10 Most Awkward Sex Scenes in Movies That'll Have You Cringing

Sex always has its moments of awkwardness.

Even the hottest love making sessions aren't immune to an embarrassing fumble or two. It happens to the best of us. We all have at least one mortifying story that comes to mind when we even think about it.

No matter how weird one of your romps in the hay got, we bet it doesn't even come close to these most awkward sex scenes in movies. Scroll below and get ready to laugh your head off. Yes, both of them.

Howard the Duck

Boy, the '80s were a bizarre time. The weirdest part was definitely the film Howard the Duck and the sex scene between an alien duck being and Lea Thompson that never happened. We'll never forget that scene, no matter how hard we try.


Poor McLovin. All he wanted was to lose his virginity. And he was so close, until the cops came and ruined everything for him. It's really the aftermath that is the most awkward part, not the sex itself. Still, it's never fun to be caught mid penetration.

Demolition Man

In this film, you have sex through Vr. It's really not that far off from now and kind of smart, as it prevents the risk of disease and pregnancy, but god how awful would that be? Sandra Bullock was at least able to salvage her career after this stinker of a film, and that's really all that matters.


The most cringe-worthy part of the whole opening scene is when he tells her to leave. No one wants to be told that, especially not after making love with someone you're interested in. God, Jon Hamm!

Bad Teacher

Why penetrate someone when you can have a little hump session with all your clothes on? We thought Justin Timberlake brought sex back, but he must've lost it or forgot about it when filming this scene.


That whining sound Will Forte makes when having sex is so unbelievably ridiculous, yet it somehow works. There are also are a few sex scenes in this flick that make us fairly uncomfortable whenever we watch it, which is not often.

The Naked Gun: From the Files of Police Squad!

The world would be a much safer place if we wrapped our entire bodies in rubbers before fornicating with whomever we want.

Knocked Up

Pregnancy sex isn't at all sexy, but watching Katherine Heigl and Seth Rogen try to go at it in a way that won't "poke the baby" is laugh out loud comical.

American Pie

Ah, a classic. Who hasn't had their dad walk in on them while banging an apple pie? You haven't? Oh, weird.

The 40-Year-Old Virgin

Does it get more awkward than a 40-year-old virgin pretending he knows what to do in the bedroom? That lower lip bite still causes us pain, too.
