25 Most Sexually Graphic Movies on Netflix

Does Netflix have porn? Well, the answer is an obvious no. While there are certainly many R-rated and even NC-17 rated movies on Netflix, you won’t find films that are classified porn, because frankly, the MPAA hasn’t created a category for a film to be labelled as one. But let’s be honest with ourselves. Most of these porn movies are grotesque and are seemingly impractical at the outset. And if you are really in the mood to get horny, a sexy film is a better choice than an outright porn. The most important thing that porn movies often ignore but has been picked up really well by erotic filmmakers is essentially the imagination. While porn leaves nothing to your imagination, there’s still a lot of scope in an erotic R-rated or TV-MA movie.

Not only these are the most sensuous, erotic and sultriest movies on Netflix, they also showcase ample nudity to satiate one’s horniest desires. Because Netflix US has only so many movies with a lot of nudity, we’ve brought to you the best which are a must watch for those who seek to douse those deep dark urges.

25. Adore (2013)

With hotties like Naomi Watts and Robin Wright in leading roles, ‘Adore’ is the story of a pair of childhood friends and old neighbours who fall for each other’s sons. A story that borders on being incestuous, ‘Adore’ might probably leave you feeling uncomfortable at many points. The film has lately been known to develop a cult following, although it has been widely panned by critics as being “trashy” and “absurd” with an unbelievable plot and overly done script. On the other hand, there were a few critics who praised it for being provocative, novel and also for its casting. Apples and Oranges I’d say.

24. Much Loved (2015)

A film which was engulfed in controversies in Morocco, the country where it originated from, ‘Much Loved’ addresses the rampant prostitution and the evils associated with it in the nation in a very crude and straightforward manner. Starring Loubna Abidar, a top Moroccan actress in a leading role, the movie revolves around the group of three women of who Noah is the apparent queen. While at “work”, they are treated as mere objects, their personal lives aren’t paradises either. Whereas Noah’s family is on the verge of becoming broke, her mother too treats her shabbily – on one end while she ostracises the evils of prostitution, she tends to keep herself happy with the money that comes from Noah’s flesh trade. Though the instances of sex and nudity are not explicit, the story is written in a way to invigorate which perhaps is the best thing about ‘Much Loved’.

23. Unfreedom (2014)

Indian film ‘Unfreedom’ too faced many controversies and has been permanently banned for release in India. A lesbian drama at the outset, ‘Unfreedom’ has two parallel storylines set in New York and New Delhi respectively. While in the NYC, the focus rests on Islamic fundamentalism and the so-called battle between liberals and the terrorists, the New Delhi plot covers LGBTQ issues wherein a lesbian girl tries to break free and run away to her girlfriend while her defiant father sticks to his guns. Powerful performances, crude depictions of sex scenes, sexual assaults etc. and the fact that it was banned in India proved to be great impetuses to make the film known around many circles. And yes, it is available on Netflix.

22. Newness (2017)

Martin and Gabriella meet each other over a dating app. Instead of hooking up, while they get to know each other, Gabriella comes to know that Martin was married earlier whereas Martin learns that Gabriella has had physical intimate relationships before. They both agree to form an open relationship, but eventually, Gabriella comes to know about Martin’s ailing mother and daughter and feels cheated. Alas, both separate and start new relationships, while still in contact with each other and meeting over for threesomes etc. (yes, you heard that right). After a string of relationships, they eventually reconcile and promise not to separate again. As simplistic as the storyline sounds, there is a certain amount of sensuality and passion in ‘Newness’ which makes it stand out.

21. Sex, Shame and Tears (1999)

As obvious as the title of the movie is, so is the storyline. A Mexican movie by director Antonio Serrano, this coming-of-age film is the narrative of three couples – two on the younger side and another couple on the older side. While the couple across the street have the same old marital problems, another couple Miguel and Andrea are intimidated by a visiting friend who instigates Miguel’s feelings for her and raises questions on his fidelity. Although the depiction of the relationships is implied, they essentially are sexual in nature and there are ample references for male and female nudity in the film to keep you going. Additionally, ‘Sex, Shame and Tears’ went on to become one of the highest grossing Mexican films of the decade.

