20 Most Sexually Graphic Movies on Netflix

If you didn’t know, there are movies on Netflix that are really sexually graphic (with a TV-MA or R-rating, of course). All we’ve done is to bring them together in one place. Not only are these the most sensual, erotic, and sultriest movies on Netflix, they also showcase really interesting stories. Because Netflix has only so many movies with sexual themes, we’ve brought to you the best, which are a must-watch. So, if you had the question – which are the most sexually graphic movies on Netflix, you might get your answer here.

20. 365 Days (2020)

Directed by Barbara Białowąs and Tomasz Mandes, ‘365 Days’ is a polish erotic drama that has made headlines due to its softcore sex scenes. Based on a novel trilogy by Blanka Lipinska, ‘365 Days’ follows the story of Laura, who is kidnapped by Massimo Torricelli, a leader of a Sicilian mafia family. Massimo tells Laura that he had spotted her on a beach five years ago, and apparently couldn’t forget her. Laura is to be kept in confinement for 365 days until she falls in love with Massimo. This weird premise sets the course for their relationship, which slowly blossoms through denials and seduction. The sex scenes between Massimo and Laura are steamy, to say the least, as it is aesthetically shot to entice the viewers in a softcore delight. Perhaps one of the raunchiest films on Netflix, ‘365 Days’ is the polish counterpart of ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’(2015), albeit with an unnerving plot twist in the end that leaves you wanting for more.

19. Berlin Syndrome

Directed by Cate Shortland, ‘Berlin Syndrome’ tells the story of Clare (Teresa Palmer), a backpacker and photographer from Australia, and the horrors she endures after meeting a seemingly likable and charming English teacher in Berlin. After Clare and the said English teacher, Andi (Max Riemelt), spend a night together, Clare discovers the following morning that Andi is gone, and the door to his apartment is locked from the outside. When Andi returns in the evening, he claims that it was a mistake. Believing him, she decides to stay there one more night. However, he soon starts to demonstrate obsessive behavior, writing “mein” on her shoulder, taking away her SIM Card, and tying her to the bed.

As the film progresses, Andi’s behavior becomes more and more bizarre and dangerous, making Clare wonder whether she will ever get out. Shortland and her writers employ sex to underscore the horrors that Clare experiences trapped in her situation. These scenes are jarring and uncomfortable, as they are meant to be.

18. Newness (2017)

Martin and Gabriella meet each other over a dating app. Instead of hooking up, while they get to know each other, Gabriella comes to know that Martin was married earlier, whereas Martin learns that Gabriella has had physically intimate relationships before. They both agree to form an open relationship, but eventually, Gabriella comes to know about Martin’s ailing mother and daughter and feels cheated. Alas, both separate and start new relationships while still in contact with each other and meeting over for threesomes, etc. (yes, you heard that right). After a string of relationships, they eventually reconcile and promise not to separate again. As simplistic as the storyline sounds, there is a certain amount of sensuality and passion in ‘Newness,’ which makes it stand out. Watch it here.

17. White Girl (2016)

Sundance has always been the home for fresh, new talent in the world of cinema, and when Elizabeth Wood debuted her film ‘White Girl’ at the festival in 2016, she definitely did not disappoint. Made on a shoe-string budget of $700,000, the film tells the story of a young girl called Leah, who gets involved in a sexually charged relationship with a Latino man called Blue.

A cocaine peddler by profession, Blue usually sells his drugs on the road and earns a lot less than what upper-class people are willing to pay for the same substance. This makes Leah introduce him to some of her colleagues to whom he sells his drugs and ends up earning quite a hefty amount. However, Blue is soon arrested by an undercover policeman, and Leah falls into deep trouble with the one kilogram of cocaine which Blue was initially carrying on him. The film then depicts the lengths that Leah goes to in order to free Blue from the confines of the prison.

‘White Girl’ does not only boast of steamy sex scenes but also provides us with the horrific picture on the other side of the coin. There is a scene of sexual torture that can be quite troublesome for some viewers. Keeping every aspect in mind, one can easily say that ‘White Girl’ is a film with a heart. It tries to explore the complexities of a relationship between a privileged white girl and a struggling Latino who has chosen the road of drug-dealing after having no other source of income to support himself.

16. No Limit (2022)

‘No Limit’ or ‘Sous emprise’ is a French film that tells the story of Roxana Aubrey, who leaves behind her monotonous life in Paris for a freediving course in Southern France. Upon meeting the instructor, Pascal Gautier, she becomes smitten, and the attraction soon proves mutual. Roxana and Pascal connect over their love for the ocean and diving. Things go smoothly for the two until Pascal has a blackout while trying to set a new freediving record and is subsequently told by his doctor that he must stop freediving. Love gives way to frustration and jealousy when Roxana starts to gain popularity as a diver, even setting up her own records. Inspired by a true story, ‘No Limit’ is a pretty and sensual movie, but it has a meandering plot that doesn’t do justice to the main character.

