The Handmaiden (2016)
This erotic (and beautifully-shot) Amazon original is set in 1930s Korea and follows the story of Sook-Hee (Tae-ri Kim), a trained pickpocket, who takes a job as a handmaiden to Lady Hideko (Min-hee Kim) in order to rid her of her fortune. The two begin a passionate affair, and as you could guess, Sook-Hee falls madly in love with Lady Hideko. This is hands down one of the sexiest movies on Amazon Prime—or maybe even any streaming service.
Just Friends (2018)
Joris (Josha Stradowski) is a young gay man coming to terms with his father’s death. Yad (Majd Mardo), a Syrian refugee, is hired to work for Joris’s grandmother in their home. The two instantly hit it off and fall in love, but their guardians threaten to keep them apart. Honestly though? The disapproval makes it hotter.
Two lifelong friends, Roz (Robin Wright) and Lil (Naomi Watts) both have 18-year-old sons they absolutely adore. So much so that they each begin an affair with the other’s son. It’s taboo, Oedipal, and sexy—you won’t want to look away.
Original Sin (2001)
In this period piece set in Cuba, Luis (Antonio Banderas) calls for a mail-in bride from the U.S. Enter: Julia (Angelina Jolie). Their marriage is marked by passionate desire, but Julia is not who she says she is. Be prepared for some seriously erotic and sadistic scenes.
The Only Boy Living in New York (2018)
Thomas Webb (Callum Turner), a young man living in New York post-graduation, learns that his father is having an illicit affair with Johanna (Kate Beckinsale), a beautiful and seductive woman. So naturally, Thomas starts sleeping with her. This Amazon original is a little taboo, a little twisted, and a lot sexy.
A Simple Favor (2018)
This provocative, salacious thriller stars Blake Lively and Anna Kendrick, who become friends. Lively’s character goes missing, and the story turns into a pretty wild murder mystery—with plenty of steamy sex scenes along the way.
The Virgin Suicides (1999)
This voyeuristic film tells the story of a group of boys’ obsession with the Lisbon sisters, who are beautiful and sheltered, living with strict and devout parents. The sisters rebel and the story becomes one of lust, sex, repression, fantasy, terror, and death.
Two Night Stand (2014)
This movie is apt for a pandemic, given that main characters Megan (Analeigh Tipton) and Alec (Miles Teller) were supposed to only have a one-night stand, but a blizzard keeps them stuck in Alec’s apartment. The result? Brooding, fighting, and finally, figuring out how to make the sex really, really good.
Gloria Bell (2019)
Finally, a movie that acknowledges that middle-aged women lead interesting, sexual lives. This film follows Gloria Bell (Julianne Moore), a divorcee looking to get back out there. She goes to bars and clubs to let loose, until she meets Arnold (John Turturro) and begins a whirlwind, charming romance.
Step Up (2006)
Channing Tatum plays Tyler, a troublemaker from Baltimore who meets Nora (Jenna Dewan) when he’s paired with her for her ballet showcase. There’s something totally hot about a lot of sweaty people—especially a young Channing Tatum—dancing in sync. Plus, Tyler and Nora’s authentic chemistry takes it up a few notches. Don’t believe me? Give it a watch and you’ll feel things.
Her Composition (2015)
Malorie Gilman (Joslyn Jensen) is a music student who needs to compose a piece in order to graduate, but she can’t seem to clear her writer’s block. So she turns to sex work and uses her encounters with her clients for inspiration. You know, the usual.
The Escort (2016)
Mitch Cooper (Michael Donegar), a sex-addicted journalist, follows a Stanford-educated escort named Natalie (Lindsey Fonseca) for a story. The result is plenty of sexy scenes, and of course, a love story between Mitch and Natalie.
Afternoon Delight (2013)
This sexy dramedy follows Rachel (Kathryn Hahn) a rich, bored housewife who befriends a stripper named McKenna (Juno Temple). Rachel invites McKenna to be her live-in nanny, as an attempt to “save” her, but McKenna ends up showing Rachel just how fun her life could be. Lapdances and orgasms abound!
Sex and Breakfast (2007)
Two young couples (one including Macaulay Culkin) experiment with anonymous group sex to try and spice up their troubled relationships. They swap partners to try and learn more about themselves and their relationship issues. The plot is nothing special, but the fantasy aspect and the steamy sex scenes make up for it.
Black Snake Moan (2007)
Rae (Christina Ricci), has a thing for sex and partying. After one wild night, she ends up in Lazarus’s (Samuel L. Jackson) driveway, and he locks her inside his house to try and “rid her of her sin.” For most of the film, Rae doesn’t wear much, and if you’re into chains, well, you’re in for a treat.
