Every good movie has a memorable scene -- an action scene, a sex scene, or our personal favorite, a food-centric scene. Fewer and far between are the cinematic moments where food porn and soft core porn come together-- in a scene that is sometimes erotic and more often, not. Whether they turn you on or turn your stomach, here are the 10 best food sex scenes in movies.
This comical short by Matthew Ehlers made the rounds at the Sundance Film Festival and SXSW. A disgruntled nine-to-fiver looking for a way out makes his grand exit during the most important meal of the workday, lunch. Featuring edible underwear, body cream, and a whole lot more, this film is definitely worth the four-minute watch.2. When Harry Met Sally
Even though technically food was not involved, this iconic scene from a rom-com classic makes the list for two reasons. First, Meg Ryan faking an orgasm in a crowded diner is quite possibly the sexiest moment of her career. Second, this public climax has no doubt inspired countless double dog dares among restaurant-goers ever since.3. Sex in the City
Kim Cattrall's character Samantha strips down and sushis up for this appetizing scene from the HBO series' first movie. Unfortunately, as Samantha learns, serving yourself up as a platter takes patience and more importantly, timing.4. Like Water for Chocolate
We've had quite a few memorable meals in our time, but safe to say none of them ever got us sexually aroused. In this novel-based film, Lumi Cavazos shows us that mixing rose petals, poultry, and (gulp) blood, is a sure-fire way to get your dinner guests hot and bothered. If only people would feel the same about our tuna casserole.5. Bridesmaids
Good things come to those who wait, and those who patiently sat through the end credits of Bridesmaids were definitely rewarded. As the final credits begin to roll, the movie cuts to an extended scene of Melissa McCarthy and real-life husband Ben Falcone documenting their first sexual encounter. Their food-fueled foreplay involves McCarthy feeding a giant sub to her "hungry bear" on the bed.6. Fast Times at Ridgemont High
Oh, high school -- the place where kids go to learn math, science, and how to perform fellatio on a carrot. This famous scene features Phoebe Cates teaching Jennifer Jason Leigh the blow job basics at the cafeteria table. Lesson number one, don't bite it.7. Tampopo
Whether you find the image of two people exchanging egg yolk mouth-to-mouth erotic or nauseating, Tampopo certainly turned the heads of foodies and frisky film goers alike.8. Varsity Blues
Long before Lady Gaga had us going vegetarian with her bacon ensemble and Katy Perry was shooting frosting out of her nipples, Ali Larter was sporting a whipped cream bikini in front of James Van Der Beek. Covering just the right parts of her front side, Larter's dessert delicates were as sweet as they were sinful.9. American Pie
No matter what Jason Biggs does with rest of his acting career, he will always be known as the dude who boinked an apple pie. We've heard our fair share of stories about teenage sexual exploration, but this one definitely takes the cake, er, pie.

How Kim Basinger didn't land a deal as the new spokesperson for Sub-Zero refrigerators, we will never understand. The blond bombshell threw energy-saving caution to the wind when she basked in the glow of the open ice box while Mickey Rourke fed her maraschino cherries and other household condiments that, until that moment, had never been thought of as sexy.