15. More the Merrier (2021)

‘More the Merrier’ or ‘Donde caben dos’ is a raunchy Spanish-language film. It has five different stories revolving around various characters. These stories often intersect as the characters are connected to each other in one way or another. One of the stories involves a couple who have grown distant from each other. To spice up their lives, they visit a swingers’ club, but the man realizes that he once dated the woman from the other pair. In another story, two friends plan to swap wives, not realizing their spouses are attracted to each other. One story follows a woman who lost her engagement ring at the swingers’ club the night before, while another tells the tale of a gay man trying to find love in the most unconventional circumstances.

14. 6 Years (2015)

Melanie Clark and Daniel Mercer have been in a relationship for six years and have seen their share of ups and downs. Their relationship seems to have maintained a consistent level of intimacy, including in bed. Cracks start to appear when one night Mel shoves Dan into a dresser. As Dan sustains a head injury because of this incident, they drive to a hospital, where Dan lies so that Mel wouldn’t be booked for assault. As the film progresses, simple things start to become complicated between the two of them. Dan gets a lucrative job offer in a different city, while Mel wants to live where she is. Tangled into the necessities of real life, love dies a slow death.

13. Gerald’s Game (2017)

Directed by horror maestro Mike Flanagan, ‘Gerald Game’ is both sexy and creepy. Jessie Burlingame’s husband dies while they’re acting out one of his rape fantasies, leaving her handcuffed to the bed. As time progresses, odd things start to happen. Some of these things are Jessie’s hallucinations, others are very much real. She watches as a dog walks into the room and rips a piece from Gerald’s corpse. Gerald then gets up and starts speaking to her, even though she knows he is still on the floor. Like Flanagan’s most projects, ‘Gerald’s Game’ has strong feminist motifs that are used innovatively and seamlessly.

12. The Package (2018)

One of the unique films on this list, ‘The Package,’ deftly blends black humor with sexually explicit material. Written by Kevin Burrows and Matt Mider and directed by Jake Szymanski, the film tells the story of four friends who are out on a camping trek. It is during this trip that one of them ends up cutting his penis in half. The situation naturally demands immediate action, and the film depicts how these friends go through several insane situations to get him medical assistance finally. There is ample nudity in this film, but it never feels gratuitous. The film has some rather weak moments, but that doesn’t take away the fact that it is a solid entertainer that can be enjoyed with a little pinch of salt. Such comedy films generally tend to be family entertainers and avoid including anything in them that might call for an R-rating, but ‘The Package’ does not hold back any punches and probes into areas others don’t dare explore.

11. Fatal Affair (2020)

Beth Dubber/Netflix

Directed by Peter Sullivan, ‘Fatal Affair’ tells the story of a prominent lawyer named Ellie Warren (Nia Long), whose husband has recently survived a vehicular accident. After their daughter left for college, they decided that it’s the best time to start their lives anew and purchased a house in San Francisco. There, Ellie encounters David Hammond (Omar Epps), whom she used to know in college. A relationship starts to develop between the two of them, stemming from the problems in Ellie’s marriage. Ellie tries to put a stop to it before it becomes physical, but it ends up bringing out the monster inside David, who begins stalking her and threatening those she loves.

10. The Last Paradiso (2021)

‘The Last Paradiso’ or ‘L’ultimo paradiso’ is an Italian language film about Ciccio Paradiso (Riccardo Scamarcio), a married man who has gained notoriety in his small town for having affairs with multiple women. His wife knows but is unable to do anything about it. One of these mistresses is Bianca, the daughter of a rich wheat and olive farmer, who treats his workers horribly and rapes young women. Imbued with a fighting spirit, Ciccio decides to stand up to the rich farmer. ‘The Last Paradiso’ is raunchy and hilarious for the most part. Certain choices made with the narrative are bound to surprise at least some members of the audience.

9. Cam (2018)

‘Cam’ is a disturbing, erotic thriller about a webcam entertainer named Alice, who one day discovers that her identity on the website she uses to stream her content has been stolen by someone who looks exactly like her. This sends Alice on a desperate and dangerous journey to find who is responsible. The only thing she knows is that the other girl’s screen name is Lola. ‘Cam’ is a perfect example of a digital-age horror film. The terror aspect is smartly executed. Although the film lags a bit unnecessarily, it makes it up with a spectacular ending.

8. Mrs. Serial Killer (2020)

Starring Jacqueline Fernandez and Manoj Bajpayee, ‘Mrs. Serial Killer’ is a delectably fun Indian suspense thriller film. The story follows the eponymous character, Sona Mukerjee, as she refuses to believe that her husband Joy is a serial killer. Instead, she thinks that her former boyfriend Inspector Imran Shahid is behind the allegations. Dismembered bodies of six women are found at a property that belongs to Joy. Each of these had an abortion. Joy, being a gynecologist, becomes the prime suspect and is subsequently arrested. Sona still adamantly believes in her husband’s innocence. When she comes for a visit, Joy asks her to reach out to his lawyer, Mr. Rastogi. When she does, Rastogi tells her of his diabolical plan of getting Joy out of jail.

