Top 10 Sexiest Scenes Of 2009

best sex scenes

2009 was darn sexy, what with all the vampire, werewolf, and plain, old regular-people lust. So which sex scenes kept us on the edge of our seats? Here, our favorite sexy on-screen moments of 2009. 

1. True Blood's Sea of Nudity

HBO's foray into vampire drama gave us some of the most graphic and heated sex scenes we've seen since The Sopranos and Sex And The City. With so many to choose from, the best of the bunch is really a matter of preference. Our favorite was when Anna Paquin finally bared it all. We're assuming the scene came naturally to her, as she's in a real-life relationship with co-star Stephen Moyer. How To Date A (Real-Life) Vampire

2. Sapphic Love On House

Talk about fantasy fulfillment! When Olivia Wilde—one of the sexiest on-screen women of the year—explored her bisexuality on camera, Gregory House wasn't the only one who got a thrill. 

3. Zombieland's Tenderest Moment

We couldn't help but be pleased when Jesse Eisenberg's romantic yearnings for Emma Stone were fulfilled at the end of the film, but we were most smitten by the moment when he tenderly brushed her hair behind her ear. How To Translate Your Monster Crush Into Real Life

4. New Moon's (Second) Forbidden Love 

Bella sure does have a thing for fantastical creatures. As if the vampy Edward wasn't enough, in New Moon we're introduced to buff were-boy Jacob. As their sexual tension increased, so did ours, and since it was never resolved (unless you count that one instance of mouth-to-mouth resuscitation), well, we were left wanting…

5. Heroes' Girl-on-Girl Action

The sensual smooch between Hayden Panetierre and her roommate may have been a cheap ploy to expand the Heroes viewership, but we didn't mind. Thinking at first that her roommate is out to get her, cheerleader Claire was surprised to discover her own inner bi-curiosity.

6. Marisa Tomei Bares It All in The Wrestler 

Some of the most beautiful women we've ever seen haven't been scared to bare it all onscreen. This past year, Marisa Tomei joined their ranks with a nude scene in The Wrestler. Wondering how old she is these days? We'd say ageless. Playing the stripper love interest of Mickey Rourke's character, Tomei defies age. 

7. Scarlett Johansson and Bradley Cooper Are Best Friends with Benefits 

There's a lot going on in He's Just Not That Into You, but the scene in which Jennifer Connolly nearly walks in on Johansson's and Cooper's characters in the midst of an adulterous romp is one of the most explicit instances of groping and breast-grabbing we've ever seen. And when Cooper sneaks his mistress into his office closet, we're doubly scandalized. 

8. A Bittersweet Goodbye in Ghosts of Girlfriends Past 

When Jennifer Garner made Matthew McConaughey's hot-shot womanizer wait for sex, their onscreen chemistry sizzled. McConaughey's post-coital sneak-out aside, (leaving Garner feeling betrayed), we couldn't help recall their passion and root for them to get back together. 

9. Betty And Don In Italy On Mad Men 

Betty and Don's short trip to Italy helps them rediscover the passion that must have drawn them together at the beginning of their relationship. Even the build-up is delicious, when Don meets Betty in an outdoor café and pretends not to know her. Makes us want a little vacation sex of our own. Driving The Mad Men Wild

10. Kitchen Sex In Orphan 

We're of two minds about the kitchen sex scene in Orphan. It wasn't traditionally sexy, but it makes this list because it felt more real than most movie sex. Yes, it was awkward, yes it was a little absurd, but that's what sex is like when you have kids but are trying to keep some spontaneity in your love life.
