Netflix offers TV shows to binge, documentaries to make you feel smarter, and a few movies with so much sex and romance that they pass as art but are practically soft porn. Netflix has your erotica needs covered. It won't be necessary to go into the private or incognito viewing mode in your web browser, and you don't have to scan those adult cable channels that are way past the number 400.

The best part is that most of these movies were featured at top festivals or received good reviews. So you won't look like a total perv for watching them.

1. Y Tu Mamá También (2001)

Brothers Alfonso and Carlos Cuarón wrote this coming of age movie about two young men who take a road trip with an older woman. Enough said, because that means there are sensual threesomes. This movie was nominated for Best Original Screenplay at the Academy Awards and Best Foreign Language Film at the Golden Globes.

2. On the Road (2010)

The adaptation of Jack Kerouac's 1957 novel premiered at the Cannes and Toronto film festivals. It received mixed reviews, but it stars Amy Adams and Kristen Stewart. Stewart has a few steamy threesomes with two men, which is why you're going to check it out.

3. Sex and Lucia (2001)

Sex and Lucia was an official selection at the Sundance and Toronto Film Festivals, and the late Roger Ebert gave it three stars. It also has exceptional ratings scores on Rotten Tomatoes, so it's actually a solid movie. The film deals with a woman making lots and lots of love as she deals with a breakup. It blurs the lines between fantasy and reality, so it gets points for being artsy and a foreign film.

4. Sleeping Beauty (2011)

This sensual drama follows a young college student (Emily Browning) who works for a secretive high-end escort service, though not as a sex worker herself. A New York Times review said the film is a "dreamy detachment that is seductive and unnerving in equal measure." The movie was not rated, which means sexy fun viewing awaits you.

5. Perfect Sense (2011)

Perfect Sense is a combination of erotic romance and science fiction. It follows Eva Green and Ewan McGregor who grapple with the world following a strange plague that strips people of their five senses. But instead of battling zombies, they decide to enjoy hot sex as they gradually lose their sensory perceptions one by one.

Enjoy watching these "artsy" movies while they're still on Netflix. Watch them alone, with a partner, or if you've learned anything from many of these movies, two partners (wink wink).
