It’s not easy to find porn on Amazon Prime. The e-commerce giant is designed to sell your products you didn’t realize you needed—not to help you find smut to get off to. Unlike the porn on Netflix, Amazon doesn’t have a “Steamy” category to narrow down your search either. In fact, there are no sub-categories at all. If you want to search on Amazon, you have to search by genre and nothing else. And even then, Amazon has considerably less to work with than Netflix. 

The exception would be Amazon’s foreign film library, which came in handy for this list. If you like getting turned on while reading subtitles, you’re about to have a newfound appreciation for your Amazon Prime membership. I scrolled through more than 1,400 listing to find the sexiest movies on Amazon Prime. Unlike Netflix, Amazon currently doesn’t have any streaming movies we could find that feature unsimulated sex. However, there’s plenty of almost-porn to be found.

The best Amazon Prime porn

1) When Night Is Falling (1995)

When Night Is Falling originally received an NC-17 rating for its graphic sex scenes, but this thoughtful drama has more than nudity going for it. Camille is a professor at a religious college who finds herself slowly falling in love with Petra, a circus performer she meets on the street one night. Struggling with her sexuality, and religious job, Camille’s journey is as thoughtful as it is erotic. Viewers longin for more LGBTQ films directed by women should immediately add this lost classic to your watch list right now.

2) Obsession (2015)

Moving to the countryside was supposed to bring Simone’s family closer together. Instead, Simone finds herself in an increasingly passionate affair with a handsome handyman. The acting is much better than the plot suggests, but that doesn’t mean the sex isn’t explicit. Amazon is streaming the unrated version of the film, so you’ll catch every second of the action.

3) Stripped to Kill (1987)

This ’80s cheeseball classic sees a smoking hot detective take a job at a strip club to uncover a serial killer. Anyone who grew up watching softcore porn on cable will appreciate this movie’s sleazy charms, but buried under the hairspray is a b-movie classic. The lighting, costumes, and direction are surprisingly strong, creating an almost punk rock grindhouse thriller.

4) Gia (1998)

This HBO made-for-TV biopic features a star-making performance from Angelina Jolie as ’70s supermodel Gia Carangi. Carangi was a high school dropout who became the biggest models in America before drug addiction and mental health issues took her out in the prime of her life. Jolie turns in a stunning performance, and the film’s examination of Carangi’s sexuality is erotic and, at times, sad.

5) Coffy (1973)

The amount of actual sex on screen in Coffy may be limited, but the erotic sensuality of Pam Grier earns this film a spot on the list. Sure, there are sex scenes, but every scene Pam Grier’s vigilante ex-nurse graces the screen oozes power and sexuality. Problematic by today’s standards, Coffy is a violent and often misogynistic film elevated by its incredible lead.

6) Bound (2015)

50 Shades of Grey was a disappointment for many fans, focusing more on the characters than the sex. Bound makes no such mistakes. This direct-to-DVD erotic thriller is a quickie ripoff of 50 Shades… but don’t let its direct-to-DVD pedigree scare you off, this movie has plenty of steamy goodness to offer. Starring Buffy the Vampire Slayer’s Charisma Carpenter, Bound follows the bored daughter of a wealthy real estate tycoon as she is introduced to the world of BDSM by a new young lover.

7) Sirens (1994)

Hugh Grant, Tara Fitzgerald, Sam Neill, and Elle Macpherson star in this sexy comedy about erotic art and God’s judgement. When a painting is deemed a work of blasphemy by a minster, the pastor and his wife pay a visit to its creator. What they didn’t expect to find is the three sexy models living with him. Playful, and at times honestly dramatic, Sirens is the kind of movie we’d recommend even if Elle Macpherson wasn’t naked for most of the film.

8) Adore (2013)

Movies don’t need to show explicit nudity to be sexy as hell, as this taboo tale of lifelong friendship shows. Adore follows two childhood friends who find themselves falling in love with each other’s sons. Everyone is of age, but that doesn’t make the story any less forbidden. Naomi Watts and Robin Wright are stunning as a pair of mothers torn between morality and lust.

