There's always time to watch a sexy movie or two, no matter what time of the year it is.
It's coming up to Valentine's Day and, let's be honest, our timelines and homepages are flooded with love hearts and gift ideas for that special someone in your life (even if that special someone is yourself). And while these targeted adverts may become overwhelming and eye-rolling by now, there's always one way that you can embrace the love without giving in wholeheartedly to the "holiday" - some sexy movies.
If you've got an on demand subscription, take a look at which titles will be the perfect ones to have a gawk at for the week that's in it.
'The Handmaiden' (Netflix)
If erotic thrillers are your type of thing, then 'The Handmaiden' is one such title that you need to watch immediately. The South Korean psychodrama has quite rightfully earned itself immense praise for its power dynamics around women, as well as its disturbing yet passionate drama which you won't be able to look away from.
'Cruel Intentions' (Amazon Prime)
While the script may be so-so, it's easy to overlook with the pure talent appearing in 'Cruel Intentions'. A dark comedy with a splattering of sexual attention, desire, and raunchiness made it a hit with moviegoers over 20 years ago. An irresistible romp and a definite title to add to your sexy movies list.
'Magic Mike' (Netflix)
Look, it's just a load of lads jumping around topless, alright. If you're looking for one of those movies where you can switch your brain off while simultaneously watching Channing Tatum and Matthew McConaughey dazzle you with their pecks, then this is the one for you.
'An Officer and a Gentleman' (Sky and NOW TV)
Could this quite possibly Richard Gere's best acting role ever? Undoubtedly. Featuring one of the steamiest bed scenes in cinematic history? Absolutely. Not only will 'An Officer and a Gentleman' sweep you off your feet, it might also teach you a thing or two about that "L" word.
'Beach Rats' (Netflix)
A movie with intimate/thriller vibes is the sexy yet dark 'Beach Rats' on Netflix. Frankie is a Brooklyn teenager who is coming to terms with his sexuality, and doesn't yet want to give in to his attraction towards men. He chats with guys online and meets with them in hidden locations, all while ignoring his desire and being part of a hyper-masculine group of friends.
'Honey' (Amazon Prime)
Sure, 'Honey' might be verging on "American corny", but damn those dance moves are fire. Bursting with positivity, sexy dance moves, and a hypnotic Jessica Alba, the movie was one of the first teen dance titles from the early 2000s that paved the way for similar copycats such as 'Step Up'.
'Duck Butter' (Netflix)
A romantic experiment is the crux of 'Duck Butter'. Will 24 hours together, being intimate with one another, lead to a successful ending? There's only one way to find out. More thought-provoking than you might imagine, the movie delves deep into the concept of sex, with strong lead performances from Alia Shawkat and Laia Costa.
