I did it! Halfway through Aa Gale Lag Jaye (which I am loving, Shashi 4Ever), I realized that what we need most is more sex in our lives. And in our movies. So for the next two weeks, sex sex sex. Woo-hoo! Oh, this also means not all your suggestions made the cut, but sex often involves sacrifice.

I love love love this movie. And a large part of that is the matter of fact way it handles sex. You do it, if you are in love it means a lot but not everything. If you aren’t in love, sometimes it doesn’t mean anything at all.

No context, just watch this song and decide if you want to see this movie. Make sure to get all the way through to the twist at the end!

Some of my readers claim this as the best sex scene ever put on film. I don’t know if I would go THAT far, but it is pretty darn good. And I’ll write a new review (oooo!) to go with my existing reviews.

You know what fixes an arranged marriage between strangers who have very little in common? SEX! Okay, and talking and respecting each other and blah blah, boring stuff. But then SEX.

You know what is always great even when you are fighting, but also can’t solve all your problems if you are young and stupid and never talk things out? SEX!

You know what doesn’t make you a broken person unworthy of love, or a satisfying sex life? RAPE! This is a very very odd movie, but also a very very happy movie. No, really. There’s kids, there’s Anil Kapoor, there’s ridiculous plot twists and lots of speeches about how rape survivors aren’t “ruined”. Oh, and the rape scene is handled very delicately, don’t worry, this movie is so light it is basically child-friendly.

Having finally see it, I am 98% sure that Shahrukh and Manisha have sex right after this song. Later in the film, she says that she can recognize him because “after that night in the cave, your fragrance is permanently on my breath”. Right? That’s sex talk? Anyway, you all should watch it on Prime and then hop over to youtube to watch the last 5 minutes that Prime cuts off.

Sexiest sex song EVER! Fully clothed (basically), and they almost don’t touch, let alone kiss or anything. And this is why you should never get caught in the rain with your boyfriend when there is only one hotel room left and it happens to be next to a honeymoon couple singing a love song. Or why you SHOULD get caught in the rain with your boyfriend etc. etc., I don’t know your life goals

I don’t like that this movie has a sex scene. FIGHT ME!

Is Shashi Sex so powerful it drives Amitabh Love right out of your heart? Let’s discuss!

Such a beautiful beautiful movie. And really interesting with how it treats sex. There’s a lot of healthy sex, a young man having wet dreams about his girlfriend, a teenage boy having an honest talk with his older cousin about not being ashamed or afraid of his urges because they are natural and part of being human, and there’s also an increasingly disturbing household where sex is never discussed but always feels present in a way that is kind of unnatural and wrong.

You know why college kids get married way way too young sometimes? SEX! If their parents just let them move in together, they’d have a lot longer to grow up and figure out if they were ready for marriage yet.

Grand finale! Everyone’s favorite romantic sex scene movie! Because y’all are WEIRD!!!!! No one else likes this movie!!!! Why do you like this movie???? Besides rosebuds bathtub sex with a tormented hot dude.
Now, there may be movies out there with sex that I don’t know about. Let me know what I am missing! Obviously we don’t need any of those “oh no, sex has ruined my life in a variety of ways” misery things. But any of the “oh dear, we are young and in love and now we happen to be locked up alone in a room with a bed, what shall we do?” movies, those I want! Especial Tamil/Telugu ones, do people just not have sex in South India? Why am I blanking on movies?
