Movies where sex is absolutely necessary

because film twitter decided to throw a tantrum over sex scenes, I thought this was a necessary list. Not all of them have full-on sex scenes per se, but they definitely have sex in them. And "necessary" doesn't inherently mean necessary to the plot, because movies are much more than just plot - though in most of these, yeah, it's necessary for the plot.
