Y Tu Mamá También

Director: Alfonso Cuarón

Writer: Alfonso Cuarón, Carlos Cuarón

Cast: Maribel Verdú, Gael García Bernal, Diego Luna, Daniel Giménez Cacho

Written and directed by Alfonso Cuarón (Gravity), Y Tu Mamá También is a stunning Mexican drama that stars Gael García Bernal and Diego Luna as two teenage friends who embark on a road trip, and are unexpectedly joined by a young married woman (Maribel Verdú), which makes all the difference. The trips means different things for each of them (escape, coming-of-age, an exploration of sexuality), but on a macro level, it showcases (visually and through narration) the realities of late-90s, rural Mexico, as well as historical footnotes and commentary. Y Tu Mamá También is occasionally difficult and bittersweet, and filmed in a documentary-realist style that only deepens the truths about love, friendship, sexuality, politics, and more that it betrays. But mostly the film is emotional, gorgeously filmed, and very sexy. (In fact, because of its portrayal of sex and drug use, the film was released as unrated in the U.S. to avoid a NC-17 marker). — Allison Keene

Blue Is the Warmest Color

This entry originally appeared in our Best Movies on Netflix article.

Director: Abdellatif Kechiche

Writers: Abdellatif Kechiche and Ghalia Lacroix

Cast: Léa Seydoux and Adèle Exarchopoulos

While Blue Is the Warmest Color got plenty of press for its explicit sex scenes and the subsequent rift between its stars and director, the film remains an epically intimate portrait of love that is among the most engrossing and effective romances of all time. The movie tracks the life of a young woman named Adele (Adèle Exarchopoulos), who falls in love with another girl (Léa Seydoux) while in high school and develops a complex and deeply emotional relationship. This is a deeply felt love drama that, while long, feels wholly complete and personal. Exarchopoulos turns in a brilliant lead performance that deserved much more recognition upon release, and the cinematography is hauntingly beautiful. If you’re in the mood for a love story that feels real, human, and epic, go for Blue Is the Warmest Color – Adam Chitwood

Newness

Director: Drake Doremus

Writer: Ben York Jones

Cast: Nicholas Hoult, Laia Costa, Courtney Eaton, Jessica Henwick, and Matthew Grey Gubler

Newness is a movie made for the Netflix and Chill era, as it takes a microscope to the world of online dating and casual hookups. Nicholas Hoult and Laia Costa play a pair of twentysomethings who meet in New York City on a dating app, and soon thereafter begin a somewhat open relationship. The ups and downs and all that entails care chronicled in intimate detail by Like Crazy filmmaker Drake Doremus, and while this is very much a 21st Century Love Story at heart, it’s quite, uh, steamy getting there. – Adam Chitwood

Sleeping with Other People

Writer/Director: Leslye Headland

Cast: Allison Brie, Jason Sudeikis, Adam Scott, Adam Brody, Billy Eichner, Amanda Peet, Jason Mantzoukas, Natasha Lyonne

Take your standard rom-com format, make the leads extra messed up, turn the sexy factor up several notches and you’ve got Leslye Headland‘s Sleeping with Other PeopleAllison Brie and Jason Sudeikis co-star as two monogamy-challenged peas in a pod who reunite in a sex addicts anonymous meeting years after losing their virginity to each other. Naturally, they proceed to drive each other nuts, fall in love and all that sweet stuff that makes for a good romantic comedy, except Sleeping with People has a bit more of an edge. There’s a sizzling undercurrent of sex appeal thanks to Sudeikis and Brie’s shared charm, confidence, and chemistry, but Headland also overtly amps up the carnal factor at every turn with sensual depictions of female pleasure, a biologically specific masturbation tutorial, and a whole lot of Allison Brie channeling her inner Khaleesi in bathing suits and lingerie. However, unlike some of the more explicit or dramatic movies on this list, Sleeping with Other People is a familiar romantic comedy, just way sharper, more foul-mouthed and way hotter. — Haleigh Foutch

