Does Amazon Prime have porn? Well, the answer is an obvious no. While there are certainly many R-rated and even NC-17 rated movies on Amazon Prime, you won’t find films that are classified as porn, because frankly, the MPAA hasn’t created a category for a film to be labeled as one. But yes, Amazon does have several great adult movies. The question isn’t what adult movies are? As the filmmakers are making a welcome choice of picking bold subject matters, and the use of graphics and verbal violence is increasing in the films, it has become necessary to keep some stuff out of the reach of children. Here’s the list of top adult movies on Amazon Prime. Be warned that several of the films on the list consist of graphic nudity, which may not be suitable for all.
Imbued with the soap-operatic sensationalism of a typical Korean drama, ‘The Taste of Money’ is an erotic thriller about a wealthy family and their moral bankruptcy, which leads them to eventual ruination. The matriarch, Baek Geum-ok (Youn Yuh-jung), is ruthless and vindictive. After discovering that her husband, Chairman Yoon (Baek Yoon-sik), is involved in an affair with their Filipina maid, Eva, she starts having sex with Yoon’s private secretary Joo Young-jak (Kim Kang-woo). The police apprehend their son Yoon Chul (On Joo-wan) for aiding an American commit financial fraud.
The business originally belonged to Geum-ok’s father. Yoon only married Geum-ok to further his own ambitions. The most prevalent theme in the movie is the moral degradation caused by wealth. After Yoon’s and Eva’s affair becomes known to the public, the family’s reputation is completely shattered. An enraged Geum-ok lashes out against the only person she can discard easily, Eva.
In ‘Adore’ (known as ‘Adoration’ in Australia), director Anne Fontaine explores dangerously risqué themes in a story about forbidden love. Based on the short story ‘The Grandmothers,’ the movie follows Lil (Naomi Watts) and Roz (Robin Wright), two longtime friends, who begin affairs with each other’s sons, Ian (Xavier Samuel) and Tom (James Frecheville). Years pass, and the boys ultimately move out of their homes, but the connections they have built with their respective lovers remain intact and eventually draw them back.
The film’s softcore plot has been criticized as “trashy” by many reviewers, but the remarkable performances that Watts and Wright deliver add a level of relatability to the storyline. ‘Adore’ suffers for its uneven pace, clunky dialogues, and general directionlessness, but it is still a gorgeous film, and not just because of the beautiful people who star in it.
Directed by first-time filmmaker Eva Husson, ‘Bang Gang’ is an erotic drama about the limitless curiosity of adolescence. The film’s camera captures its young main characters’ insatiable desire to know the unknown as they indulge in virtually everything about which they have been warned—from unprotected sex to substance abuse to filming and posting videos without explicit consent from others.
‘Bang Gang’ begins with Biarritz-native Alex (Finnegan Oldfield) suddenly finding himself alone at his home when his mother travels outside France for work. This abrupt freedom allows him to host wild parties at his home without any inhibition. Ultimately, consequences come knocking at his door when someone catches a sexually transmitted disease, someone else gets pregnant, and videos from his parties begin circulating on the internet.
No other Hollywood mainstream film since ‘Basic Instinct’ took as much liberty in portraying sex as John McNaughton’s ‘Wild Things.’ It has several memorable steamy sequences, including a threesome between Sam (Matt Dillon), Suzie (Nave Campbell), and Kelly (Denise Richards), and a nude Kevin Bacon stepping out of the shower. While the film is almost over-indulgent with its depiction of sex, its impeccable and suspenseful script makes it an unforgettable neo-noir crime thriller. There are so many twists and turns in the story that it keeps its audience perpetually at the edge of their seats.
The plot revolves around Kelly and Suzie, two young girls from vastly different financial backgrounds. Although they accuse Sam, their school’s guidance counselor, of rape, they claim during the trial that they were lying earlier because they wanted to make him suffer. Suzie hated him because he didn’t get her out of jail one time, and Kelly disliked him because he was involved in an affair with her mother. After Sam receives $8.5 million in settlement money from Kelly’s family, it is revealed that the three of them had planned the entire thing. Bacon’s Ray Duquette is a police officer who begins suspecting possible collusion.
Despite being an author of a considerable amount of non-fiction literature, D. H. Lawrence offered possibly the best arguments for his views on class, society, sexuality, and feminism in his 1928 (private) controversial novel ‘Lady Chatterley’s Lover.’ Over the years, it has been adapted for the big screen multiple times. In this French adaptation by Just Jaeckin, Dutch actress Sylvia Kristel portrays Lady Constance Chatterley, an upper-class English woman whose husband returns from the war paralyzed from the waist down.
Dealing with growing sexual and emotional frustration, Constance turns to their estate’s gamekeeper, Oliver Mellors (Nicholas Clay), for comfort. Jaeckin approaches Lawrence’s prose’s sensualness in an unhurried manner, using the idyllic setting of the English countryside to juxtapose Constance’s conflicting emotions. The film was not commercially successful immediately after its release, but the producers made their money back through home video sales.
