9 Songs

9 Songs

Watch Trailer of 9 Songs

This movie by Michael Winterbottom’s focuses entirely on sexual chemistry and romance. The story talks about a British scientist- Matt played by Kieran O’Brien and an American named Lisa played by Margo Stilley.

There are nine sex scenes which are shown throughout the film. In an unconventional manner, the director and writers have dealt with the problems which arise in a relationship which is limited to sex.

The movie is a very new take on two conflicted characters who are seemingly lost in a world which seems to be running out of love. 



It is often said that heart has its reasons (Pascal). When you have no other explanation to give- you can rely on this phrase just like Connie Sumner does in the movie Unfaithful, when she decides to swerve from her perfect marriage in search of something exciting.

Not delving into unnecessary explanations, this movie simply offers us a chance to understand human behavior. Connie (Diane Lane) and her husband Edward (Richard Gere) live a seemingly happy married life with their 9 year old son Charlie.

The two seem to be happy together until Connie meets a rare book dealer by the name of Paul Martel (Olivier Martinez) who offers a life full of sexual adventures and racy romance. 



Quills has an amazing star cast of Geoffrey Rush, Joaquin Phoenix and Kate Winslet- all of whom have done a wonderful job at portraying the characters assigned to them.

The movie is based on Marquis de Sade, the man on whom the word sadism is founded. The man is rather reprehensible, despite having an undeniably strong spirit and reckless tenacity.

There is not a lot of sexual content in the movie, and only hints of romance between the Abbe played by Phoenix and the maid Madeleine (Kate Winslet).

For someone who is looking only for romance, this movie might not be the best pick. However, if you’re interested in the man who first started the entire sadomasochistic movement reflected in 50 Shades as well, then you can grab a seat to watch this movie.


Movies that explore sex and sexuality are fairly common in these days. As a matter of fact, Netflix has become a great place for people to look for such movies which satisfy their taste for romance and a little more.

Ever since Fifty Shades of Grey was released, movie watchers have been looking for more reels that have been able to take the concept of love and romance a step further.

The 16 movies given above are some of the best combinations of sexual nuances with well thought-out storylines. These movies explore love affairs, sexuality, new romance, BDSM and many more things which make them some of the most popular mature romances.
