Finding the 10 best sex scenes in films might be a dirty job but we were more than up to the task.  If you ask someone to describe Hollywood in one word, that word would most likely be "sex."  That being the case, finding the 10 best sex scenes in all of movie history was not nearly as easy as one might think but here's our list:

  1. "Body Heat" - William Hurt and a shockingly sexy Kathleen Turner have several different steamy scenes in this movie but the best is when he sneaks into her apartment and proceeds to seduce her.

  2. "9 1/2 Weeks" - Is there anyone who thought this movie wouldn't be on here?  Is there anyone out there who didn't think we'd mention the scene with the ice-cube as one of the sexiest scenes in Hollywood?  This might have been an easily foreseeable choice, but there's a reason for that.

  3. "Mulholland Drive" - A sex scene between Laura Harring and Naomi Watts?  Yeah that's on the list.  The fact that the women have to rediscover their affections for each other and how it slowly builds to the sophic scene makes the actual sex that much better.

  4. "Secretary" - There are several "imagined" scenes, including one where Maggie Gyllenhaal is masturbating in the bathroom that makes the scene where she and James Spader actually engage in coitus that much hotter.

  5. "Unfaithful" - While we certainly don't condone extramarital affairs, the sex scene in the hallway between Diane Lane and Olivier Martinez is one of the best in film.

  6. "Bound" - Lesbian hookup between Gina Gershon and Jennifer Tilly makes the list for sure.  The seduction leading up to the scene is almost as good as you can really feel the sexual tension.

  7. "Monster's Ball" - Scene between Billy Bob Thornton and Halle Berry is even more riveting because you know his character is a stone cold racist.  First real sex scene that Berry did helps make this ultra hot.

  8. "Wild Things" - Lesbian tryst between Neve Campbell and Denise Richards when they were at their absolute smoking hottest.  This scene was every teen boy's fantasy.

  9. "Color of Night" - While the movie is widely panned as being terrible, Jane March is incredibly sexy and Bruce Willis cannot and will not turn her down when she wants to get down.

  10. "History of Violence" - There are two sex scenes that are particularly hot in this movie.  The first is when Maria Bello dresses in a cheerleader's uniform and she and Viggo Mortensen engage in a little 69. The second is when he takes her on the stairs after she finds out he is in the mob.
