2. Shame (2011)

Michael Fassbender's character in "Shame" licking his fingers while trying to seduce a woman in the bar
Fox Searchlight Pictures

"There are a few sex scenes in this movie, but I think the best (and maybe the most real?) moment is when Michael Fassbender's character goes to a bar and tries to seduce a stranger...right in front of her boyfriend. In this particular scene, he's desperate for attention, so their close whispers and dirty talk lead to him fingering the woman in public and then parading it around in hopes of getting her boyfriend angry. It's a haunting, sexy, and vulnerable scene."
