Sexy Movies on HBO Max Right Now
1. Beach Rats (2017)
Eliza Hittman’s Sundance Award-winning sophomore feature is a piercing, haunting character study of an aimless Brooklyn teen struggling with his sexual identity as his father falls ill. Sculpted, soft-featured ginger-haired star Harris Dickinson (Maleficent: Mistress of Evil) is a breathtaking beauty–and a powerhouse performer to boot (you’ll be shocked to discover he’s British once you hear his New York accent). Beach Rats has an abundance of candid nudity; Hittman’s camera makes the most of Dickinson’s astonishing physique.
2. Magic Mike (2012)
Steven Soderbergh‘s comedic drama follows a hunky and naive 19-year-old (Alex Pettyfer) who enters the world of male stripping under the guidance of a seasoned pro (Channing Tatum). Magic Mike was a surprise summer smash—and a critical hit, too. This is the film that made Tatum one of the most sought-after stars in the world.
3. Magic Mike XXL (2015)
The sequel is about as beefy and well-oiled as its predecessor. Three years after retiring, Mike joins his boys for a stripper convention in Myrtle Beach. XXL adds a game Jada Pinkett Smith and, like its predecessor, was a critical and commercial hit.
4. And God Created Woman (1956)
Roger Vadim's erotic drama about a sexually liberated orphan wasn't the first film to star Brigitte Bardot, but it's the one that made her a household name of the time, a defining "sex kitten." Without explicit nudity (verboten at the time), And God Created Woman was so controversial enough in its day that law enforcement crashed some stateside screenings. Despite middling reviews, the forbidden fruit was a box-office smash.
5. Gia (1998)
HBO’s acclaimed biopic stars Angelina Jolie as American supermodel Gia Carangi, who became addicted to heroin, and died tragically at the age of 26. Gia costars Faye Dunaway, and Mila Kunis appears, playing Carangi at age 11.
6. Behind the Candelabra (2013)
Soderbergh's glossy-yet-gritty, deliciously soapy biopic of Liberace (Michael Douglas) and lover Scott Thurston (Matt Damon) was a huge win for HBO, winning 11 Emmys and two Golden Globes, on top of widespread critical acclaim. It premiered at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival, where it competed for the Palme d'Or.

7. Tie Me Up! Tie Me Down! (1989)
Pedro Almodóvar's uncanny blend of romantic comedy and horror movie was so controversial in its day that it went to court. Miramax sued the MPAA for slapping Tie Me Up! with an X rating (generally reserved for porn). Tie Me Up! was released unrated and still grossed a considerable sum for a foreign film, and one year later the NC-17 rating debuted.
8. Looking: The Movie (2016)
Andrew Haigh's subtle, insightful look at three gay BFFs in the Bay Area was just on the cusp of greatness when it was canceled after two seasons. HBO at least greenlit a two-hour special event to tie up loose ends—too neatly, in fact. Looking still has a dedicated fanbase; maybe one day down the line we'll get an HBO Max revival. Such a thing seems more possible than ever in light of the Sex and the City revival series.
9. Basic Instinct 2: Risk Addiction (2006)
Sharon Stone and Michael Douglas starred in Paul Verhoeven's iconic 1992 chiller about a dupe who falls for a murderous bombshell. The original was a massive box-office hit that made Stone a household name and grossed over $352 million (nearly $700 million today). The long-delayed sequel ups the sleaze, downs the already-low IQ, but it's a nudity-filled thimble-brained, violent good time if you're in the right mood.
10-11. Sex & the City: The Movie and Sex & the City 2 (2008-2010)
Pre-game for a rewatch of And Just Like That... with the highly lucrative big-screen adventures of NYC's fab four. Both films were mammoth box-office hits, even though the second received harsh reviews from critics.
