While there are certainly many R-rated and even NC-17 rated movies on Hulu, 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.
Sexiness is, by definition, a very abstract word, which is sometimes perceived as nudity, naked women mostly, and sometimes, it is perceived as acts of sex and vigour. While both of these definitions are true, these are not the only factors that define sexiness. Having said that, let’s also be clear that just because these movies on this list have sexual content and sometimes graphic nudity doesn’t necessarily mean they are not good. In fact, most of the below listed Hulu movies are more than watchable. Now that we have made everything clear, let’s have a look at the list of sexiest movies on Hulu right now. And please keep in mind that many of these have been rated R or TV-MA according to the MPAA guidelines.
15. Original Sin (2001)
Perhaps one of the few handfuls of movies where Angelina Jolie did a substantial show of skin, ‘Original Sin’ never got famous for its storyline, but only for its hot sex scenes and nudity. The movie follows the story of Julia, an American girl who along with Walter a.k.a. Billy, her lover, marries and plans to con Luis, a Cuban. All goes according to plan except when Luis falls for Julia, they get married and it leads to inhibitions of both Luis and Julia to let go of each other. While the story has been termed as utterly illogical and laughable by many critics, ‘Original Sin’ has some scenes of crude sex and nudity which would get you going.

14. The Duchess of Langeais (2007)
If you love plot-driven movies then there isn’t much in here or rather the plot isn’t what makes the film worth watching. It is rather the encounters between two characters who are kind of happy keeping their feelings kind of bottle up. These characters are the French general Armand de Montriveau and the socialite Antoinette le Langeais. Antoinette is currently a nun.

Look, I will admit I have never looked at Maggie Gyllenhaal in a such a way as this movie made me do.

11. Bad Education (2004)
I know I have put this movie on this list considering it’s adult rating but I guess there wasn’t much need for that. The plot of the movie is really nice though it can feel confusing at first. There are sex scenes in the movie but I don’t think it should have received an NC-17 rating. Anyways, let’s jump into the plot. The movie is focused on two characters Ignacio Rodriguez and Enrique Goded. They went to the same Christian school. Years later Ignacio has become a struggling actor working under the stage name Angel Andrade while Enrique has become a successful filmmaker. Ignacio has brought with him a manuscript Dollsript which is loosely based on his life. He has come at the house of Enrique, a man he has not seen in years since he was expelled from school. Ignacio hopes that Enrique will turn the manuscript into a film script and casting him as one of the leads. But will everything go as planned?

10. Lucky Bastard (2014)
This is an erotic take on the found footage horror genre. Well, the movie is kinda trash if you look at it in a serious way. Personally, I thought the movie is great if you just want to watch a movie with a certain structure and filled with sex scenes which is what the movie is made for. If you want serious plots and world-class performances, then maybe skip onto the next one. Anyway, the plot of ‘Lucky Bastard’ is simple. Mike is the owner of a porn website named Lucky Bastard. His concept is that a lucky fan is chosen randomly and he gets to have sex with the sexy pornstar named Ashley Saint (this is the one part of the movie that I want to be real). Ashley doesn’t like the idea as she thinks that this is unprofessional and might be dangerous and given how the film ended she was a freaking Sherlock Holmes at deduction. After some persuasion and cash, she agrees and they invite a fan named Dave. But things go wrong on the set and Dave goes on a killing spree.

1. Vanilla Sky (2001)
It’s time for Tom Cruise to take the show now. He plays the rich playboy David Ames Jr. in the movie ‘Vanilla Sky’. Gorgeous actresses Cameron Diaz and Penelope Cruz also star in this movie.