20. The Little Death (2014)

A film touted as hilarious, sexy, heartwarming to the core, ‘The Little Death’ surrounds five couples living in a suburb and their wild, crazy fetishes which they often share among each other. There are depictions of foot fetish, phone sex, role playing etc. in the movie, along with the ill-effects of one couple sharing their fetishes with other couples. Although this is a movie based on another Spanish film ‘Kiki, Love to Love’, no wonder ‘The Little Death’ is far more erotic and ravishing than its inspiration, thanks to actor-director Josh Lawson. However, there is no explicit nudity in the film (that’s the best part) and all the emotions are conveyed through facial expressions and body language, thus giving subtle hints of eroticism.

19. Carol (2015)

Enter the enchanting setting of New York’s early 1950’s and the difficult yet powerful world of this romantic drama directed by Todd Haynes. It revolves around the love story between two women, who come from very different backgrounds, not to mention the era they are living in. If things still aren’t as equal as they should be nowadays, it’s not hard to imagine how it was 60 years ago. Therese (Rooney Mara) is a simple young aspiring photographer working at a department store and Carol (Cate Blanchett) is an older glamorous woman in the midst of a heavy divorce. They meet and a connection is felt that will slowly transform into a serious affair leading to intimate and sexual interactions. However, their situations make it difficult and conflicts start to occur. A beautiful story that goes through with such elegance and purity, ‘Carol’ deserves everybody’s attention and a chance to be emotionally marveled and visually consumed.

18. Spread (2009)

Before we start, it would be interesting to note that ‘Spread’ was renamed seven more times for its release in different countries and the most notable of them all – ‘L.A. Gigolo’ for limited release in the Scandinavian countries. Ashton Kutcher plays Nikki, a gigolo and a self-loathing, mostly homeless guy who is often jumping from one hook-up to another. As the name suggests, Nikki hops from one woman to another, satiating her sexual needs until Samantha comes into the picture. Unable to keep up with any relationships, Nikki moves on from Samantha to Heather and back to Samantha again, only to realize she has been long gone. Towards the end, we see Nikki finding another job to live a more “dignified” life.

17. Bad Match (2017)

Harris is an online stalker and pervert who visits dating websites and apps to have one-night stands and open relationships. After his daylong futilities, he goes on the prowl to find women to answer his innermost desires, until he meets Riley online. While his other victims might have ignored Harris’ evil plans or sometimes wouldn’t even have known about him, Riley pulls up her sleeves to hit back at Harris – an affair that proves very costly for the latter. As far as the graphic sequences of the movie are concerned, ‘Bad Match’ doesn’t go very far away with explicit nudities but most of the things remain implied. Watch this revenge thriller on Netflix if you’re bored with the same old cliched movies with graphic nudity.

16. Tiger, Blood in the Mouth (2016)

If only one could’ve thought of adding some pound storyline to the movie, ‘Tiger, Blood in the Mouth’ could’ve been an erotic masterpiece. Alas, the movie revolves around Ramon, an ageing professional boxer, who, after a decorated career is seeking retirement to tend to his wife and children, but doesn’t want to quit boxing. Enter a fierce, young boxer Deborah who instigates Ramon not to quit and keep up with his career, while they develop a deeply physical, lustful relationship. Immediately after their first sex scene, there seems to be a paradigm shift of the script from being logic oriented to lust oriented. Regardless, the nudity is ubiquitous in the movie and so is the sensuality which is rampant. ‘Tiger, Blood in the Mouth’ feels like soft porn after a while.

15. Immoral Tales (1973)

Long before graphic nudity was cool and normal, ‘Immoral Tales’ made its entry, perhaps one of the firsts, into the erotic film sub-genre without being labelled as porn. A French movie at the outset, ‘Immoral Tales’ is divided into four chapters (don’t ask me why). and seemingly every chapter depicts a taboo or something that could be considered immoral within the civil society. With incestuous sex, fetishes, bloodbath (from the blood of younger girls to attain youth) to name a few, ‘Immoral Tales’ more or less stands up to its name. As intriguing as it may sound, back in the 1970’s ‘Immoral Tales’ was criticized as one of the weakest and “wretched” works of director Walerian Borowczyk who was earlier known for his cinematic ingenuity.

