The narrative comes to a screeching halt, takes a sharp right-angle-turn and treats us to two of the characters having sex. Apparently the romantic subplot has not received a satisfactory conclusion as of yet and what better way to clean up that loose end than with an extended sex scene?

*''WesternAnimation/TheModifyers'': The unofficial parody is a 7min. short, 5 of which, are simply [[BigBadWannabe Baron Vain]] screwing [[PerkyGoth Lacey Shadows]] every way imaginable.

Depending on the venue, the sudden appearance of a sex scene can be controversial. Video game fandom, for example, is split between those who feel sex scenes give a more cinematic feel to a game and those who feel it's an unnecessary distraction from gameplay. The widespread use of "coitus ensues" in TV series has reached the extent where nearly every original scripted series made for cable, streaming or the BBC that isn't clearly made for children seems to have at least one such scene per episode these days, especially as actual nudity is not a prerequisite. This last point has come into play in recent years as sex scenes have started to appear more frequently in PG-13 rated productions (where as long as there's no nudity anything is fair game) and even the occasional film or TV show that is promoted as being family or YA dramas.

The widespread use of "coitus ensues" in TV series has reached the extent where nearly every original scripted series made for cable, streaming or streaming, the BBC and some Australian networks that isn't clearly made for children seems to have at least one such scene per episode these days, especially as actual nudity is not a prerequisite.

* ''Film/{{Watchmen}}'' has a very long, awkward scene of Dan and Laurie having sex. This was another case of "why did this have to be in the movie", as this was only dealt with briefly in the graphic novel, and the movie was already quite long even without it.

* ''Film/{{Watchmen}}'' has a very long, awkward scene of Dan and Laurie having sex. This was another case of "why did this have to be in the movie", as this was only dealt with briefly in the graphic novel, and the movie was already quite long even without it. It has been argued that the scene might be considered a response to the sexualization of superhero characters and a counterpoint to another scene where Laurie's mother is nearly raped by a fellow superhero; others argue its only purpose is the justify the SomethingElseAlsoRises gag that ends the sequence.



* Averted by most ''Film/JamesBond'' movies. While 007 certainly has bedded a lot of women in his nearly two dozen films, the scenes always cut to something else before things get steamy. In fact, the only explicit sex scene ever shown is in ''Film/GoldenEye'' between [[TheDragon Xenia]] and the poor Canadian admiral. But even then, she's inexplicably fully clothed (to avoid an "R" rating most likely), and the scene is shown because it's plot-relevant: she murders him during the act while an accomplice steals his ID. Even ''Film/{{Spectre}}'', produced after "coitus ensues" became obligatory in many film and TV productions, the director chose to fade to black instead of spending screen time (during what was already the longest Bond film ever) giving viewers anatomy lessons.
* ''Film/MonstersBall'' has this with its infamous sex scene. Not only does it add nothing to the story, but many viewers could have happily lived their lives without ever seeing [[FanDisservice Billy-Bob Thornton's pasty, bony ass]]. This is an example of how a sex scene can overshadow a film. Despite the movie getting generally rave reviews and Halle Berry winning ''an Oscar'' for her performance, try finding anyone who actually can tell you what the movie was actually about. The sex scene, though, they know.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/BlueIsTheWarmestColour'' is about a sexual relationship between two young women. As a Euro film, sex scenes are to be expected, even explicit ones, but the film's showpiece sex scene goes on for so long - longer, in fact, than many sex scenes produced for porn - that it crosses the line to gratuitous and unintentionally funny (not to mention attracting criticism from real-life lesbians who claimed it perpetuated stereotypes about aspects about lesbian sexuality). And, much like ''Monster's Ball'', few filmgoers remember the rest of the (quite long) movie. The original graphic novel, meanwhile, manages to get the job done in just a page.

* ''Everything the Light Touches'' (or The Lion King 2 1/2) is made of ''nothing but this''. The sole purpose of the fanfic is for Lion King characters to have sex in every character-on-character combination conceivable with very little plot, and still bills itself as a "followup" to ''WesternAnimation/The Lion King II: Simba's Pride''. Numerous OCs are included as the story progresses, making room for even more messy scenarios. If you're a dedicated fan of the franchise or its characters, this could very well be one of the most horrifying fanfics you can ever come across for its levels of pure squick.

* [[DeconstructedTrope Deconstructed]] in ''TheDifferenceEngine''.

Mallory even abandons his ally Ebenezer Fraser, who had earlier been injured trying to help contain an outbreak of robberies, in order to satisfy his urges. But when Mallory exits Hetty's apartment, [[spoiler:he finds that the rioting, pollution, and the "Great Stink" that had been plaguing London during his tenure as the viewpoint character have all of a sudden reached nearly apocalyptic levels of awfulness.

* It's pretty likely that there's a line in Orlando Bloom's contract for ''Film/KingdomOfHeaven'' that states that he gets to have a sex scene with the female lead, no matter how completely ridiculous it is in the context of the plot.
** In the extended directors cut of the Film (which actually adds a plot compared the theatrical release) their affair makes quite a bit more sense and provides subtext for the end scene.

* ''Film/UnderworldEvolution'' has an awkward sex scene not too far into the movie immediately after the two characters meet the ''BigBad''.
** Since ''Evolution'' is an immediate sequel (it literally takes place hours after the original ends), it could be argued that it's a culmination of the first film's UnresolvedSexualTension brought on by the emotional stress of the events around them.

** ''Film/HalloweenIVTheReturnOfMichaelMyers'' has Brady deciding to cheat on Rachel with Claire. Of course they're interrupted before they can get very far but still...



* ''Film/TheDarkKnightRises'' has Bruce get at it with Miranda Tate, in basically their second scene together. For him, he has the excuse of having not dated anybody or left his mansion for the past eight years, but there's little reason given for why she's suddenly interested in him, especially [[spoiler:after it's revealed that she's Talia al Ghul and hates him for killing her father]]. Maybe somebody remembered that they had a romance in the comics and just threw it in, despite her rather different characterization here.

** Also happens in ''Literature/TheMist''. Midway through the story, David and Amanda, who are both married, have sex. As with the ''Literature/{{IT}}'' example, it's something of a BigLippedAlligatorMoment, so much so that Frank Darabont chose to leave it out of the film version. Even King himself has said he had misgivings about that scene.
