From comedy to sci-fi, action to drama, Westerns to comics, there are all kinds of Netflix shows and movies available for every taste. In the past few years, romance has become a top genre on the streamer, with some of the steamiest and downright sexiest titles to fill a watch list.

Most recently, the streamer has found success with the Spanish romance movies Though My Window, as well as the Brazilian drama film Burning Betrayal. Both of these titles burned up our watch lists in 2023, along with the fan-favorite and acclaimed titles Fair Play and No Hard Feelings. Whether you're looking for laughs or thrills and chills to go with the sexiness, there's a little something extra in each of these titles, especially romance.

Speaking of romance, back in 2020, Netflix fans fell head over heels for the risqué love story of Daphne Bridgerton and the Duke in the impossibly popular period romantic drama Bridgerton. The second season arrived in 2022 and centered on the love story between Anthony and Kate, and with the two-part third season coming in 2024, Colin and Penelope are up next.

Beyond Bridgerton's steamy scenes, the world’s jaw collectively dropped thanks to the guilty pleasure erotic thriller 365 Days and its subsequent sequels. What's more, we all remember that viral moment when Sex/Life left very little to the imagination, and the After movies surely spiced things up for the young adult crowd. If you’re looking for more titles like these to heat up your watch list, there’s plenty more where the hits came from.

What are the sexiest Netflix shows and movies? Let’s highlight some of the hottest titles that get a little NSFW, beginning below with the movie Burning Betrayal.

Burning Betrayal

In October 2023, Netflix released the steamy thriller film Burning Betrayal, which is based on the novel O Lado Bom de Ser Traída by Sue Hecker. Netflix has described the Brazilian movie as a combination of Fifty Shades of Grey meets Sex/Life, and that's perhaps an excellent comparison for fans of those titles who might be interested in checking out the Netflix movie.

Giovanna Lancellotti stars in the movie as an accountant named Babi, who decides to completely transform her life when she finds out that her fiancé has been cheating on her. She begins having an affair with the "hot judge" Marco (played by Leandro Lima) and, on the back of her former lover's betrayal, begins something of a sexual awakening for Babi. But it could come with a cost.

It's no surprise that the movie was a hit with its intriguing plot and eye candy onscreen. The only thing that probably disappointed viewers was that Burning Betrayal isn't a series. There aren't multiple episodes of the story to unfold over a binge-watching weekend. For something similar to the movie with a full season for your watch list, check out the Colombian drama series Fake Profile, too.