14. Zipper (2015)

‘Zipper’ primarily revolves around a prosecutor and an aspiring Attorney General Sam Ellis who cheats on his wife with an escort and tries to hide from the world as a perverse man, rather projects himself as a man with morally upright intentions. As his addictions to the escorts soar, he resorts to desperate measures to save his repute, along with his family’s. ‘Zipper’ although has a predictable subject involving unfaithfulness and sex addiction, leaving Patrick Wilson’s performance aside, the story falls flat and was also criticized for being indecisive and unconvincing. There are scenes of masturbation, sex inside vehicles and many similar references if that’s what you’re looking for.

13. Kama Sutra: A Tale of Love (1996)

The classic Indian tale of love and passion based on a novel titled “Utran” (as opposed to the common notion that the plot has been derived from Vatsyayana’s Kama Sutra), ‘Kama Sutra: A Tale of Love’ is set in 16th century India between a host of characters, most importantly, Tara and Maya. While Tara is a high-born, Maya is her zealous servant and both have grown up together since their childhood days. As they are on the cusp of adulthood, Tara grows wary of Maya because Maya is more beautiful than her and also a better dancer. After Tara is married to Prince Raj, the latter lusts for Maya instead, and there starts the conflict between friends turned foes. ‘Kama Sutra: A Tale of Love’ wins on many aspects as a story and stands out as the only mainstream movie on the subject till date. I am sure you’d have either heard of it or have already watched it multiple times.

12. Under the Skin (2013)

The tragic tale of an alien who has descended upon earth to lure single males into a void and then harvests their organs is worth your time and attention. Sure, the movie has a lot of nudity and also graphic sexuality, but they are only to boost the whole narrative. Scarlett Johansson undoubtedly gives a performance of her lifetime by uttering only a few words and the film is an eternal masterpiece that’s difficult to decipher, for all of our perspectives are different. In what can be called as a clear departure from regular alien movies, ‘Under the Skin’ deals with the subject in a much more sensitive and thought-provoking manner. You can peruse the “Under the Skin: Explained” article should you want to know what the movie is all about.

11. Suntan (2016)

A film that might very well work among the middle-aged men who will find their fantasies come alive on-screen when a middle-aged doctor falls for a young and beautiful tourist. Slowly, he gets obsessed with her and goes out of his way to conquer and impress her. Kostis starts spending nearly all of his time getting drunk, partying hard, and even making out with Anna. He is willing to do whatever it takes to keep his Anna. The film is a painful study of what it means to be no longer young.

10. The Reader (2008)

Perhaps one of the most important and pathbreaking movies of Kate Winslet in recent times, a performance which also landed her at the Academy Awards pedestal, thus registering her first win ever, ‘The Reader’ is set in the 1950’s Germany and is the narrative of Michael Berg, a lawyer in the present day and Hanna Schmitz, a woman Michael had an affair with, as a teenager. While Hanna disappears during all those years, she had to reappear for a trial to answer for the war crimes she allegedly had committed. The movie’s sensuality and eroticism come from the physical relationship between a teenager and a middle-aged woman which grows into an obsession. With depictions of frontal nudity and sex sequences, ‘The Reader’ has to be one of the boldest roles portrayed by Winslet, if not the boldest.

9. Jailbait (2014)

In this erotic drama which depicts sex crimes in the crudest manner possible, Sara Malakul Lane portrays Anna Nix, a girl who has been sentenced to prison for murdering her stepdad. Her time in jail follows a typical ‘Orange is the New Black’ kind of storyline with drugs, sex, homosexual relationships, sexual assaults and rapes, mental instability and insecurities within the facility becoming a way of life for Anna and her prison mates. There are a plenty of sex scenes in the movie that narrate Anna’s ordeal from an outsider’s perspective. ‘Jailbait’ essentially uses sex as a bait to lure the audiences in, if you think about it.

8. Fragments of Love (2016)

Susana and Isaias are soon getting married to each other. Rodrigo is a pianist and unemployed, also a friend of Isaias and attracted to Susana. As Susana and Rodrigo grow into a closer relationship, she narrates her love affairs with him every time they meet, thus instigating his jealousy towards the men she had been with. The jealousy would hinder his creativity and would not let him perform on the bed either. As Rodrigo’s paranoia soars day by day, he implores Susana to be with him instead of his friend Isaias. Paranoia soon turns into insecurity once Susana begins a permanent relationship with Rodrigo. Because the movie ‘Fragments of Love’ is based out on infidelity, sexual relationships and ex-boyfriends, there is no dearth of explicit sex or nudity. Are you game for it?

