The Greatest Sex Around Part 13 . . .

Posted by 2 Dollar Productions Tuesday, December 18, 2007

{This is the Thirteenth in a semi-regular series of posts regarding great cinematic sex scenes as defined by me. This is completely arbitrary and open for interpretation, but so is life.}

"Wild Orchid" is not a good movie.

In theory, this film could have been a decent companion piece to "9 1/2 Weeks," a project with some genuine erotic material. Mickey Rourke and Zalman King were back for 'Orchid,' a story set in Brazil also featuring newcomer model Carre Otis and Jacqueline Bisset.

The murky plot involved Otis working for an international law firm, an important negotiation in Brazil with Bisset acting as a mentor and Rourke hovering in the background as a reclusive millionaire. If you want to see a trailer for the film go to:,_Carre/Trailers/3329/

Otis is quickly drawn to Rourke (of course), however, Rourke seems more interested in pulling her sexual strings by having her watch another couple have sex inside a limo as well as trying to get her to sleep with an oily businessman wearing a carnival mask.

It was really just your old-fashioned courtship.

The main problem is the dialogue is consistently awful. Plotting is also suspect, and most of the screen time between sex scenes is mostly laughable or boring. A sample of dialogue from Bisset:

[after Volleyball Player has removed his jeans] "Ask him if he understands what tremendous pleasure women get looking at naked men."

But the reason this film earned a place among the all-time cinematic sex scenes is the climax of the film, which involves Otis and Rourke in a passionate tryst that was rumored to have been actual real sex as the pair were dating at the time. It's hard to say, however, both are greased up with what appears to be a conspicuous amount of Baby Oil for the scene and if they didn't have sex then the acting was pretty damn good.

I can't recommend watching "Wild Orchid" all the way through (unless you truly enjoy bad movies), but if you find yourself in the middle then fast forward straight to the end of this scene that generates some actual heat.

  2. I really hate it when sex is used as an excuse for not having a plot. Just make a damn porn flick and don't pretend it's anything else.

  3. the best "sex" scene for me was from "Witness". Call me old fashioned but one smoldering look of forbidden passion between Harrison Ford and Kelly McGillis generates more heat than WILD ORCHID.

    which wasn't even good porn, if you know what I mean.

  4. JLee Says:
  5. I know I saw this movie, but I'll be damned if I can remember it? I used to be a fan of Otis and used her as a model for a picture I did for my sister that's hanging in her house. Maybe I'll post it?

    I loved that scene in "Witness" too, AB!

  6. Bostonpobble - Ha. I tend to agree as soft core porn with very little plot seems essentially worthless to me.

    Anonymous Boxer - I have seen that 'Witness' seen cited over the years, so you're far from alone. I haven't seen that movie for so long that I ought to refresh myself on it. And yes, I do KNOW what you mean.

    Jlee - Another 'Witness' fan. Otis was pretty good looking, and I was a fan of Rourke at the time, so I remember this relationship. You should post it, and I wouldn't worry too much about the movie - it was very forgettable.

  8. Once again, "Thanks Mr. Skin" !!!

  9. I don't remember if I've mentioned this before. But, you know, there are these movies right, they got no plot whatsoever. Sometimes there's a pizza delivery guy pretense, but nothing substantial. The movies are often nothing but sex. Sex, sex, sex, sex, sex. I forget what the genre is called, but you maybe you should give those a try. Sounds like something you might enjoy.

  10. Heff - I'm in the holiday spirit, and I give and give and give. Enjoy. Ha.

    WhatIgot - You're being a bit ambigious (sp?) and the whole pizza delivery guy bit sounds contrived and not entirely believable. Send examples to Austin to cement yr. point.

  11. Gypsy Says:
  12. I haven't seen the movie but if that pic is anything to go by it looks like real sex to me. I was a fan of Mickey Rourke at the time too but he seems to be another one that has fallen on hard times and WAY too much plastic surgery. What a waste!!

  13. Gypsy Says:
  14. btw if you see anyone trawling through your archives its only me...there are a lot of things I want to catch up on like the other 12 parts to this series for a start.

  15. Gypsy - Just missed you in Cyberspace, and if Rourke/Otis didn't have sex then they came about as close as you can get without it. That's acting. And trawl away as there's a lot of back pages with this series starting a few months ago (I think).

  16. I have never seen the movie , but that looks like one hell of a scene. Btw...I totally agree w/ Bostonpobble.

  17. I tend to agree too as soft porn w/out plot does next to nothing for me. But this scene is pretty damn good. Ha.
