13 Steamy Movies & Shows On Netflix That Are Basically Porn

You're in for more than just a little T&A with these flicks.

Culture & Entertainment

So, it's just your regular night in after a long week. You've popped that popcorn, baked that frozen pizza, and guzzled a few glasses of wine. You start looking for something to watch and come across a title that seems innocent enough, only to find out about 30 minutes in that it's more than your average rom-com. It's literally porn on Netflix. You're seeing full-frontal nude, hardcore grinding, and glimpses of body parts you'd only see on PornHub.


Netflix has been getting its BET Uncut on lately, sliding in mature content for the unsuspecting—and the soft porn enthusiasts. If you're into that or just curious (wink), here are 13 movies that fit the bill:

365 Days

365 Days is an English-language film based on a series of erotic books by Polish writer Blanka Lipinska. It centers around a woman on vacation who is kept captive by a Mafia boss who is obsessed with making her fall in love with him. It's technically a kidnapping-turned-romance saga, and the sex scenes hold almost nothing back.

Love

When a couple has a threesome with their neighbor, they're not prepared for the super-sexy aftermath of it all. You'll see lots of nudity (well, just enough for the NC-17 rating), and enough saucy romps to have you wondering if maybe you should take a second look at the guy or girl next door.

Lust/Caution

Set in Shanghai during World War II, Lust/Caution is a steamy movie that follows the adventures of a woman who has to navigate an espionage conspiracy and the lusts of her beau. It's old-school and has subtitles, and the bedroom scenes get rough and raunchy.

She's Gotta Have It

Nola Darling is a sex-positive artist who gets it on with some of the sexiest black men in her "loving bed". She also has an affair with an old friend and single mom, Opal, and has sex on her own terms in all the positions.

Sex Education

Otis is a socially awkward student who has a sex therapist mom, and this show follows his escapades in learning more about himself, love, and of course, sex. He starts a sex advice business and the exploits get tricky, salacious, and oh-so-naughty.

Lang Tong

If you're into erotic thrillers, this Singaporean film does not disappoint. You've got a serial womanizer who sets his sights---and lovemaking wiles--- on the younger sister of his lover. It gets even more complicated---and gruesome---when the two women team up.

A Perfect Ending

A repressed wife and a high-end call girl—you do the math on this one. Middle-aged Rebecca explores her sexuality and lets loose in a sensual, slow-burning film about secrets and affairs.

Elisa & Marcela

This one is set in early 1900s Spain and tells the story of two women who engage in "illegal" rendezvous under the nose of their village neighbors. The film is in black and white, which adds a special allure, and it's based on a true story of same-sex lovers who tricked a priest into marrying them.

Tiger

OK, so technically Tiger isn't full porn all the way through, but if you can remember that scene in Belly where DMX's character Tommy goes in on Keisha, you'll get those same feels when you see this boxer with the love of his life in a some pretty passionate scenes.

The Naked Director

This is a semi-biographical film that tells the story of the rise, fall, and comeback of Japanese adult video director Toru Muranishi. It's based on a nonfiction book about his life and how he built an underground empire during a time when porn was culturally taboo in Asia. And yes, there's some intense laying of the pipe in this one.

Newness

Newness is what happens when two people get bored with hooking up with people from dating apps and decide to give monogamy a try. As a couple, they stumble upon a new problem: Boredom sets in, and their solution circles back to hooking up with strangers—again.

Troy: Fall of the City

A British-American miniseries, Troy: Fall of the City depicts the 10-year Trojan War and is set in the 13th century B.C. Watching this will remind you that when it comes to sex, there's practically nothing new under the sun, and modern-day folk might have nothing on the freakilicious habits of these Greek mythical creatures.

Easy

This series doesn't include your typical fantasy love scenes. It's really more about everyday sex, but it's sex nonetheless. And why not enjoy watching everyday people with everyday bodies having everyday smash sessions?

