Science fiction has never been known as a particularly titillating genre. But people in science fiction do get down and dirty (as people are wont to do), and some of those sci-fi sex scenes can get incredibly twisted. We're not just talking about interspecies copulation (though there are plenty of instances of that throughout). No, there's some pretty crazy emotional stuff that goes down in some of these scenes. These go beyond hurt feelings: some of the scenes can get truly insane.
Sure, Star Trek has its share of strange sexual encounters (all of them awkward), but many horror filmmakers use science fiction to explore taboos in ways other genres can't touch. With enough imagination, you can create scenarios that will stay with audiences for decades. Decades. You can probably think of a few right now, but you're about to discover some more examples that will haunt your psyche forever. So, if you ever wanted to see otherworldly sex that involved robots, gene-splicing, inbreeding, and time travel you came to the right place.
From the opening scene to the second the credits roll, this film is essentially one long screwed up illicit adventure. Seriously, basically every major character gets busy with every other major character in every possible combination. Oh, and that’s on top of playing God with a mechanical womb and gene-splicing technology.
See, this young scientist couple creates an animal/human hybrid (ostensibly for medical research, mostly just to see if they can). They begin to raise the creature as their daughter, which makes it super creepy when the male scientist hooks up with her. Remember, she's part-animal.
The craziest part, though? It's eventually revealed that the female scientist used her own DNA to create the hybrid. The creature, previously female, changes genders and proceeds to assaulted its creator. So, yeah, she got assaulted by her own daughter/son/frog monster. And yes, it's just as disturbing as it sounds.
On paper, the plot of Species sounds pretty much exactly like a movie you would find in the adult's only section. It is, however, a big budget Hollywood movie. Basically, the movie is about a female alien/human hybrid who escapes her captors and really wants to mate. Her desire to find a baby daddy leads her to LA, where she seduces a guy and they start going at it in his pool.
When he isn't too thrilled with the idea of having a kid, she forces him into the pool and goes to town on him with tentacles. If you look close, one of those tentacles is actually coming out of her breast. Yikes.

A bizarre sexploitation film starring the incomparable Jane Fonda, Barbarella is about a sexually inexperienced astronaut living in the 41st century. While on a quest, pretty much everyone she comes into contact with is incredibly horny. Also, for some reason, she's into it.
In a film full of crazy moments, the standout has to be when she’s strapped into the “Excessive Machine,” a device which produces climax so strong it kills whoever is inside it. But, of course, Barbarella is so insatiable that she ends up breaking the machine and surviving.

Rygel And John In Farscape's "Won't Get Fooled Again"
While this technically isn’t a full-on intimate moment, it’s frankly too bananas not to discuss. John Crichton, wayward astronaut stuck in deep space, is mentally tortured by an evil race called the Scarrens. They put in him crazier and crazier situations in an effort to drive him insane so his mental defenses will drop.
One of those many visions involves him being handcuffed to a hospital bed where a muppet in bondage gear whips him. So, yeah, that made it on to television. Seriously, this one is either super funny or the most terrifying thing ever done to a human being. One of the two.
