Description

From Last Tango in Paris to American Pie to Brokeback Mountain—a look at more than 100 erotic films, with in-depth analysis and fascinating behind-the-scenes anecdotesThe first book to look at truly contemporary erotic cinema, this publication gives in-depth analyses of sex scenes from more than 100 films, more than half of them released in the 21st century. Beginning with an overview of how depictions of sex on screen have changed over the last 40 years, with particular attention to censorship controversies, the book is divided into three main parts—erotic genres, themes, and acts—and covers sex comedies, body horror, alien sex, and erotic animation; gay, lesbian, bisexual, and trans films, movies about youth, marriage, and infidelity; films dealing with incest, blasphemy, and death; on-screen nudity and voyeurism, masturbation, oral and anal sex, the ménage à trois, and the orgy; and bestiality, rape and sadomasochism. The films discussed include 9 Songs, Bad Education, Black Swan, Intimacy, Last Tango in Paris, The Reader, The Wayward Cloud, Y Tu Mamá También and many more.
