So 365 Days gave you a taste for straight-up erotica. Lucky you, there’s more where that came from—though none of it involves a kidnapping mafioso as the romantic lead. 365 Days can keep that dubious distinction. Anyway, let’s get to it: Here are five other steamy movies you can watch on Netflix right now.
Gaspar Noé’s provocative film captured a lot of attention when it came out in 2015. It does not shy away from anything, really, except maybe depth of character. The film stars Aomi Muyock, Karl Glusman, and Klara Kristin, who really put themselves out there with un-simulated, graphic sex scenes.
2. 'Below Her Mouth'
In a refreshing move, director April Mullen got an all-female crew onboard for this film, which follows the love affair between Dallas (Erika Linder) and Jasmine (Natalie Krill). The story is steamy, for sure, but also offers an honest depiction of queer female sexuality.
Your fantasy probably doesn’t involve slogging through dating apps and monotonous, casual hook-ups. The same goes for the couple in Newness (Nicholas Hoult and Laia Costa), who finally leave that behind to embark on a passionate love affair. But the movie isn’t an ode to hetero domestic bliss; instead, it holds an open conversation about what it takes to keep a sexual relationship alive.
4. 'Blue Is the Warmest Color'
It would have been hard for you to miss Blue is the Warmest Color when it came out in 2013. It was the talk of the town at Cannes for its very open treatment of the sex scenes. But the film, starring Léa Seydoux and Adèle Exarchopoulos, is also a beautifully executed and emotionally compelling romance.
5. 'Y Tu Mamá También'
Directed by Alfonso Cuaron, Y Tu Mamá También takes viewers on a coming-of-age road trip, starring Gael Garcia Bernal and Diego Luna as teenage friends who strike up a complicated relationship with a twenty-something woman.
