15 Greatest Queer Sex Scenes in Film History Let's be real. The state of queer sex scenes in movies is a little bleak. Not only are our queer and trans characters always played by straight and cis actors, but they are often scrubbed clean of sexual particularities, kinky proclivities, personalities, real bodies, brown bodies, and a whole other mess of missing things.
Creating a definitive list of the best queer sex scenes from movies, to be honest, was not that hard because there aren't that many to choose from -- or at least ones we can actually see. You see, "queer" movies always do this funny, quirky thing where they forget to put the sex in the sex scene, *cough* Call Me By Your Name *cough*. Anyway, enough about those movies. Here are the best queer sex scenes where the filmmakers remembered to put the sex in them.
A dark tent and a bit of spit were all this scene required to get the job done, yet it's one of the only gay sex scenes anyone can ever name. I'm including it on this list because the film was part of a formative tide change in the queering of the film industry, despite being a mediocre movie. Also, the scene is very hot, and has been used as clandestine masturbation material for closeted teens everywhere, just for the glimpse of heath ledger's side cheek. I can't endorse the use of spit as lube, but y'all do y'all.
Oh, yes! That movie that every gay on the internet loved, but no one can really remember what it was about because it was kinda boring. Looking director Andrew Haigh did get his sex scenes right though, especially for this gorgeously realistic and honest moment between two men who meet up over the course of, wait for it, a weekend. The film finishes with one of the greatest blow job scenes in queer history, commenced by some consensual rough-housing.
Gia was such an unapologetically erotic movie, but to be fair, truly anything Angelina Jolie does can be considered erotic. The sex scenes in this movie, however, are a tad on the safe side, but as a product of two hours and six minutes of sexual tension, I'd say they're worth it. One of my favorites is preceded by a scene where Jolie gets groped through a chain link fence, and tbh, that was almost as good as the sex scene itself.
The world is greatly lacking in trans sex scenes, but this Chilean film starring Daniela Vega as a woman working through the loss of her lover has one of my favorite in recent memory. Her relationship with her partner, who is much older than her, is so honest, beautiful, and tender -- a quiet moment before an absolute storm of a movie. Plus, the scene is technically birthday sex, and who doesn't love birthday sex?
God's Own Country, or as I like to call it, Romanian Brokeback Mountain, is one of the most slept-on queer films from 2018. The sex scenes are also very sexy, but also feature a lot of heavy grunting, toxic masculinity, and very, very pale butts. My favorite sex scene, though, takes place in an outhouse. Porta potties are so arousing -- news to me! (Again with the spit lube, though? Be practical.)
This movie is just proof that Canadians are just eras ahead of us in the quest for exquisite sex scenes. This Xavier Dolan film's pivotal sexual moment happens when the two teen lovers are painting something together, and in a manic, rock music-backed scene, proceed to make love on a newspaper-covered floor, getting paint all over their bodies. Watch out for toxic chemicals, please!
If you've already seen The Handmaiden, prepare to divide your life into two parts. Life before seeing The Handmaiden, and life after seeing The Handmaiden. Aside from the fact that this Korean lesbian erotic period thriller (That's right, I said lesbian erotic period thriller!) is a queer gem of a movie, the sex scenes are some of the best I've ever seen on a screen. One standout, though, is the final scene which depicts -- well, I'm not gonna tell you, but let's just say it involves a string of large, silver jingle bells.
Told inside the story of the AIDS crisis as it occured in Paris, the (very hot) activists that lead this film have deeply fulfilling sex lives that paint HIV positivity without stigma, and pair sex with very honest depictions of what it meant to be a person living with AIDS at that time. There are so many incredible sex scenes, I had a hard time just picking one, but I will say that the final scene is so beautiful that it brought me to tears -- and it's a handjob! A handjob brought me to tears!
Love scenes in motion pictures are as old as those flickering images, but while some gay depictions of amour did appear in the early silents, the evil censors (calling out the Catholic Legion of Decency) cast a firm grip on Hollywood and the mere mention of homosexuality became verboten thanks to the production code. But while religion policed what moviegoers could and couldn't see, filmmakers had their own way of weaving in the homoerotic. Idiot watchdogs were just too stupid to see it. Case in point: This scene from the 1948 classic western "Red River," directed by Howard Hawks, where Montgomery Clift has his "gun" admired by John Ireland. The scene oozes gay tension.
