Clicking and Streaming (and Humping and Moaning): A diverse dozen dirty movies about doin' it to watch this weekend

So, this list contains two trashy early '90s sex noirs, two queer avant-garde classics, and two movies in which women lop the dicks off their dude lovers, so, not bad. Not to mention a polyamorous bank-robber doc, a movie in which two grown-ass women hook up with each other's teenaged sons, and a three-hour, breakup epic that almost spends as much time staring at the snot dripping from one of the leads' noses during a moment of emotional devastation as it does its two leads in the sheets, just to, you know, name a few more. See, we serve up this list just in time for Valentine's Day as an online supplement for our Sex Issue and in the spirit of open-mindedness and containing sexual multitudes. Also, consider it a big throbbing counterpoint to lame "film" website The Dissolve, whose tossed-off "Our Favorite Sex Positive Movies," which appeared online yesterday, was not only half-assed but depressingly conventional and hetero ("straight people would riot if the most action they got to see in the movies was just excruciating sexual tension," Rookie mag writer Suzy X tweeted to us about the inclusion of "Some Like It Hot" on the Dissolve's list). Here, you'll find a fuller spectrum of flicks about fucking. Some might make you cry, some are solid beat-off material, and some are dark explorations of the truly screwed-up gender and power dynamics at play every time we jump in the sack. Happy Valentine's Day, assholes!
