14 movies with un-stimulated sex
Seeing people in the cinema, we sometimes note: it’s necessary how well we played! Right at least Oscar come on! No one even thinks about the fact that sex can not be simulated - we know how many “outsiders” are usually present on the set, and indeed, if everything is true, then this is already called differently on the shelves ordinary video stores misses. But from each rule there are exceptions, and in rare cases, real intercourse still penetrates the big screen. We remembered the most remarkable examples from this series.
1. Sweetbackback: The Git Song (1971) / Sweet Sweetback’s Baadasssss Song
detective / drama / thriller
Director: Melvin Van Peebles
Cast: Melvin Van Peebles, Simon Chuckster, Hubert Scales, John Dullaghan, West Gail
Indie director Melvin Van Peebles knew exactly what he needed when he wrote the script, shot and edited a film about the misadventures of a black sex machine named Sweet Sweetback. The main character has to break a lot of genres taboos that existed in the early 70s: kill dogs and policemen, urinate and, of course,have a lot of sex, including interracial. It was not easy to sign someone like that, and Melvin didn’t have any money for either the stuntman or even the understudy, because the director himself played the main role, bravely having a number of sexual acts with barely familiar people in front of the camera. Confirmation that everything was in reality was gonorrhea picked up by him in the process of filming, for the treatment of which Van Peebles even managed to dislodge a certain amount from the Film Directors Guild - however, as a result, the money went to the production of the film. The result, as it turned out, was worth it: “The song of the bastard” became one of the most profitable and discussed films of 1971, simultaneously creating a whole new subgenre - “blacksplotation”.
2. Pink Flamingos (1972) / Pink Flamingos
detective / comedy / horror
Director: John Waters
Cast: Devine, David Lokari, Mary Vivian Pierce, Mink Stole, Edith Massey
The film by the famous film director John Waters about the deviant entertainment of two families of weak-minded freaks is strictly not recommended for lovers of “strawberry” to watch: your nerves can not stand what they see. Since the director, by his own admission, sought from the audience not a standing ovation,and the vomiting reaction (at the premiere, viewers were even handed out hygienic packages), then he had appropriate methods: sex with crushed chickens, defecation and masturbation, eating one of the characters dog shit, blowjob mothers own son. The fact that the “mother” played the famous transvestite Devine (his real name is Harris Glenn Milsted) does not bring the amenity to the picture; however, with all its obscenity, the sexual component is still somewhat fading against the background of shit, which Devine, according to his interviews from different years, has either eaten or not eaten. As a result, the director put an end to the misinterpretation, responsibly declaring that, in view of the almost zero budget for props and understudies, he did not have any finances. So everything was “for garlic” (except for cannibalism), and unfortunate chickens, alas, also died for real.
3. The seeker (1980) / Cruising
detective / drama / mystic / thriller
Director: William Friedkin
Cast: Al Pacino, Paul Sorvino, Karen Allen, Richard Cox, Don Scardino
William Friedkin's thriller about a serial killer dismembering gays was remembered by the audience not only by Al Pacino, but also by scenes of same-sex sex, captured by the camera in numerous gay clubs.“Everything was real,” the director of the Exorcist Devil later admitted, saying that initially the New York gays, with whom he made acquaintances in special bars, helped him to collect material for the tape, and then they also played in it. - In my film there are no members of the Actors Guild of extras. We paid these guys as extras, but in fact they were just hanging out in the places where we were shooting and doing this. ” The studios that financed the film were not thrilled with the result, which shone the pornographic rating of “X”, and made it monstrously cut, leaving most of the “strawberry” on the floor of the installation. But the tape still failed at the box office - it is believed that it was she who scored the last nail in the coffin of the New Hollywood era, which gave many independent directors money to make films "not for everyone." The cut scenes later, by the way, were restored by James Franco in the documentary “Interior. Leather bar "- and rightly, not for nothing that Fridkin tried, in fact.
