Sex scenes are nearly as old as movies themselves. In fact, one of the first films to be screened for the public debuted in and was called The Kiss. It was quite steamy for its time, featuring a full-on brushing of the lips, which, let us tell you, really riled up the modest-minded folks of the late 19th century. These days, a sex scene has to shock for us to consider it among the greatest sex scenes of all time. It has to make us laugh riotously, recoil in disgust, squirm at the weirdness, or at the very least, rewatch it repeatedly because it's just so damn hot. There have been loads of movies featuring such boundary-pushing scenes, and only some of them starred Sharon Stone or Tom Cruise or puppets. From classics to recent releases, here are 70 of the craziest movie sex scenes of all time.

As titillating as the phrase "full frontal nudity" may sound, baring it all on screen is not always a sexy endeavor. Truth be told, nudity can be as frightening for an audience as it is for the thespian tasked with dropping trou see The Shining. Then there's also the gender aspect to consider, the fact that women are more often the ones to bare it all, while shots of naked men on film, for whatever reason, consistently causes a stir. Going back to the Forgetting Sarah Marshall example. It's easy to recall how often the movie became known for that Jason Segel dick scene in the first act. But if a man appears erect on film, for example, it can cause a whole rating scandal. That's why you're mostly unlikely to see it in mainstream cinema.