9) Night Call Nurses (1972)

Roger Corman produced a host of cheap sexploitation movies in the 70s, often creating his own subgenres in the process. Night Call Nurses is a nurse-sploitation movie centered on the lives of three naughty nurses. Time hasn’t been kind to Night Call Nurses, turning an already campy hit into a “so-bad-it’s-good” classic. Between outsmarting serial killers, cults, and sex counseling these there’s plenty of sex and nudity to be found. Just don’t go looking for much of a plot.

10) Never Forever (2007)

Never Forever tests the limits of what a film can deal with in terms of sadness and still be considered erotic, but its sex scenes are undeniable. Vera Farmiga stars as Sophie, a woman whose husband is suffering from a deep depression due to his inability to get her pregnant. When a fertility doctor is unwilling to inseminate her in secret, she strikes up an affair with an illegal immigrant she meets at her clinic. What starts at a paid sex in an attempt to have a baby becomes a protracted affair, as Sophie finds solace from her husband’s depression in the arms of another man. David McInnis gives a heart-rending performance as Sophie’s husband Andrew, while Ha Jung-woo’s striking sympathetic portrayal as the other man gives the role an empathetic energy that a lesser actor might not have been able to pull off.

11) A Very Natural Thing (1974)

A Very Natural Thing is remarkable for being one of the first gay films intended for mainstream distribution. Kicking off at the 1973 New York City Gay Pride parade, the film begins as almost a documentary, chronicling an important time in American LGBTQ history. But as the parade ends, the story shifts focus to David, a school teacher who recently left his life at a monastery, as he explores his burgeoning homosexuality. A Very Natural Thing is an artifact of the era before AIDS, focusing on issues of polyamory, ‘70s gay liberation, and the place of traditional relationships in the community. It’s a priceless piece of history for its archival footage, but if you’re just here for the sexy stuff, it features plenty of passionate love scenes and casual full-frontal male nudity. That alone makes it an outlier on this list.

12) The Rowdy Girls (2000)

For many horny teens in the ‘90s, Shannon Tweed, Julie Strain, and Deanna Brooks are the holy trinity of late-night softcore cinema. This 2000 direct-to-video B-western joins them together to fight evil in 1886 as the Rowdy Girls, a sex band of outlaws fighting to earn a living in the Wild West. This is 100 percent a softcore porn film—but a shockingly entertaining one full of absurdly staged, low-budget action scenes and fake breasts that are certainly not of the period. If the heavy films on this list have got you down, The Rowdy Girls is just the kind of mindless nudity to lift your spirits.

13) The Handmaiden (2016)

This erotic thriller comes from the twisted mind of Park Chan-wook, who brought Old Boy and Sympathy for Lady Vengeance to the nightmares of viewers around the world. Like each of Park Chan-wook’s other films giving away too much of the plot would be a massive disservice to viewers, just know the sex scenes in this movie have earned it an NC-17 if it wasn’t unrated. At its heart, this is a film about a long con, but wrapped around that story is an intensely sensual tail of seduction and cultural warfare. The Handmaiden is one of the finest films on this list. Even if you’re not interested in nudity, you need to set aside time to give it a watch.

14) Love Letters (1984)

Following the death of her mother, a young radio DJ named Anna finds out she had spent the last fifteen years having an affair. Jamie Lee Curtis stars in this exploration of forbidden lust. Inspired by her mother Anna sets out to have an affair of her own, learning the hard lessons that go with inserting yourself into someone else’s romance. Curtis had very few nude scenes throughout her career, but this film is a notable exception. Thankfully director Amy Holden keeps this from falling into the territory of exploitation despite the film being produced by Roger Corman.

15) Her Composition (2018)

Here’s an interesting twist on the old “student turns to sex to pay for college” cliche. In Her Composition a talented music major finds creative inspiration in the sounds her clients make during her evenings as a escort. In less talented hands this could easily be a crap late-night softie, but star Joslyn Jensen and director Stephan Littger deliver a compelling mix of passion and tension. Coupled that with gorgeous cinematography and if anyone walks in you watching they’ll just assume you’re watching a nice indie flick, and they’ll be right.

16) Friends Effing Friends Effing Friends (2016)

This hyper low-budget dramedy may not have enough sex to qualify as a softcore porn, but it certainly tests the limits. Late-night cable fans will appreciate the appearance of Julian Wells. Otherwise, this is a standard “what’s it all mean when you have to grow up” romcom you’ve seen a hundred times before. Except the sex scenes are well done, with far more humor and kink than you might anticipate from the title. Wells has a particularly out-there scene involving a bunny suit and a carrot that has to be seen to be believed.

