List Rules Vote up mainstream, wide release feature films that are most likely to be mistaken for porn at first glance.

List of the best almost porn mainstream movies. These feature films, from famous Manhattan indie circuits to multiplexes in Des Moines, have all reached the masses and overlapped in two qualities: they were great movies and they were borderline pornographic. Here are also the best R-rated erotica movies as well as the sexiest NC-17 rated films. Rerank the movies you see on this list in the order that you think truly epitomizes excellence in near-porno motion pictures.

Famous actors and actresses are sprinkled throughout the casts of these great films. One star who comes to mind is Chloe Sevigny, who performs oral sex on her real-life boyfriend in his movie The Brown Bunny. Fun fact about that sex scene: it was in no way staged or simulated. It's the kind of film that makes you want to double check the marquee outside to see if you're at one of those movie theaters Pee-Wee Herman got arrested in.

Intimacy also deserved its spot on this list of movies that are almost pornographic because many of the sex scenes were real! That's more legit than HBO after hours softcore!

Vote up the films on this list that you thought were the greatest, in addition to being borderline pornographic or vote down the ones you didn't think were all that steamy. We won't tell your mom.
