With a wonderful example of Wikipedia redefinition of the dictionary to suit its purposes. I had a vague idea that mainstream movies would be ones people might possibly have heard of, with the likes of the memorable under-age sex scene from Escape to Witch Mountain, the censored buggery scene from Mary Poppins and the wide-ranging bestiality depicted in Monsters Inc.*

The article isn't well-cited, but whoever wrote it appears to know what they're talking about. I'll safely and self-servingly reserve judgement on whether that means the article is a credit to Wikipedia or not.

One clear problem is the article is titled: "List of mainstream films with unsimulated sex" yet there are sections on:

# 2 Films showing real object penetration
# 3 Films showing other actual sexual activity
# 4 Pornographic films reedited as mainstream releases
# 5 Television series with genuine sexual activity

Which are not related to the title!

I can vouch for the Caligula entry at least.
