    A proper Netflix & chill requires a delicate balance: The movie or show must be entertaining enough to set the mood, but not so engrossing as to forget what you're there to do.

    The chosen entertainment should also be, well, sexy. Yes, that definitely rules out Fifty Shades of Grey.

    Also excluded are a number of truly excellent films and shows — what's great for binge-watching alone with a glass of wine and fuzzy slippers isn't always appropriate for getting it on with your bae. Would you really want someone nuzzling you during Law & Order: SVU?

    In that spirit, we've compiled a list of some of the movies and shows you should probably avoid when booking your next Netflix & chill sesh. Use it wisely.

    Master of None (2015)

    Take my advice: Avoid this show at all costs if you're in a new(ish) relationship. If the episode in which Dev moves in with his girlfriend of three months (to disastrous effect) doesn't have both of you sitting awkwardly close, but certainly not touching, the scene in which he wonders whether or not he has to marry his current girlfriend just because they happen to be together at the right time will definitely make you squirm. And squirming is not sexy.

    Blue Valentine (2010)

    It's hard to make Ryan Gosling appear unsexy, but the sight of his receding hairline and beer belly is probably enough to turn you off for the night.

    Revolutionary Road (2008)

    You know what doesn't inspire me to take my pants off? Failed marital expectations and back alley abortions.

    Schindler's List (1993)

    There is literally an entire Seinfeld episode dedicated to how inappropriate it is to canoodle during this tragic Holocaust film.

    Silence of the Lambs (1991)

    I don't know about you, but the prospect of my date munching on my leg come dinnertime is less than appealing.
