5 Best Lesbian Love Making Scenes on Netflix

What does it mean to fall in love? Is it to find what one’s heart desires and then get wrapped up by the warmth and passion which the person evokes in us? Or is it just a societal need to fulfill the presumed goal of adding numbers to the human race? If we agree with the former, we can also agree that for most of humanity’s existence, people who have not followed the line of heteronormative sexuality have been prosecuted, tortured, killed, and oppressed in various ways by the machinery called religion and society. It was only during the 20th century that people slowly began to accept that deviant sexual orientations are not abnormalities. Art has been expressing such beliefs for a long time, and naturally, the idea readily found a place in the art form which defined the 20th century – cinema. There have been thousands of movies made since the birth of the medium that have spoken about people belonging to the LGBTQ communities. The New Queer Cinema movement was also a bold step in this direction.

With the advent of Netflix, films of different kinds have found a place to co-exist and be readily viewed by the general public. Netflix, as we all know, is ruling the roost when it comes to streaming platforms, and this is just a testament to the fact that they have the widest range of content for fans to choose from. With all that said, here’s the list of really good movies with lesbian sex scenes on Netflix that are available to stream right now:
