16 TV Shows & Movies That Are Almost Too Dirty To Be On Netflix

Magnolia Pictures

One of the wonders of Netflix is its prolificacy. It's a place you can go to relive the joys of your youth, and to find some seriously sexy content (not with the same movie or TV show, most likely). There's so much variety on one streaming site that it's sometimes easy to get lost in the silly or serious pieces of content without ever discovering the many raunchy movies and shows offered on the site. And what a pity that is, because there are plenty of shows and movies that are almost too dirty to be on Netflix out there for you to watch.

Netflix obviously isn't a porn site, but there are a great deal of movies and shows that will make you wonder how — and why — they passed the site's censors. Actually, on second thought, you probably won't be questioning why so much because, as the old adage goes, it's best to not look a gift horse in the mouth. The site's dirtier fare ranges from arthouse foreign films to Netflix-produced shows, and they definitely give a new meaning to "Netflix and chill."

Whether or not you're watching these shows and movies to turn up the heat with your partner or just to broaden your Netflix-horizons, these are bound to make you think, "I wonder what this is doing to my algorithm preferences..."

1. 'Nymphomaniac: Volume I And II'

Movieclips Coming Soon on YouTube

TheSE edgy films are written and directed by Lars von Trier, and the title is pretty much a dead giveaway that the movie is not something you'd want to watch with your S.O.'s parents. Nymphomaniac also fills the gap between Even Stevens Shia LaBeouf and frequently-arrested performance artist Shia LaBeouf.

2. 'Orange Is The New Black'

The popular Netflix original goes where most network TV's explicitness-parameters cannot. Naturally, if you lock a bunch of people up in an enclosed space with not much to do, naughtiness is gonna ensue.

3. 'Y Tu Mamá También'

This movie has everything. Sex in cars, sex in beds, sex in twos, sex in threes. Everything else in between is pretty great, too. Subtitles optional.

4. 'The Little Death'

Magnolia Pictures & Magnet Releasing on YouTube

This movie includes a lot of talk about sex, which is pretty refreshing. It's a lesson in how talking with your partner can be key to getting the satisfaction you deserve, and it is pretty fun to watch. Seeing as "the little death" translates to "la petit mort'" in French and is used to describe orgasms, you can bet it's a pretty raunchy film.

5. 'Californication'

Hot Scenes on YouTube

David Duchovny leads this steamy series that originally aired on Showtime. Considering its name, you can guess that there is a lot of California and a lot of fornication.

6. 'Bang Gang (Une Histoire D'amour Moderne)'

ONE Media on YouTube

This movie is literally all about sex. It's a French drama about teenagers playing sex games, and it is intense.

7. 'Weekend'

This movie shows a romance between two men in a way that few movies do: very explicitly. It's also a realistic portrayal of how complicated things can get once sex is involved.

8. 'Take This Waltz'

Movieclips Coming Soon on YouTube

Would you ever guess that a Seth Rogen movie would be considered steamy? Sarah Silverman is also in this film, as are Michelle Williams and Luke Kirby. Lots of full frontal nudity and relatable woes of longterm relationships are to be found in this female-written and directed film.

9. 'How We Fell In Love'

Movieclips Film Festivals & Indie Films on YouTube

This is the perfect movie for Orange is the New Black fans as it stars Matt McGorry aka John Bennett (also because OITNB fans generally aren't known to shy away from sex scenes). It's also cool because it's about his affair with an older women, and who doesn't love some mature content about a mature lady?

10. 'Easy'

Netflix on YouTube

Easy is a series of vignettes that peek into various people's sex lives. It's voyeruism at its finest, and it offers honest insights about how people navigate intimacy.

11. 'Wetlands'

Moviepilot Trailers on YouTube

You know that when even the trailer is NSFW, it's pretty damn dirty. Wetlands is a German film that follows a young, outspoken feminist as she explores her sexuality. It's a good example of how foreign films often push the boundaries and examine sexual taboos.

12. 'Shameless'


Like Californication, Shameless is a Showtime series, and it's also very NSFW. Why you would be watching TV at work is unclear, but if you're going to do it, you should probably steer away from Shameless in case a coworker happens to sneak a peak during one of its many sex scenes. It could cost you a trip to HR.

13. 'Blue Is The Warmest Color'

Movieclips Trailers on YouTube

Its sex scenes have been deemed unrealistic by many LGBTQ vieweres, but Blue is the Warmest Color is still pretty steamy.

14. 'I Am Love'

Movieclips Trailer Vault on YouTube

It takes a while for this movie to heat up, but when it does, it is hot. It's only right that the Italian film on this list should take its time to get real naughty, as the Italians are known for living "la dolce vita" and taking their time to enjoy the ride.

15. 'Weeds'

I could rave about Weeds for many reasons — its writing, its acting, and its soundtrack, but we're here to talk dirty, so I'll just say this: Weeds has some of the hottest sex scenes ever to grace Netflix. The fact that so much of its plot revolves around taboos and scandals makes for a great deal of naughtiness.

16. 'A Teacher'

Moviefone on YouTube

A teacher-student dynamic is popular among pornos, and this film is basically a longer, more artistic piece of pornography. It lasts an hour and 15 minutes, so it's not much longer than a porn video, though, don't worry.

Get ready for a steamy marathon session of Netflix.
