Colin Posted April 23, 2010 Share Posted April 23, 2010 Combined with wonderful music reproduction and big screenTVs, home theaters systems provide some truly awesome entertainment. I startedthreads about war and football movies. Those are irrelevant compared to what reallyexcites, moves and makes most men feel alive – sex! Without simply pandering toour prurient interests with mere nudity and explicit sex, the medium has thepower to tap our emotional core with beautiful women, erotic settings and potentdialogue and plots. So guys, let’s see how far we can take this thread beforeour mommy moderator shuts us down. 1. What gentlemen are the most sensuous, erotic,beautifully crafted movies you have ever seen? 2. What are the sexy movies you would share with alover? 3. What movies are so good that the two of youcould watch again and again? Recommendations must meet all three criteria above. Pleasenote what makes them so special (certainly if it has a good soundtrack). I’ll start… 1. Carl Zhang’s Lovers(2008) is a touching, erotic taleof a young French girl taking on a rich Asian man as a lover. Set against thebeautiful, glowing backdrop of modern Shanghai, 'Lovers' explores the subjectsof love lost and found, regret, and the fragility of second chances. The cameranever looks away from their passionate explorations.2. The amazing UnbearableLightness of Being shows the handsome Daniel Day Lewis (Last of the Mohicans, There will be Blood)as a woman chasing doctor with two loves. One is the beguiling Juliette Binoche(the endearing Chocolat, with Johnny Depp),the other is the sexy, artistic free spirit Lena Olin (also Chocolat). Their love making is touchingand sexy. The situation is brashly adult and realistic. 3. Definitely Maggie Gyllenhaal bending over thedesk to receive spankings from uptight lawyer James Spader in the shocking Secretary (2002). So hot.4. Of course, Chocolat.Not simply because it has Johnny Depp, Juliette Binoche and Lena Olin, all thatis certainly reason enough, but because without a lot of nudity or sex, as inthe two above, Chocolat weaves a charmingtale of magical love certain to move and inspire the fairer sex, and perhaps afew skeptical tweaking audiophiles as well. 5. Yes, Liv Tyler’s topless nudity in Stealing Beauty (1996) is an attentiongrabbing scene that is the hallmark of this sensuous film. But its tale of ayoung girl exploring the meaning of love and relationships, with yet anotherpowerful performance from Jeremy Irons (Lolita,Merchant of Venice), is what puts this move over the top. 6. It is absolutely Liv Tyler’s brash seductress (threemen over the legal limit) in One Night atMcCool’s that makes the movie so sexy. Anybody watching this would run awaywith her. 7. The soft porn classic Emmanuelle (1974) withSylvia Kristel may seem tired now, but the steamy Asian setting makes this anerotic temptation.8. Kevin Spacey’s American Beauty because of the wonderful contrasts between hismiddle age male attraction to a teenage girl (the sexy Mena Suvari), Annette Benning’ssexual obsession with a successful salesman, and the tender explorations oftheir teenage daughter (Thora Birch) make one want to enjoy the precious fewseconds we have in this life. 9. Beowolf(2007) because all though she is nothing but animated, god-like monster, theexplicit nudity of Angelina Jolie’s character provides the fundamental drivingforce behind this ancient plot: mere mortals are continually tempted by her overtsexuality.10. Guys, I am going to go out on a limb here andadd Ang Lee’s triple Oscar winner, BrokebackMountain, because if you can get past the two guys kissing, Annie Proulx’sshort story about a forbidden and secretive relationship between two cowboys isone of the best love stories ever told! The movie proves that love is indeed a powerfulforce of nature. You might not cry watching this move, but your woman will andyou will be a better man for watching it with her.11. The compelling sexual attraction between NastassjaKinski and Malcolm McDowell in the 1982’s CatPeople will have you giving in to your animal desires. I wanted to add Jack Nicholson andJessica Lange in the 1980 remake of ThePostman Always Rings Twice because their flour covered lovemaking on thekitchen table is so hot (not explicit, but he touches her down there)! Then Iconsidered the sexual undertones replete in her King Kong, but that movie doesn’t fit the three criteria above. I can’t add Lolita, The Ice Storm or BodyHeat because all though those movies are sexy, they simply use sex as aplot device (mmm, so does Beowolf), notas a sensual element of the story. Theend result is that you don’t feel sexy or adventurous after watching it (notlike Secretary)! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
