We caught up with a few Penn personalities and asked for their favorite sex scenes.
As a fraternity guy, I’d have to say Animal House, 1978. Tim Matheson plays Otter, the Delta Tau Chi Rush Chair and ladies man, who makes it with Dean Wormer’s wife- undoubtedly part of the reason they end up on Double Secret Probation. His grocery store pick up line is legendary; while picking out a cucumber next to her, he quips: “Mine’s bigger than yours”. Great movie.

Obviously, Love and Other Drugs. I don’t really have a favorite sex scene, since the entire movie is soft-core porn — Anne Hathaway and Jake Gyllenhaal (who I want to bone) are both beautiful and naked for literally the entire movie. The two have great chemistry, and their sex is a perfect mix of passionate and rough.

Definitely one of the most memorable sex scene I’ve come across is from the movie Bent starring Clive Owen. The film is about the Nazi persecution of homosexuals, and this scene actually takes place in Dachau (everyone’s favorite sextination). In it, Owen’s character and his lover Rudy, both prisoners at the camp, are standing alone in the work yard, and, in spite of their present circumstances, Rudy apparently starts feeling frisky and begins talking nasty to Owen. Surrounded by Nazi guards, the two obviously can’t look at each other, let alone touch each other, so Owen and Rudy decide to talk their way through a sex session. Whispering lines, like “I’m inside you, can you feel me?,” back and forth, the two orally (pun intended) detail a super hot quickie, the dialogue escalating and escalating until finally the two reach orgasm simultaneously. Weird and a little disturbing, for sure, but all the heavy breathing, phone sex dialogue, and shear ridiculousness make this scene strangley arousing.
