No matter how you put it, everybody loves a good sex scene. But, in case you haven't noticed, movie sex is different from sex IRL. Hollywood has a habit of making sex look polished, glamorous, sensual, and romantic—a carefully choreographed dance between two genetically gifted actors who probably just met at a table read the day before. In reality, sex can be awkward, stiff, bumbling, and artless. Films that operate outside of mainstream Hollywood look to subvert the very idea of movie sex by depicting the darkest corners of the human psyche, and how it manifests itself inside the bedroom (or out of it, depending on your thing.) They depict sex the way it sometimes is: cold, ugly, and loveless, and have no problem ruffling the establishment's sexy feathers along the way. Below, six of the most controversial movie sex scenes ever.
