26 Best Sex Comedies on Netflix (July 2024)

The forbidden fruit that you can only get if you’re above 18… We’re talking about R-rated sex comedies. Comedy films come in many forms — they could be family comedies that anyone can watch comfortably with anyone, sports comedies, and romcoms (romantic comedies) that you would probably watch with your partner. But then there’s another type of comedy that makes parents frown with disapproval — sex comedies.

So, if you’ve got a long weekend ahead and you’re in the mood for something light, funny, and a little turning on, then a good sex comedy movie would do you some good. Sex comedies are not all about sex but also about the chronicles of how most of us have learned about heartbreaks, insecurities, genuine friendships, and love. Netflix offers a lot of options, no matter if you’re in the mood to watch something funny, raunchy, or nostalgic.

9. Budapest (2018)

Director Xavier Gens’ French sex comedy is a thrilling ride from start to finish, with its collection of oddball characters and a fairly unpredictable plot.

7. Brahman Naman (2016)

Directed by Qaushiq Mukherjee, also known simply as Q, Netflix’s ‘Brahman Naman’ is an Indian sex comedy that subverts the typical tropes of the genre by mocking its protagonists rather than glorifying them. While the film has no issue openly and earnestly discussing human sexuality, it does question the validity of male-centric portrayal of it in pop culture. ‘Brahman Naman’ is essentially a satire of films like ‘American Pie’ and ‘Revenge of the Nerds,’ but it’s not completely unkind to its characters, giving them enough leeway for growth. Set in Bangalore in the 1980s, the film tells the story of a group of horny young men, led by Naman (Shashank Arora), whose crippling inability to interact with women leads them to one misadventure after another. There is also a commentary about caste in the film and how pervasively and casually discriminatory it can be. You may watch ‘Brahman Naman’ here.

6. The Lovebirds (2020)

Starring Kumail Nanjiani and Issa Rae, Netflix’s ‘The Lovebirds’ revolves around a couple whose relationship seems to be on its last legs.

When it seems that this is the end for the couple, they get tangled together in a complex mystery that involves corrupt cops, blackmailing operations, and a secret society that regularly gets together for orgies. The two protagonists must put aside their differences and work together if they want to survive the ordeal. The film gives a definite ‘For Richer or Poorer’ vibe, the 1997 film starring Tim Allen and Kirstie Alley. You can watch ‘The Lovebirds’ here.

5. Ibiza: Love Drunk (2018)

The story of this Netflix original film centers around a woman called Harper who works at a PR agency in New York. When her company sends her on a trip to Barcelona to secure a deal with a new client, Nikki and Leah, two of Harper’s closest friends, decide to accompany her on her journey. In Barcelona, Harper meets a DJ called Leo and is immediately smitten by him. The two of them have a great time together, but Leo informs Harper that he must go to Ibiza to work. Even at the risk of losing her job, Harper decides to follow Leo to Ibiza and even takes her friends along.

Although the real Melissa then arrives to spend a magical time with Tim, he remains in a dilemma of having to choose between the two. Feel free to check out the movie here.

3. Lust Stories (2018)

Since the Indian film certification board is rather strict when it comes to matters regarding sex, the liberty that Netflix offers is welcomed by the open arms of four eminent Indian filmmakers in this anthology film. ‘Lust Stories‘ is the brainchild of Karan Johar, Zoya Akhtar, Anurag Kashyap, and Dibakar Banerjee. Each of them has made a film involving sex in modern India, and two of them are pretty humorous. Kashyap’s film deals with the sexual relationship between a teacher and a student, which the latter confuses with love, while Johar’s film deals with the pressures a modern, liberated woman has in trying to adjust to the needs of her in-laws. The climax of Johar’s film is one of the most daring and comedic scenes when it comes to dealing with sex-related films in India. While the other two films are brilliant in their ways, you won’t find much humor in them. You can stream it here.

2. Someone Great (2019)

A Netflix original film ‘Someone Great‘ starts with the story of a girl named Jenny, who has managed to land her dream job as a music journalist for Rolling Stone magazine. However, Jenny’s happiness does not last long and comes crashing down when her boyfriend breaks up with her. Just like Jenny, her other two friends, Erin and Blair, are also going through problems in their own romantic relationships. The three of them decide that they need to take a trip together before Jenny moves to San Francisco to start her new job. The series of adventures and realizations that they have in New York becomes a revealing experience for the three girls. With enough steamy scenes and strong humor, ‘Someone Great’ is a film that must be on your watchlist. If you plan to watch it, you can do so here.

1. The Incredible Jessica James (2017)

A Netflix romantic comedy by writer-director James C. Strouse, ‘The Incredible Jessica James’ tells the story of the eponymous woman who is an aspiring playwright living in New York City. When the film begins, we see Jessica telling a man she has met through Tinder about her recent breakup. We get to understand through Jessica’s conversations that she is a fiercely independent person who does not hesitate to confirm her likes or dislikes about any issue whatsoever. During another one of these Tinder dates with a man called Boone, the two of them realize that they have both been out of serious relationships quite recently.

Despite the date not starting off on a good note, they bond and even end up having sex at some point. As the two of them talk, other similarities in their characters become apparent. This makes Jessica and Boone partners in trying to figure out how to deal with life post-breakup. With brilliantly written characters and a strong performance by Jessica Williams in the leading role, this is a film that offers you a fresh look at a tried and tested genre. You can watch ‘The Incredible Jessica James’ here.
