Listen, there's absolutely no shame in enjoying movie sex scenes. Whether you're into the romance-in-the-rain vibes of Rachel McAdams and Ryan Gosling in The Notebook or something a little more domineering, like Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson 's relationship in the 50 Shades of Grey trilogy, there's a little something for everyone.
