Podcast: Annette / Top 3 Sex Scenes in Film – Episode 444

This week’s episode is brought to you by the InSession Film Store. Get your ISF gear today!

This week on the InSession Film Podcast, Jay fills in for Brendan as we discuss Leos Carax’s latest film Annette and we also discuss our Top 3 sex scenes in film!

A huge thanks to Jay for filling in this week as co-host. The last time JD and Jay shared the stage it led to one of our most infamous reviews, but this time we decided to play nice. So much so that our discussion of Annette resonated even further the more we talked about it. Additionally, this episode marks a first for the InSession Film Podcast. Until now, we’ve never had a dedicated segment to sex scenes in film, and after seeing Annette, we felt it was time.

On that note, check out this week’s show and let us know what you think in the comment section. Thanks for listening and for supporting the InSession Film Podcast!

Top 3 Sex Scenes in Film (1:23:10)
As noted above, this is a significant moment for the podcast. It took 444 episodes, but we finally took the plunge to talk about the effect sex scenes can have in a film. Some would argue their futility, but we think they often add great value to characterization and overall allure. Perhaps some sex scenes are for pure pleasure or levity, however there are countless others necessary for character nuance and emotional heft. Sex is a vital part of human nature and it belongs in film. So, without shame, we talk about our favorite sex scenes from film over the decades. That said, what would be your top 3?
