A
P.Mohamed Kutty

Erotic movies have been in the cinema for as long as we can remember. After all, these types of films are there for a reason. Whether that is to squeeze out the romance in a story or to spice up a dull plot, we all ought to find tons of erotic scenes in lots of the movies we have watched. Sex and the cinema seem inseparable and long-time movie fans know it. Long before the era of the 'Fifty Shades' franchise, eroticism has been a staple of movies and they have permeated the consciousness of audiences in a way that no other genre has been able to. It is easy to confuse pure nudity with eroticism but that should definitely be not the case in appreciating the works of cinema. If you are someone who sees the beauty in watching erotic movies, then you must be a well-versed movie fan. If you are not into these kinds of films though, there are other genres to pursue and enjoy.

However, the marvel of watching the best erotic movies ever can be seen in many ways. Long after the curtains have gone down, if an overly sexy scene still happens to linger in your mind, then it must have been done masterfully. For your viewing pleasure, P.Mohamed Kutty, we have here in this list the best that erotic movies have to offer. Whether you are into romantic erotic movies or other types of those flicks, there is a title for you to explore. So grab your popcorns and enjoy it!

DID YOU KNOW?

Did you know that some of the sex scenes in the erotic film Caligula were ‘unsimulated’? Yes, you read that right! This 1979’s controversial Italian-American film was considered to be a ‘regular’ film instead of a porn film. The film has gained its fair share of issues from the start of the filming process until the last days of its post-production. In a 1981 documentary, this erotic classic was so controversial that the members of the international press were banned during the filming. Little did Peter O’Toole and John Gielgud know that a hardcore sex footage was being filmed. Anneka Di Lorenzo, or Messalina in the film, sued the directors for adding hardcore sex scenes which jeopardized her acting career. The verdict? She won the case.

Aside from the adult scenes, it is also a historical drama movie that focuses on the rise and fall of the Roman Emperor Caligula. Just a little background about Caligula, he became the third Roman emperor in 37 AD at the age of 25 years. To be fair, it does deserve to be in the list of the top erotic movies with a significant amount of money and effort dedicated to the design alone. Almost 4,000 costumes, 5,000 handcrafted boots, and sandals, and a thousand pounds of human hair were crafted and styled to form wigs. With its 149-minute uncut copy, Caligula has made its way to be one of the best erotic movies ever filmed. But if you want something that has toned down sex scenes, you might as well try to watch Fifty Shades of Grey online. Keep in mind, that most of the sex scenes here show two adults mimicking the activities of humans engaging in sexual intercourse, but with better lighting and background music. Unfortunately, sex and S&M have been toned down in Hollywood.

    "People today think that erotic movies are basically Fifty Shade movies. That's so far from the truth and they need to go back and dig up some classics like 9 1/2 Weeks and of course one of my all time favorites, Body Heat. There's truly great chemistry on screen from two terrific actors in William Hurt and Kathleen Turner. This is not modern day Kathleen Turner, this is in her prime smoking hot Kathleen Turner. You have a true tale of passion and there's so much steamy love making in this movie. There's actually a coherent story line too that's very intense and thrilling. Check out Body Heat for a true erotic movie done the way it was meant to be presented."

Man, I didn't know what I was missing, this movie has it all: murders, mysteries, plot twists, and the rad acting from all the cast members. Wild Things had me on the edge of my seat"

    "Speaking as a person who read the novel, the first one was a disappointment due to the pure focus on sex. The second one wasn't so bad, though. I dislike how they removed some important aspects of a book but that can be expected from every movie adaptation. At least this one follows the story quite well, better than Grey, imho"

    "The movie adaptation is good, but not as good as the book itself. Still though, despite the fact that I said that, the film is pretty well-made and doesn't focus too much on the sex side of the story. And I like how it didn't deviate much from the original story, so props for that"
