Cunnilingus Scenes in Mainstream Films

Plenty of mainstream films have featured cunnilingus scenes. Many of them aren't that explicit, but if you're keen to see well known stars going down, here's the ultimate list!

Monsters Ball
Halle Berry received the Best Actress Oscar for her performance in this film. At the end, Billy Bob Thornton responds to her request to "Give Me Pleasure". Read more about this scene below.

Better Than Sex
An Australian film with a very amusing and realistic cunnilingus scene. David Wenham goes down on Susie Porter, while we hear her thoughts about it. Read more about this scene below.

Chasing Amy
This film only talks about cunnilingus, but it's well worth the hiring fee to hear lesbian Alyssa comparing notes with Banky about oral sex with women. Read more about this scene below.

Holy Smoke
Kate Winslet takes sexual control over Harvey Keitel and makes him give her oral sex.

American Pie
Well-known teen sex comedy sees plenty of sexual situations, and one amusing cunnilingus scene where the protagonist follows instructions written in a secret book while going down on his girlfriend.

Don't Look Now
Apparently this was a first - two major stars having oral sex on screen. It was quite shocking for the 70s. Donald Sutherland goes down on Julie Christie, after which they have very realistic looking sex.

Coming Home
Jon Voight plays a paraplegic Vietnam veteran giving Jane Fonda pleasure the only way he can - with his tongue.

The Postman Always Rings Twice
Jack Nicholson goes down on Jessica Lange. Nice to see Jack on his knees.

9 1/2 Weeks
This soft porn film is one of the best known sex movies of all time. Mickey Rourke gives Kim Basinger cunnilingus in an alley during a thunderstorm.

Basic Instinct (Directors Version)
The uncut version features Michael Douglas going the growl on Sharon Stone, scenes considered too steamy for normal cinema release.

Body of Evidence
Willem Dafoe gives Madonna cunnilingus while she hangs from a garage water sprinkler (not the most comfortable of positions, but what can you do).


This is a soft porn film masquerading as art, but it's still worth watching. Features a very hot threesome scene with lots of cunnilingus.

And God Created Woman

The 1987 remake has Rebecca DeMornay demanding oral sex like a queen

Pulp Fiction

Features a fairly memorable scene where Bruce Willis' character gives "oral pleasure" to his French girlfriend. Surprisingly tender in such a violent movie.

Cadillac Man
It's a strange thought: The Nanny Fran Drescher laying in bed while Robin Williams sidles down between her thighs. If you can handle the idea, this is the movie to watch.

Henry and June
This is a true story about the triangular relationship between novelists Henry Miller, his wife and Anais Nin. Plenty of sex scenes and one good cunnilingus scene.

This French film was banned in some countries due to its real fellatio scene and erect penises. The heroine receives cunnilingus from a complete stranger in a stairwell.

The Hot Spot
Miami Vice star Don Johnson goes down on Virginia Madsen in the back seat of a car.

The Sweetest Thing
Cameron Diaz has a dream where she enjoys oral sex on the hour throughout the night.

Scary Movie
In a scene played for laughs, cunnilingus and fellatio are followed by a ridiculous geyser of an orgasm.

The Getaway
Real life husband and wife Kim Basinger and Alec Baldwin simulate cunnilingus.

Fast Sofa
Jennifer Tilly enjoys the oral attention of a hot guy.

This weird movie features people who become sexually aroused by car crashes. In one scene, Alice Poon bends over and gets oral sex from a man behind her.

Knight Moves
Kehli O'Byrne receives cunnilingus from Christopher Lambert.

Year of the Gun
Sharon Stone watches a man go down while she leans up against a door.

Monkey Shines
Kate MacNeil sits on an unknown man's face as monkeys get noisy in the background.

Free Enterprise
This apparently atrocious Star Trek parody film features a scene where cunnilingus in the car results in a loss of driver attention and subsequent crash.

This trashy horror film features a scene where a man carries around his own head, and then this head gives cunnilingus to a girl. This scene only appears in the unrated video version and may only be for the stout hearted!

