When it comes to identifying what makes a movie sexy , there's a certain "je ne sais come" quality that you're looking for. There is no through line when it comes to the plot lines of the below ten movies, but there is a certain vibe that each one has in common—a chemistry and physical yearning, subtle or not, that envelops the viewer and instills a bit of sexual tension in the air. That sexual energy knows no bounds. It just manifests between two parties and develops into this insatiable urge, only remedied when two bodies meet on screen. That's also not to say that the climax comes to be, either. Sometimes the sexiest part of the film is the lack of fulfillment, taking viewers all the way to the edge, but never driving off. When we're scrolling through the list of films available to us, sometimes it's that skin hunger that drives our decisions, and hey: no shame. We've all been there. So instead of wasting that precious viewing time trying to decipher what's hot and what's not, just check out the below list and get to watching.
