Bull Durham (1988)

Bull Durham holds the distinction of being both one the finest film about baseball and one the sexiest romantic comedy of all time. Centered around a small town minor-league baseball team, the film follows a former Major League star as he’s brought to the minors to mentor a talented, but unfocused, hot head. Both men fall in love with Annie, a local fan who sleeps with one player every season in this brilliant ode to poetry and baseball. Light on sex, but dripping with sensuality, Bull Durham is a date movie that will help you get to first.

All I See Is You (2017)

It’s odd to see a movie this sad be so sexy. In All I See Is You, Blake Lively plays a gorgeous blind woman whose marriage begins to fall apart when she regains her sight. Free of relying on her husband as her guide through the world, her growing self-confidence inspires a new wave of sexual exploration and hard questions. Coupling sensuality with psychedelic special effects and cinematography is a powerful recipe. People who don’t mind their sexy movies dark and a little weird should take note.

Palm Swings (2017)

This cheesy late-night steamer sees a young married couple discover their neighbors are swingers after moving to Palm Springs. Turned on by the revelation, they decide to try their hand at opening their marriage, only to discover they might not have been as open-minded as they thought. An older cast elevates this sexy melodrama, which is far more entertaining that its silly cover art would suggest.

After a bad fight with her boyfriend, Sadie, a fledgling erotica novelist, needs to get away for a while. So she leaves town to go visit an ex, joining him and his friend Francesca at an Italian villa.

Orgies, groupies, intra-band sex: everyone who isn’t the devil seems to get laid. Cross yourself, then take off your pants.

Porn on Showtime: original series

The Borgias

If The Sopranos were the aspirational crime family of the ’00s, the Borgias held the title for the 15th century. The Borgias is a ruthless historical drama, rooted in murder and religious corruption in the name pursuing power. There’s also plenty of beautifully shot sex scenes. The series eventually starts to explore the concept of incest, though Game of Thrones proved that’s not a deal-breaker for many viewers.

Californication

Showtime’s hit comedy Californication is sort of a sex addiction-fueled cousin to Curb Your Enthusiasm, full of morally repugnant characters you’ll want to follow anyway. David Duchovny stars as Hank Moody, a novelist who moves to Los Angeles when the film rights to one of his books are purchased. Struggling to juggle writer’s block, a steady stream of women, and his life as a single father, Hank consistently finds himself sabotaged by his own arrogance. Duchovny’s charming performance anchors the series, giving him humanity even when his libido gets him in trouble. If you removed the graphic sex, this show could be a hit on A&E. Of course, each episode would also be five minutes shorter.

The L Word

When it debuted in 2004, The L Word was the first TV show to focus entirely on a group of queer women. While understandably criticized for mostly focusing on conventionally beautiful and skinny cis white women, The L Word also holds the distinction of showing the wildly nuanced world of lesbian sex in a way that traditionally heteronormative movies and series haven’t. Despite what media directed by straight men has taught us, lesbian sex is not monolithic, and The L Word explored a broad range of its nuances. The result is an intensely erotic soap opera, with characters you’ll fall in love with and betrayals that hurt. Just don’t judge it too harshly for the last season.

Polyamory: Married & Dating

The makers of Polyamory seem to want the show to be a thoughtful examination of the ups and downs of open relationships. Showtime, on the other hand, wanted a softcore show. It’s viewers who win with the compromise, a sexy mix of obscured real sex, drama, and interview footage from actual couples.

Secret Diary of a Call Girl

Hannah Baxter’s parents are positive she’s working as a legal secretary, but their college graduate daughter has a secret. At night she lives as Belle, an exclusive London escort, having sex with men to fund her lavish lifestyle. At first its all fun and games, but when her two worlds threaten to merge, Hannah has to act fast to cover her tracks. Sexy, often funny, and just trashy enough to be fun, Secret Diary of a Call Girl is a steamy delight.

Shameless

Shameless is a dark comedy, anchored by incredible performances from William H. Macy and Emmy Rossum, and a steady stream of sex scenes. Macy stars as Frank Gallagher, a single father of six kids and an alcoholic. His eldest daughter Fiona, played by Rossum, does her best to hold the family together with hysterical and occasionally heartbreaking results. It may not sound like an erotic story, but tell that to the people who compile each season’s sex scenes on sites like Pornhub to watch later. Don’t just look it up online.

After escaping a bad relationship, Ashley Pendleton finds a mysterious erotic novel entitled SLAVE. Her investigation into the book opens a door to the world of BDSM, a place where discipline, pain, and sexual pleasures co-exist. Flirting with kink and poloyamory, Submission is an erotically charged ride starring actual porn performers.
