Anyone who’s ever had access to an unfortunately placed mirror will know that sex rarely looks good. But you would think Hollywood might be able to make it appear so. Actors are hot. Editing means no awkward position reshuffles. Cinematographers make lighting soft and flattering.

But so often it feels as though the makers of MILF and “I’ve been a bad girl” cheerleader porn provide a more nuanced presentation of sex than some of the most talented directors out there.

To make you feel better about your presumably non-existent sex life coming out of lockdown, here’s a list of truly awful cinema sex.

From cliched lines to overexaggerated cum faces, these sex scenes will make you want to leave the room, and not just because your parents are sat next to you on the sofa.

Click though to see which scenes made the list.
