8 Sexy Movies That Are Less Netflix and More Chill

Netflix and chill is still a thing, right? It used to be innocent, but nowadays, there’s less emphasis on Netflix and more on the “chilling” aspect. Sometimes, this request is met with a resounding “Yes!” from all parties involved. Other times, however, it’s used as a battle cry for f*ckboys, which has sullied the movie-night experience for the rest of us.
We recommend making your intentions clear up front, but if you’re determined to use a streaming service as your wingman, we’ve got you covered. We’re not just sticking to Netflix, either.
Keep it in your pants: What To Watch When You’re Tempted To Cheat On Your Girlfriend
Almost every woman wants a love story like The Notebook. It’s a beautiful, tragic, endearing tale about star-crossed lovers who meet, fall in love, break up, get back together and then die. (Belated spoilers alert!) But if you haven’t seen this movie by now, who even are you? Honestly. The Notebook has been getting dudes laid since ’04.
Now, we would never suggest using the epic story from the mind and heart of Nicholas Sparks to get your lady in the mood. That would be wrong. We’re just saying, if you do watch it, there is a high chance that you’re going to have sex.
'50 Shades of Grey'
Do we really need to spell this one out for you?
Sigh. Fine. 50 Shades of Grey was the first in a series of books that focused on the relationship between timid 20-something Anastasia Steele and the mysterious and evasive Christian Grey.
With a name like that, you had to know the dude would have some issues. Luckily for housewives everywhere, those issues led to him becoming an extremely attractive, wealthy, and successful sadist. And he took every single one of his mommy issues out on Anastasia, who called it romance. She liked his take-charge attitude. Lots of other women did, too, it turns out. The book sold roughly a bazillion copies and, naturally, a movie trilogy followed suit.
The first movie promised to toe the line between R and X-rated. And while there wasn’t much more to see in the film other than a little nudity, it got lots of people just as revved up as the book.
So, one night after copious amounts of alcohol, we suggest popping this movie in and just seeing where the night takes you.
Released 20 years ago, Cruel Intentions still remains one of the sexiest movies of all time. It tells the story of two step-siblings who place a bet with dire consequences that leave innocent people tangled up in their web of lies, sex, seduction, and necklaces full of cocaine.
Sarah Michelle Geller, at the height of her Buffy popularity, stars as the wicked step-sister, Mary. Ryan Phillippe co-stars as Sebastian, the Lothario who ends up having a heart underneath all of the ice. Reese Witherspoon, Selma Blair, and Joshua Jackson also star in the film that features one of the most iconic ‘girl-on-girl’ kisses in cinematic history that is bound to get your heart beating and your palms sweating.
Nobody asked for a cinematic reboot of the beloved ‘90s television show, but we got it anyway. It was a miss-able film in most regards, but it featured The Rock and Zac Efron mostly shirtless for the duration of the film.
Now, since you probably don’t look exactly like The Rock or Efron, we suggest putting on some red shorts and leaving on the Hurley shirt. Let her imagine she’s wrapped up in the safe, snug arms of a lifeguard and don’t get too mad if she accidentally calls you "Mike." This is her night, okay?
'P.S. I Love You'
Sex without romance just doesn’t matter as much, in our humble opinion. One-night stands are fun, but it’s more fun not having to stumble out of somebody’s apartment immediately after sleeping with them. Romance is in this season and there’s no better movie to watch than P.S. I Love You if you want your girl to feel romantic and “jiggy wit it.”
We suggest watching this movie and then, throughout the week, leave her little love notes in the places she frequents. Sign them all with "P.S. I Love you," and she’ll want your bod just as much as you want her heart.
It’s Matthew McConaughey, Channing Tatum, Joe Manganiello and more as male strippers, in a story that is surprisingly interesting. Need we say more?
Anything with Idris Elba
There’s a reason Idris Elba was voted People’s "Sexiest Man Alive." The reason is because he’s the sexiest man alive. Of this, we have no doubt. Whether he’s watching Thor’s back, chasing the Man in Black, or helping The Rock lay down the smack, Idris Elba is one of Hollywood’s greatest actors.
We will watch him in anything, and love him in everything. Your lady will too, and while she will ultimately be disappointed that you are decidedly not Idris Elba. If you don’t say anything maybe she can pretend for a little while. It’s a win for both of you!
Any MCU Movie Featuring One or More of the 'Three Chrises'
Or get real crazy and watch Infinity War. They’re all three in that one. Or wait until Endgame. But we cannot suggest, nor condone, getting freaky in the movie theater. There are children at this movie, you weirdos!
