Fire.
Comments

They can be funny, they can be intense, they can be romantic. They can involve puppets, or multiple people, or pools. Cinema has been around for more than a century, and in that time, it has produced some truly insane sex scenes, many of which include Tom Cruise or Patrick Swayze, for no particular reason. Here, a few that out-crazy the rest.

SUPERBAD

Released: 2007
