The 9 Most Sexy Movies on Netflix
Below, we list the sexiest movies you can stream on Netflix, you may want to open a window – it gets a little steamy.
1. Young & Beautiful (2013)
A French drama about a young woman working as a prostitute and exploring her relationships with men outside of her work. Instead of focusing on the grittier aspects of prostitution, this film focuses on sensuality, exploration, and coming of age. The heroine is not a victim. Rather, she’s a young woman exploring the power of her sexuality, and the dangerous thrill of living a double life.
2. Basic Instinct (1992)
This thriller was scandalous when it first came out in 1992. Anyone remember that famous leg-crossing scene? Sharon Stone stars as Catherine Trammel, a beautiful and sexually insatiable novelist. Michael Douglas is the homicide detective, investigating her boyfriend’s brutal murder. Sparks fly. But at what price? Truly one of the most sexy movies on Netflix right now.
3. Blue is the Warmest Color (2013)
This multiple award winner is another French film, and another coming of age story. Blue is the Warmest Color follows the course of a young woman’s first lesbian relationship, from attraction to exploration, and beyond. It’s sexy and sensual, but it’s also a romantic drama with a thoughtful plot.
4. Up in the Air (2009)
George Clooney brings all of his sexy superpowers to this film, and he and Vera Farmiga burn up the screen. But behind the wisecracking and smolder, this is a film about relationships. New relationships, strained relationships, one-sided relationships, and relationships in transition. Sexy, yes. Romantic, yes. But it’s a great story, too.
5. Magic Mike (2012)
This comedy-drama follows the adventures of Mike (Channing Tatum), an aspiring entrepreneur, who starts working as a stripper to earn extra money. Soon, he finds himself seduced by the money and hard-partying lifestyle. And when he tries to get out, he finds it harder than he thought it would be. Lots of beefcake on display, but lots of laughs as well. Another one of the most sexy movies on Netflix.
6. Rent (2005)
This is a film adaptation of Jonathan Larson’s Pulitzer Prize-winning rock opera about a group of young artists living in New York City in the early 1990s. The characters experiment with drugs and sexuality as they struggle with life on the edge. Sexy, romantic, and a great story with great music.
7. Summertime (2015)
This French-Belgian romance is set in the early 1970s. A young woman, who grew up in the French countryside, moves to Paris. There, she meets a beautiful French feminist and begins a relationship with her. Taut, enchanting, thoughtful, and memorable. And one of the most touching and sexy movies on Netflix.
8. Wetlands (2013)
This German film stomps on the boundaries of “sexy.” Critics have called it “gleefully vulgar,” and the main character explores sexual taboos with irreverence and wit. Variety Magazine says, “Director David Wnendt and breakout star Carla Juri leave no bodily orifice unexplored.”
9. Y Tu Mama También (2001)
In this award-winning Mexican film from director Alfonso Cuaron, two young men go on a road trip with a woman, and begin a relationship with her…and with each other. It’s a coming of age story, a road trip story, and a story of sexual discovery all rolled up into one. And it’s hot hot hot.
