The Oscar-winning classic queer film Call Me By Your Name has just earned another accolade: it’s officially considered the second hottest movie scene in movie history.
Fan platform FandomSpot conducted a scientific investigation using heart monitors to detect viewers’ level of arousal while watching some of the most notoriously sexy scenes in film and television history. An increase in heart rate results in an increase in arousal. The scenes contained a variety of characters of different ages, races, genders and sexual orientations.
“To keep the results believable, all participants were asked to watch all clips alone while seated, so that no external element could affect their heart rate. , in order to monitor with precision any irregular increase or decrease ”, specifies the site.

Call Me By Your Name’s most notorious scene – in which Timothée Chalamet indulges in an apricot (commonly mistakenly identified as a peach) – drew 29% of viewers. In the big scheme, it placed fourth on the top ten list and was the second highest rated movie scene behind Patrick Swayze and Demi Moore sculpting clay in Ghost.
Two TV scenes also completed Mr. Chalamet’s fishing: the heart-wrenching sex scene in Jessica Jones and the big sex scene in Normal People.
Call Me By Your Name wasn’t the only queer-themed scene to make the Top Ten, either. A shower sex scene between the characters Alex and Piper in Orange is the New Black landed at # 5 on the list.
