36 Steamy Movie Scenes Where Celebs Really Did It

Entertainment | By  | 

Actors getting it on in big mainstream movies can sometimes feel a little too choreographed and scripted.  A handful of directors decided they didn’t want that type of forced choreography so they asked their talent to do something almost unthinkable in mainstream filmmaking: to really do it on camera.  That’s right folks, our list of 21 steamy movies contain scenes where celebs actually got down and dirty. Our list starts with some oldies–but ends with recent films and big A-List celebs (some which will come as a surprise)!

In the Realm of the Senses (1976)

Entertainment One Films

Directed by: Nagisa Oshima

This steamy thriller will give you chills. The movie is based on the real-life tormented tale of Sada Abe, a Japanese woman who erotically asphyxiated her lover then cut off his penis before traveling around with it in her handbag. There is some good news — while the sex is real; the murder and genital removal is nothing but an illusion. While the subject matter won’t sit well with many viewers, it’s a beautifully filmed movie that is worth cringing through at least once in your lifetime.  

Caligula (1979)

Image Entertainment

Directed by: Tinto Brass

While the first two films on our list were both well-received for their artsy storytelling and their ability to tackle very tough subject matters — Caligula was not. This NSFW movie is by far one of the worst pieces of cinematic trash you will ever see. The movie was financed by Penthouse founder Bob Guccione, which probably tells you everything you need to know. The movie was supposed to be an arthouse flick based on some level of historical accuracy. As filming continued, Guccione added in orgies, weird sexual conquests and many other additions that simply destroyed any semblance of a plot. The movie is horribly directed and devolves quickly into exactly what you would expect Penthouse to push out to viewers.
