17 Movies That Are Way Dirtier Than '50 Shades Of Grey'

20th Century Fox

Ever since its release, Fifty Shades of Grey has become the go-to sexual fantasy film for countless people who love erotic, romantic movies. However, it's not the only movie out there that fans of the genre should check out if they're looking for more R-rated content in their lives. There are plenty more sexy movies around that are worth giving a shot, including tons of sexy movies on Netflix that, in my eyes at least, are even dirtier than Fifty Shades.

Seeing sex and sexuality in film is a pretty common occurrence these days, and Netflix has become a great, easy place for hungry audiences to find some of the most sensual and sexual films available for our viewing pleasure. Ever since the release of Fifty Shades of Grey, movie watchers have been in need of more films that push the sexiness bill even further, and thankfully, there are plenty of good options available to see. The below 17 movies combine sexual nuance with intelligent storylines, and whether they're about love affairs, new romance, self exploration, or BDSM, they're all worth checking out. And, as said, I believe that they might be even sexier than Fifty Shades of Grey. Best of all? They're all available on Netflix. Get watching.

4. Basic Instinct


Two decades ago, director Paul Verhoen shocked film viewers when he gave us this neo-noir, which featured a naked, bisexual Sharon Stone. The open leg scene has become one of the most popular sexy scenes in modern film, and there is no doubt that if you watch it now, it's still pretty shocking.

Set in the San Fernando Valley in 1977, Boogie Nights is about teenage busboy Eddie Adams (Mark Wahlberg) who becomes an adult film star named Dirk Diggler.
