The only one that is pretty good is actually one of the earliest. Nagisa Oshima's In the Realm of the Senses. That one isn't bad. It's also not that great though.

I just don't see the point of the real sex in real films, when simulated would work just fine. Even the knowledge that two people are having sex in a movie is plenty for me...I mean we ALL know what that's like. Must we see it? And if we see it, must we see actual penetration? I mean, is it really necessary?
It could probably be simulated. I don't understand your objections to the graphic nature. What's the difference between sex and violence? Perhaps it is distracting, but not to everyone, it's a personal and cultural thing.