In the late '60s, as the production code was justly reduced to rubble, filmmakers were finally allowed to explore previously taboo topics. The first all-gay movie ("Boys in the Band") begat the first gay kiss in a major studio film ("Sunday Bloody Sunday"). Bob Fosse's "Cabaret" provided one of the first explorations of bisexuality. As we entered the '80s, films like "Making Love" and "Parting Glances" explored gay love on an entirely new level, albeit tamely. By decade's end, sex scenes in queer-themed films had begun to emerge, and in the '90s, with the birth of the New Queer Cinema, they were bolder and racier than ever.
Note that seven of the 10 scenes noted below were available via YouTube, but because of the graphic nature of three of the selections, trailers are linked for these three selections. We suggest you stream them or purchase a copy to see the scenes.
James Ivory was a lot more groundbreaking than he's given credit for. His adaptation of E.M. Forster's "Maurice" is one of the most enticing films ever made that deals with coming out. And there is nothing more heart-poundingly stimulating than the anticipation felt in the scene where sex-stud Scudder (Rupert Graves) climbs up the ladder and into sex-starved Maurice's (James Wilby) window, tells him, "I know, Sir," and starts ravaging him. It's one of the hottest scenes ever captured on film. And the natural nudity comes a few scenes later, post-coital.
Sex Sells. It Also Matters Sex in cinema can be exploitative, cheesy, pointless, and/or totally erotic. But when it comes to representation of LGBTQ people in cinema, sex scenes have the power to hold a mirror up to audiences who see themselves reflected in the action on screen. For queer filmgoers, sex scenes on the big screen have often been an entry-point to understanding one's own attractions and desires.
Throughout queer cinema history, there have been important sex scenes that have advanced representation. From Desert Hearts' honest portrayal of healthy lesbian desire, to Moonlight's Oscar-winning depiction of attraction and shame, to BPM's insistence on showing that the AIDS epidemic couldn't strip gay men of their basic humanity, sex scenes have been integral in the evolution of LGBTQ cinema.
Desert Hearts boasts one of the first lesbian love scenes actually directed by a lesbian. Director Donna Deitch was aware of that fact while making the film, and she handled the sex scene very carefully. Her groundbreaking film tells the 1950s-set story of Vivian (Helen Shaver), who while en route to Reno for a divorce, meets and falls for the enigmatic Cay (Patricia Charbonneau). In the writing process, Deitch made a point to give the love scene a beginning, middle, and end that included dialogue. While filming, she didn't shy away from the slowness of their first kisses or the tenderness of a woman kissing another woman's breast. When editing, she adamantly refused to lay a score over the scene and opted to let the action speak for itself. All of her bold choices broke from portrayals of lesbian love that came before it. To this day, her work offers a still-fresh and still-steamy experience of female passion. --Allison Tate
Sex only happens three times between Russell (Tom Cullen) and Glen (Chris New) in Andrew Haigh's revelatory 2011 film, Weekend -- and the first time you don't even see it. But it's definitely quality over quantity when it comes to everything in this hyper-realistic British gem. Aided by a genuine chemistry between the leads, the sex scenes are intimately shot; the camera is nearly as close to the (seemingly) naked bodies as it is in porn. The lack of gloss and abundance of realism -- hair is mussed, mouths gasp with both pain and pleasure, body fluids are strewn about, and everything is lit in a drab palette matching a cloudy U.K. day -- is something rarely seen in gay films, or any movie, for that matter. Clearly an inspiration for Alain Guiraudie's 2013 film Stranger by the Lake, the gay sex of Weekend was clearly made by someone who knows it, and someone who appreciates when it's damn good. --Neal Broverman
As divisive as the elongated, acrobatic sex scenes punctuated with slapping and slurping sounds are in Blue Is the Warmest Color, there's no denying that the film from Abdelatiff Kechiche set tongues wagging with frank discussions about first love and the epic sex that can accompany it. The winner of the Palme d'Or at Cannes, the film's stars Lea Seydoux and Adele Exarchopoulos were so inextricable from the material that they were awarded the Palme alongside their director, making them the second and third women to win the prestigious honor in the festival's history.
Despite the sex scenes that had audiences squirming with either schadenfreude or delight, Blue Is the Warmest Color is a heartfelt coming of age and love story about young French women that boasts stellar performances from its leads. But the heartrending ending may leave viewers reaching for a bottle of red in which to drown their sorrows. 2b1af7f3a8
