Just in case your budget won’t allow you out for a fabulous night on the town, here are some sexy-funny-romantic videos fitting for the holiday, but read on and see which category you fit in best.
For the Couple in Love
The Pillow Book (1996) is full of eye candy. The cinematography is stunning and the story is so fresh compared to Hollywood flicks. The female main character is searching for someone who will write on her body. Have you ever seen beautiful Japanese calligraphy on smooth white skin? It’s breathtaking. The Pillow Book is an erotic look at intimacy and sexual pleasure. You don’t even have to read the subtitles, the beauty of the movie is in the visuals. Watch until the end and you’ll understand the movie’s tagline: Things that make your heart beat faster. Stars Vivian Wu and Ewan McGregor.
For the Single Boy
Wild Things (1998) is a racy tale of sex, lies, murder, and double-crossing. It stars Neve Campbell, Denise Richards, Matt Dillon and scores of other gorgeous people. But let’s not beat around the bush: the sex scenes are what make the movie. One is a three-way between Campbell, Richards and Dillon and the other is a lesbian affair in which Campbell and Richards get it on. The saving grace of this movie is that it doesn’t take itself seriously, and it won’t leave those looking for a messageless movie unsatisfied.
For the Single Female
G.I. Jane (1997) is an empowering story about overcoming adversity. Demi Moore is Jordan O’Neil, a navy seal out to prove herself in the male dominated world of the military. As if gaining 20 pounds of muscle wasn’t enough of an undertaking, Moore goes one step further and shaves her head for the role. This definitely gives credibility to her character. The key line of the movie is uttered when Moore is beaten to a pulp by her drill sergeant. When he asks her if she’s had enough, she looks up at him through the blood streaming down her face and replies: “Suck My dick”. And girls everywhere cheer.
For those indifferent to Valentine’s Day
I’m assuming most readers will scan down to this category, so this movie is chosen very carefully. It’s called Black & White (1999). The cast reads like a Hollywood A-list: Robert Downey Jr., Claudia Schiffer, Brooke Shields, Ben Stiller and Mike Tyson. The movie is focused on white people’s fascination with black culture and looks into many areas where black and white cultures collide: sports, gambling, drugs, sex and the rap industry. Raekwon, one of the main characters, makes some interesting confessions about racism. The movie offers mostly glum explanations but is an interesting snapshot of race relations.
