Nothing is more exciting than sex, therefore, it stands to reason that some of the sexiest scenes ever caught on film are available in thriller movies. Sure, having sex makes people happier, fosters bonding, and gives birth to new life, but when it gets out of hand, it can also become painful, demeaning, and even homicidal.
Some sexual thrillers offer incredibly original narratives, despite the fact that most of them use clichés of their own. However, compared to tacky and depressing depictions of sex, some films are a little more self-aware. If you’re looking for a fascinating movie night, Netflix has a ton of sensual thrillers with beautiful individuals and sexy relationships that have taken a very dark turn – and these movies are ideal for anyone who can’t stand hokey rom-coms.
