Comment Share Let's face it. Sex sells. That's why almost every motion picture and television show has some form of sex or mention of the intimate act every few minutes. It's become a staple in life, even if it's a bit uncomfortable to watch alone or with friends and relatives. There's no escaping it. Most of the time, a sex scene can be smelled from a mile away, but there is only a handful of sex scenes that surprisingly erect themselves out of nowhere.
Horror[ edit ] In horror films , sex is often used to mark characters that are doomed to die. Characters that engage in sex acts are often the first to be claimed by the antagonist s , or will die shortly after their sex scene or sometimes in the middle of it. This convention of it being bad luck to have sex in a horror film is notably illustrated in the Friday the 13th film series, where supernatural villain Jason Voorhees takes a special dislike to teenagers and young adults having sex because, as a young boy, he drowned in a lake while the camp counselors who should have been supervising him were having sex. In some interpretations of this "rule", the sex acts themselves directly cause the character's demise. In Cabin Fever , a man catches the deadly illness because a woman who was infected but not yet symptomatic seduces and has impulsive sex with him.
