9 Songs is a 2004 British film, directed by Michael Winterbottom. The title refers to the nine songs played by eight different rock bands that complement the story of the film.

The film was controversial on its original release due to its sexual content, which included unsimulated footage of the two leads having sexual intercourse and performing oral sex as well as a scene of ejaculation. According to the Guardian, 9 Songs was the most sexually explicit mainstream film to date, largely because it includes several scenes of real sexual acts between the two lead actors. Margo Stilley's role is highly unusual in that she had unsimulated and very graphic sex with her co-star Kieran O'Brien, including genital fondling, female masturbation, with and without a vibrator, penetrative vaginal sex, cunnilingus and fellatio. During a scene in which Stilley masturbates his penis with her hand after performing fellatio on him, he became one of very few actors who have been shown ejaculating in a mainstream, UK produced feature. Due to the controversy, Stilley asked that director Michael Winterbottom refer to her simply by her character's name in interviews about the film.