Other films that feature cunnilingus include:
There's Something About Mary, Lawn Dogs, Good Will Hunting, Urban Legends: The Final Cut, Still Crazy

Cunnilingus on TV

Buffy the Vampire Slayer - The TV Series
An episode entitled Buffy The Musical featured Willow going down on Tara, something the fans found rather shocking.

Several episodes of Seinfeld dealt with oral sex. In one, George bemoaned his lack of cunnilingual skill and said his girlfriend had given him "The Tap" on the shoulder, telling him to stop. In another, Elaine's boyfriend refuses to "do Everything" until she finally convinces him. After he goes down on her, he heads off to play saxaphone in his band, and is unable to blow into the instrument. See quotes.

The Sopranos
One episode of this mafia series was devoted to the wise-guy belief that performing cunnilingus is a sign of weakness.

Monster's Ball - The Director's View of the Cunnilingus Scene 

RG:  Let's talk about the scene in which Billy Bob goes down on Halle. That is not really something you see seriously portrayed in films these days.

MF: I totally agree with you and that was one of the reasons I wanted to show it. You see the opposite, but never a man going down on a woman.

RG: Do you think your film will increase the world's supply of cunnilingus?

MF: (laughter) I hope so.

RG: The women in the group I saw the film with were definitely cheerleading that scene.

MF: Oh really? Do you know what I love about that scene? When he comes up, and she just looks at him and I stay on that shot, and the only background sound is the low wind tone. I just love that nothing really happens, and we just stay on that shot for like a minute.

RG: And he says, "Did that feel good?"

MF: Her eyes in that scene are just so good.

RG: It reminds me of Marvin Gaye's "Sexual Healing," in the sense that they're tending to each others wounds through sex.


Quotes from the cunnilingus scene in Better Than Sex

Josh disappears beneath the sheet...

Cin (thinking): Yeah, OK. I'm relaxed... mmmm... But what if I don't come? Oh stop it, close your eyes and relax. Mmmm... Oh, bingo, that's it, nice and gentle, up a bit, up a bit, now go round. Oh yeah, mmmm... But what if I come too fast? Oh, forget about him, he can beg for his later, I'm just gonna lie here, relax and enjoy... Left, go left. PLEASE go left... Oh god... so close...

Cin (to camera): I find it hard to relax with someone new, and I got quite ticklish. Sometimes it's just too intimate, you know, with his tongue and everything... He seemed to enjoy it, which is good. It wasn't a chore for him. But I got a bit desensitised and I think the poor boy got a bit tired.

I recommend Better Than Sex
This is an excellent film, very sexy, very real and also very funny. If it were explicit I'd call it the ideal women's porno film. It is Australian and may be difficult to obtain in the US, but it is worth the effort.

Excerpt from the cunnilingus scene in Chasing Amy

A bar.  Banky tells Alyssa he's stopped going down on girls because they don't give him enough directions.


                 No, heís got a point. Thatís how I was in high school - I was nervous, and inhibited about being eaten out.  But by the time I got to college, that all changed.  I loosened up.  Not only did I learn to communicate - I learned to be bossy.  I was like one of those guys at the airport with those big flash lights - waving them this way, directing them that way, telling them when to stop.


And thatís all Iím saying, itíd be different if chicks helped out - pointed a guy in the right direction.  Then thereíd be no bullshit, no wasted time, and no chance for permanent injuries.


Permanent injuries?


                 Sure.  You wanna see something permanent! (pulls our front tooth)I got this from Nina Rollins, sophomore year.  Iím going down on her, and out of nowhere, her cat jumps on her stomach.  She does this big olí pelvic thrust - cracks my tooth in half, sends it down my throat.  I had to get a crown for the stub.


                     (to Holden) I got that beat. (to Banky) I got that beat. (half-turns and lifts chin)

                 Sophomore year.  Iím going down on Cynthia Slater in her dorm room after we went club-hopping.  Iím totally drunk, and in the middle of it, I fall  asleep - right there in her lap.  She got so mad, she digs her heel into my back, right there. (points to scar) Thatís permanent.
