7 Black Films Giving Slow & Sensual 'Come F*ck Me' Vibes

Let's take it nice & slow.

Culture & Entertainment

The Black-on-Black complexions, the passion — simply iconic. Quite frankly, as much as I love the scene in The Notebook (and I do love it) it's incomparable to the sensuality that comes when Black-on-Black skin tones meld together. It's actually the embodiment of the gif used in this article's featured image. There's something about Black romance, passion, and lust that make me all tingly inside, especially when there's an emphasis on the passion. As Darius from fan-favoriteLove Jones might say, it's "urgent like a mothafucka" —as it should be.

In the same way that they say porn ruins people's expectations of sex, I have to say many of these love scenes have ruined mine! And hell, maybe, it's me but my sex life is not giving '90s and early 2000s lust. Personally, it's giving the coming-of-age teeny bopper in the worst way.

So, forgive me if I like to escape from time to time and bury myself in the fictional moments impressed upon us for a lifetime with scenes like the 7 below. Check them out and see if you aren't scurrying for your phone (to schedule a dick appointment ASAP) or reaching for your toy.

Sidenote: Black Hollywood, give us more, please. Give us more '90s love and sensuality in our music, in our films...just put it in the water.

1. Soul Food: Faith and Miles

I was getting ready to put the Nia Long scene in here but it hit me that despite our disdain for cousin Faith, we have to give her and nasty-ass Miles their flowers because this scene was yummy. It romanticizes the quick fuck in all the right ways (not the quick fucking-of-your-cousin's husband though.).

2. Their Eyes Were Watching God: Janie and Tea Cake

You may have forgotten about this novel-turned-movie, but I'm here to remind you that Monster's Ball isn't the only time Halle Berry put on for the camera. The way Ms. Berry gives us her soul in her sex scenes, well, there's not that much getting into character in the world. Especially because so many industry folk have spoken out about how awkward it is to deliver a sex scene to begin with. Anyways, my good sis put her back into this one.

3. Jason’s Lyric: Lyric and Jason

Apparently if there was one thing Jada Pinkett Smith was gonna do it was deliver the most bomb sex scenes—scenes that bring you to life decades later! This one is neck and neck with the scene from Set it Off — especially given that the '90s were still slightly more conservative than what we experience in film these days.

4. How Stella Got Her Groove Back: Stella and Winston 

Everyone loves to discuss the shower scene here but really it's that first sex scene when Stella and Winston are still at the resort. The canopy on the bed, the heavy tongue action — it makes it easy to forgive Taye Diggs for that terrible Jamaican accent.

5. Never Die Alone: Juanita and King David

DMX is known for a lot, but we don't give him enough cred for his on-screen sex scenes. Between the scene from Belly and this one here—Earl is undeniable. But I have to say, it's definitely Reagan Gomez Preston's character Juanita who puts on for this scene. She did what needed to be done — bringing all the sexy, sensual vibes.

6. Deliver Us From Eva: Eva and Ray

Not even being able to make it to the bed is top-tier #sexgoals. And quite frankly, I wish I knew the vibes, but until I do, watching Eva and Ray work one another up into a frenzy in a sadistic attempt of trying to avoid sex is beyond satisfaction.

7. Set It Off: Stony and Keith

This classic scene will forever be held to the highest degree of sensuality with the mildly kinky dragging of that chain across Stony's glistening body. If fairy tales focused on sex, this would be it for me. This movie is high-key why we (the Black delegation) haven't forgotten Blair Underwood can play more than an asshole and he can do it oh-so-well.

Black women have been redefining what wellness looks like since the beginning of time. (I even have a real-life, sassy, still-walking-signifying-driving-gardening example of this via my own 92-year-old Granny, who is the epitome of manifestation and self-preservation, as she has always defined wellness on her own terms.) We continue to shift the narrative, especially when it comes to what "wellness" actually means as a Black woman in a world where it can be so hard to simply exist in fullness.

