Some fuckbuddies like to strictly do the deed and nothing more. However, there are pairs who enjoy some Netflix-and-chill action. Movies are a great way to start the night before getting physical with a fuckbuddy. They are also great to watch during the post-sex cuddle. But, it’s important to remember that cuddling with a fuckbuddy can be dangerous territory. Movies are powerful enough to make us laugh, cry, and even fall in love. You don’t want to put yourself or your fuckbuddy in a situation that may cause the development of feelings. However, there are movies that won’t cause a wave of confusing emotions. We’re not saying to avoid all Romcoms or serious movies, but rather to be careful when having some options on deck. Emotions that are preferable to evoke are excitement, sensuality, adrenaline, and happiness. You’ll notice that pure drama is not on the list. That’s because we don’t think it’s a good idea to introduce dramatic feelings into the FWB relationship. However, there are definitely some dramatic options on the list (so drama lovers, fear not!). Hopefully, our list of safe and playful options will provide some flicks that would entertain you and your fuckbuddy.

HORROR

This might be the absolute best genre for fuckbuddy netflix-and-chill movie night. Why? Because horror movies are often very ridiculous and tend to steer clear of super romantic plotlines. The fear they produce will allow you to cuddle up to your fuckbuddy without it being romantic. Imagine it like this: cuddling out of fear when the twins in The Shining stare creepily down the hallway is very different from cuddling out of sadness or endearment when Rose watches Jack freeze in Titanic. The latter is way too mushy.

 

  • The Exorcist 
  • The Silence of the Lambs
  • It
  • The Shining
  • Us

 

 

COMEDY 

Laughter is always a great element to bring into the fuckbuddy relationship, which is why we love the comedic genre for fuckbuddy movie night; however, you must be careful with this genre. We suggest avoiding any type of Romantic Comedy because it’s not a good idea to introduce romance into the fuckbuddy atmosphere. Finding a non-Romantic Comedy is actually harder than it sounds. Some of the most hilarious movies are also very romantic. We aren’t telling you that there can’t be any romance, we’re simply telling you to avoid comedies that are overtly romantic. 

 

  • The Hangover
  • Superbad
  • Mean Girls
  • Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me
  • Anchorman

 

 

THRILLERS

If you aren’t in the mood for a comedy, go with a thriller. Thrillers are awesome to watch with a fuckbuddy because they, like Horror movies, avoid uber-romantic plotlines. Additionally, they get the heart racing and pump you full of adrenaline and excitement. They often include a lot of action and a lot of hot sex scenes. They will most definitely get you and your fuckbuddy in the mood. 

 

  • Seven
  • Shutter Island
  • Zodiac
  • Black Swan
  • American Psycho

 

 

PERIOD/BIOPIC FILMS

This is for the intellectual fuckbuddy pair, which we fully support! If you are looking for a smart movie to watch that includes a bit of history, we are here for it. Like comedy, it can be hard to find a historical movie that isn’t overly romantic or overly dramatic. Like romantic vibes, we also advise against deeply dramatic vibes. It will likely feel weird to start tearing up and getting overly emotional next to your FWB. Luckily, there are some options for you: 

 

  • The Help 
  • Marie Antoinette
  • The Social Network
  • Straight Outta Compton

 

 

The movies that we put on this list are ones that we felt are of solid quality, do not thrive on a romantic plotline, and are sure to inspire sexual or exciting feelings. Also, here’s a little tip: Don’t watch a movie with your fuck buddy about fuck buddies. Fuck buddy movies always turn into romcoms and that’s just too deep. Now go grab some popcorn, some lube, and give your fuckbuddy a ring!
