Watching the uncut version of "The forty year old virgin" with my inlaws.

I think it was when I was watching "The Witches of Eastwick" with my parents and I was about 13 or so and the Cher, Michelle Pfeiffer and Susan Sarandon started talking about their penis size preference. Kind of weird with my mom in the room.

The one Six Feet Under my folks and I sit down to watch together, and it's the gay paintball threesome episode.

Watching the original "Police Academy" with my grandparents when I was about 13. The blowjob at the podium scene was awkward enough, but my 78-year-old grandmother decided to ramp it up to 11. She looked over at my grandfather, grinned, said, "What's that girl doing to him under there!?"

And then winked at him.

The day in seventh grade when my mom had to come pick me up because I was caught reading a National Lampoon mag that she bought me. Not so awkward for she or me, but the Vice Principal could only stare at his shoes.

Going to see one of those Christopher Columbus movies that came out in1992 with my parents. I forget which one it was, but it was the one that featured naked women running around for well over half the movie.

"Manchurian Candidate", circa 2004. And lo, there was much cringing.

Not parents, but I watched "Liquid Sky" with an older female cousin when I was in junior high.

And some time before that a group of us watched "Fast Times at Ridgemont High" with a friend's stepmother. During the dugout scene he said "Watch, you can tell when he sticks it in her" and insisted on rewinding it to watch again. Did I mention his stepmother was watching it with us?
 
2012-10-19 06:29:39 PM
Watching late-night TV with my then-87-year-old mother and not being able to find the remote when a "Girls Gone Wild" commercial came on.

Also, I was about 8 years old decades earlier, when Mom took me to see "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid" when it came out. She'd already seen it and loved it. During the faux-rape scene with Paul Newman and Katharine Ross, my mom leaned over and whispered, "It's all right, Nancy," and patted my arm.

I still cringe.

I was invited to my elderly parents' house to see "some cowboy movie" that my father rented.

Brokeback Mountain.

Watching Top Gun in the theater with my grandfather when I was a kid. That scene where they get it on, despite being in silhouette, was still uncomfortable for a boy sitting with his mega-Christ grandad. Seems tame though, right?

On the ride home he asked me if I "had any feelings about that scene." CRINGE EPICENTER. I was maybe 10 years old I think.

/like all boys at the time, yes, I thought Kelly McGillis (sp?) was hot as fark, but you know I didn't say that.
//nah grandad, it looked kinda gross to me!

With my dad in a theater watching some WW2 movie (Guns of Navarone/Where Eagles Dare era) that had a quick full frontal scene near the beginning. He stood up and said, "are we in the right movie?!"

It was Pretty Baby.

I was sixteen and my mom got us tickets to see a live filming of All in the Family.

I remember watching Slapshot with my very conservative/Catholic mother and Great-Aunt...

First was Melinda Dillion's massive pencil eraser nipples...

Then when Reggie was prodding the opposing teams' goalie with the whole,,, "Suzanne's a lesbian", "Suzanne sucks pussy"...I was only about 16 but I had to crack up...

Subby's was seeing Lifeforce and full-frontal nude space vampires with mom.

Sounds better than my sister's first nude scene. I mean my sister's first time seeing a nude scene. Father took us to see a movie that turned out to be R rated. I got to watch, she got her eyes covered. It might have been the Stripes shower scene (tame, but genuine nudity), or maybe a sexy scene from Garp.

Hmm.. I wonder which one to choose from, I remember as a kid mom and dad took us to a drive in and we saw piranha and all the bouncing chests was one, but I think the most awkard one was when my dad took me and my brothers to go see Heavy Metal. because it was a cartoon he thought it would be safe.. hahaha.. come to think of it, I think he was feeling more awkward than we were...

Ghostbusters with my family and my Pastor's family. My brother was dating one of the pastor's daughters at the time. Seeing my Dad and my Pastor laughing at the "It's true, the man has no dick" scene and then both being shushed by their wives.

I never saw the movie, but I remember the trailer which I saw with my father and sister. Probably played before Stripes, which was also rated R. I don't think the animated nudity was enough to trigger parental concern.

