Can Movie Sex Scenes Ever Beat Porn?

Whenever you sit down to watch a film, there is a high chance that you’ll end up watching a steamy sex scene. In fact, I cannot think of any films I have watched recently where there weren’t movie sex scenes! Almost every movie out there at the moment seems to have them, and they give us a kinky little thrill in the middle of a movie.

However, there are some people out there who believe that movie sex scenes are actually becoming better than porn. Here on the Escort Norway blog we aren’t so convinced. We think that porn tends to be a hell of a lot steamier than movie sex scenes… and we take a look at some of the best to find out if we are right.

Why we love porn

Porn is one of our favourites things to talk about and to watch. When you have had a really awful day at work and you need to let off some steam, porn lets you do that. You can escape into a world where the ladies all seem to have huge tits and the men can last for hours and hours on end without needing a break.

Often the people in porn videos have what we imagine to be the perfect bodies. They look stunning, sexy, and simply seeing them on the screen is enough to turn us on.

They also get up to a lot of kinky things in the videos. If we have slightly different tastes, porn videos give us the chance to explore them. We can learn a little more about BDSM, seeing what kind of hot and steamy sex acts turn us on the most.

Most people are very visual when it comes to the things that turn them on. If you are jerking off while thinking of someone, you tend to have a very clear image of them in your mind. Well, porn does it for us. Instead of imagining what might happen, we let the actors do the work for us. This means that we can just sit back, relax, and jerk off without trying to think of the next sexy thing that will happen in our fantasy.

Movies don’t get graphic

One of the reasons that movie sex scenes turn us on so much is that it is famous people we know and love getting it on. Instead of just watching porn stars having sex on the screen, we get to watch our favourite stars doing it instead!

However, one key difference is that, often, there isn’t any real sex going on. It is all staged and made to look as though the couple are having really hot and passionate sex. Through the careful positioning of the actors, it can seem as though she is sitting on his cock, riding him hard, when actually it is all very careful movements.

Lighting and props also come in handy. They often seem to block the shots that we really want to see, or suddenly the lighting will fade to black to prevent us from seeing too much. I don’t know about you, but that can leave me feeling really frustrated when I am enjoying a scene.

Movie sex scenes avoid niches

There are also a number of things that we tend not to see in movie sex scenes. For example, BDSM rarely appears, and when it does, it is hardly ever accurate. Remember seeing the awful way that the Fifty Shades series showed it? Yeah, movies tend to get sex wrong a hell of a lot of the time.

In the movies, people only seem to be able to have vanilla sex. Sure, they might spice things up by fucking against a wall or on a desk, but it tends to all be the same kind of stuff that we see.

Man and woman meet, man and woman fuck with the covers over them. Things like oral, BDSM, or even gay or lesbian sex tend not to appear that much. In movie sex scenes… which is why we believe that they just don’t beat porn.

The exceptions

Of course, there are a few exceptions to the rule. Lars von Trier’s Nymphomaniac features a lot of detailed and graphic sex scenes… to the point where you actually see Shia’s LaBeouf’s hard cock sliding inside of someone. Okay, so that should be expected given the title of the film, but it was still a shock for many!

There is also the above scene from the Deadpool film. In it you see two of the main actors from the film having a lot of unusual sex. Sure, it isn’t very detailed or graphic, but we can see Ryan Reynold’s character being pegged, there is oral sex on the woman, and there is even a little foodplay thrown in. It might not be much… but it is a start.
