BDSM is not often portrayed in movies. When it is, it’s often campy and overdone, more as a joke than anything else. Most sex is movies is very vanilla.
Not so in the movie 300: Rise of an Empire. Eva Green and Sullivan Stapleton give a great sex scene, and I don’t often say those words!
They both play archenemies, meeting to fight and make love and win dominance over the other.
Sex scenes in movies don’t normally do much for me (I prefer novels), but yummm. I watched it like give more times after that. Maybe more. Okay, definitely more.
But other rape scenes don’t really do it for me. Like the recent rape scene between Jaime and Cersei Lannister in A Game of Thrones. Or the famous rape scenes of Clockwork Orange or the lipstick scene with Margaux Hemingway forced-sex scene.
Why did I find this movie alluring? Because both characters were strong. Both fought for dominance. The man was obviously physically stronger and was going to win, but she gave him a good run for his money.
Are there any sex scenes you all particularly enjoy? Leave a comment!
