12 Amazing Lesbian Sex Scenes in Movies-Watch

12 Amazing Lesbian Sex Scenes in Movies-Watch

Earlier this week SF Gate compiled its list of Great Movie Sex Scenes (including a few girl/girl scenes), but that prompted us at SheWired to start thinking about sex in the movies only to realize we've, oddly, never done our own list of fave lesbian sex scenes on celluloid. Since it's spring, and a holiday weekend is right around the corner we figured we'd relive some of the hottest girl/girl sex scenes ever captured on the big screen. Yes, there are plenty of the usual suspects but when a sex scene is just that good it doesn't matter how many times you watch it.

Bound (1996)

Starring Gina Gershon as Corky and Jennifer Tilly as Violet, this mob thriller serves up a heavy cocktail of sapphic sex and mafia intrigue. It went on to win the 1997 GLAAD Media Award for Outstanding (wide-release) Film for co-writers and co-directors Andy and Lana Wachowski (Matrix Trilogy). And no small wonder since the chemistry between Gershon and Tilley is palpable. A modern classic for sure! 

Room in Rome (2010)

Rome stars international actresses Elena Anaya (The Skin I Live In) as Alba and Natasha Yarovenko (Diary of a Nymphomaniac) as Natasha. The two beautiful strangers quickly become lovers, who eventually connect on a much deeper level, over the course of an intense and adventurous evening of sex in Alba’s hotel room. HOT!

Better than Chocolate (1999)

This Canadian import stars Karyn Dwyer as Maggie and Christina Cox as Kim, new girlfriends who are forced to deal with the normal stress that comes along with starting a new relationship, all while dealing with Maggie’s family and her own coming out issues. Dwyer and Cox are electric together.

Elena Undone (2010)

Undone is the love story between Elena (Necar Zadegan), a stay at home mother and pastor's wife, and Peyton (Traci Dinwiddie), a well-known lesbian author. The two share an intense connection immediately upon meeting and sparks fly as their forbidden love becomes harder and harder to hide.

Black Swan (2010)

Natalie Portman (Nina) and Mila Kunis (Lily), need we say more?

The Incredibly True Adventures of Two Girls in Love (1995)

Director Maria Maggenti's story of first love stars a young Laurel Holloman as the adorable baby butch Randy who falls for the school's pretty, popular girl Evie played by the stunning Nicole Ari Parker. Their first time is funny, touching, sexy and sweet, and we see where Holloman got some of her training for those upcoming The L Word sex scenes. 

With Every Heartbeat/Kyss Mig (2011)

Thirty-somethings Mia (Ruth Vega Fernandez) and Frida (Liv Mjönes) meet at their parents' engagement party, but the stepsister’s relationship ignites into a passionate affair that will have negative repercussions on their entire family.

The Sea Purple/Viola di mare (2009)

Loosely based on true events, Purple is the story of childhood best friends Angela (Valeria Solarino) and Sara (Isabella Ragonese), who cross the line from platonic to lovers in this drama that explores gender roles in the 19th century.

I Can't Think Straight (2008)

We're going to use this line again -- Sheetal Sheth and Lisa Ray, need we say more?

Summer Lover/Sappho (2008)

Newlywed American wife Sappho (Avalon Barrie), honeymoons with her husband in Greece, but once there, she meets and begins a torrid affair with Helene (Lyudmila Shiryaeva). Less of the husband and more of the ladies please…

The Hunger (1983)

Long before Twilight and True Blood The Hunger examined the love triangle between vampires Miriam (Catherine Deneuve) and John (David Bowie) and human Dr. Sarah Roberts (Susan Sarandon). The love scene between Sarandon and Deneuve was precedent setting. The line "Are you trying to seduce me Mrs. Blaylock?" would become quotable in lesbian circles -- at least in ours -- for decades. 

Honorable mention – Gia (1998)

Even though it’s technically a made for TV (HBO) movie, Gia introduced a young, exciting and Angelina Jolie to the world. And who didn't want to marry Elizabeth Mitchell, who played her long-time love in the film? Jolie went on to win a Golden Globe and a SAG award for her role as the sexually adventurous lesbian supermodel Gia Marie Carangi. Filled with graphic sex scenes, Gia is guaranteed to please.