Before she was Amira Unplugged, rapper, singer, and a Becoming a Popstar contestant on MTV, she was Amira Daughtery, a twenty-five year-old Georgian, with aspirations of becoming a lawyer. “I thought my career path was going to lead me to law because that’s the way I thought I would help people,” Amira tells xoNecole. “[But] I always came back to music.”

A music lover since childhood, Amira grew up in an artistic household where passion for music was emphasized. “My dad has always been my huge inspiration for music because he’s a musician himself and is so passionate about the history of music.” Amira’s also dealt with deafness in one ear since she was a toddler, a condition which she says only makes her more “intentional” about the music she makes, to ensure that what she hears inside her head can translate the way she wants it to for audiences.

“The loss of hearing means a person can’t experience music in the conventional way,” she says. “I’ve always responded to bigger, bolder anthemic songs because I can feel them [the vibrations] in my body, and I want to be sure my music does this for deaf/HOH people and everyone.”

In order to lift people’s spirits at the beginning of the pandemic, Amira began posting videos on TikTok of herself singing and using sign language so her music could reach her deaf fans as well. She was surprised by how quickly she was able to amass a large audience. It was through her videos that she caught the attention of a talent scout for MTV’s new music competition show for rising TikTok singers, Becoming a Popstar. After a three-month process, Amira was one of those picked to be a contestant on the show.

Becoming a Popstar, as Amira describes, is different from other music competition shows we’ve all come to know over the years. “Well, first of all, it’s all original music. There’s not a single cover,” she says. “We have to write these songs in like a day or two and then meet with our producers, meet with our directors. Every week, we are producing a full project for people to vote on and decide if they’d listen to it on the radio.”

To make sure her deaf/HOH audiences can feel her songs, she makes sure to “add more bass, guitar, and violin in unique patterns.” She also incorporates “higher pitch sounds with like chimes, bells, and piccolo,” because, she says, they’re easier to feel. “But it’s less about the kind of instrument and more about how I arrange the pattern of the song. Everything I do is to create an atmosphere, a sensation, to make my music a multi-sensory experience.”

She says that working alongside the judges–pop stars Joe Jonas and Becky G, and choreographer Sean Bankhead – has helped expand her artistry. “Joe was really more about the vocal quality and the timber and Becky was really about the passion of [the song] and being convinced this was something you believed in,” she says. “And what was really great about [our choreographer] Sean is that obviously he’s a choreographer to the stars – Lil Nas X, Normani – but he didn’t only focus on choreo, he focused on stage presence, he focused on the overall message of the song. And I think all those critiques week to week helped us hone in on what we wanted to be saying with our next song.”

As her star rises, it’s been both her Muslim faith and her friends, whom she calls “The Glasses Gang” (“because none of us can see!”), that continue to ground her. “The Muslim and the Muslima community have really gone hard [supporting me] and all these people have come together and I truly appreciate them,” Amira says. “I have just been flooded with DMs and emails and texts from [young muslim kids] people who have just been so inspired,” she says. “People who have said they have never seen anything like this, that I embody a lot of the style that they wanted to see and that the message hit them, which is really the most important thing to me.”

Throughout the show’s production, she was able to continue to uphold her faith practices with the help of the crew, such as making sure her food was halal, having time to pray, dressing modestly, and working with female choreographers. “If people can accept this, can learn, and can grow, and bring more people into the fold of this industry, then I’m making a real difference,” she says.

Though she didn’t win the competition, this is only the beginning for Amira. Whether it’s on Becoming a Popstar or her videos online, Amira has made it clear she has no plans on going anywhere but up. “I’m so excited that I’ve gotten this opportunity because this is really, truly what I think I’m meant to do.”

Today is Malcolm X’s birthday. As an icon of Black liberation movements, his words are often rallying cries and guideposts in struggle. In 2020, after the officers who executed Breonna Taylor were not charged with her murder, my timeline was flooded with people reposting Malcolm’s famous quote: “The most disrespected person in America is the Black woman. The most unprotected person in America is the Black woman. The most neglected person in America is the Black woman.”
