In the film industry, unsimulated sex is the presentation in a film of sex scenes where the actors engage in an actual sex act and are not just miming or simulating the actions. At one time in the United States such scenes were restricted by law and self-imposed industry standards such as the Motion Picture Production Code. Beginning in the late s, most notably with Blue Movie by Andy Warhol , mainstream movies began pushing boundaries in terms of what was presented on screen. Notable examples include two of the eight Bedside -films and the six Zodiac -films from the s, all of which were produced in Denmark and had many pornographic sex scenes, but were nevertheless considered mainstream films, all having mainstream casts and crews, and premiering in mainstream cinemas. From the end of the s until the late s it was rare to see hardcore scenes in mainstream cinema, but this changed with the success of Lars von Trier 's The Idiots , which heralded a wave of art-house films with explicit content,   such as Romance , Baise-moi , Intimacy , Vincent Gallo 's The Brown Bunny , and Michael Winterbottom 's 9 Songs

Yes, obviously, we're aware that porn exists, but we are not talking about porn here. No, we're talking about actual, mainstream or, at very least, as the level of "mainstream" achieved by arthouse foreign films and indies movies with actual plots that also happen to feature actual humans engaging in actual sex acts.

Both mainstream and art house cinema continues to blur the line of what is acceptable to show on screen. Forgetting that Blue is the Warmest Color opens with a ten-minute sex scene, the actresses draw attention during a heightened six-minute scene when they are shown actually masturbating to help create arousal in the moments building up to sex. The anatomy may have been prosthetic, but the actions performed were nothing short of authentic. You create the controversial 70s classic Caligula.
