"Sex and Lucia" ("Lucía y el sexo"; lit. "Lucía and the Sex") is a 2001 Spanish drama film, written and directed by Julio Medem, and starring Paz Vega and Tristán Ulloa. Paz Vega performed explicit handjob in a sex scene of the film. [ [] ]


The movie opens with Lorenzo (Tristán Ulloa) in a casual sex encounter with a woman named Elena. They part ways, expecting to never see each other again.

The next scene has Lucía (Paz Vega) at work as a waitress, taking time off to attend to Lorenzo after a disconcerting phone call with him. Upon arriving home, Lucía looks frantically for Lorenzo, finally receiving a phone call from the police who mention that Lorenzo has been involved in a car accident. Looking for perspective, Lucía decides to travel to the mysterious island where Elena and Lorenzo met.

The movie breaks to six years earlier. Lucía waits for Lorenzo at a restaurant. Upon catching his attention, she reveals curtly that since reading his book she has been shadowing him, completely obsessed and hopelessly in love. An interested Lorenzo pursues the relationship. As the past plays out, we see Lorenzo repeatedly stalling for time on his new book to his editor while Lorenzo and Lucía's relationship deepens. Lorenzo learns that he has a daughter as a result of his casual sexual encounter and begins to visit her at her school while meeting her babysitter Belén. Lorenzo uses his new encounters as content for his book. Lucía reads it, thinking it to be fiction.

In the present, Lucía meets a stranger Carlos and through him, Elena, who becomes her landlady. As the past is revealed the characters cope with its significance in the present.


The film soon became an international success, winning Paz Vega a Goya Award (the Spanish equivalent to the American Oscar) for Best Female Newcomer.
