Sometimes you're in the mood to watch rom-coms, dramas, or horrors. Other times, you're just "in the mood." If you trust Hulu to fulfill all your other genre cravings, why not allow it to take full care of your wild desires, too? Among your Fargo's and your Interstellar's lie a bunch of pretty sexy movies — you just need to know where to look.

We're here to assist in whichever way we can — to a certain extent — so here's a list of the 13 steamiest, raunchiest, kinkiest, sexiest movies on #Hulu. Enjoy!

13. 'Cruel Intentions' (1999) (New In January)

How are things Down Under? Blossoming I hope!

If naughty nostalgia is your bag, look no further — Cruel Intentions is the ultimate in thrill-filled throwbacks, featuring a sensuous snog between Sarah Michelle Gellar and Selma Blair, Ryan Phillippe's bare ass and some serious sex-schooling. Unlike so many movies, this treat boasts sexy content, a great narrative — circulating around two manipulative and super wealthy siblings, seduction and betrayl — and lines you'll be quoting for years to come.

12. 'The Piano' (1993) (New In January)

If you thought a movie about a mute mail-order bride (Holly Hunter) devastated over losing her piano couldn't be sexy, think again: when the mute woman tries to win her prized instrument back, she's forced to pay, key by key, in the form of sexual favors. What begins with a innocent skirt lift soon turns into some of the most sexually-charged scenes cinema has ever seen.

The Piano also happened to be a huge critical success, winning 3 of its 8 Oscar nominations and bagging the Palme d'Or at the Cannes Film Festival — so that's an incentive to watch it too, I suppose.

11. 'Indecent Proposal' (1993)

Would you sign a contract permitting your partner to cheat on you with a handsome billionaire for a $1 million return?

This question makes up the plot of Indecent Proposal — a drama that sees childhood sweethearts David (Woody Harrelson) and Diana (Demi Moore) torn apart with jealousy after Diana spends a night with John Gage (Robert Redford) to bank the big bucks. By that description, you'd probably figured that this movie's storyline is pretty insulting, which it is, but the sex scenes are so saucy you're tempted to forget that.

10. 'Blue Is The Warmest Color' (2013)

Mix French passion with a bit of girl-on-girl action and you've got yourself a jackpot. This movie revolves around a young woman discovering her sexuality, and the path she takes in order to figure it out. This movie is great for the LGBT community, but not exclusively, as anyone with a taste for cinema will fall in love with its explicit beauty and heart-wrenching narrative.

9. 'Weekend' (2011)

A good counterpart to the previous movie option, Weekend should please a majority of our gay men out there, along with any other open-minded individuals. This British drama will warm your heart with its romance, and warm somewhere else with its steamy sex scenes. The two male protagonists only have a weekend together, so naturally, they must try to make the most of every second. Spoiler alert: They do.

8. 'Room In Rome' (2010)

At times, it feels as though you've finally figured out life. You're on the right track and everything is dandy, until you meet someone who puts it all into perspective. All of a sudden, somehow, your world changes in the blink of an eye. This is true for at least one of the main characters of this English-language Spanish comedy-drama. The plot is very similar to that of Weekend, except these ladies merely have one night together in Rome, limiting their sightseeing to the confines of a hotel room.

7. 'Y Tu Mama También' (2001)

Fulfilling ultimate hashtag-road-trip-goals for adolescents everywhere, Alfonso Cuarón's Mexican drama is a masterclass in sexual tension, giving us an insight into the erotic awakening of two teenage boys as they romp into the distance with an unhappily married woman. This movie is as intelligent as is it hilarious, and should be slammed to the top of your "To Watch" list this instant.

6. 'In The Realm Of The Senses' A.K.A 'Ai No Korîda' (1976)

This French-Japanese art film is as real as it gets, seeing as the actors engaged in an un-simulated sex scene (i.e. the real deal, no Hollywood work-around). The plot revolves around a former prostitute who changes careers and works as a hotel maid in Tokyo in 1936. She indulges in sexual experiments with the hotel owner while discovering what truly gets her going. Unfortunately for him, her desires prove to be a danger that he just can't endure.

5. 'The Pillow Book' (1996)

The Pillow Book refers to an ancient Japanese diary of a 10th century lady-in-waiting. Nagiko, a Japanese model living in Hong Kong, is searching for a sexually-compatible partner who can relate to her passion for poetic calligraphy all while meeting her sexual desires. As a child, her aunt would read her The Pillow Book and her father would paint characters on her face. As an adult, this translates into the creation of her own Pillow Book, which she paints on her body.

4. I Am Curious (Yellow) (1967)

This Swedish classic was originally meant to be a 3 1/2-hour-long movie, which is why it was divided into two parts, the second one being I Am Curious (Blue) (1968), also available on Hulu. Together, the two colors refer to those featured on the Swedish flag. This movie is so explicit that it was banned in the US for some time — meaning it must be good, right? It revolves around Lena, a 20-year-old with an insatiable curiosity who collects files on everyone she's had sexual encounters with. Lena delves into political activism, meditations, and, well lots of sex.

3. 'Belle De Jour' (1967)

This French erotic drama features a young housewife, played by legendary sex icon Catherine Deneuve, who spends her afternoons as a prostitute in a brothel. Based on the 1928 novel by Joseph Kessel, this classic doesn't hold back — expect to find lots of domination, sadomasochism, and bondage. Deneuve's character is incapable of sharing her most intimate carnal desires with her unsuspecting husband. Naturally, she finds another outlet instead: fulfilling her clients' raunchiest fantasies.

2. 'Spring Breakers' (2012)

This R-rated movie has an A-list cast, with actresses we're used to seeing in teen shows or Disney movies, ditching the darling vibe and venturing to the dark side. In a nutshell: Vanessa Hudgens, Selena Gomez, Ashley Benson and Rachel Korine hold up a restaurant to fund their spring break, party hard and get arrested — and the fun doesn't stop there (hint: there's a threesome in a pool). This film prioritized a sensory experience over the quality of action, plot or narrative.

1. 'Basic Instinct 2' (2006)

Sharon Stone's character has once again found herself in trouble with the law, which means she must receive a psych evaluation; needless to say, her psychiatrist is in for a wild ride. Basic Instinct 2 isn't the best in terms of cinematographic quality and intrigue with a 7% rating on Rotten Tomatoes — so don't expect an Oscar-worthy experience. Many attribute their disappointment to the sequel not living up to the original. However, if you're looking for heated scenes, you'll find lots of that here.
