What are the best sex addiction movies? Before we list out the films, let’s look into the topic of sex and why filmmakers choose to explore it. Sex in one form or another has always been an integral part of movies. Although, usually, sex is shown as an extension of romance, rarely movies are made “about” sex (don’t we already have porn?). Basically, sex movies are uncommon. So, when filmmakers choose to make a film about sex, it more often than not deals with some form of sexual affliction. Among all the sexual afflictions, it seems like sex addiction is the one that’s most commonly addressed. So without further ado, here is the list of top movies about sex addiction. You can stream several of these best sex addiction movies on Netflix, Hulu or Amazon Prime.
10. Thanks For Sharing (2012)
‘Thanks For Sharing’ is not a sex movie precisely. It is the story of three disparate characters who are learning to face a challenging and often confusing world as they struggle together against a common demon: sex addiction. Even though the film is actually a romantic comedy, the shadow of characters’ past — of sex addiction — looms large throughout. Overall, a great one-time watch.
‘Thanks for Sharing’ is certainly not the best movie on the list but it’s a movie that deserves to be mentioned and appreciated for the bold choices it makes. One of the biggest issues with the film is its struggle to balance the dramatic and comedic elements, which results in the film not having a distinctive tone. The performances, however, are quite good. Both Mark Ruffalo and Gwyneth Paltrow are impressive and they try their best to mask the inherent flaws of the film.
