We watch movies for a lot of different reasons. Sometimes, we desperately need a laugh because the real world has just gotten too real. Sometimes, all we want is a good, cathartic cry and we look for the saddest, most dramatically gut-wrenching story available to summon the tears. And other times, we just want to see sexy people being sexy onscreen and we look for steamy, sultry, or otherwise blush-inducing movies to get the blood flowing to, well, the areas that drove us to seek out the sexiness in the first place.
Sure, most of us have some go-to sexy movies that we know always hit the spot and there are plenty of classic, so-sexy-they're-practically-porn movies that we can turn to thanks to the glory of the streaming gods, but sometimes you're just yearning for something new. That's where this list comes in. We've done the research so you don't have to and compiled a very
handsy erm, handy list of some of the sexiest new movies making their debut to the world in 2021. From intimate explorations of love and relationships to movies full of vengefully sexy mind games, here are the sexiest stories you need make sure to watch this year.