7. Below Her Mouth (2016)

Many critics have called ‘Below Her Mouth’ a “masturbation material” rather than a movie and it is no surprise to us because there’s a host of sexual encounters depicted in the movie which show up every other minute during the movie’s playtime. The plot is simple – two women meet each other and form an intimate sexual relationship, something which is quite evident from the very first scene of the movie. Leaving the critics’ comments aside, ‘Below Her Mouth’ moves about like a headless chicken without any direction to the plot or any depth in the characterizations. The only reason why it is on this list is due to its explicit graphic nudity, which is perhaps a notch lesser than ‘Blue is the Warmest Colour’ (albeit the latter had a pound storyline and great character depth).

6. Sex and Lucia (2001)

If nudity is your thing, Lucia might be your film. Jokes aside, this film is the real deal. It tells the story of Lucía, a young waitress in a restaurant in the centre of Madrid, who seeks refuge on a quiet, secluded Mediterranean island after the loss of her long-time boyfriend. There, bathed in an atmosphere of fresh air and dazzling sun, Lucía begins to discover the dark corners of her past relationship. It is a film that’s not only visually striking but also morally complex with characters that are layers deep.

5. Y Tu Mamá También (2001)

‘Y Tu Mama Tambien’ is without question one of the best films on this list. It is quite simply one of the most emotionally charging cinematic experiences I’ve ever had. The film tells the story of two teenage boys who take a road trip with a married woman. Besides the sexiness, there is a whole lot of sadness and pain behind the sheer energy and liveliness of the film. Alfonso Cuaron captures Mexico in all its colour and eccentricities and turns the film into a more profound, melancholic exploration of flailing human relationships and self-discovery.

4. Love (2015)

If there’s one film on this list that clearly qualifies as a softcore porn it is this. Gasper Noe’s erotic 3D venture follows the lives of three eligible bachelors with a perennial penchant for adventures. The titillating drama opens up with a racy and sensual threesome amongst a pair of experienced ex-lovers, Murphy and Electra, and a fledgeling novice exchange student from Denmark, Omi. The film ruffled feathers when it was premiered at Cannes and turned heads with its raw sexual depictions and its ravishing character portrayals.

3. Eyes Wide Shut (1999)

‘Eyes Wide Shut’ is full of erotic visuals. Is it a porn? Certainly, no. While the film surely has themes that are sexually complex in nature, it has a thrilling element of surprise where audiences would not know what to expect next. It’s dream-like narrative fueled by stunning visual detail, a bravura performance from Nicole Kidman and a masterful use of Ligeti’s music, lend the film the ability to compel the audience to get lost in it. Once you have seen the film, you will find it hard to forget and recover, for its equal has never been made.

2. Nymphomaniac Vol I & II (2013)

As the name suggests, Lars von Trier’s film is full of one sexually explicit scenes after another. The two-part, five-hour-long film is a vivid exploration of self-discovery, capitalistic greed, and the addicted nymphomaniacs. The embellished venture of the film’s interchanging leads into the uncharted territory of sex addiction and subsequent finding of love that is a treat to watch. The film has several explicit and unsimulated sex scenes that take the film dangerously close to being a porn, but more or less, it is the narrative of its protagonist and the nymphomaniac Joe, a character portrayed by Charlotte Gainsbourg who is on a soul-searching spree to find true love instead of the lustful, objectifying relationships she has so far been into.

1. Blue is the Warmest Color (2013)

One 10-minutes long love-making sequence in the film trumps any other porn scene you will ever see, even for mainstream pornographic movies. That very scene exemplifies what ‘Blue is the Warmest Color’ truly is: raw and uncompromising. A film that takes a passionate look at the struggles of being a teenager Adele and her exploration of her own sexuality and orientation, Adele’s world turns upside down when she meets and falls for a blue-haired woman. It shows how an interaction with a person, any person, can have a truly provocative impact. ‘Blue Is The Warmest Colour’ is a touching ode to blossoming love, fiery passion and lasting bonds.
