Entertain Yourself With These 9 Erotic Movies on Netflix
You might love Netflix for its flouncy, feel-good British shows about baking. But did you know there’s plenty of other material out there where people are whipping a sexier kind of cream into stiff peaks?
That’s right. In addition to top-tier queer content and gay-friendly anime, there are sensual and erotic movies on Netflix that are waiting to make you sweat, shimmy, and maybe send that “U up?” text you have sitting in your drafts. Let’s ratchet up the narrative and sexual tension!
Nine erotic movies to watch on Netflix
Let's face it: Sometimes, you are watching the porn for the plot. So why not pick out a movie that satiates your innermost lust while providing an actual narrative?
Starring: Alia Shawkat, Lai Costa
Rotten Tomatoes rating: 55%
This modern masturbatory masterpiece is all about female lust, love, and intimacy — and who doesn’t want to see more of that on their screens? Don’t be fooled by the mixed ratings; this film received a nomination for Best Narrative Feature at the 2018 Tribeca Film Festival, and Alia Shawkat took home the award for Best Actress.
Dissatisfied with the world of dating, Shawkat and Costa’s characters decide to spend a day together fucking and fraternizing to establish an intimacy that will transform both their lives. It’s not exactly X-rated porn, but it’s an absolute must-watch for any softcore flick lovers looking for sexy movies on Netflix to flick it to.
Starring: Madeline Brewer, Patch Darragh, Melora Walters
Rotten Tomatoes rating: 93%
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be a camgirl? While some of us can only guess what kind of life they lead, Cam takes the lifestyle to new heights with a sexual horror/mystery hybrid.
The sexy and spooky story revolves around Alice, who’s determined to make a name for herself as a camgirl — only she didn’t account for the possibility of being replaced on her own show. Who replaces her? An exact replica of herself.
In what seems like a sexy retelling of the Avril Lavigne saga that swept the internet (not actually, she’s probably definitely still alive and wasn’t maybe replaced), Cam’s fascinating combination of horny and horrifying will have your tits positively titillated.
Starring: Anna-Maria Sieklucka, Michele Morrone, Bronislaw Wroclawski
Rotten Tomatoes rating: 0%
Do critics like 365 Days? Not particularly. But that doesn’t mean you won’t love it, especially if you enjoy a hefty dose of soap opera camp in your BDSM-focused, drama-soaked romances.
The premise has certainly raised more than a few eyebrows; it involves Massimo, an Italian mafioso, kidnapping a woman and giving her a year to fall in love with him. Basically, think Beauty and the Beast crossed with trashy Wattpad smut. But if you aren’t afraid to giggle while you bite your lip, then this strange tale of passion might be for you.
Call Me By Your Name
Starring: Timothée Chalamet, Armie Hammer, Michael Stuhlbarg
Rotten Tomatoes rating: 94%
Who’s surprised this one made the list? You are on Grindr, after all.
This story about a romance between a 17-year-old student and an older man is more of a love story than anything else. It cultivates that slow burn kind of steamy while offering an excellent, in-depth look at complicated gay relationships, especially during the ’80s. And we’ll never look at peaches the same way again. Read into that what you will.
The film is raved about by critics and movie buffs alike. If you love a well-told story with some incredible acting between the mouth-watering sex scenes, Call Me By Your Name truly is a masterpiece of gay cinema and one of the best erotic movies on Netflix.
Starring: Natalie Portman, Julia Roberts, Jude Law, Clive Owen
Rotten Tomatoes rating: 68%
Now we’re cooking with gas. Four juggernauts of the silver screen come together to make one of the sexiest films in recent history. It’s a heart-pounding thriller all about two couples who can’t help but complicate each other’s lives at almost every turn.
Its dramatic flair is only outdone by some truly stunning performances from the cast. Oh, and the fact that these four hotties are always doing hot stuff with each other and/or other people. Young Jude Law and Clive Owen? You might be a little closer after watching this movie.
Starring: Julianne Moore, Liam Neeson, Amanda Seyfried
Rotten Tomatoes rating: 51%
This sexy thriller falls right around the middle of the pack in terms of ratings, but its undeniably incredible cast and gripping premise really round out the hotness factor. Julianne Moore’s character suspects her husband is being unfaithful. So naturally, she hires a call girl who tempts him to be exactly that.
You can probably see why this isn’t a great idea, but boy, does it take you for some compelling twists and turns. The relationship between the three characters gets more seductive and obsessive by the second. Suffice it to say, Chloe is an undeniably sexy movie to watch on Netflix. The tension will have you on the edge of your seat — and maybe the edge of something else.
Magic Mike XXL
Starring: Channing Tatum, Joe Manganiello, Kevin Nash, Matt Bomer
Rotten Tomatoes rating: 65%
Who needs a plot when you’re dealing with this much man meat? Well, turns out there still is one, but certainly not one you have to pay attention to.
If you’re looking for one of the top movies on Netflix that’s all about sex appeal, grinding, and pec-flexing, then Magic Mike XXL has you covered with men who are incredibly, consistently uncovered.
As a follow-up to the original tale of Magic Mike, there’s still enough charm and drama for this film to stand on its own. But if you’re just in this for the eroticism of it all, then guess what? Abs! Yeah, it might be a bit milquetoast to gravitate toward Magic Mike-esque men, but you just can’t help admiring those adonis-like figures when they’re doing their dirty dancing.
Yes, God, Yes
Starring: Natalia Dyer, Timothy Simons, Wolfgang Novogratz
Rotten Tomatoes rating: 92%
Following in the somewhat sillier footsteps of Magic Mike XXL is the comedy/drama hybrid Yes, God, Yes. Anyone who grew up with Gelly Roll pens, AOL Instant Messenger, or religious trauma will have a field day with this film.
The story revolves around a devout Catholic teenager who discovers masturbation. Good for her, right? Well, that all depends on how God feels about the whole thing. She tries desperately to reconcile her sexual urges with her fear of going to hell. Although it lacks the sex appeal of other entries on this list, the film is relatable, unique, and hilarious — an excellent reflection on what it means to discover sex, porn, and self-pleasure.
Starring: Rachel Weisz, Rachel McAdams, Alessandro Nivola
Rotten Tomatoes rating: 84%
Speaking of religious trauma, we’ve got another one for the lesbians. First of all, Rachel Weisz and Rachel McAdams are in it, so you already know you’re getting a lot of bang for your bang. But even more than that, it’s a tale of forbidden passion overcoming the boundaries of sexuality and faith.
The two Rachels play childhood friends grown up who reignite their old flame in a way they couldn’t when they were younger and up against the massive influence of their Orthodox Jewish community. One of the steamiest films on Netflix, Disobedience posits the idea that being who you are and loving who you choose is the highest power of them all.
Looking for a binge-watch partner?
Sure, partaking in erotic TV and movies can be all fun by yourself, but sometimes it’s nice to have a helping hand (or several) when the sexual tension reaches its climax. If you’re looking for someone to cuddle up next to you on the couch and watch one of these erotic films, you’ll find them on Grindr.
