When I think of sex, especially when I'm doing it with someone for the first time, all that goes through my head is: awkward. Like, getting butt-ass naked in front of someone and letting your bare body touch their butt-ass naked self for the first time sounds...uncomfortable and frightening AF.
But, movies seem to make the deed look so much more easy and less nerve-wracking. If you're in search for a few pointers on how to make sex hot, steamy, and sweaty, we've gathered over 40 of some of the sexiest movie sex scenes for your viewing enjoyment and sex ed. Don't be afraid to take control, ladies!!!
1.The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo (2011)
Rooney Mara's character, Lisbeth Salander, hops right on top of Mikael Blomkvist (Daniel Craig) and it'll for sure get you feelin' some type of way. Make sure your boo is in close proximity because you'll be wanting to pounce on them after watching this steamy sex scene.
2. Call Me By Your Name (2017)
So we don't exactly get to see Elio and Oliver (the beautiful Timothee Chalamet and Armie Hammer) do the deed, but the intimate foreplay that we were blessed to witness was prob just as sexy. Tbh, idk if our hearts could've even handled or...deserved to see the perfection happen. Also, that peach scene!
3. The Lucky One (2012)
This love story just seems too good to be true, I mean, it is based on a Nicholas Sparks novel, so it's a total tear-jerker. But the sex scene in this film is...great. Zac Efron and Taylor Schilling get real hot and literally wet.
4. Cruel Intentions (1999)
IMO, this movie is a classic. Ryan Philippe, Reese Witherspoon, and Sarah Michelle Gellar star in it. What more do I need to say? And if you ever miss Ryan and Reese together as a real-life couple, watch their love scene in this movie. It'll bring back allllll the feels.
5. Pretty Woman (1990)
Uh, hi, can I get a guy to just plop me on a piano and show me how much he wants to love me?? The infamous Richard Gere and Julia Roberts play love interests in this must-watch-before-you-die rom-com. Might I add, this is one of multiple sensual lurve scenes in the film.
6. Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 2 (2012)
Pls soak in the nostalgia of Bella and Edward's love story that we all hold near and dear to our hearts. And enjoy every moment of this naked, passionate, and ~vampire-esque~ sex scene. (No furniture was harmed).
7. Blue Valentine (2010)
Although the film is about a couple whose relationship is hitting a downward spiral, Ryan Gosling and Michelle Williams make sure to make the sexy scenes they do have veryyy hot.
8. Black Swan (2010)
There's no denying the extreme steaminess of the unforgettable scene between Mila Kunis and Natalie Portman in Black Swan (2010). Both actresses are undeniably beautiful, and seeing them make out just does *things* for everyone and anyone watching.
9. Boogie Nights (1997)
It's already expected that a movie about porn's going to have a lot of sex, and Boogie Nights (1997) doesn't hold back. In one of the very first scenes, young Eddie Adams (Mark Wahlberg) gets to shoot an adult film with veteran porn star Amber Waves (Julian Moore), and things go from 0 to 100 real quick.
10. Wild Things (1998)
The seriously trashy movie ends with a threesome at a dingy motel room in Florida. What more could you ask for?
11. Mulholland Drive (2001)
This award-winning film received a lot of praise back when it first came out. And one of the scenes that probably lent to its ~artsy~ appeal was a tender love scene between its two female leads, Rita (Laura Harring) and Betty (Naomi Watts).
12. Jerry Maguire (1996)
Tom Cruise was at his peak dream boy state, and a young Reneé Zellwegger spotted him at the airport saying, "Man. Whoever snagged him must be some classy babe." Then the scene, of course, cuts to Cruise and Kelly Preston having rough sex, with Preston yelling, "Don't ever stop fucking me!" as her dog watches.
13. Risky Business (1983)
If the taboo of public sex is what gets your motor running, then this scene from Risky Business (1983) should do the trick. It starts out with Joel (Tom Cruise) feeling his way up Lana's (Rebecca De Mornay) skirt aboard a bus. And for whatever reason, the driver doesn't notice, so they end up going all the way.
14. Cabin Fever (2002)
Cabin Fever (2002) is a horror movie about a flesh-eating disease that kills a group of college students vacationing in the mountains. And because Marcy (Cerina Vincent) abandons all hope, she resorts to YOLO and decides to have one last ride with Paul (Rider Strong).
15. The Notebook (2004)
This scene from The Notebook was the culmination of all Allie (Rachel McAdams) and Noah's (Ryan Gosling) frustrations with each other, and all the tension that's been building up over the years. So, naturally, this resulted in a really wet (well, because of the rain), really intense, and really hot sex scene.
16. Total Recall (1990)
People mostly remember Total Recall (1990) for the three-boobed woman, but the thriller's sexiest scene happens early on in the movie, when Douglas Quaid (Arnold Schwarzenegger) and his wife Lori (Sharon Stone) get really intimate.
17. Munich (2005)
This short, but super hot and sweaty scene between Avner (Eric Bana) and his pregnant wife Daphna (Ayelet Zurer) is so raw and real.
18. Gone Girl (2014)

