From soap operas to binge-worthy SF series, Netflix has them all – including a generous selection of adult movies on Netflix!

Many loved this movie when it came out because of Elizabeth Berkley, also known as Saved by The Bell’s Jesse, and because it has a good story to which many young girls can easily relate.This is one of the many adult movies on the Netflix US market.

Naomi, played by Berkley, is a drifter unable to find her way who ends up in Las Vegas and becomes a showgirl. She must claw her way to the top, including sleeping with whoever necessary.

Whenever a movie is inspired by true events, it always seems to have more of an impact on its audience; such is the case with Adulterers, an intense and dramatic movie that will keep you on the edge. Don’t worry, there are some steamy sex scenes too – after all, it’s included on this list of Netflix adult movies.

Runtime: 1 hour 27 minutes
IMDb Rating: 5.2
Rotten Tomatoes Score: 77%
Streaming on: Netflix US

When it comes to adult movies on Netflix, it doesn’t get any better than 13 Cameras. This twisted movie plays alongside those who have voyeur instincts and will have you on the edge of your seat thanks to a few horror movie elements which go smoothly with the plot.

The movie introduces us to Claire and Ryan who are about to have a baby and move to a new home to accommodate their growing family. However, what they don’t realize is that someone is onto their every move: the landlord likes to watch others, both in the bedroom and out. Even though not the best-rated movie on the streaming service, 13 Cameras is one of the most popular Netflix adult movies.

7. Sleeping Beauty

Director: Julia Leigh
Runtime: 1 hour 41 minutes
IMDb Rating: 5.3
Rotten Tomatoes Score: 49%
Streaming on: Netflix Finland, Sweden, Denmark, Norway, and Brazil; unfortunately, this movie is no longer available on Netflix US.

Few movies managed to portray such a provocative and shocking atmosphere like Sleeping Beauty did. The movie tells the story of Lucy (played by actress Emily Browning), a young university student who displays a surprisingly passive attitude towards her own life, like allowing a coin flip to decide the outcome of a casual sex encounter or showing extreme resilience to the menial tasks at her job.

But after following up on an ad for a lingerie waitress, she ends up in training for a new line of work: she needs to submit to her clients after being sedated. After a short while, Lucy realizes she is not as resilient as she first thought and decides to see what happens to her during her “heavy sleep”. This alone is more than enough to send chills down your spine, but her discoveries are what make this one of the best Netflix adult movies of all time.

6. The Exterminating Angels

Release Date on Netflix: October 2016
Director: Jean-Claude Brisseau
Runtime: 1 hour 40 minutes
IMDb Rating: 5.5
Rotten Tomatoes Score: 48%
Streaming on: Netflix Finland. Unfortunately, this movie is no longer available on Netflix US

This remake of the 1962 classic has a little more spice than the original, which is why we included it in our list of adult movies on Netflix. Some compared it to Fifty Shades of Gray – just without the millionaire storyline.

While working hard on his next thriller masterpiece which required screen tests with a plethora of nude women, a filmmaker discovers there are many erotic taboos that can be quite pleasurable. He decides to show the world how eroticism can be enthralling by opening people’s minds and allowing them to see into a world that many call taboo. His goal is to give something new to moviegoers; however, he goes too far and it doesn’t end well.

5. Wetlands

Release Date on Netflix: April 2015
Director: David Wnendt
Runtime: 1 hour 49 minutes
IMDb Rating: 5.8
Rotten Tomatoes Score: 89%
Streaming on: Netflix US, Puerto Rico.

Wetlands tells the story of an eccentric young girl struggling with her parents’ divorce, with controversial views on hygiene, sexually experimenting and going over social norms with her best friend. This alone paves the way to one of the best adult movies on Netflix. After having a grooming accident which is enhanced by her lack of hygiene, Helen Memel ends up in the hospital where bond is developing between her and her nurse, Robin.

Although this movie definitely isn’t for everyone, it’s a great piece of comedy that walks us through the struggles of a young and troubled girl while displaying a lot of depth. Some even went as far as to call it the German Amelie, which is definitely a compliment.

4. Bang Gang (A Modern Love Story)

Release Date on Netflix: October 2016
Director: Eva Husson
Runtime: 1 hour 38 minutes
IMDb Rating: 5.5
Rotten Tomatoes Score: 66%
Streaming on: Netflix US, Canada

With only 5.5 on IMDb and 66% on RottenTomatoes, Bang Gang (A Modern Love Story) still is one of the most popular Netflix adult movies. This production introduces us to a resourceful teen girl willing to go (very) far for the attention of the boy she is in love with. Thus, she invites her friends to a game which ultimately helps them discover their limits, desires, and real priorities while constantly testing and pushing the limits of their sexuality. Their game cannot go unnoticed for too long and when it’s revealed, the teenagers must face the consequences.

The movie does a great job at portraying their radically different reactions and how each of them deals with the consequences of their actions. It’s by far one of the best adult movies on Netflix.

3. En la cama

Release Date on Netflix: November 2014
Director: Matías Bize
Runtime: 1 hour 20 minutes
IMDb Rating: 6.3
Rotten Tomatoes Score: 40%
Streaming on: Netflix US and UK

There is a great deal of substance to En La Cama, one of the best Netflix adult movies. The director goes deep into the characters’ intimate truths, insecurities, and intimacy issues. The essence of this movie is that people can use sex to hide who they really are.

En la Cama starts with a bang, literally. The opening credits shows a young couple having passionate sex. It seems that these two 20-something strangers met for a casual sexual encounter in a motel. Neither one of them are virtuous, but this night proves to be quite different than either of them could have ever imagined. Any more information would spoil this movie beyond return, so it’s better to just watch it.

2. Love Steaks

Release Date on Netflix: 2016
Director: Jakob Lass
Runtime: 1 hour 29 minutes
IMDb Rating: 6.4
Rotten Tomatoes Score: N/A
Streaming on: Netflix US

Developed by Potsdam-Babelsberg Film University, Love Streaks follows the “Rules are Freedom” manifesto. The creators, therefore, aimed to plan the unpredictable.

Love Steaks opens up in a luxurious hotel during a busy night. Clemens is the new addition of the wellness team, while Lara is an experienced chef who wants to assert her authority in the hotel’s kitchen. He’s a shy and sweet guy, while she’s a sharp and swift gal. The two meet in the elevator and soon start a secret and wild love affair lead by Laura.

1. Nymphomaniac Volume 1

Release Date on Netflix: 2016
Director: Lars von Trier
Runtime: 1 hour 57 minutes
IMDb Rating: 7
Rotten Tomatoes Score: 75%
Streaming on: Netflix US.

Some adult movies on Netflix border along the lines of pornography without actually being classified as such and Nymphomaniac Volume 1 is definitely one of those. This movie has elements of danger, erotica, and compassion, all mixed into one.

Charlotte Gainsbourg plays the part of Joe, a self-diagnosed nymphomaniac who has been a sex addict most of her life. After being beaten and left for dead in a back alley, she is rescued by an old bachelor played by Stellan Skarsgård. He nurses her back to health while she tells him all about her sexual excursions and the many problems that emerged because of her sexual appetite. There is never a dull moment in this pornographic work of art – moreover, you may find yourself laughing at some of Joe’s shenanigans.


There’s a decent collection of adult movies on Netflix you can choose from. They’re not the highest-rated according to IMDb or RottenTomatoes, but they tell fascinating stories nonetheless.
