The term ‘Netflix and Chill’ is an innocent enough invitation to come round and watch a movie or a box set, but these days, we all know that it means much more than that.
But what are the very best films for your next Netflix and Chill session? Of course, everyone’s tastes are different, but we’ve attempted to figure out the best TV shows and movies, based on the following three factors
A score based on the severity of nudity and sexual content, according to IMDb.
A score out of three based on the genre of the film/TV show.
A score out of ten based on user ratings at IMDb.
Netflix and Chill is far from an exact science, but you can read our full methodology below.
Taking the top spot for movies was Judd Apatow’s 2007 rom-com Knocked Up, starring Seth Rogen and Katherine Heigl. While the sex and nudity in the movie are more played for laughs rather than anything too steamy, it’s highly rated by IMDb users and strikes the right balance between raunchy laughs and more sentimental moments.
Other high scoring films include rom-coms such as Friends with Benefits and Going the Distance, as well as racy romances such as Newness and My Days of Mercy.
We generally scored period dramas down when it comes to Netflix and Chill, as they’re hardly known for setting pulses racing, but made the BBC’s 2016 adaption of War & Peace was an exception, with numerous sex scenes being added in by the writers (it was also highly rated by audiences and critics).
Other highly-rated dramas such as Peaky Blinders and Narcos both feature their fair share of risqué scenes, with lots of sitcoms such as It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia also making the top ten.
