Shortest sex scenes
Sometimes, all you need is a few minutes — or even seconds — of sex. On screen, of course. Below, six films that prove short can definitely be sweet.
Cool Hand Luke (1967)
Voluptuous Lucille (Joy Harmon) knows exactly what she’s doing, sudsing her car — and her scantily clad self — to tease a chain gang of convicts. No failure to communicate here.
Unable to express their forbidden urges, Philly cop John Book (Harrison Ford) and his Amish damsel (Kelly McGillis) swing in a gaslit barn to ”(What a) Wonderful World.”
No Way Out (1987)
In a limo-set wham-bam-thank-you-ma’am, he (Kevin Costner) undoes her garter straps, she (Sean Young) fishes into his drawers, and when they finish, they introduce themselves.
When Harry Met Sally… (1989)
Sex is never a laughing matter, except for Sally’s deli faux-O. Meg Ryan’s ”performance” was so real that men didn’t mind the joke was on them.
Thelma & Louise (1991)
Wolfish J.D. (Brad Pitt) and his washboard abs show sheltered Thelma (Geena Davis) ”what all the fuss is about” with a motel fling that steals more than her innocence.
After Robbie’s crude letter to Cee (Keira Knightley) punctures the bubbling tension, their passions erupt in a library encounter where he (James McAvoy) literally sweeps her off her feet.
