Film’s Hottest Lesbian Sex Scenes

No, it’s not hot in here. It’s just these lesbian sex scenes burning the place down. From sweet and tender to heart-pounding thrillers, these are some of our favorite lesbian sex scenes because the actresses had real chemistry on screen –  which as we all know, is hard to come by.

Kiss Me (2011)

Sweet, lovely, and terribly touching, this scene from Kiss Me (Kyss mig) will melt your heart.  The story of two soon-to-be stepsisters who fall in love, is both romantic and tragic in a star-crossed lovers kind of way.

Blue Is The Warmest Color (2013)

How could a list about hot lesbian love scenes be complete without the inclusion of this movie? Sure, the most famous scene runs a little long  (to the tune of about 10 minutes), and reviews were mixed about its authenticity, in addition to the real problems we have with the exploitive nature of the director. But overall, the actresses had great chemistry, and the scenes are believable (and hot).

Bloomington (2010)

At times a little creaky, this scene is sensual and offbeat. It doesn’t quite have the raw urgency as some of the others, but it’s still sexy as hell. Maybe it’s because it’s in a library (the danger of getting caught…we know, so cliche, but still…) or perhaps the implicit vulnerability of the characters, but it’s definitely working.

Without Men (2011)

There’s a lot of camp in this movie about an island with no men, but if you can sort through the obvious pandering and silly lesbian tropes, there’s definitely a payoff. A payoff in the form of Eva Longoria and Mexican actress, Kate del Castillo in a very sexy scene that is only hinted at in the above trailer.

Mulholland Drive (2001)

Considered by some to be one of the most “beloved lesbian-themed films of all time,” Mulholland Drives gives the Rita and Betty love story the David Lynch treatment. Which is to say, it’s embedded in a gritty, unconventional narrative that is both frightening and provocative – making their love scene even sexier by proxy.

Black Swan (2010)

Yes to this. All of this. This film is beautiful and extremely well wrought, and as sexy as this scene is, it’s also incredibly unnerving. It’s not called a “psychological thriller” for nothing.

Bound (1996)

There’s very little hotter in movies and cinema than a lady boss handling her own business. In the case of Violet and Corky, they are two lady bosses facing down the mob and riding off “into the sunset together,” and the sex scene feels empowered without any self-consciousness. Two things that we find incredibly titillating.

Carol (2015)

Okay, sure… here’s a modern lesbian love story starring two straight women… again. But it’s just so tender and intimate that you fall in love with them. Swoon over them even….and start a fandom. Seeing Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara be so in love with each other AND be in the mainstream AND get nominated for lots of Oscars is a total turn-on.

Last but certainly not least..

Below Her Mouth

Last but certainly not least, this ENTIRE movie is the hottest lesbian sex scene! If you haven’t seen it, there’s no time like the present. Also check out AfterEllen’s interview with the cast HERE.

Tell us in the comments which scenes we should add to this list. The only rule is the actresses must have genuine chemistry! (no TV, just movies)
