What movies not intended as porn get masturbated to the most?


Recycled from an old discussion on another board about Vidal/Guccione's Caligula, which I recently had occasion to reread. It was being debated what it would take for porn/erotica to cross the line into the mainstream, and someone opined that there's no crossing the gulf between a movie you masturbate to and one you don't. To which someone else claimed that's not necessarily the most reliable rule of thumb.

So can anyone name some possible examples?

Just off the top of my head, I got:

Driving Miss Daisy
Throw Mama From the Train
Cocoon
The English Patient

and, of course,

Top Gun (especially the volleyball scene).

The panty raid in Revenge of the Nerds was pretty hot too.

I think that, as long as we just keep this to a list of titles, this thread can probably remain open and on course. But please, let's not have any details.

Back in the 1980s and 1990s, video store clerks claimed that they had to replace cassettes of Trading Places frequently, because the tape would always get worn out at Jamie Lee Curtis' topless scene.

I remember one guy writing (to Playboy? I don't recall) about how he was turned off by most porn, and what really did it for him were nude scenes like the opening scenes of the original Carrie.

Under the Skin. If this movie has a plot, good luck finding anyone who can tell you what it is.

Following up on The Great Race posts, I’d agree about any movie with great cheesecake.

The 1967 Casino Royale had one of the most amazing lineups of non-bimbo nubiles* ever. Ursula Andress, Deborah Kerr, Joanna Pettet, Dahlia Lavi, Barbara Bouchet, Jacqueline Bisset, plus dozens of uncredited background babes.


* meaning, no idiots. The women were every bit the spies, schemers, and treacherous fuckers as the boys. Dahlia Lavi, by tricking Woody Allen into swallowing the H-Bomb pill, is responsible for blowing everyone up in the final scene, making her essentially the super villain.

Me too. Probably because of the insane cuts.

Also because, like Jonathan Millerís 1966 BBC production of Alice in Wonderland, it spans a majestic decade like a Colossus, one foot in the James Bond/Rat Pack/tuxedoed Early Ď60s, and the other in the acid-swirly/psychedelic/free love Late Ď60s.

PS: Do NOT try to masturbate to Jonathan Millerís Alice in Wonderland. Unless the idea of Leo McKern in drag is a turn-on. (He plays the Duchess)

I'm sure I'm not alone in finding Salma Hayek's scene in 'From Dusk till Dawn' extraordinarily erotic.

oooooooo, yes! Sorry to say she passed away in May, 2017....the last time I looked her up, she was still with us. Born in Israel, made mostly European movies, but weirdly ended up living in Asheville, North Carolina.
