Here they are: the five weirdest sex scenes in movies.
at hello” and “Show me the money,” but the other memorable line of this
film is “Oh, oh, never stop ****ing me!” screamed by Kelly Preston
playing Tom Cruise’s scarily ambitious girlfriend in the opening scene
of Jerry Maguire.
Her orgasm is 100 times the intensity of a normal person’s, even in
porn. Of course, it’s intended to be over the top, but along with Meg
Ryan in When Harry Met Sally…
(not to mention those Herbal Essence shampoo commercials), the scene is
definitive of 1990s depiction of female sexuality, as if the female
orgasm had suddenly been invented.

with a character that was already way over the top? Kim Cattrall’s
Samantha had always been a caricature, but her final scene in Sex and the City 2
has her doing it on top of a truck, in the middle of a desert
landscape, howling operatically in orgasm. The entire movie is a parody

can’t touch you, Susan. I can’t touch you as a man could touch you. But I
can show you things that human eyes have never seen.” Try that line in

is: Don’t have sex with your experiment. In this “scientists go beyond
the laws of nature and create a monster” scifi flick from 2009,
scientists Elsa and Clive (Sarah Polley and Adrien Brody) splice
together DNA from different animals to create a new hybrid, ostensibly
for medical research. They produce Dren, who looks like Sinéad O’Connor
if you were to see her in a fun house mirror. Before spontaneously
changing sex, growing a penis and raping Sarah Polley, Dren has sex with
Adrien Brody, who suddenly gets all turned on by her bald head and
wide-apart eyes. They do it in a barn.
