Contemporary Erotica

Whist the most explicit sex scenes are often the least erotic, many filmmakers have used ever-loosening censorial standards to excellent effect, giving us the taboo-shattering Last Tango in Paris (1973), Michael Winterbottom's provocative 9 Songs (2004) and Shortbus (2006), a colourful kaleidoscope of sex, music and art. And if you are looking for a good time, pretty much anything by Tinto Brass, the Godfather of Erotica, is bound to raise a smile.
