This week Lars von Trier’s sexual opus Nymphomanic was unleashed on the masses. The film follows one woman’s erotic journey — a self-proclaimed nymphomaniac named Joe (played by the always wonderful Charlotte Gainsbourg). Of course, Von Trier isn’t the first person to explore sexual obsession. Pop culture is full of “sex addicts” who can’t control their appetite between the sheets. We found ten other insatiable characters whose libidos have been working overtime.
When author Ian Fleming created the fictional British Secret Service agent James Bond, he designed a character whose main objective was to be a “blunt instrument wielded by a government department.” Fleming intended for 007 to be good-looking and a favorite with the ladies, but it was the 007 film series that made Bond a pop culture sex symbol. The serial womanizer always manages to find time for a romp, even while giving the baddies a chase.
