#1 Nymphomaniac: Volume I and II. Lars Von Trier without a doubt has to be on this list. The Nymphomaniac movies tell the story of a sex addict.

Are there moments that make you squirm? Yes. It has it all – even some spanking. [Read:BDSM tips and tricks for curious first timers]
#2 Blue Is the Warmest Color. This French film tells the story of a teenage girl exploring her sexuality with a blue-haired art student. It’s a passionate love story, and because it’s a French film, add another layer of passion on top.
Once you press play, you won’t be able to stop watching, so if you have any plans, cancel them because this movie is over three hours long. The scenes are extremely sexual and passionate. And there’s quite a bit of nudity, so don’t watch this with your parents—it won’t be fun for you.
#3 I Am Love. Sex and drama, how can the two not go together? I know most people think she looks like an alien, but Tilda Swinton plays quite the sex kitten in this film. Coming from a Russian-born matriarch of a rich Italian family who has an affair with the chef. Unfortunately, the affair threatens to completely ruin the life she has. Dun dun duuuuun.
#4 Y Tu Mana Tambien. What do you get when you have two young teenage guys and a 28-year-old married woman on a road trip together? Well, you’ll have to watch and see. Trust me, this movie includes everything that’s probably going through your mind.
It covers a decent amount of fantasies you may be dreaming about. It’s also directed by Alfonso Cuaron, if you don’t know who he is, he directed Children of Men and Gravity—so it’s going to be good. [Read: 12 arousing sex fantasies to try in real life]
#5 Fatal Attraction. Here’s the story line: Man has affair with a woman, man wants it to end, the woman doesn’t want to end it and goes insane. This is a pretty classic story line, but Fatal Attraction is the first “woman goes insane after affair” storyline. It’s heated, it’s passionate, it’s naughty. And it’s from the 80s so they all have crazy hairdos.
#6 Gloria. There aren’t too many movies out there that focus around middle-aged people and are also steamy. Usually, it’s always about young, hot people, but in this case, you’ll be pleasantly surprised. This Chilean film follows the story of a middle-aged, divorced woman who’s looking for love by going to singles’ dance clubs. Does she find love? Of course. Does it come with its own drama? How could it not?
#7 Basic Instinct. The movie created Sharon Stone and the interrogation scene, well, that made her into the sex symbol she is today. Stone’s character, a crime novelist, becomes a suspect to the death of a rock star.
