Intro:

Since the end of the 1960s, sexual liberation showed it's face in many movies that are not actual porn. Some of these productions have bizarre settings or scenes, a few people would sure deny to watch. But even highly acclaimed directors made movies with a sexual context which are able to confuse the audience. Please notice: This is not centered on LGBTQ... It's more about the often bizarre, but artful filming of sexuality.Which of these movies with bizarre sex scenes or sequences would you most likely try to watch? (If you have already seen it, which one is your favorite?) Discuss here.

Basic Rules (enhanceable):

This is not only about sex scenes or sequences. The content should be depicted in a bizarre way or context. No movies rated below 5.5/10. No animes, but other animated movies. This is not about LGBTQ...xzy bashing.

Edited the Intro a little:
"Which of these movies contains the most bizarre sex scene? (If you haven't seen one of it, which of these movies would you most likely try?)"

Thank you for suggesting. But ...
... no, because none of the scenes in any movie of Lars von Trier is a consequence of sexual liberation, the sex scenes he puts in are just a consequence of the psychological deceases of the characters he uses. It has clearly nothing in it like a consequence of sexual liberation the Hippies proclaimed in the late 1960s.

I ver much second Crash (1996). Many David Cronenberg movies are eligible, but this one is unique even for him.

You should specify for A Clockwork Orange that you're referring to the William Tell's Overture scene... in fact, when it comes to these polls, you've got to describe the scene (without graphic details)... it's not just about the fact that voters will know but you can grab the curiosity of those who don't...

That's what I had in mind. Surely not the rape or the murder scenes. maybe the ending scene when Alex is back again and "reputated".

Breu, you're probably confusing Crash 2004 with David Cronenberg's totally bizarre Crash, where almost the whole plot revolves around the strange sexual fetishes of his characters, such as the excitement of having sex in cars and in fact there is a scene between James Spader and Rossane Arquette that can become intolerant.

Sorry, rocky.
I meant the same like you but clicked the wrong. I corrected it. Didn't really want to take the remake. ;)

A Clockwork Orange. Nothing won't ever be as weird as this movie. It even got banned in UK for decades.

Ok, guys. Sorry for answering so late. I'm still in a late phase of renovating our flat. I've got terrible cuts in my life and it will last until the end of next week.

I'm willing to put the suggestions you made on the list. It would be nice, if you gave me a describing line of the scene you like to mention. When it comes to a movie like 'Spun', which I haven't seen, or the mentioned 'Crash' (1996, I didn't see it either), it's more easy for me to present a description. Because it's more easy to describe a scene, when I can connect it in view to the whole story.

'Crash' ... what should I say? These are really sick people. I was tempted to throw it out of the player, because how can someone involve somebody else into an instant car crash? What grown ups do in common for their enlightment, is the one thing. But involving other people from the street is another thing. But I guess I got Cronenberg right, when I understand his movie as a satire on people in general, who fall into decadence beyond any measure. So it's ok, when it's on the list. It's more like a critic on free sex. Why not? I'm not prude, but sure also no censor.

'Monster's Ball' ... Nice movie. I like the drama. And the middle part. Never saw Mrs. Berry in another role like that. The conclusion was the best, the most fitting end! That sure stays on the list.

Breumaster, I'd say Cronenberg's movies are never that simple to be just literal: there's always an additional layer to it, no matter if the movie is dream-like and surreal like some of his earlier works or flashed-out and realistic like some of the more recent. I always perceived Crash (1996) as more of a dream-like movie, to be honest: it's a powerful message of people repressing their feelings and emotions to such a level that a literal car crash is required to get them out. An extreme measure for extreme boredom and lack of proper way to feel. Movie feels like something you might have a dream about but can't just shrug off and can't help but at least think about doing something like that. 

Oh and I removed your duplicate comment. ;)

I copied a description there: ''A man pulls a woman's pants down and, without having advised the actress what was to happen, shoves a stick of butter onto/into her rectum (shown only from the side, at a distance) to prepare her for anal sex. The simulated sexual act is shown with the man remaining fully clothed throughout.''

I just checked it on the database, but is this true? Were there any accusations about? I wonder that it is FSK16 in G, if that rumors fit. Did the actress comment anything about it?

Just read some newspapers on google news. It's actually true. I'm sorry about that. I will kick it from the list. Thank you for telling me, cinephile.

The actress commented about the scene: “I was so angry,” she said. “I felt humiliated and to be honest, I felt a little raped, both by Marlon and by Bertolucci.”

Hello, albstein. I lost the line. Maybe it's better to completely reformulate the description. Would you help me? How would you describe the scene? I still got only fragments coming up.

You took my original description, which I edited afterward. It's this one:

A man shrunken to a tiny size strokes the breasts of a regular-sized woman. He proceeds to climb into her... nether regions, to her delight. All of it filmed in a mock silent movie way.
