18 dirty movies on netflix for couples to watch on date night
Netflix isn’t just for marathoning New York-set comic book adaptations and cherry-picking the most comforting episodes of your favorite sitcoms. The streaming service also has a nice cache of romantic movies that drift towards the sensual. So when you’re spending an evening in with your significant other, there’s no need to look to outlets that specialize in saucy viewings.with just their regular monthly membership fee (and now with Netflix Party, couples can watch together while physically apart). But since some of these movies are foreign-made, independent, or otherwise off-the-beaten path, you may not come across them while casually browsing.
You may have seen a few of these movies already. Some were major theatrical releases; others are critically acclaimed. But I hope you’ll find some hidden treasure in this list of psychological dramas, hotter-than-average romantic comedies, and pleasantly silly erotic thrillers. With these movies, you and your partner can lose yourself in another romance for a while, experience something new together, and ideally be inspired to get creative and stay connected. You could watch these 26 Netflix movies alone, but wouldn’t it be more fun if you had some company?
