Sure, sex scenes are often for titillation or simply to keep audiences interested during exposition, but these instances prove that, at their best, filmic love scenes are a vital narrative device we'll miss post-pandemic. Did you ever notice how sensitive you were to touch, until you could no longer?

Drama and comedy rely on human interaction, so halted productions are now turning their thoughts to how they will incorporate social distancing into storylines — soaps, especially, as a shortage of content is imminent. Thanks to camera trickery and canny editing, keeping actors and crew safe may require little onscreen compromise, but it means a moratorium on more intimate scenes. But a love scene can be a pivotal plot point — the reality of two or more characters finding themselves up close, with nowhere to hide, their bodies doing all the talking, can be key to the narrative.
