The Steamiest Movie Moments Share. The hottest, sexiest, R-rated-est scenes ever. Cue a Smiths song. But as a way to compensate for this, in years past we've put together a collection of our favorite sexy-time scenes from the movies… complete with screen-caps, mind you, complete with screen-caps! Our team of lovelorn editors has scoured the annals of cinematic history for the hottest, sexiest, most lustful movie scenes ever -- it's the Steamiest Movie Moments, and it's a scorcher.
We've got 10 scenes listed per page, but feel free to click on the lovely graphic below if you'd like to jump ahead or back in the list. Because, after all, who needs a valentine when you've got IGN? At least, that's the approach that Uther Pendragon takes in John Boorman's classic sword and sorcery epic Excalibur. He's got it bad for Igrayne, the hot young bride of his adversary-turned-supporter, the Duke of Cornwall, so he commands the magician Merlin to transform him into a semblance of the Duke.
Uther, played by a young, grunting Gabriel Byrne , then rides into the Duke's castle and marches straight into Igrayne's bed where he can't even be bothered to take off his armor before mounting her. Meanwhile, the panting, moaning scene cross-cuts with the real Duke battling Uther's men, culminating in Cornwall's expiration and Uther's, uh, exclamation. And from this union is conceived Arthur, future king of England.
The scene just narrowly beats out several other memorably steamy moments from the film, including a couple featuring Helen Mirren as the wicked brother-loving Morgana.
Assume the Position Participants: This thriller, which marked Pacino's return to film after a long absence, was essentially Basic Instinct before there was a Basic Instinct. In it, he plays Frank Keller, an alcoholic NYPD detective still bitter over his divorce who must investigate a series of grisly murders related to singles ads.
Frank and his partner Sherman John Goodman deduce that their suspect is female so they concoct a plan to capture her by inviting a number of women out on dates via a singles ad with the hopes of getting their prints off of wine glasses. One would-be dinner date isn't taking the bait, though: Barkin was no stranger to sex scenes, having previously steamed up the screen in 's The Big Easy. When Frank and Helen end up in the bedroom, aggression and animal instincts take precedence over romance in a scene that successfully blends arousal with terror.
As Helen slips away to take a bathroom break, Frank spots the handle of a pistol poking out from her purse. Freaking out that she's his killer and that he might be her next victim, a rattled Frank attacks her when she exits the bathroom -- and is mortified when it turns out that he was mistaken. But then Helen turns the tables on him, pushing him against the bedroom wall, frisking him as she demands to know what he was looking for. These two take makeup sex to a whole new level.
Interlude with The Girl Movie: The Name of the Rose Participants: This odd mystery stars Sean Connery as a detective monk, with a young Christian Slater playing his apprentice. Set during the Inquisition, the film follows the two as they're called to investigate a series of murders at a monastery. At one point in the film, while his boss is doing some heavy detective work, Slater's shiny-headed monk takes a break from all that murder business when he stumbles upon a wild country girl who lives off the scraps of the abbey.
Played by the Chilean-born, French-raised Valentina Vargas, this nameless girl may be feral but she's also a foreign beauty. In a wordless scene set to medieval candlelight, The Girl as she's called in the credits seduces the virginal monk boy, tearing at his robes and her own, mounting him, and basically showing him the light.
Who needs God after that, one must wonder? Heather Graham Salad Toss Movie: Two Girls and a Guy Participants: If you're going to get yourself involved in salad tossing of any kind, make certain that it involves Heather Graham. It seems like it's going to be a pretty bad day for Blake Downey Jr. And while he is forced to face the drama when both girls confront him in his loft, things begin to improve for Blake when Graham's character leads him upstairs for a full-on trouncing.
Things take a turn for the unorthodox when Blake pins Graham's character against a door and proceeds to pleasure her in unspeakable ways. They don't call him Iron Man for nothing. Dude, Your Sister Is Hot! While his wife Theron is falling apart and having a nervous breakdown, Keanu can't get his mind off his hot coworker Nielsen , so much so that during a bit of lovemaking with his troubled better-half, the once and future Neo starts seeing Nielsen in her place.
This sort of troubling yet great scene becomes mainly just troubling when we later learn that Nielsen is actually Keanu's demonic sister.
