Avatar's Deleted Sex Scene, Straight From the Script
If you think the Vatican hates Avatar now, just imagine how much they would have liked the original version of the movie that included pre-marital tentacle sex! Now, fortunately, you can: The movie's deleted sex scene between Neytiri and Jake is included in James Cameron's full script, which 20th Century Fox has posted online.

Yes. It is our way.
Oh. I forgot to tell?
He rouses up, making her look at him.
Really, we are?
It's cool. I'm there.
He lays his head down, and her arms enfold him, sheltering him as he sleeps.
