Part the beaded curtain, and follow along as we list the most sexually explicit Netflix titles we could find.
365 Days (2020)
Admit it, this is the movie that sent you to this list. No one would blame you, either, as 365 Days hit the streaming giant in the summer of 2020 and quickly became the latest steamy sensation to get Netflix users excited. For the uninitiated, the film is based on the Polish novel of the same name by author Blanka Lipińska, telling the story of mafia don Massimo (Michele Morrone) and his captive love interest Laura (Anna-Maria Sieklucka.) That captivity part is most of the reason why this film led many to sign a petition for its removal, but fans loved its exceedingly realistic looking sex scenes, and a sequel, 365 Days: This Day, debuts on April 27, 2022.

Director Drake Doremus has quietly become one of the most proficient storytellers when it comes to complex emotional relationships. In his previous films, such as Like Crazy and Equals, he’d mined that subject for some very unique views on how society deals with such things, and Newness is perhaps one of his most sexually provocative examinations. This time around, Martin (Nicholas Hoult) and Gabriella (Laia Costa) are Dormeus’ subjects, as they start an open relationship after they become bored with their romance, which sees each partner asking the other to accomplish specific tasks while the other watches. Love and lust collide, as the two try to get to the root of what their relationship is really all about.
