Seven of the Most Memorable Lesbian Kisses in Cinema History
Let’s admit it — whether a movie simply features a quick kiss or full girl on girl action, nothing makes a film become more interesting more quickly than a lesbian scene. In honor of the historic Gay Marriage ruling today, we thought we would take a look at some of our favorites… respectfully of course. The following seven scenes capture our attention every single time, and they make their respective movies worth owning.
- 7. Gia
When Angelina Jolie kisses another woman on-screen, it makes everyone in the theater pay attention. Her onscreen romance with Elizabeth Mitchell's character included several extremely memorable kisses and sex scenes, making Gia a classic for those who prefer a little girl on girl action in their viewing material.
- 6. Bound
Starring Gina Gerhson and Jennifer Tilly, Bound was one of the first somewhat mainstream films to focus on a lesbian relationship. There are several kissing scenes that are worth watching. As an added bonus, if you pick up the unrated version you can also enjoy an extremely realistic sex scene between the two women in all of its uncut glory.
- 5. Wild Things
The steamy pool scene between the characters portrayed by Neve Campbell and Denise Richards not only featured an impressively long make-out session, but it also showcased two gorgeous women taking their tops off. Although we are not treated to a direct viewing of their breasts during this scene, the side shots make the kiss even more exciting than it already would have been.
- 4. Soul Survivors
Eliza Dushku's unexpected same-sex kiss in Soul Survivors is one of the only redeeming qualities of the entire movie. Dushku's character not only locks lips with another women, but she also rips open actress Angela Featherstone's shirt and grabs her breasts while the two of them are making out. Dushku also teased us with another near same-sex kiss in the movie Sex and Breakfast.
- 3. Embrace of the Vampire
Alyssa Milano has ignited fantasies for decades, and her on-screen lesbian kiss is the stuff that dreams are made of. Embrace of the Vampire may not be a great vampire movie or a great movie in general, but it features a steamy scene in which Milano locks lips with another girl, making it a must-see for anyone who enjoys watching a good lesbian kiss.
- 2. Cruel Intentions
The scene in Cruel Intentions when Sarah Michelle Gellar's character teaches Selma Blair's character how to kiss was by far the most interesting aspect of a movie that was already interesting to begin with. The saliva trail that is left hanging between their lips was all the proof viewers needed that they actually french kissed, and that alone makes this one of the best lesbian moments in a mainstream film.
- 1. Black Swan
Sweet little Natalie Portman was all grown-up in Darren Aronofsky's Black Swan. So grown-up that she swapped saliva with Mila Kunis in one of the hottest lesbian scenes ever put to film. Portman's uninhibited performance earned her an Oscar for Best Actress, and admiration from guys across the globe who had been waiting for her to drop the innocent routine and get a little dirty.
Each of these movies delivers the goods, as do dozens of other titles that do everything from tease us to give us exactly what we are looking for. The best part is that most of these scenes occur during movies that our girlfriends are interested in, allowing us to have the best of both worlds.