First LP I ever bought was George Carlin: Occupation Foole. Laughs galore until Mom came home and caught me listening to the foul language with my brother and sisters. Mom freaked. It just so happened that this LP was among the first of a new breed of vinyl records that were ultra thin and ultra flexible - to the point of being called unbreakable. As hard as she tried Mom couldn't snap that record. That just pissed off Mom even more, resulting in laughter even louder than when she first came home from work.

When I was 11, my aunt thought that it was a good idea to take my sister and I to see a double feature of Cabaret and Lady Sings The Blues. I've never been asked to go to the concession stand so many times. 
Last year my mom was visiting. I kept her occupied with Netflix streaming. It went fine until she decided to play Sordid Lives and got to the scene where the psychiatrist tries to convert the drag queen by shouting "Fark me Earl! Fark me Earl!" Awkward.

Watching Titanic with my super religious father. He threw a hissy fit and walked out during the nude painting scene. I threw a hissy fit for wasting a few hours of my life watching that movie. He loves watching nature shows with the topless ladies in Africa though....

That would be great if you took a couple of hits with him.
Don't know if it would be awkward or not for you,but he is
smoking some primo sh*t.

My mom wanted me to be a priest, and she controlled everything I watched or read. I wasn't allowed to watch ST:TOS because it's looked too racy to her. but Lost In Space was just fine.
 
2012-10-19 10:08:39 PM
Went to see Anchorman with my dad. I didn't think that movie was funny until I watched in again years later, because all the jokes were crushed by my dad frowning disapprovingly at the screen.

However, I have a much funnier, cooler story (bro) to relate:

A friend of mine was on vacation with his family as a kid- he was around 8-10 years old at the time. They're at the hotel room at the end of the day, and his older brother (who would have been 10-12) wants to watch There's Something About Mary./i> on PPV. They all agree to watch it, and they get to the scene with the semen in the hair. My friend is too young to understand what's going on, and he asks, "What's in her hair?" Without missing a beat, dad replies, "Menatsi".

Not my parent, but my teenage cousin took her mom shopping at a record store in the late '70s. When my cousin came up to the counter with her albums, she found that her mom had bought the cutest little bookmark in a display case. It had a metal clip to hold the page, with lovely feathers and beads attached. We laughed about that for next few years.

When I was 12 maybe my church every Sunday Catholic dad and I rented Kentucky Fried movie because we loved Police Squad, but the box didn't give a rating. He stopped it at "Catholic High School girls in trouble."

A couple of years later my mom took me to Meaning of Life, we laughed through it all.

Oh god it was 2004. I was asked if I minded foreign movies(non English). I said yeah I don't mind them. Mom said okay this movie about revenge sounds cool. The movie in question was Irreversible. *face palms*

My parents are divorced so I got two awkward pop culture moments for the price of one!

Mom: She walked in during the sex scene between Tom Cruise and Elisabeth Shue in Cocktail.

Dad: Rented Police Academy, not knowing about the boobies on the beach at the beginning. I don't think I've ever seen him move faster than when he grabbed the remote to fast forward the video tape.

If we including friends, I made the mistake of convincing a friend to see Million Dollar Baby on DVD shortly after her dad was diagnosed with ALS. The final half hour or so was torture for her. She still hasn't forgiven me for that. In retrospect, that was pretty stupid of me to tell her to see it; I had already seen it theaters and was telling everyone to see it.

As a kid, was watching In Living Color while extremely Catholic mom was also in the living room. An Andrew Dice Clay sketch came on, which was mostly censor beeps, came on, and she was not pleased.

I'm going to really pre-date all of you.I was in high school when Peyton Place was made into a tv
serial.Trying to do homework at the dining room table and pay attention to the show,without getting caught.
Very forbidden topics for tv at that time.
Even further back,seeing (from the backseat at the drive-in) the pre-views for All About Eve starring Brigot Bardot.The skirt dropping scene I can still see in my mind today.
An age of innocence compared to today.

When I was in 10th grade (at a public HS in very conservative St. Charles MO) our non-Western cultures teacher decided to show us Shogun toward the end of the year. This was the VHS version with the bewbies. The teacher didn't pay very close attention and the nudity went un-interrupted until a classmate very slowly said "Heyyy, this is school!" Hilarious.
