Sexy Netflix Movies: How To Find ‘Steamy’ Streaming Content On Netflix, Plus List Of Five Must-See Films

The online movie and TV streaming giant Netflix has managed to achieve its staggering total of almost 100 million subscribers worldwide — about 51 million in the United States alone — without relying on that most popular of online genres, porn. But just because Netflix does not feature the most explicit adult material, the service nonetheless features a wide selection of sexy movies and TV series. Netflix just doesn’t make a big deal out of promoting them.

In fact, while most Netflix subscribers are aware of the general categories into which the service sorts its catalog, with such generic headings as “Action,” “Dramas,” and “Documentaries,” researchers who have probed deep into the service’s offerings found that in its attempts to deliver subscribers exactly what they are looking for, Netflix has created a staggering 76,897 “micro” categories.

More than 60 of the categories, the online entertainment site Decider discovered, are categorized as “steamy,” the label employed by Netflix to designate films and TV shows with a noteworthy level of sexual content. Of course, the “steamy” label applies to a wide variety of films from romance to crime thrillers to horror and “cult” movies.

To browse through the Netflix selection of “steamy” movies and TV shows, see the category listing below, each linked to a Netflix page. Or skip the categories and scroll down to see a list of five of the best and most captivating sexy movies from the Netflix “steamy” selection.

Here are five “steamy” classics available to stream right now on Netflix. Clicking on each title leads to the Netflix page for that film.

ROOM IN ROME — Spanish film star Elena Anaya and Russian actress Natasha Yarovenko are two tourists who somehow end up sharing a hotel room in Rome. Stuck with each other, they soon begin revealing their most personal stories and desires — and spend large portions of the film in the nude.

TAKE THIS WALTZ — Comedian Seth Rogen is paired with four-time Oscar nominee Michelle Williams in a low-key but intense independent drama about a happily married couple torn apart when the woman (Williams) suddenly and unexpectedly develops a powerful sexual urge for a man who lives across her street.

BASIC INSTINCT — A runaway hit when it was released in 1992, grossing more than $350 million worldwide, this steamy crime drama stars Michael Douglas as a homicide detective on the trail of an ice-pick killer, but who falls in love — or more accurately, lust — with a sexually aggressive crime novelist played by Sharon Stone, who may or may not actually be the killer he’s hunting.

HOT GIRLS WANTED — An often downbeat documentary that was acquired by Netflix after premiering at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival, Hot Girls Wanted explores the lives of young women who become performers in the booming “amateur” pornography industry. Their stories are not always pretty, but always gripping.

MULLHOLLAND DRIVE — Considered by some critics to be eccentric director David Lynch’s finest film, his sexy 2001 classic Mulholland Drive was originally planned as a spinoff of Lynch’s early 1990s TV cult classic series Twin Peaks, a series revived just this year by the Showtime Network. But the film took on its own identity as the enigmatic and erotic story of a woman (Naomi Watts) who suffers amnesia after a car accident and must explore Los Angeles looking for her true identity.
