Skip navigation! Story from Movies. The sexiest movies aren't necessarily lurking in the adults-only section of HBO — or in the deleted archives of one's browser history. Often, the steamiest films are mainstream. Whether a flick actually features a crazy-hot love scene or a more innocent tryst between a forbidden couple, it's perfectly acceptable to find these movies tantalizing.
We all watch movies for different reasons. Some of us love the action of big-budget superhero flicks. Others enjoy the bursts of laughter of the latest comedies. Then, of course, there are the moviegoers that love the suspense of drama and thrillers.
The choices include erotic thrillers that will keep you on the edge of your seat, as well as more light-hearted portrayals of love and lust. Considered obscene by some, and the most erotic movie ever made by others, Last Tango in Paris is as ridden with controversy today as it was in when it originally screened. Director Bernardo Bertolucci said he was inspired by the raw art of British painter Francis Bacon to tell the story of a young Parisienne Maria Schneider and her sordid affair with an older American man Marlon Brando.
