17 Sexiest Movies on Netflix
Everyone has a favorite genre: comedy, romance, horror. Those are, of course, the popular ones—or at least the most commonly checked fields when making polite conversation. But there's another element that, one way or another, we're all seeking out, all the time. Sexiness. Movies that evoke the all-too-often taboo topics of intimacy and attraction and lust. These works exist beyond the confines genre, because sex is pervasive; it has a way of making its way into all parts of our lives.
So, anyway, let's get on to what you want: the sexiest films currently available to stream on Netflix. Don't try to put sex in a box (though, there's probably a movie where someone has tried to do just that). There's something below for everyone. Embrace it. And once you're finished here, be sure to check out our list of the sexiest films ever made.
This queer-adjacent movie is also a thriller, a satire, and perhaps a touch of a horror film? It also features way more skin than it should be allowed to, but it works.
Malcolm & Marie