4. Empire of feelings (1976) / Ai no korîda
drama / historical / romance
Director: Nagisa Oshima
Cast: Tatsuya Fuji, Eiko Matsuda, Aoi Nakajima, Yasuko Matsui, Meika Seri
The history of the Japanese prostitute of the 30s, despite the shocking frankness of the sex scenes accompanying her, even in her native Japan cost a tape of censorship edits, and the director Nagisa Oshima - the prosecution, in general did not have such serious problems with hire as subsequent erotic pieces genre. She managed to earn and cult status, supported by the undoubted artistic merit, and a standing ovation at Cannes. By 1990, the Empire of feelings managed to penetrate even into Soviet cinemas (albeit stamped as “children under sixteen viewing prohibited”), demolishing the roof of inexperienced citizens with a demonstration of fellatio and other unambiguous penetrations and causing outrage in the media “acts of genuine copulation without any veil” . So the Soviet man understood: in the USSR, there may be no sex, but in Japan it definitely is. By the way, the castration scene present in the Empire of Feelings was not real yet - even for Japanese filmmakers who are not particularly burdening themselves with moral issues, this would be too much.
5. Caligula (1979) / Caligola
adult / drama / historical
Directed by: Tinto Brass, Bob Guccione, Giancarlo Louis
Cast: Malcolm McDowell, Teresa Ann Savoy, Guido Mannari, John Gilgud, Peter O’Toole
Those who are not familiar with the story of the creation of “Caligula” are surprised at how Tinto Brass managed to lure such actors as Malcolm McDowell, John Gilgud, Peter O’Toole, Helen Mirren into the porn film. The casket opens simply: in spite of Brass's reputation, the tape did not reflect on them as pornographic - a lover of unshaven armpits really planned to make a historical canvas about the bloody Roman emperor, and all the sex he shot was simulated. But after the sponsor, the publisher of the Penthouse magazine Bob Guccione, began demanding “labor hardcore” (the status of “adult cinema” would increase the price of film tickets), Brass balked and was fired, and Guccione himself sat in the director's chair and finished six minutes of pure pornography, which was rather crudely built into an already finished movie without warning the other project participants. Do I need to talk about how loudly they hit the floor of the jaw of the leading actors at the premiere.
6. Ken Park (2002) / Ken Park
Directors: Larry Clark, Edward Lachman, Larry Clark, Edward Lackman
Cast: James Ranson, Tiffany Limos, Steven Jesso, James Ballard, Mike Apaletegi
After the scandalous, but still not pornographic “Babes” about teen sex life, director Larry Clark did not calm down and shot “Ken Park” - again about teenagers - in which he forced his characters to enter the territory of cunnilingus, blowjob, masturbation, group sex and other difficultly simulated things, shown in close-up. Given the rather young age of the actors who had to participate in actions of a sexual nature, the film caused a serious tumult in the press and was banned in several countries, including the United States. The arguments of the director, who assured that all the project participants had already turned 18, that is, they can rightfully play in any hardcore porn, have little changed in the eyes of most of the conservative society, who judged: teenagers, of course, can have sex, but show it in movie theaters, all the same is not necessary. And then suddenly the audience will learn something new ...
7. Brown Rabbit (2003) / The Brown Bunny
Director: Vincent Gallo
Cast: Vincent Gallo, Chloe Sevigny, Cheryl Tiegs, Elizabeth Blake, Anna Vareschi
No one today would remember this film if it were not for Chloe Sevigny in the main female role, which the central actor and part-time film director Vincent Gallo (who is also the producer and the author of the script) won over to a close-up fellatio to his beloved. In Cannes, "Brown Rabbit" so booed that Gallo promised to engage with the director, but, however, did not keep his word. Sevigny's career, too, predictably cracked - the next 10 years, not one of her interviews could not do without the penitential speeches that she had in vain confided in the director's instinct, who had promised to make a poignant festival hit. Today, in the era of hacking iPhones, you’ll surprise anyone with such videos, but at the beginning of the zero years, such scandals were still a wonder, so the girl got a great impression from society. The fact that her heroine was a drug addict in the plot, and indeed the scandalous blowjob happened only in Gallo’s inflamed character’s fantasy, changed little: on the film, everything was more than real, and the hordes of spectators were quick to make sure downloaded the scandalous tape from the network just for the sake of viewing the scene itself.
