9 Sex Scenes That Are Too Hilarious To Be Sexy & Probably Shouldn't Be Attempted At Home — VIDEOS

When it comes to movies, love scenes often represent the, uh, climactic point in the plot. There's no shortage of steamy sex scenes on TV, but, unfortunately, over the years, the cinema has given us some less-than-poignant sex scenes. In fact, some of them are straight up hilarious. I appreciate that Hollywood is trying to keep things fresh. It's fair to say we've never seen a love scene with quite the dramatics that were present on Bella Swan and Edward Cullen's wedding night in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 2. On the other hand, there have also been some seriously awkward moments written into these scenes. (I'm looking at you, Isla Fischer in Wedding Crashers.)

All of the humor, and sometimes discomfort, in these scenes remind us of one thing. IRL, the act itself can be exactly like that. (Unfortunately, it can't always be a steamy hookup in the backseat of a 1912 Renault Type CB Coupe de Ville, which happens to be stored in the cargo hold of an ill-fated ship. But a girl can dream.) 

Let's lift a glass to those sex scenes which are too LOL-worthy to be sexy. I've listed nine of the best ones below.

Wedding Crashers (2005)

Thanks to Isla Fischer, the phrase "stage 5 clinger" went mainstream. It's this scene that proves how truly awkward love scenes can be.

When Bella and Edward finally consummated their relationship, the couple gave fans what they waited five movies to see: a bedroom destroyed by passion.

Forgetting Sarah Marshall (2008)

Because nothing says romantic like trying to compete with your ex.

40 Days and 40 Nights (2002)

The most memorable part of 40 Days and 40 Nights, aside from the belief that one can find love in a laundromat, is this awkward flower scene.

Gigli (2003)

Note to self. Don't begin seduction with the phrase "It's turkey time."

Easy A (2010)

Okay, so technically there was no actually sex. But I give Emma Stone an "A" for enthusiasm. (Pun intended.)

Anchorman (2004)

Because no one does any scene — intimate or otherwise — quite as funny as Will Ferrell.

Bridesmaids (2011)

Allow Jon Hamm and Kristen Wiig to emphasize the importance of communication.

Love Actually (2003)

Colin Frissell proved haters wrong when he went to America to score and ended up in the most hilariously cliched love scene ever. All I can say about these "steamy" moments is, well, please don't try this at home — unless, of course, you and your partner want to watch them for a good laugh.
