And then they got naked...

I feel the need to applaud movies with awkward, unconventional and totally unsexy sex scenes, because these representations are often truer to life than the "rose petals and candlelight" versions. 

Let's have a cheer for the early arrivers, the sudden walk-in, the failed rekindling and the accessories such as pies and flutes.

Our movies ed Shaheema Barodien put together a comprehensive list of film's 10 most awkward sex scenes - complete with videos (note: NSFW).

Some are just plain funny while others depict a range of emotions other than love. However, they're all terribly unromantic and unlikely to spur on a romp in the sack once the credits roll.

They are guaranteed to stay with you.

What inspired our current fascination with off-kilter movie sex? The new movie Shame, out in cinemas this Friday.

It stars Michael Fassbender as a sex addict struggling to deal with his urges while hiding a closet full of secrets.

If you can stomach full-frontal nudity and seriously uncomfortable sex scenes, check out this mind-bender of a film. Watch the trailer here.
