12 Sexy LBGTQ+ Movies That Are Next-Level Hot

Is it hot in here? Nope, it's just these movies.

We as people like sexy things, (opens in new tab) and there shouldn't be any shame in that. Sometimes opening up a new window and mentally checking out as you watch a bunch of hot people parade across your screen isn't exactly what the doctor ordered, but should've, okay?! And if you're worried you're be the only person who's into them, might I introduce you to the "steamy romance" category on Netflix (opens in new tab), which is another fancy way of saying: enough people watch films that have great sex scenes (opens in new tab) but aren't straight-up porn, Netflix went ahead and made a whole damn category for it.

But if there's anything that is shameful, it's that only in the last couple of years did the world get around to producing more of these kinds of movies with LGBTQ+ couples (opens in new tab). Shocker alert: they're also very, very good. Gone are the days of searching the web seeking a film that A) didn't look like it was filmed on a video recorder from the '80s, B) had an interesting plot that didn't seem out of this world bananas, and C) had compelling sex scenes that weren't the product of a teenage boy's fantasy.

So step away from opening up ye' old faithful incognito window and turn towards one of these 12 sexy steamy-to-the-point-your-windows-will-start-fogging movies. All feature LGBTQ+ leads that will satisfy your needs and are available to stream right now. Who said 2020 was all that bad?
