The one in Fatal Attraction's pretty cool.
00:08
Yeah, in the sink, and they turn the water on,
00:10
and things go flying, and everything gets cleared.
00:13
I mean, you know, I don't know,
00:15
I can't remember the 9 1/2 Weeks one,
00:17
I know there was lots of food,
00:18
sort of like a sex food fight,
00:21
but I don't think it quite matches up
00:23
to the Fatal Attraction one.
00:24
That was pretty, like they went for it,
00:26
and hats of to them because knowing how hard it is.
00:30
Like, I don't wanna talk about one of
00:32
those sort of misty sort of lightly blowing curtain,
00:36
you know like the Top Gun sex scene,
00:38
which is all like, you know, we've all had sex,
00:40
it never really goes down that way, does it.
00:43
There's a lot of elbows, and ankles,
00:46
and apologies, and foreheads hitting
00:48
each other and stuff like that.
