Cruel Intentions, starring Reese Witherspoon, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Ryan Phillipe, and Selma Blair is a fresh take on teen romance that is filled with enough sexual tension.

Wild Orchid (1989)

IMDb Rating: 4.6/10

Wild Orchid is a clear and simple erotic film, with no two sides to it. The story is somewhat pointless and doesn’t get together. But if it’s love you’re looking for you’ll see a lot of it here. The movie shows the story of a virginal young woman played by Carre Otis, who is hired in the potential of an international lawyer. She lands at Rio de Janerio where she meets the leading man, James (Mickey Rourke). He is a wealthy proprietor and much a self-made man with an unpleasant youth (just like Dornan in 50 Shades).

His place in the movie, though, is as dominating as Christian Grey and there is some certain similarity between the two characters.

The movie also incorporates elements of supernaturalism that seem excessive at first but ultimately reel the audience in.

The two appear to be happy together until Connie meets a rare book dealer by the name of Paul Martel (Olivier Martinez) who gives a life full of sexual adventures and racy romance.

Quills (2000)

IMDb Rating: 7.3/10

Quills have an astonishing star cast of Geoffrey Rush, Joaquin Phoenix, and Kate Winslet. The movie is based on Marquis de Sade, the man on whom the word sadism is established. The man is very wicked, despite holding an undeniably strong character and wild determination. There is not a lot of sexual content in the movie, and only traces of romance between the Abbe played by Phoenix and the maid Madeleine (Kate Winslet). For someone who is looking only for romance, this movie might not be the most suitable pick. But, if you’re interested in the man who first began the entire sadomasochistic journey reflected in 50 Shades as well, then you can watch this movie.
