10 Of The Sexiest Non-Porn Movies To Watch When You’re In The Mood

Some of the sexiest movie scenes ever made don’t include actual, explicit sex. Think about ~iconic~ sexy scenes, like Sharon Stone flashing the audience in Basic Instinct, or Phoebe Cates getting out of the pool in a red bikini in Fast Times At Ridgemont High. While both scenes obviously involved a lot of (female) flesh and the basic idea of sex, they don’t include, like, an NC-17 rating for porno-like sex. And honestly? They don’t need to. The idea of sex, and the desire and passion conveyed by the actors and the surrounding scene is enough to get everyone off.

So, if you’re ever ~in the mood~ and you feel like watching something that will, uh, intensify those feelings, don’t think you have to reach for some crazy porn video. You can just watch any of the below movies instead, and the outcome will be pretty much the same. Make these your go-to date night movies, or just watch them when you’re alone and bored. You (probably) won’t get in trouble for watching them, because you can act like you just wanted to see the movie!

A recent Ask Women Reddit thread discussed the sexiest movies that don’t include actual porn, and they definitely needed to be shared. It’s interesting to note that a lot of these scenes are either totally inappropriate (like, legal-wise), or they include girls getting it on together. So I guess the moral of the story is that everyone is really into lesbian action or potentially illegal stuff. Which is… a topic for another day. Here are some of the sexiest non-porno movies out there. 


Cruel Intentions

User YourWaterloo says, "CRUEL INTENTIONS. I think it's in large part that it came into my life when I was old enough to have raging hormones but young enough that sex was still kind of mysterious, so it was super titillating to see it depicted in the media. Plus Ryan Philippe was just incredible in his prime."

Okay, YES. Cruel Intentions is going to make you strangely turned on by possible incest, which is weird, but if you watch Game Of Thrones, you're used to it already. Also, everything about this movie is A+, so just watch it.

Black Swan

User fkasophia says, "Black Swan." User CallMeOutScotty adds, "my experience with that movie can be boiled down to: well mark me down as scared AND horny."

I think that above sentence is a pretty great review for Black Swan. It's a weird, disturbing movie that will creep you out but also make you see Mila Kunis and Natalie Portman in a totally different way.

Wild Things

User T--Frex says, "Wild Things. Inappropriate relationships, crime, lesbian rage sex, revenge, alligators, Bill Murray. Enough said." Wild Things is an old movie that has a lot going on. There's a rape scandal. There's some girl-on-girl kissing action in bathing suits. There's a threesome. There's betrayal. There's... a mean, it's just a lot. It might be a little trashy, but in a very sexual way.

Vicky Cristina Barcelona

User PracticeMakesPizza says, "Vicky Cristina Barcelona. The Woody Allen wit, the backdrop of Barcelona. That movie was so sexy." If you're not a fan of Woody Allen and don't want to support his movies, I don't blame you at all for skipping this one! I personally haven't seen it, but it's one of those movies that consistently comes up on lists of erotic movie scenes and scripts, so if you really just want to get turned on, then, uh, go for it.

The Departed

User imaseacow says, "The Departed. Idk wtf it is but something about Leo & the vulnerability of his character in that movie got me thirsty as helllll. Peak DiCaprio hotness and it's been downhill ever since imo." Okay, honestly, this is the truth. Leonard DiCaprio is hot as hell in this movie, although it has NOT been downhill from there, but OKAY we'll move on for now. I will say, though, this movie is extremely violent and sad. So, if you're into that when you're trying to get in the mood, great. If you'd rather not feel a lot of conflicting emotions, skip this one.

Brokeback Mountain

User strawcat00 says, "Brokeback Mountain. I'm a straight woman, and I'm not into gay male porn, don't get particularly turned on by two men getting it on--it's not like, a gay man fetish thing. But the tension between them and not being able to have each other, yep. That one scene where they're fighting and then they're into it...yep. Super sexy to me."

Remember when Brokeback Mountain was the most scandalous thing that ever happened to Hollywood? This isn't a sexy movie because there's a lot of explicit sex - there isn't - but because of all of the passion and sexual tension involved, which is sometimes even hotter than a naked sex scene.

Pride and Prejudice

User aomameandtengo says, "Pride and Prejudice (2005) - so much tension, and it only gets partially released if you watch the American ending. Middle school me was so turned on by that kiss." This is another movie that doesn't include lots of naked sex scenes, but the passion throughout is enough to get you hot and bothered.

Blue Is The Warmest Color

User PracticeMakesPizza says, "Blue Is The Warmest Colour was so hot. Adele is a babe." To be honest, I haven't seen this movie, so I can't offer much commentary. I know it's a French film about a passionate lesbian couple and it's supposed to be great!

Mr. and Mrs. Smith

User omniplatypus says, "Mr. And Mrs. Smith. After I saw it, the Brad Pitt getting with Angelina Jolie thing made perfect sense." Honestly, same. As much as I don't like the relationship between Brad and Angelina (Team Jennifer Aniston over here), I could totally see the passion and sexual tension between them in this movie, and it was pretty damn hot.

Labryinth

User iamthecutestofborg says, "Labyrinth. Not sure if it's a purely David Bowie thing or if it's the sort-of-power-dynamic-y undertone to their interactions or if it's just that I happened to see it at the right time in my life, but holy hell, there's something about that movie." I haven't seen this and am admittedly not a huge David Bowie fan! But, hey, I trust this user.