7. Duck Butter (2012)

An experimental film where the subject of the plot is an experiment itself, ‘Duck Butter’ is a film by the Puerto Rican director Miguel Arteta. The story of the film centers between two women, who have both been ravaged by their experiences in romance. In a bid to bring in a twist in their lives, they decide that they would be spending 24 hours with each other, and each of those hours will be spent on having sex. What appears to be a fun experiment soon starts unraveling deep secrets that none of them was prepared for. The film is adorned with numerous sex scenes. However, more than the sex, it is the brilliant chemistry between lead actors Alia Shawkat and Laia Costa, which becomes the film’s highlight. The comedic tone of ‘Duck Butter’ adds an interesting layer to its otherwise intense plot.

6. Elisa & Marcela (2019)

Directed by Isabel Coixet, ‘Elisa & Marcela’ is a Spanish biographical romantic drama that tells the story of Elisa Sánchez Loriga and Marcela Gracia Ibeas, two women who went as a heterosexual couple to marry in 1901 at the Church of Saint George in A Coruña thereby becoming the first same-sex marriage to be recorded in Spain’s history. Shot in monochrome, ‘Elisa & Marcela’ is a deeply emotional melodrama that depicts the passionate love affair between two women and their desire to solidify their bond in matrimony. Their resilience against society’s denial and the mutual longing to be with each other portrays a passionate picture of same-sex love stories much like ‘Brokeback Mountain’ (2005) and ‘Carol’ (2015). The film features plenty of raunchy love-making scenes that personify the characters’ love in defiance with the ‘normal’ hardwired into societal conventions.

5. Lust Stories (2018)

A collaborative effort by the Indian film industry’s top directors, Anurag Kashyap, Karan Johar, Zoya Akhtar, and Dibakar Banerjee, ‘Lust Stories’ is an anthology film exploring the sexual life hidden beneath the morals of Indian society. Kashyap’s film follows a college professor played by Radhika Apte who ends up having a sexual liaison with one of her students. Their camaraderie and the exploration of a taboo relationship is a delightful exercise in depicting the emotional spectrum emerging from human follies and desires.

Akhtar’s film is about domestic help who is in a sexual relationship with her employer. She finds out that he is getting married, and their sexual gratification is about to end. The minimalistic film leaves an aftertaste that forces us to think about the intimacy issues moving beyond class hierarchies. Banerjee’s venture explores the repercussions of sexual affairs outside the bond of marriage. Manisha Koirala’s portrayal of a headstrong woman steals the show in this film. Karan Johar’s film is about a newly married woman who is not able to be sexually satisfied by her husband. She searches for the sweet spot through self-satisfaction aided by a vibrator. She is caught in the act that creates an embarrassing moment. ‘Lust Stories’ focuses on the female perspective and the tribulations that they have to face to explore their sexuality.

4. Deadly Illusions (2021)

This is when Rose tries to reach out to Titi, and the latter must do everything he can to ensure that she stays with him this time.

2. Dry Martina (2018)

Writer-director Che Sandoval’s ‘Dry Martina’ is a real gem of a film. The eponymous character seems to be well past her prime — both sexually and as a singer. She encounters superfan Francisca, who claims that she is her biological sister, and Francisca’s boyfriend César. Martina successfully seduces César and finds fulfillment for the first time in a while. When Cesar and Francisca leave, Martina isn’t remotely done with the former and promptly gets on a plane to follow them. The humor in ‘Dry Martina’ shifts between being raunchy and profound, and an exceptional performance by Antonella Costa as the protagonist stays with you long after the credits start rolling.

1. Blonde (2022)

Andrew Dominik’s ‘Blonde’ was always going to be a heavily polarizing film. Previous attempts to capture the life of Marilyn Monroe — be it on the big or small screen — have always fallen short of demystifying the larger-than-life Hollywood bombshell. Dominik’s attempt is unique in the context of biopics as a genre, but it is quite exploitative and seems to have been consciously designed to make the audience uncomfortable. The film begins when Marilyn (Ana de Armas) is still known as Norma Jeane Mortenson. It shows that the future actress suffers abuse in the hands of her mother before being sent to an orphanage. After she begins using Marilyn Monroe as her stage name, she gradually becomes successful as an actress, but with that success comes pain, abuse, loneliness, and exploitation. ‘Blonde’ is not particularly a pleasant movie to watch. It’s unrelenting and brutal with its narrative. However, it is also earnest in its depiction of the evil that lurks underneath the glitz and glamor of Tinseltown.
