They say that chivalry is dead (and good riddance, frankly – we’re all capable of opening our own car doors, thank you very much) and old-fashioned romance might be going the same way.
But it’s not all bad news – for all the cynics, singletons and red-blooded humans out there, Showmax brings the steamiest 18+ rated content you’ll find on any streaming platform.
Here are some of the R-rated, absolutely NSFW series and sexy movies for adults only on Showmax – but please remember to hide your kids before you start watching. These are all 18+ rated and are for adults only.
Oh, and here’s a tip – make sure you’re watching these series on your own Profile, so they don’t show up when your kids start watching on theirs. Read more about Showmax Profiles here.
When her son leaves for college, 40-something divorcee Eve Fletcher finds herself at a crossroads. She has to redefine her life as a single woman, and she has just as much growing up to do as her son. Kathryn Hahn is picture-perfect as Eve.
You’ll be rooting her to be happy and to figure out how to get the loving she desperately needs. The show highlights the struggles that people go through after divorce and the awkwardness of dating, whether it’s about starting a relationship or just about sex. And it makes fun of them in a meaningful, touching way.
Christine is a law intern by day, and a high-end escort by night. And she’s not just in it for the money – it turns out that she’s in it for the thrills, too. Vulture called this series, starring Riley Keough and executive produced by Steven Soderbergh, “TV’s most adult show” and Vox said that it’s “the most fascinating show on television”. It’s incredibly sexy, risqué and racy, and is only available on Showmax.
This groundbreaking series about a group of gay women living and loving in LA made waves when it first aired in 2004, and even in 2018 the sex scenes seem taboo – never have we seen this kind of openness around gay sex on screen.
But it’s not just about sex – it’s about women making space for themselves in their careers, in their families, and in a cut-throat city where everyone puts their own needs and desires first. The full boxset of the L Word is on Showmax, so you can binge to your heart’s content on all the kinkiness, drama and intrigue that Jenny, Bette, Tina, Dana, Marina and Shane have to offer.
In a show about the rise of the porn industry in New York in the 1970s, it’s no surprise that there’s a lot of explicit sex – between working girls and their Johns; between a former prostitute and her date; between a girl and herself.
The thing is, this show isn’t only about sex – it’s about women, about business, about the Mafia, about danger and risk – and half of the episodes are directed by women. So expect the kind of sex scene that is directed for and about women, instead of as a way to present the naked female body for the male gaze.
If that sounds too high-brow, imagine this – a woman finishing the job herself after sleeping with an unsatisfactory date, not to be seen as sexy, not to be “seen” at all, but because she’s human, and frustrated, and she knows what she needs.
