolie “the greatest on-screen lesbian lover ever". How can we not agree when we watch her fully unleashing her talent of a seductress in the biographical drama Gia! It tells the story of model Gia Marie Garangi and her fall into addiction. When her lover, played by Elizabeth Mitchell, makes her choose between her and the drugs, Gia chooses drugs. Jolie has never been obscure about her adventurous sexual past and the fact that she’s also had female lovers. Long before Brad Pitt, Jolie was in a long-term relationship with actress Jenny Shimizu.
5 Leighton Meester & Danneel Ackles Kiss In A Club’s Bathroom In The Roommate (2011) - THUMBS DOWN
“Sorry to stare but you’re really beautiful!”
“So are you. You have great lips.”
The scene is set in a dim-lit bathroom in a club, the atmosphere is quite electric, and Meester’s character, Rebecca, needs some lip gloss (“cinnamon, caffeinated, because a girl never knows how long a night could be”). So what’s a girl to do but give both her lip gloss and her lips to this beautiful, enigmatic stranger? If you are accustomed to seeing Leighton Meester as the queen of the Upper East Side in Gossip Girl, then The Roommate will probably be an uneasy choice for a Friday night drama-slash-horror-slash-thriller. The only true asset of this movie is the kissing scene between Meester and Ackles. But instead of being erotic, it leaves a very insipid aftertaste. One gets the impression that the sequence was put there just to add some extra flavor to something that was born dead.
4 Gina Gershon's And Jennifer Tilly's Iconic Scene In Bound (1996) - THUMBS UP
The plot doesn’t exactly challenge the viewers’ intellectual capacity. Corky (Gina Gershon), a tough ex-con, and her lover Violet (Jennifer Tilly) hatch a scheme to steal some stashed mob money and blame it on Violet’s boyfriend Ceasar (Joe Pantoliano). The director is Lana Wachowski (as in the Wachowski Brothers!), and she definitely showed some genius flare by hiring the feminist writer Susie Bright as a consultant and choreographer of the girls’ sex scenes. The result is more than satisfactory and enjoyable. The unforgettable sequence when Violet first seduces Corky is truly remarkable. The scene is super sexy and genuine without being overdone or vulgar. You quickly forget Wachowski’s Neo and The Matrix when you see Gershon and Tilly in that passionate girl-to-girl scene.
3 A New Couple Shares An Educational Kiss In Higher Learning (1995) - THUMBS DOWN
OK, here is a fact: even with this half-erotic girl-on-girl kiss, this movie does nothing but advertise the banal slogan that different is cool. The movie follows the lives of three freshmen at a fictional university, and the main theme is one of racial tension. Of course, we are not here to discuss the black track star who struggles with academics, but the steamy topless makeout session between Kristen (played by Kristy Swanson) and strikingly beautiful Taryn (Jennifer Connelly). But somehow we cannot fully buy the intimacy that is going on between the two hotties. First of all, because it never becomes clear whether it really happened or it was just a fantasy of Kristen’s. Some would say, “Who cares?! They showed it, we watched it, so it’s pretty much real.” Well, we care!
2 Elizabeth Berkley & Gina Gershon In Showgirls (1995) Are The Ultimate Viewing Pleasure - THUMBS UP
The title of the movie is compelling enough for anybody who is into sexy girls. The attractive Nomi (Berkley) arrives in Las Vegas with the firm intention of making it as a dancer. She soon finds a dissatisfactory job as a stripper, but a happy ending inevitably follows. She catches the eye of a talent scout who hires her for a big revue at a casino. Eventually, Nomi gets her starring role. Cristal (Gershon) plays a hot, bisexual lady who also dances topless for a living. The two are rehearsing a dance number, and as things heat up, they go in for a kiss. “You see, darling, you ARE a whore, “ Cristal says, which makes Nomi run off. But only to come back at the end of the movie for another kiss with Cristal.
1 Blue Is Definitely NOT The “Warmest Color” - THUMBS DOWN
The French film Blue Is the Warmest Color (2013) was meant to be bold and impressive because of the straightforward depiction of the problems it addresses. Adèle (Adèle Exarchopoulos) is a high schooler, whose life changes drastically when she meets college student Emma (Lea Sevdoux). Emma’s hair is dyed blue, hence the title… in case you’ve wondered. The kissing and love-making scenes are extremely graphic, but hey, what else can we expect from a European movie! The camera tracks the actresses like a hungry hawk and never fails to capture their faces in obscene close-ups. We see their tears, teeth, and even snot streaming out of their noses. At moments it feels as if the camera seriously wants to invade their bodies. And yet, the chemistry between the two is somehow missing. It’s a shame, really, because Emma and Adèle are doing their best to embrace each other with total realism.
