“I’m only happy when I’m with a guy…”
Translated as ‘To Our Loves’, this French film revolves around a fifteen-year-old girl who has casual sex to escape her dysfunctional family and her deteriorating home life.
Her casual encounter with an American drives away her boyfriend and she subsequently starts bouncing from guy to guy, seeking happiness without love.
Promiscuity is her refuge from a family that doesn’t understand her at all. It’s her way of coping with things while having fun.
“A woman like you can chase the vision to concentrate only at my body for how long…”
This French movie is a sexual thriller mixed with a look at how men deal with female sexuality.
It follows a suicidal woman as she hires a homosexual man to observe her naked body during her most intimate moments for four days in her isolated home.
By the end of the four days, they’ve grown close and have had a profound impact on one another. The movie tries to say a lot about the attraction between sexes through interesting dialogue, good acting, and lovely cinematography.
“Yes, I’m drunk. And you’re beautiful…”
This movie tells the story of an American student in Paris who meets a brother and sister with a mutual love of cinema. When the siblings’ parents are away, they invite Matthew over and become entangled in an erotic conflict.
They drag him into an orgy of indulgence, exploring their sexual freedom, and they all end up losing the last of their innocence.
It’s set against the background of the ’68 Paris student riots and is an interesting take on youth creating a dream world to explore new ideals.
“You’ve had breasts since primary school…”
This coming-of-age drama captures the uncertainty of teenage sexuality and teen culture while exploring female friendship, love and manipulation.
It’s closely observed and provocative as we follow three fifteen-year-old girls living in a modern Paris suburb, discovering the dynamics of their relationships.
‘Water Lilies’ takes an intimate look into the world of synchronised swimming and shows quite a few rendezvous scenes in the locker room.
“Beauty of mine, sit before me. Let me peruse you and remember you… always like this…”
Marlon Brando features in ‘Last Tango in Paris’ as a widower trying to recover from his wife’s sudden suicide. He finds solace in a beautiful but equally distraught French woman.
This artsy French classic film is a great emotional experience but also contains a lot of raunchy sex scenes. Sex is almost the primary form of exchange between the two main characters and it helps them find what they both need.
“Can I ask you a question? Are you shaved?”
A desperate wife hires a prostitute to seduce her husband after she suspects him of cheating. Her aim is to get the prostitute to report back to her and find out if her husband takes the bait.
The movie is full of sensuous moments and we watch as the women’s relationship evolves from business to personal. It touches on issues of jealousy, mistrust and betrayal.
“He loves her, he marries another…”
This beautifully filmed erotic French period drama was a nominee at the 2007 Cannes Film Festival.
It’s set in the 1800s and follows the story of a feisty mistress who doesn’t want to let her man go for a wealthier and more marriageable woman after a decade-long relationship.
This provocative romance causes drama throughout the whole film, creating tension and a sense of excitement and suspense. There are some pretty graphic sex scenes coupled with great historic detail, which makes this movie very interesting.
While most of the erotic movies in this list of films like ‘Q Desire’ are completely fictional, the next recommendation blends real life and fictional storytelling to examine feelings between women and sexual pleasure.
“Enjoying my secret little pleasures…”
Partially based on a true story, this semiautobiographical film is based on things that happened to Director Jean-Claude Brisseau – he was arrested for harassment, fined, and then given a suspended prison sentence because he made three women perform sexual acts in front of him during auditions.
That’s what the film is based on – a film project about female eroticism. Brisseau meets three aspiring actresses who struggle to perform sexually in front of him due to their own personal issues.
It’s an explicit and shocking film but has often been described as silly because of its humourous, ludicrous, and surreal narrative.
