Sometimes the flesh-to-flesh contact onscreen looks so real, you might wonder if the actors are really doing it. But sometimes we have more than an inkling. Here are several examples through the years. Viewers watching the hit romance An Officer and a Gentleman back in might have felt there was a certain authenticity to the lovemaking between Richard Gere and Debra Winger. And indeed, rumors circulated about actual sex happening during filming. They were never confirmed, and Winger, to the contrary, often complained about the animosity on set between her and her costar and director, Taylor Hackford.

Real Sex in the Movies - PROVOKR
In the film industry, unsimulated sex is the presentation in a film of sex scenes where the actors engage in an actual sex act and are not just miming or simulating the actions. At one time in the United States such scenes were restricted by law and self-imposed industry standards such as the Motion Picture Production Code. Beginning in the late s, most notably with Blue Movie by Andy Warhol , mainstream movies began pushing boundaries in terms of what was presented on screen. Notable examples include two of the eight Bedside -films and the six Zodiac -films from the s, all of which were produced in Denmark and had many pornographic sex scenes, but were nevertheless considered mainstream films, all having mainstream casts and crews, and premiering in mainstream cinemas. From the end of the s until the late s it was rare to see hardcore scenes in mainstream cinema, but this changed with the success of Lars von Trier 's The Idiots , which heralded a wave of art-house films with explicit content,   such as Romance , Baise-moi , Intimacy , Vincent Gallo 's The Brown Bunny , and Michael Winterbottom 's 9 Songs Some simulated sex scenes are sufficiently realistic that critics mistakenly believe that they are real, such as the cunnilingus scene in the film Red Road.
