Sex Scenes in Movies where things are covered up

MovieSexTriviaFilter: Does anyone know of any movies where a couple is sitting in bed after sex and the guy is sitting there with his chest showing, the woman has the sheets pulled up perfectly covering her breasts?

A friend asked this question, and I find this question pretty funny. He already has: Dirty Dancing, What Women Want, When Harry Met Sally, Notting Hill, Nothing in Common. Come on MeFiMovieTriva fans!

Um... all of them? Somewhere there's a huge list of movie cliches (for example, you can always guess a computer's password in two tries in the movies) and I know that this one is listed there.

The list of movie cliches is here. But, they don't list specific movies. The antithesis of what you are looking for can be found in the opening scene of Godard's Contempt.

Yeah, actual movies is what I'm looking for.

L-shaped sheets appear in Days of Thunder.

This is also part of Roger Ebert's Movie Glossary. He says

"All beds have special L-shaped cover sheets that reach up to
the armpit level on a woman but only to waist level on the man lying beside her."

Sorry I couldn't think of any specific examples.

I was just watching The Wire the other day and noticed that it's the first tv show I've ever seen where the characters didn't have those magical L-shaped sheets. It was kind of disconcerting!

Literally every movie where the characters have sex at some point, especially if it's rated PG-13 (although often when it's rated R as well).
