Being totally and utterly disappointed with the film offerings from Hollywood as of late, my husband and I have been rather addicted to Sexy TV shows lately. We’ve already watched all the True Bloods there are, and we’re milking what we have left of the last season of The Tudors–allowing ourselves a taste of it’s deliciousness only one time per week because once they’re watched, you can’t un-watch them.
Can I just tell you how much I love, love, love the Tudors? It is the very definition of sexy, in my opinion. Maybe it’s because as a Queen myself, I have a deep appreciation for the trials and tribulations of a monarch, or maybe I like it so much because I’m a big dork and I’ve never really grown out of my I love wicked old books and stuff phase, or maybe it’s the good old fashioned bodice ripping and codpiece swelling that appeals to me, but I lurrrrrrve me some Henry VIII drama.
I find it funny though that they choose Hottie McHotterson Jonathan Rhys Meyers to play Henry VIII because while he’s really very pretty and fun to watch roll around naked on the screen:
Didn’t Henry VIII ACTUALLY look more like Mario Batali?
SEE? It’s totally out of control, right? They even stand the same way!
Swap around some orange Crocs and a fancy hat and you’ve got twins! You know King Henry with all his festering leg issues and stuff would have loved him some orange Crocs. He’d be all, “enough with these whoreish Queens! Bring-eth me my Royal Orange Crocs and a turkey’s leg and a happy king I shall be!”
That was a little ye olde English for you right there.
But I digress. What I’m saying is that once we finish with The Tudors, whatever sexyness will we watch, Toy with Mes?
I have no idea, but what I do know is that despite the craptacular showing from Hollywood lately, there are already some pretty awesome movies out there, each with a special dose of The Sexy and The Hot and The Heavy, just waiting to be enjoyed.
One of my favorites is Secretary with James Spader and Maggie Gyllenhaal. I found it romantic that those two Sickie Sickingtons (the characters, not the actors themselves, although I have my doubts about those two anyway) found each other and made one another happy in their own twisted way. Not everyone agrees as to the romanticness/sexyness of the closing scenes, but I thought it was really sweet and sexy. I do know that others find it disturbing, though. In fact, one of my friends had such an argument with her husband over it that he spent the night on the couch! She should have just spanked him and peed on his chair.
Boogie Nights was obviously pretty sexy, being about the porn industry. One scene that stands out for me though was the one where Dirk Diggler and Amber Waves get it on while filming the only official “porn scene” in the movie. That was actually kind of sweet… she was trying to help him and he was trying to do a good job and… I don’t know. I was touched. Plus it was Marky Mark!
Brokeback Mountain was another one! The scene in the tent. You know the one. Gay, straight, doesn’t matter! ’nuff said.
And what would this list be with out mentioning Dirty Dancing? There’s no question that the ending scene where Johnny tells Baby’s jerkwad dad that “nobody puts Baby in the corner” and then her takes her hand and they dance like never before and Baby finally does that fucking lift and then they run off together is pretty awesome, but my absolute favorite scene is the one where they’re in the studio for Baby’s “dancing lessons” and they’re crawling toward each other on the floor. Very. Hot.
Waitress with Keri Russell was kind of awesome, too. As a pregnant lady watching that movie with the sexy scenes between her and her OBGYN?
Yes. Sir. Sadly for me, my OBGYN is an old fat guy my dad’s age. Totally not the same. *shudder*
We can’t forget 9 1/2 weeks, can we? I’ve never been one for food and sex, but Kim Basinger and Mickey Rourke make it look all kinds of fun. And that dance she does to “You Can Leave Your Hat On?” I mean, it’s nothing compared to the sexy dancing I do for my husband, but it’s kind of nice if you like long leggy blonds doing a striptease in various bits of menswear and stuff. Plus this is back when Mickey looked normal.
And my girl card would be revoked if I didn’t include Unfaithful. Pretty much all of it. Yeah. The whole fucking thing.
Those are all I could think of, so I asked my facebook friends for their suggestions. A few people voted for the scene in the stairwell between Vigo Mortensen and Maria Bello in A History of Violence. I didn’t see that movie, so I can’t say.
Another person suggested the car scene from Titanic. You know the one where the windows are all steamy and a hand comes up and slowly rolls back down? I agree that was a good one.
Another person suggested the scene between Marisa Tomei and Philip Seymore Hoffman in Before the Devil Knows You’re Dead. I’ve never seen that movie either, but I watched the scene. Um…I’d call that a big yes.
And of course my pervy husband suggested Donkey Punch, Scene 2, Alex Sanders and Rachel Luv because he’s such a romantic.
Tell me Toy with Mes, what are some of your favorite romantic/sexy movies/movie scenes? I can’t make The Tudors last forever! Share your panty-wetters and tent-pitchers…
