Occasionally that mature content can be dirty and disturbing leaving you shocked and rocked to your core. These instances often come from one of two places; graphic violence or graphic sexual content. Context is everything though, and that narrative shapes these situations into the irrepressible and unforgettable moments they are heralded as today.

Today we will be discussing 10 of those filthy sequences that while are potentially mentally and emotionally scarring, are iconic moments in the medium.
