50 Sexiest Movie Moments

Black Swan (2010)

The Moment: Natalie Portman and Mila Kunis’ ballerinas get down for a little lesbian lip-locking. Or do they?

Adjust Your Collar When: Portman’s dancer has – we assume – her first ever orgasm.

Dr No (1962)

The Moment: Ursula Andress emerges from the ocean clutching a sea shell, setting a thousand hearts a-racing.

Adjust Your Collar When: “Are you looking for shells, too?” Andress asks. Bond’s suave reply? “No, I'm just looking.”

Mulholland Drive (2001)

The Moment: “You ever done this before?” Naomi Watts whispers, as she plays tonsil tennis with Laura Harring.

Adjust Your Collar When:
Watts starts, uh, cupping...

Y Tu Mama Tambien (2001)

The Moment: Gael García Bernal, Diego Luna and Maribel Verdu finally just get on with it and have a threesome at the climax of this saucy road movie.

Adjust Your Collar When:
Things go from the restaurant to the bedroom, where it gets very raunchy indeed.

The Notebook (2004)

The Moment: Noah (Ryan Gosling) and Allie (Rachel McAdams) find themselves caught in a downpour. How to make the most of it? Smooch for all you’re worth.

Adjust Your Collar When: The clothes start going a little see-through.

9 Weeks (1986)

The Moment: Hilariously pastiched in Hot Shots! , but still undeniably sexy as Mickey Rourke and Kim Basinger combine the two best things in the world – eating and sex – in a kitchen romp.

Adjust Your Collar When: The honey comes out…

Body Heat (1981)

The Moment: Ned Racine (William Hurt) breaks down a patio door to get to Matty Walker (Kathleen Turner).

Adjust Your Collar When: Matty starts painting “don’t… stop…”

Star Wars: Episode VI Return Of The Jedi (1983)

The Moment: Princess Leia pitches up in every sci-fi geek’s fantasy outfit – a super-revealing gold bikini that leaves pretty much nothing to the imagination.

Adjust Your Collar When: Leia’s on-screen. Sci-fi doesn’t get much sexier.

Bound (1996)

The Moment: “I have a tattoo. Would you like to see it?” rasps Violet (Jennifer Tilly) to ex-con Corky (Gina Gershon), before explaining the obvious - she’s trying to seduce her.

Adjust Your Collar When: “Here, touch it,” coaxes Tilly, taking Gershon’s hand presses it to her breast...

Dont Look Now (1973)

The Moment: Married couple John (Donald Sutherland) and Laura (Julie Christie) engage in one of cinema’s most famous throwdowns – and one of its most graphic.

Adjust Your Collar When: You remember this year’s reports that the sex scene wasn’t choreographed at all, but entirely real. Sutherland denies it, but you never know...
