1. "Brokeback Mountain"

This 2005 movie is arguably one of the most heartbreaking ever made. It tells the story of a ranch hand, Ennis (played by Heath Ledger), and a cowboy, Jack (played by Jake Gyllenhaal), who fall and love and develop a relationship that plays out over decades, even as they're forced to hide it from those around them. While the movie may move you to tears more than once, the sexual tension that leads up to the first sex scene, and the subsequent displays of passion, are undeniably hot — and a big part of the reason this sexy film is an enduring classic.

2. "Lady Chatterley's Lover"

As far as erotic movies on Netflix go, it doesn't get much steamier than "Lady Chatterley's Lover." Starring Emma Corrin, the period drama follows Lady Chatterley, a woman who grew up with great wealth and privilege, as she begins her new life with her husband. Albeit, married life isn't as hot and heavy as she thought it would be. Lady Chatterley soon finds herself falling out of love with her husband and developing a wandering eye for the gamekeeper on their English estate. It's with him that Lady Chatterley discovers the true intimacies and desires of sex and, consequently, love. Is there anything better than a spicy period drama? We don't think so.

3. "The Best of Me"

Based on Nicholas Sparks's romance novel of the same name, this sexy film centers around a pair of former high school sweethearts as they find their way back to one another while mourning the death of an old mutual friend. Twenty years has passed since Dawson (James Marsden) last laid eyes on the love of his life, Amanda (Michelle Monaghan). With her back in their hometown, revisiting the place they first fell in love, it's as if no time has passed at all. However, their steamy reunion soon becomes clouded by the obstacles and judgements that once drove them apart as kids. We love the sexual tension in this spicy pick.

4. "After Ever Happy"

The Tessa Young (Josephine Langford) and Hardin Scott (Hero Fiennes-Tiffin) saga continues in the fourth installment of the After series, based on the books by romance novelist Anna Todd. In "After Every Happy," secrets from both Tessa's and Hardin's past emerge, threatening to destroy the already creaky foundation of their intoxicating relationship. While Tessa and Hardin have no problem making up (their sex life is out of this world), it's not enough to salvage their lack of communication. She may be his source of refuge, but if Hardin continues to push her away, he may lose Tessa for good — unless her demons push him away first. This will soon top your favorites list of adult Netflix movies.

5. "Mr. & Mrs. Smith"

John (Brad Pitt) and Jane Smith (Angelina Jolie) aren't your typical run-of-the-mill married couple. Not only are they both sexy secret assassins — whose bosses both send them on the same mission — but they're also unaware of each other's true profession. Thus, they have no idea that the target they're after is actually the person they share a bed with every night. That's right, they're both sleeping with the enemy. It isn't long before they learn of each other's real identities, making playing husband and wife all that much more fun and dangerous. And in a twisted way, a lot sexier, too.

But their relationship is put to the test when they go to college together to play basketball. Monica and Quincy are forced to choose between the love of the game and their love for each other.

In this visually compelling and erotic drama, a skilled diver enters a romantic yet toxic relationship with her instructor.

As a result, it begins to affect their professional relationship — specifically, her instructor's quest to break a free-diving record. While their relationship is very much centered on sex and lust (translation: hot and steamy scenes ahead), they have a deeper understanding of each other's needs when it comes to the sport.

Through an acquaintance, Dr. Hartford learns of a secret sexual group and sits in on one of their sessions. It's not long before he realizes the group is far more sinister than he realized, prompting him to claw his way out no matter what.

With Jacob's help and sexual expertise, Cal gets a new wardrobe, a new haircut, pickup lines, and his mojo back. But Cal and Jacob's friendship is put to the test when Cal discovers Jacob (aka the womanizer who's been coaching him) is seeing his daughter, Hannah (Emma Stone).

A literal take on the phrase "never go to bed angry," Malcom (Washington) and Marie (Zendaya) work throughout the night to resolve their differences and pent-up negative feelings toward one another.

So they set a plan into motion: Anne will leave Amsterdam and join Saar (Jouman Fattal) as soon as her book is complete. The only problem is Anne hates every word she's written thus far, and her publishers aren't too convinced, either. During a much-needed night out with her friends, Anne meets a nonbinary drag artist, and inspiration strikes — well, it does after rolling around in bed together and getting to know one another person on a hotter, more intimate level than Anne ever knew was possible.
