The clip sex and nervousness from The American President (1995) with Michael Douglas, Annette Bening
You're not most people.
You know what your problem is?
What's my problem?
Sex and nervousness.
Sex and nervousness is my problem?
Last night when we were looking at those place settings...
I realized that those place settings were provided by the first ladies.
And I'll bet none of those first ladies...
were nervous about having sex with their president husbands.
And do you know why?
No, but you'll explain it to me.
I will. Because they weren't presidents when they first met them.
That's not the case here.
You see what I'm getting at?
May I use your bathroom?
Go through there, right behind you.
I just want to freshen up.
As you pass through, you'll see a large closet.
If you feel comfortable, hang up your coat.
When you come back, I'll have fixed us a drink.
We'll sit on the couch and I will explain to you my plan.
You got a plan? Don't make me wait. You're on a roll.
You're attracted to me, but the idea of physical intimacy is uncomfortable...
because you only know me as the president.
But it's not always gonna be that way.
The reason I know that is there was a moment last night...
when you were with me and not the president.
And I know what a big step that was for you.
So, Sydney, I'm in no rush. Here's my plan.
We're gonna slow down...
and when you're comfortable, that's when it's gonna happen.
Perhaps I didn't properly explain the fundamentals of the slow-down plan.
No, you explained it great.
Are you nervous?
My nervousness exists on several levels.
and this is in no particular order-
I haven't done this in a pretty long time.
