Forums - Movies Discussion - How much does sexual scenes actually add to movies?

Rarely do they add to the movie's plot. 300, Conan the Barbarian and The Matrix Reloaded could have done without the sex scene, especially the Matrix Reloaded. That went on forever.

I think the last movie I saw that its sex scenes actually added to the film's plot was Oldboy.

I like 'em. They don't need to add to the plot to be good.



If they added anything meaningful to a movie then late nite movie channel movies would sweep the awards every year.



Sex scenes work best in porno movies.

Perfume: The Story of a Murderer, lots of nudity in a great movie other then that most sexe scene in movies are useless



Bet reminder: I bet with Tboned51 that Splatoon won't reach the 1 million shipped mark by the end of 2015. I win if he loses and I lose if I lost.

It is time to bring back morality, respect, discipline to educate people and put them on the right path to living productive lives. Family breakdowns and divorce rates of 40% to 60%+ is totally unacceptable. Too many children are growing up without boundaries and being educated by TV/Movies are usually offspring of single mothers.



so your saying people are zombies and don't know reality from fantasy? So,your saying sexual scenes do all of that? I have to disagree it's all just mindless entertainment. 



There not usless. If it's a bad movie,then those scences are the only redeming factor. Remember a campy movie called showgirls,those scences had to do with the whole plot. lol

That Matrix reloaded scene did go on forever.ACtually the whole time they were in Zion went on forever! I was just dying inside each second I had to sit there and wait for them to leave. Recently watched it again, and just had to fast forward over the whole thing, even though my GF never seen it before.

If you mean in movies that aren't porn then I'd say that not only do they not add anything but they make a movie worse. It's best when you see that it's going to happen or it's implied that it did happen.

Sex scenes in movies seem to be an overhang from every major film released in the 80's above a PG.

It was so expected the phrase "obligatory sex scene" was born.

They add so very very little in all truth.
