Sex in film is the presentation of aspects of human sexuality in film. The presence in films of any form of sexuality has been controversial since the development of the medium. Some films containing such sexuality have been criticized by religious groups or have been banned or the subject of censorship by governments, or both. In countries with a film rating system , films containing sex scenes typically receive a restricted classification. Nudity in film may be regarded as sexual or as non-sexual. An erotic film is usually a film that has an erotic quality that may create sexual feelings,  as well as a philosophical contemplation concerning the aesthetics of sexual desire, sensuality and romantic love.
Welcome to a countdown of the greatest sex films ever made about the small but preoccupying part of the human experience known as sex - from coming-of-age lesbian dramas to gritty portrayals of sex addiction to, erm, loincloths. Put simply: these are the sex movies with the most to say about doing it, charting a history of how our attitudes towards sex and nudity on the big screen have shifted through the decades. The late 80s and early 90s saw the quickfire rise and fall of one of cinemas most fascinating subgenres: the erotic thriller. Hollywood tends to work in trends, but rarely as frenzied or short-lived as this.
This list is about a very specific theme of film: Movies that are about sex and not much else. Don't get me wrong, these are great movies in their own right, but they're also stuffed with sex, sexual tension, and sexual tension broken by more sex. In other words, the perfect film to watch when you're in the mood for something super-sexy, but don't feel like a porn film though, if you're looking for those, you can find some great ones here. Sometimes the sex is an integral part of the plot, sometimes it's just a happy byproduct of sexy situations in the storytelling, but either way, the heat level on these movies is a minimum of five fire emojis.
