It was a prettayyy, prettayyy good year when it came to sex in the movies and TV. Here are the best sex scenes of the year.
The most hilarious awkward sex scene of the year comes courtesy of director Judd Apatow, writer/star Amy Schumer, and an unlikely third party: John Cena, the WWE hardbody with a heart of gold. In Trainwreck, Cena plays Schumer’s chiseled, hung, and closeted boyfriend who’s great at pumping iron and awful at talking dirty. And really, the mere sight of Cena’s hilariously sculpted physique on top of a spread-eagle Schumer is enough to elicit belly laughs.
Love (Dir. Gaspar Noe)
The most NSFW film of the year was this 3D exploration of sex courtesy of French-Argentine auteur Gaspar Noe. And while far too much of the press coverage of the film focused on one silly close-up shot of a penis ejaculating into the faces of cinemagoers, Noe’s psychosexual odyssey was filled with several intimate, very hot sex scenes—none steamier than the initial three-way scene between the film’s stars that sends each of their lives spiraling out of control. It’s a true feat of flexibility, as the threesome’s writhing, beautiful bodies contort in every which way.
