This year's movies had us laughing and crying and everything in between, but mostly they had us turning to our neighbors and asking, "did you just see that? Much like the nipslip before it , movies will likely be remembered for their inclusion of blink-and-you'll-miss-it full frontal male nudity. We have David Fincher and his not one but two displays of his actors' no-no zones in " Gone Girl " to thank for that one. Of course, "Gone Girl" wasn't the only flick to show a little skin. Below, check out our compilation of the year's best movie nude scenes and a ranking of a few of our favorites, and then vote in the poll.
The 10 best sex scenes in movies | The Independent
What makes an effective sex scene? Well, it's as much about what the filmmaker chooses not to reveal as what they do show the viewer. Sure, porn will give you all of the body parts doing all of the things, but when it comes to watching a movie of the non-adult variety , there's a lot to be said about the framing and context of the act. Watching a slow-burn build to a boil between two characters with incredible chemistry , until they can't take it any more and simply must have each other? Seeing somebody who has been buttoned-up and reserved for the first two acts let go of their inhibitions and get down? Gasping as people who hate each other bang it out?
Some are funny Jason Segal shaking his stuff in Forgetting Sarah Marshall , some are romantic Kate Winslet getting naked in Titanic and some are feel-the-tingle-down-to-your-toes sexy Sharon Stone "forgetting" her panties in Basic Instinct. Here's our official ranking of the hottest on-screen moments ever. Name a nude scene more famous that Sharon Stone crossing and uncrossing her legs sans underwear in Basic Instinct. Disturbingly, Stone was never told how, er, revealing, the scene was, but she says she supports the choice to keep it in the movie.
It was a scene that made many cringe, but it signaled a transformation in the television landscape. Some of this is a result of technological changes. New streaming services, not bound by industry rules and norms, are taking bigger risks, such as the Amazon show Transparent about a middle-aged father coming out as transgender. And the growing number of platforms is making room for a more diverse array of writers on shows like Girls , Transparent and How to Get Away With Murder. This new generation of dramatists is disposing of the straight, often white male point of view and approaching sex from the female, gay or trans perspective.
