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

Giphy

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  

Giphy

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

Giphy

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  

Nate GIF - Find & Share on GIPHYGiphy

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.

Your October 2022 Horoscopes Are All About Finding Flow & Alignment

October is a month of balance. With some energy moving direct and some energy moving retrograde, there is a middle ground to find this month between what is unfolding and what you are letting go. The month begins with Mercury officially moving out of retrograde and going direct in Virgo. Mercury this month is cleaning house and sprucing things up after the somewhat tyrant energy it’s brought over the past few weeks. Now that Mercury is direct, there is less interruption when it comes to daily flow and plans, and this is a good month to start setting things into motion.

The Myth Of The Sex Drive & How Libido Changes From Your 20s, 30s, 40s & 50s

No one prepared me for how horny I would be in my late 30s. All the elders in my life prepared me for random chin hairs, weight gain, and menopause but no one said a mumbling word about my sex drive. Something happens the closer you get to forty. I went from wanting sex here and there to wanting it all the damn time. Is there a support group for this? I can’t be the only one who has the sex drive of the Energizer Bunny. Upon my research to figure out why I felt like a cat in heat, I discovered several theories surrounding women and our sex drives–including one that says the concept of having a sex drive is a myth altogether.

Black woman with an afro and tube top laughing

If you have been on social media for any significant amount of time this year you may have come across women saying that they are in their “villain era.” For these women, being a villain means embracing the negativity and judgment from others that comes when you say “no” to people, and living your life unapologetically. For them, being a villain means letting the chips fall where they may when you no longer allow other people’s ideas about you to restrict you from living the life that you want and deserve.
