Fictional romances have been the inspiration for many bedroom romps. From Pretty Woman to Pride and Prejudice, we can help but envy the passion and courage that is displayed between these lovers. If you’re looking to spice up your sex life, look no further than your TV screen or bookshelf. Here are five hot sex scenes we want to recreate from our favourite books and movies.
It’s hard to think of the movie The Notebook without picturing that incredibly romantic rain scene. The next time you and your man get caught in a downpour, don’t run for the door. Instead, take advantage of the situation and get busy instead.
A family vacation takes an unexpected turn when Baby falls in love with Johnny, the resort’s dance instructor. They are brought together through dance, but since they come from different worlds, their love is forbidden. When Baby stands up to her dad, sneaks out of her cabin and surprises Johnny in the middle of the night with an impromptu dance, their relationship escalates to the next level. While planning a dance for your boyfriend might feel forced, aim for Baby’s spontaneity the next time you want to bring some fun to the bedroom and we promise your man will love it.
Fifty Shades of Grey
Choosing just one sex scene we want to recreate from this steamy book is impossible. When innocent Anastatia meets S&M loving Christian, her life is forever changed. If you want to add some scandal into your own bedroom, head to your local sex shop and pick up a riding crop and a pair of handcuffs.
Canada’s version of 50 Shades of Grey, the S.E.C.R.E.T. novels focus on an underground society that helps women live out their sexual fantasies in a safe environment. We couldn’t help but be jealous when Cassie lives out one of her fantasies at a rooftop jazz show. Even if you aren’t quite as bold as Cassie, you can still take some cues from the book. Have you and your partner each write down your top five sexual fantasies, each one on a different piece of paper. Place all of the pieces in a jar and choose a new one each time you want to spice up your love life.
Are you a book lover? If so, you’ve probably dreamed of getting down and dirty in a library. We can’t help but lust after the steamy bookcase session between Keira Knightley and James McAvoy in Atonement. If you and your man are up for a little public indiscretion, find a quiet corner in your local library. If you’re shyer, a bookcase at home will work too.