19. The Rocky Horror Picture Show (1975)
The Rocky Horror Picture Show (1975) is one of the oddest classic cult films there is. And while their sex scenes aren't graphic at all, no one can deny the irresistible, raw sexual energy Rocky (Peter Hinwood) exudes.
20. The Shape of Water (2017)
You wouldn't expect to get turned on by an ancient fish man alien creature—but, hey, a number of people do. This scene led to so many fish man penis jokes, which ultimately led to the creation of a fish man dildo.
21. Road House (1989)
Two words: PATRICK. SWAYZE. You'd get pregnant just staring into those eyes, hearing him breathe, and watching those lips quiver. And while simulated sex up against a brick wall must've been painful, again: PATRICK SWAYZE. That is all.
22. Ghost (1990)
...Aaaaaaand more Patrick Swayze! This scene from Ghost (1990) is seriously sensual, starting off with a lot of handsy, dirty pottery work.
23. Basic Instinct 2
This clip takes car sex to a whole other level. Catherine (Sharon Stone) is speeding down the streets in her sports car while giving Kyle (Stan Collymore) a hand job. Of course, she couldn't let him have all the fun, so after he was done, she makes sure she gets hers.
24. Watchmen (2009)
This scene definitely solidifies a spot for Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah" on your sexy time playlist. Superheroes Night Owl II (Patrick Wilson) and Silk Spectre (Malin Åkerman) get it on in their spaceship after a hard day's work of saving the world.
25. The Paperboy (2012)
The Paperboy (2012) is full of steamy scenes—including one between Nicole Kidman and Zac Efron's characters. But the hottest by far is when Charlotte Bless (Nicole Kidman) and the love of her life, convict Hillary Van Wetter (John Cusak), have really rough sex in a laundry room.
26. The Cabin in the Woods (2012)
In this scene, college kid Curt Vaughan (Chris Hemsworth) is hard-pressed on having sex with his girlfriend Jules Louden (Anna Hutchison) in the woods.

27. Atonement (2007)

28. Swimfan (2002)
Swimfan (2002) features a good old fashioned pool sex scene. And while Madison Bell (Erika Christensen) is kinda crazy—like, literally deranged—that doesn't make this scene any less...well, wet.
29. Wet Hot American Summer (2001)
The title of this movie says it all. And the hottest scene for this summer fling flick happens in an old tool shed, between Ben ( a v young Bradley Cooper) and McKinley (Michael Ian Black). Ah! Young love.
30. Unfaithful (2002)

31. Monster's Ball (2001)
This scene is all about Leticia Musgrove's (Halle Berry) pleasure, as Hank Grotowski (Billy Bob Thornton) goes down on her. And the sexiest part? He asks, "Can I touch you?" Nothing is sexier than consent, people!

You've probably seen this iconic love scene. If not—have you been hiding under a rock all these years?! In this unforgettable Ang Lee film, ranch hand Ennis Del Mar (Heath Ledger) and cowboy Jack Twist (Jake Gyllenhaal) meet and fall in love, and have a tumultuous forbidden love affair.

34. No Strings Attached (2011)
Adam (Ashton Kutcher) cuts straight to the chase. He and Emma (Natalie Portman) try to have sex as quietly as they can so her roommates don't hear them. Emma, being the sensible person that she is, doesn't forget the condom.

One of the hottest scenes in all of the Fifty Shades trilogy is this elevator scene where Christian Grey (Jamie Dornan) couldn't wait to see Anastasia Steele (Dakota Johnson) squirm as he put his hand up her skirt.
36. American Pie (1999)
It's no secret that love-making gets a lot hotter when the guy learns how to really go down on you. In this scene Kevin Kevin (Thomas Ian Nicholas) uses a cheat sheet as a guide when going down on his girlfriend, Victoria (Tara Reid). The technique, of course, is called the "tongue tornado."
37. Love & Other Drugs (2010)

The beautiful Brooke Shields was only 14 years old when she shot this controversial movie. It's about two Victorian era teenagers who get stranded on an island with no one else ton turn to and nowhere else to run to. They only have each other. So, naturally, they get curious.
41. 300: Rise of an Empire (2014)
No, this is not the Gerard Butler 300 (2006) movie. This sequel is a continuation of the epic saga. And in this rough sex scene between Artemisia (Eva Green) and Themistocles (Sullivan Stapleton), it's obvious where this soldier wants to plant his sword. (Sorry, not sorry!)
42. Fear (1996)
This has got to be the most thrilling part of this suspense-thriller. Nicole (Reese Witherspoon) gets her first sexual experience on an effing ROLLERCOASTER!
