OK, this may be my most off the wall question ever
 
Most awkward sex scene ever on film?

Because in the past week, I feel like I've witnessed two titans of all time.


Sunday on HBO was that monstrosity between Booth and that poor Marnie [Brian Willam's daughter IRL BTW] on Girls was about the weirdest I've seen since Blue Velvet.

Then I was catching up on American Horror Story Asylum, and witnessed the somehow simultaneously slo-mo and feverish coitus between Lana and Dr. Thredson as Lana was his Surrogate Mother/Future Lampshade in his Sweeney Todd Basement, and thought 'has the world just gone through the looking glass?'

[particularly as I've been sqiqued-out with the whole Lana/Threadson sexual politics storyline with it being written by two gay writers and both the actors portraying them being gay playing straight/repressed as well]


Sorry if a repost.

Played for straight intentional comedy, I liked the "Hi. Hi. Hi." scene of Forgetting Sarah Marshall.

Actually, any sex scene that comes on when you're in the same room as your parents is the most awkward sex scene.

Anatomy of Hell

per http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anatomy_of_Hell
Anatomy of Hell, like many of Breillat's other works, explores female sexuality, in this case focusing specifically on male fear and resentment of that sexuality. The plot follows an unnamed woman who is discovered in the middle of a suicide attempt in the toilet of a gay bar by one of its male patrons. The woman offers to pay the man to watch her for four days, during which time she explains her views on sex and sexuality.

Or with your dog who just got neutered.

Oh Yeah, I also forgot about that depraved Serbian Film of a couple of years ago. I won't say more than that. And I haven't seen it.

But I'm talking more about plasuaible, American mores, sex scenes of a more pedestrian variety. Things that actually make movie screens.

The sex/rape scene in the movie "Kids" was awkward/disturbing.

:LOL:, this is the clear cut winner... just the other day i was watching netflix at moms while doing some laundry, it was a documentary titled something like "Life After Porn", about the travails of various porn stars when they leave the business... and just as some raunchy scene comes on, here comes Ma from her shopping trip... WHATS THAT?

Turned it off after explaining it wasnt real porn, just a show.

that one in showgirls where the chick is waving her hair around... it's hilarious. so ****ing exaggerated.

I should have added, those who have seen the scenes in Girls and American Horror Story should have pre-eminence.

Tangentially:

What's the deal with the show Girls? I don't get HBO, but salon.com hasn't been this obsessed with something since Barack Obama appeared on the political scene. It's kind of creepy how much they obsess on this show.

Everything I read about it makes me think it's Sex in the City with a dumpy hipster instead of Sarah Jessica Parker.

It's incredibly hard to explain. I've never come across someone who I'm less physically attracted to, yet found more endearing, than Lana Dunham. She;s not just 'dumpy,'' she's doughy in the middle, and flat in the chest, and with a weak chin. But there's an endearing quality to her that breaks through in moments in the show. Part of it is her writing such great material at such a young age. It's not just 'Sex in the City rebooted.' It's Millenials growing up in a post SatC world with all the expectations and disappointments adjusted and rationalized. She [and her friends] are growing up in a perfect situation for their demographics, yet are both flailing and thriving in said situation, depending on your metrics.

The key is her eye for minutiae. In the most recent episode, there's a 5 second scene of her trying to do the workout being shown on the TV that's the most depressing and endearing scene I've seen in a long while. A while back in season 1 there was an extended scene where a rich guy who had lured two hotties to his impressive crib, but they were amused with him than impressed, and he loses his shit in an impressively inventive way. You have to see the scenes to realize their import. There's no more I can say.

It's the epitome of a a 'you had to see it' situation. Watch 2-3-4 episodes of the show and come back and discuss is all I can advise. I've never seen anything so contemporaneously repellent and adorable in a long while.
