Peaches & Cream

Is this gay sex scene in ‘Call Me By Your Name’ the hottest ever to hit the big screen?

Sometimes a peach is not just a peach.

In honor of Call Me By Your Name coming out this weekend (as it were), featuring hunk Armie Hammer and twink Timothee Chalamet getting it on Italian style (see the movie, you’ll know when it happens), we’ve decided to take a little retrospective jaunt to some of the hottest gay sex scenes ever in the movies.

All these scenes feature some very hot actors in some very hot action.

You’ll want to uncross your legs for this one. Anyhoo, have a look at our picks for the sexiest gay sex scenes in the movies, and ask yourself: when is the peach more than just a peach?

1. Peachy Keen, Call Me By Your Name

Actually, the film teems with sexy and sensual moments, including Armie Hammer going commando, Timothee Chalamet sniffing his underwear (who wouldn’t?) and of course, the notorious fruity bit, scenes rendered all the sexier thanks to the love and longing the two men share in a movie critics are calling masterful.

2. Rooftop Love, Velvet Goldmine

So Ewan McGregor and Christian Bale get naked and bang on a rooftop as glitter pours down over them. That alone justifies the price of streaming the movie, though the film’s intriguing look at glam rock, and incredible performances by Bale, McGregor, Toni Collette and Jonathan Rhys-Meyers make this Todd Haynes rock musical a cult classic. Oh, and McGregor gets it on with Rhys-Meyers too. So, there’s that.

3. Cow poke, Brokeback Mountain

How could we not include the beautiful story of Jack and Enis, an occasion which affords the audience a chance to see Jake Gyllenhaal and Heath Ledger doing it doggie?

4. Campfire Love, My Own Private Idaho

Gus Van Sant’s hauntingly beautiful film about the life of two male hustlers features fantastic performances from Keanu Reeves and River Phoenix. Graphic sex alone doesn’t make their love scene around a campfire hot–its the genuine tenderness and affection. Though they treat sex as currency, their love for one another helps them see sexuality in a different light: an intimate one.

5. Drip Dry, My Beautiful Launderette

 

This tale of interracial love in the 1980s UK features an early, powerful performance from Daniel Day-Lewis. Their scenes of sensual and tender sex in a laundry mat play as sexy as they do funny.

6. We’re Wet, Bad Education

So sometimes what a movie doesn’t show has as profound effect as what ends up on the screen. Case in point: queer director Pedro Almodovar’s near-masterpiece Bad Education, about a psychological affair between a gay filmmaker and his boyhood love. Or is it? Bad Education operates as a sexy mystery, with lots of betrayal, plot twists and homoeroticism. Though the movie features a number of sex scenes, we enjoy this gif of Gael Garcia Bernal’s wet tighty-whities.

7. Holy Rolling, Priest

This British drama (in no way connected to the bizarre 2011 sci-fi movie of the same name) features one of the most frank and graphic gay sex scenes ever committed to film. Hottie Linus Roache gets hot and heavy with Robert Carlyle (yes, Rumpelstiltskin from Once Upon a Time) as a priest who finally accepts the way God made him.

8. Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me, Stranger By The Lake

This French thriller caused a sensation on release in 2013 both for its suspense and its scenes of hot gay lovin’. The vacationing Franck falls for the handsome killer Michel, and the two begin a frightening, if super sexy, romance complete with some super graphic, full frontal, on the beach sex.

9. Ghosted, Undertow

This peculiar Peruvian movie about a love affair between an artist and a fisherman’s ghost (really) caused a sensation at film festivals back in 2010, not only for an unusual story, but for some wild and graphic scenes of gay sex. Our favorite: the encounter in the cave.

10. The Real Thing, Weekend

 

Brit blokes Russell and Glen have a one night stand that leads to something very different—actual affection for one another. Perhaps that’s why their final encounter together has such sexy power, and real emotional resonance.

Call Me By Your Name opens November 24.

    Their dancing is perfect for the time. And Timmy being awkward while trying to be cool is spot on.

      Armie is dancing a little too fast for the song.

    Odd isn’t it that an actor can play a deranged, sadistic serial killer and win awards for the performance, and only positive criticism, but play someone in love with somebody of the same sex and the wolves start howling and screaming abuse?
    I can’t wait to see this movie and hope it comes to France soon. Congrats to the actors involved, especially Arme for fielding all the negative criticism so well.

    Maybe it was being naked with that big Hammer for so long, why his make out scene with Marzia gave Chalamet the instant boner. Elio had a hard on and he felt for it with his hand, through his jeans. I was a bit surprised they would show and erection in his pants and the hand on.