We all know what it is to love, be loved, or be in love – or at least we think we do. But what would you say if I were to tell you that so much of the love that you thought you’d been in was actually a little thing called limerence? No, it doesn’t sound as romantic – and it’s not – unless you’re into the whole Obsessed-type of love. But one might say at least one side of that dynamic might be…thrilling.

Before she was Amira Unplugged, rapper, singer, and a Becoming a Popstar contestant on MTV, she was Amira Daughtery, a twenty-five year-old Georgian, with aspirations of becoming a lawyer. “I thought my career path was going to lead me to law because that’s the way I thought I would help people,” Amira tells xoNecole. “[But] I always came back to music.”

A music lover since childhood, Amira grew up in an artistic household where passion for music was emphasized. “My dad has always been my huge inspiration for music because he’s a musician himself and is so passionate about the history of music.” Amira’s also dealt with deafness in one ear since she was a toddler, a condition which she says only makes her more “intentional” about the music she makes, to ensure that what she hears inside her head can translate the way she wants it to for audiences.

“The loss of hearing means a person can’t experience music in the conventional way,” she says. “I’ve always responded to bigger, bolder anthemic songs because I can feel them [the vibrations] in my body, and I want to be sure my music does this for deaf/HOH people and everyone.”

In order to lift people’s spirits at the beginning of the pandemic, Amira began posting videos on TikTok of herself singing and using sign language so her music could reach her deaf fans as well. She was surprised by how quickly she was able to amass a large audience. It was through her videos that she caught the attention of a talent scout for MTV’s new music competition show for rising TikTok singers, Becoming a Popstar. After a three-month process, Amira was one of those picked to be a contestant on the show.

Becoming a Popstar, as Amira describes, is different from other music competition shows we’ve all come to know over the years. “Well, first of all, it’s all original music. There’s not a single cover,” she says. “We have to write these songs in like a day or two and then meet with our producers, meet with our directors. Every week, we are producing a full project for people to vote on and decide if they’d listen to it on the radio.”

To make sure her deaf/HOH audiences can feel her songs, she makes sure to “add more bass, guitar, and violin in unique patterns.” She also incorporates “higher pitch sounds with like chimes, bells, and piccolo,” because, she says, they’re easier to feel. “But it’s less about the kind of instrument and more about how I arrange the pattern of the song. Everything I do is to create an atmosphere, a sensation, to make my music a multi-sensory experience.”

She says that working alongside the judges–pop stars Joe Jonas and Becky G, and choreographer Sean Bankhead – has helped expand her artistry. “Joe was really more about the vocal quality and the timber and Becky was really about the passion of [the song] and being convinced this was something you believed in,” she says. “And what was really great about [our choreographer] Sean is that obviously he’s a choreographer to the stars – Lil Nas X, Normani – but he didn’t only focus on choreo, he focused on stage presence, he focused on the overall message of the song. And I think all those critiques week to week helped us hone in on what we wanted to be saying with our next song.”

As her star rises, it’s been both her Muslim faith and her friends, whom she calls “The Glasses Gang” (“because none of us can see!”), that continue to ground her. “The Muslim and the Muslima community have really gone hard [supporting me] and all these people have come together and I truly appreciate them,” Amira says. “I have just been flooded with DMs and emails and texts from [young muslim kids] people who have just been so inspired,” she says. “People who have said they have never seen anything like this, that I embody a lot of the style that they wanted to see and that the message hit them, which is really the most important thing to me.”

Throughout the show’s production, she was able to continue to uphold her faith practices with the help of the crew, such as making sure her food was halal, having time to pray, dressing modestly, and working with female choreographers. “If people can accept this, can learn, and can grow, and bring more people into the fold of this industry, then I’m making a real difference,” she says.

Though she didn’t win the competition, this is only the beginning for Amira. Whether it’s on Becoming a Popstar or her videos online, Amira has made it clear she has no plans on going anywhere but up. “I’m so excited that I’ve gotten this opportunity because this is really, truly what I think I’m meant to do.”
