Sex On Netflix: Did You Know That Netflix Has A “Steamy” Section?

Where to Stream

Hot Girls Wanted

In a famous 2014 article called “How Netflix Reverse Engineered Hollywood,” The Atlantic‘s Alexis Madrigal discovered that the streaming giant had created 76,897 “micro-genres” for its catalog, ranging from “Emotional Fight-the-System Documentaries” to “Period Pieces About Royalty Based on Real Life.” Well, would you be surprised to learn that among these 76,000-plus genres, a few of them are about some of the naughtier selections in their catalog?

Decider did some digging and found 61 different micro-genres that involve the word “steamy.” You can start really broad by looking at the entire “steamy” genre, or whittle down a bit by sub-genre (“Steamy Foreign Dramas”), time period (“Steamy Crime Movies from the 1980s”), or, for those of you with discerning taste, critic-approved steamy movies (like “Critically-acclaimed Steamy Independent Dramas”).

Of course, we took the liberty of picking out 10 of the steamiest movies on Netflix for you in our gallery above, but if you want to poke around a bit on your own to find sex on Netflix, have at it. In fact, we’ll make it easy for you:

As you may have discovered, just because a “steamy” micro-genre exists doesn’t necessarily mean that Netflix currently has a license to play shows or films that fit that description (apologies to those of you on the hunt for “Steamy Thrillers from the 1980s”). That said, Netflix is always adding (and dropping) titles from their collection, so keep this page bookmarked and refer back to it often on your hunt for sex scenes on Netflix.
