The Internet really killed the need for NC-17 movies to exist at all. If you get an NC-17 rating these days you're pretty much just going to be one of the great Netflix movies. Remember when Netflix first came out and you could shame your roommates for watching Netflix movies with nudity clearly ONLY because of the sexy movie posters they had. The proof was in the queue and in the "Recently Watched" section. Same with nudity on Hulu because of the "shows you watch" or recommendations on there. Recommendation engines really made it obvious to everyone who was looking for nudity on TV. The weird part, though, is that if you're looking for naked people or sex on Hulu, you're clearly attached to the Internet, so maybe just stick to that, right? Anyway, these NC-17 erotic sex movies are on all platforms since you can rent them anywhere these days. Especially if you're one of those weird people who still gets DVDs off of Netflix. A fun game you can play is to also try and find the best sex scenes on Netflix.
