The Wolf Of Wall Street
We are thrown straight into the deep end as the crude sex scenes and references are consistent from start to finish. The first scene we are presented with shows Jordan snorting a white substance from a woman’s butt crack. I think this really sets you up with what other dirty stuff to expect from the rest of the film… At least you’ll know from the get-go that this film should not be watched with your parents.
I had the pleasure of watching this in a classroom with my teacher for a film project back in college. Red Road, directed by Andrea Arnold, features one of the most cringe-worthy and uncomfortable sex scenes I’ve ever had the misfortune to witness. We’re talking about full on up close angles of stuff we really don’t want to see. No non-diegetic music, no script, just full on awkward sex that you’re just begging to end sooner.
Fifty Shades Of Grey
For anyone who has lived on earth, we all know why we shouldn’t be watching this with our parents. Kinky bondage, low key sexual abuse, spanking… just a few of the acts we definitely don’t want to have to witness with our mum sat next to us.
The first time Jack and Ennis have sex, its awkward, rushed, and there’s no eye contact. Just the rustling of denim, the grunts, and the tent door flapping about. Without any non-diegetic sound, it’s almost too quiet and the sex somewhat doesn’t seem enjoyable, which just makes the scene a whole lot more uncomfortable to watch, especially with its complete and utter lack of romance.
Watching Fogell finally “get some” is beyond awkward, and that’s probably down to the fact it reminds many of us of our own first times. Uncoordinated, awkward, and no one has any idea what they’re doing. Your parents will also relate. At least the scene is purposely made to be funny and uncomfortable; McLovin’ must’ve been ironic.
