Mistress Maeve

Dear Mistress Maeve,

Last month, my wife and I had some of the best sex we'd ever had after watching 9 1/2 Weeks with Mickey Rourke and Kim Basinger. I want to keep this streak going! Mistress, can you recommend a few other movie titles that will keep my home theater burning?


Movie Man


Dear Movie Man,

Forget this summer's blockbusters - rent these top five scorching titles and keep your popcorn poppin' at home:

5. A History of Violence (2005)

Viggo Mortensen and Maria Bello channel their family's drama into outrageously hot sex on the staircase, leaving Bello's character with some stellar "stair burn." This somewhat violent scene happens shortly after a more innocent romp where Bello dons a high school cheerleading uniform.

4. Coming Home (1978)

Jane Fonda and Jon Voight both won Oscars for their performances in this drama about a married woman who falls for a paraplegic Vietnam vet. When Voight's character cannot perform intercourse, he satisfies Fonda's character orally - a very steamy and emotionally convincing scene.

3. Brokeback Mountain (2005)

I don't care which orientation you are - watching Heath Ledger and Jake Gyllenhaal play cowboys who confess their love and lust for each other is damn sexy. When they finally give in, Jack (Gyllenhaal) makes a pass at Ennis (Ledger) while the two are huddled together in a tent for warmth. Ennis' initial anger quickly turns into powerful, urgent love-making.

2. In the Cut (2003)

While I'm pretty sure this sexually charged thriller didn't win any Oscars, Meg Ryan and Mark Ruffalo steam up the screen. If you're looking to introduce dirty talk into your bedroom repertoire, you won't want to miss their naughty phone sex. Let's just say Ruffalo can call me anytime.

1. Secretary (2002)

Another Gyllenhaal tops my list with this quirky film about a woman (Maggie Gyllenhaal) who takes a job as a secretary for a hard-to-please lawyer (James Spader). Eventually, Spader's character gives in to his innermost sadomasochistic desires, and an all-too-eager Gyllenhaal is happy to bend over and oblige.

It was truly difficult to pick just five! Deserving honorable mentions are Shortbus, Bound, Wild Things and Basic Instinct (not for the infamous Sharon Stone crotch shot, but for the yummy scene between Michael Douglas and Jeanne Tripplehorn).

Happy viewing,
