Sometimes non-porn movies have sex scenes that are a little more real than others. The fifi men’s sex toy crew has hand-picked five of the most notorious instances of real sex in non-porn movies.
Sweet Sweetback’s Baadasssss Song – 1971
This film, released just months before Shaft, is widely considered the first blaxploitation movie. It was 1972’s top-grossing independent film. In the movie’s many sex scenes, director/star Melvin Van Peebles really gave it to the ladies. After contracting gonorrhea from one of the actresses, he applied for (and received) worker’s compensation, and used the money to buy more film. We applaud his dedication.
In the Realm of the Senses – 1976
Shot in Japan, this was the first non-pornographic film to feature an erect penis and fellatio. The film was shipped to France for developing to avoid strict Japanese censorship. Many countries banned or censored it for years. It’s based on a true story of a couple in 1930s Japan who mutually explored all the extremes of the sensual world, up to and including death. If you like your sex with heavy doses of drama and metaphor, you won’t find a more intense erotic story on film.
Caligula – 1979
Federico Fellini’s work is so infamously bizarre and over-the-top that “Felliniesque” became a word. Caligula is based on the sex-crazed (and just generally crazed) real-life Roman emperor of the same name. There’s group sex with real blowjobs, penetration, and ejaculation.
Romance – 1999
This French film stars Caroline Ducey as a woman who takes a lover because her boyfriend isn’t interested in sex. She loves him, but she has needs, dammit, so she scratches her itches with the likes of Italian porn legend Rocco Siffredi. The sex is real and includes bondage as well as the vanilla stuff.
The Brown Bunny – 2003
Best known for the scene in which Chloë Sevigny’s character goes down on Vincent Gallo’s character, this is perhaps our most obscure choice. Sevigny was already an Oscar-nominated actress, and possibly the only one ever to give a real blowjob in a movie. She’s gone on to bigger and less erotic things, including Big Love and American Horror Story.
We’re not going to suggest what you might do as an accompaniment to your viewing habits, but for those moments when you’re feeling the need for release, you can buy the best male masturbator from fifi.Back