17) The Adventures of Anais Nin (2015)

Anais Nin was a groundbreaking writer, filling journals with private thoughts that would scandalize the conservative world of the early 20th century. Sadly, most of her work was published after her death, so many people didn’t discover her until after her time. This docudrama recreates the tales of sexual exploration from her journals, providing an experience that’s equally educational and erotic. Check out Nin’s book, Delta of Venus, when you’re done watching.

18) Road House (1989)

Set in a dystopian world, not unlike our own, where bouncers are world-famous, Road House sees a mysterious cooler come to a small town to stop crime and save a bar. The quintessential “movie for guys who like movies,” Road House is a violent blend of sexual tension and sweaty shirtless bar fights that has a little something for everyone. From the gratuitous Patrick Swayze nipple to the love scene with Kelly Lynch, Road House remains the most sensual 80s action movie of all time

19) Body of Evidence (1993)

This controversial 1993 film doesn’t feature numerous graphic sex scenes, but Body of Evidence still belongs on this list for its tantalizing premise: a person suspected of murder by sex. Madonna, Willem Dafoe, and Julianne Moore save the film’s goofy script with their strong performances. Body of Evidence‘s original 101minute cut earned an NC-17 rating from the MPAA, so a 99minute version was released in theaters, while the uncut version made it to home video. Amazon’s version splits the difference at 100 minutes, but rest assured: This is still a borderline pornographic movie.

20) What Other Couples Do (2013)

Polyamory and swinging are having a bit of a cultural moment thanks to porn, Tinder, and a general cultural openness to discussing the idea. In What Other Couples Do, four married couples in L.A. play a game of Seven Minutes in Heaven with each other’s spouses, with hysterical and touching results. If you need nudity to find eroticism, look somewhere else. But if you can find heat radiating from a situation, What Other Couples Do is a sensual movie for an unconventional date night.

21) God’s Own Country (2017)

This working-class gay romance, set in the hills of Yorkshire, England centers around a young sheep farmer named Johnny Saxby. Numbing himself with binge drinking to forget his boring existence, Saxby’s life changes with the arrival of a Romanian migrant worker. Suddenly finding himself exploring new passions, Saxby’s life will never be the same. Featuring beautiful sex scenes, and the gorgeous English countryside, God’s Own Country is a hidden dramatic gem that’s also hot as hell.

22) Disobedience (2017)

This award-winning tale of people torn between God, community, and forbidden love stars Rachel Weisz and Rachel McAdams. A woman returns to the Orthodox Jewish community of her childhood for her father’s funeral after years of being estranged from her family and culture. After the ceremony she sticks around, rekindling a love that has haunted her for years. Powerful, yet sexy, Disobedience is a religious drama with an LGBTQ twist.

23) Private Lessons 2 (1993)

The name Private Lessons 2 might make you think this is just another mindless piece of late-night softcore porn. In a way you’d be right, but Private Lessons 2 rises above the schlock thanks to its legitimately smart directing and sexy cast. Viewers follow a bored fashion photographer as she rediscovers her sensual side with the aid of her hot chauffeur. The plot is silly, but you won’t mind once the imaginative and shockingly explicit sex scenes start. One actually looks straight out of a 1980s Michael Mann movie. Don’t miss out on one of the finest softcore flicks of all time.

24) Friday the 13th Part V: A New Beginning (1985)

Slasher movies are incredible horny. There’s nothing sexy about murder, but in keeping with slasher movie traditions, if someone has they’re gonna die. Friday the 13th Part V might be the most sexual graphic entry in the series, with bountiful nudity throughout. Oddly you don’t get to see much in the way of sex, just the naked aftermath, but as any fan of late-night cable can attest, sometimes that’s enough.

25) Lady Chatterley’s Lover (1982)

Polyamory is having a cultural moment, but D.H. Lawrence was exploring the concept in 1928 with his brilliant novel Lady Chatterley’s Lover. This 1982 film adaptation keeps the original novels controversial plot about a woman who takes a lover when her husband is left impotent by an injury. It just spices things up with 80s style sex scenes. Star Sylvia Kristel is breathtaking, but her onscreen chemistry with co-star Oliver Mellors is what makes the film an sensual classic.