Set It Up

Director: Claire Scanlon

Writer: Katie Silberman

Cast: Zoey Deutch, Glen Powell, Lucy Liu, and Taye Diggs

If you’re looking for a charming romantic comedy, but don’t want to rewatch something from a previous decade for the umpteenth time, you should definitely give Claire Scanlon’s charming Set It Up a look. The plot follows two beleaguered assistants (Zoey Deutch and Glen Powell) who decided to set up their bosses (Lucy Liu and Taye Diggs, respectively) in order to just get some precious free time away from their demanding jobs. However, with all their scheming, they start to fall for each other. You can see the romcom beats coming from a mile away, but they’re done so well and so effectively that you won’t mind. Plus, the film sizzles thanks to the outstanding performances from the dazzling Deutch and Powell, who should be the streaming generation’s Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks. – Matt Goldberg

Love

Writer/Director: Gaspar Noé

Cast: Aomi Muyock, Karl Glusman, Klara Kristin

GULP. Love certainly isn’t for the meek or sexually squeamish. Gaspar Noé brings his signature uncensored style to an intensely intimate and even more intensely graphic love story about “sexual sentimentality” and all the tangled emotions, lies, and heartbreak that come with that. One of the most provocative movies in recent memory, Love features unsimulated sex between its cast and was filmed in 3D, including a shot of semen directly at the camera. Unfortunately, the Noé’s love story is mired down by undercooked characters and cliched dramatics, but if you’re looking for something ultra NSFW, with some of the literally and emotionally realitic sex scenes in cinema, Love is about as steamy as it gets. — Haleigh Foutch

365 Days

Director: Barbara Bialowas, Tomasz Mandes

Writers: Tomasz Klimala, Barbara Bialowas (screenplay associate), Tomasz Mandes (screenplay associate), Blanka Lipinska (screenplay associate/based on the novel by)

Cast: Michele Morrone, Anna Maria Sieklucka, Bronislaw Wroclawski, Otar Saralidze, Magdalena Lamparska, Natasza Urbanska

Move over, every other sexy movie on this list, because there’s a new kid on the block named 365 Days and it’s perhaps the sexiest thing to ever land on Netflix. Ever.

Arriving on Netflix in June, the Polish feature (originally titled 365 dni) is adapted from the first book in a steamy adult romance novel series from author Blanka Lipinska. 365 Days tells the story of Laura (Anna Maria Sieklucka), a young Polish woman who Massimo (Michele Morrone), the head of a Sicilian crime family, believes is the same woman who saved his life during a deal gone wrong months ago. When Massimo spies Laura at a bar while she is vacationing in Sicily for her birthday, he makes the decision to separate Laura and keep her for 365 days to see if she will fall in love with him.

Now, look, I know that this plot sounds deeply problematic; it definitely starts that way. Luckily, through Laura’s perspective, 365 Days addresses just how messed up it is for Massimo to kidnap her and keep her at his palazzo for a whole-ass year. And while you will experience a few more “Hey, that’s kinda fucked up!” moments as you watch, it’s really hard (heh) not to be hella turned on by Massimo and Laura’s chemistry. It’s very easy to be charmed by the glamor and Eurotrash wealth porn of Massimo’s life as a young, hot, super jacked Italian mafia don (Christian Grey who?). As the movie busies itself charming you with the fantasy of this life, it also cleverly crafts the cat-and-mouse game of seduction he and Laura play with one another. This, in turn, just makes them a great couple to watch develop. When it comes to the sex scenes, 365 Days gives Pornhub a run for its money with the very visceral, steamy situations Massimo and Laura find themselves in as their relationship progresses. Their BDSM-filled sexcapades the stuff of pure spank bank fantasy, ranging from fooling around in the shower to full-on yacht sex with enough thrusting and hair-pulling to keep your eyes glued to the screen.

Seriously, cancel any plans you have, watch 365 Days right now, and thank me later. - Allie Gemmill