8. 9 songs (2004) / 9 Songs
drama / romance / music
Director: Michael Winterbottom
Cast: Keeran O’Brien, Margot Stilley, The Dandy Warhols, Franz Ferdinand, Bobby Gillespie
There is an opinion that the fashion for festival films, in which an abundance of sex covers the shortcomings of directing and acting, was laid by the musical erotic drama “9 songs” by Michael Winterbottom, the content of which can be briefly described by the words “scientist and student have sex . Unstimulated sexual intercourse between the heroes of Kiran O’Brien and Margot Stilley included the full gentlemanly set: classic sex, oral, ejaculation, and other naked attributes of porno-genre. The actors were given the opportunity to “rehearse” before filming (some of this material later entered the film), after which they agreed to the main shooting, but when the camera was turned off, O’Brien and Stilley were not interested in each other. The relations shown in the film were considered by the majority of critics as “unappetizing”, and the plot was absent (the tape didn’t really have any script). In addition, the British Parliament angrily condemned the director, who decided to troll public tastes with the sacramental question “whyyou can’t show love making, because it’s as natural as eating? ”, and the model that played the main role asked her to be removed from the captions before the release. Later, however, Margot ceased to hide: no matter how weak in all the plans turned out to be "9 songs", for her they became the start of a rather successful acting career.
9. Fuck me (2000) / Baise-moi
detective / drama / thriller
Directed by: Virginie Depente, Coralie Trin Ty
Cast: Karen Bash, Raffaela Anderson, Karen Lancaume, Raffaëla Anderson, Céline Beugnot
It is naive to think that only male directors can demand real sex from the actors. The criminal thriller “Fuck me”, staged by French women Virginie Depant and Coralie Trin Ti, was planned from the very beginning as an explosive blend of genre films in the spirit of “Natural Born Killers” and “Thelma and Louise” with hard scenes (the second director had a great experience in this regard, on both sides of the chamber). The role of the main characters - prostitutes Nadine and porn actresses Manu - were selected real actresses of the category "X", which allowed them to truly play pornographic scenes with which the tape was stuffed, and to cope with the dramatic component quite well.True, the story itself about girls embittered on men with a difficult past, who, in search of revenge, fuck and kill everyone who comes their way, was perceived by the audience too cruel and feminist, and the heroines turned out to be really repulsive. As a result, the tape was banned for hire in several countries and had problems with censorship even in liberal France. However, it would be strange if it happened somehow differently.
10. Irreversibility (2002) / Irreversible
detective / drama / mystic / thriller
Director: Gaspar Noe
Cast: Monica Bellucci, Vincent Cassel, Albert Dupontel, Joe Prestia, Philippe Naon
We know what you are thinking now. But no, we’re in a hurry to disappoint: the famous ten-minute scene of Monica Bellucci’s anal rape in the underpass, which made her career for young French director Gaspard Noé, is an imitation from the first to the last frame (as, by the way, and anal penetration in The Last Tango in Paris so we were talking about the famous shock movie moments). But in the film there are other unresolved moments, such as fellatio and masturbation. Noe before and after was fascinated by pornography - hardcore moments can be found in almost every film,starting with the full-length debut “One against All” and ending with short films of different years, and in “Entering the Void” he excelled and showed sexual intercourse from the inside out, although it was already photo-realistic computer animation. By the way, the erotic scene in which Bellucci is busy with Vincent Cassel is also filmed “naturally,” since the actors were in a happy marriage during the filming. But in this case, Noe spared the feelings of the spouses and decided to do easy eroticism.
