The Graduate

If you’re in the mood for snuggling up with your other half and Netflix and chilling in your pjs, My Dating Adviser has ranked the sexiest movies ever made – and that mainstream cinema has ever gifted the world.  Their study has rated 110 incredibly racy films to watch right now or later, if you need some privacy for this particular streaming .

Their study found the sexiest movie ever made is Boogie Nights (1997), followed by Portrait of a Lady on Fire (2019) and The Handmaiden (2016). Sometimes you want to watch something provocative. And lucky for you, the world has been producing sexy entertainment for even longer than the internet has been in existence.

From Stanley Kubrick’s anonymous sex orgy party, classic Eyes Wide Shut to the very different mainstream accounts of real-life BDSM kink in Fifty Shades of Grey and Secretary to scorching hot LGBTQ+ love stories like Blue is the Warmest Color and Call Me By Your Name. These films epitomize the best kinds of sexy Hollywood has ever been able to muster.

Here are 7 surprising facts about how movies sex scenes get made:
  1. Dance choreographers are often called in to help. It takes a lot of thought to make on-screen hookups seem both spontaneous and graceful — i.e. nothing like messy regular-people sex.

  2. Genitals are covered. While some actors and actresses are perfectly comfortable filming au naturel, on-set costumer Sarah Basta says “there are a few things we always have in our kit: the cock sock, the snatch patch.”

  3. There are body doubles – especially when a sex scene requires hours of shooting.

  4. Boners happen – and don’t happen.

  5. Makeup artists will apply full-body makeup. It’s like a second skin.

  6. Sweat can be applied. “There are different ways we can make [actors] look sweaty,” says makeup artist Rocio Jahanbakhsh. “It depends on if the director wants dripping sweat or if they just want the actors to look sweaty without saturation,” she says.

  7. Pubic hair is often fake. Merkins, the crotch cover of 18th-century prostitutes, never really went out of style in Hollywood, especially now that so many stars wax.

Amy Prtichett, Managing Editor at MyDatingAdviser:

“What makes a movie truly sexy? To start, variety is spice and for some movies, it’s about the animal chemistry between the stars like in Body Heat and Mr. and Mrs. Smith. But also, it’s about the building passion of its characters like in Brokeback Mountain and Titanic.

Some movies like In the Mood for Love and Before Sunrise are known for their ambient erotic charge than for outright graphic sexiness. In other movies like Body Heat and Mulholland Drive, there is an exquisite and tantalizing carnality that everyone imagines a sex scene to have.

Often the nastiest and naughtiest characters are the biggest turn-ons. With other movies, the turn-on is the illicit thrill of being bad like in Unfaithful and the Secretary or the purity of self-awakening and discovery like in Gloria and Moonlight.

Other times it is about the mood that a movie evokes. And yes, sometimes it’s all about the sex scenes like in Lust, Caution, Mulholland Drive, and In the Realm of Senses.”
