Like most people, my first memory of watching a sex scene is through my fingers, sitting on the sofa while Mum and Dad pretended that this was just normal and not the worst moment of your life to date. Seriously. Was there anything worse than that?
Of course as you get older and get to watch sex scenes in the slightly less awkward setting of your own private chambers, you start to develop an appreciation of the delicate art of two characters igniting their passion at last. Or, as the horny 15 year old me would say, “HELL YEAH! SEX! SEX! NIPPLES!”
But of course, there are some sex scenes that are just plain awful. Like, almost-make-you-want-to-never-even-have-sex-if-that’s-what-it-would-be-like awful. Here are 10 if the worst acts of carnal consummation ever committed to celluloid.

In fact it’s just two people in a car whose sexy time starts with the phrase “put your hand on me”, just one notch above “Let’s make ourselves comfortable” on the worst pre-coital lines list. When she slaps her hand on the comically steamed up glass, I wasn’t sure it was because she was enjoying herself or demanding to be let out horror movie style.
