The use of nudity and sex scenes in American cinema dates back to the late 1800s and early 1900s, when movies still ran reel-by-reel or were silent films composed of still-frame shots and dramatic piano music.
I'm sure everyone has seen at least one movie that they probably don't even remember the main plot line, but will always remember that good/bad/awkward sex scene. Or wanting to watch those scenes your parents had to cover your eyes for--you just had to go back and re-watch them to see what the fuss was. Being that so many of my friends are movie buffs and Cinema Studies majors, I have watched scenes that have either made me want to jump the main character's bones or clean my eyes out with soap.
