In our humble opinion, sexy movies should be their own genre — just like dramas, comedies, and thrillers. To be clear: when we say sexy movies, we’re not just talking about films with tons of eye candy or sweet and tender rom-coms. No, we mean down-and-dirty flicks that you wouldn’t want to watch with your parents — and might even make you blush when viewing all alone.
But let’s be honest, sexiness isn’t always just about actual sex. Sexy stories are full of passion, because sometimes the sexiest thing a person can do is express their devotion verbally — or show you how much you mean to them. Tell us you haven’t gotten all hot and bothered when a partner praised you and lifted you up like the royalty that you are. Now that is some sexy stuff! Plus, plenty of the sexiest movies of all time are among some of the best LGBTQ+ movies of all time.
We love a steamy movie just as much as anyone, so we’ve rounded up some of the hottest films of all time — from raunchy flicks to passionate love stories. Just a warning: it should go without saying that a lot of these are strictly NSFW. See the sexiest movies of all time ahead.
