Sex comedies have forever ruled the genre of comedy – from the late 50’s till date, we have enjoyed and cherished those unforgettable dirty monologues and dialogues, the punchlines, the hot writhing women and the epic performances in the so-called sex comedies. The sexiness associated with such movies was normally very high and so was their impact. I might be crossing some lines here, but in a way, these sex comedies have hugely impacted the pop-culture in various countries, especially in the Americas and Europe.
Perhaps one of the biggest names who brought sex comedies to the fore and made them uber-popular is Judd Apatow, with his work across films like ‘The 40-Year-Old Virgin’, ‘Knocked Up’, ‘Funny People’, ‘This is 40’ to begin with, and of course films like ‘American Pie’ franchise and ‘The Hangover’ franchise followed suit, thus radically changing the way we used to watch and absorb sex comedies. Apatow is also credited with producing movies like ‘Superbad’, ‘Anchorman’ etc. which again are again typical slapstick sex comedies and stoner movies at the outset. In addition to hardcore sex comedies, we had witnessed movies like ‘Friends With Benefits’, ‘No Strings Attached’ etc. which were not mainstream sex comedies but were in a way a satirical take on relationships and casual sex, this altering the pop-culture in their own way.
Let genre be damned, sex is always, shamefully, the most hormone-crazed, bang for bucks category. Unequivocally, sex has sold a higher number of movies than any other sub-genre, directly or indirectly. Be it teen sex, incest, LGBTQ, erotic romances or sex comedies, there are only a handful of unsuccessful movies we can think of in this space. In the honour of Stifler’s mother and our extensive knowledge of bouncing actresses, we present to you a list of the top sex comedy films of all time. And please don’t forget to park your logic prior to this point before reading on further. Additionally, some of the films on the list are actually teen sex comedies. You can also stream several of these sex comedies on Netflix, Hulu, or Amazon Prime.
20. Revenge of the Nerds (1984)
A movie that was rightfully claimed as to be a “classic” belonging to “Snobs vs. Snobs” genre, ‘Revenge of the Nerds’ was often listed as one of the funniest sex-comedies of its time. Featuring Robert Carradine and Anthony Edwards as Lewis and Gilbert respectively (I know, it sounds like a stoner movie), the movie revolves around a bunch of freshman nerds and what they have been put up against in the freshman year of their college. Both are pitted up against another college fraternity called Alpha Beta, which leads them to join hands with other freshmen and form their own fraternity to fight the so-called “evil” if you know what I mean. Hilarious and logical at the same time, ‘Revenge of the Nerds’ deserves your attention.
