When it comes to sexy movies, they aren't necessarily lurking in the adults-only section of HBO — or in the deleted archives of one's browser history. Often, the steamiest films are mainstream, waiting for you in plain sight on any given streaming service. And who doesn’t love a spicy movie night? Whether a flick features a crazy-hot sex scene or character chemistry that’s off the charts, there’s a sexy movie out there for everyone.
A sex scene isn’t necessarily sexy at face value, and sometimes the spiciest moments in a movie have nothing to do with sex at all. After all, “sexy” is a feeling and personal preference, so what’s steamy to you might not be steamy at all for someone else. That being said, there are a fair share of movies that are commonly agreed upon as being pretty sexy. So, as a celebration of the sexiest films to ever grace the big screen, we've rounded up a collection of steamy movies that have a history of encouraging sexy moods. While turn-ons are as varied as people are, these movies certainly attempt to evoke certain feelings in all of us.