11. Club Shortbus (2006) / Shortbus
drama / comedy / romance
Director: John Cameron Mitchell
Cast: Lee Suk-Yin, Paul Dawson, Lindsay Beamish, PJ DeBoy, Raphael Barker
In his romkom about the New York club of sex lovers, John Cameron Mitchell managed to show a whole range of "adult pleasures" - from masturbation and group sex to, how to say it is more correct, autofellation. The fact that all orgasms in the "Shortbus Club" are real, the director at the premiere could not report: everything is already visible with the naked eye. “I don’t consider my film pornographic,” he said later. - Since pornography is characterized by the absence of artistic tasks, its purpose is to excite.And I don’t think anyone will get an erection while watching my movie. ” Porn or not - you can argue about this topic for a long time, but celebrities could hardly allow themselves such a looseness, because the actors were recruited by the announcement: Mitchell watched five hundred video calls from different countries before he found enough cinema-like brave men ready to throw off false shame. To make it easier for them to relax, they and the cameraman worked naked during filming of explicit scenes. Despite the fact that the film was shot beautifully and really could boast of having a rather entertaining plot, the conservative public was somewhat taken aback by a kaleidoscope of sexual lewdness thrown at her, so that one of the leading roles, Canadian radio host Lee Suk-Yin, hire almost lost her job. Fortunately, Francis Ford Coppola liked the tape, and his intercession resolved the issue.
12. Romance X (1999) / Romance
Director: Catherine Breillat
Cast: Sagamore Stevenin, Caroline Duse, Rocco Siffredi, Francois Berleant, Reza Habouhossein
Frenchwoman Catherine Breillat is still in the debut drama "The Real Girl"forbidden wherever possible, and lain on the shelf for more than 20 years, showed how intricate things a teenage girl suffering from boredom can do with her vagina. In “Romance X” she decided to follow up on what a woman is ready for, with whom the beloved man refuses to sleep. The famous porn actor Rocco Siffredi, who helped the heroine to relax to certain limits, was called to help - critics counted masturbation, blowjob, sexual intercourse, ejaculation and other Kunshtyuki like sadomaso; all this, as can be understood, without any censorship, fear and reproach. The censorship began later, when some countries found it difficult to determine the age rating of the tape, so that for a period of time the viewer was asked to choose between several versions of various degrees of chopping. As a result, the original version was shown on several nightly TV shows in several countries, and the audience calmed down: well, Rocco Siffredi ejaculated a little bit in the frame, yes, yes ... That is nothing revolutionary. It would be much more apocalyptic if he read Shakespeare's monologues instead of his usual work.
13. Intim (2001) / Intimacy
drama / romance
Director: Patrice Chereau
Cast: Mark Rylans, Timothy Spall, Mark Rylans, Kerry Fox
He is a bartender, she is a theater actress. They have a little secret that should not be known to others. But the longer their secret connection lasts, the less lonely the bartender is satisfied with the rules of the game ... “Intimacy” Patrice Chereau caught the viewer's eye not so much with the naturalistic display of two people’s meetings who have nothing in common except quick sex on Wednesdays, but the repulsive nature of this naturalism: no makeup, no makeup, add to this hairy legs, acne, imperfect shapes, and you hardly want to revise the tape, the sole purpose of which seems to be the disclosure of aesthetics ugly. However, despite all the plot sagging, the new blowjob performed by the New Zealand Kerry Fox is still widely discussed on the Internet - it is thanks to him, as many believe, that the whole rather helpless tape took “Golden Bear” and “Silver Bear” in Berlin-2001 »For the best female role, as well as the award for the best European film" Blue Angel ".
14. The Nymphomaniac: Part 1 (2013) / Nymphomaniac: Vol. I
Director: Lars von Trier
Cast: Charlotte Gainsbourg, Stellan Skarsgard, Stacy Martin, Shaya Labaf, Christian Slater
Lars von Trier became famous as a pornographer on the recent “Nymphomaniac”, which abounded in sexual intercourse with the participation of stars, but in fact in porn films were present in his films before. In Dramedi "Idiots", for example, the main characters, allegedly psychiatric, arrange group sex, and in the "Antichrist" shows penetration close-up. Despite the fact that, according to the director, in all cases, extras were attracted to the filming of the most piquant moments, rumors claim that the sex of Willem Dafoe with Charlotte Gainsbourg in The Antichrist was quite real. And Shaya Labaf, whose head, as the “Nymphomaniac” press release swore, was pasted on a computer to someone else’s copulating torso, admitted in an interview after the premiere that he hadn’t pretended anything on the set. In general, one can argue over who specifically belonged to personal belongings, but at least the fact that in all of the above tapes excited sex organs entered into non-illusory contact is beyond doubt.
