mightysparks' 100 'Sexiest' Moviesby DaveHedgehog | created - 12 Dec 2015 | updated - 12 Dec 2015 | Public
This is a complicated list, but I used the definition of "films that inspire lust, romance and longing within me". Some may be obvious, some may not.
I included some TV shows and though they are ranked as best as possible as a whole, for some I've used noteworthy 'sexy' episodes as a placeholder but they are still ranked as the entire show.
The top 13 is pretty solid, the rest could depend on my mood. #1 hasn't changed since January 2007 and I doubt it ever will.
There are 101 because I included one video game because I had to.
