Below, we’ve listed over 10 movies that subscribers can watch to expand their explicit viewing horizons, so that they can investigate some of the more hot-n-heavy options on the streamer. And, when I say “hot-n-heavy” I do, indeed, mean filled with the sexytimes your gleeful little heart desires. If you're looking for something more intense than most of the offerings in this service's very extensive library, then these are the movies you need to add to your queue. Part the beaded curtain, and follow along as we list the most sexually explicit Netflix titles we could find.
Lady Chatterley’s Lover (2022)
Based, of course, on the famed 1929 novel by D.H. Lawrence (which was banned for obscenity in several countries for quite some time), the story follows Constance (Emma Corrin), whose husband is paralyzed in WWI and who then requests that his wife find someone to impregnate her so that he can have an heir.
Though angered by his request at first, she eventually finds herself taken with the gamekeeper, Oliver (Jack O’Connell), and they soon begin an affair. Look, I’ve seen a lot in my day, so believe me when I say that what goes down between Connie and Oliver throughout the film (frequently with full or near-complete nudity) surprised even my nearly unshockable sensibilities. If I were ranking the steam level of these movies, I’d have to draw a thermometer that got so hot it exploded for this one.
Madame Claude (2021)
Anyone looking for hotness that’s rooted in reality should check out Madame Claude, as it’s a biographical drama based on the life of the infamous brothel owner who rose to prominence in late 1960s Paris. Her sex workers plied their trade in an area of the city favored by many of the town’s elite, which gave her quite a bit of power over politicians and criminal figures, but that power didn’t last for very long.
In watching the successes and eventual downfall of the madam, viewers will be treated to several scenes befitting the profession that’s being investigated, but be warned, there are a few such scenes that are likely to make one uncomfortable.
When a gynecologist (Julianne Moore) suspects her college professor husband (Liam Neeson) of having an affair, she hires an escort (Amanda Seyfried) to attempt to seduce him to test his loyalty to their marriage. The idea of someone testing their partner’s fidelity to them isn’t a new one, but this erotic thriller takes the story to new heights.
High Society (2018)
This Korean drama comes from director Byun Hyuk (who also wrote the film), focuses on a young married couple (Park Hae-il and Soo Ae) who are already on an incredibly high rung on the ladder when it comes to social standing, but still seek to make it to an even more elite standing in their community, and how they will do and risk anything to get there. Not only is the sex explicit in this one, but there’s an extended scene that involves some kind of fetish that will truly keep your eyes peeled.
The 365 Days Franchise (2020-2022)
Admit it, this trilogy of Netflix original films is probably one of the things that brought you to this list. No one could really blame you, either, as the first movie, 365 Days, hit the streaming giant in the summer of 2020 and quickly became the latest steamy sensation to get users excited and keep everyone talking for a long time. For the uninitiated, the film franchise is based on the Polish novels of the same name by author Blanka Lipińska, telling the story of mafia don Massimo (Michele Morrone) and his captive love interest Laura (Anna-Maria Sieklucka).
Her captivity is a large part of the reason why this movie led many to sign a petition for its removal, but fans loved its exceedingly realistic looking sex scenes. Two sequels, 365 Days: This Day, and The Next 365 Days debuted on April 27, 2022 and August 19, 2022, respectively, and while the franchise-ending cliffhanger frustrated many fans, you can’t beat these films as a whole if you’re looking for some naughty, naked entertainment.
Duck Butter (2018)
This title, from director and co-writer Miguel Arteta, shows two young women who just met, Naima (Alia Shawkat, who co-wrote the script along with Arteta) and Sergio (Laia Costa) and then quickly decide on an intriguing relationship experiment by agreeing to spend 24 hours together and have sex every hour, literally on the hour. As you might imagine, this becomes complicated when unexpected feelings begin to arise, and each woman’s romantic baggage from the past comes firmly into view.
The Spanish film, Amar, explores a subject many people know well: young love and what happens when real life and all the trouble it can bring comes crashing into that fresh romance. Laura (María Pedraza) and Carlos (Pol Monen) are one-hundred percent in the throes of their first love with each other, and also enjoying the intensity (and experimentation) that comes with it.
But, it’s not long before life, very much, gets in the way of their idealized view of what their relationship can be as they move forward. The first 10 minutes show you exactly where these young lovers are in their romance before everything gets more difficult than they’d imagined.
Elisa & Marcela (2019)
Another movie from Spain, Elisa & Marcela is, this time, based on a true story, and follows two women (Natalia de Molina and Greta Fernández) who meet in the late 1800s and form a strong friendship. But, that bond soon turns into something much deeper, and one of them begins posing as a man so that they can legally marry. This romantic drama will tug on those ol’ heartstrings while delivering some very steamy scenes, which help make it one of the best movies on Netflix with lesbian characters, and make it one of many Netflix movies and shows with great LGBTQ+ representation.
An Easy Girl (2019)
Set on the French Riviera during a lusty summer, 16 year old Naima (Mina Farid) goes along with her free-spirited and sexually adventurous 22-year-old cousin, Sofia (Zahia Dehar), as she enjoys her partying lifestyle, which definitely involves spending time in the company of men. Watching her cousin leads Naima to realize what she values for her own life as she continues to grow up.
The After Movies (2020-2022)
Speaking of youthful dramas with sexytimes, 2020’s After We Collided and 2021’s After We Fell take things a bit further, showing us a slice of complicated romantic life for two college students. While the first film in the trilogy, 2019’s After, is not currently on the streamer, the sequels continue the story of what happened after (Get it?) sexually inexperienced Tessa (Josephine Langford) met and fell for bad boy Hardin (Hero Fiennes Tiffin) during her freshman year.
Right now, you have three hot tales of young love to watch, as the After We Fell ending set up the fourth film in the series based on Anna Todd’s best-selling books (After Ever Happy), which debuted in theaters in September of 2022 came to the streamer a few months later. Meanwhile, a fifth movie, After Everything, has already been filmed and is set to premiere at some point in 2023.
As you can see from this list, there's no lack of sensual thrills to be had here, if you know where to find them. The films we've pointed out are an amazing jumping off point for a delightful night of filmic sexual adventure, and who knows what else you'll find in the library of this streaming giant once you begin searching for these titles. Be sure to stream responsibly, however. If need be, make sure any young ones are either watching some of the best family friendly movies on Netflix or are asleep before embarking on any of these explicit viewing escapades.
