2011 was a bit more tame overall, compared to 2010's super-sexy love scenes in movies like 'Black Swan,' 'Love and Other Drugs' and 'Blue Valentine.' There are some standouts, including Leighton Meester and Danneel Harris' smoking hot makeout session in the horror-thriller 'The Roommate' and pretty much every scene with Michael Fassbender in Steve McQueen's erotic drama 'Shame.' My personal favorite: 'Friends With Benefits.' I thought Mila Kunis and Justin Timberlake had great onscreen chemistry, and this came through loud and clear (so to speak) in the movie's hot love scenes! Don't agree with me? Vote 'Friends With Benefits' down. Think I'm spot on? Vote 'Friends With Benefits' up. Think I'm so far off (third) base by listing the hilariously hot love scene(s) from 'Bridesmaids?' Fine, vote that one down. Everyone gets a say, especially when we're talking about sex and love and all that other good stuff.
Even if the sex wasn't quite as steamy in 2011, moviegoers and TV fans had plenty of great things to watch. Don't believe me? Check out these lists of the New Movie Trailers of 2012 and Best TV Shows as proof. Of course, there were some mega-stinkers too, as highlighted on the list of the worst movies of 2011. Hollywood can't get it right every single time, sadly.
Game of Thrones
"Game of Thrones" goes to show that without the constant distractions that we have today like TV, internet and electricity, there are very few forms of entertainment left. The two most popular seem to have been brutal murder and lots and lots of sex. GoT had more sex scenes than "True Blood", "The Tudors" and "Oz" combined.
'Friends With Benefits' offered up some of the most smoking cinematic sex scenes of 2011. And Mila Kunis, lots of Mila Kunis. The chemistry between Kunis' Jamie and her friend Dylan (Justin Timberlake, and yes he's on this list three times...JT got around in 2011) are very hot and, at times, really funny. Dylan and Jamie make a deal: They'll be friends who have sex, nothing more. And they have a lot of great sex. Though there is a little too much talking for my taste, the banter between the two is funny. My favorite is in the scene above where Dylan tries to break the tension by humming Semi-Sonic's "Closing Time" thinking that it's Third Eye Blind.

Natalie Portman. Sex scenes. Need I say more? Oh, yeah okay, I'll say more. In 'No Strings Attached,' Portman plays a young doctor, Emma, who makes a deal with her good friend, Adam (Ashton Kutcher): a sex-only relationship. No falling in love. Just hot sex, and plenty of it. This movie definitely contains more than it's share of sexy scenes. And Natalie Portman. Enough said.

For a show that is known for it's sex scenes, Californication really pulled it out this year. I had thought that they had hit their peak last season with the smoking hot Eva Amurri but leave it to Showtime to kick it up a notch. This year they introduced Addison Timlin as an actress playing the Madeline Zima character in a movie based on Hank's book. Needless to say, the whole thing made for some of the sexiest scenes in the show's history.
Ah, 'Immortals.' This one's on the list for one reason: Freida Pinto. In the 2011 movie, Pinto who stars as Phaedra, has her first-ever sex scene on film. Her sexy scenes opposite Henry Cavill (Theseus) are definitely hot. Hate to ruin this for you, but the nudity? It's not Pinto. She had a butt double for the film. Boo!
