Most of us can recall at least a few raunchy movie scenes from our teen years that we associate with sexual awakening.
Maybe you got turned on by watching your first threesome in Wild Things or perhaps you enjoyed getting to know the world of BDSM with Maggie Gyllenhaal and James Spader in Secretary—whatever floats your boat, we don’t judge.
That being said, these are just a few of the sexy movie scenes every millennial has probably gotten off to at least once.
1. The Crush (1993)
In Alicia Silverstone’s big-screen debut, the actress stars as Adrian, a mentally unbalanced girl who develops an unhealthy sexual obsession with her neighbor Nick Eliot. In one particularly steamy scene, Adrian goes as far as to strip down in front of Nick in hopes of luring him away from his romance with a coworker.
Elizabeth Berkley stars as Nomi, a dancer with big dreams who moves to Las Vegas in hopes of becoming a showgirl. There were countless sexy scenes in this 90s cult film including the topless ‘Chorus Line-like’ dance audition.
In one of her early cinematic appearances, Demi Moore portrays former FBI office assistant Erin Grant who is in desperate need of cash to regain custody of her daughter. To make extra money, Grant takes a job at the Eager Beaver strip club in Miami where she becomes the object of desire for a powerful politician. In one scene, she strips down on top of the congressman’s coffee table while he grabs at her ankles and knees.
4. Crash (1996)
David Cronenberg’s 1996 film Crash follows the twisted tale of a film producer who, after almost dying in a car wreck, can only “get off” when he recreates fatal crashes. This raunchy number opens with three separate sex scenes including one where Deborah Kara Unger is bent over a plane wing and taken from behind by her flight instructor.
5. Boogie Nights (1997)
It doesn’t get more sex-fueled than the 1997 hit, Boogie Nights. Eddie Adams (Mark Wahlberg) gets “discovered” by a porn director (Burt Reynolds) who helps him launch a career as an adult-film star named Dirk Diggler. During his audition scene, lead actress Amber Waves (Julianne Moore) demands Eddie strip down so she can see what he’s “working with.” The pair then start going at it on top of a desk.
6. Wild Things (1998)
Everyone enjoys a good old fashioned threesome, especially when it’s between the stunning likes of Denise Richards, Neve Campbell, and Matt Dillon. The trio’s champagne-drenched love scene is one every millennial remembers.
7. Eyes Wide Shut (1999)
Stanley Kubrick’s final film invites viewers to explore their sexual fantasies alongside a young and dashing Tom Cruise who dabbles in his more deviant desires at a mysterious mansion. The most iconic scene was a choreographed orgy function in which only the elite were invited to attend.
8. American Pie (1999)
Easily one of the horniest teenage films,American Pie, follows the story of a group of friends who are on a mission to lose their virginities by prom night. One of the most memorable early scenes features an attractive Czech exchange student undressing and playing with herself before climbing on top of Jim (Jason Biggs) who prematurely finishes.
9. Varsity Blues (1999)
It doesn’t get much better than a young Ali Larter wearing nothing but a whipped cream bikini and cherry nipples. Though, I’m sure the rest of the movie is just fine too.
10. Cruel Intentions (1999)
When two siblings decide to place a sexual wager, tempting the urges of a self-proclaimed chaste girl, things quickly get heated and out of hand. Amoral, manipulative teen-vamp, Kathryn (Sarah Michelle Geller) takes advantage of the sweet and innocent Cecile (Selma Blair) by attempting to ruin her reputation with a slow wet kiss in the park.
11. But I’m A Cheerleader (1999)
When Megan (Natasha Lyonne), a high school cheerleader with a popular football-playing boyfriend, is sent off to a camp that “corrects” homosexuality, she is surprised to find herself having romantic feelings for a rebellious and unashamed lesbian named Graham (Clea DuVall).
