In TV and movies, sex is often portrayed as this romantic and perfect thing. Rarely shown are any of the problems that can arise during sex, and it's even rarer that there's an onscreen sense of humor about such things. But once in a while, films and television shows portray intimacy in the lighthearted and funny (or sometimes wildly inappropriate) manner that it often exists.

Here are 10 of our favorite hilarious sex scenes from the last 15 years.

The 40-Year-Old Virgin
While there's no shortage of great sexual references in the movie that made Steve Carell a household name, there's very little onscreen action. That said, a couple of the scenes are just as hilarious now as they were when released more than a decade ago. Elizabeth Banks is a close second, but Carell trying to figure out how to put on a condom is an all-time classic. For any guy who's ever struggled with condoms, you can't help but think of this scene.

Zack and Miri Make a Porno
Staying on the theme of Elizabeth Banks and Seth Rogen getting it on without showing much, Zack and Miri predictably had a handful of solidly funny sex scenes. Sure, some were a little grosser than others, but isn't that the way sex works?

Zoolander
Forget the abomination they called a sequel; the original Zoolander had some of the best quotes and scenes of all time. Although the big orgy scene is short on both dialogue and nudity, it's still a great moment and hilarious in the context of the scenes around it. Who doesn't want to see Blue Steel while they're bumping uglies?

Girls
Everyone has their own favorite sex scenes in HBO's Girls (we even made a list of some of them), so we'll let you pick whatever you find funniest. Whether it's the 11-year-old junkie with a lunchbox fantasy, Marnie or Jessa getting it on with a variety of weirdos, or Shosh finally losing it, there's something to make just about everyone laugh in the various sex scenes of Girls.

Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy
Much like Sex Panther, Anchorman's primary sex scene is funny 60 percent of the time, every time. Seriously though, while keeping the movie PG-13, the one and only Ron Burgundy takes Veronica Corningstone to Pleasure Town and then some. It's either the mustache or the rich mahogany, but something about this scene just gets better with every watch.

Wedding Crashers
It seems as though Vince Vaughn is at his best when he's put in awkward situations. In Wedding Crashers, that happens almost constantly. While he's the confident one of the duo, his character is forced into strange situations, all while his partner in crime attempts to pick up on the love of his life. Crazy women, crazy dudes, and crazy funny. Not all of us can be lucky enough to be Chazz Reinhold.

Shameless
Girls isn't the only show with great sex scenes. Shameless got a list of its own, but for slightly different reasons. Although plenty of the show's sex is weird or uncomfortable, Kevin and Veronica have pretty hilarious sexcapades with some regularity early in the series. If that's not good enough, there's always Frank and Sheila going at it for the first time ...

Forgetting Sarah Marshall
What would the movie world be like these days without Forgetting Sarah Marshall? All four of its main stars got huge boosts in popularity, and it gave us some of the funniest sex in recent memory. From Jason Segel showing off his junk to the noisy sex battle between the two couples, the entire movie was an exemplary comedy in the fields of both romance and sex.

Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story
Much like it does with drugs, music, and everything else, Walk Hard perfectly parodies the whole concept of "rock star" sex. From mistresses to full-blown orgies on the road, it's probably the only time you'll ever want to see John C. Reilly naked (unless you're into that kind of thing).

Silicon Valley
Alright, so there's no *actual* sex in this scene (and you'll have to watch it on YouTube since HBO won't easily allow embeds), but Silicon Valley pulled off one of the greatest dick jokes of all time to end their second season. If you're not familiar with the dick-to-floor ratio and how it leads to middle-out compression, just do yourself a favor and watch the scene.