A man works at a video store where he watches a woman who is a regular customer. Fixated on her, the man decides to woo her, but the woman doesn’t respond to his attempts. He decides to take more intense measures to gain her attention, to which he succeeds after a while, and an affair begins between the two of them. However, the affair is short-lived because the woman seems haunted by something terrible that happened to her in her past.
Fashion is one of the most cut-throat industries. It is all about looks and beauty and youth. This becomes the subject matter for ‘The Neon Demon.’ The film starts with Jesse, a 16-year-old girl who dreams of becoming a successful model. When she moves to Los Angeles, her spirits are lifted by her agent, who tells her that she is perfect for modeling. Despite her confidence, she feels intimidated by other models who are jealous of her fresh face. Soon, Jesse learns to survive in the industry and becomes successful. But she has to pay the cost of success with her innocence.

Set in Victorian London, this film tells the story of Constance. She falls in love with Dr. Joseph Barton, and after some time, they get married. Their relationship grows more passionate with time, and Constance meets a sexual awakening in her married life. But, their pleasures come to an end when Constance gives birth to their daughter, Angelica. The mother and daughter had almost died in childbirth. Due to these complications, the doctors advised the couple to abstain. While it seems easy to do so in the beginning, as time passes, the husband and wife find themselves frustrated. To add to their problems, there is a malevolent presence in their house.
40-year-old Michelle Mulan is rather frustrated with her life because she does not get any sexual satisfaction from her boyfriend. Her life completely turns around when Michelle meets a man called Ryan Black in a restaurant. Though much younger than her, Ryan manages to entice Michelle into a world of pleasure she has been craving. He introduces her to BDSM, and this completely changes Michelle’s perspective on sex. However, after a few days go by, she slowly comes to realize that Ryan is a predator and that there are many dark secrets in his life which he is hiding from her. ‘Bound’ has ample skin show, and despite having a rather predictable plot, it never fails to entertain.
Stella Petersen was an English teacher at a school in a small town. Her tragic, untimely death shakes everyone to the core. As the school observes a minute’s silence for their teacher, one student, in particular, looks back at his time with the teacher. For Christian, Stella hadn’t just been a teacher. During the summer, they had been involved with each other. The age difference is considerably low between them, and they had found common grounds that attracted them to each other. But the romantic summer that they spent together came to an end with Stella’s death.
A 1980s sexploitation film, ‘Stripped To Kill’ is something you can enjoy while watching, but there is not much in this film you can take back. The central character of this film is a policewoman called Cody, who works undercover at Los Angeles’ Skid Row. She and her partner Heineman witness a stripper, Angel, being murdered, and to look into the matter more precisely, Cody herself takes a job at a strip club.
The two of them start investigating, and their prime suspect becomes another stripper called Roxanne, who had a romantic affiliation with Angel. Matters get complicated further when Heineman and Cody end up sleeping together and later fight. However, their investigations lead them to a shocking truth, which changes their perspective about the murder in question. Yes, the film is sleazy in certain parts, and there is hardly any artistic merit to it. But you simply cannot deny its entertainment quotient.
Meira lives in Montreal with her husband and her daughter. Her society is Orthodox Jewish, which places a lot of constraints and expectations on her. Meira is already dissatisfied with her married life and doesn’t want to have more children, considering that women in her community have a bunch of children. Her husband rebukes her for not having an understanding of the rules set for the community. After all this frustration that she receives from her husband, it becomes quite obvious why she finds herself attracted to another man. Felix had been mourning the death of his father when he met Meira. Seeing that he wasn’t someone who was married and had children, she realized that he didn’t submit to the standards of society. Soon, they begin an affair.
This film is based on a collection of short stories called ‘Natasha and Other Stories’ written by David Bezmozgis, who also directed the film. It shows the struggle of Mark Berman in trying to stay away from Natasha. Mark is an ideal boy, focused on his work, and always shied away from taking any significant responsibilities. His uncle marries a woman from Moscow, who arrives with her 14-year-old daughter. Mark’s parents, to change his slacking behavior, make him take care of her, considering that she is new in town and doesn’t know anyone. As Mark spends more time with Natasha, he comes to know about her past that just seems too scandalous for a teenager. Even though Mark is hesitant at first, a romance soon develops between the two of them.
‘The Virgin Suicides’ is the first feature film helmed by director Sofia Coppola, and with this film itself, she managed to seal her position as a tour de force in Hollywood. The film begins with a group of boys who have grown up together, who are now men, discussing their childhood. The film then shifts to the past, and we see that the center of interest for these boys are the five Lisbon daughters, who are their neighbors.
The girls live under the watchful eyes of their parents, and thus, it becomes rather difficult to even approach them. Coppola brilliantly captures the voyeuristic tendencies of teenage boys who try to get close to these girls. One of the sisters shockingly kills herself, and this incident further creates a distance between the Lisbons and the entire neighborhood. As the story moves forward, we realize that each of these girls’ lives is shrouded in tragedy. The film brilliantly captures the eerie nature of the story and communicates a lot without using much dialogue.
