If your relationship was a film, would it be more like a heart-warming comedy or a nail biting thriller? And if your sex life was a movie, which one might encompass the between-the-sheets chemistry that only you and your significant other have together?
In a new BuzzFeed video, couples are asked to figure out which cinematic release embodies the ins and outs of their sex lives, and the answers are as varied as the couples themselves. From action-packed, interstellar adventures to steamy, sensual romps, it's very telling what folks choose to use as their erotic film metaphors.
For me, the choice was easy. My current sex life is very Gremlins — don't get us wet or we'll go wild. By day we can be cute, cuddly Gizmos, but by night we lay waste to everything we touch, could always go for a post-sex snack, and are a little bit slutty and creepy. That said, on calmer days, we're probably more like Milo and Otis (the adorable dog and cat movie about interspecies BFFs who are on a serious mission.)
But enough about me, here's six couples who compared their sex lives to a movie — and the reasons why:
1. Mission Impossible
These two are always on the run, trying to wrangle their kids to make sure they can get a piece of the action.
2. Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon
This duo was a little coy about the implications of their film choice, but it might have to do with the positions they prefer during sex...
With one half of the couple a "Johnny Depp-esque looking character," plus "lots of lust" in the bedroom, this film choice seems to be a perfect fit — although both parties should probably watch it first.
4. Harry Potter
"Because our sex life is very magical!"
This pair has a sex life that's apparently uniquely weird and set to the strains of Danny Elfman's music.
The title says it all.
