The following films contain the 10 best Hollywood movie sex scenes ever. There have been plenty of steamy sex scenes in films and such scenes can cause your pulse to race and your palms to sweat. Let's face it: Sex sells and we applaud that.

  1. "Bound" Gina Gershon and Jennifer Tilly star as lovers who want to steal money from an ex-boyfriend mobster. If there is anything sexier than bad girls, it's a bad girl sex scene. Both women manage to set the screen ablaze with their kinky sex acts.

  2. "Mr. and Mrs. Smith" The only thing better than angry sex that follows violent gun play is when that angry sex involves Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt. Two of the most painfully sexy people on screen ravish each other after an action packed scene of destruction.

  3. "Y Tu Mama Tambien" Every road trip should include a good romp in the sack with a smokin' older hitchhiker. Two teenage boys pick up a mysterious older woman through their soul searching journey through Mexico, resulting in a steamy threesome that needs no subtitles.

  4. "Gia" Angelina Jolie could fill many spots on this list, but she guarantees a spot for this film. A divine girl-on-girl scene that doesn't hold back. As the troubled late model Gia Carangi, Angelina seduces a young photographer (Elizabeth Mitchell) into bed with heart palpitating results.

  5. "Wild Things" There is always room for a threesome. The nudity from Denise Richards and the lack of nudity from Matt Dillon are two perfect elements to this naughty tryst. The addition of Neve Campbell's white trash character complete this delightful entanglement.

  6. "8 Mile" A scene that is uncomfortable and realistic, which makes it all the more sexy. Seeing Eminem in such a vulnerable state almost seemed wrong at the time, but the scene, which also features the late Brittany Murphy, was all kinds of right.

  7. "Unfaithful" Diane Lane has always been pretty, but this movie made her sexy. Perhaps the best sex scenes stem from an amoral place, the character is cheating on her husband and that's wrong, but, oh, how she makes it feel so right.

  8. "A History of Violence" One of the many Maria Bello films in which she offers a generous amount of skin and a kinky love scene. This time, she includes a cheerleading costume, always a bonus.

  9. "Secretary" Sadomasochism is not usually shown with such care. Two characters that clearly have some sort of love for each other continue to engage in dominant and submissive acts. Maggie Gyllenhaal manages to take her submissive and naive character and turn her into a sex goddess.

  10. "The Notebook" This is a great sex scene that has a voyeuristic quality simply because the actors' chemistry feels so real, it's almost like we shouldn't be watching it. Probably the least graphic scene on the list, "The Notebook" contains a scene of pure passion expressed after years of repression. If you want a really intrusive and more naughty version, check out the extended scene on the DVD.
