When it comes to lust on the big screen (and in life) if you’ve seen one sex scene you’ve seen ‘em all. That’s why the take your breath away moments that are burnt into our brains have nothing to do with sex and everything to do with seduction.
Here are a few of my favorite big screen seduction scenes…
This one is by far head and shoulders above the rest. Robert Redford (Denys Finch Hatton) washing Meryl Streep’s hair (Karen Blixen) while on safari in Out of Africa. The tender attention he lavishes upon her tresses gives new meaning to the phrase a “good hair day.”
There’s more than coffee brewing in the kitchen with Clint Eastwood (Robert Kincaid) slow dancing with Meryl Streep (Francesca) in Bridges of Madison County.
Is he or isn’t he? One wonders just exactly what Kevin Costner (Crash Davis) is doing to the bed bound Susan Sarandon (Annie Savoy) as she writhes with pleasure. As the camera pulls away we see him painting her toe nails red. That’s the real scene stealer in Bull Durham.
Got a light? It’s just one of the famous cigarettes scenes, in Now Voyager as Paul Henreid (Jeramiah Durrance) lights two cigarettes and with an elegant turn of his wrist suggestively places one in Bette Davis’s (Charlotte Vale) lips.
1) If seduction is an art, consider this a canvas and yourself the artist. Paint us a picture of the most seductive thing you’ve ever done or said that has yielded the desired results.
2) Or if you have been on the receiving end of such attentions tells us about that too. What was the most seductive moment you’ve experienced at the hands of your lover?
