Listen, there’s absolutely no shame in enjoying movie sex scenes. None. Whether you’re into the romance-in-the-rain vibes of Rachel McAdams and Ryan Gosling in The Notebook or something a little more domineering, like Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson‘s relationship in the 50 Shades of Grey trilogy, there’s a little something for everyone. Plus, you may find some films you missed out on the first time around, like Angelina Jolie’s early work in Gia or Rachel McAdams and Rachel Weisz in Disobedience.
Even better, most of these movies are about way more than their super-sexy moments, so there’s no reason to fast-forward to those scenes (not that there’s anything wrong with that). But you might just enjoy the plots too.
So without further ado, here they are: the best movie sex scenes of all time. And yes, we included steamy throwbacks like Basic Instinct, Body Heat, and Fatal Attraction.
