It's entirely thrilling to engage in a film that stimulates you both mentally and physically.
It could be a relaxing Friday night, a lazy Sunday afternoon, or any other time in which you fancy watching something that's racy, steamy, and... well, erotic.
And so, we've rounded up the top 12 sexiest movies of all time. Needless to say, there's something in this list for everyone! Whatever floats your boat, whatever fantasy you're looking to explore, or if you're simply looking for something that'll tease and please, you'll find something saucy here to indulge in. Let's dive in?
An absolute classic, starring a young Dustin Hoffman, you'll be able to enthral yourself in all kinds of older woman fantasies. This film follows a recent college graduate on the cusp of entering true adulthood. As wild, confusing, and wonderful as it is, the lead character faces a well-known existential crisis: What are you doing with your life?
And then, in swoops an older woman who seduces him, prompting them to form a whirlwind, passionate, and enticing relationship. Their short, yet deliciously sweet encounter is so iconic, in fact, that it changed the face of pop culture forever.
This film is based on the adult fiction novel of the same name. It's a romantic drama film and follows the life of an inexperienced teen who is attracted to a fellow student slash bad boy at the start of her college career. The twist? The gentlemen she falls for has a dark secret which leads to a rocky relationship.
The erotica level in this film is arguably not so high, but it does leave one to their own devices by allowing the viewer to use their imagination. There are some racy scenes and a few polite bouts of foreplay, which may be entirely erotic for those who seek more soft sexy. And let's not forget the fact that After stars Selma Blair, which is reason enough to give it a go.
Filled with all kinds of drama, love, and lust, we see bad boy Ryan Phillippe go on a journey through multiple women, and how he comes to form a rather twisted relationship with his step sister, Sarah Michelle Gellar. There are several scenes that are hot and heavy, including that of girl-on-girl featuring Gellar and Selma Blair.
If you're a lover of 90's classics, and fancy a bit of erotic sexiness, then this film is undoubtedly a classic.
Another classic starring Nicole Kidman and Tom Cruise, Eyes Wide Shut is based on the novella Traumnovelle (Dream Story) by Arthur Schnitzler. The film is set in New York the 90's, and follows the life of a sexually-charged adventurer, Dr Bill Harford. As he discovers that his wife had contemplated an affair one year earlier, their relationship transforms, and Dr Harford is left to his own devices. What does he do? Embark on a night-long antic including a masked orgy at a secret society.
Fun fact? This film took 400 days to produce, which put it in the Guinness World Record for the longest continuous film shoot. Another fun fact? Warner Bros. Pictures edited some of the explicit scenes so that it could be rated R for cinemas.
While this film doesn't exactly educate its viewers on the real life ins and outs of a BDSM relationship, it does romanticise it in such a way that those who watch it, yearn for more. In fact, this film (adapted from the book series) prompted people all over the world to embrace their more kinky side, turning the BDSM lifestyle into a more mainstream notion.
There are currently three films of this name, 2015, 2017, and 2018. Each one stars Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan, both of whom are entirely attractive. The sexual energy and tension is rife, and it's worth a watch if you're intrigued to see a somewhat unconventional relationship bloom, along with several hot and heavy scenes.
Another film that takes a look at the BDSM lifestyle, Secretary features the gorgeous Maggie Gyllenhaal who plays a kind of misfit young lady. In it, she gets her first job working as a secretary for a man who has several kinks and sexual fantasies. Soon, the pair begin to explore their sexual urges together as Gyllenhaal learns new parts of herself, leaving her lusting after her boss.
It's safe to say that this film is way more grounded than the 50 Shades series, and has a more realistic look at the S&M scene and the relationship between a dominant and a submissive.
A film with a fantastic cast, you can see Julia Roberts, Jude Law, Natalie Portman and Clive Owen embark on a rather twisted entanglement. Two couples who mix and match, finding new ways to indulge in lustful desires but also new ways to love.
In this film, we see an erotic scene with Natalie Portman and Clive Owen that's almost unforgettable, yet throughout the film, sensuality or not, you'll be glued to the screen, wandering what kind of sexiness and betrayal will unfold next.
This foreign film is in French, but even if you're not one for subtitles, the imagery alone will get your motor revving. It follows the life of Adele who meets a young lady named Emma. Emma completely changes Adele's life as the unlikely pair begin exploring their sexual attractions towards each other.
In this film there is a lengthy sex scene that takes place between the two women that's noteworthy for all who have seen it. Because of this, and other enticing scenes, Blue is the Warmest Colour won the Palme d'Or and the FIPRESCI Prize at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival.
If you've got a thing for ballerinas, Mila Kunis, and Natalie Portman, then this film was made for you. It's a psychological horror film which, at times, can really mess with your head. The premise surrounds Nina Sayers, a 28-year-old ballerina who lives a sheltered life and Nina, a wild and free young woman.
The film includes flirting, explicit and racy scenes, and moments of self-pleasure that are hard not to love, but also has an excellent plot line that'll keep you intrigued from start to finish.
An erotic thriller with a scene so iconic, it shaped the wet dreams of men today. Basic Instinct stars Sharon Stone, a suspect in a murder investigation, and her torrid and intense relationship with a detective. It's jam packed with just as much suspense as erotica, and will have you surely on the edge of your seat.
Another reason to watch Basic Instinct? It was recognised for its groundbreaking depictions of sexuality in mainstream Hollywood. Despite this, some of the more sensual scenes had been cut from the final version in many countries worldwide due to its steamy nature.
A film loaded with sexual tension and intense erotic scenes, In the Cut shows an unlikely pair who can't seem to stay away from each other. It's a psychological thriller that follows the sexually-bold Meg Ryan who also happens to be a school teacher. Her lustful partner, Mark Rufallo, is a homicide detective who has a crude way of using sexual language. Together, they form an erotic connection that comes with consequences, betrayal, and all kinds of sensual and hot-blooded scenes.
Honestly? The plot itself did not gain much traction, but the intense sexual scenes and language alone is something that'll awaken something inside of you.
For erotic scenes that weren't simulated, Lie with Me provides more than enough content for ultimate arousal. In it, you'll meet Leila, a sexually aggressive young woman who one could consider to be a nymphomaniac. Then she meets David, a passive yet equally as sexually aggressive man with whom she becomes intrigued by. The pair take part in many a racy scene, all real, as we watch their strange and tumultuous relationship unfold.
Lie with Me is one of the more erotic films in our top 12 sexiest films of all time, so if you're looking for something intense, give it a watch!
