A Genre Affair: What Your Movie Preference Says About Your Sexual Preferences

By Emmeline Peaches, 07.12.2020

Movies play quite a large part in all our lives. During COVID-19 we’ve felt the loss of cinema and the boom of home viewing and, for years, we’ve courted each other through movie nights (be it through drive in movie nights or snuggled up evenings on the sofa).

But what do our genre preferences say about our sexual preferences?

Here’s what your taste in movies might suggest when it comes to your tastes under the sheets:

Action

When it comes to sex and love you’re a bold figure. Confident, daring, and a little bit punchy, you take a no-nonsense approach to sex and make your needs known. 

Equipment is important too. Action movies have powerful and sleek cars, but there are tools that can cause even more excitement in the bedroom, and (chances are) if you like your sex like your movies then you own them.

Comedy

You don’t take sex too seriously (and that isn’t a bad thing).

Taking a playful stance in the bedroom, you are open to experimentation and take any mishaps with a light-heart and lovable laughter. 

Having a bit of humour in the bedroom works wonders. It’s a good thing that comedy is something that you take such pleasure.

Drama

Some might think that being a drama fan makes your love like equally melodramatic. This couldn’t be further from the case.

You view sex as something deep, meaningful, and loving. 

Taking a very considerate approach to your love life, you know that the world can have its struggles, so you cherish those moments of sheer joy even more. 

Physical touch and closeness are especially important, and you’re quite inclined to stroking and skin contact. 

Horror

You like things edgy, sharp, and thrilling. 

BDSM appeals to you deeply, as does sexual roleplay; anything which inspires that rushing of the heart and quickening of the breath. 

Just be careful when having that blindfold applied – you never know what dark being might emerge in the darkness.

Science Fiction

Sometimes you don’t know what interests you more – sex or all the latest innovations surrounding it. Sex toys, sex tech, new sexual research, and different cultural approaches. 

Sex isn’t just something you engage in but something that you love to learn about (and talk about with anyone equally interested in listening).

Your mind is excited by the idea of meaningful conversations and promising innovations. You might even consider yourself a sapiosexual. 

May you find a likeminded sexual scholar to…ahem…converse with. 

Western

You might think ‘rope’ but you’d be mistaken. 

Lovers of Westerns are lovers of a more tender and old-fashioned view of sex. 

Sex for you is wholesome and comfortable but that doesn’t make you a ‘fuddy duddy’. 

Your love life is sweet, long-standing and true. If you’re with someone in the bedroom then you love them loyally in more ways than one, and you both enjoy yourselves relishing in that bond.

Thriller

Like the horror fan, you’re not opposed to a little bit of danger during your sex sessions.

Power play holds an appeal to you. BDSM allows for a safe way to bring some thrilling moments into your intimate moments and you relish the idea of a firm hand grasping your body…safe words and consent in place, of course. Thrills are only fun when matched with trust and respect, after all.

Romance

The classic movie choice for sex, you hold a sweetness in your approach to sex. Candle lit sessions, fragrant massages, and romantic dinners finished with chocolate-coated strawberries; sex is as much about the build-up for you as it is the actual event, and it’s all the better for it. 

And That’s All For Now!

How closely do your movie preferences and love life match up? Are you a pure mirror of your favourite genre or a bit of a movie mashup? 

Whatever your outcome, it might be worth exploring the match between your favourite film genre and your sexual actions. You never know – you might just find a whole new way to enjoy yourself.
