ON MOVIES ~ Sex Sells...

Feature Presentation...

Molly looked around for a weekly meme about movies and did not have any luck. So therefore she decided to start her own! Andy will play along as well - hopefully you will too. Go to your blog and create your own post on the topic, linking back to us in your post, then come back and leave a link to your post here in our Comments section. If you don’t have a blog, just share your response in the Comments section.

This week's movie topic is all about Sex Scenes...

Sex sells. That's why you see it - on one level or another - everywhere. It can either be alluded to or explicit. In the world of movies, sometimes a sex scene is more effective if the actions are just implied. Other times, full on images of the process make the best impact. Tasteful or tactless, romantic or disturbing, scenes of a sexual nature always get a reaction. Here are some examples that caught our attention. Share on your blog movie scenes involving sex that raised your eyebrows or made you roll your eyes, linking back here at The Bumbles. And don't forget to visit your fellow participants!

  • Road House (1989) - Trashy Sex - it doesn't matter that Patrick Swayze is involved, the sex against a wall scene here is just tacky.
  • A History of Violence (2005) - Married Sex - sweet & sentimental bedroom play in one scene, raw and angry on the stairs in another - matches Viggo's character's story perfectly
  • Risky Business (1983) - Subway Sex -erotic, daring, and delightful - before Tom Cruise got wacky.
  • Team America: World Police (2004) - Funny Sex - South Park creator's raunchy puppets pushing the envelope.
  • The Accused (1988) - Criminal Sex - otherwise known as rape, disturbing and vitally important images from Jodi Foster teaching that victims never ask for it or deserve it.
  • Say Anything (1989) - Virgin Sex - awkward, romantic and loving example endearing Molly to John Cusack forever.

    "Do you like trains, Joel?" Yes, Risky Biz is a hot one. History of Violence is an interesting choice, too. I forgot about the sex scenes, but you're right, they do add depth to the story.

    Mine is up.

    I agree with Penny - Hubby watches this every time it's on and I can't stand it!--- except for that 3 second glimpse of Patrick Swayze's naked ass.

    Fatal Attraction wins for scene I can't stomach after hearing the participating actors interviewed. TMI!
