The plot

Directed by Nicholas Roeg, the movie details the story of Laura (Julie Christie) and John (Donald Sutherland), a wedded couple who uproot their lives and move from Britain to Venice for Johns job after the loss their daughter in a tragic drowning accident.

This scene is so perfect purely because of how raw and real it feels, with the mix of love and loss. The pair have had the task of deny for years after, that the sex was not real.

Persona (1966)

The plot

Directed by Ingmar Bergman staring Bibi Andersson and Liv Ullmann, it follows the breakdown of stage star Elisabet, where she and nurse Alma begin a hypnotic power struggle.

The scene in question

With a low lit room, Alma details the story of sex on a sandy shore with a new girlfriend and two youthful boys, an event which led to calamitous consequences. Producing a top sex scene with no sex, now that’s high-level. Elizabet’s (Bibi Andersson’s) straightforward description of the explicit acts makes the scene incredibly seductive.

It a chilly evening in the highs of Wyoming, but with whiskey not doing the trick, the two ranch boys cuddle up for warmth… This movie put gay sex on the movie map, causing wide controversy and critical up raw. But not to fear, Brokeback got the recognition it deserved and collected three Oscars for its fabulous acting and performance.
