9 Non-Porn Movies Featuring Real Sex

By  | 

Oh, Hollywood gossip; you are so very entertaining. And this is why we love books about you so very much.

Case in point: Infamous Players: A Tale of Movies, the Mob, (and Sex) by former Paramount executive and Variety editor Peter Bart. Due out on May 3, Bart's behind-the-scenes book posits that the sex scene between actors Donald Sutherland and Julie Christie in the 1973 film Don't Look Now was, in fact, utterly unsimulated. Sutherland denies the claim, but it's a fascinating possibility nonetheless. It might surprise you, however, how many mainstream films there are out there that feature actual sex; here, we've assembled for your consideration nine of the best:

1) Don't Look Now (1973)
The current case in question. Don't Look Now focuses on the Baxters, a married couple played by Donald Sutherland and Julie Christie who have just lost their daughter to drowning. When a pair of elderly sisters claim that they are psychically in contact with the drowned daughter, the Baxters find their lives thrown into chaos. The wife, Laura, naturally faints at the news and is summarily taken to the hospital; however, upon her release, she and her husband, John, have a night of wild, passionate sex. And this, my friends, is the current hot piece of news: Rumor now has it that that night of wild, passionate sex happened for real.
