5. SILENCE OF THE LAMBS (1991)

Two words for you: The tuck. Serial killer Buffalo Bill is rejected for gender reassignment surgery due to mental reasons and decides to make his own lady suit out of actual lady skin. In this scene, he tries on a scalp wig, applies some make-up, throws a shawl over his naked bod, tucks his junk between his legs and flaunts his “feminine” form before his home video camera. This scene may not have done much for the transgender rights movement, but it spawned a generation of stupid party tricks by drunk dudes. It also gave us one of the greatest songs in thriller movie history: “Goodbye Horses” by Q Lazzarus.

american-beauty-216In honor of the birth of our nation, we're collecting the top 10 classic birthday-suit scenes from American movies with American themes.

Feel free to light a sparkler and disrobe in patriotic solidarity -- maybe you can make American sex a little more positive.
