If you’re looking for porn on HBO, you can no longer wait to see what airs “after dark.” In fact, on Aug. 27, the company officially pulled the plug on the After Dark section of HBO Go and HBO Now, which means that you can no longer stream such NSFW classics as Real Sex, Taxicab Confessions, and Cathouse. HBO justified its cold shower in a statement: “Over the past several years HBO has been winding down its late-night adult fare. While we’re greatly ramping up our other original program offerings, there hasn’t been a strong demand for this kind of adult programming, perhaps because it’s easily available elsewhere.”
But fear not: From its original series to its rotating list of movies, there’s plenty of steamy content to stream, and thanks to HBO Go and HBO Now, it’s all available on-demand. Here are the sexiest movies on HBO right now.
Porn on HBO? The sexiest movies to watch
Atomic Blonde (2017)
Last year’s surprise hit is the sexy alternative to the overdone world of James Bond movies. Even better, this time the sex happens on screen. Charlize Theron plays Lorraine Broughton, a top MI6 spy sent to Berlin at the end of the Cold War to take down a brutal espionage ring. Teaming up with a local station chief, the duo unleashes hell on their enemies. Agent Broughten is bisexual, a point you’ll see play out on screen and was important to Theron. “It should be normalized by now,” she told ABC.
Behind the Candelabra (2013)
Based on Scott Thorson’s memoirs about his five-year romance with Liberace, Behind the Candelabra is a flashy and at times campy drama about the famous Vegas showman. Starring Matt Damon as Thorson and Michael Douglas as the much older Liberace, Candelabra is a humorous and biting look at a relationship that burned brightly before bitterly fizzling out. Steven Soderbergh’s biopic is an HBO original because, according to the director, major studios turned it down due to its graphic gay sex scenes.
Double Impact (1991)
Double Impact is a ridiculous, over-the-top action film about identical twins separated at birth. Jean-Claude Van Damme plays both brothers. Somehow they both grow up to be martial arts masters and team up to the avenge their parent’s murders. The vast majority of the movie is rib-cracking action and shootouts. But it’s one sex scene is so hot I knew a kid who taped it off the TV when we were in middle school and sold copies.
The Dreamers (2003)
Set in Paris in 1968, amid civil unrest and a social revolution, The Dreamers follows an American exchange student who meets a pair of twins who share his love of cinema. The movie’s incestuous undertones may put off some viewers, but if you’re willing to keep an open mind, you’ll discover why it has fans. HBO is showing the edited version of the movie, with three minutes cut out, but the movie is still incredibly graphic.
Friday the 13th (2009)
Yes, Friday the 13th is an ultra-violent gore fest full of ax murders, but that doesn’t mean it can’t have moments of sensuality. This reboot of the series finds Jason hunting down kids at their parent’s lake house, but before he can start killing, the teens have to break the rules—and you know what that means.
This HBO made-for-TV biopic features a star-making performance from Angelina Jolie as ’70s supermodel Gia Carangi. Carangi was a high school dropout who became one of the biggest models in America before drug addiction and mental health issues took her out in the prime of her life.
Sex comedies have been an important part of the late night cable ecosystem since HBO launched. Eurotrip is an unassuming entry about teens on a trip, but this raunchy treat serves up a surprisingly heartwarming comedy full of over the top nudity. If the sex doesn’t sell you Matt Damon’s musical number will.
This 2003 serial killer flick threw audiences for a spin when America’s sweetheart Meg Ryan appeared in a number of graphic sex scenes. Chock full of surprising nudity, including Mark Ruffalo giving a full showing, and murder scenes In The Cut is an erotic thriller that shocks and titillates in equal measures.
Maintaining sensuality in the face of building tension is an art form, one Andres Baiz masters in his brilliant thriller La Cara Oculta. One day Adrián is sent a video message from his girlfriend Belén, claiming she’s leaving him. When she ends up completely disappearing, he becomes the main suspect in her disappearance. What Adrián and the police don’t know is she’s still hidden in his apartment, trapped in a hidden panic room only she knows about. Beautifully shot, and almost unbearably tense, La Cara Oculta is a Columbian thriller well worth your discovery.
This obscure 90s erotic thriller is a classic late night treat, a low stakes b-grade mix of murder and sex with just enough twists to take over an afternoon. When a patient begins to confess sadomasochistic sexual fantasies during his sessions a Manhattan psychiatrist crosses her ethical boundaries by starting an affair with the man. When a patient turns up dead, all signs point to her new lover. Is he a lady killer in and out of the bedroom? You’ll have to watch to find out.
