"Mainstream" Films that feature "Hardcore" Sex

I might be in the wrong forum with this, but I was just wondering how many Studios have released films with Hardcore Sex in them. These are the ones I know of. R1 only of course.

Romance (Lions Gate)
Baise Moi (Remstar)
Caligula (Image)
Emmanuelle In America (Blue Underground)

I don't think any of those have actual sex.

In the Realm of the Senses does: http://us.imdb.com/title/tt0074102/

Baise Moi does have hardcore sex in it.

Caligula (Unrated) also has hardcore sex but I'm not sure if they released it in the theaters unrated.

Does Irreversible have it?

I saw that at Blockbuster for sale used. Was it released as R-Rated in the theaters?

are you kidding, yes it was. Theatrically, The film carried a self imposed X-rating for years, it was only after it was doing great box office numbers that Penthouse submitted the film to the MPAA to secure an R-rating and release it to more theatres that wouldn't have originally shown an X-rated film. Theatrically (and the laserdisc/unrated VHS versions) had a running time of 148minutes, the current unrated DVD is 156 minutes (an even longer Canne's Film Festival cut supposedly shown at a running time of 210 minutes).

~

- Lars Von Trier's - The Idiots
- "The Devil and the Flesh" has a BJ scene
- "The Piano Teacher" - features some hardcore sex scene from a sequence with a film within a film scene
- Paul Verhoeven's "Spetters" has the legendary penis measuring sequence. The film also contains both graphic (but not hardcore) sex and a violent gay rape sequence.
- "The Lover" borders very close to hardcore, the unrated version is a frame or two shy of simulated penetration.

The theatrical run of Sex and Lucia here in DC, didn't have a MPAA rating. I remember the one-sheet stating 'no one under 18 admitted'

this type of controversy was even suggested in Nicolas Roeg's Don't Look Now'- rumour had it that outtakes from the love making scene between Donald Sutherland and Julie Christie were ultra-explicit.

I haven't seen it, but doesn't Roeg's Bad Timing: A Sensual Obsession contain graphic sex scenes.

Are you sure? From Ebert's review, all I got was that it has a ton of nudity. Also in the review's credits, it says it's rated-R. If there was hardcore sex in it, surely it would be X or un-rated.

I know for sure the ones I listed have XXX action in them, I've watched them 5 times to be sure

also Ken Park has some in the very end.

I was mainly curious about some of the Foreign films Blue Underground & Media Blasters have released with "Contains Graphic Scenes Of A Sexual Nature" or something to that affect. I remember Patrick Still Lives had some kinda warning label like that

...erm... the general concensus (sp?) seems to be that during the (in)famous opening sequence Dalle and Anglade were most definitely 'getting it on'... in his commentary (on the DVD of the three-hour version of the movie - which Ebert did not see!) the director is rather coy about whether they did or did not...

"happy little warm slug..."
