CINEMATIC CLIMAXES

The Most Realistic Gay Sex Scenes In Film

I was talked through it by the director. He would be telling me what I would be feeling in each take. Basically, gay sex, especially for the first time, is really fucking painful. And [director John Krokidas] said that he had never seen that portrayed accurately on film before. He wanted it to look like an authentic loss of virginity.”

– Daniel Radcliffe on losing his cinematic virginity in Kill Your Darlings.

We realized that there are a lot of movies out there that don’t accurately depict gay sex, as Daniel Radcliffe temptingly noted of his Kill Your Darlings director’s commitment to authenticity. In that spirit, and because we wanted an excuse to watch gay sex scenes all day, we decided to compile a list of movies that are not only realistic to the gay sex experience but some that are just a little too real. You’ll see what we’re talking about.

Check out 8 movies featuring realistic gay sex scenes…totes NSFW:

David’s Birthday

This Italian movie shows Matteo, a formerly straight man falling in love with his friend’s son David. The scene that gets real is when he’s interrupted in the middle of sex with David by his wife. Matteo doesn’t even stop pumping while begging his wife to understand. Blue balls are real.

I Love You, Phillip Morris

Jim Carrey hits a mustached daddy from the back. Clearly the execs couldn’t handle the hotness and it ultimately got a limited theater release. We’d give them a wider release any day.

Shortbus


John Cameron Mitchell created this movie as a real sex experiment and while it may have missed its mark at times, it definitely pushed the boundaries of what the public has seen. For example, it features a threesome between a gay couple and a random guy, which… gets weird. Bonus: the movie features Kiki of Kiki and Herb!

Shank

So, Shank is…graphic. Well, two guys do drugs and have sex in a car in the woods, which is mild enough, until one beats and robs the other. Also, the antihero is raped by his best friend and his lover is forced to watch. Besides all of the realness things get truly real when the main character and his lover have a touching, frank sex scene. Only watch this if you’re into S&M or rough play.

Shame

Michael Fassbender came to many a gay’s attention when he “performed” in this movie about a sex addict. The part that really gets our attention is when he goes into a sex club and gets orally serviced by a man, even though he’s not gay. There’s your straight man fantasy for ya.

Blue Is The Warmest Color

This three-hour adaptation of a Gallic graphic novel scandalized Cannes with what one critic called “the most graphic lesbian sex scenes in modern cinematic history.” The tale of a 15-year-old girl’s sexual awakening won the Palme D’Or at Cannes and features a starmaking performance by newcomer Adele Exarchopoulos.

Bent

Screen shot 2013-10-18 at 7.34.25 PM

Not exactly penetration, Clive Owen and his lover bring each other to climax while not touching each other at all.The two stand side by side, never look at or touch each other and reach silent climax. We don’t give it enough justice. Just watch the scene for yourself and imagine the rest.

Brokeback Mountain

FILM BROKEBACK MOUNTAIN - HEATH LEDGER E JAKE GYLLENHAAL

We’ll admit, this is the first film that comes to mind when we hear “gay sex in a movie” and for good reason. The infamous scene may have gone a bit too easy for first time — though that Jack Twist has certainly been around the block — but at the time, two mainstream actors going at it in a tent in the woods was a pretty big deal. And it also inspired the far more graphic Bareback Mount Him.
