The internet is full of sex. There are sexy pictures, sexy videos, and, of course, porn.(opens in new tab) But sometimes you want to watch something provocative(opens in new tab) without seeing straight-up porn.
When you want to watch something that’s definitively NSFW, but not quite PornHub, when you’re looking for steamy content, but not just intercourse, there are certain mainstream movies that land right in that sweet-spot.
For your sexy-but-not-porn viewing pleasure, we’ve collected some of the sexiest and most sensual movies that mainstream cinema has ever gifted to the world. From Stanley Kubrick’s anonymous sex orgy party classic Eyes Wide Shut to the very different mainstream accounts of real-life BDSM kink in Fifty Shades of Grey and Secretary to scorching hot LGBTQ+ love stories like Blue Is the Warmest Color and Call Me By Your Name
these movies epitomize the best kinds of sexy Hollywood has ever been able to muster. Yes, they have nudity and sex (sometimes just implied, sometimes, um, let’s just say very strongly implied), but they also have amazing stories and, in many cases, top notch writing, directing, and acting, too—all courtesy of true A-list talent, no less.
