Admit it: You one hundred percent have watched a movie for the sole purpose if it having a bangin’ sex scene. Maybe you heard about it on Twitter or saw people posting about it on TikTok, but for whatever reason, you're now frantically logging into your ex's Netflix account to see what the hype's all about.

For what it’s worth, this is completely normal. Considering porn can be, well, icky sometimes, movies and T.V. shows are just about the closest thing we get to know what a ~sexy~ sex scene looks like without just doing the damn thing. Plus, they’re scripted, so you’re totally going to fall in love with the characters, their development, the plot, and the climax (in whatever way you want to take that term).

So for your viewing pleasure, we’ve rounded up the most titillating sex scenes for you and your horny self to enjoy. Tune into these 35 movies with sex scenes so raw, they should not be watched with or beside parental units. Consider that your warning now.

1. 365 DNI

Stream Now

Introducing Netflix's newest erotic film, 365 DNI. It quickly climbed the horny ranks when its shower sex scenes started circulating all over TikTok. And TBH, I’m not sure if the lead male character in here could do anything that won’t make your jaw drop. That said, you can prep yourself for a boat sex scene that literally lasts like four minutes. But Major! Red! Flag! Alert! This movie romanticizes an extremely toxic relationship, so only watch it for the sex scene that starts at 1:08:38.

2. All the Bright Places

Stream Now

If you want a horny, young love drama that also has a bout of sexual tension, All the Bright Places is for you. Plus, Justice Smith is the lead who tries to woo Elle Fanning, and these two’s chemistry is just straight fire. It’s quite honestly a YA *chefs kiss*.

3. Below Her Mouth

Stream Now

Okay, back to the TikTok obsession: Below her Mouth is another Netflix movie making its rounds on the For You Page. Specifically for the hot lesbian scenes. Centered around an affair between two women—one who’s ironically engaged to a straight man—Below Her Mouth is very nearly porn, just with more plotlines. What to expect: loads of oral sex scenes, artful porn, and a stream of water being used to masturbate.

4. Tyler Perry's Temptation

Stream Now

Okay, so yes, this movie does romanticize cheating (...until it doesn't—you'll see what I mean by that) but there are some seriously sexy scenes to fill up the plot. Judice (Candice Coke) quickly becomes enamored with a wealthy entrepreneur (Robbie Jones) who unleashes a whole new side of her.

5. Beyond the Lights

Stream Now

Put these two things together: A hot new artist who has an overbearing momager and desperate need to escape the public eye + a young police officer who she hires to keep her away from cameras and fame. I mean, totally a modern love story, right? With the horny sex scenes to match—trust me.

6. The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo

7. Call Me By Your Name

So we don't exactly get to see Elio and Oliver (the beautiful Timothee Chalamet and Armie Hammer) do the deed, but the intimate foreplay that we were blessed to witness was prob just as sexy.

9. Cruel Intentions

STREAM NOW

IMO, this movie is a classic. Ryan Philippe, Reese Witherspoon, and Sarah Michelle Gellar star in it. What more do I need to say? And if you ever miss Ryan and Reese together as a real-life couple, watch their love scene in this movie. It'll bring back allllll the feels.
