14 (very) sexy movies for women who just don’t like porn.

We’re not saying you need any help in the bedroom department. Far from it. Two grown, red-blooded humans such as yourselves certainly enjoy having sex as often as the rest of us. Far be it for us to suggest ways to improve your sex life.

Or the frequency.

Or the location.

Or the props you choose to use during it.

Certainly after a long day at work, at the end of a busy week and having eating a little too much dinner, some sweet, sweet, naked lovin’ is exactly what you feel like.

For those times when you need a little extra motivation to share some special time together (knowing how ridiculous most pornography is) here are 17 movies and TV shows that will get you in the mood.
