View Full Version : Most realistic sex scene in a movie (not favorite sex scene)

This is not about your favorite "sex" movie as another thread has that topic. This is about the movie that most realistically portrays the actual act. (No pornos, please)
I think that Cold Mountain is probably the most accurate in terms of conveying the raw emotion when two people share a moment so to say. While the circumtstances are rather awkward, the one in Enemy at the Gates was rather true as well. Interesting that they both involve Jude Law. ;)

Man, I sure wish the site founder would create some sort of mature section to the forum, but I'm sure there isn't that much interest for one.. ;)

Jack, while I'm sure that some people might feel like they want to abuse the nature of the topic, I don't mind the thread as is. There's no pictures and there's no discussion of the scenes' content - just the fact they are.

I'll add one. Halle and Billy in Monster's Ball

D1, Mature Forum isn't about abuse of topics, it's about adult topics, which this really is. -ohbfrank-

This very well could have been discussed there and would probably get better discussion. I'm curious as to the point of the realistic, but not real sex question.

Basic Instinct

Mickey Rourke and Carrie Otis in Wild Orchid. It might have looked realistic b/c rumor was they were actually doing it. Either way it's hot. The movie pretty much sucked though. Nice Brazilian scenery but the plot is lame.

Basic Instinct, Fatal Attraction, Unfaithful, and Angel Heart also had some pretty realistic sex scenes. They worked for me :thumbsup: :D

It's just that as the thread is, people could start posting pictures and talking about the scenes in greater detail, or worse, including scenes which are just exploitative or silly. Such actions will cause this thread to unduly get moved to Adult Talk.

The scene with Donald Sutherland and Julie Christie in Don't Look Now really looked like a normal couple making love rather than going through a choreography for the camera's benefit.

Deniro and Bridgett Fonda in Jackie Brown has to be the most realistic "quickie" in film history....and it's oddly hot too....

Monster's Ball is at the top of the "raw emotion" sex scene.

And who can forget JJ Leigh and Dimone in Fast Times at Ridgemont High?

Absolutely. This, IMO, is the most realistic one mentioned thus far (that I have seen).

Because my memory sucks, I'll second the Halle/Billy scene in Monster's Ball, since thats the last one I can remember off the top of my head.

Didnt the movie with James Spader and Susan Sarrandon (sp?) awhile back make alot of noise cause of their sex scenes? I cant think of the movie right now. White something maybe...

I agree with "The Cooler." William H Macy realistically depicts a guy who hasn't ...er done it in a while. ;-)

I also thought the lesbian scene in the movie "Bound." was pretty realistic. It worked for me ;-) Jennifer Tilly and Gena Gershon looked like they really had chemistry.

Maud Adams and Bruce Dern in Tattoo

Both films' scenes are rumoured to be unsimulated.

the scene in ' ma soeur!'(Fat Girl) - the large erect male member and the explicit near penetration shot... :jawdrop:

the BJ scene in Marco Bellocchio's "Il Diavolo in corpo" (The Devil in the Flesh), like 'Intimacy', left nothing to the imagination

the group sex scenes in 'Baise Moi' and 'Scandal' featured explicit non-simulated sex.

Sex & Lucia

Giles

while I liked Sex and Lucia, the only shocking part of the film I remember was the mud encased erect penis shot.

angryyoungman
07-08-04, 10:18 AM
I would also say Sex & Lucia. I may be oversimplifying, but the movie is pretty much a series of sex scenes.

Let me also add--and I may catch some flack for this--Y Tu Mama Tambien.

This is the first one I thought of as well. I also think the Banderas/Jolie scene in Original Sin was pretty realistic.

Giles
07-08-04, 10:39 AM
well even the Mickey Rourke/Lisa Bonet scene from 'Angel Heart' was pretty graphic, a lot of thrusting.

from Nicholas Roeg's Bad Timing Art Garfunkle's rape of the near dead Theresa Russell is exceedingly graphic and one wonders how this scene ever got an R-rating from the MPAA

well ya know it's kind of difficult to not simulate this kind of sex onscreen: Intimacy, The Devil in the Flesh, and Brown Bunny all featured hardcore blow jobs scenes.

07-08-04, 12:05 PM
even the unrated version of 1994 remake of 'The Getaway' featured an explicit sex scene between then husband/wife Alec Baldwin and Kim Basinger

interestingly, since there was so much full frontal nudity of Jane March, the unrated version features the only male frontal nudity of Tony Leung with a quick shot that borders on a simulated hardcore penetration shot.

In Pasolini's films: Cantebury Tales and Arabian Nights the film's multiple sex scenes seemed so natural and voyueristic it added a stark realistic quality to the films.

Giles
07-08-04, 12:19 PM
I am surprised no one has mentioned the chicken copulation scene from Pink Flamingos - it's gritty, unsettling and explicit, hence it's NC-17 rating.

baracine
07-08-04, 12:27 PM
The very animalistic, unromantic, utilitarian coupling in Ingmar Berman's The Silence. But, at least, it's not a rape...

If you want realistic rape, try Two Women (Vittorio De Sica's La Ciociara, 1960, Oscar winner for Sophia Loren).

sundog
07-08-04, 01:41 PM
I wasn't even thinking of the fellatio when I posted Intimacy (which is, as stated, explicit), but more of the way the "penetration" scenes were filmed: less explicit, gritty and almost tactile.

There was a love scene and a sex scene in that movie. The latter made the list in a "Hottest-sex-scenes" compilation in a recent issue of King Magazine.

It's ironic that this thread got posted today. I watched Don't Look Now for the first time today and I'd have to go with the sex scene in that movie.
It's not really erotic and in my opinion, it lasts way too long, but it's deinfitely realistic, and I guess the rumor is that it's so realistic because it WAS real.

Yes, I am familiar with the shot in question. ;)


the scene in ' ma soeur!'(Fat Girl) - the large erect male member and the explicit near penetration shot...

Speaking of this film, do you happen to know what would be the best DVD version to get? (the film was actually banned here in Ontario. Thank god that our censorious film board is soon to be eliminated).

I have heard that the buttf***ing scene with Rose McGowan and Marilyn Manson in Jawbreaker is the real deal.

I would add the scene between Tobey Maguire and Charlize Theron in Cider House Rules. Interesting that the movie got a PG-13 IMO. It's a good representation of instinct taking over and the two participants not really understanding what happened afterwards.

In regards to 'Fat Girl' I haven't heard of any 'complete' DVD version of the film. There has been a long time rumour that Criterion is trying to acquire the US DVD/video rights to this. For such a controversal and explicit film, the non-release of this film onto domestic home video has successfully and sadly buried this film into near obscurity.

You said it Hendrick - unfortunately, according to the website Giles posted above, the UK version is cut.

Measks this important question... is there (or do you know of any plans for) an uncut OAR release of this film with English subtitles?? It seems logical enough that there should be one somewhere, after all it played briefly in theaters in the US and Canada this way.

To the best of my knowledge, here's the situation so far:

1) French R2 DVD - uncut, but no English subs
2) UK R2 DVD - CUT, with English subs
3) Hong Kong DVD - uncut, with English subs, but not OAR (or perhaps it's cut too, I don't know - I just refuse to get it b/c it's not OAR and it's probably poor quality to boot (pun intended))

I've been waiting for this title to appear correctly for a long, long time - any hope at all??
word is that the R4 Australian DVD edition (with the alternate title: For My Sister) is also the uncensored print of the film.

Yeah, based on the subject matter, a US DVD release could be problematic. I was hoping that maybe there is a nice European DVD release (with English subs of course)
