So far, it’s been a summer full of some very steamy moments.
WM Summer of Sin is continuing until Sunday 18 January, heating up your living rooms every night at 9.30pm. With Australian television premieres, fanatical indie favourites and classic adult titles, we dare you to watch some of the most scandalous and sexy films from across the globe.
To get you in the mood for some truly tantalizing cinema, we’re taking a look at some iconic sexy movie moments we love to pause and re-watch.
The leg cross – Basic Instinct (USA, 1992)
No scene in Hollywood history had boys wearing out their remote batteries quite like this one. Sharon Stone ruled the 90s with her carefree attitude and killer figure. Even with her two full frontal sex scenes in Basic Instinct, Catherine Tramell (Stone) uncrossing and crossing her legs became the film’s most memorable scene.
Sexual awakening – Mal√®na (Italy, 2000)
Giuseppe Tornatore’s Mal√®na follows a seductive woman who provokes sexual awakenings in a group of adolescent boys. The most sizzling scene sees ‚ÄòItaly’s luckiest teenager’ remove Mal√®na’s (Monica Bellucci) bra to enjoy a face full of her bosom. Let’s watch that again…
Fantasy scene – Belle de Jour (France, 1967)
Belle de Jour is a film that not only deals with sexual repression, class issues and prostitution but also features Catherine Deneuve in her prime. A particularly provocative scene depicts her character Séverine’s fantasy of being bound and lashed as her husband watches. The result is rather steamy.
The pool kiss – Wild Things (USA, 1998)
The erotic thriller Wild Things‘ pool kissing scene between Suzie (Neve Campbell) and Kelly (Denise Richards) was many teenage boys first glimpse of an on-screen romance between two women. The dangerously sexy, aggressive yet tender kissing made this scene vastly popular.
Bathtub scene – Room in Rome (Spain, 2010)
The action in Room in Rome takes place in a hotel room across one night, where an intoxicating sexual relationship between two women unfolds into a complex and intimate baring of the soul. The scene where the two beauties rumble and tumble in the bath tub is certainly one to watch more than once.
The first time – Blue Is the Warmest Colour (France, 2013)
The emotionally absorbing drama Blue Is the Warmest Colour centres on Adele, a 15-year-old girl climbing to adulthood who dreams of experiencing her first love. The intense scene in which Adele and the older art student Emma sleep together for the first time is an epic six minutes long and jaw-droppingly graphic.
Phoebe Cates’ swimsuit – Fast Times at Ridgemont High (USA, 1982)
Few scenes resonate after so many years in the way that Phoebe Cates’s pool scene has. In Fast Times at Ridgemont High Cates plays Linda Barrett, one of the most iconic bad girls in film. The image of her seductively unbuttoning the front of her swimsuit and pulling it open has been imprinted on many then-teenagers’ minds for decades.
