Many of the ten best Hollywood movie sex scenes occur in otherwise dull films, making you wonder if the director decided to throw in some rampant sex just to boost ticket sales. If they used sex to sell the films it worked, because people love to watch Hollywood movies featuring scantily clad women. There are lots of movies with sex scenes but the best Hollywood movie, love making scenes feature excessive breast shots and focus on the woman.

  1. "Unfaithful." This is the kind of movie that drives rational husbands to paranoia. Diane Lane, who seems to get hotter with age, plays a sex starved housewife who decides to start banging a book reading fanatic. The guy is not worth a mention, but the site of nude Diane Lane makes the sex scenes in this movie rank among the best in Hollywood history. 

  2. "Basic Instinct." Sharon Stone has her critics, but none of them have ever criticized her ability to look sultry in Hollywood sex scenes. Right from the outset, Stone bares her wares and lucky old Michael Douglas gets an eyeful. No one wonder he became a sex addict.

  3. "A History of Violence." Anyone who enjoyed watching Viggo Mortensen searching for a ring with some Hobbits will be surprised to see him embark on some less noble quests in this violent and explicit movie. Despite unnecessary shots of Viggo walking round naked, the movie does provide some enjoyable moments including a very graphic 69 style sex scene. 

  4. "Monster's Ball." There was a time, not so long ago, when Halle Berry shied away from nudity. This film proved that her prudish days are behind her. The director allows viewers to marvel at Halle's perfect figure from all kinds of angles as Billy Bob Thornton pleasures her in one of the best Hollywood sex scenes of all time. 

  5. "Wild Things." Sometimes a regular old movie sex scene is not enough and you have to throw in an extra girl just to push it over the edge. When the extra girl is a young Denise Richards, you are in Hollywood heaven. Just a shame they had to include Matt Dillon

  6. "Secretary." Maggie Gyllenhaal and James Spader sound like unlikely bed fellows, but they certainly now how to spice up a Hollywood sex scene. Maggie is not the most voluptuous movie star or the prettiest, but she was incredibly saucy as a kinky secretary and lucky old Spade was on the receiving end. 

  7. "9 1/2 Weeks." Kim Basinger was one of the hottest Hollywood movie stars of the 80's so it was only fitting that she helped launch the 90's with this sex filled picture. Kim wasn't just melting ice cubes when she frolicked naked with Mickey Rourke, she was also melting men's hearts everywhere. 

  8. "Little Children." She may have been cast as a dowdy housewife but Kate Winslet is Kate Winslet, and she never keeps her clothes on for long. In this movie she got rained on and decided to dry off by having sex while seated on a dryer.  

  9. "Atonement." An utterly tedious film came to life when James McAvoy leads Kiera Knightley into the library and gave her a lesson in the art of love making. The tall and slender Knightley stole the scene and the clever use of shadows and dim lighting left the viewers craving more in this Hollywood movie sex scene.

  10. "Mulholland Drive." Naomi Watts, is Australia's answer to Kate Winslet. She always seems to get naked in movies, which is why she is featured in so many Hollywood sex scenes. This one is among her best because it features her and another woman.
