Spring is slowly approaching, which makes this the perfect time for optimistic reflection. Where did I go wrong? Where did I go right? Where will I go on my summer holiday? These are all pertinent questions, of course, but there's one thing we really want to reflect on: The best movie sex scenes, you dirty perverts.
There has been a lot of flesh on show on the big screen over recent times. Sex sells, sex movies sell, and producers know this, but it's not as easy as just going through the motions.
Below are some of the most riveting, thought provoking and well shot celebrity sex scenes in movies over the past year or so, kept as up to date as possible with the latest and greatest. It may be pervy, but at least it's classy.
13. 'Personal Shopper' - Kristen Stewart and... Kristen Stewart
The scene: Kristen Stewart teams up with French director Olivier Assayas in this film about a personal shopper (surprise!) who works for a celebrity, while also communicating with mysterious spirits. The film is notable, though, for a scene in which Kristen Stewart's character masturbates in another woman's underwear while texting a mysterious sexter. Kinky.
12. 'The Handmaiden' - Kim Min-hee and Kim Tae-ri
The scene: In one of the most affecting sex scenes in recent years, Sook-Hee (Kim Tae-ri) makes passionate love to Lady Izumi Hideko (Kim Min-hee), promising her the same intense levels of sensual euphoria with her future husband, Count Fujiwara (Ha Jung-woo).
11. 'Bad Moms' - Mila Kunis and Jay Hernandez
The scene: Amy's (Mila Kunis) friend Carla decides to send a "disturbing" prank text to Jessie (Jay Hernadez), inviting him over to Amy's house. The prank works out exceedingly well; Jessie arrives and the pair gloss over any awkwardness before deciding to act out the "disturbing" suggestions in a steamy sex scene.
10. 'Deadpool' - Ryan Reynolds and Morena Baccarin
The scene: After meeting by chance, a time-lapse of Wade Wilson and Vanessa's relationship is depicted by their holiday themed sexual shenanigans. Naughty Deadpool.
9. 'Dirty Grandpa' - Robert De Niro and Aubrey Plaza
The scene: On the list of De Niro's finest performances, let's just say this sex scene doesn't quite get an entry. Regardless, in the hilarity stakes, this ranks quite high, with Aubrey Plaza playing a woman who has a "fondness" for older men.
8. 'Knock Knock' - Keanu Reeves, Lorenza Izzo and Ana de Armas
The scene: When staying at home while his family goes away, a devoted father is visited by two girls who are 'stranded.' Then, as you do, they end up having a threesome.
7. 'Love' - Karl Glusma, Aomi Muyock
The scene: It would be a disservice to Gaspar Noé's latest controversial incarnation to limit the sex to one scene. The entire movie centers around the relationship between Murphy (Glusma) and Electra (Muyock), and features a host of unsimulated sex.
Oh, and it was also released in 3D.
6. 'Crimson Peak' - Tom Hiddleston and Mia Wasikowska
The scene: Spending the night together in a hotel, the newly married couple consummate their marriage. The scene is positive in the sense it portrays events with Edith in control, in contrast to many typical Hollywood best sex scenes which are soley filmed through the 'male gaze.'
5. 'Spectre' - Daniel Craig and Monica Bellucci
The scene: This is Bond we're talking about, after all, so naturally there will always be sex. However, the scene with Bond and Lucia is one of the most magnetic in recent years. Much was made of Bellucci's age prior to the movie, which is laughable; Craig is older than her in real life.
4. 'Carol' - Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara
The scene: There are rumors of Oscar nominations for Blanchett and Mara for their romantic portrayal of lesbian love. The sex scenes in particular are sensual, non-titillating and integral to the story.
3. 'The Boy Next Door' - Jennifer Lopez and Ryan Guzman
The scene: Jennifer Lopez features in this raunchy film about a young man's attempt to seduce his next door neighbor. It's fair to say, cinematically, it's not the best, but J-Lo fans will be satisfied.
2. 'Fifty Shades of Grey' - Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan
The scene: In any "best of" list involving sex, it would be unfair to leave out the movie adaption of E.L. James's novel, regardless of your opinion.
1. 'Focus' - Margot Robbie and Will Smith
The scene: Some people deem this movie another Will Smith flop, but judging from some of his passionate scenes with Margot Robbie, I'd disagree
See what I did there?
By the way: All scenes shown here are staged. But we also compiled this interesting list of movies in which actors has real sex - and you missed it.
