Top Black Movie Sex Scenes
See if your favorite movie made the cut.
Baby, it's cold outside. And if you're like me and boo-less this winter, you probably spend a lot time with bad reality TV and Netflix.You, boo'd up people, don't judge!
Anyway, I've gathered a list of steamy sex scenes from ten excellent-to-pretty-good movies starring some of the hottest Black actors and actresses in Hollywood.
So grab a blanket, your favorite sofa snack and curl up with some sweet dream fodder. Let me know what I missed.
Set It Off (1996)
So, I’ll admit bias here, I’ve had a crush on Blair Underwood since I was like 6 or 7 years old. And though I’m sure I wasn’t supposed to see this, I certainly witnessed his moment with Sheila E. in Krush Groove circa 1985, where he took off his gold chain and used it as an instrument of seduction. The image was still burned in my mind when he did the same with to Jada Pinkett-Smith during their romantic interlude in front of the fire while EnVogue sang, “What’s it gonna be? Cuz I can’t pretend. Don’t you wanna be, more than friends?" Yes, I do!
Jason’s Lyric (1994)
It’s not the scene you’re thinking of, you know the one in the field by the bayou with the close up of Allen Payne’s furry behind. I’m talking about that late night insistent situation that happened on the cash register of the appliance store where Payne’s character Jason worked. The blend of oppressive Texas summer heat, mixed with a hungry urgency and some major chemistry was H-O-T.
Love Jones (1997)
Hands down, this is one of the sexiest films ever, I saw it at least four times at the theater.
And the scene in which Nina (Nia Long) and Darius (Larenz Tate) make love for the first time is damn near perfect.
Two attractive people, moving in tandem, with cutaways that leave just enough to the imagination as Maxwell plays in the background. C'est magnifique.
School Daze (1988)
Dean Big Brother Almighty (Giancarlo Esposito) and his lady Jane (Tisha Campbell) get it in after the homecoming coronation at the fictional Mission College. Peeling off their black and silver in the “Bone Room” of the Gamma house, licking fraternity brands and hair parts, gripping sheets—it was so steamy, you might sweat your hair out just watching.
Do The Right Thing (1989)
Anyone that has ever experienced New York City summer humidity without air conditioning not only understands but has lusted for someone to run ice cubes all over their bodies like Mookie (Spike Lee) did Tina (Rosie Perez) on his break from delivering pizzas in Bed Stuy, Brooklyn. It was sweet, sexy and both literally and figuratively, so very cool.
Devil In A Blue Dress (1995)
Talk about scandalous, Coretta James (Lisa Nicole Carson) and Ezekiel “Easy” Rawlins make quite a raucous sexing on the sofa while Coretta’s man sleeps in the other room. Sweat, mixed with danger, Denzel’s begging, Carson’s ample bosom and her panting chant, “you hitting my spot,” makes this scene one for the reference books.
“Who’s the black private dick that’s a sex machine to all the chicks? Shaft! Damn, right.”
The first black action hero from Harlem who fought the mob and sexed up all the ladies everywhere all directed by Gordon Parks.
This film is bad mutha…shut your mouth!
DMX and Taral Hicks as Tommy and Keisha in video director Hype Williams’ first feature film, exemplified ghetto love at its best. And when Williams showed their passionate agressive lovemaking juxtaposed against the gentle caresses of Sincere (Nas) and his girl Tionne (T-Boz ) he forced you to choose your scenario. Admit it, you know you were feeling all that growling?
Mo Betta Blues (1990)
Tethered to a Harlem terrace while a young, fit and fine Wesley Snipes uses his imagination and shows off his naked rear end while supplying Cynda Williams’ character Clarke with seemingly endless love. Can you say, risqué? It’s no wonder, with all the sex that goes down in this movie, this scene is the tops—so much so, that I didn’t even mention the lead, Bleek, played by none other than the Father of Fineness, Denzel Washington and at his peak!
Miami Vice (2006)
Oh, that Colin Farrell, when he brings that chick to tears—that’s another list for another time.
Jamie Foxx, yes I said it, perfectly brown in the shower, in the bed, making jokes in between got me all excited and sitting straight up in my seat at the theater.
Baby Boy (2001)
Who could argue with seeing a half-naked Tyrese on the big screen? And apparently his character Jody put it down on his baby’s momma, Yvette (Taraji P. Henson) so swell, that she got up, cleaned the house and made tacos. But the reason this John Singleton hood classic gets only a mention, is that the sex in this film was usually only after some verbal or physical altercation. A little too dysfunctional for my taste. I wasn’t mad at that “squat” situation Ving Rhames and AJ Johnson though.
