5 Off My Head: Sex Me Ups

Francois Ozon's sexy thriller Double Lover starring Jérémie Renier & Marine Vacth is finally hitting screens in the US this Friday (I'll review it later this week but let it be known... it is both sexy and a thriller) - here's the trailer if you missed it. Also happening this week - The Quad here in NYC is in the middle of a screening series they're calling "Crimes of Passion: The Erotic Thriller" starring a buncha horned-up femme fatales doing bad things to dumb dudes; I got to see Paul Verhoeven's wondrously overblown The Fourth Man projected big yesterday, which was a big treat for me.

Point being I have sex on the brain! (Which is so different from the usual, I know.) I gotta get it out! What's the quickest way to get such thoughts out? Using your hands, I mean. You type a list, of course. So here, off the top of my head, are the first Five Sexiest Shots of the 2010s (So Far) that popped into my head.

A couple of rules I made for myself to narrow this down: this list does NOT include Sex Scenes - just shots that transcended Sex for me to represent the more elusive Sexy. And I didn't do anything for the past 12 months (hence the lack of Call Me By Your Name... but I still got some Guadagnino in here anyway) - I wanted to pick shots that have lingered for awhile, keeping the flame alive...

or Matthias & Ralph chatting poolside)
Louis Garrel dancing in Saint Laurent

Obviously these run personal - what works for one won't 
work for another - so please share your own in the comments!

I’m sure I have many favourite scenes but right now the only ones that come to mind are:

Alex Pettyfer and Matt Bomer pretend to fake kiss, its an awful tease but it works (Magic Mike)

Michael Fassbender and James Mcavoy in bed (Xmen First Class)

"Overblown" and FABULOUS! I first discovered The Fourth Man on VHS tape, it was my naughty secret gay movie! When Jeroen Krabbé lapped that kid's face like a thirsty hound dog, I nearly passed out!
