1
'Chloe' (2010)

Amanda Seyfried, Julianne Moore, and Liam Neeson star in this steamy gotcha thriller from Atom Egoyen. When Moore's stilted wife Catherine suspects her husband (Neeson) of having an affair, she hires Chloe (Seyfried), a call girl, to lure him into an adultery trap. But Chloe has other plans, setting her eyes on Catherine, and a sexy game of cat and mouse ensues.

'Haraamkhor' (2017)

A little bit of counter-culture (but mainly inappropriate) sexuality, a little bit of infidelity, a little bit of violence — this Indian drama has everything you may need if you liked watching Fifty Shades Darker. -Jordana Lipsitz

3
'Love' (2015)

When Gaspar Noé's Love premiered at the 2015 Cannes Film Festival, all anyone could talk about was the fact that the film uses un-simulated sex scenes; all of the actors on screen are having real sex. But Love is still a little more than porn, with its charming story of Murphy, an american student who revisits his past relationships with two women in this fragmented, dream-like film.

'40 Days and 40 Nights' (2002)

The feather scene. The feather scene. I think that's all I need to say here. But really, the feather scene. Sure, a movie about a guy giving up sex for Lent might not seem like something similar to Fifty Shades...but the feather scene, guys. Trust me on this. -Jordana Lipsitz

5
'Newness' (2017)

Nicholas Hoult and Laia Costa star in this sexy romance about a couple who decide to test out their devotion to one another by opening up their relationships to sexual encounters with other people. What is at first a steamy experiment becomes a bit of a sexual spiral as the two try and one-up each other. This one's kind of sad, but is still super hot.

6
'Blue is the Warmest Color' (2013)

This steamy story of two young French women who begin a passionate relationship won the Palme D'or at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival. Stars Léa Seydoux and Adèle Exarchopoulos were also given the award for their raw, exposed portrayal of young love and the extensive and explicit sex scenes. The movie even earned an NC-17 rating stateside, so you know what to expect.

7
'Ibiza: Love Drunk' (2018)

Ibiza: Love Drunk veers more into romantic comedy than steamy thriller, but there are plenty of raunchy, sexy times to make it one of the movies similar to Fifty Shades of Grey on Netflix. Gillian Jacobs stars as a weary PR office lackey who is sent on a work trip to Spain but naturally the trip turns out to be about everything other than work.

8
'The Guest' (2014)

When Dan Stevens left Downton Abbey behind, he chose to play the character most unlike Matthew Crawley we've ever seen. Stevens plays a soldier who returns home to the family of his best friend who died in Afghanistant. But the shots of him shirtless emerging form the shower and engaged in steamy scenes with Maika Monroe are pretty much all you need to know about this creepy yet sexy thriller.

9
'Blue Valentine' (2010)

Ok, this is another melancholy story with a bit of a sad ending, but the scenes in which Ryan Gosling's Dean and Michelle Williams' Cindy are falling in love and getting their freak on are really lovely. The film was originally given an NC-17 rating by the MPAA for a scene in which Dean performs oral sex on Cindy, but when Ryan Gosling called out the organization for sexism, the rating was changed to an R.

10
'Below Her Mouth' (2016)

This Canadian erotic romantic drama explores what happens when a seemingly straight woman becomes infatuated with a mysterious woman she meets at a club. Jasmine (Natalie Krill) is a successful fashion editor living with her fiancé. One night she meets Dallas (Erika Linder), who pursues her. Jasmine turns Dallas down, but can't get her out of her head. "When Jasmine finally succumbs to Dallas's advances, the two women embark on a steamy affair that forces her to reevaluate her life."

11
'Gypsy' (2017)

Ok so this one's a series, and not a movie, but 10 hours of steamy scenes and sexy actors is better than two, right? Naomi Watts stars in this series about a psychologist who secretly inserts herself into the private lives of her patients, seducing partners, and infiltrating their lives in a scandalous way, all the while attempting to maintain a pretty rough and kinky relationship with her own husband.

12
'Fifty' (2015)

Fifty and Fifty Shades of Grey might share a number in their movie titles, but they couldn't be more different...well except for the sensual sex scenes. This Nigerian film tells the story of four women on the verge of turning 50, and of course some of it has to do with steamy affairs with younger men, with older men, or both.

13
'Juanita' (2019)

Academy Award nominee Alfre Woodard stars in this sexy comedy about a woman with three grown children and a dead end life searching for some new adventures. While she's not indulging in sexy fantasies with actor Blair Underwood, who hilariously plays himself, she takes of to Montana where she falls for a Native American restaurant owner played by Adam Beach.
