Not to be confused with movies featuring unsimulated sex scenes or movies with an abundance of male nuditythis article is about a special category of film: movies about doing it. This unsung genre runs the gamut from drama, to comedy, to porn disguised as mainstream looking at you, 9 Songs. But one thing they all have in common is sex.
When year-old Andy Carell admits he's never done the deed, his work buddies Rudd, Malco, Seth Rogen resolve to help him lose his cherry at the first available opportunity. But Andy is setting his sights higher than sex for its own sake: Andy is falling in love with divorced mother-of-three Trish Keener and is prepared to do whatever it takes to woo her - even if that means agreeing to Trish's suggestion that they abstain from sex for at least 20 dates. The Year-Old Virgin isn't the kind of crude, gross-out romantic comedy you might expect from its unfortunate title, although the humour is of the broad, slapstick variety and features plenty of funny frat-boy gags.

The sexual exploits of Star Wars hero Luke Skywalker have not been a huge concern for me as a fan, but I'll be honest in saying, that it has indeed been something that has crossed my mind.
