BLISS WARRIOR’S ELEVEN INSANELY HOT SAPPHIC SCENES

by Miss Bliss

Bliss Warrior prides herself on exquisite taste in film – and women. So I thought I’d share my favorite sensuous girl scenes and seek the opinions of all you Angels, Goddesses and Vixens.

Top Eleven Absolutely Gorgeous Scenes Of Women Making Love

There’s no porn here – everything’s available on NetFlix. And I’m not saying these are all great films, either. These are just scenes that drive me wild every time I see them, and remind me that girls who don’t love girls are just a little bit insane.

1-Unbearable Lightness of Being.
It’s 1988. Juliete Binoche photographs Lena Olin. Lena photographs Juliette. Bliss Warrior’s life changes forever.

2- Show Me Love.
Lukas Moodyson’s sublime coming-out story that’s really a luminous coming-of-age story. Lost and lonely Swedish teens Agnes and Ellin share their first kiss while an unlikely 80s power ballad plays on the car stereo. Trust me on this.


3- The Hunger. Catherine Deneuve and Susan Sarandon’s love scene is as shocking and hypnotic now as it was in 1983. It’s great fun to revisit this film and remember the moment Goth peaked.

4 - Exterminating Angels. Halfway through this unholy French exploitation flick you realize you’re watching a self-indulgent male-menopausal misogynist cry for help masquerading as feminism. “Silly” is a kind word for this one. But the love scenes are some of the most gorgeous ever filmed. The restaurant scene is worth the rental, and the all-girl threesome will change your life.

5 - Aimee and Jaguar.
Required viewing. A Nazi’s wife falls in love with a Jewish girl who’s helping the resistance. It’s devastating, gorgeous, sexy as hell, and a true story. Great book, too.

6 – Bound. You knew this would make the list. If you still haven’t seen Gina Gershon & Jennifer Tilly share the most tantalizing first kiss ever, catch up. Quick!

7 – Gia. This film’s influence on bi-girls is like the Big Bang – it’s still expanding. Trashy, exploitative, made-for-cable, and I own it proudly. The best performance Angelina J. ever gave – until “A Mighty Heart” (which is also required viewing, just for different reasons). Insanely hot. Damn.

8 – Desert Hearts. Helen Shaver & Patricia Charbonneau redefine chemistry with one of the all-time classic lesbian love scenes. It’s charming, it’s campy, and who doesn’t love a film about the 1950s made in the 1980s. The new 2 Disc DVD has extra footage you really should see.


9 – Bitter Moon. Not exactly a bi-girl film, but Polanski got creepy again in the early ‘90s. Hugh Grant spends half the film wondering how he can cheat on Kristin Scott-Thomas with Emmanuelle Seigner. Then Kristin gets her instead. Their moment is brief, but it balances out the brilliant psychological creepiness of the story. This film makes very uptight men even more uptight. I mentioned it was creepy, right?

10 – High Art.

I don’t think I can say anything about Radha Mithcell and Ally Sheedy’s scene that hasn’t been said by those more eloquent than me. This show is everything “The L Word” wishes it was. Before there was Shane, there was Ally Sheedy.

11 - Mulholland Drive.
Because, well, you know.
And if you don’t, rent it right now!

*********************************************************

IN CASE YOU WERE WONDERING…

Sorry frat boys, there’s no “Wild Things” on this list. Nothing against Neve Campbell or the former Mrs. Sheen, but that little piece of swimming pool infamy was two women PRETENDING to be into each other to sucker a man. It’s also a prime example of female bisexuality being used as a marketing tool to suck-in males. Not hot. (Neve more than redeems herself with Jolie Carter behind a gauzy curtain in the intriguing-and-yet-silly “When Will I Be Loved”)

There’s no “Chasing Amy” here either. Many love this film, but I could never get too hot for a story of a woman who thought she was lesbian until she was straightened out by Ben Affleck’s Goatee.

**************************************************************************************

Okay, ladies! Tell me what scenes and films you love. I’m waiting.

I’ve learned so much from reading your blogs! Including this one! There were a few I’d never seen before and I’ve already added them to my list! Thank you so much!

