Sylvester Stallone gave up movie sex after getting disgustingly hot and heavy with Sharon Stone in 1994 for The Specialist. According to this link, his reasons are purely love-oriented. His wife, Jennifer Flavin, doesn't believe you can act a sex scene without emotion and wanted him to stop. So, because Sly loves Jenny, he did. Happily.

See, if that story were about anybody other than Sylvester Stallone, it would be incredibly sweet! An "awww" moment, even. I'm not sure why, but coming from him I roll my eyes and am amused. Maybe because it's Sylvester Stallone. Rambo. Rocky. And maybe because the actress he last did a steamy onscreen naked romp with is Sharon Stone. And maybe because it was THE SPECIALIST.

Cut to inappropriately-placed and totally-out-of-context quote from actor Rupert Everett's The Daily Mail article about Sharon now: "How long does it take you to turn a straight man gay?" I whispered. "Silence on the set," shouted another assistant.
"About ten seconds in some cases," murmured Sharon. "And . . . action!" said the director. And in and out we went. Real slow.
