Need to find some movies scenes with good sex advice

What are some scenes from feature films with good sex advice?

I'm working on a video project to cut together clips from mainstream feature films that have good sex advice. Below are some examples of what I've got so far. I'm looking for movies that are rated PG to R and have the advice when a sex scene is not taking place (or if a love scene is taking place, then nothing explicit is shown.)

The scene in Forgetting Sarah Marshall when Aldous Snow's character gives the inexperienced new-husband-on-his-honeymoon character sexual position advice (by demonstrating with large chess pieces.)

The scene in Kinsey where he says "for all but a small minority of women, the vaginal tube is a dead cavity."

p.s: If you can tell me about how far into the movie the scene is, I would greatly appreciate it.

There's a scene in Casual Sex? in which Mary Gross's character explains to Lea Thompson's character how she's able to have orgasms with the man on top by moving her hips like a little "O". In fact there are probably a few good scenes in that movie, even if it does feature Andrew Dice Clay.

In Monty Python's Meaning of Life, there's the classroom scene in which John Cleese inquires what might be the best way to get a woman's juices flowing. "What about a kiss, boy?"

In The Tao Of Steve, Dex (Donal Logue) explains his overarching theory about suppressing one's desire in order to attract women. Something about how it takes a woman 20 minutes to get to her peak stage of arousal and if you can suppress your desire for 30 minutes, she'll be chasing you for 10.

In Bull Durham there are a few scenes, you could either go with the one where Annie ties Nuke to the bed and reads him poetry or the part where she tries to teach him how to undo her garters with one hand.

There's a scene in Knocked Up in which Jason Segel's character gives Seth Rogen some particularly bad advice about birth control: "The real point is not to get yourself into this position, that's what you have to realize. You gotta know all the tricks like, for example, if a woman's on top she can't get pregnant. It's just gravity."

The scene with the fake orgasm from When Harry Met Sally is really the "climax" of a sex advice discussion in which Sally disavows Harry of the notion that he's really good in bed.

American Pie has a lot of wide-eyed teenaged boy type sex advice. "What's it feel like?" "Like a warm apple pie."... etc.

Guy: "Why?"

Joel: "Because college girls can smell ignorance like dog shit."

Guy: "I'll think about it."

Joel: "Where are you going to school next year?"

Guy: "Wisconsin."

Joel: "Wisconsin? Big school."

Short Bus is full of it. One of the characters is a sex therapist.

It is very explicit. Like, giant orgy room on steady-cam explicit. And it's awesome.

There's Something About Mary:

Ted: I don't know Dom. I don't feel good. I feel nervous. I really feel nervous
Dom: Oh come on relax. You been to the cash machine?
Ted: Yeah
Dom: Car clean?
Ted: Uh huh
Dom: Plenty of gas?
Ted: Uh huh
Dom: Um breath how's your breath?
Ted: It's fine I had some altoids.
Dom: Alright I think you're all set. So just go clean the pipes and lets go.
Ted: Huh?
Dom: You know clean the pipes.
Ted: What do you mean clean the pipes?
Dom: You choke the chicken before any big date don't you? Tell me you spank the monkey before any big date. Oh my God he doesn't flog the dolphin before a big date. Are you crazy? That's like going out there with a loaded gun! Of course that's why you're nervous.

Oh I missed the important second part:

Dom: Look, after you've had sex with a girl and you're lying in bed with her, are you nervous?
Ted: No
Dom: No no you're not. Why?
Ted: Because I'm tired.
Dom: Wrong! It's cause you ain't got the baby batter in the brain anymore. That stuff will fuck your head up! Look, the most honest moment in a mans life are the few minutes after he's blown his load. Now that is a medical fact. And the reason for it is that you're no longer trying to get laid you're actually thinking like a girl and girls love that.
Ted: Holly shit! I've been going out with a loaded gun.
Dom: People get hurt that way.

I Love You Man:

Sydney Fife: Zooey, you are about to marry one of the most honest, kind and fun-loving people I've ever had the honor of knowing. The Pistol is a pleasure giver that's for sure. So beautiful Zooey, give it back. Yeah?
Return the favor. And if you do, I guarantee that you will have a beautiful and pleasure filled union.

Linda Barrett: A quart or so.

In this scene from Cruel Intentions, Sarah Michelle Gellar`s character teaches Selma Blair`s character how to french kiss.

Thanks for all the suggestions so far. I've seen a few clips from Everything You Wanted to Know About Sex But Were Afraid to Ask, but need to see the whole movie, as I recall it being hilarious.

I just watched the fake orgasm scene from When Harry Met Sally. Genius. I saw Monty Python's The Meaning of Life in high school, so I'll have to see the sex class scene again.

If anybody knows any scenes that are very similar in subject matter to the scene I mentioned from Forgetting Sarah Marshall, that would be very helpful. I probably should have been more specific about what I was looking for (general advice on positions/stimulation/how to make love) and also stated that I'm a guy.

American Pie 2 probably has a decent amount of this in the second half when Michelle is giving Jim sex tips:

Michelle: Okay, pretend I'm a hot girl. Now what do you want to do?
Jim: I want to feel your boobs.
Michelle: No, you dingbat. You don't just go groping away. You gotta pre-heat the oven before you stick in the turkey.

Related, from Roger Ebert's review of Lovely and Amazing:

There is a scene of uncomfortable truth when Elizabeth sleeps with Kevin, a fellow actor (an indifferent, narcissistic hunk played by Dermot Mulroney), and then stands before him naked, demanding that he subject her body to a minute commentary and critique. When he misses her flabby underarms, she points them out. When I saw the movie for the first time at Telluride, I noticed a curious thing about the audience. During most nude scenes involving women, men are silent and intent. During this scene, which was not focused on sexuality but on an actual female body, attractive but imperfect, it was the women who leaned forward in rapt attention. Nicole Holofcener, who wrote and directed "Lovely & Amazing," is onto something: Her movie knows how these women relate to men, to each other, to their bodies, and to their prospects of happiness.

Oi. Not from a film but TV series, Weeds. When the toilet gets stuffed up with socks, Uncle Andy gives young Shane some sex advice and instruction on masturbating etiquette that doesn't require a call to the plumber.

Little Miss Sunshine, grandfather to grandson in the back of the bus:

Grandpa: Listen to me, I got no reason to lie to you, don't make the same mistakes I made when I was young. Fuck a lotta women kid, not just one woman, a lotta women.

If you're open to TV shows there's the Simpsons episode where Milhouse gets a girlfriend (Season 3, episode 22, "Bart's Friend Falls In Love") which includes the following exchange:

Bart: Milhouse, we're living in the age of cooties. I can't believe the risk you're running. Besides, what's so great about kissing?
Milhouse: Bart it's not just the kissing; a lot of it is waiting to kiss. You know like when you open an Eskimo Pie and you wait just a little bit for it to melt?
Bart: But she doesn't melt.
Milhouse: Oh, yes she does.

This episode also includes the classic Troy McClure educational film: "Fuzzy Bunny's Guide to You-Know-What" which is worth it all on its own.
