Some nights, Netflix and chill just won't do it. Whether you're having a sexy date night with your partner, or looking for a little solo stimulation, there are those occasions when we all find ourselves in the mood to get something a little more arousing out of our TV viewing. Thanks to everyone's favorite streaming service, you can rely on these super sexy movies on Netflix that should be rated triple-R for those nights — or, heck, mornings, whatever floats your boat — on the rare occasions when Tidying Up with Marie Kondo just isn't doing it for you.
There's a little something for everyone in Netflix's bag of tricks. There's comedy, like Sleeping With Other People; twisty drama, like the eye-poppingly sex-filled Love; and thrillers, like the political Zipper. Plus, if you're into foreign films, and are either multi-linguistic or don't mind reading a few subtitles, you're definitely in luck. From the 2001 Spanish classic Y Tu Mamá También to France's 2013 entry Blue Is The Warmest Colour, many of the imports are award-winners despite the amount of skin shown — or and sometimes even because. Non-gender-conforming opportunities abound as well, so regardless of what you're craving, the platform is sure to offer you a way to indulge from the comfort of your very own couch.
She's Gotta Have It — And Gets Plenty Of It And Then Some
Nymphomaniac Volume I, TV-MA
Celebrated French-English actress Charlotte Gainsbourg plays Joe, the female focus of this unflinching look at sexual obsession. Fair warning: This title is definitely not for the faint-of-heart, as the sex is unsimulated and Gainsbourg's character spends much of her narrative time with her face covered in bruises that are the result of the masochistic B-side of her cravings. Volume 2 covers the character's later adulthood.

Leading man Karl Glusman's character spends a lot of time fantasizing about his old girlfriend to kill time in his dull marriage when learning that she's turned up missing. Quelle horreur!

Four of India's most prominent directors explore female sexuality in an anthology film that takes on repression and gender stereotypes in a way that's both erotic and critically-acclaimed.
