8 Best Lesbian Sex Scenes in Movies

Lesbian sex scenes — or for that matter any sex scene — are not easy to pull off. Apart from the discomfort of shooting them in front of the film crew, the fact that the actors in the scene may not themselves be lesbians makes the scene difficult. But hey, that’s why they are called “actors”. Their job is to make unbelievable look believable. We have previously listed down best lesbian movies and best movie sex scenes. Today, we are going to specifically look at the list of top lesbian sex scenes in movies.

8. Wild Things (1998)

Denise Richards and Neve Campbell’s sensual kissing in swimming pool is a visual you can never forget if you have watched this bordering-on-ludicrous-saved-by-sex-film. But actually the pool scene isn’t the sexiest scene Wild Things. It is the hot threesome!

7. Jennifer’s Body (2009)

Megan Fox making out with Amanda Seyfried? How can this scenes not be on this list. The film is a horror-vampire story of a young woman who, inhabited by a demon, turns her back on patriarchal society, murdering men and taking herself away from them as a sexual object by reserving her sexuality for other women. Well, if you don’t care much about the plot, just stick with two hot women making out.

6. Heavenly Creatures (1994)

Before Kate Winslet became wildly famous she made her debut in Peter Jackson’s (yes, the director of Lord of the Rings) Heavenly Creatures, a film about murder and unrequited lesbian love between teenaged best friends. While the film is surely good on its own, the lesbian sex scene between Winslet and Melanie Lynskey makes it alive,

5. Vicky Cristina Barcelona (2008)

‘Vicky Christina Barcelona’ is oozing with sexuality. Is it because of the presence of three super-hot actresses or the underlying implicit sexual energy, I will leave that for you to decide. One scene in particular that’s extremely provocative in the film. When Cristina (Scarlett Johansson) and María Elena(Penélope Cruz) make love to each other in a photo-processing room that’s dimly lit in red, it is irresistibly provocative. What makes it even more darkly exciting is that both women are in love with the same man.

4. Black Swan (2010)

I have never been a big fan of Darren Aronofsky. But I’ve always admired his ability to craft such bizarrely creepy atmosphere in his films that makes them so distinctively intriguing. ‘Black Swan’ has a frighteningly sensual scene where Mila Kunis and Natalie Portman get intimate in a an incredibly tense sequence. Aronofsky keeps you on the edge here as the tension builds up while managing to infuse a wildly sensual tone, further elevated by the venomous beauty of Mila Kunis.

3. Carol (2015)

Todd Haynes’ modern classic is a subtle, graceful tale of romance between two women in Manhattan in 1950s; a married mother going through a divorce and a young photographer. The main characters make out in a hotel room during a vacation in a stunningly captured moment of sexual liberation and emotional freedom. It’s a gorgeously shot scene, enriched with a sense of warmth and tenderness that you wraps you up in its humanity. Cate Blanchett’s magnetic feminine charisma further brings a rare maturity to the scene.

2. Blue is the Warmest Colour (2013)

Perhaps the greatest romantic film of this decade, Abdellatif Kechiche’s ‘Blue is the Warmest Colour’ tells the story of Adele who meets an attractive, blue-haired painter in a lesbian bar and forms a deeply intimate bond with her. In one of the most famous sex scenes ever filmed, Kechiche captures every breath of passion his characters exude in a long 6 minute take with no cuts and intense focus on the nuances and details that bring an incredible amount of realism on to the scene. Some criticised the scene for its length but it floats like a wave with unbridled desires and emotions, overwhelming you with its raw intimacy.

1. Mulholland Drive (2001) – Betty and Rita

For readers of our site, this would hardly come off as a surprise. But the biggest issue with a film like ‘Mulholland Drive’ is that it somehow manages to creep on to every list for its open to countless interpretations and meanings. However, the one thing that I believe fascinates most people here is the irresistibly powerful lovemaking scene between Betty and Rita midway through the film. Emotions are locked, desires unfeigned and souls intertwined. The sheer amount of grace, passion and intimacy thrown on to the scene here elevates the film to new heights as we get a peek into the characters, their frailties and what makes them so vulnerable.
