If you are looking for the 10 best sex scenes in English movies, then you’ve come to the right place. Anyone who still holds on to that tired old stereotype of the English being prudish certainly hasn’t checked out the cinema coming out of the British Isles in recent years. This list proves it!

  1. "9 Songs." For fans of unsimulated sex on screen, “9 Songs” features what is without a doubt the best sex scene in an English movie of all time.

  2. "Notting Hill." The first time Julia Roberts and Hugh Grant finally do it is one of the most memorable moments in this film from 1999.

  3. "The Hunger." This heavy lesbian sex scene shocked filmgoers when it came out back in 1983. It is still one of the best and most memorable sex scenes in English movies we’ve seen to date.

  4. "Don’t Look Now." It might be a horror film, but it also features a pretty heavy sex scene that takes place in a hotel room in Venice between the movie’s two stars, Julie Christie and Donald Sutherland.

  5. "Friends." It might not be the best film ever made, but “Friends” features plenty of hot nudity and action between the two young co-stars, winning this a place on many a list of the best sex scenes in English movies.

  6. "Sirens." Hugh Grant plays a prudish English minister who is in for a major wake-up call when he moves to Australia in this sexy 1994 flick.

  7. "Jude." Based on the famous novel by Thomas Hardy, “Jude” features a very explicit scene with Kate Winslet and Christopher Eccleston. It is probably one of the most famous sex scenes in an English movie of recent years.

  8. "The Tall Guy." Few people have seen this film, which features Emma Thompson in her first big screen role ever–not to mention her very first sex scene.

  9. "Moonraker." This is probably one of the funniest sex scenes you’ll see anywhere–James Bond going at it in outer space. For sheer absurdity alone, we have to include “Moonraker” on our list of the best sex scenes in English movies.

  10. "Intimacy." Featuring a famous unsimulated oral sex scene, “Intimacy” rounds out our list of the best sex scenes in English movies.