Well among these films, i have personally only seen GiA, which is one of my fav. all time.. favoritest movies ever.. i also liked GIRL INTERRUPTED, also with angelina jolie, girl interrupted was a movie i could totally relate to … made me feel like i was a crazy person trapped inside a normal person’s body somehow. the gia scene when they did the wicked photo shoot was insanely provocative. a real live photo shoot like that would be exciting…

Hmmm…another couple of ones that might ignite:

Girl Thing with Elle McPherson (oh my…)

Loving Annabelle (hot by somewhat taboo…just shy of 18 student seducing her hot teacher)

When Night is Falling (a woman seduced by the beauty and allure of a circus performer…and while I hate the stereo type here about lesbians seeking out and trying to convert straight women…the sensuality factor in this one is amazing)

And when I was a youngster (shhh!!) “Desert Hearts” and “Hunger” were my outlet… both incredibly risk taking for the time they were made. I am so grateful times are evolving and more women writers, prodcuers and directors are taking on these projects. There are so many films out there and yes quite a few are in my personal library ;) Oh…the Tipping the Velvet miniseries is pretty awesome too.

Thank you Beautiful Bliss,

I have seen Mulholland Drive. The chemistry between the two characters is palpable. The build-up, the yearning, the release. Oh my! What was the movie about? LOL I have seen the others listed but not all. Looks like movie night this weekend.

I disagree with the Chasing Amy comment– I don’t think it was about a lesbian being “straightened out” by a man so much as a person falling in love with another person. And when this other person becomes intimidated by her past love life he feels inadequate and ends up ruining what he had in an effort to relieve his own inadequacies. Though I don’t remember anything sensually substantial to include it on the list anyway.

WE LOVE YOUR PICS, ….SO WILD THINGS DID NOT MAKE THE LIST…. HMM YOU REALLY DIDN’T THINK IT LOOKED REAL ENOUGH TO PLAY THE LESBIAN GAME. WHAT ABOUT BASIC INSTINCT, WHICH HAD A VERY SHORT LESBIAN SCENE. MY CREATIVE FILM DIRECTOR: SAPPHOSLOVERBOY(JACK) A PASSIONATE STRAIGHT MAN WHO LOVES WOMYNLOVINGWOMYN, WOULD HAVE MADE THAT MOVIE AND THE SEQUEL MUCH MORE LESBIAN LOVERS HOT, AND EVEN HOTTER THAN THE L WORD SERIES. IF YOUR INTERESTED DEAR GRRL WE WOULD LOVE TO HAVE YOUR SUPPORT IN OUR “WOMYN2WOMYN” PROJECT WE ARE DEVELOPING IN NEW YORK.

Yes BW, We would love to have your support on our “WOMYN2WOMYN” project here in Hawaii too! ;)
So I’ve watched Unbearable Lightness of Being, Gia, and Show Me Love. I’m on to Exterminating Angels and Bound. The movies are a great addition to my workday. I have em playing in the corner of my screen while photoshop takes up the rest. http://www.youku.com! Japanese youtube that’s got all the good hard to find movies!
You have exquisite taste Miss Bliss! My first question was: where is “Boys Don’t Cry”? Was it too ruff for the list? The answer is no. It’s just too obvious. You picked out the more obscure ones. Ones with class (for the most part) and that’s what you do best! Boys Don’t Cry is one of my favorites though. Hilary was amazing of course, but Chloe……mmmmmmmmmmm

Lost and Delirious (2001) is a good movie. It’s a comming of age lesbian movie that’s a little messed up.

Henry and June!
there are several scenes, but the most authentic is when Anais and June are together…it ends tragically, but still sexy!!!

What about Secret Things? You may be opposed for the fact that the women got together once or twice to affect a man, but still, they’re very hot. Plus, the plot line gets a little twisted towards the end.

Good look! I added a couple titles to my Netflix Queue. Can’t wait!!

Imagine Me & You is also a great movie! I love it because it’s really light-hearted unlike a lot of other lesbian films :) Great for watching with your straight friends too.
