As another year draws to a close, it's time once again for those year-end popularity contests: looking back on 12 lovely months of movies and asking you, our readers, to pick the best of the bestest in all kinds of exciting categories. And when it comes to today's Best of 2012 poll, you might want to watch the nominees extra closely and behind the privacy of a locked door...for, uh, research. Yep, that's right: It's time to pick this year's Best Sex Scene! From sultry secret agents to insatiable vampires to 19th-century roués, this list is heavy on the hot-and-heavy—and on Robert Pattinson, who made so much excellent whoopie this year that he landed a double nomination. But there can be only one winner, young grasshoppers. And the nominees are...
"The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2"
Although no bedroom furniture was shattered in the making of their scene (disappoint!), the marital congress between Edward and his newly vampire-ified bride was just as athletic and hungry as fans hoped.
"The Lucky One"
Although he's there under false pretenses, the passionate against-the-wall lovin' between Logan Thibault (Zac Efron) and Beth Clayton (Taylor Schilling) is real, and it's spectacular.
Three is most definitely not a crowd when O (Blake Lively) plays multiple choice with boyfriends Ben (Aaron Johnson) and Chon (Taylor Kitsch).
It wouldn't be a Bond movie without a seduction scene between 007 and the Girl of the Moment, but this shower scene between James and Severine is extra steamy.
Georges DuRoy (Robert Pattinson) beds more or less the entire female population of 1880s Paris in this historical romance...and it's awesome.
