Pulling together a wholly objective list of the sexiest movies ever made is impossible, but we’ve come up with the top 5 to come out this year.

It’s been a trying year for all of us and it’s no question that most of the population has spent a chunk of their time on movie streaming platforms like Netflix.

Everyone has different reasons for watching certain genres of film. If you want to feel adrenaline and fear, you watch horror. If you want to laugh, you watch comedy.

But there are moments when all we want is some good, old-fashioned sexy stuff. The intimacy, the tension – all of the above.

It’s no secret that sex sells, and movies are no exception. But while plenty of films like to show gratuitous sex, they’re not always very good.

These are the best movies about lust, love, and everything in between.
