10 Best Sex Movies of 2020
The year? 2020. The state of the world? Perilous.
And yet, here we are, reading an internet post about the sexiest movies of 2020. To that I say, good for you. No—good for us. Long gone are the days that we apologize for searching out what the sexiest movies of a given year are because 2020 is the year of clear vision, and it’s time someone said it without shame. We know you people search it. That’s fine! Sex is good. Being sexy is good. Watching sexy things is good, so let’s treat this list like a safe space where good people looking for sexy movies can congregate.
In this sex club, we’ll meet to list out the sexiest movies of the year. Movies featuring sexy ladies? They’re in. Sexy dudes? They’re in, too. Someone does something sexy-adjacent, but it strikes you in a way that only Freud would understand? We’ll consider it. And yes, it’s the beginning of the year, so we don’t have a lot to go off of, but we have a lot to look forward to. Trailers for Wonder Woman and Top Gun: Maverick are out and it’s already getting pretty warm in here. So scroll through the list of what’s to come, and then, think of all the things we don’t even know about yet. It’s going to be a hornt up year, dammit. Welcome to the club.
Underwater (Jan. 10)
The first of the canon! Underwater features a whole bunch of sexy sea explorers who happen to be trapped in the ocean with an insane sea monster. Naturally, as things escalate, they lose some clothes, and I guess there’s something kind of sexy about fear?
The Gentlemen (Jan. 24)
Guy Ritchie’s upcoming gangster movie about a weed empire in London may not strike you as a romp fest, but sometimes the sexiness is all in the view. With a cast featuring Matthew McConaughey, Charlie Hunnam, Henry Golding, Colin Farrell, and Michelle Dockery, it’s hard to imagine there’s not going to be a touch of sexual tension in there.
Birds of Prey (Feb. 7)
Again, we’re not casting judgment, but there’s a very particular kind of person who is attracted to Harley Quinn. If that’s your jam, she’s getting her own movie with a whole cast of femme fatales backing her. And yeah, they’re here to kick ass.
The Photograph (Feb. 14)
If Sonic isn’t your speed for a romantic holiday film, then a) how dare you? and b) here’s a second option. In a sexy, sexy movie about romance and, um, death, Issa Rae and LaKeith Stanfield star in this drama where a woman and journalist presumably fall in love while piecing together the past of her photographer mother.
No Time to Die (Apr. 8)
No matter how you identify, James Bond is aspirational. If you don’t want to look like him, you want to be with him. Pair that with the likes of Naomie Harris, Lashanna Lynch, and Rami Malek, and you have one of the best looking casts of the year. And sorry… spy movies are always going to be sexy. It’s just in their nature.
Black Widow (Apr. 24)
Finally. Black Widow is getting her own standalone movie, and even though there’s a ton of action, this origin story is also full of very attractive people. Outside of Scarlett Johansson finding her own as a spy-turned-hero, we’re also getting an intro to FLorence Pugh and a very ripped David Harbour.
Wonder Woman 1984 (Jun. 5)
Five words here: Gal Gadot and Chris Pine.
In The Heights (Jun. 26)
Listen, if you’ve ever been in New York City in the summer, it gets so hot trapped in all that concrete that no one is wearing clothes. Lin Manuel Miranda’s musical is getting the big screen adaptation this summer, and a touch of a love story will take those hot summer temperatures and turn up the heat a hair.
Top Gun: Maverick (Jun. 26)
Thirty-one years after the original, Tom Cruise is back in the pilot seat for a Top Gun sequel. Joining him is Val Kilmer, Jon Hamm, Jennifer Connelly, and Miles Teller. If they even veer toward a new beach volleyball scene, then this movie will enter the Sexy Movie Canon.
Morbius (Jul. 31)
Good for Jared Leto getting his own Marvel film in the Spider-Man/Venom universe. Come for the superhero action, stay for the strange origin story of Jared Leto turning into a sexy vampire antihero.
